207091 tn?1337713093 Hi, I'm not really sure what the symptoms could be, but I honestly don't think it's seizures or a stroke. Seizures you would've noticed twitching and loss of bowel or urinary control. A stroke would've affected one side of the body only, and she wouldn't have recovered so quickly. This could be a thyroid problem, or diabetes. You can try taking her food away for 6-8 hrs so she'll be ready to get tested for diabetes as soon as you get to the vet's office.
645800 tn?1466864555 It was by talking to my shrink about my symptoms that the VA got me in to see a neurologist right away. I suspect that is also why they sent me to Vanderbilt when the Neuro at the VA could not figure out what is going on. There is probably some note somewhere in my file about my shrink saying I needed to get this figured out. :) I am hoping that my new shrink ( another of the flaws with the VA) will be as good as the last one.
Avatar n tn I had a stroke on 7/2/05 later was changed to TIA but I have had symptoms like a stroke. Weakness on the right side, kept falling had 2 mo outpatient rehab. All my tests are clear and my neurologist basically told me it is in my head. We believe it was brought on my A-Typical Migrains. I continue to have these head aches at least twice a week. Have been to Er 3 times in the last 6 weeks with some that have lasted over 2 days. Should we be looking for a different cause?
162069 tn?1224681011 Can you call the doctor and mention these readings? I worry about a stroke or whatever happens with such high pressure. Be sure to find out from her first if she has any other symptoms when this happens and how long does it stay that high. The doctor will probably want to know.
Avatar f tn I was put in a steroid IV and a steroid taper for when I went home. The symptoms waned, though I was left with some fatigue and emotional changes (which were helped with an anti-depressant my doctor prescribed me). The neurologist I saw called it a Clinically Isolated Symptom and was hesitant to say I have MS since this was my first attack. However, my general practitioner told me that, with what he saw in my hospital chart, that he was going to treat me as if I have MS. Fast forward to now.
98474 tn?1240108874 Hi Cynde, I've been in limboland for years and it gets to be a really scary place sometimes. It really stinks to feel your symptoms worsening and not have that dx. Knowing there are meds out here that could slow down the progress if we only had a dx, is also quite frustrating. Hang in there, you are not alone, there's lots of us here going through the same thing. If you aren't happy with your dr maybe it's time to find one that will work harder to get you a dx.
Avatar n tn Mamino, my grandmother had a stroke and her symptoms are very similar to the ones that you spoke about. I was wondering if you could update me on the current status of stroke recovery. Again my grandmother's symptoms are almost identical (no alertness/consciousness, can move all limbs, etc...). I'm hoping you get this.
Avatar n tn I had mine inserted this past Feb. I just started having the exact same symptoms. I am going to take a hpt. Let me know if you find out whats causing your problems.
Avatar f tn B) Did they do an MRA/MRV to look at the blood vessels in your head after you had the stroke like symptoms you described above? C) Did they do a doppler study of the carotid arteries in your neck? You mentioned your GP doubled your BP meds. D) Did he/she run a plasma free metanephrines test to rule out a pheochromocytoma (rare, catecholamine emitting tumor, which can cause high spikes in blood pressure)? E) Have you seen a cardiologist for testing beyond an EKG done in the ER?
Avatar n tn You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
Avatar f tn I also keep a diary of every event, what type, time, duration, symptoms, food involvement, activity, and other categories. I chart these things for a couple of reasons. 1) I want to track down anything that even appears to exacerbate any symptoms so that I can alleviate it; 2) I want to visualize not only those categories, but the time of year, what type of allergens are about, pollution level, weather, and similar information.
Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
459853 tn?1283144114 I would like to send you a symptom comparrison chart that I made up. It compares the symptoms of Fibro, CFIDs, Lupus, Vit D deficiency and MS. Go to my site on med help and send me a message giving me you e-mail address and I would be happy to send it in an attachment. It's amazing how close all of these conditions are in symptoms.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn I cant see with both eyes working together as a 'team' but I can see out of one - but only if one is patched (and of course reading an eye chart required you to cover one eye ----- BUT my report in my chart says vision is 20/20 - Im 'complaining of issues' but All is Normal - will review in 12 months - duh! I want help NOW - Keep on digging! The net is a great way to get good info.
307874 tn?1242759398 I have had all the tests for stroke and went to see cardiologist and he ruled out stroke. All my tests were normal. I just feel so frustrated at not finding an answer and it is hard to accept a stroke when I know it is not! My neuro wsent me to the specialist to rule out ms versus clinically isolated syndrome so I guess ....
