Stroke after symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke after symptoms


Avatar n tn Excluding a new stroke, do symptoms several months after a stroke get worse than symptoms at the time of the stroke. The symptoms after the stroke should get better or stay the same but not get worse, right? New scans show resolution, but symptoms persist.
Avatar f tn A week before I was feeling really swollen in my stomach. Then two weeks later had a stroke after confirmed by an MRI. Was fortunate not to be disabled since it lasted only 3 hours. I want to know if synthroid can cause a stroke. My TSH came back normal after a blood exam. Please let me know what you think???

Avatar n tn 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. In the mean time, tell her not to panic, many times these odd things happen and go away. Her brain is re-wiring itself around the dead spot in her brain and while that is going on, other weird things sometimes happen.
Avatar n tn Please go for a CT scan and MRI of the brain immediately . These will help to diagnose whether it is a stroke and whether the stroke is ischemic or haemorrhagic . If left untreated , it may lead to paralysis on one side of the body . Please discuss the management plan with a neurologist after the diagnostic tests are done . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
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 Hi, did you developed the symptoms after stopping therapy with tizanidine or during tratment with tizanadine. Your symptoms are suggestive of hypertonia which is one of the withdrawl symptoms with this medicine as this drug may produce dependence. Tizanadine is muscle relaxant, acting at the level of brain and usually given in cases of back pain, spasms etc. It is unlikely to have stroke with this drug. But its withdrawl can cause muscle spasm or hypertonia.
Avatar n tn What does his doctor say? Did he have any physical therapy after his stroke? If not, he may still benefit from some. If these are new symptoms, he should see a doctor about it. Good luck.

If prescription medications do not help, try complementary and alternative medicine. Biofeedback therapy, self-hypnosis and acupuncture have shown positive results to headache sufferers. Take care and best regards.

667923 tn?1421466324 weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE. I am having mental exhaustion,confusion and altered mental state with many others symptoms to many to state.
Avatar f tn I thought I was going crazy while getting those pains the other day thinking to myself, these are stroke symptoms!! Mine went away right after but it made me nervous.
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.
2190999 tn?1504992491 Last year I was diagnosed with migraines after having stroke symptoms for several weeks in March and again in June. I take a baby apirin a day per my neurologist, Im 42, smoke ocassionally, and have just started taking an oral contraceptive again. Should I stop the oral contraceptive? And if I don't, do I risk experiencing more stroke symptoms? Are these migraine-strokes benign, and do I run the risk of having permanent symptoms?
2190999 tn?1504992491 I was worked up for MS in 2012 and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms. In 2012 I had left leg weakness and foot drop, dizziness which lasted for months, lateral nystagmus, loss of balance etc.The reason I ask now is bc I still have left leg weakness and tingling on the entire left side of my body. The tingling is constant with intense waves of tingling.
Avatar m tn I guess right now my biggest concern is identifying any latent symptoms/effects of a potential heat stroke 3 days ago. Her behaviour was normal for the 1st 24 hours or so after the i imagined nothing happened from the heat. Can someone help me? Is there anything visual or behaviour that can point to or rule out heat stroke damage?
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 f tn If there is concern for depression, treatment of it can improve many symptoms. Seizures or abnormal EEGs after stroke is common. Treatment of the seizures (or severely abnormal EEG patterns) with antiepileptics such as lamictal should help improve some of your symptoms with the thinking. If the neuropsychological evaluation showed specific problems, cognitive rehabilitation to help you with those specific areas may benefit you.
484698 tn?1208823583 As you can imagine I've had a million tests, first it was a stroke (TIA), Then M.S., then ocular migraines, then seizure disorder. After my last normal EEG. My neurologist suggested maybe this was a new anxiety symptom. Anyone out there experience anything like this? I have no doubt that these episodes are anxiety related but I was just wondering if anyone else ever gets this or has anyone had changes in there panic attacks or anxiety symptoms after while?
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.
