Right brain stroke symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Right brain stroke symptoms


Avatar m tn Like if an area of the brain is affected, it causes certain results peripherally. In the absence of this, it is difficult to say that the symptoms are due to TIA or stroke. Many times with TIAs the imaging studies do not pick up any positive findings. If your symptoms persist or recur consult your doctor. Regards.
Avatar n tn 2010 and since then I have talked to dozens and dozens to stroke survivors and have found out that there are so many different symptoms that can come from a stroke that there is not a perfect answer. Each stroke is different to each different person. One thing may happen to your aunt that didn't happen to me, but may happen to thousands of others. Sight problems are common after a stroke and many times do go away after some time. If it gets worse or she is worried, see her doctor.
Avatar f tn Here's what happened. As I was finishing up raking my lawn, my right hand suddenly became very numb. I worked it by rubbing it and shaking it alot but while I was doing that I also got a sudden burst of numbness in the right side of my nose and mouth. The tongue became only slightly numb. This only lasted a few short minutes but made me go nuts at the same time. I have a 3 year old son who is very much a "Mommy's boy" and tend to hold him alot.
Avatar n tn Should ever experience these symptoms collectively, get yourself to an ER immediately because some the damage done by a stroke can be reversed if anti-coagulants are administered within 3 - 4hrs of the clot developing. The anti-coagulant, in and of itself, is a potent drug, so the ER would thoroughly vet you before administering it--which will include a check-up by the neurologist on call. I'm not a doctor, but judging by your post, I doubt you're having a stroke...
Avatar f tn i've learned ppls symptoms can very and with all the new illnesses with similar symptoms they lucky to know. i had my stroke at the hospital while nurses were to busy chatting to have me admitted to be seen. the last thing i remember before was if they dont hurry it be to late. i woke up when a dr was yelling an i was being moved an all i heard before i watch the heart monitor flat line was him telling them he should have been called an they were to give me something..
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Do you still experience these symptoms? Dizziness and numbness warrants further evaluation to rule out stroke, TIA and other neurological issues such as hemiplegic migraine. If it recurs, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor or be referred to a neurologist for proper evaluation. A complete neurological examiantion and imaging studies like MRI may help. Take care and do keep us posted.
5621588 tn?1371089806 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'd like to find some other brain stem stroke survivors to talk to, as I always seem to have new questions each day. I have a peg tube for feeding and medicines.
Avatar n tn My friend had a brain stem stroke 3 years ago at the age of 39 and had all the symptoms of your husband. I will tell you it's a tough road ahead! You can go to www.judyackel.com to read about her progress.. keep in mind it's very slow. Good Luck!
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, I'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 i had it last feb i had a stroke no physical damage.. but its so weird its like my brain had a seizure i got so tired i felt so weird inside.... i some memory loss and i get nauseous i havent gotten rid of my migraine for a year!!!!! im being hospitalized cuz of it.... in early march...
Avatar f tn I was admitted into the hospital that day and had an MRI the next day which showed a very small spot in the right side of my brain in the back of my head. My heart and cartoid arteries checked out ok and so after 2 days they sent me home. Ever since this happened, I have not felt right. I did have sinus surgery in January and it is now March and was just put back on prednisone and antibiotics because my sinuses are still inflammed.
2190999 tn?1504992491 and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms. The reason I'm posting now is bc I still have left leg weakness, hypersensitivity and constant tingling on the entire left side of my body. I've read migraines with stroke symptoms are benign but I'm wondering if I should expect things to get better. And yes I've thought about letting my neuro doc know about this, but I'm afraid she'll want to do more testing...
Avatar f tn There are many factors in determining the recovery of a stroke patient after a surgery. This includes the type of stroke, severity of symptoms, how much the body is involved, medical condition of the patient ( presence of diabetes, hypertension, heart conditions), age, over-all health and even the type of surgery done. It is best that you discuss this with his attending physicians for proper evaluation and to clear any worries. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Since 2002 I have lost vision in my left eye for 1/2 hour or more at a time. I experience stroke like symptoms...inability to concentrate, confusion, anxiety, etc. I lost my job as a lending officer and finance teacher due to memory loss (mainly with names, dates...words) and am at a loss as to what my problem may be. My heart rate drops into the 20's, and had a space of 2.6 seconds between beats during the halter test. Can a slow heart beat casue these symptoms?
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 Tim My mother, 91 years old had a massive stroke is right side paralyzed and cannot speak. I believe she is in much worse shape than your grandmother who can move her arm/leg and respond to you. They told me that my mother would never speak again and that I was facing "end of life issues." Well that was 4 years ago. I don't think the Drs. can predict much of anything. Don't give up hope and stay involved with your grandmother and her care. Read a lot of the posts on this site...
Avatar f tn She's headed to a neurologist in Seattle in January to see if he can figure something out. She's showing stroke symptoms but the docs say no stroke due to them coming on "gradually", not all at once. Could heat stroke have caused damage that could result in these symptoms? Would the damage due to heat stroke show up in any of these tests? Thank you for any information you can provide!
Avatar f tn I am a 27 year old white female. At 26 I had a massive ischemic stroke in my right occipital lobe. I was about 95% blind after the stroke. 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 n tn My Father aged 65 years had 3 episodes of Ischemic Stroke. His right arm shoulder and leg do not function normally since first stroke(5 years ago first stroke). I have tried every neuro physician and surgeon, but to no sucess. I think there is no cure for this problem. Atleast recurrence can be avoided, He is taking Aspirin + Dipyridamole tablets along with tablets to keep blood pressure under control. recently had spasticity in his right arm which after taking Baclofen has reduced.
580765 tn?1274922960 I have noticed no correlation between the occurrence of the episodes and any other conditions, other than the progression of the stroke- like symptoms in and around the time of the racing episodes. A neurologist that I saw Tuesday ruled out MS and other neurological conditions, based on several clear MRIs, nerve conduction tests, and lumbar puncture results. He said that all of my symptoms were likely due to an electrial misfire in my heart.
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 n tn Hi, How are you? There are a number of causes, which can cause numbness in the arm, face and leg, but most commonly it could be due to stroke or compromised blood supply in these areas which is extremely rare to occur. Have you ever got your blood pressure checked? Any kidney problems or diabetes? Are you obese? All these answers can help me to get to a diagnosis. What you mentioned is kind of hemiparesis. Is there any weakness or inability to move voluntarily in the limbs?
724734 tn?1230944872 Hello everyone, 25/M About a year ago I began experiencing some strange sensations which I sometimes have trouble finding the words to describe, but their presence is definitely there regardless. In a nutshell my symptoms seem to be fatigue, lightheadedness, "brain fog", trouble focusing, numbness and generally just feeling disconnected. I'm "not there" so to speak, both physically and mentally.
Avatar n tn If there are neurological symptoms persisting for more than 24 hours, it is classified as a cerebrovascular accident, or stroke. You have to be alert and followup your doctor regularly,take youe medicines control your cholesterol and blood pressure levels, as weakness of your muscles may precipitate a stoke.
