Avatar m tn This last time they THINK she may be experiencing mini seizures ruling out mini strokes. Something is NOT right here. My question is, now where do we turn? She's been to one of the best hospitals in Arizona, Saint Joe, and nothing is wrong? Something is wrong and we need some answers. HELP!
Avatar n tn They thought he originally had a seizure but after conducting a CT scan with contrast it showed he had a massive stroke on the left side of his brain. My father has had several mini strokes (6) in the last 8 months but has always recovered. It affected him on his left side of his body. Dr are telling us he will never wake up but he is breathing on his own and seems to hear us.

1474856 tn?1288289049 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 My mother is 77 years old. About 2 years ago she had a seizure during the early morning hours (around 5am) where she bit down on her tongue and had bled throughout her mouth, onto her pillow. I found her breathing heavily because her mouth was closed, and her teeth were clenched shut. I called 911, EMT's arrived and helped her come out of it. She had lost control of her bladder during the episode.

Avatar n tn Is this possibly a seizure or mini stroke? Should I have an EEG even though the episode is now over?
Avatar n tn 8), waiting results of other bloods, Age 40, exercise moderate. They said it may be a mini stroke so not to drive for month. Feel Ok since except shoulder feels like it has carried a heavy bag. Was back a work 2 days later altho long trains due to having to catch train. Will see consultant again in a couple of days. Could it be anything else. I don't them to say mini-stroke without considering any other cause.
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 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?
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 I recenly had a stroke, I now having spasm in my brain and they go down to my right side of neck ,arm , shoulder. The muscle do not contract , you can even see it,it feels like my head is on fire and wants to explode.
6456098 tn?1381449498 I tend to lose my memory after a severe episode where I become unaware of my surroundings and have a mini seizure. While coming out of the cafeteria at the college, 3 sharp pains in a row, in the same spot, hit my chest, and after walking up stairs, felt that my chest was pounding. While walking through the hall, I became heavy-headed and dizzy, almost falling over.
Avatar n tn I read in the Merrik Manual that Atrial Fibrillation can cause strokes and mini strokes, and that strokes (caused by blood clot as well as hemmorage) can cause seizures. The doctors are hesitant to take him off his seizure meds even though he has not had a seizure in 6 years.
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

Avatar n tn They put her on keppra and told her not to drive for three months. Is it possible she had a mini stroke or other heart disease? She has come to the conclusion that she has had a few of these in the past in her sleep. The last time she bit her tongue.
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.
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 They came to the conclusion that it must have been a mini stroke. My Mother has always suffered with a very stressful lifestyle but at 63 she has never really had any major medical problems. Doctors continued to do numerous tests over the following six months but still could not quite work out if it was exactly a mini stroke, she had not lost any use of her limbs or speech.
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.
