stroke

Avatar n tn It is good that her blood pressure and tests done were fine. Stroke symptoms typically start suddenly and in most cases do not progress. This could indeed be age-related, but if it persists, you may need to have this checked for proper management. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), hypertension (high blood pressure), seizure activity, heart problems are all symptoms of stroke in cats.
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.
633670 tn?1389227011 I know that Omega 3 fatty acid can be a useful supplement for cats that have had stroke. There isn't a lot of information out there, but I am going to go ahead and include a link to a site that seems useful. http://www.petwave.com/Cats/Cat-Health-Center/Brain-Spinal-Cord-Nerve-Disorders/Stroke/Treatment-and-Care/Living-and-Managing/Living-With-a-Cat-That-Has-Had-a-Stroke.aspx Much luck. Let us know how it goes, ok?
Avatar n tn I got fired from my last job for the seizure disorder. I had been forcasting typhoons for nearly 20 years and now I changed career fields. I was feeling it was time for a change. Now I am on a disability sort of work deal with another company doing clerical work. I know what you mean about being worried about your job. I always worry about it because I am still on the probationary period and with no job I can't pay my bills.
Avatar n tn I too had a stroke when I was 29...2 weeks after I gave birth to my son...That was 4 1/2 years ago. I have been fine ever since,even though my corotid arteries are still occluded. I had a bilateral corotid dissection. I would also like to have more kids and my doctors THINK it should be ok, but there are no guarantees!!
Avatar f tn My 17 yr. old male cat starting showing some strange symptoms recently, and rather suddenly. He stopped going up and down stairs, stopped getting on the furniture, seems to have weakness or lack of coordination in his hind legs, paces, does not meow, purr or groom. We took him to the vet and after an examination the vet felt he had high blood pressure and that he appeared blind. She could not get his eyes to respond to light. She put him on medication and took blood and urine samples.

Avatar n tn I started years ago with neck problems. (neck hurt went to chiropractor) After the birth of my second child, I had stroke like symptoms on my left side. I kept having different symptoms that fit MS. The first MRI was normal but dr. said that it was early and might not show up yet. I have been treated for MS all this time. In the past few years, I have been getting paralyzed on/off when I lay on the back of my head.
Avatar n tn I suggest to all three of you to insist that test be done. I went for years with symptoms that could of been treated sooner before my disks became a major problem. If disks are bugling and they aren't treated, they can herniate and all hell can happen. If you have neuro symptoms that are not getting better in a few eeks, INSIST on tests. Keep a log of everything you experience and when and were you experience them and share this with your MDs.
Avatar f tn I am on treatment, for the above confirmed illnesses, but ive been told that the stroke type symptoms are due to stress and called functional symptoms and I have been recommended for psychotherapy,but will not be allowed down this road until my depressions stabilises. My grown up children, aged 30, 24 and 21 and myself and wife are getting exccedingly worried, as I am having more of these episodes especially over the last 8-10months.
Avatar n tn In fact a number of mechanisms can result in the onset of the syndrome and are responsible for the variety of symptoms. Consequently, patients may experience any number of symptoms, which often mislead physicians and necessitate the use of other data such as radiological findings to confirm the diagnosis. Both physicians (head and neck, oral and maxillofacial surgeons) and dentists must have a high index of suspicion for this clinical entity.
Avatar m tn Little over 5 years ago the day my daughter was born at the hospital it all started again, I started having ibs, panic attacks, aches and pains in my legs, arms, neck that lasted weeks to month, most all of these would come and go within a week. These symptoms were off and on for a few years and then would stop for awhile. About 4 years ago I started having muscle twitching in my calves, fingers and eye.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar m tn Ultimately my only actual exercise besides therapy was walking to places like the restroom and to the car for my doctor appointments. I developed massive swelling in my right ankle, not my leg though, only the ankle, and any weight bearing was almost intolerable. I didn't have any notable trauma, besides the mechanism that injured my back and that was quite a while before the ankle thing sprung up.
867582 tn?1311630997 Hi all, I was trying to provoke lupus symptoms for my ANA test by tanning, having a couple of drops of cats claw, having a fruit drink with 1200 mg vitamin C, eating spicy meat, and sugary brownies. I last tanned for 7 minutes the day before yesterday. Well, I did provoke something that showed up suddenly yesterday (after having two nights of chest pain). It was horrible!! Felt like I was going to have a stroke - nauseous, headache, weak, fatigued, but the worst part was the eye pain!!

