stroke

Avatar n tn He is currently having problems with hallucinations after an EGD procedure. The hallucinations are still happening. He had the procedure on Tuesday, which was three days ago. Is this normal? If so, when will it dissolve? Thank you for your help!
Avatar f tn Probably not a precursor to a stroke. Research Hypnopompic (?spelling) Hallucinations. Don't worry it's not pyschotic. Could also be migrainous. Doubtful it's a stroke as this would be accompanied by other symptoms which you didn't mention such as headache which wakes you in the middle of the night, loss of consciousness or speach problems. Best wishes, Sincerely, Timothy D. McGarity, M.D.
Avatar f tn I am a 56 year old woman and suffered two bleeding strokes while camping in the mountains, far from help. The first stroke was what I thought was a migraine. The second one two days later was more severe and I called hubby on his cell so he could come in from fishing and drive to the nearest hospital, maybe 50 miles away. THat's the last I remember. I have had many migraines in weeks previous which my doctor had blown off.
Avatar f tn Hi, it’s unlikely its stroke. It could be a bad dream. And everybody has these occasional stressful dreams. But if they occur repeatedly or are interfering with your sleep schedules, you can consult a sleep specialist. It could be a nightmare disorder. This can be assessed by a sleep questionnaire and therapy is based on the severity of symptoms. Best Regards.
Avatar n tn My grandmother, 92, has been having episodes of hallucinations, mostly visual, occasionally auditory. She sees animals, people and relatives she has known, or hears someone out her bedroom window. She lives semi-alone. We live in the front house, her house is in the rear. Her primary care doctor has ruled out stroke and has her on Haldol (5-10 mg.) at bedtime. She is also on Inderol, Isodril, nitro-durm patches and Choline Mag Tristate.

Avatar n tn You say you drive - and hallucinate. Do you not think you should get off the road for your safety and others. I do - life is too precious and you'd possibly be charged with vehicular homicide if someone was killed. I add, your thread back and forth gave light to my father in law's hallucinations after his cist was removed and drained. It was not a stroke but prior to the operation I learned it would resemble a stoke.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms could be due to olfactory hallucinations. Phantosmia most often occurs as a result of a head injury or upper respiratory infection. It can also be caused by temporal lobe seizures, sinusitis, brain tumors, migraine, Parkinson's disease and stroke. You may need proper evaluation by your GP, please consult him for a neurological assessment. He may then refer you to a neurologist if needed. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn but what we are left with is someone who when tired, or emotional overworked, has a persistent headache, slurred speech, aphasia, short term memory loss and what almost seems like episodes of hallucinations accompanied by extreme, instantaneous fatigue. These symptoms are very worrying for we her family, her GP says "old age" and we cant help but wonder is it deficit of a stroke, the begining of Alzheimers or Vascular Dementia, what can we do, where can we go?

Avatar f tn My husband is 44 years old. He suffered from a hemorrhagic stroke on 7/3. He has movement on the left side but it is weak. He can speak, eat, talk. He has one more week of acute rehab left as an inpatient then he will follow-up with out-patient thearpy. The biggest problem I have been having is his mind is not the same. He remembers everyone and everything in the past. However, he adds new experiences that never took place today or in the past. He has hallucinations and paranoia.

Avatar m tn I mentioned stroke, but there are congenital malformations and other etiologies that appear as a “scar”. If it is from a stroke, appropriate stroke management and workup would be necessary. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
