350555 tn?1196587877 Well, I feel like I have symptoms of a stroke. Today my left side of my face and my left hand and fingers feel like they are tingling. More like pins and needles. I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....
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 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 f tn The important signs and symptoms of a stroke are sudden confusion or trouble in speaking o understanding. There may be sudden numbness or weakness of face, arm or leg, usually on one side. Sudden loss of vision, dizziness o loss of balance and coordination may also indicate a stroke. If the headache is sudden and severe in intensity, it needs to be investigated for stroke. Consult a neurologist immediately for a detailed assessment and relevant investigations like MRI brain. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Over the past year, I have been experiencing periods where my left side of my face will become numb and tingly similar to when you get a novacaine shot at the dentist. Also my ear feels like there is something in there that is affecting my hearing.I had my sinuses checked and my ENT said they were fine. Recently the symptons have started to come more frequently. The new sympton is the tip of my nose gets really cold and sometimes my ear.
Avatar f tn Is your headache severe and unusual for you? Look up stroke symptoms on the internet and you will see these symptoms plus neck pain are symptoms of a stroke. And not responding to pain medication is further suspicions of a stroke. You may not be about to have one, but you should call your doctor's office about your symptoms ASAP. I had a suddenly different headache that would not respond to my usual pain killers. It was severe.

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.

Avatar n tn s concern. With your risk factors for stroke and the additional symptoms of face numbness, I would be reluctant to just chalking this up to amiodarone. Talk to your doctor about the possible need for an MRI. Best of luck.

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 n tn On 09/2003 I was stricken with a really bad headache; left side weakness of arm, hand, and leg; numbness of the fingers to the left hand; fatigue especially after a shower; dizziness and occasional tremors of the left hand. MRIs of the head and cervical spine, lumbar tap, vascular ultrasounds, and other tests showed no evidence of a stroke, MS or Parkinson's Disease. MRIs did show cervical disc disease and a disc removal and fusion was done several months later.
