Stroke symptoms and signs

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms and signs


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.

They say to call an ambulance. 75% of people are not aware of stroke symptoms, so that could account for far more disability than would be otherwise. And be aware of those around you whose judgment can be impaired. I as well a friend of mine thought nothing was wrong even though we couldn't talk and were initially paralyzed.
Avatar n tn I've had an intermittent tingling in my ear and on my face for several days. It lasts 20-30 seconds though it sometimes turns to mild pain and also sometimes includes my jaw and cheekbone. It's mostly on the right side of my face, though I've felt some on the left side as well. I've seen two doctors who couldn't identify it. I have no other symptoms. No headache, nausea, muscle weakness, bels palsy or any of the other signs of stroke. I'm 38 and otherwise healthy.
Avatar n tn There are two peaks of developing a stroke infancy and old age. It is a good sign that your baby is not exhibiting any symptoms of stroke.

Avatar n tn There would not be any evidence of stroke in her bloodwork. Who told you that? You look at the signs and symptoms. Not the darned bloodwork and MRI. I would have had your internists licence...well I'll stop...let's just say he was working abiove his pay grade and should have referred you to a stroke center instantly. Who told you "there is no evidence of stroke"? Obviously he recieved medical training in lower Ghana, and served in internship in Nigeria.
Avatar f tn in the sense of symptoms of a stroke and stroke warning as signs of a pathology that could lead eventually to a stroke. the only way that could indicate higher risk of stroke is that it was caused by a vascular problem, but you should have a bit more going on I guess. it also depends on your age. maybe it was caused by sudden sun exposure. why are you worried about having a stroke, do you have other symptoms? is there someone in your family who's had a stroke?
Avatar n tn I agree with your concern over these symptoms- this sounds like signs of a stroke to me however, I'm not a doctor, so don't take that as it's what is happening. I'd really recommend that you call your doctor and talk to them right away about these symptoms. If you can't get a hold of them, it doesn't hurt to get to the ER- especially if it could be a possible stroke.
Avatar n tn d like to see a big publicity campaign on TV advising people what the general symptoms of stroke are and what you should do about it.

Avatar n tn A women is having symptoms of a stroke but test come back negative of no stroke, what is the cause of the stroke symptoms?
Avatar m tn It is so frustrating when it does not show up on your MRI and one place tells you possible mini stroke and you go the next time and they transfer you to a different hospital and they do test afterwards and then say it's not a mini stroke because there is no evidence on the test so it must be symptomatic or stress. I am not stressed and i had one of the best days of the month when this happened.
