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....

4418279 tn?1354277370 Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Aside central neurological causes, possibilities that may need to be considered include epilepsy, neuro-muscular causes such as neuropathies, myopathies, muscle degeneration, infections affecting the neuromuscular system, micronutrient deficiencies, heavy metal poisoning etc.
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
Avatar m tn m posting here today because i am very worried about someone that i know that had stroke like symptoms but the doctors believe it was no a stroke but a brain cramp.

Avatar n tn Depending on the area of the brain affected and the severity of the stroke, it is possible for a stroke to cause the symptoms described above without any evidence of paralysis of extremities. Has an MRI or CT scan been performed? It might be advisable to consult a neurologist to assess her condition and possibly have her undergo brain imaging.
Avatar f tn Thinking I had a stroke or anurysm or something.
1474856 tn?1288289049 numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; 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.
Avatar n tn You might also be on a blood control medication that is a calcium channel blocker, which ocasionally causes these symptoms. Have you had a blood work-up and your hematocrit checked lately? This could cause light-headedness. Sometimes a stroke patient is placed on coumadin, which exacerbates hemorhoids. The rectal bleeding can dramatically decrease the red blood cell count in a relatively short period of time.
Avatar f tn However, patients of this age can still and do have TIAs and strokes. In this age group, causes of stroke can include vascular malformations (such as AVMs or cavernous angiomas), emboli from the heart, a hypercoagulable state (a tendency to form clots), oral contraceptives, vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels in the brain), certain metabolic disorders etc.
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
Avatar n tn How does she know the difference between the seizure and another stroke? Symptoms seem to be very similar. Do you think the Volteren caused the stroke? She does not smoke and is not on birth control so very confused as to why she would have a stroke at age 34. Our family does not have history of strokes. Would appreciate any info that could help us to understand.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed 18 months ago with mild ocular myasthenia gravis. I had ptosis (primarily left eye) and occasional double vision when I was tired. I took mestanon and in general felt pretty normal until last January. It started with parathesia of my left arm which was quite intense but I could generally make it stop by raising my arm and shaking it, elevating my arm, or twisting it. I went to my regular doc since I thought I might be having a stroke.
Avatar f tn My mother has a history of stroke and mitral stenosis. She now has a mitral valve replacement/St. Jude valve. She was told years ago by her neurologist not to take anything containing pseudoephedrine or any decongestants. When she has sinus pressure or congestion she just has to suffer. She has tried Mucinex, Zyrtec and Saline nasal spray but no relief.
Avatar n tn On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
Avatar f tn That is where you should be with odd symptoms like that. No one can tell you if it is a stroke or not until you've had the proper medical tests...I would think any kind of sudden numbness would be an emergency and possibly serious stuff like stroke or MS.
Avatar f tn I had what they call a stroke - it was caused by burst aneurisms in my brain. It took 9 surgeries and finally a shunt in my head. That was September. What I want to know is, is it 'normal' to feel pressure and sometimes a 'giddy' feeling? Apparently my brain will take at least a year to 'heal'. I am doing really well, but my head feels this way, and my neck where the shunt tube goes swells..
Avatar m tn I am a 21 year old female and have experienced a sudden onset of symptoms. The tips of my second toes on both feet went numb one evening. Over the next couple of days the left side of my body went numb. The numbness increases and decreases in strength at random times. I feel pins and needles randomly all over my body. The numbness is on my face as well, associated with a dull pain specifically by my jaw. I have seen several doctors over the past two weeks and had many tests done.
