Avatar m tn I am 78 and had a mini stroke 11 Jun 2014. I was placed in the hospital for overnight observation and was released the following day to my family doctor. I have high blood pressure so he placed me on Exforge 10-325-25mg HCT and also Clopidogrel 75mg In the hospital I had a MRA, MRI, CATSCAN, Chest Xray and several blood tests. I lost peripheral vision in the left eye. When I left the hospital I had this slight lump across from my left ear about 1 inch long pointing to the top of my head.
Avatar f tn Is it possible that without me realizing it that I may have had a mini stroke and not know it or am I over reacting? Since then my blood pressure has been 150/90.
Avatar m tn Suddenly felt unwell. Ringing in right ear. Temporary hearing loss in right ear. Dizziness. Stood up and completely lost my balance like drunkenness. Thought I was dying. Recovered a few minutes later.
Avatar n tn The doctors cannot tell us what happened to cause this, they simply do not know. They also told us it appears that she had a stroke prior to this stroke, and she never knew about it. They thought that it was possible that she had a brain infection that caused this. We are up in the air and are still trying to cope with this. They also said it appears that she had several mini-strokes. She is now coherent, has her memory, no facial drooping and is raring to go.
1038794 tn?1252925252 I have a inner ear problem, and I think the major problem you are having is not coming from the inner ear; could be something affecting the ear. I still think it is a neurovascular problem.
Avatar n tn I read a article about migraines are related to strokes or that they do damage to the brain as would a stroke. Could you clear this up for me? It also stated that for people who get aura's on the onset of a migraine that is is actually a sign that the brain isn't getting enough oxygen. Is this just a theory? What are the signifigance of this info to people with migraines?
Avatar f tn Are you taking any meds for your anxiety? Anxiety can cause many strange symptoms. I've had many that you mentioned and more. With anxiety it's very common to have muscle pain all over your body. The symptoms your describing does sound like anxiety but to ease your mind you may want to see your Dr. Take care.

Avatar n tn I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a stroke in the cerebellum and signs of a mini stroke that they classified as 'old'. I fortunately did not have ongoing loss of speech, or weakness in limbs etc...but have suffered from weird dizziness and electric shock feelings in my head. They seem to get better - but then get wrose again....Dr's are saying it is maybe anxiety --but is not. I have had anxiety before and these are different.
Avatar n tn My son was with mme my face and my left side changed. Only now as my doctor started test can it go unditected if a mini stroke?
Avatar n tn He went to one neurologist, who said it was ear infection. Finally, he was told to get a second opinion with neurologist. They did a MRI on his brain which showed he had a mild stroke, which effects the part of his brain that controls balance. He has not had his follow-up appt. with the 2nd neurologist, but he said it probably occured during surgery. Why wouldn't the heart specialist suspect a stroke? What kind of therapy, if any may help him? Or medications?
Avatar n tn I cannot give you a clinical diagnosis over the internet, and the information you provide is limited. On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
Avatar f tn The right side of my face felt tight and drawn and I was having shooting pain in my right ear. I felt queasy and tired so I went back to bed and took more tylenol and around 1:00 pm just did not feel good. The headache was worse and my neck was stiff in the back. I went to the walk up care center and was sent to the hospital for stat CT scan. The scan was normal and was given Rx for pain. Got up next day felt even worse..
Avatar n tn hi i had tia or mini stroke july 5. my speech were slurred and vision blurry. i have recovered well except my speech is somewhat off. my doctor said i will be on coumadin for six months. he started me out with a high dose but not i'm down to 2mg. i just try to be careful and know that if anything else happen that its in our heavenly Fathers hand.
Avatar n tn It is nonsense that incontinence after a stroke is forever. There is more nonsense going on about how to care for the stroke damaged elderly than I can believe. So never give up hope.
Avatar n tn My 55 yr old mother had a "massive" hemorrhagic stroke Feb. 18/05. The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down.
