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 n tn htm The Whisperings of Ovarian Cancer by Laura Dolson A year after his wife, Gilda Radner, died of ovarian cancer, Gene Wilder appeared on TV to alert women about the early warning signs of the disease.

Avatar n tn im having signs & symptom of a possible stroke but im just 17 is it likely i might have a stroke ?
350555 tn?1196587877 Well, I feel like I have symptoms of a stroke. Today my left side of my face and my left hand and fingers feel like they are tingling. More like pins and needles. I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....
Avatar n tn If your cycles are short by a couple of days, it would be around day 12 of your cycle or if it is long say 30 days long, it would be around day 16. Around cycle day (CD) 8 or 9, I start watching for signs. You can use ovulation predictor kits or watch your cervical mucus (CM) which will get sticky and clear like egg whites just before ovulation. I also check my cervix which sounds weird but is a great indicator if you check it every month and know how your cervix works.
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 m tn What I would be worried about is stroke. Can she talk normally? Is she confused? If you ask her to repeat a sentence does she slur her words or does it sound normal? Does she have a bad headache? Can she lift the arm that is numb? If she can't talk normally or can't lift her arm and so forth then she may be having a stroke and you have to take her into the Emergency Room right away. Diabetes can increase her risk for a stroke as well and also peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage.
Avatar m tn Sept 19th, went to ER. right side was numb, could not feel or move right side, (leg, arm, right side of face), speech was messed up, memory and comprehesion was messed. would guess it was a 60% lost. They did an MRI, said they didn't see any signs of a stroke. Said it was a complicated migrane. sent me home next day. put me in outpatient therapy to walk again. Dec 3rd. Same thing, but worse, took out 100%. said stroke didn't show on mri. put me rehab center for 5 weeks.
