690874 tn?1263054040 From what you describe, your daughter might have slight hemiplegia (type of CP which affects only one side of the body). This type of CP is often caused by a stroke and many of the infants who have it were born full-term. CP is not a very descriptive term. What's more important is what in particular is wrong with the brain and what physical (and sometimes cognitive) effects it has.
Avatar f tn I am 29 years old, i have a hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy of the right side. I had the weakness since birth. in 2002 i had a focal seizure after appeared an EEG,do you think hemiplegia is related to parkinson disease. because my new specialist give me a drug trial(Madopar) to reduce my pain especially my hand n foot i the right side body. I had a MRI of the brain and the result is Longstanding left hemicranial atrophy with atrophic changes in the left cerebral hemisphere. Anyone can help me?
Avatar f tn I have not heard of anything like this after a stroke with the attacks. I've always heard of stroke symptoms being more steady. So do you have full strength in your limbs, no head pain, no dizziness or slurred speech outside of your attacks? If so, you have a gift compared to everyone else that I know of, who has continous symptoms. It sounds totally bizarre that psychotherapy could alleviate all or even some of your symptoms.
Avatar m tn Hello, Some of the important causes of your symptoms are overextension of the muscles,overweight,prolonged standing during the day,dehydration, alterations in the balance of salts in the bloodstream (such as a high or low sodium,calcium or potassium level),neuropathy(esp in diabetes),hypothyroidism,peripheral vascular disease(narrowing of the leg arteries which causes poor circulation),sarcoidosis,excess alcohol,nerve compression or nerve entrapment, multiple sclerosis,spinal cord injury,cereb
512096 tn?1211207183 [1] Infants and young children with hydrocephalus typically have abnormally large heads, because the pressure of the fluid causes the individual skull bones — which have yet to fuse — to bulge outward at their juncture points. Compression of the brain by the accumulating fluid eventually may cause convulsions and mental retardation.
547196 tn?1214633706 A large number of factors which can injure the developing brain may produce cerebral palsy. In general, however, there are two problems that can cause cerebral palsy: -failure of the brain to develop properly (developmental brain malformation) -neurological damage to the child's developing brain. Whatever the cause of your child's cerebral palsy, the severity of the brain damage generally depends on the type and timing of the injury.
Avatar f tn Muscle weakness , Vision impairment , Speech impairment , Dementia , Expressive Asphasia (Aphasias are a group of disorders characterized by disturbances in speaking and understanding language. Receptive aphasia causes impaired comprehension. Expressive aphasia is reflected in odd choices of words, the use of partial phrases, disjointed clauses, and incomplete sentences.) , Seizures . The pattern and rate of progression of cerebral atrophy depends on the disease involved.
Avatar f tn People who have had a TIA are much more likely to have a stroke than those who haven't had a TIA. Other causes of muscle spasm could be – Multiple Sclerosis , Cerebral palsy , Neurodegenerative diseases , Trauma , Spinal cord injury , Prolonged exercise , Dehydration and salt depletion , deficiency of muscle enzymes and Myotonia . Please consult a physician immediately and get a complete check up done to find out the cause . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
Avatar n tn Hello Dear The causes of brain atrophy may be:,stroke and traumatic brain injury,Alzheimer’s disease, Pick’s disease, senile dementia, fronto-temporal dementia, and vascular dementia,cerebral palsy,Huntington’s disease, leukodystrophies, mitochondrial encephalomyopathies, multiple sclerosis infectious diseases, such as encephalitis, neurosyphilis, and AIDS, in which an infectious agent or the inflammatory reaction to it destroys neurons and their axons ,epilepsy etc.

Avatar m tn Hello, Some of the important causes of muscle cramps are overextension of the muscles,overweight,prolonged standing during the day,dehydration, alterations in the balance of salts in the bloodstream (such as a high or low sodium,calcium or potassium level),neuropathy(esp in diabetes),hypothyroidism,peripheral vascular disease(narrowing of the leg arteries which causes poor circulation),sarcoidosis,excess alcohol,nerve compression,multiple sclerosis,cerebral palsy,impending stroke and sometimes
4943237 tn?1428994695 Many conditions may cause ataxia, including alcohol abuse, stroke, tumor, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. It's also possible to inherit a defective gene that may cause one of many ataxia variants. Treatment for ataxia depends on the underlying cause" http://www.mayoclinic.

