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.
Avatar n tn I have similar after-effects from a stroke. I find gabapentin helpful.
Avatar f tn He took me off the Bactrim DS, but left me on the Rifampin. 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?
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 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.
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 f tn I am doing this tracker to see if it helps me monitor the effects that the Pill has on me and my body.
Avatar f tn I would like to hear from anyone with advice on STROKE REHABILITATION, especially for right sided paralysis (Left-Hemisphere Stroke)... In doing alot of reading it seems that speech is one of the things effected. I understand each stroke and stroke patient is different, but what could we expect in relation to time of recovery and how much recovery should we realistically expect? Any advice or experiences shared would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn However, when walking on the floor, patients in the Lokomat group were able to stand significantly longer on the paralyzed leg. This, say the investigators, is important because weakness and sensory impairment in the paralyzed leg will cause the patient to limp. In addition, the Lokomat group lost an average of about 6.4 pounds of fat mass and gained muscle mass of around 7.4 pounds. The conventional physiotherapy group increased their body mass by approximately 2.
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 I think there really might be a problem, it is just that by the time he got evaluated by the doctor and all the scans, the symptoms have already abated. This can be something similar to what is occurring in adults as transient ischemic attacks but this is rather unlikely among children. Stroke like symptoms in children are mostly due to other underlying condition like coagulation and thrombosis problems.
Avatar f tn I am concerned about the long term heath effects on the body from taking Ambien, and I also take Methadone 10mg and Hydrocodone 10/325 for pain.
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.
518117 tn?1429276273 I don't think I have wrote about the appt. Stephanie and me went to on March 1 with the medical examiner. We got some answers. Certain things the M.E. could not answer. Actually I think there are missing pieces and we may never know. Todd died 30-40 minutes before he was found. That really threw me to be honest. The coroner weeks earlier had told me that the blood from Todd's ears and nose were part of the death process. I don't agree with that. I have never seen anyone die.
Avatar n tn 4 years ago he had a stroke, after the stroke half his body has a burning sensation inside, he feels like hot chillies burning inside the body 24 hrs. The right ear also burns, it is the right side of the body only in some places. Has tried acupuncture, massage, now on homeopathic medicine, was told that it could be a nerve that has gone after the stroke. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cokegirl.
Avatar n tn Im not sure, but is it not a case of hitting a nerve? All injections can carry this risk?
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 Weakness or numbness on one side of the body does not mean that it was a Stroke. The adverse effects of Effexor overdose are- vertigo, dizziness, nausea, numbness/tingling in the hands or feet, sleepiness, rapid or slow heartbeat, low blood pressure, seizures, or coma. Since you had taken a heavy overdose and that too pills expired 5 yrs back, the adverse effects would be even worse in severity.
1474856 tn?1288289049 numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system.
Avatar f tn body aches, fatigue, sleepiness.
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 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 f tn I have been anorexic for over 20 years and have been in a number of rehabs. Right now I am doing better then I have in years and eating more then I ever have. I still struggle to gain weight but I no longer starve myself. But anorexia has ruined my health. They say you can reverse what it has done to your body. I believe some of it can be reversed but you pay a price for it. I can no longer eat a lot of foods that I used to eat because my body can't tolerate it anymore.
18089930 tn?1463091690 When he suffers his stroke he loses function on one side of his body and becomes disoriented. He is taken to the ER right away. How long is he likely to be in the hospital? What is the plausibility for either lasting effects or a complete recovery?
