Avatar n tn You can be stressed and also have a true medical condition. For example, if the weakness were on one side of the boy, you should be evaluated for stroke or TIA (i.e., transient stroke). Multiple sclerosis and post-seziure are other conditions that can present this way. If the symptoms migrated, migraine and seizure would be high on the differential. Are you on any medications? Medications can have side effects of lightheadedness and dizziness.
1110049 tn?1409402144 When I had a stroke on 17th June my face dropped on one side. i had a bleed on left side of my brain. My left side is weak and I find talking difficult. I was taken to hospital straight away, and spent nearly two weeks there. That was 8 weeks ago. i have been struggling. My speech hardly improved, and now i have lost my voice, but that may not be due to the stroke. my walking not too bad, but cannot use my left arm and hand.
Avatar n tn Britta Husemann and colleagues at the Neurology Hospital Bad Aibling note that the success of physical rehabilitation after a stroke depends on active walking exercises. However, the disabling after-effects of stroke often initially make such exercises impossible. The Lokomat, they explain, was developed to facilitate treadmill training in paraplegic patients.
Avatar n tn The dose of Haldol used varies depending on the clinical situation, past medical history, and other medications the patient is taking. A dose of 5mg is a common dose prescribed for agitation, and is the typical IV anti-psychotic used to treat ICU psychosis. Therefore, I cannot answer your question completely, becuase the choose of medication and dose depends on the clinical situation at the time. I hope this helps.

Avatar f tn My mom had an episode in August that she describes as heat stroke and dehydration. She had been exposed to warm weather and hadn't had much to drink. That night, for a couple hours she was overheated and couldn't get her body to cool down until she used cold, wet wash cloths on her head and upper body to finally cool herself off. Others in the house were comfortably sleeping under their covers, so the house wasn't overly warm.

Avatar n tn My oncologist has suggested trying Tamoxifen, but first, seeing a hemotologist to determine my risk for blood clots, stroke, etc. I had surgery on my right carotid artery two weeks prior to my lumpectomy in 2007.

Avatar n tn One of the most common after effects of strokes is severe or mild pain in various parts of the body. Pain can usually be minimized very easily with pain medication. Many will just require standard pain relief such as an aspirin while others may need something much stronger such as hospital-grade pain relief medications including morphine. Also, "aproximately 8 percent of people who have had a stroke will suffer from a neuropathic pain caused by damage to neurons in the brain".
Avatar f tn When you read on the drug reaction page, it seems like I have the Rifampin side effects, but I will see how it goes, if not better tomorrow. FORGET IT. I am living on Prayer, Phenagren oral and suppositories and Vistaril. Has anyone here been on this drug combo?
1724364 tn?1371101809 So, this new treatment is helping, I think, but there are definitely some noticeable side effects. I was able to take a shower, and ... I don't know how to describe it, it's like I'm starting to be able to see again? I look different to myself in the mirror. I mean, I've always had some body dysmorphia, but I seem to look different to myself. I'm actually looking forward to seeing Melissa on Saturday, if not Red on Friday -- that is, assuming I have transport.
Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
Avatar n tn To get detailed answers about the effects of near death experiences on the body, it would be best to talk to a doctor or even a med student. Good luck on your book.
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
Avatar n tn In summary however the effects of a CVA ( although the older term Stroke is now used in preference to CVA )partly depend on whether the person is right or left handed. regardless of handedness the opposites side of the body is affected in middle cerebral artery stroke, the most common type.