Avatar f tn The common ones are stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI),Motor neuron disease (eg, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS]),Parkinson disease and other degenerative disorders,Multiple sclerosis,Myasthenia gravis,Myopathy (dermatomyositis, myotonic dystrophy), cervical spondylosis,Age (found in elderly patients),Cerebral palsy and Disorders in the cervical esophageal aspect of deglutition (esophageal-pharyngeal backflow, tracheoesophageal fistula, Zenker diverticulum, reflux). http://www.
Avatar f tn ) and/or brain disorders such as MS, stroke, tumor, cerebral palsy, etc. I would make sure that you have had an MRI of you entire spine/brain with contrast. If negative, then maybe a CT myelogram (dye study) would be helpful (to rule out tethered cord, etc.) A tethered cord is when your spinal cord becomes attached to the adjacent structures and is being pulled on over time (examples include tethering due to scar tissue, lipoma, etc.)” Refer: http://www.medhelp.

Avatar n tn ) and/or brain disorders such as MS, stroke, tumor, cerebral palsy, etc. Hence you need tests to rule these out. NCV is a part of EMG where conduction of an impulse through a nerve is tested. So, depending on the suspected diagnosis, other tests will be carried out. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn Some of the best reading comes from the NINDS (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) and the Cerebral Palsy Foundation. The Rusk Institute in New York is probably one of the best medical centers for spasticity. There's also one in Chicago, but I forget its name. Good luck with your daughter's treatment.....j c P.S.
Avatar f tn I had MRI couple years ago, and it show longstanding left hemicranial atrophy with atrophic changes in the left cerebral hemisphere. there is asymmetry of the hippocampal formation with the left eing smaller and showing milldly prolonged T2. I am on drug trial at the moment, i'm taking madopar 200mg/50mg. Can anyone let me know what's going on with me? because i'm confuse if i have cerebral palsy/parkinson/ hemiplegia.
Avatar dr m tn If you take a look at the research literature, there are tomes of studies that link sleep apnea (and even snoring alone) with a much higher incidence of stroke (as well as heart disease). One recent study looked a MRI’s of people with sleep apnea and found a significant increase in the number of small silent strokes (or lacunar infarcts). Another study showed that people with sleep apnea had significantly reduced blood flow rates to certain critical areas of the brain.
506846 tn?1217269561 I have been a member of the MS Forum for a few months now but since my DX I came here in hopes to get some answers. I have had some stroke like symptoms that have lasted since February of this year. It started with the left side of my face and a mild headache at the top/center front of my head at the hairline. All symptoms were typical of Bell's Palsy except I could wrinkle my forehead. I was Dx w/ Bell's Palsy but the Neuro that DX me questioned it about a couple of weeks in.

Avatar m tn A machine called a Magnetic Molecular Energizer, or MME there have been very few treatment applications for electromagnetism Case studies show that stroke, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetic neuropathy, and chronic non-healing injuries and other trauma can all be significantly improved with this breakthrough therapy. The MME operates somewhat like an MRI as they both use strong DC electromagnetic fields.
Avatar f tn This imbalance is often found in people with cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injury. What Are the Symptoms of Spasticity?
Avatar n tn I woke up unable to move or feel my left side, when it came back an hour or two later, I went to the doctor still suffering form partial numbness and paralysis of my face.. they did a MRI and discovered nothing identying a stroke, my cholesterol was off the charts, they put me on a halter monitor and although I showed signs of irregular heart beats and speed it would always reregulate. my main pain radiates around my rib cage, It can feel like been punched repeatedly in the stomach at times.

Avatar n tn With more significant asymmetry, the concern would be for a lesion (of varying causes such as stroke, tumor, MS) on the opposite side of the brain or spine (on the right in someone with left sided atrophy and weakness). A normal MRI of the brain and spine and EMG are certainly reassuring, and makes this one-sided atrophy and weakness difficult to explain.
Avatar f tn Provided there are no neurological or neurodegenerative causes such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, stroke, or spinal cord injury - extra calcium is usually the solution for muscle spasms or muscle cramps in many nocturnal cases.