Avatar n tn I am a 41 year old male in good health overall. I don't smoke and rarely drink alcohol. I was diagnosed with a left bundle branch block several years ago (no treatment required at this time), and have borderline/high cholesterol. I may start to take Lipitor in the near future. About 10 years ago, I had thyroiditis, but the TSH levels returned to normal shortly thereafter, with no further treatment.
Avatar n tn Yes you can catch Bells Palsy more than once. One difference is using something sharp give it a poke if you can feel it It's Bells Palsy. I had it once when I was 16 . It changed my looks forever. Even now When Doctors see it on my chart they look at me and say "They see it". Thankfully it wasn't a stroke. Something puts pressure on a nerve and there it is.
Avatar n tn He doesn't get nauseas or have any other symptoms. Can you please help us in any way ? I would so appreciate it.
Avatar n tn Visual symptoms, one sided body numbness, confusion, photophobia and headache are characteristic symptoms of migraine headache but these can also be symptoms of stroke so it becomes important to do some further testing and neurological exam to rule out stroke. There are other medications available for migraine like Imitrex, Topamax etc which provide a good control over migraine. Please discuss these with your treating doctor. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hi Grace, I'm thinking you're doing okay the way it's going but you really should be doing this under you prescriber's care. Your doctor has your chart with all your vital numbers, he/she would know the answer to your stroke or heart attack risk. If you're in good shape with the BP and cholesterol dangers the withdrawal symptoms aren't very comfortable but they won't kill you. The WD symptoms will spike for a couple more days and then you'll start to swing towards feeling better.
Avatar n tn I have been having subtle pain in the right shoulder, trapezius muscle, and latissimus dorsi muscle area(i saw a muscle chart, i didn't know of another way to explain the location of the pain, i just googled muscle names and that is about where the pain is.). I went to a local chiropractor and he took an xray. he said my neck was out of alignment. he adjusted my neck both ways and he also adjusted my back. It popped on one side and not the other.
Avatar f tn I know the signs of a stroke and felt fine other than the tingling. I ignored it for a while until the tingling moved into my upper arm. So I decided to go to urgent care justbto he safe. They sent me to the ER to rule out a stroke. So in the mean time the tingling started randomly in different places my feet, my arms, my back, all on the right side at first but later moved to the left side.
Avatar f tn v. warning us of the symptoms of stroke so that we can medical help asap. It now transpires those exact same symptoms also relate to migraine. Incredible !
Avatar n tn For over six months, I have had blurred vision in my left eye on a daily basis. I have a history of classic migraine with aura, and I have noticed that it appears to get really really worse with conventional migraine triggers - red wine, too much or too little caffeine, etc. Other symptoms also, including dizziness, "drunk" feeling, occasional confusion, some intermittent weakness, but the most prominent symptom is visual. It is rarely painful, though there is pressure at times.
Avatar m tn The one-sided nature of your symptoms is interesting. Take a look at the discussion and animation at this website and see if any of it looks familiar to you: http://www.knownjohnson.com/?
Avatar f tn It could also be benign intracranial hypertension, where many of the symptoms you are suffering from are seen. It could also be TIA or transient ischemic attack wherein the blood supply to brain is temporarily cut off. The episodes last for a maximum of 24 hours and then resolve or a new symptom starts. To diagnose this you need a prompt evaluation (within 60 minutes) to identify the cause and determine appropriate therapy. CAT Scans done later or when you are fine will not reveal anything.
Avatar m tn At the age of 45, I was recently diagnosed with A-fib. I have no symptoms (was discovered while taking a simple life insurance physical exam -- didn't even know I had it) and am in good health otherwise. My cardiologist put me on daily Aspirin and then said "see you next year" after some blood work and checking for some other underlying reasons (which were not found). He stated I probably have Lone A-Fib caused or exacerbated by stress (which I've had a ton of the last 3 years).
Avatar f tn Symptoms and signs of Zika virus infection Approximately one person in five who becomes infected with Zika virus is likely to have symptoms.
Avatar n tn Personally, I think your dr is proceeding in a logical manner. Since you described symptoms being on one side, the dr probably needed to first rule out a stroke. I’m sorry you have to go through yet another CT Scan (that’s strange they missed the very side you’re having issues with (?)). I had a parathyroid tumor and can vaguely recall some of the symptoms you describe, but they weren’t my most prominent ones. On the other hand, anything’s possible.
