500374 tn?1210075013 I didn't have a brainstem stroke, but I did have a stroke and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? Also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.
Avatar n tn My husband has experienced two such "episodes." I call them episodes because he had stroke symptoms that passed before any permanent damage was done. The two episodes were a year and a half apart. The most recent one was two weeks ago. Through online research, my husband discovered the Bowhunter's Stroke. No doctor has diagnosed it, but they have diagnosed the herniated disks in his neck. We are in the process of contacting the doctor with this new information.
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.
1063524 tn?1258735804 Grandmother that raised me just went in nursing home, other Grandmother next door has alzheimers, Mother had a stroke several years ago and has been in nursing home but is now in ICU not expected to make it. Just a lot on me but you are so right about talking this out with my counselor. She can see things from the outside like you do. I do not EVER physically abuse my children I just find myself constantly yelling and then trying to apologize or make up for it but the damage is done.
Avatar f tn I had a stroke Oct 13,2008. I was 37 yrs old, healthy school bus driver who had a physical every year. The only time I was ever in a hospital was each time I gave birth, and I have 5 children.No complications giving birth. Never had high blood pressure.Until the day I had my stroke.
Avatar n tn I was 29 when I had my stroke....a bilataeral carotid disection. I was 2 weeks postpartum. I really don't have any leftover symptoms. The only question I have is: will I be able to have more kids? My neurologist said I could, but I am looking for second opinion. By the way, I am now 31 and have had an angiogram and 4 MRI as follow-up and nothing new has shown up.
Avatar m tn ALL of my research online points to MS, which quite frankly I think I would rather have had a stroke. I'm twice married, once divorced and have kids and cant afford to not work... I need advice on what I should do. I'm a little freaked out and beginning to worry about things I have no control over.
Avatar n tn Or does anyone have a clue as to what it could possibly be if it is not a stroke? In the past 10 years at least 4 doctors have said that it was a stroke - classic stoke symptoms - but not all of them read the MRIs. (The first MRI 10 years ago was read as "inconclusive" if I remember correctly. But to see me was to know that I had had a stroke.
Avatar n tn I am 34 and had a stroke during my 25th week of my pregnancy. I had AVMs. I had my first stroke at 25 also by an AVM. I was told by my neurosurgeon it was ok to get pregnant but I don't think any human can predict if its safe to have children if you had a previous stroke. Now the doctors say its up to me if I want to try again. They just don't know. I am in the same boat wanting to know if their are others out their that had an ok pregnancy after a stroke.
Avatar n tn I just found out that high levels can cause stroke! I also recovered very quickly and have no residual symptoms. I do have to say that having a baby is definitely motiviation to get better quickly.
Avatar n tn My friend had a brain stem stroke 3 years ago at the age of 39 and had all the symptoms of your husband. I will tell you it's a tough road ahead! You can go to to read about her progress.. keep in mind it's very slow. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn My OB/GYN says it's okay to have kids. I'm 35 years old. Had a stroke when I was 31. Pretty major one. A brain stem stroke. It could have easily killed me but here I am. My OB/GYN says I can have kids I just have to be monitored . He says he's been doing this for 20 years and no one has ever died or had another stroke. I have to take a daily needle of heparin in my belly or my butt to keep my blood thin.
Avatar n tn My husband aged 54 had a (embolic) stoke in July, which affected his left side, he recovered quickly and was able to give a brilliant speech at our daughters wedding on august 9th 2008, then suddenly at the end of August his speech began to deteriorate, they detected another stroke which caused this. Now he has no other symptoms other than this speech slur, has anyone any advice. He has been referred to speach therapist, but as yet not seen anyone.
435241 tn?1208579131 I hope you are feeling better sorry to ramble on so much but yes I had stroke like symptoms and all my scans came back clear
Avatar n tn If the daily symptoms were being caused by strokes, your brain would look really, really bad. Usually, stroke symtpoms are limited and will resolve with a remaining deficit. Your symptoms are continuous that would rule out stroke as a cause of these symptoms, with the MRI you describe. I can't tell you what your symptoms are from because I can't examine you.
Avatar n tn At 39 I was diagnosed with a TIA/mini-stroke. Initial Sympton: White light covered my sight and I started to mumble and unable to formulate words/or communicate with my co-workers. I went home "slept it off" and the next day returned to the office however, I couldn't put my thoughts together while crafting emails and went to the emergency room (Navy Medical Portsmouth, Va). A highly respected neurologist, after many many tests...
Avatar n tn My DX is vertigo, but I was told yesterday, by someone with vertigo, that is not what I have. They are staying away from the word stroke because it seems I'm too young at 35 to have one of those. What led to my dizinness and nausea is different, but I'm left with same. One day can be good with little dizziness, and some days bad, but the nausea has worn off. I don't get nausiated all the time anymore with the diziness.
