Avatar n tn Recently I had travelled to an early morning meeting and I noticed while driving there my ability to read the traffic signs and business signs were gone. I tried to pronounce words longer than the four letters in a stop sign and it was as if I forgot the sounds most letters had made. leaving me unable to read. I was travelling with a headache and once I had made my destination I felt very disoriented in conversation. Could I have had a stroke??? Please advise asap. Thank-You very much!
Avatar n tn I went to the ER and was dx. with sinutis. I had CT and chest X-ray with lab work all came back normal. My question is the signs for sinutis infections are the signs that I had was wrong dx.

Avatar n tn He says that his entire left side, arm and leg go numb and very weak. He suffers from chronic headaches and takes Tylenol like candy. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? He is the kind of person that doesn't go to the doctor unless he feels that he is scared. When he was diagnosed with vertigo, let me tell you, he scared me to death. He asked me to take him to the ER! The last time he went to a dr.

Avatar n tn My mother is recovering from her 2nd TIA which occured 5 wks ago and the only obvious signs of her attack were short term memory loss until a few days ago. She has started comlaining about an excessive dry mouth, thirst and constant trips to the ladies. Along with these symptons she is experiencing shaking periods where her whole body shakes for around 45mins then it subsides and she feels normal again. The thirst increases prior to and during these attacks. Blood tests have come back normal.
Avatar m tn The MRI showed no signs of a stroke and no damage to the brain. The nuerologist simply said he had symptoms of a stroke but the MRI didn't conclusively show anything. He simply said they would treat it as a stroke because he didn;t have any answers as to what was really going on. Lather that night, my dad stated that the pins and needles were getting worse in his hand and feet as well as up his right arm.

1474856 tn?1288289049 trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system. I may need to go outside of the network to get "real" treatment, not just some Dr calling me crazy and saying my depression is an issue.
