stroke

1474856 tn?1288289049 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. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system. I may need to go outside of the network to get "real" treatment, not just some Dr calling me crazy and saying my depression is an issue.
Avatar m tn it could have been a mini stroke with a normal CT or MRI scan. There are certain causes of mini stroke, which I hope have been excluded. These are seizures, migraines, mini stroke affecting memory areas etc. Is he a hypertensive and how is his blood glucose control? A poor glycemic control can predispose to hyperglycemia and ketones in urine, increasing risk of stroke. He may need medicines to dissolve any clot if was detected on CT head.

Avatar n tn I Had Been Diagnosed With TIA(Mini Strokes) And Was Wondering What I Could Do To Stop The Mini Strokes From Coming Back. Do Headaches Follow This Type Of Mini Stroke?

Is There Any Type Of Medicine That Could Stop It Or Treatment. I Would Go As Far As Surgery If That Would Correct It.
781184 tn?1319024267 Strokes can be due to either bleeds or clots. Sometimes a stroke starts as a clot and medication than causes a bleed, which results in a second stroke.
Avatar m tn It is so frustrating when it does not show up on your MRI and one place tells you possible mini stroke and you go the next time and they transfer you to a different hospital and they do test afterwards and then say it's not a mini stroke because there is no evidence on the test so it must be symptomatic or stress. I am not stressed and i had one of the best days of the month when this happened.
2034625 tn?1392643292 So, another hour and a half home in blinding sun and 80 something degree weather and still no answers about whether this may or may not be the beginning of a flare. I have a new appointment for next Wednesday. We'll see how it goes until then.
905378 tn?1244854365 It could also be a TIA. Here's what Google shows in an early listing ... Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) A TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but ... Unlike stroke, when a TIA is over, there's no injury to the brain I would mention it to the doctor. Carcinista could easily be correct also.
Avatar n tn t had a response on my first question concerning symptoms of a possible mini stroke or withdrawal symptoms from precocet or elavil. Should I take my husband to doctor - his office does not open until 9:00 am my time.
Avatar n tn The thing that I don’t understand, is that I have never had bad cholesterol or high blood pressure which I have read is the main causes of mini stroke. Yet he cannot explain the other symptoms which I don’t understand. I would just like another opinion.
Avatar n tn and as far as i am aware small vessel disease (SVD) is associated with mini strokes, and conditions like Diabetes and high blood pressure are the more common causes of SVD but they probably wouldn't be the only causes and this would be what the neurologist needs to work out with further tests. Cheers........
Avatar n tn A MRI scan will help to rule out other causes of the symptoms like stroke or brain tumors. It may sometimes show the structural lesions as well. Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn t think a thing about it until I told my husband last night and he said it might have been a mini stroke. My mother (deceased) had experienced these in the past and she had severe heart problems that the doctors said may have caused the strokes. I looked up the symptoms, but I only really had numbness in my face and a slight pain over my eye. Could this have been a mini stroke? Should I see a doctor now even though I have no symptoms? Thank you.
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.
350555 tn?1196587877 Well, I feel like I have symptoms of a stroke. Today my left side of my face and my left hand and fingers feel like they are tingling. More like pins and needles. I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....
Avatar f tn You need to immediately consult a doctor who can examine you and run tests to rule out these causes one by one. You could also be having a mini-stroke. If you cannot otherwise get a doctor, I suggest you rush to an ER. Eat something and drink fluids and see if it helps. Take care!

Avatar f tn the day before the mini stroke my skin turned yellow and my left side of my body, mainly my arm, hurt and was very heavy. now i have regular tingling in my hands and feet and almost daily bone pain in my arms and legs. weekly and daily supplements have helped most symptoms but not all. any ideas??
6359965 tn?1393488636 I am 44 yrs old and have had 2 TIA's and a moderate stroke from the past 4 months. I had an ocular stroke initially and had a moderate stroke and I was in MICU and lost feeling on my left side..and lost movement in my leg. I had rehab for that...your question of headaches hits home for me. I have headaches all the time, every day. that's usually a sign my blood pressure is elevated. since these mini strokes, I noticed i have a lot more headaches.
Avatar f tn I have a friend who is in his 20s and was sent home ill from work vomiting and with a terrible headache, dizzyness and other symptoms. Even slurred speech and not remembering words. His doctor told him he had a virus and sent him home. A few days later his mother was ill with the same virus and went to hospital as she was ill. He ddin't go to hospital however as he didn't want to go. But after 2 and a half weeks of him being ill, he had enough and went to the hospital on Friday.
889293 tn?1241085124 Am now due to have MRI today. Consultant has said that if MRI shows damage then he is sure that I have suffered mini-stroke, but if not then its stress! Is it likely that the MRI will show something that the CT hasn't? (CT done 2 weeks after last episode MRI 5 weeks later). Also if the MRI does come back clear, should I just accept stress as the reason behind my sudden visual loss and numbness/heavyness etc in my leg?
