stroke

Avatar f tn Thinking I had a stroke or anurysm or something.
Avatar n tn Yes dogs can have strokes, but it is rare. 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.
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.

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 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.
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 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 She has been taking medication for stroke ever since. Within the last two days she has been experiencing stroke symptoms again. Her eye sight in her left eye is every blurry (she can see figures but extremely blurry she says. Her motor skills on her left side are deteriorating, her left arm and leg hurt. She walked perfectly fine after the stroke, but now this morning she said her left leg gave out on her morning walk to the park.
Avatar n tn things have been fine until recently I have had trouble with my eyes. I have trouble focusing especially if my eyes are tired. Some times they are fine. It is almost impossible to see the computer with both eyes open. Do I need to go to an eye doctor, or a neurologist or is there anything that will help? I thought it weird that my eyes were fine after the stroke but now they are getting worse.
Avatar f tn Tired. Body aches.
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 n tn My diebetic 71 yr.sister has had stroke. Now her eyes are both dilated. Can this be from the stroke?
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 f tn You may have amaurosis fugax (pre stroke). Please see an ophthalmologist and he may refer you to a cardiologist for a carotid ultrasound. Dr. O.

Avatar n tn I read a letter from a daughter whose mother had stroke like symptoms. My mother has also experienced stroke like symptoms and no one can seem to find out what is wrong.
Avatar n tn My symptoms lasted about 7 months. Then as mysteriously as they appeared they disappeared til last week when they all started again. I have the same stiffness in my right foot and tremors in my hands, legs and eyelids. Weakness in my left forearm and hand. Numbness in my back and shooting pains on the bottom of my feet and fingertips. My voice is raspy for no apparent reason. My vision is blurry. What could be causing all this and what kind of specialist should I be seeing.
