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 Hey guys i believe that i had a mini stroke this past friday but know on eis giving me the time of the day. the doctor was in and out within5 minutes. two of my fingers went numb followed by blurred vision. i went to call 911 and then couldnt speak and also had a hard time thinking. this was also followed my throwing up. since friday ive stuttered a little here and there. any thought as if you think it was a mini stroke?????
Avatar n tn Hi,The symptoms you have described,sound like stroke related.I myself and my husband both have mini strokes.It sounds like,with the numbness and pain he has suffered a stroke or min strokes.When he went to the emergency room,did they do an mri?He needs to been by a neurologist,one that knows what their doing.Make an appointment as soon as possible,as soon as you read this would be preferrable.It might be several things that causing this.Please make an appointment as possible though.
Avatar f tn Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc. You have many of these symptoms. The treatment is essentially limited to symptomatic therapy so the course of action would not change much whether MS has been diagnosed or not.
Avatar f tn I know something was happening but just not sure what. Some people said it could be a mini stroke. Has anyone dealt with this before?
Avatar n tn I cannot give you a clinical diagnosis over the internet, and the information you provide is limited. 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 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 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 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? Is there a treatment for what she has and if so, is this something that's worsen? HISTORY: Patient with slowly progressive leftsided weakness.
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.....
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.
532476 tn?1214520784 Remember, stroke is a life-threatening emergency. The warning signs or symptoms of stroke may occur alone or in combination. They may last a few seconds or up to 24 hours, and then disappear. These signs are mini-strokes and should not be ignored. They indicate a hidden problem with blood flow, which could trigger a stroke. ref:http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Stroke_signs_and_symptoms?
Avatar n tn My FIL had the same symptoms as you last spring and he was diagnosed with a minor stroke or TIA. All of his symptoms did not disappear - he is left with slight paralysis in one leg. It took a couple of weeks for the other symptoms to disappear. My aunt also suffers from TIA's but usually after a minor TIA there remains a slight defect that appears permanent - sometimes mental and sometimes physical. I guess my question would be - do you have any permanent damage from your "attacks"?
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!!
677292 tn?1226291236 At the time she exhibited some signs and symptoms that pointed towards stroke, but her story just didn't necessarily gel altogether (I'm an ex Paramedic). Unfortunately my Daughter at times struggles with the truth, she lives with my ex wife in another State. The end result that time after a battery of tests, including CT's and MRI's was that nothing showed up, my Daughter's symptoms resolved after 2-3 weeks and life progressed.
Avatar n tn hi i had tia or mini stroke july 5. my speech were slurred and vision blurry. i have recovered well except my speech is somewhat off. my doctor said i will be on coumadin for six months. he started me out with a high dose but not i'm down to 2mg. i just try to be careful and know that if anything else happen that its in our heavenly Fathers hand.
Avatar n tn I just found out that high levels can cause stroke! I also recovered very quickly and have no residual symptoms. I do have to say that having a baby is definitely motiviation to get better quickly.
1384238 tn?1286032362 My doc thinks it may be a pinched nerve. Going to have a carotid doppler next week. I'm worried it may be mini-strokes or something like that (I have HBP), she says she doubts it, but will check everything. I am so sick of being sick....I'm 50 and I go to bed everynight not knowing if I'll wake up...very frustrating! Any ideas? How worried should I be?
Avatar n tn in the heart which can travel to the vessels of the brain and possibly cause a stroke. Have you seen a Neurologist? Some of the symptoms you describe sound like Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Also, when you mention symptoms of weakness, fatigue and "reflux" I begin to worry that you may have some severe stomach irritation, possibly even to the point where you may have an ulcer and/or intestinal bleeding.
2010625 tn?1329375656 Yes I talked to my cousin she thought maybe I was having some mini seizures, as symptoms like these are more related to autism than bipolar.
Avatar f tn Many of the early symptoms of methanol poisoning are non-specific eg. headache, dizziness, malaise, generalized weakness, altered sensorium, acute mania, and paresthesias.

I'm especially interested in learning what mini-strokes are. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. d.
Avatar n tn Hi I'm terribly upset. My dad has just had a stroke. He's 72 and is currently in hospital virtually asleep full time. We know that it is caused by a blood clot stemming from Atrial Fibrillation and it has affected his left side (No vision, left arm and leg) The doctor has painted a very bleak picture which was very devastating and right now at this moment it just seems that there is no hope. Can anyone re-assure me that if he survives there is some hope for quality of life.
Avatar f tn Viruses can wreak havoc on our bodies. Even those symptoms you mention. Unfortunately, those symptoms are not exclusive to MS, so we cannot say with any certainty that yes these indeed are "signs" of MS. What I notice and feel is important (and I would hope a doctor would pursue for you) is your mention of weight loss of no effort of your own, elevated WBC, high CSF pressure, etc. I can see why your doctor put you on an antibiotic.
Avatar n tn I had a mini occasions and warning signs, numb leg, couldn't lift it one morning for several days, headaches, dizzy, all of the things you have listed above. DON'T LET THEM BLOW YOU OFF! TAKE THE WARNING SIGNS SERIOUSLY! I have the best medical team in the area but also know that I'm a mystery case.
Avatar n tn I am afraid that my husband had a stroke on 4/19/08 and all these episodes are mini strokes and leading up to a major stroke. Please help with any ideas. My husband has said he doesn't know how much longer he can go on like this. He is on short term disability right now but he has less then four months to get back to work or he loses his job and all health benefits. We are both under alot of stress due to I don't work and now I am afraid to leave him alone due to confusion, headaches.
14963801 tn?1437600955 they stated that my medicine levels were within therapeutic range but that I was okay sent me home three days later had a super bad headache my right eye was twitching like crazy and started to drooping also my tounge was still numb and felt weird called the neurologist she sent me to the ER to be checked for stroke symptoms, they did a CT scan and it stated this below do these findings meant some point I have had a stroke....
1152950 tn?1263917826 I'll try to be brief-- Little over a year ago I went in with left sided numbness, speech issues, nausea, and drowsiness. I was sent home after a brief visit with the diagnosis of "viral syndrome". The only tests performed were cbc, basic chem. Labs were normal. Left side returned to normal within a couple of hours but vertical virtigo persisted for months.
Avatar f tn I am needing any feedback, as to whether anyone else seems to have or have had recurring stroke like symptoms, 3years after a small stroke. 8years ago, att 39 yrs old I was a senior manager at a large uk ftse company, I had a massive nervous breakdown. This was due to 20years of 15hour day 6days a weeks workaholic lifestyle, in business management and also running my own parttime business as well as working for private and public companies.
