Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke signs of


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 n tn ( If indeed he has had a TIA (mini stroke), treat it is a warning. Find out the cause & do everything you can to address that cause. This is his chance yo stop the big one happpening.
Avatar n tn I had headache and right part of my face is numb. Is this a sign of Stroke? I am scared, I work too jobs about 80 or 85 hours I work. I don't get enough sleep. I want advise, what should I do.
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 n tn Hi, Sinusitis develops when the mucous membranes of your upper respiratory tract — the nose, pharynx, sinuses and throat — become inflamed. The swelling obstructs the sinus openings and prevents mucus from draining normally. This creates a moist environment conducive to infection. The symptoms are usually head ache,facial pain,nasal congestion.It does not cause blurred vision/speech or numbness.
Avatar m tn I am not stressed and i had one of the best days of the month when this happened. Does a mini stoke show up on My symptoms where trouble concentrating, heart racing, weakness, slurred speech , where I had to think before I speak, and shaking of , one of the people who helped me out to the car said they could feel my body shaking inside. and after it is over I had a severe headache.
784336 tn?1236262076 Insist that they do a CT scan of her head to see if she has had a stroke. If she has had a stroke, she needs to be a medication to prevent another one. If her eyes were black, most likely it was her pupils dilating and this could mean brain damage. Tell her doctors that you need answers because she is not the same.
Avatar f tn These symptoms are suggestive of multiple sclerosis, a demyelinating disorder affecting the white matter of the brain. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs.
Avatar f tn I believe i had a mini stroke yesterday. I was hetting ready to get out of bed and all of a sudden i became extremely dizzy.. nauseated..sleepy...blurred vision...i couldn't walk right ..i was mixing up words....we thought maybe my sugar levels were low so i drank some didnt help and i ended up staying in bed for a few hrs... doozing off and on...i continued with my day but didnt feel well enough to drive..u went shopping and as the day passed i felt better ..
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 as she describes it, coming over her during pas year or so. The left hand has little strength, but there's clear signs of her OA there. She has chronic edema in both lower legs, and is now using comp stockings, and has NOT been active or walking at all for more than that year. Does the impression #1 mean she's had a mini-stroke, or has MS, or that there is something progressive that's responsible for her heavy, weak leg/foot?
Avatar m tn The doc who first said he had a stroke and had the tia was now saying no signs of stroke and no reason to worry? The doc and nuro are the same from the 1st incident 10 years ago. They do want to do another mri, cat scan saying it has been 10 yrs but wtf. Tell a person they had a stroke, medicate them for ten years for it and then say nope, no stroke....... My dad has been unable to get any kind of decent health insurance because of this. I told him to find new doc for second opinion.....
1038794 tn?1252925252 I think what he is trying to say is your brain could be sending abnormal signals to the other parts of your body throwing things into a haywire of problems. I would liken it to the wiring of a home or building; if the one wire is faulty, it can cause problems for the whole circuit. I am just guessing what he meant. You should always ask a physician to clarify what he/she means if you do not understand. Well, it is good ENT will see you and you getting another scan tomorrow.
Avatar f tn Can too much alcohol consumption cause a stroke? Both of my parents have suffered mild strokes (in both cases effecting one eye) They both drink straight vodka daily. Probably a 16 oz glass filed with ice then vodka poured in.
Avatar f tn His chest gets tight sometimes and sometimes his toes go numb out of no where. Could this be a mini heart attack? Or stroke? He is very stubborn about going to the doctor so im looking for someone's input on what might be happening! Thanks ahead of time!!
Avatar n tn I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a stroke in the cerebellum and signs of a mini stroke that they classified as 'old'. I fortunately did not have ongoing loss of speech, or weakness in limbs etc...but have suffered from weird dizziness and electric shock feelings in my head. They seem to get better - but then get wrose again....Dr's are saying it is maybe anxiety --but is not. I have had anxiety before and these are different.
Avatar f tn They last about 20 minutes. Blood tests, CT scans, and mri/mra showed no signs of a stroke. Experts said these episodes could have been mini strokes. The neurologists said they could have been seizures. Every time I sneeze I'm so afraid that it will happen again. Does any one have any idea of what is causing this problem?
532476 tn?1214520784 Hi, The FAST test is an easy way to recognise and remember the signs of stroke or a TIA. Using the FAST test involves asking three simple questions. If you have a problem with any of these functions, dial triple zero (000) for an ambulance immediately. FAST stands for: Facial weakness – can the person smile; have their mouth or eyes drooped? Arm weakness – can the person raise both arms? Speech difficulty – can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?
Avatar n tn On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
Avatar n tn But if it will rule out MS I will have it done. He said that there not signs of a Stroke. I asked him about the TIA's, he said those are "Mini Strokes" and they do not cause damage. I would have to disagree with him on that tho. My c-spine MRI is showing bulding disc (which is nothing new had them for several years) and I was suppose to have an EEG today as well but got the dates all messed up on that and it's not til next Tuesday.
Avatar n tn I just wanted to add, that you know your body better than anyone else and if it was a TIA/Mini Stroke, those are temporary and usually do not show up on x-rays but people that do have TIA's have something like a 30% chance of having another TIA or actually stroke within the following year. So you really need to be aware of stroke symptoms and if you get any of these symptoms you need to go straight to the ER.
Avatar n tn life is definitely not the same. so you had a stroke because of your pills? what kind of pills? how are you now? what kind of problems did this cause you? its nice to have someone to relate to. let me know.
Avatar n tn Today, 24 hours later, she seems to have almost completely recovered and has most of her function back. What are the long-term effects of a stroke of this kind? And have any of you experienced or heard of this kind of recovery? We are extremely close to these people and want to do everything we can to help them recover. What can they expect moving forward?
Avatar n tn The bad days is when she is very sleepy. She is never angry nor has she ever shown any signs of anger. Incredibly, she was on psychiatric medications (which I discarded). She watches television all day long. I keep it on loudly to develop a sense of awareness. She likes all programs except those with excessive violence. The coaxing and "negotiations" to go outside or to take a "shower" are always necessary.
Avatar n tn family, friends, my health and the well-being of those I love. I have devoted a large part of my time to helping other stroke survivors and my online stroke group is indexed on the major search engines and publications such as Stroke Smart and the Stroke Connection magazines. Please keep in touch!
Avatar f tn Prior to August 2011, I was able to concentrate very well and stay focused on the task at hand even when I had a multitude of things going on (multiple skype conversations, people in and out of my office, hitting a deadline, reviewing docs – all at once). The past couple of weeks, I appeared to have another mini-episode where I became very unbalanced and uncoordinated. It didn’t feel as if the room was spinning this time but I was knocking into things and toppling off my feet.
Avatar m tn I know of someone who had a stroke some years earlier, I had been sat in a class and the lecturer didn't seem able to, couldn't focus or move onto the next thing to talk about but other than that showed no signs of stroke, but had one. So I wondered if this might be similar, the beginning of a minor stroke.
Avatar f tn My father-in-law suffered a stroke last week with a bleed of 134 cc of blood in the right side of the brain. He hasn't woken up since and is already on a respirator. The doctors are saying that the response they are getting from him is not what they are hoping for. They say there is a chance but its a very slim one. They also said that they would not operate on him since they believe that it won't make a difference.

I'm especially interested in learning what mini-strokes are. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. d.
Avatar n tn The second they think was caused when they lowered his blood pressure it was a Ischemic stroke. The first stroke is the most severe and originated in the Putamen ( a part of the basal ganglia). The second is on the right side and I've been told it controls spatial concepts. He has started to move more today and instead of only having posturing movements he has started to bring his arms up in a more normal response.
