Mini stroke numbness

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke numbness

stroke

Avatar f tn I honestly didn't think a thing about it until I told my husband last night and he said it might have been a mini stroke. My mother (deceased) had experienced these in the past and she had severe heart problems that the doctors said may have caused the strokes. I looked up the symptoms, but I only really had numbness in my face and a slight pain over my eye. Could this have been a mini stroke? Should I see a doctor now even though I have no symptoms? Thank you.
Avatar f tn The numbness and tingling, troubled speech have disappeared but his headache has not. Could this be the signs of a mini stroke? Please help! No, my nephew did not go to the hospital which I freaked out about because I just got off the phone with my mother about the whole situation. People failed to inform me til' now. Had I known, I would have insisted he went to the ER.
Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
1474856 tn?1288292649 Transient Ischemic Attack Symptoms can include: numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.
Avatar m tn although she seemed to have suffered a mini stroke (although doctors did not say this exactly), is there anything we can do to make sure this does not happen again? She is slightly overweight with a BMI of 27-28, and for the past weeks we have started to exercise more than before to become healthier... We eat generally good and a well balanced diet, but I am trying to make her completely quit food high in fat/sugars.
Avatar f tn The most concerning cause of numbness on one side of the body is a stroke, as you mentioned. Please understand I am not trying to imply you have a stroke, but only that this is one possibility. Strokes occur predominantly in people with risk factors: smokers, high cholesterol, diabetics, hypertensives, and people over the age of 55. However, they can occur in any age.
Avatar m tn When I got that feeling for the first time about two months ago, I went to a neurologist and he was suspecious of mini stroke but not sure of it. MRI was very clean and did not detect any problem in my brain. I am 60 years old and I've been taking one 81 mg aspirin a day for the last 7 years and I increased that to two perday(morning & night) since this happened..
Avatar n tn Your blood circulation may be impeded due to sleeping position is the first thing that comes to mind. Certain medication for some individuals has that affect. •Other medical conditions, including underactive thyroid, abnormal levels of calcium, potassium, or sodium in your body and lack of vitamin B12 or other vitamins, etc.. Could be associated with neurological disorder, or transient ischemic attack (TIA), sometimes called a "mini-stroke".
Avatar m tn However it would be wise to get your symptoms checked out to rule out mini stroke. I agree that stress can cause these symptoms as well. Well wishes to you!
Avatar m tn it could be signs of a mini stroke. It could also be panic attacks. I've suffered from panic attacks, and they can cause numbness, heavy breathing and tingling. See a doctor about it, they will probably offer some tests. When I had similar symptoms, they gave me a CT scan and discovered everything was normal. I was later diagnosed with panic disorder.
Avatar f tn My question since the numbness, the buzzing the spasms the weakness, come and go could I be having mini strokes? I'm not doubting his diagnosis I'm just wondering because the numbness and the buzzing etc I can put up with but the word searching is scary because my mom has ALzheimers and my dad has had a stroke.
481864 tn?1208328209 G'day, My dad had a mini stroke on Sunday, basically he had numbness in his body. The GP he saw within an hour or two of onset said he had experienced a 'ministroke'. He was walking with a limp on the way to the doctor but was walking well when he left. He later felt dizzy and nauseous. A day later he was taken to another doctor who also confirmed that he suffered a 'mini stroke' and did a quick blod test to determine a very high cholesterol level. He has been given medication to treat this.
Avatar f tn The EKG, CT-Scan and blood work all came back normal and later during the week, so did the ultrasound on my neck arteries and the echo on my heart. My internist said it could be a mini-stroke but the symptoms persist a week later, with complete numbness of the tongue and lips. He told me it might be a side effect of my anti-depressant, Pristiq, and has taken the dose down from 100mg to 50mg. I am to report in next week to let him know what my symptoms are doing.
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 m tn Hi, Stroke is diagnosed through several techniques: a neurological examination, CT scans (most often without contrast enhancements) or MRI scans, Doppler ultrasound, and arteriography. The diagnosis of stroke itself is clinical, with assistance from the imaging techniques. Imaging techniques also assist in determining the subtypes and cause of stroke.
Avatar f tn I would love to know what this is and what causes it. I've heard this could be TIA's, Absence Seizuzres or Mini Stroke. Has anyone have a similar experience? Thank You! This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/295029'>short memory loss seizures</a>.
Avatar n tn Hello dear, You probably had a Transient Ischaemic Attack or a mini stroke caused by the temporary disturbance of blood supply to a restricted area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that usually persists for less than 24 hours.The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision ; difficulty speaking (aphasia); weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis); and numbness or tingling (paresthesia), usually on one side of the body.
1266422 tn?1270242816 I thought of botulism, listeria, and stroke. Stroke was the most prominent one I thought about because of the numbness on the left side of my body, lack of speech and delirious hallucinations. I'm completely lost as to what this condition is. Help?

Avatar f tn Migraine is usually preceded by aura which is characterized by symptoms like visual symptoms, ringing in the ears, tingling numbness, and slurred speech. However stroke can also present with similar symptoms. Do you have risk factors for stroke like high BP or high cholesterol? It is important that you get further evaluation done to make sure it is migraine and not stroke. There are very effective medications are in the market today to abort migraine attacks and also to prevent migraines.
Avatar f tn I have been having very strange sympotms all day and not sure if I am having a mini stroke or brain tumor or maybe an anurisem when i go to bed tonight, but I am very scared, but everyone is telling me it's anxiety. My question is how can you tell if what you have is anxeity or not, how do you know if you go to the dr's and they think its anxiety that they are right? I have had nubness in my left arm all day, as well as in my face.
Avatar n tn My 53 year old husband is having 2-3 weekly TIAs or mini-strokes -- these always affect the right side of his body with facial numbness, eyelid drooping, difficulty swallowing and trouble walking straight - most times, but not always, also with an instant headache and perfuse sweating.
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 About 6 months ago I got a numbness on the left side of my face.It started at around the same time I had a canker sore(or coldsore) on my upper gum on my left side of my mouth.I went to the doctor and had an MRI which came back fine so he said it was probably Bells Palsy and gave me medicine. Every so often the numbness comes back and its still only on the left side of my face.I also notice that since then I have had that canker sore come back a few times in the same exact spot.
Avatar n tn My left arm and hand were still numb and my left leg was having some numbness. I was also very weak. About 3 hours after my symptoms started they did a CT scan - it was normal, by then, all of my symptoms were gone. About 11 hours after my symptoms started they did an MRI without contrast -- it also came back normal. I was discharged and they put "acute pheriphial vertigo" on my discharge papers. I followed up with an ENT and he said he didn't think it was vertigo.
Avatar n tn I had a hemorragic stroke (medulla) in 2001. I have basically recovered pretty well. In the past week and a half I have three times had kaleidascope-like flashing lights in my eyes in a crescent moom shape. Should I be worried about another sroke? I would have gone to a doctor already but I have no insurance anymore so have put it off.
