Avatar m tn My nearly 84 year old mother suffered a "major" stroke 2 days ago. She has not opened her eyes, though she shows signs of awareness and can follow directions when asked. She is sleeping allot. Initially she lost movement on her left side, but it very slowly seems to be coming back. She is saying words, though they are hard to understand. She is receiving IV fluids. The doctor said they would give her another day and see if she "wakes up".

Avatar n tn we are doing some research into how we can raise awareness of strokes and what peoplpe can do if someone they know has one. I was wondering if there was anything any one wishes they had known before the stroke happened - either to yourself or a relative / friend?

Avatar n tn My father had a hemorrhagic stroke 10 days ago. His right side is paralyzed and he can't speak and he can't swallow. In the first five or so days, he seemed to have some awareness and was able to answer yes or no questions by pointing at YES or NO on a sheet of paper. When they asked him to hold up two fingers, he could hold up two fingers. Unfortunately, because of the dysphagia, he had to go on and off of a ventilator twice, and now he seems to be much less cognizant.
Avatar f tn I was told that my elderly mom had a major stroke, first by a clot, they have said.. and then another issue days later(?) cause by an atrial fibrillation. Now they say the situation is critical... R sided stroke, and my mom hasn't really regained consciousness. her MRI shows one major stoke, and then a subsequent one caused by bleeding. Mannitol given and swelling of the brain has greatly subsided. Reacts to painful stimuli, by moving toes, when pinched under the arm. NG tube in place.
Avatar f tn Are you thin? If so, this is totally normal to see. Some people can see and feel their heart beat more than others, it isn't an indication of anything, just awareness of the heartbeat. When I lay down and after a minute or so, I can sometimes see my heart beat. If you were nervous or stressed out than that can cause your heart to beat faster and more powerfully (stroke volume increases) and it makes much more obvious. Again, perfectly normal and nothing to be concerned over.
382218 tn?1341181487 Other than Janice Dean coming out of the closet with her MS last Sunday, I haven't seen any other media reference to the fact that this was Nat'l MS Awareness Week in the U.S. I watch CNN, MSNBC, etc. and most of the morning shows, and no mention, from what I saw. The Osmonds were on GMA today; no mention of Alan Osmond's MS. I didn't catch the very beginning though so maybe he said something?
744637 tn?1250803022 Hi, It is difficult to differentiate complicated migraine from stroke. The symptoms of stroke develop very rapidly while the symptoms of complicated migraine develop insidiously. MRI and CT scan in patients of stroke shows the characteristic small vessel ischemic changes. The best treatment for migraine is recognition and avoidance of trigger. Medications like NSAIDS are used to abort acute attacks of migraine. Other medications include butalbital, isometheptene and botox.

Avatar f tn I had a stroke at the age of 39. I am currently 41. I had a stroke in my sleep. When I woke up the next morning my left arm was completely numb and had lost complete strength. I thought perhaps it was maybe caused my a pinch nerve or something. Then my daughters came home and made dinner, they asked me to watch the dinner in the oven. By the time my daughter came back into the kitchen dinner was burning in the oven, and I had no remembrance of her even asking me to watch what was in the oven.
Avatar f tn I had a stroke that involved the cerebellum and had ataxia from it. One of the best things you can do is try to keep your core and leg muscles strong. I wish you the best!
