Avatar m tn I have had a neuralogist do a mri and a mri with contrast and all came back normal. When my symptoms were at its worse I had a cat scan and was normal. When I wake up in the morning I cough up yellow brownish mucas. I have been laying in bed for weeks and symptoms seem miner however when I walk or go out and be social my symptoms get worse. Or when my blood pressure is up for a long period of time.
Avatar n tn Twelve days ago my 15 year old cat had a convulsion, her vet said she had a stroke. She went blind. He prescribed her microsolone and candilat. She is still blind. Do you thonk she can recover at least some eyesight? Her vet said her right eye was bleeding internally, a little. Do I continue with the corticoid in spite of this bleeding?
691463 tn?1227419054 body bent to the left so she veered a bit as she walked (but kept a shoulder near a wall to guide herself), she did drool a little more, her eyes didn't focus quite as well... The 3 younger cats all were still deferential to her as Boss of the House and seemed to snuggle with her more. We got her to our vet, who after a thorough examination, prescribed an enzyme treatment with which he had had success on other feline stroke victims.

At all ages, more women than men die of stroke. Use of birth control pills and pregnancy pose special stroke risks for women. Prior stroke, TIA or heart attack - The risk of stroke for someone who has already had one is many times that of a person who has not.

Avatar m tn The squiggly in your vision may be a “floater” in the eyeball itself. However, different stressors can bring out symptoms of a previous stroke in people who have had prior strokes. Lastly, I strongly encourage you to not take your ativan and alcohol together. You should address this with your primary care physician.
Avatar f tn if the cat scan was negative then no it wasn't a stroke. neither "mini stroke". It might have been something else affecting the central nervous system. Take note of the episode, keep logging symptoms etc. over the next months it's very important to do that. Your symptoms in medical terms I think were mild Ataxia (bad coordination) and maybe Dysarthria if "mechanically" you were unable to speak.
Avatar n tn how old is she? could be a stroke any case she badly needs to be seen by a Vet...she is in 'critical' condition with these symptoms...please take her to a Vet asap.
Avatar n tn My Mother in law had a stroke 21 day's ago She wouldnt go to the hospital at first. We finally got her to go after begging all night. When we got her there she let them do a Cat scan but wouldnt let them do an MRI Then she insisted we take her home the doctor told my husband she was past the critical stage since the actual stroke was 24 hours before. She made such a scene we felt as though we had no choice.
Avatar m tn He does need to be worked up completely which makes your decision absolutely correct in wanting to get a second opinion.Even if a stroke is ruled out again you will at least be sure of the diagnosis. ref: http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar f tn I have a 9 year old male cat. He was fine eating and drinking when he started to what looked to he was trying to clean his upper back. He then started going in circles , moving around like he was havinf a panic attack, acting like he was blind, sniffing everything and his head was bopping. He never lets me hold him in my lap but was letting me. I woke up the next day and it was like nothing had hapened. This is the second time this has happened.
Avatar f tn Stroke did not show, nor did anything else on MRI, CAT scan, ECG or in bloodwork. With my heart condition is it reasonable to assume this could be a TIA in your opinion? I have presented to ER 2 other times within the same month with same symptoms exact but a bit milder and each time the drs dismiss me with no possible explanation. The other two times tho the symptoms had disappeared by the time the ER drs had seen me after a four hr wait each time in the ER waiting room.

Avatar f tn I had a mild stroke in March 2009. Is there a medication or treatment for migranes with stroke symtoms, numbness, speech slurring and dizziness for someone who had a stroke. I am having neck and back therapy to relieve tightness but that is about it. I am seeing a nearolgist and internist but so for no luck and the headaches won't go away. Cat scans do not reveal any new strokes. Headaches are getting worse and I am getting fatigued from having to fight the symtoms all day.

Avatar f tn Let us know how it turns out!
Avatar f tn t believe it parents friends no one. everyone thought it was in my head. i kept crying to my parents every day how i had a headache. i would even throw up sometimes i had no idea what was happening i was so little. all i could remember was something was off with the back of my eyes and there was pain in my head and my eye brows. so as i got older i had these weird episodes of losing consciousness.
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 s memory could be playing tricks on him and he may be remembering symptoms from before his stroke and feeling them in his body. My father's memory has been affected by his stroke, so if that is the case with your husband that may be something else to consider.
739242 tn?1234217827 t diminish the frequency, only the sensation). I am wondering if I had a stroke. They did a CAT scan in the ER, but I understand these are not always accurate at showing stroke. My symptoms are degenerating, into tremors and general exhaustion. I am at my wits' end.
