Stroke effects on eyes

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke effects on eyes


Avatar n tn Her big stroke was on the left side, though she had a series of several small strokes that were on the right side as well as the left side. The doctors suspect she has a rare clotting condition called kataphil (not sure if that is the correct spelling), that makes her at high risk for clots and strokes. There is a bosrd currently reviewing her case to fund the finances for the test for this condition.
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 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 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 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.
6359965 tn?1393488636 Hi, after stroke based on neuronal damage, some symptoms can persist. The headaches could be the side effects of the medications you are taking. Migraines are intense headaches sometimes accompanied by nausea, vomiting and altered visual sensations. The others are those caused due to brain disorders, disorders of the eyes , neck or ears to name a few. To find a cure you need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. In the meantime you can take OTC Ibuprofen pain medication.
729886 tn?1232662881 In the beginning I had some minor side effects like dry mouth loss of hunger, lots of energy. My firend had the same side effects but also developed insomnia. I thought she was crazy but after a while I developed insomnia and also had some chest pain and numbness in feet. Shortly after taking the pills I had a pulmonary embolism. Which is a blood colt in my lung. The doctors said that they have no idea how i could have developed it. So be very careful.

Avatar f tn re not planning to be sexually active . Before you decide to go on birth control pills, you might consider googling possible side effects of birth control pills. You will find that birth control pills are associated with some pretty dangerous conditions. I used to take birth control pills myself when I was younger. Then my dad had a stroke. This actually opened up my eyes. This is when I decided to read the information pamphlet that comes with each pack of birth control pills very carefully.

Avatar f tn Drug side effects can occur years later which is why you see many drugs being pulled of the market. Clinical trials run for an average of 8 weeks on healthy adults. Plavix side effects: "Gastrointestinal (GI) discomfort has occurred in 27.1% of patients (compared with 29.8% of patients who were treated with aspirin in comparative trials). Other GI side effects have included diarrhea in 4.5%, dyspepsia in 5.2%, nausea in 3.4%, and abdominal pain in 5.6% of patients.
Avatar m tn We are not sure when she had it but we think it was 18hrs before we found her. She had scans done on her brain and they said she had a massive stroke and brain bleed. When we found her she was breathing on her own and had a heart beat but wasn't responsive, she is still like that today. The doctors say she has less than 5% chance of surviving and not to revive her if she has a heart attack as she will end up with no quality of life.
Avatar m tn Approximately 1 week ago, I experienced dizziness, head fogginess, eye blurriness, eye pressure, being lethargic, confused and the list goes on. I thought it was an eye problem. I had my eyes examined for eye pressure as well as the optic nerve. All were normal. I realized that it was possible my thyroid levels could be off. I scheduled a doctor's appointment on Monday and the results came back that I was at 8.5 and that I should be at 0.4 - 4.5. The doctor increased my dosage from 0.
Avatar n tn i'm 17 and i was standing at the edge of my bed folding clothes and i felt like i was about to pass out so i sat down then my head started hurting really bad to where i laid back and closed my eyes and when i opened them i couldn't see for about 20 minutes. i don't know what happened. i've never gotten migraines before nor have i ever had this happened.. i'd just like to know what it could've possibly been.
Avatar f tn It can happen at any age. Just know the side effects of a stroke coming on, the sooner you know the faster you can get treatment. Time lose is brain loss. There are various types of strokes. My stroke was in the brainstem, they consider that to be the worsekind. Your brainstem is like a central hub of your bodies functions. You'll feel numbness, slurring your speech, and your walking is unbalanced. I hope this helps answer your question.....
Avatar f tn Hi my fiance is 46 & he had a hemorrhagic stroke on left side of the brain while at work on April 26, 2010. He never complained of headaches to me, but I could feel something was different. He luckily was working close to the hospital. He collapsed and hit his head on a piece of equipment. He had emergency surgery and they removed a bloodclot 3/4 size of baseball. Just today he opened both eyes and it was fabulous. The Dr.
Avatar m tn all the excitement going on, etc.. that did it. I got right online after it happened looking up doggie stroke and this is what came was all his symptoms to a T, and like I said thankfully for him it was only about a week. He was 11 I think at the time. I called my vet down here where I live, and told him everything and he had me do some things and assured me what it was and it would pass, just couldn't say how long.
Avatar n tn There they did a CT scan of my head and did not find anything abnormal. The ER doctor chalked it up to bad side effects from the Maxalt which should go away on their own. He also said that I might have slept on my arm funny causing it to fall asleep. This was definitely not the case as I am brighter than that. Plus, had that been the case, I really do not think that the numbness would have lasted for so long.
122065 tn?1241385329 Just had an angiography of the eyes with contrast as a followup to the vitreous separation and a cotton wool patch was discovered on the left eye. Health is good - low blood pressure, no diabetes, low cholesterol, etc. Doc assured me it will go away but was concerned with what may have caused it. I am on HRT and he said this could be the culprit. Ae there any symptoms with these patches? That eye is feeling just a bit off.
Avatar m tn my cousin recently died we would smoke spice all the time we just got done smoking a bowl of spice resin and went inside to play xbox when he had a stroke right in front of my eyes he had a long history of heart surgery's and diebetes but could spice cause a 19 year old boy to have a stroke...or brain swelling?
Avatar f tn I was making my bed and than all of a sudden I couldn't focus my eyes. The room was just spinning and then I felt nausea.
