Common Questions and Answers about Stroke signs smile


Avatar n tn A women is having symptoms of a stroke but test come back negative of no stroke, what is the cause of the stroke symptoms?
Avatar m tn I have no weakness on either side of my body. I can smile, raise my arms,and my gait is unchanged. I am aware of the signs of a stroke (due to teaching CPR and First Aid). I don't seem to have any of these signs but I am at a loss of what to do. My blood pressure today has been as high as 120/77 with pulse of 93 and a low as 111/74 pulse of 89. I need to know what I should do.
Avatar n tn I agree with your concern over these symptoms- this sounds like signs of a stroke to me however, I'm not a doctor, so don't take that as it's what is happening. I'd really recommend that you call your doctor and talk to them right away about these symptoms. If you can't get a hold of them, it doesn't hurt to get to the ER- especially if it could be a possible stroke.
Avatar n tn Started feeling weird back in december, fatique, headaches, weakness, trouble spelling, etc..etc. Had Ct scan in march, results came back normal, is it possible for to me to had a stroke and it heal completely in 3 months, to where it would not be detected? Also, had mri done in june..results came back normal as well.
Avatar n tn Numbness in your lip, cheek, arm, leg favoring one side are possible and serious signs of a pending TIA/stroke. TIA is the same thing as a stroke only difference is it doesn't leave permanent damage like a CVA/stroke. That numbness is your body telling you there is a blockage somewhere. My recommendation if your having numbness to your face and side to see your doctor immediately, if possible see a Cardiologist as there are many heart ailments that can lead to stroke.
Avatar f tn An dozen I noticed today that when I smile, only the left side of my mouth immediately goes up into a smile, if I focus on it i can make both sides smile, but otherwise it is just the one. I've also had this weird tenderness of the scalp above my right ear as well and the overall side of my face has a general tight feeling. And occasionally I'll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else?
Avatar f tn My mother-in-law had her gallbladder removed about 1 month ago. She is experiencing severe migraines, along with severe nausea, and the left side of her face has become numb, and droopy. The first thing we thought was a mild stroke, she was admitted into the hospital, after MRI'S, Cat-scans, countless bloodwork, and ultrasounds, stroke was ruled out. Now, her dx is vascular migraines.
Avatar n tn My grandma did not have a stroke, but she had Bell's palsey. One side of her mouth drooped and her smile was affected. I read it was important to massage the area regularly and every day and suggested she do this. God used her faithful massage of the area to bring her full smile back! It was such a blessing.
Avatar n tn Hi Sorry to hear of your husband's episode :( If indeed he has had a TIA (mini stroke), treat it is a warning. Find out the cause & do everything you can to address that cause. This is his chance yo stop the big one happpening.
Avatar m tn My 60 year old mother is recovering from her 3rd stroke . This current stroke was a massive one & she can not Talk or Walk or respond to commands... Her right side is paralyzed. All she can do at the moment is open her eyes and look to the Left and stare. The Doctors told me that this is how she might be for the rest of her life. Im scared to death because she is so young and i cant picture my life without her in it .
Avatar f tn hi, your symptoms are like stroke but not completly, you should check it for other conditions such as bells pulsy or may be other things.
Avatar n tn I am no Doctor but numbness and tingling to one side with weakness to that side could mean a stroke or mini stroke when you feel this try to smile and look in the mirror if only on corner of you smile lifts up get to the hospital asap. Good Luck and I wish and pray for you the best.
Avatar n tn to everyone telling jesskiekins that this is a stroke, cut it out. the worst it could be is a TIA (transient ischemic attack) since the symptoms went away, and even that is unlikely. probably bell's palsy.
Avatar n tn ve been told there is a test to see if 911 should be called for someone suspected of havine a stroke. The test consists of three actions to ask the suspected stroke victim to perform. The three questions are; 1) Ask the person to smile. 2) Ask the person to raise both arms. 3) Ask the person to speak a simple sentence. Supposedly, if the person can't do one or more of these things, there's a chance he's having a stroke. Is this true?
Avatar n tn I have a 6 month old son. He has not started cooing. He will look at you and smile and sometimes laugh unless you are holding him. Minimal eye contact when being nursed. No imitation of facial expressions. Do these things add up to early signs of autism?
Avatar n tn What are the signs & side effects of an ischemic stroke
Avatar m tn Getting a stroke is one of the scariest things that would happen to a person because it can cause a lot of bad things to happen to them that anyone would not like. In the US alone there are about 700,000+ US citizens who have a stroke and that is a scary number. Do you know why a person gets a stroke? That is because your brain did not get blood to it and it will get damaged as a result hence the stroke.
Avatar n tn Hi, Sinusitis develops when the mucous membranes of your upper respiratory tract — the nose, pharynx, sinuses and throat — become inflamed. The swelling obstructs the sinus openings and prevents mucus from draining normally. This creates a moist environment conducive to infection. The symptoms are usually head ache,facial pain,nasal congestion.It does not cause blurred vision/speech or numbness.
Avatar f tn m far from a doctor but to me sounds like a stroke or mini stroke I would totally call a doctor or go to ER just in case
