Avatar n tn The risk factors for a stroke are the same as for heart disease. A stroke will usually produce symptoms like, numbness and weakness on one side, confusion, slurred speach, sudden collapse from parlysis, blurred vision, and a severe headache. If you notice these symptoms in someone call 911 right away and keep the patinet calm and relaxed.
Avatar f tn Lastly, transient one-sided body numbness (lasting for example for minutes up to 30 minutes then resolving) could be due to a migraine (the aura of migraine, in which case following the numbness, a headache occurs) or seizures (which would be important to evaluate given the prior stroke history). These are a few causes of one-sided numbness (excluding focal hand numbness, which could be something called carpal tunnel syndrome, for example).

Avatar n tn Hello, Causes of numbness of head are diabetes, hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidism,vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition, transient ischemic attack or stroke, motor neurone disease, or autoimmune disorders like multiple sclerosis or lupus erythematosus. A diagnostic evaluation by a doctor is necessary to rule these out. Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the numbness is gone or not.
Avatar n tn Usually, these infarcts occur due to occlusion of brain arteries and results into stroke. Therefore, this may be associated with headache, numbness and paralysis like symptoms. Unfortunately, rehabilitation is the only effective way to help the patient regain function to the possible extent and prevent from permanent losses. If rehabilitation program is appropriately instituted, most of the stroke patients can regain maximum functions with appropriate therapy, training and support services.

Avatar f tn I woke up two days ago and the right side of my body (from my shoulder to the toes) has gone numb. More percisely, my skin is numb. I do not have any numbness on my face and my vision is fine. I do not feel any weakness either. I have been tired for about a month but figure that is from the new job but maybe I was wrong. I sleep on my right side or my stomach. I do have a dull pain in my right hip but it is the kind of pain that I wouldn't even register if not for the numbness ..
Avatar m tn The numbness fainting and palpitations that he experienced could be because of high fever and headache. Sometimes numbness can be a harmless symptom as a result of excessive stress, fear or anxiety. I would suggest you to discuss this with his treating doctor and please keep a watch, if it occurs again it needs to be evaluated.
Avatar f tn this Last couple of weeks I have been experiencing some sort of numbness in the right side of my body. Also a headache and some dizziness. I have not been able to digest food properly for approximately three years. I smoke about a pack a day for over 15 yrs. I just stopped drinking when i found out i was pregnant. Before that i drank pretty regualarly for the last year or so.
Avatar f tn Over the past year, I have been experiencing periods where my left side of my face will become numb and tingly similar to when you get a novacaine shot at the dentist. Also my ear feels like there is something in there that is affecting my hearing.I had my sinuses checked and my ENT said they were fine. Recently the symptons have started to come more frequently. The new sympton is the tip of my nose gets really cold and sometimes my ear.
Avatar f tn Hi, How was the result of the diagnostic tests done? Severe headache that occur in stroke may be caused by cerebral vasoconstriction or a powerful spasm of a blood vessel in the brain. In time, the blood vessel often relaxes and goes back to normal. However, further evaluation may be indicated to determine the cause and you may need to take stronger prescription medications.
Avatar f tn The numbness and tingling, troubled speech have disappeared but his headache has not. Could this be the signs of a mini stroke? Please help! No, my nephew did not go to the hospital which I freaked out about because I just got off the phone with my mother about the whole situation. People failed to inform me til' now. Had I known, I would have insisted he went to the ER.
Avatar n tn Transient one-sided body numbness (lasting for example for minutes up to 30 minutes then resolving) could be due to a migraine (the aura of migraine, in which case following the numbness, a headache occurs) or seizures. Since your numbness has persisted, I agree an evaluation by a neurologist is warranted. It is reassuring that your MRI did not show stroke per your statement. It would be very useful to know the DWI and ADC results if they were available.
Avatar f tn Yesterday while driving home from work, I experienced a numbness on the right side of my face and a sharp pain almost like a sinus headache not as a bad as a migraine. I didn't feel dizzy nor did I feel numb anywhere else. After a few minutes it went away. I honestly didn't think a thing about it until I told my husband last night and he said it might have been a mini stroke.

I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.

Avatar f tn The symptoms of migraine and transient ischemic attack (TIA) often overlap. TIA symptoms are similar to those of stroke but do not last as long and may present with 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.
Avatar f tn I became very dehydrated and I could not even bring myself to stand up. I had a terrible headache and I felt as awful as I have ever felt. In the morning my roommate took me to our seriously lacking medical center on campus where they gave me a blue pill to keep me from throwing up and instructed me to keep drinking water because I was extremely dehydrated. The doctor told me that it was a migraine headache. This happened a few more times that fall, but with less intensity.
Avatar n tn Hello, last week I took the perscribed Migraine Maxalt for the first time for a headache. I awoke in the middle of the night with heart palpitations, an anxious feeling, and numbness (pins and needles) on the right side of my body (in my arm, hand, leg, and foot). I also had a cold feeling in my left hand down to my fingertips. I awoke in the morning with a pain in the left side of my neck which subsided within 5 minutes or so. The numbness in my left arm did not go away however.
Avatar n tn I am 48 years old and other than a bout with viral meningitus when I was 29 I have been healthy. I have a fear now of headache and numbness.

Just wanted to share this.