1448936 tn?1363209946 A helpful tip for anyone with health anxiety, is to simply not looking up symptoms for diseases online (I know this is really hard to avoid). If you are sick, go see a doctor! Please do not self diagnose, one real symptom may just lead you to imagine other symptoms of a specific disease. Sometimes, ignorance really is bliss. Health anxiety is a pain and this is my first time sharing this with anyone. Feel free to reply to reassure me of anything! =P and share your own story.
2186126 tn?1384961026 My dog is 15, and doing okay right now for her age, but I know at anytime something can come up. We also have 7 old cats, and one of them was just diagnosed with heart disease. They give you so much pleasure and love, but it is so hard in the end. I wish you luck with helping Sasha, shes a lucky dog to be so loved.
Avatar f tn She has a history of hiding increasing health problems until ending up in the hospital, which is why I just watch her for symptoms. I just feel kind of lost in this neverending situation, not knowing if she is really getting worse slowly or currently holding her own. I do know that eventually the disease will reach a point that causes her to be noticeably struggling and more dependent.
Avatar n tn I'm still in the process of being tested for my symptoms. For the past 3 months now, I feel very tired. My nose and ears and somewhat stuffed up and I have trouble breathing. I feel like like I have to always clear my throat to get enough air in. I take deap breaths in to get more oxygen and I sometimes get dizzy spells and I feel like I have some nasal drainage happening into my throat. I have had tests done on my lungs, heart, broncial area, CT Scan and allergy tests done.
Avatar f tn I'd started seeing him in march with a list of various symptoms I'd had for varying lengths of time and being my first visit only a couple were pursued, namely my respiratory issues, chronic constipation and chest pain. All 3 had gone on for many years, the chest pain as far back as age 14.
Avatar m tn Like I say, though, I've trauled the internet for my specific symptoms, and nothing really comes to light, and my retinolagists says there's nothing he can see (though i would have prefered an angiogram, just to make sure). Oh well.
691463 tn?1227422654 we have an elderly cat of 17, he is suddenely much more lethargic than usual, as if in a daze and drooling heavily, we wonder if he may have had a stroke, he experienced something like a seizure couple of weeks ago.
Avatar n tn Now that i am 24 i have reacted to some peoples cats and i owned a cat about 9 years ago with no problems. My symptoms will include itchy eyes, runny noes and sneezing, burning itch on sensitive areas like my face and neck if i touch them. Also i have asthma symptoms like shortness of breath and wheezing after exposure for more than 10 min. Do allergies change with age, and what exactly am i allergic to from these pets?
Avatar n tn Option 2 - call your vet, you usually get their receptionist. Tell the receptionist about your cat's symptoms. These symptoms would be concerning to me ask them what they recommend based on your cat's symptoms. Good luck finding out what's going on with your kitty.
Avatar n tn Thank you so much for the information, I will keep an eye on her. If it is a stroke, is there other signs I should look for? Thank you again for responding. I've been freaking out. I will get her to a vet ASAP.
Avatar n tn She was given vallim which didn't calm her down and then was given morphine. She was in a deep sleep with no reponse for 8 days. When she awoke it was for about 1 1/2 days. Then she had a heart attack and stroke. She had heart surgery and her heart doctor has dismissed her but she is back into her deep sleep. They have done several MRIs, CATs, EEGs, ultrasounds looking for blood clots. The doctors have tried different seizure medicines in case she's having seizures.
Avatar n tn When we went outside this morning, we found one of our outdoor cats just sitting outside in the cold for some reason (it got down to just under 20 degrees F overnight although it might've gotten just a little colder than that with wind chill), and he didn't look very good, he was just kind of sitting there and swaying back and forth very slightly, so we went outside to take a look at him and see if he'd been hit on the highway or anything, but there appears to be no cuts or scratches on him, he
Avatar n tn I googled *Tia* and see this is like a prelude to a stroke. I don't think anyone here would be able to tell you for sure what's going on with your girl. We are just members like yourself. Could have been a seizure, I suppose, but hard to say. Try not to panic until you know what's wrong. Oh, and be sure to syringe some food and water if she's not eating. Please let us know the outcome and how your girl is doing tomorrow. Good luck!
