Stroke effects left side

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke effects left side


Avatar m tn My husband had a small stroke in the cerebellum 3 weeks ago. The only lasting effects he's had are tingling and a feeling of cold in his left hand. The sensations are unchanged since his stroke, but if they had seemingly disappeared and then came back, and apparently came back stronger, if he wasn't, I'd be in the phone with his neurologist. I err on the side of better to be safe.. A stroke is something I never even considered happening to my hubby.
Avatar n tn So, I started switching leads and came to the point where I could not remember what was once my weak side, I became ambidextrous in a real sense, my right and left hemisphere of the brain were in balance. When doing an exercise, when in therapy, what you do with your right hand or leg, do also with the left. I was given a series of tests, actually they took 5 hours one Sunday morning by a research group and I used both hands.
Avatar n tn My mother woke up with the left side of her cheek swollen and it seems to have affected her lips some. Could she had gone through a stroke while sleeping? She is able to talk without any issues and is not bothered by it.

Avatar n tn Prayer. It works . My mother had a stroke left side brain stroke paralyzed her right side also affected her speech. The doctors we had did not give us hope they told us to put my mom in a nursing home that she probably would not recover. That was not an option for me my brother or my dad. Mom was in the hospital from Nov. 30th to Jan 14th. We went through physical therapy at the hopital with mom and we could see improvement in her even if a little bit daily.
Avatar n tn All medications have potential for some type of side effects, so changing to something else will not gaurantee that a different medication would not have side effects of it's own that could be difficult. In response to the question of other options, there has been some reports regarding a medication Arimedex, that has been studied in the adjuvant setting for post-menopausal women.

Avatar f tn Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: high fever, uncontrolled muscle movements (e.g., stiffness, twitching, shaking), mental/mood/behavior changes (e.g.
Avatar f tn Is his doctor aware of the history of a bleeding ulcer that your post mentions? Has the ulcer completely healed? I certainly would make sure the doctor is aware of this. I know in my case, when taking the Plavix I couldn't drink. I love to drink wine and while on the Plavix one glass would go straight to my head. I felt drunk. And, yes,the bruising is terrible. I walk around with purple marks on my arms all the time.

Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
Avatar n tn The doctor found 3 spots in her heart that needed treatment. Two on the right side and one on the left side. The doctor was able to repair the right side, but the equipment broke down before he could do the left side. Once the equipment was repaired her blood pressure was very low, so they had to stop the procedure. Now she is worse then she was before the ablation. She has a heavy pressure in her chest and she is exhusted.
29837 tn?1414538248 I ask this because overall, I don't feel much, but this morning I woke up with a headache, which is very rare for me. I believe one of the side effects can be a headache. I also notice my hands slightly shaking since starting Harvoni. Anyone experience this? Just curious as to what others are going through. I know this is a new type of treatment, but it would be helpful and put people at ease if others are experiencing the same effects.
Avatar n tn I experienced the side effects I was told could happen, worse cramps and heavier bleeding. I am fine with these because my choice for birth control is very limited because I get blood clots and cannot take the pill. However, I am wondering if anyone has experienced a decrease in thier sex drive becasue of it. I am only 29 years old, married to a very wonderful and attractive man, but honestly I could care less about sex.
Avatar f tn I've found that Aggrenox seems to work without side effects. It's primarily baby aspirin, but also contains a drug that prevents platelets from sticking together. I've taken it twice a day since my stroke, and it appears to work, but who ever knows?
Avatar n tn He has been experiencing symptoms of a minor stoke, such as, left side numbness, weakness, shortness of breath, seeing ghosts in the vision of his left eye. Could this possibly be side effects from these two drugs? He was seen at the hospital and they just concentrated on his testing positive for marijuana and stated he needed psychiatric help.
Avatar n tn Hello, Tingling on the left side of the body means that there may be an abnormality in the right side of the brain.It can be a neurological pathology like motor neuron disease,TIA or stroke or autoimmune condition like multiple sclerosis in which the immune system attacks the central nervous system (CNS), leading to demyelination.It can be diagnosed by MRI brain and MRS of the brain.
Avatar m tn If you still have numbness then it was not a TIA. By definition effects from a TIA resolve themselves in 24 hours. You need to see a neurologist and get some preventative care to prevent a full-blown stroke. The neurologist should also be able to direct therapists to help with what ever defivcits the stroke left you.
Avatar f tn I have had symtoms of tingling only on the left side. In my face, left ear, left arm, leg and foot. These symtoms started in Oct. sometimes worse than others. The Gabapentin started at 300 mg and has increased to 1200 mg then I was placed on Cybalta 30 mg. The symtoms has decreased with all the meds I take but not left me. Before the meds started to work the tingling was always present but with the meds I can feel it but not as strong.
Avatar f tn For the past 3 weeks I've been having headaches, eye pain and loss of vision for a brief moment, and numbness on my left side, along with weakness. My left side feels much cooler to the touch also. I went to the ER and they performed blood tests, MRI, CT scan and found nothing wrong. When I first arrived they said it was probably a Lithium overdose, but later determined not. I stayed in the hospital for 3 days and my symptoms slowly went away.
Avatar n tn Hello dear, You probably had a Transient Ischaemic Attack or a mini stroke caused by the temporary disturbance of blood supply to a restricted area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that usually persists for less than 24 hours.The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision ; difficulty speaking (aphasia); weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis); and numbness or tingling (paresthesia), usually on one side of the body.
Avatar n tn Headaches are still bad and balance is bad, we were lucky that only other side effects are trouble with his speech, left face is impaired and he has trouble with his left eye. My husband is only 38, very active, coaches, works out and is a fireman. There are no problems with highblood pressure, and his heart checked out fine. No one can give us a reason why he had these strokes. I know that we may not ever get that answer, but that would help us to understand this.
5113191 tn?1363787993 I had a stroke three years ago at the age of 21 in my left thalamus. The only lasting effects from it were numbess in the right side of my lower lip and right hand numbness. When I had my stroke I was in peak condition (being a college athlete) but I did drink occasionally, but no smoking. Recently I have been experiencing some new symptoms and they are scaring me. My right arm seems weak, but its subtle, and they area around my mouth is numb. I also have been somewhat dizzy and nauseas.
Avatar m tn He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar n tn My tegritol levels have been very constant for many years. I think my latest level was good and around a few months ago. My left arm has had an internal tingling (like from the nerves), and/or very minor ache lately (maybe a month). I'm in great shape, I run a lot, and not overweight. On 7/13/08 sunday morning I became very dizzy and I felt the same sensations that I have when I'm going into an seisure. I fell to the floor, but eventually the spinning sensation stopped.
Avatar n tn Maybe cut down to two beers, for a week, and then 1 beer, and then stop? Is cutting down slowly a good way to avoid side effects? Is my body getting used to not having alcohol? My stomach now feels better, less gas, and my apetite has increased. I'm not going to have any psychological withdrawls, I feel good without drinking, I'm just worried about the physical withdrawls.
