500374 tn?1210075013 I didn't have a brainstem stroke, but I did have a stroke and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? Also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.
Avatar f tn My vision has deteriorated since the stroke, and my left eyesight is terrible, i have just been diagnosed with glaucoma and diabetes, and they are looking into my eyesight issues with no joy. I am under a psychiatrist for depression, but nothing seems to be working for me, im on medication, ive been tried on different medication over the 8years and im currently on 40mg of fluoxetine a day. My depression seems deeper since the stroke and i am struggling daily.
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, she had other problems with her eyes, so she didnt have the best eyesight to begin with. Then, the stroke stole alot of the eyesight she had left. The doctor said it might return, but when she went to several eye specialists, they said it would not return after a stroke. You will just have to wait and see if it improves.
151668 tn?1239924705 After spending almost 6 hours at two different doctors offices yesterday, they finally ruled out a mini stroke (TIA). I am told that I simply had a migraine, even though I didn't have a "severe" headache to go with the loss of eyesight. Apparently, migraines come in different forms, which I had no idea. I did have a dull headache afterwards for a few hours, but had no clue that it was a migraine. Either way, I'm just glad it wasn't a stroke of some sort. Too scary!

458406 tn?1219588458 Dear Dr Hagan, Thank you so much for your professional advise, I am most great full to you, the only trouble I have is in convincing my father there’s something wrong with him, he’s of old school, nearly 70 and thinks his body can just mend its self, he wouldn’t except that he had had a transient attack the last time, even our local hospital failed to notice what had happened to him, it was only one of my friends who I was talking to at the time just after my fathers attack, who explained to m
Avatar n tn If you have stroke risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, family history of stroke in someone less than 50,high cholesterol, smoking, heart disease, then these could represent mini strokes. But you are relatively young for a stroke, and the diagnosis should be taken into clinical context. Best of luck.
Avatar m tn Numbness and tingling that comes and goes can be due to a mini stroke or transient ischemic attack, compression of spinal nerves, Vit B12 deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, anemia, vaso-vagal attack, low testosterone, anemia, lupus and other autoimmune disorders (a normal ANA may indicate rare ANA negative lupus or a mixed connective tissue disease), heavy metal poisoning, multiple sclerosis, hypothyroidism, diabetes and panic attack. It can also be a type of seizure.
455605 tn?1206054665 Ironically, everything went back to normal with the exceptions of the head rushes, which the doctor had said were mini seizures. The head rushes bring on the depression. The head rushes bring on the anger. The head rushes bring on poor balance. The head rushes bring on poor concentration and inability to perform. The head rushes bring on limited motor skills. I keep trying to figure out what part of that the neuro-dudes, as I affectionately call them, don't understand.
Avatar n tn I am not sure what might have caused his sudden blindness. Could he have had a mini-stroke, perhaps? These things can strike without warning. He's not terribly old at 11. I doubt it would have been caused by 'old age'. I don't mean to sound hard about this upsetting thing, but believe it or not, he will get used to not being able to see. At first he will be somewhat confused, and will need a little extra support. But I presume his hearing is still ok?
Avatar f tn So It couldnt be a mini stroke. Hours later my neck started to feel tingly like if it had fallen asleep. Then parts of my right arm were feeling weird. Then my neck and arm started to itch. It felt like this sensation was making its way down through my body. Im starting to get worried. I called a neurologist to set an appointment but they havent called me back. Has anyone else felt this before? If so what was your experience???
Avatar m tn The experience seemed to be like a mini stroke. Not unusual that I get dizzy which is oftentimes accompanied with weird vision. I see 'stars/shiny spots' and my eyesight reduces until the point I can barely see anything but the dots and think I'm going to faint. I tried sitting down, resting, nothing helps. Shortness of breath, heavy breathing and increased heart beat, ringing ear happens several times a month.
1142731 tn?1335095649 I felt totally fine except I could not see, I had no weakness or side effects that would make me even think I had a mini stroke. I do not know if they call optic neurosis "inflammation" here, he mentioned that I had neither. (He was actually the rudeness person I have ever seen, my husband had his eyes tested by him also and said he was like that to him also.
Avatar n tn Now we were told the diagnostic tests done on his head, heart, and carotids were normal.....no stroke or mini strokes but he kept leaning to right side. This seeemed to somewhat improved with home PT. 2 months later he was hospitalized with again pneumonia and atrial fib so underwent several diagnostic testing. Found out he is silenting aspirating causing pneumonia which causes the atrial fib.
Avatar f tn They did MRI's and scans of my head and confirmed it was a mini stroke but luckily I did not loose the use of my arm and just had the numbness or tingling feeling you would have if you went to a dentist and got novacaine. He did neurological testing and told me my left side was weak and also my left arm was swollen which I did not even notice.
Avatar n tn Hello, Well you just described all of my symptoms in your 1st paragraph when I had a TIA (transient Ischmic attack) also known as a mini stroke, the only difference between that and a full blown stroke is that there is no permanent damage and usually your symtoms go away within 24 hours. After the first TIA I had with the same symptoms you had, I sought out another NS and he reviewed my MRI's and ordered more. My chiari went from borderline to 3mm in 2 months.

Avatar n tn My name is Chelsey Messer...i've had migranes since i was nine years old and severe migranes with stroke symptoms since i was 12 years old. The only reason i know so much about all of this is because the doctor i had in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho happened to have the exact same problem. I'm sorry to tell you all of this, but through extensive research there is still nothing that can be done about these migranes, but i CAN tell you how to greatly reduce them.
Avatar n tn I don't know what to do. I hope it's not a mini stroke or TIA? I'm sure if I did all the testing, it would come back normal.

Avatar n tn Hi, The birth control patch is a thin, beige, 1¾-inch (4½-centimeter) square patch that sticks to the skin. It releases hormones through the skin into the bloodstream to prevent pregnancy. The combination of the hormones progesterone and estrogen in the patch prevents ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovaries during a girl's monthly cycle). The side effects that some women have while using the patch are similar to those experienced with the birth control pill.
Avatar f tn On 18 August 2011 I suffered from an episode, which at the time I thought may have been a stroke. It began very suddenly when I said a few words incorrectly, which was closely followed by struggling to find the words I wanted to say. Next I remember getting a mass of tingling down my right thigh and from that point, I lost the ability to move my right foot forward and I needed to swing my leg forward to walk.
1656925 tn?1302280387 Have they done an MRA/MRV to check for signs of TIA (mini-stroke) activity or other blood vessel abnormalities, such as aneurysm? It seems they must have seen something in the basilar area on a test? Why did they think it was seizure activity at first? Was it based on an EEG? The article indicates it's difficult to identify basilar migraine with testing- did they take an MRI or CT scan right on the heels of an attack?
Avatar n tn the surrounding pink, healthy tissue ) these optic nerves, often seen in far sighted people, are felt to be most at risk for what is called an AION- anterior ischemic optic neuropathy- or a mini stroke to the nerve- the theory is that the large amount of optic nerve tissue "chokes" off the blood supply, thus causing a stroke- it is only a theory, though the correlation between AION victims and the"disc at risk" is quite striking. i hope this helped. Posted by Thank you.
Avatar n tn I went to my GP who examined me and said probably I had mini stroke and advised me to go back to the hospital. Next day I went to the treating doctor at the hospital and told him my symptoms. He kept his mouth shut about it. Instead, he started telling me that he got my MRI report. He told me that my blindness was due to white matter clotting behind my brain and as a result the brain was unable to recognise anything thus I became blind.

Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?