Avatar dr m tn For example, I saw a man in his late 30’s who came to see me with 3 days of left ear sound distortion and reverberation with mild fullness. He had no other problems, including hearing loss. His exam was completely normal. Most doctors at this point will give a diagnosis of Eustachian tube dysfunction, where due to mild nasal inflammation, the tube that connects to the ear is partially blocked, leading to pressure changes that can cause ear problems.
Avatar n tn I am a 45 yr old female. I had a mini stroke 2 years ago. Don't know the cause. Also diagnosed with diabetes. High blood pressure. Since stroke I have been having irregular periods. Usually about every 3 weeks, used to be very heavy now very light. Lasting about 10 days. In last year right before my period my ears hurt and I get light-headed and nauseated. Have had teeth and ears checked, they are o.k. On meds for diabetes, blood pressure,anxiety and stroke for 2 years.
Avatar n tn Or maybe you are experiencing TIAs Transiant Ischemic Attacks, which are mini strokes that can lead up to a big stroke, possibly fatal.
Avatar n tn Hi I'm terribly upset. My dad has just had a stroke. He's 72 and is currently in hospital virtually asleep full time. We know that it is caused by a blood clot stemming from Atrial Fibrillation and it has affected his left side (No vision, left arm and leg) The doctor has painted a very bleak picture which was very devastating and right now at this moment it just seems that there is no hope. Can anyone re-assure me that if he survives there is some hope for quality of life.
Avatar f tn After an MRI several mini stroke scars were also discovered. Stents is a much more simple procedure than 4 bypass repairs. So ask your Doctor if he does not give you a good answer fire him and find a good one. It is your life.
677292 tn?1226291236 At the time she exhibited some signs and symptoms that pointed towards stroke, but her story just didn't necessarily gel altogether (I'm an ex Paramedic). Unfortunately my Daughter at times struggles with the truth, she lives with my ex wife in another State. The end result that time after a battery of tests, including CT's and MRI's was that nothing showed up, my Daughter's symptoms resolved after 2-3 weeks and life progressed.
451975 tn?1372332199 They did all the normal tests MRI, MRA, and tons of blood work. Although the CT scan showed something that they thought may have been a mini stroke the other tests ruled it out and they diagnosed me with a silent or atypical migraine. I had all symptoms of a stroke. The numbness, tingling, drooping of the eyes and mouth on one side, no facial expressions and I could hardly talk. It has been one week and my strength is still not back on my right side and and my speech is still very slurred.
Avatar f tn Anyone functioning well enough to answer, to discuss your coping with stroke deficits that have remained for a year ago or longer. My stroke was more than 3.5 years ago and I still have some resentment about everything that I can't do. I would like to get a better attitude about it. But either way you are handling it, it would be helpful for me to hear about anyone else who still struggles with problems.
Avatar n tn The consensus is that between the heart stem that is wavy and has unique area that blood could sit (and shouldnt) and the issues with the blood and Histine - that I probably formed a build up or clot in the heart that broke off a small piece (MRI showed an older mini stroke in the Cerebellum as well) and then the rest of it broke loose and traveled as well (to the Cerebellum area) when I suffered the stroke that I knew about. I had no idea that I had previously had a mini stroke??
Avatar n tn I didn't bother going to the doctor for it, as it improved in a couple days. It took about a month before all the feeling returned. I figured it was a mini-stroke at the site of that facial nerve. One of the symptoms that people with Lyme have is chronic sinus infections, not relieved by antibiotics. This might be related to inflammation caused by the Lyme bacteria. Several people at LymeNet.org have use Serrapeptase, an enzyme, to relieve this.
Avatar f tn Then when I was 18, one day, I developed excruciating localized pain on the right side of my head by my ear. It pretty much never went away, although there were definitely times when it was worse than others. My head still hurts all of the time in that spot, although it's not nearly as bad as it was when it started usually. Shortly thereafter, I started developing balance issues, sensitivity to certain types of lighting, and cognitive problems.
