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 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 Hi, I'm a 21 yr old female who had a iscemic stroke 3 months ago caused by my pill. I'm almost back to normal now living my life which I was before the stroke. I'm on clopidagrel to thin my blood which I need to be on forever. I want to hear from anyone in the same age bracket - to talk to.
Avatar n tn My mom had good health and no warning signs before the stroke, not even a headache, my dad found her this way mid-morning. The neurosurgeon did not offer much hope for us to survive the stroke nor in her recovery. She has already beat the odds. My mom was in ICU for 3 weeks and step-down 1 week and in rehab hospital for two months now. I have come to learn the dr.'s don't like or really now prognosis on recovery because everyone recovers differently.
Avatar n tn My mother is 80 and just had a stroke 5 days ago. Unfortunately the dr. did not recognize her signs so she was not given any drugs for her stroke. She walked into the hospital and now has no ability to move her left side. She could move her right side after the stroke but the last couple of days she is saying her ability to do so is decreasing. We are at a small hospital. Do we get her out of here? Is this in any way "normal"?
Avatar n tn Just about 2 months ago I began developing strange allergic reactions. They have occurred on my feet, hands, back of knee, upper thigh, lip and now tongue. I have gone to the doctor before and they said it was contact dermatitis. I have not figured out what I'm allergic to yet and am still waiting for a call back from the allergy department. Last night, I woke up at about 3am with a swollen tongue. It really freaked me out.
Avatar f tn I suspect an EMG is next, but i would still like to know from an outside source what some of the possible causes of upper motor neuron signs (along with the sensory signs). ALS usually doesn't give sensory signs that I know of. (I am a 43 year old female with a 10 year history of extreme fatigue, some elelvated body temp,and nightime myoclonus). Any info. greatly appreciated!
Avatar n tn Hi Marlenap, How are you? How is your friend? Stroke warning signs are clues your body sends that your brain is not receiving enough oxygen. This includes: sudden numbness or weakness of face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body, sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding, sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes, sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, and sudden severe headache with no known cause.
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?
469720 tn?1388149949 Use of birth control pills and pregnancy pose special stroke risks for women. Prior stroke, TIA or heart attack - The risk of stroke for someone who has already had one is many times that of a person who has not. Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) are "warning strokes" that produce stroke-like symptoms but no lasting damage. TIAs are strong predictors of stroke.
Avatar n tn I have had some problems with waking up numb in the face,tongue and feet. I have carpol tunnel on my hands so Im already use to my hands falling asleep, but when other things start to happen its scary. I went to see dr he sent me to a neuroligist, he says that I had small strokes and ms, when I asked what ms was he says that dont worry you wont make it to old age and go blind ,and in wheel chair and die. what a jerk I drove home crying thinking I was never going to see my kids grow up.
Avatar f tn But, this burning tongue problem started the first week of last August. It's like I burnt my tongue on hot tea, but it never goes away. I affects mostly the tip of my tongue and my sometimes there's a horrible metallic taste to everything. This started BEFORE I knew of the thyroid 'problem' I had. This sounds alot like what some of you have said is a side effect of RAI treatment. But I haven't had that (yet). And I've read that it could also be caused by thyroid disease!
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 On 18 August 2011 I suffered from an episode, which at the time I thought may have been a stroke. It began very suddenly when I said a few words incorrectly, which was closely followed by struggling to find the words I wanted to say. Next I remember getting a mass of tingling down my right thigh and from that point, I lost the ability to move my right foot forward and I needed to swing my leg forward to walk.

Avatar n tn My 75 year-old mother had an acute ischemic stroke a week ago today. She had a frontal parietal infarct that damaged a third of her left hemisphere. She hasn't really regained any level of alertness, though has shown marked improvement every day. Yesterday was the first time she was able to really open her eyes and look at things, though she closes them again after a few seconds. She can hear and move all her extremeties, though the movement is much more limited on her right side.
Avatar f tn He was 8 years of age, approximately 80lbs, and showed no signs of being sick before he passed. The night before he played like he always had and ate his dog food as usual. On the morning of his passing he was with me in my room most of the morning. He slept most of the time (which was normal for him) and I gave him crust from a sandwich I was eating.

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 n tn 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 f tn * Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body * Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding * Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes * Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination * Sudden, severe headache with no known cause
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 Good nursing care is fundamental in maintaining skin care, feeding, hydration, positioning, and monitoring vital signs such as temperature, pulse, and blood pressure. Stroke rehabilitation begins almost immediately and can last anywhere from a few days to over a year. Complete recovery is unusual but not impossible and most patients will improve to some extent. ref: Rehabilitation and you are the 2 key factors in assissting him. God bless you with patience .
538894 tn?1389310148 About 3 months ago I had a pressure on my left temple, combined w/ confusion, and vision changes, my left arm and hand were tingling/numb as well. I went to the ER thinking I was having a stroke, and they did CT scans of my brain which were normal. The following day I went to a Neurologist who did an office exam and promptly sent me for an MRI of my brain as protocol for MS. The MRI came back w/ no signs of MS and he claimed it was anxiety.
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 n tn The more logical explanation is stroke or epilepsy. A small stroke could certainly do this, as well as a seizure event. Sorry that I am not much help.
Avatar f tn - The first 3 bites are going down BUT I can't control my tongue movements so the food is often pushed too fast at the back of my tongue while I'm still trying to chew it. - Chewing is exhausting and I do feel out of breath easily - The left side of my throat becomes hard as rock (the muscle completely tenses up) - After the 3 first bite I usually feel my throat just closing. Even drinking becomes complicated for at least 30 minutes. - I do feel spasms in my throat from time to time.
Avatar f tn I've been told this could be the source of my kidney atrophy and the reasion I have ESRD. The first date also coincides with an 'Acceptable Risk' stroke I had during a carotid procedure. When I was woken in Recovery, I'm told I was having a difficult time speaking. They then rushed me back into surgery. Since my providers tried to keep me from linking the two, it made me question if other events of that day were as they seemed.
