Avatar n tn 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 Is this possibly a seizure or mini stroke? Should I have an EEG even though the episode is now over?
Avatar f tn He has had 2 spells since where he was hospitalized, they did not know the first time if it was a mini stroke, on the second time they ruled out mini strokes and diagnosed him with seizures. He was put on seizure meds, the dosage has been changed 3 times. He seems to be doing well now. But he does nothing, he don't get dressed lots of days, he watches TV or sleeps. He was never like this before, he has been outside a couple of times, to ride the mower. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn Why were you put on Plavix in the beginning... for heart attack or stroke? Absolutely going off of it can lead to a mini-stroke/TIA, but going odd wont CAUSE one. Unfortunately you have to go off before a biopsy as it makes your blood thinner and there is too much risk of bleeding. Don't worry too much about the TIA, most have no long standing effects unless you have a LOT of them. So you want to go back on the Plavix and DON'T miss any doses! It should work right away.
Avatar n tn Hi I was wondering if the misdiagnosis of a TIA/Mini Stroke is possible. Recently I was at my friends house for a social gathering and I experienced what I thought at the time was a mini stroke. Symptoms appeared out of nowhere and included drooping of facial muscles on left side of face, slurring and difficulty forming sentences, chest pain, visual hallucinations (including but not limited to room breathing i.
Avatar f tn I'm not a doctor, but I've seen patients with strokes and these sound like a-typical symptoms after a stroke. I also watched my grandfather go through a stroke and he had none of these things. But again, I'm not a doctor. You should go get scanned to see if maybe you're having little mini strokes or the strokes triggered some sort of seizure disorder. I hope everything works out for you.
Avatar f tn m making a come back, yes there have been set backs, i returned last jan,09 for bone flap surgery which made a huge improvement in my quality of life, but recently i have has a mini stroke/ seizure which left me angry at the world, my recovery was coming along so well , i was even walking 50ft with no cane and now i'm having to get back to where i was, is this depressing yes, but it's a fact and there is no quick fix, and there are gonna be set backs but given his age and hopefully willp
1618588 tn?1298861017 This could be a generalized tonic clonic seizure with the aura and post ictal phase. This also needs transient ischemic attack or mini stroke due to brief cessation of blood supply to the brain due to a blood clot, embolus or vascular spasm. Consult a neurologist who would do a detailed systemic examination and investigations like MRI brain, ultrasound neck, and echocardiogram heart. An electroencephalogram to check for seizure activity is also indicated. Take care.
Avatar m tn Sorry to read of your loss and the loss of a buddy to your remaining dog - this is one of the issues that troubles me when we talk about getting our dog a "brother or sister". The one experience I have with a stroke, diagnosed as a spinal stroke, was there was remaining paralysis. In this case it was a 10 year old large Golden Retriever. We got him back on his feet (rear was the problem and is a weak spot anyway in Goldens) using water therapy.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately your additional information of being hospitalised after having a seizure, and your resulting visual, speech etc issues wouldn't typically match 'normal' ischaemic white matter lesions! There must be a lot more additional information on your MRI, and from your neurological assessment, cognitive assessment and other related test results IF the hospital dr's have diagnosed you of having had a small stroke.
14963801 tn?1437597355 Ok so here it is, I have had a trauma induced seizure disorder for 20 years or more I have had as a rule grandmal seizures when I've had them.it had Beenough almost 5 years without a seizure I had begun to think I had beeten it given seizures are a thing that your brain learns and remembers how to do since the neurologist said the longer without the less it remembers I felt I was on the up side of the disorder.
Avatar f tn To me this sounds like the beginning of a Migraine headache, seizure, or TIA. (A TIA is a "Transient Ischemic Attack" aka a mini stroke.) I highly recommend you seek medical attention! Any of these neurological conditions require treatment to prevent any permenant damage! Has anything like this ever happened before??
Avatar f tn Babygirl should seek medical attention. This sounds more like a Tia "mini stroke" than a seisure, but only medical experts can really tell. It's best to have it checked out.
Avatar f tn Whole body numbness that comes and goes can be due to a mini stroke or transient ischemic attack, compression of spinal up high up in cervical spine, Vit B12 deficiency, anemia, vaso-vagal attack, multiple sclerosis, hypothyroidism, diabetes and panic attack. It can also be a type of seizure. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn My MRIs/Scans this week did not show any signs that I had a stroke or bleed, so the neurologists are assuming I had a partial stroke. Can low potassium cause a stroke? I had a tooth pulled the day before my "seizuere" (only with novacain) and also had dental surgery the day before my stroke. Could dental (bone graft) surgery have caused my stroke?
Avatar f tn Okay, hello, I am a 22 year old male and I believe I suffered a TIA (Mini-Stroke) and am fighting to just get an appointment with a neurologist. On the 20th of April I was driving when I noticed sudden pins and needles. First in my nose, then my gums, then spreading down my body until my entire body was numb with pins and needles and I began shaking. I believed I was having a seizure so I fought to pull my car over and realized I could barely move at all.
Avatar f tn I'm a 60 year old male and I've had about 4 of them that I know of in the last 4 years. I just go into ozone for no known reason or any certain time. The 4 I know of have all happened at work, because I'm around other people who call the ambulance. I'm back to normal before the ambulance arrives at emergency and I go through the brain cave and all the blood tests and nothing is ever found.
Avatar m tn I find it hard to describe the sensation. It is almost like a head rush - or a chill or tingle - in my brain; and it is accompanied by memories that usually take a more linguistic form: I remember words being said or written, plus a little about the context. However, within what seems like milliseconds, it dissipates and I cannot remember what the words/memories were. The sensation doesn't happen often, but when it does, there is usually a cluster of them over a few-hour period.
Avatar f tn hi I'm in a bit of a state. this is saturday and on tuesday i was in bed with my lab top. i was feeling a bit strange when suddenly my hand and arm went nimb. at the same time mt boyfriend walked in and i felt wierd as i looked at him. i said my arm is numb and as i got out of bed my face also went numb. side of my nose and cheek and lip. i said to him clearly "god my face is numb" and then i panicked a bit and had to lire down.
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 n tn I also had headaches for 4 months and in January of this year 2012 I had a mini stroke and now I have some memory loss and I still get dizzy, headaches, and I am always tired. My eye sight also goes blurry once in a while. I have to go to neurologist on the 14th of this month (February). I hate this I wish it would get better. How are you feeling now.
699912 tn?1235667950 I have had MRI to see about mini stroke lately because of symptoms I had undergone a year and a half ago that lasted 6 months after a seizure. The mri was negative. They told me I have to have a eeg monitoring video that lasts 2 days without being on seizure meds in hopes I have seizures to find out where exactly they are coming from before they can operate. I am glad your fiance's surgery went well and was a success!! Thank you!
Avatar f tn Although a stroke can manifest as a transient visual disturbance, that is relatively unusual. But something is going on, and you best have it checked out. Anything having to do with vision is VERY important. You cannot be turned down for medical assistance in the event of possible blindness because of financial reasons. If it happens? Good! Take them to court! (Just make sure that you sue for the cost of a chauffer).
