stroke

Avatar n tn (from strokassociation.org - but also applies to pets) Also called TIAs, transient ischemic attacks are minor or warning strokes. In a TIA, conditions indicative of an ischemic stroke are present and the typical stroke warning signs develop. However, the obstruction (blood clot) occurs for a short time and tends to resolve itself through normal mechanisms. Even though the symptoms disappear after a short time, TIAs are strong indicators of a possible major stroke.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.
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 m not sure how long she was unconscious but when she came round she was paralysed on the left hand side, was unable to speak and had swollen eyes. She was kept in overnight but a stroke was dismissed at the outset. The next morning her symptoms were the same and there was no improvement within 24 hours. The doctors then said they were worried she may have had a stroke and ordered an MRI scan which fortunately revealed no abnormality or reason for her symptoms. She is 40 and generally well.

Avatar f tn With medical research advances, what is the latest information regarding the causes of migraine with aura. Are sufferers more likely to suffer from a stroke. The symptoms of a migraine are very similar to stroke symptoms - visual disturbances, facial numbness, pins and needles in fingers and hands, speech impediment?
Avatar f tn Sorry to hear about your stroke :( I don't have vision deficits, so I don't know what that is like. However all our strokes are different, leaving us with different deficits. Rather than focus of how "odd" it may seem to someone else, I would suggest is discussing with your doctor(s) possible therapies for your vision.
595451 tn?1224099468 Sometimes stroke symptoms can manifest as MS, and vice versa, because it's damage to the brain that causes the symptoms. My first documented flare was very much like that - I felt drunk all the time, dizzy, off balance, weak, exhausted, twitchy, and found it very hard to talk coherently. Nystagmus and optic neuritis made it hard to see. I was having repeated throat spasms, and having trouble swallowing. I improved almost immediately on an oral course of steroids - Prednisone.

Avatar n tn Since May, I've had several "ghosting" problems in low-light conditions or anything with high contrast on low contrast (e.g. white letters on a black TV screen). For example, if I look at the monitor light in the dark, the light has a faint duplicate "ghost" right above it. I've uploaded several crude examples to help illustrate my point. This first image shows an LED light on an appliance. In bright light, the ghosting is absent or minimal.

Avatar m tn Hi my grandma had a stroke Saturday. We are not sure when she had it but we think it was 18hrs before we found her. She had scans done on her brain and they said she had a massive stroke and brain bleed. When we found her she was breathing on her own and had a heart beat but wasn't responsive, she is still like that today. The doctors say she has less than 5% chance of surviving and not to revive her if she has a heart attack as she will end up with no quality of life.

Avatar n tn Stroke symptoms typically develop rapidly (seconds to minutes). Pre-hospital care professionals will typically want to identify stroke risk very rapidly.
Avatar f tn last year I was experiencing slight dizziness with a weird almost jumpy/falling sensation in my head/eyes when I turned my head. I went to the neurologist and they did an MRI. It came back abnormal and a few months and lots of tests later, the neurologist seems to think I had a small stroke. since then I have good and bad days. I seem to have "episodes" of dizziness (the room doesn't spin, its more of a drunk off balance feeling.
Avatar m tn In general, migraine disorder can cause associated visual and eye symptoms. Typically, a migraine with aura is described as visual symptoms (rather than eye symptoms) such as flashing lights or loss of peripheral vision in one eye followed by a headache. While your eye symptoms are atypical (in the sense that your actual eye is uncomfortable rather than your vision), it is still possible this could be migrainous.
