If prescription medications do not help, try complementary and alternative medicine. Biofeedback therapy, self-hypnosis and acupuncture have shown positive results to headache sufferers. Take care and best regards.
Avatar n tn Hi, did you developed the symptoms after stopping therapy with tizanidine or during tratment with tizanadine. Your symptoms are suggestive of hypertonia which is one of the withdrawl symptoms with this medicine as this drug may produce dependence. Tizanadine is muscle relaxant, acting at the level of brain and usually given in cases of back pain, spasms etc. It is unlikely to have stroke with this drug. But its withdrawl can cause muscle spasm or hypertonia.

Avatar n tn If she's showing no other signs/symptoms then I wouldn't be too concerned about a stroke.. Other symptoms are head tilt, turning the wrong way when called, lethargy, vision and balance problems, incontinence, and more.. Does she have any underlying conditions that you know of? ie kidney or heart disease, diabetes, thyroid issues, recent head trauma, high blood pressure all increase risk of strokes. I would be more concerned about Lymes disease..
Avatar f tn Strokes can be ischemic or hemorrhagic. Was there a hemorrhage? what was the cause for the stroke? His symptoms are progressive, treatment of hemorrhagic stroke focuses on controlling the bleeding and reducing the pressure on the brain. Sometimes surgical interventions may be needed to control the bleeding. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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 I just wanted to add, that you know your body better than anyone else and if it was a TIA/Mini Stroke, those are temporary and usually do not show up on x-rays but people that do have TIA's have something like a 30% chance of having another TIA or actually stroke within the following year. So you really need to be aware of stroke symptoms and if you get any of these symptoms you need to go straight to the ER.

1474856 tn?1288292649 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 What is the probability that this is an undetected small brainstem stroke? What other test do you recommend to rule out brainstem stroke? I do not have high blood pressure but do have borderline cholesterol for which i take a daily baby aspirin. When I exercise, my parasthesia becomes more intense. Should I continue exercising?
Avatar m tn Hi, These symptoms could be due to heat exhaustion and dehydration because symptoms of heat stroke are quite severe and long lasting. I would suggest you to wear a hat when venturing out in the sun and drink plenty of water to avoid this from happening again. Take care!
464054 tn?1223826633 Among women who were later treated for stroke, the study showed that many of them reported symptoms that were different from the typical stroke symptoms. Aside from the classic stroke symptoms, a woman may have: loss of consciousness or fainting, shortness of breath, falls or accidents, sudden pain in the face, chest, arms or legs, seizure, sudden hiccups, sudden nausea, sudden tiredness, and sudden palpitations.

Avatar n tn MY NAME IS CYNDI. I AM 35 AND A MOTHER OF 3. MY YOUNGEST IS 10 MONTHS OLD. SHORTLY AFTER GIVING BIRTH TO MY YOUNGEST CHILD, I HAD 2 EPISODES OF "VERTIGO". THE ENTIRE ROOM TURNED OVER SIDEWAYS AND THEN BACK AGAIN WITHIN A COUPLE OF SECONDS. AFTER THE SECOND TIME, I WENT TO MY DOCTOR'S OFFICE AND WAS SEEN BY ONE OF THE PHYSICIAN'S ASSISTANTS. SHE CHECKED MY BLOOD PRESSURE AND BLOOD SUGAR. SHE CHECKED MY EYES AND EARS AND MADE ME PERFORM "DUI" TYPES OF TESTS.

Avatar m tn Hello my symptoms started two months ago, I was in a passenger seat of a vehicle and was smoking canabis. I noticed my blood pressure seemed high and I was talking really fast and I felt a burst in my head followed by a thunderclap like headache. I thought I was going to die my mouth was very dry and couldn't swallow. Ever since then I have all kinds of symptoms, stiffness of neck, dialated pupils, blood shot eyes, weakness and very fatigue. I also noticed a sharp pain in the left of my neck.
Avatar n tn Hello Dear, You probably have hemiplegic migraine where , the symptoms are indicative of vascular disease and can be thought to be stroke. Migraine-specific abortives, the triptans and ergotamines, are currently contraindicated in the treatment of Hemiplegic Migraine because of their vasoconstrictive properties and concerns about stroke You should consult your physician and monitor your blood pressure for there may be chancec of hypertension with migraine.

1438751 tn?1285093678 About 4 months ago my son and I were cooking dinner and I got some pressure in my eyes and between above my nose... I got a little disoriented and lightheaded and leaned on the counter.... then I couldn't move the whole right side of my body for a few minuets... I don't know how long but I was so freaked out... I started thinking of what my mom said ABC's and that commercial about not being able to brush my own hair so I got as calm as I could and tried as hard as I could to move...
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 n tn To be frank there is no technique for restoring vision loss after a stroke. Most such vision loss is bilateral, affecting both eyes and tends to involve the peripheral vision more than the central vision. There may be some improvement spontaneously over the 4 to 6 month period following a stroke but it is usually precious little when accurately measured. Most 'improvement' comes from adaptation and adjustment on the part of the patient.
233915 tn?1218816727 Your daughter may have migraines, but the fact that she has had one stroke would make me worry about why that happened and why she is having neurological symptoms. Basically, your doctor may end up being right, but I think you may want to get second and third opinions first. At the very least your daughter should be tested for a PFO (paten foramen ovale) which is a small hole in the heart that causes many pediatric strokes and be tested for blood clotting disorders.
Avatar n tn The neurologist thinks these headaches are migraines and not related to the stroke, but he also says that the headache symptoms she describes are not typical in migraines. Could her headaches and cerebellum stroke be related also? I'm concerned that the doctor is being too quick to assume the stroke occured before birth when he also says that an MRI can NOT show the age of a stroke.
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.
