Stroke causes unconsciousness

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke causes unconsciousness


Avatar n tn It is quite possible that you suffered a severe pinched nerve in your neck, but I don't feel that it accounts for all that you went through. You should absolutely have an immediate MRI of your brain (because of the repeated episodes of loss of conciousness) and of your cervical spine. How old are you?
Avatar m tn Hello dear, The duration of unconsciousness depends on the type of stroke,the area affected,the intensity of damage ,the treatment given and the response to the treatment.It might take some time in elderly patients to recover.

Avatar n tn In the brain, it may block a blood vessel, preventing blood flow to a part of the brain. This causes a STROKE. A stroke is an injury to the brain. It may cause weakness or paralysis of an arm or leg, or inability to speak or unconsciousness. It can be a very serious problem, sometimes. It's because of this risk of stroke that doctors advise that even small ASD's be closed, by surgery or other methods. "Recently, some alternatives to surgery have emerged.
Avatar f tn My mother-in-law suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and as part of her treatment she was placed in a drug induced coma. The sedation has been removed for over three weeks and she is still "sleeping." There is also considerable swelling in the brain and the response to medication is insignificant so far. The doctors discussed with my husband that the side of her brain affected by the stroke is completely dead and the real possibility that she may never walk or talk again.
Avatar m tn The etiology would be if the carotid bodies sense a decrease in blood pressure they send a message to increase the heart rate and stroke volume of the heart. If the pressure increases, they tell the heart to slow down. This is why a person can press on specific areas of the neck and have a response in their heart. This procedure, called carotid massage, can induce changes in blood pressure and can even cause a person to stop having an arrhythmia, or irregular heart beat.
Avatar m tn This heat exhaustion is only for that episode the complications do not continue like a disease if your replenish your salts and minerals and continue drinking sufficient water. Only if you had a stroke, unconsciousness then you have to worry. Now check your mineral balance and keep it on track or else visit a Physician for further course of action. Take care!
189372 tn?1219836958 This last while on the left side of my head I have been getting what I can only describe as a pulse type headache that only lasts a split second or so and will come and go at any time of the day, not very painful but worrying which then causes me stress, anxiety etc. Anyway every time I have got this pulse I have always anticipated it suddenly getting worse, and as an anxiety sufferer the usual fear of aneurysm, stroke etc with every episode.
Avatar f tn It is also near the optic nerve - but double vision is not typical, usually pressure by something causes deficits in vision to the sides, not double, but the double could be fatigue. You should see a neuro-opthomologist, a neurologist, and/or and neuro-endocrinologst to get evaluated. Is there some sort of way you can do that? I am not sure the ER is the best way, but a clinic or study?
Avatar n tn i am 54 this year and not far from my mothers age when she started having it, its really scarey and my mom lived with me so i walked each step with her and saw it all, my sweet mom got bed ridden for 11 months before she went , and we belive it was a stroke that took her out, but i would not give anything for the time i had with her.
Avatar n tn htm ---------------------------------------------------------------- Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) typically occurs when the head is suddenly accelerated and/or decelerated during an accident of some type. There may or may not have unconsciousness, or even a blow to the head. A severe whiplash situation can cause the same kinds of twisting and shearing forces on the brain's axons - the nerve fibers connecting one part of brain to another - as does a blow to the head.
211940 tn?1267884866 Apparently my lesions are located in the wrong sections of the brain and my doctor failed to inform me that there were other causes for the demyelination. Have you checked your B12 levels? What other symtpoms are you experienceing? It is so difficult to sit around and wait. I have been taking tests now for 3 months straight, and I don't think I am any closer to an answer.
655242 tn?1229476344 I go to the ER every time thinking I have an anuerysum, tumor, cancer, stroke, heart attack...basically anything bad you can think of. Mine was a lot better when i was on zoloft but I just stopped taking it about 3 months ago and now my good old health anxiety is back. I dont want to take the zoloft again because i lost about 20 lbs getting off of it and I feel like I look great...just dont feel great...LOL You said...
Avatar n tn Every now and then (about one full week out of every month or more sometimes) I start to fall asleep, and then I'll get the feeling like a stroke; My energy will rush to my head and put pressure on my arteries in sides and back of neck; my arteries will actually feel like they are 'burning' and I will then get energy surges and nervousness running through my whole body, like my whole body is a tremor!!!!
Avatar n tn Once (during ovulation) when walking at a mall my leg suddenly started dragging/unable to lift it, speech became slurred/initially unable to talk, mouth pulled down right side--all these symptoms started in '99 except right-sided mouth droop and blurred vision in right eye (onset in 98). Person I was with thought I had a stroke. Can any of this be due to a peripheral neuropathy?
Avatar f tn In severe hypercapnia (generally PaCO2 greater than 100 hPa or 75 mmHg), symptomatology progresses to disorientation, panic, hyperventilation, convulsions, unconsciousness, and eventually death. Hopefully, some of the families of COPD patients on here can help you with achieving household harmony.

Avatar n tn Any movement of the catheter causes severe spasms, pain. Most of you can count yourself lucky that loss in sensation, is the only problem. There are far more serious issues result out of surgery side effects.
Avatar n tn Everything mentioned in last three posts I agree with. remember we are all individuals and although our problems seem similar the causes can be individual as could be the sollutions. When you have these symptoms you must explore all the traditional tests to rule out anything major. I did all this. Then I tried althernative. I visited a friend of a friend who is a recommended chiropracter. Turns out he has similar problems as the rest of us.So this did not work for me.
363682 tn?1299492962 This may be a normal reaction of your body since hot and spicy meals as well as alcohol may cause dilation of blood vessels and increase the blood flow to the area which causes the flushing. However,it is best to have this assessed by your physician.Hormonal imbalance, an underlying allergic reaction,and certain medications may cause this. Have your cervical spine checked by your physician. A cervical spine headache may be a differential.
Avatar n tn I get yellow stools and burning bile that backs up into my system and causes complete HAVOC.... All I can say is good luck to 20 years, I have seen about 15 MD's and ALL of them have different opinions....
