Avatar n tn That day they did a CT Angio which was normal and the ER doctor released him stating that they would see him in the stroke clinic. In the weeks that followed he has had a multitude of tests (echocardiogram, MRI, blood work, holter, etc) all with normal result. Symptoms April 7th until April 24th: Constant feeling that he can only equate to feeling like he is on a rocking boat. Not dizzy and no trouble with balance or any of the neurological exam tests. Eye focus delayed when moving head.

Avatar n tn Last year her speech was a little slurred, her regular Dr. sent her for a MRI, that showed a slight stroke. Gradually her speech became worse so she was sent for another MRI, that showed the same as the previous, not any worse. Then she was sent to this neuro who gave her that diagnosis of MND. Now she has gone for an EMG test and that DR. asked her if she has had a MRI of her neck. Could this be something else ? Does MND move this slowly?
2175879 tn?1338355028 I have three MRI's tonight. One for my head, one for my neck (both due to the stroke), and one for my lower back(suspected ruptured disc). I will hopefullly find out what's going on with the stroke/TIA symtoms and definately find out about the very painful back. The MRI's start at 9pm and don't finish till 1am. That's government health care for you. I really would like some closure on the stroke, or atleast something that tells why I had it.
Avatar n tn Is it against the standarfd of care to alllow 5 hours to elapse without a diagnosis therefore losing the opportunity to admnister stroke busting drugs?
Avatar f tn Got the results back from the MRI..
Avatar n tn Doc said MRI says MS, referral made and morphine, gabapentin and ibuprofen given.
Avatar n tn Although I can certainly understand your frustration and desparation in wanting a diagnosis one way or the other, your neurologist is probably being careful about making the diagnosis of MS so as not to commit to labeling you with a lifelong disease that currently has no cure. Your complex of symptoms certainly could represent MS. Make sure the LP coming up will include an immune panel called Tourtellote's that looks for immune breakdown products in the spinal fluid.
Avatar n tn An MRI is far more accurate that an CT and an MRI and an MRA with contrast medium should have been performed as soon as possible after the CT. The issue of compensation is complicated. Depending on the jurisdiction you may or may not have grounds for what is called a tort. Consult an attorney. Furthermore, I;m not convinced, in the abscence of examining the medical records, that the scan and the physician's actions had anything to do with the codnition of the patient.
Avatar m tn a neurological examination, CT scans (most often without contrast enhancements) or MRI scans, Doppler ultrasound, and arteriography. The diagnosis of stroke itself is clinical, with assistance from the imaging techniques. Imaging techniques also assist in determining the subtypes and cause of stroke. There is yet no commonly used blood test for the stroke diagnosis itself, though blood tests may be of help in finding out the likely cause of stroke.
Avatar n tn Ive also had neck pain.Ive done mri of neck and ct scan of brain still waiting on results,but cant figure out whats going on.Has anyone had this happen 2 them or know anyone this has happened to.Oh and this all started about 2 yrs. ago and just kept getting worse.Not arthritis,fibromyalgia,or rotator cuff.
616084 tn?1221069302 I just had my 3rd MRI The first were done the beginning of 2000 August of this year is my third. All MRI lesions are the same size and same location. Had a spinal tap GTT was elevated. Been diagnosised with MSĀ  Pain has increased, tingling has increased, fatique has increased. Is it possible that I could have something different? Does lesions increase in time?
Avatar f tn A CT scan was non specific, an MRI showed a massive stroke originating in the MCA decimating the basal ganglia, entire caudate and lentiform areas of the brain. She followed this first stroke with a hemorragic stroke further damaging the brain. Another point of interest is that your neck/head pain could possibly be migraine. Migraines come in different shapes and forms. Not just the I've got a migraine, I need to lay down for a while type.
2175879 tn?1338355028 My MRI results came in. This time my neurologist actually found proof that I had a stroke. First they thought it was a TIA, then an ear ache, and then I kinda forced the issue, they did another MRI and actually found a small "disruption" on my right side of my brain. I can't tell you how relieved that makes me.
Avatar f tn MRI brain w/wo contrast on 1.5 Tesla magnet. Multiple subcortical/periventricular white matter lesions with differential diagnosis as stated above. The findings may be related to demyelination/MS. Other etiologies could include vasculitis, small vessel dease amongst other entities.
Avatar f tn What exactly does a Brain MRI show, when its being given to rule out stroke/TIAs? What do you see when there has been TIAs? If TIAs are visable on a Brain MRI, what is done after that diagnosis is given?
Avatar m tn The Neurologists had names for my symptoms (ballistic movement disorder; rt. foot drop, etc) The dx was latent effects of stroke. They said of my MRI of my head that they saw signs of where my stroke took place, but there did not appear to be any recent damage. I also need to add that I had degenerative disc disease, and modate to sever spinal stenosis for several years and have been on corticosteroids non-stop for 42yrs..
Avatar f tn Saw dr zoppa today. dissappointed again. mri ok.
Avatar n tn Acc to the neuro-surgeon, the high homocysteine caused a minor stroke. He has prescribed vitamin b, folic acid and plagril (pill with aspirin) for life. My questions: *Is the diagnonsis conclusive enough? *Is high homocysteine a cause/symptom/fall out of a stroke? *What is the risk of recurrence, given he's now on aspirin for life? *He often has ulcers in his mouth;is it ok for him to be on aspirin? *He now walks 30 min and has cut coffee.Is this enough? *Any other tests he shd undergo?
