2175879 tn?1338355028 My MRI results came in. This time my neurologist actually found proof that I had a stroke. First they thought it was a TIA, then an ear ache, and then I kinda forced the issue, they did another MRI and actually found a small "disruption" on my right side of my brain. I can't tell you how relieved that makes me.
Avatar m tn m posting here today because i am very worried about someone that i know that had stroke like symptoms but the doctors believe it was no a stroke but a brain cramp.
Avatar n tn 46 yr old healthy female. 4-21-97 Had frontal right brain mild stroke due to dissecting carotid aneurysm. From day one all questions and symptoms have been responded to by doctor with "that shouldn't be happening" or "we don't know anything...there's nothing we can do." Head feels weird. can't tolerate excitement, esp. extreme visual or audio stimulation. Slight left side weakness. Always fatigued.
Avatar f tn A TIA is a temporary interruption of blood flow to a part of your brain. A TIA is also a sign of an impending Stroke . The signs and symptoms of TIA are the same as for a stroke, but they last for a shorter period — several minutes to 24 hours — and then disappear, without leaving apparent permanent effects. A TIA may indicate that you're at risk of a full-blown stroke. People who have had a TIA are much more likely to have a stroke than those who haven't had a TIA.
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.
Avatar n tn And without oxygen, nerve cells in the affected area of the brain can not work properly, and die within minutes. This leads to the symptoms of stroke such as numbness or paralysis. Depending on the vessel affected, paralysis may only manifest on one side or both. However, the usual presentation is in one side of the body. Take care and regards.
5621588 tn?1371086206 Hi, my name is Adam and I recently had a brain stem stroke. (About 2 weeks ago) I lost my ability to eat and my right side is fairly numb. I'm 35 years old from upstate NY. I know now after reading up on brain stem strokes that I am lucky to even be alive. I also suffer from pretty sever anxiety and panic attacks, which doesn't go very well with being a stroke survivor, as the symptoms of my panic attacks often mimic stroke symptoms.

I am still having excess hiccups when I talk or try any movement, sensitivity to light at times, having problems with determining hot and cold with my left arm, and severe vertigo problems dizziness and naseousness.

Avatar n tn He had past partial paralysis of his left side but recovered about 90%. He suffered a second right brain stroke yesterday. It was massive and MRI shows damage to 50% of his right brain and has left side neglect. The gave him the shot (but no affect) and tried to remove the clot but the neurologist said he could not do it because it was too curvey. It is unknown if he can swallow yet as he was not lucid enough to test him.

About a year later my vision had nearly all cleared up. I only had 50% vision loss in my left eye only instead of both eyes. About two months ago though I started to experience strange symptoms. About two minutes before falling asleep and roughly two minutes after waking up my ENTIRE, body...goes numb. I can't feel my limbs, at all.

Avatar f tn ve had a copy of the letter sent from the stroke consultant (was admited with possible stroke symptoms but they then thought it was a possible migraine) to the Neurologist. This is the report: "MRI of the brain showed an unusual lesion involving the right parietal cortical grey and sub cortical white matter and the vessel imaging was within normal limits.
Avatar f tn As a result, the affected area of the brain is unable to function, leading to movement disability on the affected side, inability to understand or speak, or visual disturbance on that side. Stroke symptoms are experienced on the opposite side of the brain that is affected. For example, if there is a clot on the left side of the brain, weakness, numbness or inability to move the arm or leg is experienced on the right side of the body.
Avatar n tn if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn Factors that may cause this or contribute to its rupture are smoking, hypertension, head injury, family history of brain aneurysms (so sisters may have). Common symptoms could be loss of vision, headache, eye and neck pain, seizures, paralysis, gait disturbances etc. Investigations like CT angiography, MRI, CSF examination (presence of blood) are essential to reach at diagnosis here. Neurosurgery is the mainstay of treatment that may be suggested by a neurologist after examination.
