stroke

Avatar n tn Hi- My mother had the same thing happen to her in the hospital, double vision and blurred vision. It turned out to be a build up of her sleeping medication, ambien, that gave her these symptoms.
Avatar n tn He had no previous symptoms of a stroke. The only side effect was double vision. It has been almost two weeks and he still sees double. Are there any other options available besides a patch and prism glasses? Is there a surgery procedure available, or is he just suppose to go on with his life with a patch on his eye, like the nurosurgeon told us?
Avatar n tn How long can be double vision after stroke?
Avatar n tn I am wondering if that is a sign of a stroke coming since I assume that the double vision is caused by the constricting of a blood vessel somewhere which cuts off the oxygen. But thats just my theory. I am going to have a physical soon and talk to the doctor about that. Anyone have any ideas on this symptom?
Avatar n tn I am also reading that cataract surgery may cause double vision. I need some advice on how to proceed. Is there any help for this double vision and would going to an neuro opthamologist help? Thank You.
Avatar f tn i have had double vision in my right eye for about 16 months, it started with a massive vertigo attack, i use the word vertigo lightly! I had lose of feeling in parts of my body with no balance at all,could not even crawl without falling over. being sick, what ever it was it left me with double vision in my right eye. I was ill for about three weeks & lost a stone weight,the funny thing is I can`t remember a lot of what was going on.
Avatar n tn About 5 weeks ago I started having a problem with keeping focus followed by double vision. The double vision was very quick to come on, no previous problems with this. I went to my opthamologist who checked my eyes and found that I need a total of 12 prisms - 6 on each eye to bring me to one image, he suggested I see my family doctor. I saw him the following day, he thought I may have had a stroke, I went for blood work and an CT scan request was made on my behalf.

987242 tn?1335490770 Oh I guess I should mention what brings stroke up. I had a colon resection a couple of wees ago and found I had double vision in my left eye. They ended up referring a neurologist and he checked my reflexes and sent me for an MRI. For reflexes he noted a weak upward movemnt of my big toe? And found evidence of a prior stroke in my MRI. He didn't believe the double vision was a neurological issue and referred me to my eye doctor.
Avatar m tn His speach really started getting worse and his also started complaining about double vision. The double vision only occured when he was laying on his back. When he raised his head the double vision would go away. At that time I asked the nurse to call the neurologist. The nuerologist orderd another MRI. The second MRI came back clean again showing no signs of a stroke. The neurologist stated that he had never seen anything like this and is at a loss.
Avatar m tn 25 mg eye symptoms have improved. some dryness and very little pain.
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 n tn a little double
Avatar n tn Is there a surgery for victims after a stroke that have double victims? Or what are there options beyond wearing a patch over there eyes?
Avatar n tn Double vision is an important symptom to evaluate in a diabetic - double vision that stays when you cover one eye (monocular double vision) may be due to causes like retinal detachment, whereas double vision that does go away when you cover one eye (binocular double vision) can be from a diabetic related lack of blood supply to the nerves controlling the eye muscles. THis is a clinical diagnosis based on the history and examination.
1072301 tn?1255457407 Sent me home definetely panic next day went to an Optologmist and she said the headaches, dizzeness and double vision was because of my left eye and I must have had a mini stroke. Really no definitive answer except your vision will come back went to a Neurologolist. He examined all reflexes and my eyes. He said I had sixth cranial nerve palsy. All my blood tests before then has shown normal Sent to my regular doctor to have more blood tests to double check.
1171739 tn?1265500096 In less than two years it had rectified itself .Well yesterday ehen my husband got out of bed the double vision had reterned ,this time without the squint .He is feeling ok but i am worried about him .Any advice please?
Avatar f tn My mother who is 81yrs old has been suffering from double vision. It helps if she places an eye patch over one eye (not specific). she has had an MRI, has seen an eye specialist but no diagnosis has been made as to cause. She has hypo thyrodism and I believe that this COULD be a cause?? she has given up on the medical expertise as she feels disallusioned. COULD the thyroid be the culprit and if so how can this be rectified? anything you can suggest would be extremely useful.
Avatar n tn He just recently had a double bypass surgery and he currently has very bad double vision. The doctors are not sure exactly what is causing the double vision and thought that it would go away in about 2-3 weeks. It has been about 4 weeks and he is still having double vision. Any ideas on what it might be or what could possibly be done. Thanks. Dear Andy It is possible that a stroke (either from his initial event or from the surgery) is causing his visual problems.
Avatar n tn But then looking to the distance again, and to and fro, I still had double vision problems. After about 3 mins, things were back to normal. I didnt cover each eye to determine if it was one or both. I would some possible causes and how concerned should I be? I called my PCP and he said I should see an opthomologist, but my appt isnt for 2 weeks. some potential causes: 1 The night before, I got little sleep, maybe 4 hours.

Avatar n tn Things which could result in a lesion in the brain which causes double vision include stroke, CNS inflammation, masses, elevated intracranial pressure, and aneurysms. Depending on your age this list would have to be modified. Having an MRI with contrast, and with orbital cuts would be a good starting point. This will help to exclude many of the disorders I mentioned. Lastly, if you are a diabetic, this could be related to your diabetes.
Avatar n tn Dr Rubin makes an excellent suggestion about seeing a neuro-ophthalmologist and I just wanted to add that these doctors can primarily be found at large academic health centers; it would be best to inquire at your closest one.
