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.
Avatar f tn But i had symptoms of Bell’s Palsy .

Avatar f tn Radiation causes calcification of the basal ganglia and stroke causes damage to them .
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.
Avatar m tn She had a ct on her brain by her pcp but ,i told her she needs to see a neurologist. Is this the right info I gave her? She is under alot of stress but does not belive in psycologist. How serious are these symptoms?
Avatar m tn My sister had a brain stroke after her brain surgery of her neuro cytoma tumor removal , she had a storke and almost 3/4 of her right of the brain was damaged on Jan 28 2010.... Now it is May 21 2010... she has the feeling returned to her left foot and can move on command as well as move her left hand's finger on command. Her physio therapy is going good with her walking with the help of belt and knee brace.
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 f tn I am no professional but this seems like a stroke. A stroke is when blood is lost in one side of the brain causing dizziness, loss of motor skills, confusion, blurred vision, and other symptoms. I am not trying to scare you but a stroke is rather serious. Do some research and if you think the symptoms match up force her to see a doctor.
Avatar f tn Usually both the pupils dilate in response to poisoning, medications and drug use unless it is from eye drops that are used only in one eye. Some neurological conditions like stroke, tumor or brain injury can also lead to pupil dilation, which can occur in one or both the eyes. Unequally sized pupils can occur with serious conditions such as head trauma, brain tumors, stroke and poisoning.
Avatar m tn Many possibilities exist, and depend somewhat on your age, your risk factors, and the nature of your symptoms (whether or not the numbness started suddenly or gradually, whether it is a complete loss of sensation or a tingling, whether it is an objective finding on examination or it is only a feeling that you have etc) The most concerning cause of numbness on one side of the body is a stroke. Please understand I am not trying to imply you have a stroke, but only that this is one possibility.
Avatar n tn Even in case of my wife her left carotid artery is 100 % blocked. It was detected when she had a stroke on the right side of the brain. Doe to advanced age of 70 years they do not want to take risk to open the blocked artery.
Avatar f tn Hello, I found your story very interesting. I think that you need to have a MRI done on your brain, just to make certain you haven't had a stroke. All the symptoms that you have described def. sounds like you have had a stroke at some point on the left side of your brain, and thats why your right side of your body is affected.
Avatar f tn You may be having some mini-stroke activity (though they should check for brain tumor and think about migraines as well with those symptoms)- this is something you should be very concerned about and not wait around because you have no insurance. Call a triage nurse and find out where they think you should be seen. While you're at the medical facility, you or a loved one talk with them about applying for medical financial aid, making a payment plan, etc.
Avatar f tn My dad is suffering from frontotemperal dementia from last two years and recently undergone keyhole surgery for blood clot (brain).Now he is not able to move his right arm and leg and is bedridden.My question is this due to surgery or due to dementia?will physiotherapy help? can you please suggest something....

Avatar n tn I was wondering what kind of treatment or therapy would help his right arm. He has completely regained all that he lost with the stroke except his right arm. Can you please let me know if there are new type of treatment for his right arm. Otherwise, he is in great health.
Avatar n tn The lesions on your brain can be many things. First MS is a possibility since your symptoms maybe compatible with MS. It all depends if the MRI lesions are also descriptive of MS. Other possibilities include primary or metastatic brain tumors. The appearance of these tumors on MRI are distinct and can be differentiated from MS. Infections can also cause lesions in the brain such as cryptococcus, brain abscess, and tuberculosis.
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 n tn When blood flow to the brain is suddenly stopped, this is a stroke. A stroke is accompanied by clinical symptoms such as weakness on one side, slurred speech, visual problems, or problems with thinking or language. For example, a MRI report might mention left sided brain changes that suggest the appearance of a stroke. If this is the cause of a patient?
402689 tn?1201578212 2 Inoperable RCC brain tumors 7mm & 11mm to pons area/brain stem were treated with CyberKnife on 9/25 and 10/2/07. No real problems, Last MRI done 12/27/07 tumors appeared to be larger, 13mm & 10mm, some subsequent edema/dizziness took additional steroids, stopped > 3 weeks ago. CONCERN Numbness to right side of head/face/neck right forearm/hand & right ankle/foot has occurred within last week. Called the doc this week and they said to just take it easy.
Avatar m tn There are many causes, some very serious such as small stroke, aneurysm, brain tumor. He needs to see an Eye MD ophthalmologist as soon as possible and if shows signs of stroke or other concerning changes needs to go to emergency room or call ambulance. Sudden double vision is a very serious symptom.
473703 tn?1207757754 I was just hopeing that some one can tell me some of the symptoms of Ms. I was in the hospital due to stroke like symptoms spend a few days there and had many heart test done, come to find out that I did not have a stroke , well that's a good thing I thought. And then a Neuro came in to see me, and told me that on my MRI he had seen somethings that he was not happy with, He said I think you might have Ms, and that he wanted to do a few more test.
Avatar m tn Usually, Lacunar infarct occurs due to occlusion of brain arteries and may result into stroke. Therefore, this may be associated with headache, numbness and paralysis like symptoms. If stoke occurs unfortunately, rehabilitation is the only effective way to help the patient regain function to the possible extent and prevent from permanent losses.
Avatar f tn Often oxygen-rich blood cannot be supplied adequately to the brain, causing the symptoms of a mini stroke. In severe cases, increased pressure can cause the arteries in the brain to rupture and cause a hemorrhagic (bleed) stroke. All the best to your mom http://www.savingthebrain.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your reply. The tingling, numbness, electric shock sensations are in the right arm/hand & the white matter lesion & Venous angioma are in right, front part of brain-- wouldn't right side stroke affect left side of body?
