Mini stroke personality change

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke personality change


Avatar f tn The main issue is a drastic personality change. He is married with grown children. He used to be very docile and loving to his family. Lately he is agressive (not physcially but verbally) he also has been going to strip clubs and visiting porn sites. This is very unlike him. I didn't know if this personality change could be as a result of all his medication and a mix with the alcohol or if a mini stroke could cause this.
Avatar n tn Sometimes folks can have a complete change of personality of they have had a mini stroke. If he continues to be like this, I would have him see a doctor and have some tests run to rule out stroke, or maybe even a type of dementia as that, too, can cause a personality change.
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).
Avatar f tn My Mother was recently diagnosed as probably having had a mini stroke or something similar. What would something similar be? Also, could a situation that caused a person to panic cause a stroke?
Avatar f tn It is not a usual change noted in post stroke changes in life. There might be some other cause or reason for the change in your dad's personality who wants to keep away from your mom. Both of them need special care and attention at this age as they are under severe stress now. Is your brother at home with them, if yes he needs to take care of them and be with them always? If possible you might take your father for a counseling and also advise from a behavioral specialist.
Avatar m tn  I explained his confusion and wrong answers and they thought it may be a mini stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack) or a UTI (apparently it can cause mental confusion in some).  Anyway he was taken to hospital and they have done some tests and nothing comes up so far, they are thinking an infection but he wont pee and so they are waiting till the morning to check his bladder.   I just find it all odd as maybe its unrelated but something has not been right since his heart surgery.
Avatar n tn I am a very positive, upbeat kinda person, so it is hard for me to handle the change, my sunny personality is not appreciated, so I just try to watch myself and tone it down. We have been married 40 years and now both retired, he can not work due to stroke(also a blow to ego), together 24/7, not good. If he becomes really mean I don't know what we''ll do, so for now I guess we take it a day at a time. Definetly, stroke related and I miss the man I once knew..

Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
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'm glad your husband's BP is coming down. I am not a doctor, so I have no idea what could have happened. Maybe a mini-stroke? I just don't know, sorry. Was he on BP meds BEFORE this happened? What is he taking now? I'll keep him in my prayers...
Avatar m tn Hello~Dogs, like people, can have changes after a stroke and personality changes is one of the changes. Sometimes, this will pass in a few months, in the meantime, just keep loving her.
Avatar n tn Also toothache can be very painful and make one irritable and emotionally disturbed for some time. Sit with your boyfriend and sort this out. If there is really a personality change you will see it in other relationships too. Take care!
Avatar n tn Would certainly make sure that the thyroid levels (TSH and T4) as well as calcium and magnesium are all normal. One must wonder about a stroke which caused personality changes with such an abrupt change in character and mood. This would not be Alzheimers. Would consider a neurological evaluation.
1346447 tn?1327862572 Hello nagrajjain, All of the things you mention here are all normal after a stroke. Please do not worry about your personality change. You may did not notice it at first because all of your energy was trying to walk again and get your mobility back. Now that your physical recovery is going well, you are now noticing your moods, thought processes and speaking problems. Your emotions are different because your brain is different now.
477009 tn?1210876873 Hi, i do not know anything about this i to have had a mini stroke but nothing severe as this. I just want you to know i will pray for your situation.
Avatar n tn   I was just wondering, what do you do during a mini stroke? Do you get up and start walking around to get the blood flow going, (that's what I do), or do you sit down and relax? It's crazy that this mini stroke came back into my life! I had it come and go for about six months when I was younger back in 2006. When it happened back then, my whole right side of my body was paralyzed.
Avatar f tn Being able to identify real stroke symptoms and psychological ones has been very important to me. My stroke changed my personality and mind set of every day life, which has been one of the hardest things to overcome, but it can be done. A positive attitude is absolutely vital for recovery. Constantly worrying about another stroke can crush your motivation and every day life.
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?
