Avatar n tn I have a CT scan report of my grandmother who is very unwell these days..She is having temp loss of memory, high blood pressure. Could someone please please please translate this in plain English language.
Avatar f tn hee immediately took me to emergancy where they took a million blood tests heart tests and a ct scan. nothing came up. i flew through all the tests. and they said it was not tia and no need for mri. i have low blood pressure and wonder was it low flow tia. my neck has been hurting me a lot recently too i wonder would that have anything to do with it. i'm very healthy no drink or smoke 46 years old. no history of ms or early stroke in family.
Avatar m tn (mini-stroke)? From what I find online, hypodensity on a CT scan in a patient who has had a stroke is bad news.... this is something you and your dad (if he is able) need to discuss with his physician. In patients who've had a minor stroke or a transient ischemic attack (mini-stroke), hypodensity in the white matter of the brain means extra risk of the potential for a future stroke. (See PM) I have a parent who suffered from a T.I.A.
Avatar f tn But the first ct scan I had showed nothing it wasn't until the second ct scan that showed a tiny tiny bit and the doc said they almost missed it.
Avatar m tn they stated that my medicine levels were within therapeutic range but that I was okay sent me home three days later had a super bad headache my right eye was twitching like crazy and started to drooping also my tounge was still numb and felt weird called the neurologist she sent me to the ER to be checked for stroke symptoms, they did a CT scan and it stated this below do these findings meant some point I have had a stroke....
Avatar m tn The person that you are talking about may have had a sudden loss of neurological function due to problem in the blood flow to the brain. it could have been a mini stroke with a normal CT or MRI scan. There are certain causes of mini stroke, which I hope have been excluded. These are seizures, migraines, mini stroke affecting memory areas etc. Is he a hypertensive and how is his blood glucose control?
Avatar n tn Over xmas he went blind in his left eye and the eye doctor said he may have had a mini stroke. He thought it was due to the tumor that was remaining. He seen his neurologist and he said it wasnt the cause. They ran all kinds of test from blood work, mri, cat scan and the artery check. And we aare waiting for the artery check results. The doctors could not find anything on the ct and mri. Last night he was having eye pain and called 911.
Avatar f tn Suspected stroke/brain bleed from CT scan.
Avatar m tn 1 to 2 minutes and has yet to go away (now over a week). A CT scan was done and showed a right cerebellar infarct (1.2cm). I was told it was a possible mini stroke. Then an MRI was done and was told I have multiple infarctions on the brain moreso on the right than the left. It states that I have chronic microvascular disease of the brain and am to see a neurologist this week to determin if it actually was a mini stroke.
Avatar n tn It is good that the initial diagnostic tests were normal. Stroke usually is seen in imaging studies such as CT scan or MRI. Other differentials of stroke that we can consider are migraine, hypoglycemia, electrolyte imbalance, infection or seizure. For proper diagnosis, direct evaluation and additional diagnostic tests may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted with your follow-up consultation. Best regards.
Avatar n tn s (mini strokes) and also suffers from chronic kidney disease/diabetes type 2/c.o.p.d. She recently had a CT scan to check for stroke damage and has been told she has severe vascular disease causing mini strokes (possibly?) - but can the symptoms include shaking? We have mentioned to Dr's that her right hand sometimes shakes, now her right leg and the other day her whole body shook whilst standing up nearly causing her to fall. It passes after a short time.
Avatar n tn They thought he originally had a seizure but after conducting a CT scan with contrast it showed he had a massive stroke on the left side of his brain. My father has had several mini strokes (6) in the last 8 months but has always recovered. It affected him on his left side of his body. Dr are telling us he will never wake up but he is breathing on his own and seems to hear us.
Avatar n tn Did they MRI your brain? After the mini-stroke, did they do a CT scan? Did they follow up with an MRA/MRV (MRI of blood vessels of your head)? Have they done a doppler of your carotid arteries?
Avatar f tn Hi, I am 20 years old and fail healthy. I was rushed to the ER yesterday while experiencing left side of my body being entirely numb while on the phone with dispatch, I completely lost control of my face and arm. I wasn't able to speak or understand anything correctly. When I arrived at the hospital they did a CT scan and blood work. The results didn't show a sign of a stroke just stress.
Avatar n tn m a 76 year old lady who recently spent a week in the hospital because of episodes of TIA. After a MRI a CT scan, EEG, and ECG, they told me I had a mild stroke. While in the hospital they put me in heparin drip to thin my blood to start with, then they put me on plavix. I have episodes of bad sharp pain around my left temple coming down sometimes to may face, and from time to time especially after i take my BP meds with the plavix I get nauseated and light headed.
Avatar f tn A couple of weeks ago I felt my left arm going numb, so I went to the doctor, and he sent me to the ER. After a battery of tests (MRI, CT scan, carotid arteries, heart echocardiagram), the emergency room doctor decided I probably had a mini-stroke or a TIA. I had a mini-stroke about 8 years ago, and it showed up on the current tests, but nothing else did, so they can't be sure if I had another one in the same spot or a TIA whose symptoms have gone away.
