stroke

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 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 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 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 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?
5283093 tn?1379164447 heart attach ,stroke... every major thing has simple signs and symptoms how can I know if I am in danger ?if every major and minor thing has almost like same symptoms ?
Avatar m tn Hi, its difficult to tell the exact prognosis. As the post stroke swelling subsides she may recover function. But now all depends on if her vitals are stable or not. As she is improving and if the "stroke" is stabilized, and there is no further bleeding or clotting I would remain optimistic. Regards.
Avatar f tn There is such a thing as a TIA (transient ischemic attack), which resembles a stroke in how it works but reverses itself within about 24 hours if I remember correctly on the time frame. However, please note that one of the hallmarks of a stroke or stroke-like event is the inability to speak in coherent sentences, can't stick out the tongue, facial weakness on one side, etc.
Avatar f tn I agree with nursegirl6572's comments but wanted to add to it... The type of headache you described could be an occipital migraine or a stroke (which can present as a strong headache). So some simple tests you can do while waiting for medical help is the Stroke STAR test: Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
Avatar n tn She recently got into a major altercation with some family folks and because of the mental and emotional distress she has lost her speech ability. She can speak but with a heavy tongue and she says that she cannot feel her tongue. Can anyone tell me if this phenomenon is temporary or permanent. Also what can I do to reverse this condition?
Avatar m tn Earlier today she suddenly felt numbness on her left side and started to have some trouble speaking and her mouth suddenly changed form and was almost like her tongue did not respond for a some minutes. At the first sign, I immediately called emergency services. An ambulance then came within 10 minutes and 5 minutes after the paramedic started asking questions/diagnosing etc. she started to feel almost OK. He called the hospital anyways and they asked him to take her over there.
Avatar n tn I would take my med to the ER.It could be a drug interaction, or even signs of an oncoming stroke. Do not wait around. Better safe than sorry.
Avatar f tn I have dysphagia since august 2016. It got worst and worst until I found myself unable to swallow any solid food. Since December 2016 I am drinking my meals thanks to nutridrinks. I was obese (120kg) and it took time for the doctors to take my symptoms seriously. I am now down to 76kg and still no one knows why it happened and why I still can't eat.
Avatar n tn Sorry for my ignorance but is a lesion considered a stroke? And would this cause the tongue to not function properly or at all? If not would any kind of brain lesion or tumor cause the tongue to stop working?
Avatar f tn I find these symptoms worrying as you feel like you are having a stroke. All have been ittermittent/on and of everyday but not constant apart from the tongue numbness, it is painful to move my tongue and talk, feels weird. My question to the forum is: Does anyone know if migraines hit in the same spot each time. Like my numbness on my face is always on the same area (path pattern if you like) and same with leg.
Avatar n tn My baby had a stroke prior to or at birth that affected her right frontal lobe and right temportal lobe. At 6 months, she appears to have no outward signs of the stroke. From what I've read, some of the damage of the stroke may not be seen until later. Does anyone else have a child like mine? What did you find over time.
Avatar f tn Two dates missing on a current Electronic Health Record (EHR) had led me to dig up an old one. The dates are in the allergy section and they occured three weeks apart. The source was Lisinopril and then all ACE-Inhibitors, and the reactions were 'Renal Artery Stenosis' and 'INCR CREA due to R.A.S.', respectfully. I've been told this could be the source of my kidney atrophy and the reasion I have ESRD.
Avatar m tn my 85 year old mother had a stroke a few days ago and on the 4th day she was asked to show her finger and she did she also squeeze my sisters finger and she nodded to a question she had a mild to big stroke affecting her left hand is this a good sign for recovery ?
Avatar f tn I had a beautiful 13 yr old pit/chow mix. She was in good health, had recently been to the vet & had blood work done. the vet told us whatever we were doing to continue doing it that Shady was in good health. On Oct. 15th my husband let the dogs out of the garage to go to the bathroom then he got the bowls put dry food in them & brought them in the house to prepare. We add cooked brown rice (with carrots & peas) and a little canned food. Shady did not come back in the garage.
Avatar m tn I would see the doctor as soon as possible, please do not wait, if it was a stroke or TIA (mini stroke) waiting will only make matters worse.
