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.

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 f tn sounds like you have had a stroke at some point on the left side of your brain, and thats why your right side of your body is affected. I am no doctor or no know it all, however I had a small stroke myself 3yrs ago, and that is exactly the same symptoms that I had, beside's my speech was affected more, I studdered a lot when I would talk, plus it really affected my short term memory.I also have a strong history of migraines and was told that the two are related.
Avatar n tn My Dad suffered a massive left side brain bleed 2 days ago 114 ml's. He ia on a vent braething above it and has some pain response. He keeps moving his left side arm and leg. Doctor's are not giving him very good odds. Has anyone had a loved one survive this. He is 73 years old.
Avatar m tn I suffered a mini stroke a few weeks ago, losing feeling in my left side. I have the feeling back in my leg but it's not 100%. Although I have major pain in my left arm which is causing me problems sleeps as the tablets I am on does seem to work as I am taking morphine as well. The part that I don't understand is that I had a MRI and they found white with black circles on my brain, can you show some light on this please what are they?
Avatar n tn Hmmmm...a mini bleed on the surface??? That sounds like a subarachnoid hemorrhage which is another form of a stroke. That's where the bleed is on the surface of the brain between the brain and the skull, which is just as devastating. It doesn't have to bleed into the brain for it to be a stroke. Make sure her blood pressure stays down and talk to a neurologist. If the doctors say it wasn't a stroke you should ask exactly what was it that happened.
Avatar n tn The fact that the hematoma is regressing is a good sign but how long is hard to tell. Paralysis of one side of the body is one of the features of stroke. The medical management includes medications to dissolve the clot, to prevent further clot formation and to keep the risk factors like High BP, and high cholesterol under control. Rehab therapy helps in recovery from loss of physical function. Please make sure that the rehab therapy is under a trained instructor.

Avatar f tn I had sudden severe migraines that were characteristically different than any that I had ever had before. They were on the front, side and back of my head. No pain pills worked on them.

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 f tn He also has pnemonia, AIDS, High cholesterol, alot of stress, and is a heavy smoker. He cant move the left side of his body and the right side of his face is drooping, the doc said he will most likely be permanetly blind in his right eye and have blurred vision in his right eye. His right side of his brain has 50% damage. Besides the paralasys, he is just a little different, not quite himself. Doesnt carry on a conversation very well and doesnt seem to know what is going on all of the time.

Avatar f tn Stroke happened on my left brain stem so it was explained to me the left side of the brain controls the left side of face and then crosses to the rt side of the body. Months after that I started having trouble with speech and memory. Then the rt arm/rt leg weakness. I fell in that episode and mri was done and just showed original lesion. Followed this with an EEG and found frequent seizures were occuring.

Please feel free to message me any questions, comments or just to talk.

Avatar f tn ve experienced numbness on tongue and lips extending to the whole side of my face. This facial numbness has been going on for about a week. In the past couple of days my left eyelid is twitching and I sometimes have a blurry spot in my left eye. I'm not in any pain but I am uncomfortable and kind of anxious. My doctor ruled out stroke and lyme disease and says this is "complex migraine". She seems pretty unconcerned and wants to follow up in 6 weeks.
