Avatar n tn I've had an intermittent tingling in my ear and on my face for several days. It lasts 20-30 seconds though it sometimes turns to mild pain and also sometimes includes my jaw and cheekbone. It's mostly on the right side of my face, though I've felt some on the left side as well. I've seen two doctors who couldn't identify it. I have no other symptoms. No headache, nausea, muscle weakness, bels palsy or any of the other signs of stroke. I'm 38 and otherwise healthy.
Avatar f tn There is such a thing as a TIA (transient ischemic attack), which resembles a stroke in how it works but reverses itself within about 24 hours if I remember correctly on the time frame. However, please note that one of the hallmarks of a stroke or stroke-like event is the inability to speak in coherent sentences, can't stick out the tongue, facial weakness on one side, etc.

Avatar n tn An noteworthy area of increased signal intensity in the left medial occipital lobe. There is no bleeding into the lesion on the gradient-echo study. The lesion is in the superior bank of the calcarin cortex and to a lesser extent into the parietal region, consistent with her inferior contralateral visual field loss. The area had increased signal intensity on the diffusion weighted image, but I do not see a similar dark area on the ADC map, raising curiosity that this area is somewhat older.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.

Avatar f tn My mother-in-law had her gallbladder removed about 1 month ago. She is experiencing severe migraines, along with severe nausea, and the left side of her face has become numb, and droopy. The first thing we thought was a mild stroke, she was admitted into the hospital, after MRI'S, Cat-scans, countless bloodwork, and ultrasounds, stroke was ruled out. Now, her dx is vascular migraines.
Avatar m tn It has been 17 months, and only by the Grace of God, are we know seeing signs of the person she used to be. With a lot of prayers, rehabilitation, love and support, my sister is now able to take care of her 3 young ones, walks on her own and we are able to understand her speech. It is a long painful road ahead for you and your family, but don't give up hope. God is a miracle worker.
Avatar f tn Can too much alcohol consumption cause a stroke? Both of my parents have suffered mild strokes (in both cases effecting one eye) They both drink straight vodka daily. Probably a 16 oz glass filed with ice then vodka poured in.
Avatar m tn Around the beginning of the year I started getting mild headaches like my neck was out of alignment. Two weeks ago the pain was so bad it woke me out of a deep sleep. I also had severe nausea and dizziness. When these new symptoms didn't go away after an hour or so I went to the ER. In the ER they originally thought it was a stroke but ruled that out. They did a CT scan that showed something abnormal but they weren't sure what it was so they then did a MRI.
Avatar f tn t have any family history of glaucoma - only of heart disease and stroke. My grandmother lost all vision in her left eye as a result of a "blood clot".
