Avatar m tn why is a 42 year old male still asleep after 9 days of a stroke and why does he shke his head?
Avatar f tn I'm a little unsure of what delirium means, in these stroke cases. Does it refer to someone's repeating words or sentences many times while in a restless/agitated state of (apparent) sleep? And is this state really sleep, sleep with dreaming, or some kind of unconsciousness? These vocalizations are normally sentences, but don't relate to anything going on in the room, e.g., I built it because I enjoyed it and then, I enjoyed it because I built it.
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 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 f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! I am sorry to hear about your mother. Post craniotomy your mother could have had a stroke, brain swelling, infection, brain damage etc resulting in loss of consciousness. It is difficult to comment beyond this. A spinal tap may be diagnostic at this stage. Please consult her neurologist. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
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 n tn Rehabilitation during the hospital stay after stroke generally refers to all the measures taken to prevent a recurrent stroke and complications (in the hospital) while ensuring proper management of general health functions, mobilizing the patient, encouraging resumption of self-care activities, and providing emotional support to the patient and family. There might always be some residual impairment (neurological deficit) after the stroke.
Avatar n tn She has had several tests and they are still unable to find anything that causes this problem. It would be great if someone would be able to give me some advice that I could pass on to help her resolver her situation.
Avatar n tn My wife (59yo) had a severe stroke March 12, 2007. She can walk and talk, but has serious cognitive, sequencing, and logic limitations. She can't add or subtract or read more than one line at a time. She has had 3 seizures and tongue bitings late a night. I don't know if she bit her tongue and it caused a panic attack with a minute of convulsions and then about 15 - 20 minutes of unconsciousness and unresponsiveness.
Avatar m tn Hi, My mother is 60 years old, and suffered a left hemisphere bleed about 4 months back. It was a small vessel burst so she skirted getting an aneurysm. After 3 weeks of unconsciousness and 2 months' hospitalization, we got her back home. She's thankfully improving, with right side weakness and spasticity gradually improving. However, her cognitive awareness is minimal and so is her short-term memory: she can understand the present, but loses it all in half an hours' time.
Avatar n tn when some one suffers from concussion at what stage shold they be taken by ambulance to hospital. Does that happen if the person has a long period of unconsciousness or just with any unconscoussness? if when they wake up they have a dazed and confused look on their face and then when they try to stand up they loos there balance should they be called and ambulance and be taken to hospital. At what point should a ct scan be done?
Avatar m tn I am having episodes of unconsciousness. I will be doing normal things and suddenly loose consciousness and once I am conscious I have memory lose for usually a few hours up to most of the day. I have been having these episodes for a little over a year now. I have had a bunch of test done including an eeg, cat-scan and a neural phyc evaluation. My phyciatrist thinks it might be a dissociative disorder however it does not fit in any of the categories completely.
Avatar n tn Soccer injury and/or birth-control pills caused stroke? posted by Kawika on December 30, 1998 at 12:29:45: my 17 y.o. daughter collapsed after heading a ball in a soccer game. Was unconscious for 8 or 9 minutes, woke while being loaded on ambulance. She had been having headaches for several weeks prior. Also had possibly collapsed and was apparently disoriented the previous day. At the ER, 2 CAT scans (one w/high contrast) and carotid sonogram showed nothing.
Avatar n tn I do not have high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol, no strokes or TIAs, and CADASIL (unlikely, no relatives with it). What else causes these brain lesions. Neurologist says I have too many lesions to be age related. They are multiple small foci of bright FLAIR signal in the subcortical white matter of both hemispheres in a relatively symmetric distribution. Thank you.
Avatar m tn He collapsed, started foaming from the mouth and went into a deep state of unconsciousness. By the time they got him to the hospital he was in a coma. After 8 hours he had woken up, though he has a massive headache he rates as a 10 (out of 10). His left side is also weaker than his right and he cant walk by himself, though he can wiggle his toes & fingers and has feeling still. He is still in hospital, still has a really bad headache and is making slow progress with his left side.

Avatar m tn My nephew is 10 years old and he faints (unconsciousness) couple minutes for each time and multiple times every single night around 9pm for more than 3 weeks already. His fainting is getting worst and more frequently lately. He had blood test and MRI done in hospital but the results were normal. The hospital and his specialist could not find what causes the faints. Wish you can help my nephew and many many thanks!!!

Avatar n tn Depending on the area of the brain affected and the severity of the stroke, it is possible for a stroke to cause the symptoms described above without any evidence of paralysis of extremities. Has an MRI or CT scan been performed? It might be advisable to consult a neurologist to assess her condition and possibly have her undergo brain imaging.
Avatar n tn But sometimes headaches could be due to intracranial causes like infections or tumors. The feeling could also be a side effect of the medications you are taking. If it persists, check with your doctor to rule out the probable causes. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn On both occurrences my sugar dropped so low and I was forced to constantly eat for the next 24 hours or go to the hospital to avoid unconsciousness. I did not accidentally inject Novolog. These were both brand new bottles used for the first time, stored correctly in the refrigerator and well within the expiration date. Once was with the solostar pen and the other time it was with a vial. Neither time did I hit a vein. Both times it took me 2 days to figure out that it was the insulin.
