Avatar m tn Like if an area of the brain is affected, it causes certain results peripherally. In the absence of this, it is difficult to say that the symptoms are due to TIA or stroke. Many times with TIAs the imaging studies do not pick up any positive findings. If your symptoms persist or recur consult your doctor. Regards.

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 f tn Lastly, transient one-sided body numbness (lasting for example for minutes up to 30 minutes then resolving) could be due to a migraine (the aura of migraine, in which case following the numbness, a headache occurs) or seizures (which would be important to evaluate given the prior stroke history). These are a few causes of one-sided numbness (excluding focal hand numbness, which could be something called carpal tunnel syndrome, for example).
Avatar n tn Usually, these infarcts occur due to occlusion of brain arteries and results into stroke. Therefore, this may be associated with headache, numbness and paralysis like symptoms. Unfortunately, rehabilitation is the only effective way to help the patient regain function to the possible extent and prevent from permanent losses. If rehabilitation program is appropriately instituted, most of the stroke patients can regain maximum functions with appropriate therapy, training and support services.

Avatar n tn Migraine is usually preceded by n aura which is what you experienced. Sometimes aura may not be followed by a headache. Migraine is often confused with stroke. For sinusitis i suggest you take steam inhalation and antihistaminics.Also monitor your BP regularly. Avoid bright lights wear shades.

Avatar m tn Headaches are not a symptom of hepatitis C. What pain relievers a person can take safely for people infected with hepatitis C depends upon what stage of liver disease the patient has. Many pain relievers are dangerous for persons with stage 4 liver disease (cirrhosis). NSAIDs can cause internal bleeding and kidney failure in people with cirrhosis. It doesn't appear that the cause of your husband's headaches have been diagnosed properly.
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 Today, all the symptoms are back with the on again/off again headache along with a tingling pain down my left arm. I didn't take my high blood pressure medicine this morning. Could this be the problem or am I experiencing Stoke-like symptoms.
2190999 tn?1504992491 and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms. The reason I'm posting now is bc I still have left leg weakness, hypersensitivity and constant tingling on the entire left side of my body. I've read migraines with stroke symptoms are benign but I'm wondering if I should expect things to get better. And yes I've thought about letting my neuro doc know about this, but I'm afraid she'll want to do more testing...

Avatar f tn Hi, it depends on the position of the aneurysm and if it causing compressive symptoms. Besides stroke, her symptoms could also be due to multiple sclerosis. A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis can be made over months to years and it is based on MRI, electrophysiological potentials from the brain and the presence of abnormal cells in the cerebrospinal fluid (fluid surrounding the brain). Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
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 m tn Hi, Thank you for your question. Common symptoms after stroke could be unconsciousness, loss of vision, headache, eye and neck pain, seizures, paralysis, gait disturbances etc. It needs some days to recover completely as it depends upon severity also. Investigations like CT angiography, MRI, CSF examination (presence of blood) are essential to reach at diagnosis here. Neurosurgery is the mainstay of treatment that may be suggested by a neurologist after examination.
Avatar f tn I am having sudden pain in left arm. Sudden headache. Blood pressure been high few days. Heart rate 125. A little high for me. Have had 2 past strokes but didn't know. Now pain yet numb left arm and my head. Neaus r a, eyes hurt. ?
Avatar m tn It's possible but not likely. Most likely, it is a pinched nerve. Could also be something like MS. If you have other signs of stroke you should be seen immediately. If not, it is probably okay to wait but I would get it checked out if it continues.

Avatar f tn I became very dehydrated and I could not even bring myself to stand up. I had a terrible headache and I felt as awful as I have ever felt. In the morning my roommate took me to our seriously lacking medical center on campus where they gave me a blue pill to keep me from throwing up and instructed me to keep drinking water because I was extremely dehydrated. The doctor told me that it was a migraine headache. This happened a few more times that fall, but with less intensity.
Avatar f tn I am going through the same thing. Just different side. In December 2009 for no apparent reason I lost most of the eye sight in my right eye. I was told then that was too close to the brain and that I would have to be watchful. Now this past week or so I have had a nauseating headache over that eye. About 2 weeks ago I was washing my hair and that eye burned as though it was dry. So dry it hurt. Now the weekend of 7/30 I sat down outside and my left leg went numb for about 2 or 3 minutes.
Avatar f tn I am a disabled Emergency Room RN...I know the symptoms of a stroke. I am puzzled with my own symptoms of late -- not sure if they are stroke-like. I have been having headaches for about one week that come out of nowhere. They absolutely make me sick "nauseated" and feel like pressure in my right to back of my head, sometimes pressure in my right ear. I have tried Tylenol PM, Ibuprofen and neither seem to help much.
Avatar f tn She described a feeling like someone putting pressure on the right side of her face and pulling down over. I thought it might have been a TIA/stroke and I am wondering if she should request to see a neurologist??
Avatar n tn Many possibilities exist, and depend somewhat on your age, your risk factors, and the nature of your symptoms (whether or not the numbness started suddenly or gradually, whether it is a complete loss of sensation or a tingling, whether it is an objective finding on examination or it is only a feeling that you have etc) The most concerning cause of numbness on one side of the body is a stroke.
