Avatar m tn However, danger of a stroke trumps the side effects of the drug. I went into Afib after bypass surgery and was administered Amiodarone, and it stopped the Afib within twenty-four hours. My side effects were itchy eyes from the drug, and believe me, itchy eyes was an easy trade-off from a stroke. Keep us informed.

Avatar n tn My shitzu was sitting on my lap tonight and I looked at her eyes and her left eye seemed as though it was stuck in position. I felt around her face and it felt like her lower jaw had cramped up or something. I got up to call the vet and she shook her head and now she seems fine. Do you know what may have cause that to happen? I'm not sure if I should still take her to the vet or if it was a muscle spasm??

Avatar n tn things have been fine until recently I have had trouble with my eyes. I have trouble focusing especially if my eyes are tired. Some times they are fine. It is almost impossible to see the computer with both eyes open. Do I need to go to an eye doctor, or a neurologist or is there anything that will help? I thought it weird that my eyes were fine after the stroke but now they are getting worse.
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 m tn My daughter had a stroke and seizures when she was about 3 days old. The neurologist said that the stroke affected the left side of her brain but we probably wouldn't notice any significant complications until she got into grade school. They were right, she has been a normal child except she does have problems with speech (finding the right words to use in complete sentences like using the words "to, of, on" in conversations).
Avatar f tn They bother me most when they occur just over one or both eyes, but also are in the back and sides of my head. Will they ever get better like you recover more function gradually after a stroke? Nerve block injections every 4 weeks and Botox injections every 8 weeks are not working as well as they used to, but do help. I've tried all kinds of prophylactic meds which either didn't work or had bad side effects. I've tried accupunture and meditation.

Avatar m tn For the last couple of months I have noticed that I have been getting BLIND spots on the sides of my eyes. I can put my hands out so far on both sides of my face and I can't see my hands. I noticed this to when I am driving. I went to see an eye doctor and he could not find anything wrong with my eyes. He scared me when he asked me if I ever had a stroke. I am 54 and overweight, but I don't think that I ever had a stroke.

Avatar f tn Thanks so much for your response. I am going to do as you advised. I think you have to be proactive in your own health care. The Dr. I am seeing has been treating headaches for a long time and I feel fairly confident in what he is doing. I am keeping them posted on how I am feeling. I just want to make sure that the cure is not worse than the headaches I've was having. I have a follow-up with the Dr. on the 11th of Feb.
Avatar m tn Alright, I am almost half way through accutane. I hit another bump. I came down with a high fever, terrible head ache, chills, dry lips, and eyes. Could this be symptomatic? My skin is clear. I no longer feel lethargic. I do feel strange feelings in my arms and legs. I fear stroke or heart attack. Is it possible? I feel unease at Times. Do I have any reason to be concerned?
Avatar f tn My 51 year old brother had a brain stem stroke and is parallized on both sides from the neck down. The only way he can communite now is his eyes. He hears, sees, understands right now. Will he be parallized the rest of his life? Also his throat is swollen. What are other complications he may go through. Could he die from this anytime? Could he have another stroke? Please explain what he is facing long term?
Avatar f tn I had a isometric stroke Feb 24, they put me on Xarelto which made me bleed bad! They just took me off and now started Plavix and aspirin. Can you take the birth control pill with Plavix? My periods are now horrible with major bleeding and I only stopped for a few days and started my period again and it has not stopped and heavy bleeding with clots. Getting back on the birth control pill I feel sure would fix that.
