Stroke signs tongue

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke signs tongue


Avatar f tn They last about 20 minutes. Blood tests, CT scans, and mri/mra showed no signs of a stroke. Experts said these episodes could have been mini strokes. The neurologists said they could have been seizures. Every time I sneeze I'm so afraid that it will happen again. Does any one have any idea of what is causing this problem?
Avatar n tn It's probably a panic attack. Take some deep breaths, drink some hot tea, do something to relax. You may encounter some heart palpitations, but do your best to stay calm and breathe, center yourself. If there's any associated swelling or signs of a heart attack or stroke, seek immediate medical attention, but I'm sure you'd have mentioned these, so like I said, it's most likely a panic attack.
Avatar n tn My wife recently started to slur her words, have difficulty swallowing, feels like her tongue is swollen. She went to an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor. He checked and did not see any signs of infection or obstruction. He mentioned a possible stroke, MS, and ALS. He scheduled her for a barium swallow test and referred her to a neurologist. Could Myasthenia Gravis be another possibility?
Avatar n tn I would ask for more specific antibody testing done, such as Graves and Hashimoto's. MPV has to do with the coagulation of the blood....lower is higher risk of bleeding and signs of cancers, etc......Higher #'s can put you at cardiac and stroke risks. (Layman's terms: maybe thickness of blood?) What did your dr say????

Avatar f tn My tongue felt swollen it lasted for a few mins and then it happened again last Friday again Sunday and again today. With out the swollen tongue that only happened once. Am I having TIAs and can you have them multiple times a day every day?
Avatar f tn A week ago, I began having symptoms of numbness and tingling on one side of my tongue that spread to my entire tongue, all of my lips and patches on my face. At first I thought it was related to the diabetic neuropathy on my feet but after speaking with my doctor, I went to the ER. The EKG, CT-Scan and blood work all came back normal and later during the week, so did the ultrasound on my neck arteries and the echo on my heart.
Avatar n tn today i have had a few episodes of the chills, sweats, and numbness in my fingertips an my whole tongue. scares me.
Avatar n tn Following some reading on the internet, I understand 2 types of scans are normally used at this stage to detect for signs of a stroke - CT scan and MRI scan. I have not found out from my dad which scan is he going for tomorrow. However, I wish to understand better what these scans can tell about a patient. Since TIA does not leave any permanent damage to the brain, can one say there is no tell-tale signs in the brain to suggest if a TIA had actually happen?
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.
1358419 tn?1277389870 I had a MRI done a few days ago to rule out stroke since I was showing all signs of a mini stroke. left sided numbness and weakness, blurry and double vision, insomnia, unable to walk, slight facial droop, bad taste on left side of tongue, searching for words, etc. All the symptoms mentioned are still happening- today June 24 is the 4th day. Symptoms get worse if I have tired or upset, but overall they remain constant.
Avatar n tn Vitamin B12 deficiency may result negative in hematological, neurological, and gastrointestinal conditions. The hematological systems and signs of B12 deficiency include a decrease in red blood cell count, skin discolorations, decreased energy, fatigue, shortness of breath, and palpitations. Severe B12 deficiency can also result in anemia. Even in the absence of anemia, the neurological effects of vitamin b12 deficiency can still occur. This is especially true for the elderly.
Avatar m tn As a result of a stroke several years ago I continue to bite my tongue at the same location and bite it several times each meal. A dentist ground the edges off the offending tooth (teeth) but it has done no good. I cant chew on that (right) side anyway so I might as well have the tooth totally ground away but the dentist is too timid or inexperienced to do it right; I'm 82 years old and need some help. I have little faith in the medical community in general.
Avatar f tn I was stupid and googled why my tongue is crooked and it says it is a stroke! I have all the use of my limbs and have no balance problems but that was the only explanation for that problem...Please I am so damn scared now, I cant sleep and I am going is crying!!!
Avatar f tn I have had cramps in my tongue off & on for the last several years. This is very frightening & I've been worried about having tongue cancer, a stroke or a heart attack. I asked my dentist about it. He referred me to my doctor who referred me to an oral surgeon. None of them had ever heard of such a symptom. They all checked my tongue for tumors & found nothing wrong. Last night I was awakened from a sound sleep when I had a very strong cramp in my tongue.
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 noticed recently that one side of my tongue is obviously larger than the other. I have no idea if it's always been like this. It does not hurt at all, and there is no unusual feeling. Naturally, I did an internet search and the horrifying diagnosis of ALS came up immediately. I have no tongue weakness at all. I can tent both cheeks, have no trouble swallowing or talking that I've noticed. I have had muscle twitching, but no muscle weakness.
Avatar m tn However, since this past Dec 2009, I have been having issues with my tongue. 17 days after I gave another guy oral, I developed red lesion spots at the tip of my tongue. They only lasted for 3.5 days and did not really hurt. They also had a little bit of white gunk looking stuff develop on it. They came back on Jan 22 and lasted two days....but back again on Feb 1st. I thought it was herpes as my first instinct, since I have a fear of it....
Avatar n tn what might be the cause of waking up suddenly from sleep during night because of a choking sensation due to severe swelling of tongue (so much swelling that I was unable to fit in my dentures) .This was associated with extremely garbled speech. I didn't call 911 because i couldn't speak. I checked in mirror and my smile was not distorted. I am a 63 yr. old female who is on medication for hypertension and have a strong family history for stroke and heart disease.
Avatar f tn My mom had an hemorrhagic stroke 2 months ago and 2 days later her tongue had became so swollen and it's protruding out of her mouth, the doctors has no clue what the cause is, maybe I should say they're not trying to get a clue, I believe it may be an allergic reaction to one of the ace inhibitor she's taking, I ask the doctor if she's able to take steroids to see if it will maybe help.
Avatar f tn Had stroke two years ago. Tongue has progressively become numb. Is there new hope/treatment for help in relieving and/or stopping creeping numbness?
Avatar n tn I have been biting my tongue the last 4-5 months about every two weeks. I found a dental paste work the best at night with no saliva if posssible. I also had 2 strokes 4 yrs ago and am healthy except for my right side which is weaker.
Avatar n tn Hi, Disorders or damage of the 12th cranial nerve (hypoglossal nerve) cause weakness or wasting (atrophy) of the tongue on the affected side. This nerve is responsible for movement of the tongue. Causes of the nerve damage include include a tumor or bone abnormality at the base of the skull, a stroke, infection of the brain stem, or an injury to the neck. The tongue becomes weak on the affected side and wastes away or atrophies at last.
