Avatar f tn feels like the left side of face numb..from under left eye to jaw and from the center of my nose on left side...,god wonder if this is a stroke. electrical storm in the brain or what.
Avatar n tn This will depend on the area of the brain affected, the more extensive the area of brain affected, the more functions that are likely to be lost. If there was no trauma to this area, this could be an infection or nerve-related problem (if the lips are numb). You can have this evaluated further for proper diagnosis. Complete medical history and physical examination are important in assessing if other tests should be done. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your assessment is ischemic damage reflected on my brain scan. I have read the side effects of zocor because I am already experiencing several side effects from Lamictal. Are there any natural medications I could use as an alternative? I have low blood pressure and my cholesterol levels are slightly over the normal range.
Avatar n tn You should also have an MRI of your brain with and without contrast to make sure you have not had a stroke of metastatic disease to the brain. If the dilantin is not helping I would stop it. Good luck This information is provided for general medical education purposes only.

Avatar m tn Can there be residual side effects of a stroke like face tingling, dizziness, jaw tightness, muscle weakness?
1127040 tn?1289718662 That is totally dependent on the area of the brain that was damaged. You would have to ask medical staff which area of the brain controls the heart. From personal experience it is not the motor cortex or pre-motor cortex or I would be dead.
Avatar n tn My friend, 60 yrs old is experiencing a throbbing headache centered on the left side of the brain directly above the left ear. The pain goes into the ear - mostly the exterior portion of the ear. He does take medication for high blood pressure - though his blood pressure is still around 150 - 160. The headache has continued for 2-3 days. Could this be a warning for a stroke or anorizism (sp?)?
Avatar n tn In right handed people and 50% of left handed people, speech and language function resides in the left side of the brain , a stroke on the left side therefore will cause right sided weakness and language difficulties ranging from mild problems with naming to complete inability to read, write , speak or understand spoken language.
Avatar f tn My mother in law had a stroke back at the beginning of March. She has severe arthritis in one knee in particular and has difficulty rehabbing because the knee fills with blood due to the arthritis and she cannot get to the point of standing to do the therapy. The coumadin has left her depressed, dizzy, cold and overall loss of appetite. She wants to recover but this drug is very difficult. It comes to the point of quality of life...

Avatar n tn Your mother suffered from ischemic stroke of which the greatest danger is posed by embolic strokes followed by thrombotic and lacunar strokes. On the other hand, the survivors of hemorrhagic have a greater chance of recovering function than those suffering from ischemic stroke. Most of the patients, nearly about three quarters recover functional independence after a stroke. She would require intensive physical therapy and conscious attempt to activity.
401095 tn?1351391770 ), you need to be watchful for increased blood pressure, headaches, or insomnia. These side effects are indications that an excessive stimulation of the nervous system has occurred. Do not take these amino acids if you are currently taking standard antidepressant medications.

Melatonin Melatonin is helpful for some cases of seasonal affective disorder.
Avatar n tn She does not talk, walk and crawls on her bottom because she does not use her left side of her body much. She has started physical therapy and doctors want blood tests done to see if she was born with this or to rule out a stroke. I have never heard of a baby having a stroke?? Is this cyst something that can be removed? What would be the next step and any suggestions for a second opinion doctor?
Avatar m tn Her neglect of left side is also decressed but still is there as she cant see left side of the oicture or read left side of the sentence. we are using flash card to stimulate her from that side. My main concern is she still does not talk sense and not able to related present.. although she can perfectly recall past with minute detail of what happened just now. My question is that normal? will she be back in her senses??

Avatar n tn I was released. I was told I should have no side effects. But now I have bad head aches on my left temple and I get a stabbing pain on my temple and neck, that last that last just several seconds. Also my speach has been effected slightly. Often I will be talking and a word will pop in a sentence where it doesnt belong, and I forget just what I want to say. Could you tell me how long these symptons last?
Avatar m tn You may have had an intra operative TIA or stroke that affected the region in your brain which controls your gustatory sense. I am not sure if this will recover, but I would suggest that you see a neurologist who will probably order an MRI to see the cause of this symptoms. This may not have been related to the surgery and may have occurred separately, so it is important that you obtain his opinion of how to minimize any further events.
983008 tn?1329925830 Feelin yucky, appear to have side effects from the carbamazapine, - can't believe it, I'm on the lowest dose! double vision, headache, dry throat, horrible taste, cough, woosy and dizzy - course they could all be from the suspected MS but I didn't have them until I started the Carbamazapine.
Avatar f tn I had a stroke in 2010 which paralyzed my whole left side last week I noticed my hair falling out on left side of my head a white patch and then stared fallout. I got my left side back to working.
Avatar m tn My concern with your symptoms would be a small stroke, resulting in numbness of the Left side of your body. I am especially concerned since you give a history of a tooth infection. Whenever there is a tooth infection that is untreated, there is a risk of the bacteria going in to the blood stream and attaching to the valves inside the heart. The bacteria can then grow there in to a vegetation, and parts of it can break of and go to the brain, resulting in a stroke.
Avatar n tn An 85 your old male suffered a stroke in 2004. He recovered fully from this, but in 2006 had a series of TIA's and suffered a massive stroke. He was paralysed down the left side but has regained his use of this although his hand is still weak.his mind was a bit out of sorts ie forgetful and confused at the time but relatively fine. Now he is forgetful often doesnt recognise me straight away and takes a while to answer questions also to register that you have spoken to him.