Avatar n tn thanks for your comment, I can relate to your experience. I'm 57, 8 weeks ago I had a stroke with out any of the obvious stroke symptoms besides headaches and feeling like I couldn't get out of bed for a week. As the days wore on I began to have clumsiness, some indistinct numbness, but what got my attention was It took me 3 or 4 tries one day to tie my shoes. finally we talked to a Dr. who ordered a MRI and MRA. We were shocked to get the results which revealed a massive stroke!
Avatar n tn When the stroke happened, I ignored my symptoms and they went away. Just to be on the safe side I saw my family doctor 3 days later, and he immediately sent me to emergency where I had blood work and CT scan, which showed I had a stroke. I asked if there was any connection between my nose injury and stroke, and told there was none.
Avatar f tn I am not trying to scare you but a stroke is rather serious. Do some research and if you think the symptoms match up force her to see a doctor. whether she believes in them or not this could save her from having a more serious stroke, which could do anything from paralyzing one side of the body or even death. I'm sorry to scare or worry. As I said, I may be wrong, this is only a best guess from a college student, who works with children and took a first aid and cpr course.
Avatar f tn Thyroid stuff aside, your symptoms scream TIA (mini stroke) and/ or seizure! If you haven't had an MRI, maybe it would show it? A CAT scan will show damage, but a TIA won't necessarily cause any...The scary part of this is, TIA's are often a warning sign that there is an "event" like a stroke, hypertensive crisis, or something neurological in your future...
Avatar f tn I started seeing a Neurologist and he told me I was suffering from complicated migraines with neuro symptoms that mimick a stroke. It was all very scary and hard to believe that a headache could do such things to you. It has almost been a year since all this happened to me and I still don't feel right. I have memory loss, some mild speach issues, headaches daily and migraines all the time. I some times get a loss of sensation on my left side, but no more seizures thank goodness.
Avatar f tn It is very likely that you suffered a stroke 1 month ago which means you are now at an even higher risk of having another stroke -- and the next one may be devastating and permanent. You must treat your blood pressure, check your sugar and cholesterol and put yourself on a good diet. Find a doctor or a clinic that will do a comprehensive exam and start you on medication. Do it for your kids.
Avatar f tn I have been told by different doctors differnt things. Eg. TIA stroke, because of Stress, in my own head. I am very frustrated at this all. I cant drive my kids to schoool, cant do normal duties etc etc. This time i had a friend with me that mentioned the nurse/doctor said it looked like i just had a silent seziure. I was there awake but not there. I cant remember much of the past couple of weeks. I am very tired. The other day i was awake 4 hours out of 24hours. and weak, exhausted.
Avatar n tn So before embarking on an invasive procedure like a PFO closure, perhaps your stroke workup needs to looked at again in terms of where the stroke is on MRI, what you blood vessels look like on an MR angiogram and what may be the most likely cause of the stroke. The relationship between PFO and stroke is still a bit controversial - there are trials going to on evalaute the benefit of closure. The other episodes do not sound typical for TIA or migraine.
327385 tn?1378364331 In some cases, epileptic seizures can be triggered by things that happen in the environment. Without the symptoms of epilepsy, we can not say that your son is and will have the same condition as you were. It is important that you watch out for these symptoms and to bring him to your doctor for evaluation. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn On neuropyschological test battery it wasn't possible to calculate IQ because of very wide range of capabilities and deficits (note that I'd had similar IQ tests in the past - all satisfactory). But as the CT and open MRI hadn't shown stroke and as I was clearly not behaving as a 'typical' HM patient (that is, my sx hadn't cleared up in a week or so ), I was/am imagining it all... This is the NHS.... Hence, cutting a very long and painful story short, still no diagnosis of whatever happened.
Avatar n tn If you didn't have the spine imaged, you should talk to your doc as MS can show up there too. Hypothyroidism can certainly be a cause of your symptoms. Once treated adequately, your symptoms may improve. Another test that may be helpful is an EMG to see if this a problem of your peripheral nerves. Laboratory workup such as ANA, sed rate, blood count and electrolye profile can also help rule out other potential problems such as lupus and other rheumatological disorders.
Avatar n tn Hi I'm terribly upset. My dad has just had a stroke. He's 72 and is currently in hospital virtually asleep full time. We know that it is caused by a blood clot stemming from Atrial Fibrillation and it has affected his left side (No vision, left arm and leg) The doctor has painted a very bleak picture which was very devastating and right now at this moment it just seems that there is no hope. Can anyone re-assure me that if he survives there is some hope for quality of life.
1344197 tn?1392822771 Hysterectomy for benign, non cancerous, indications is one of the commonest surgical procedures in women, but the association between the procedure and the increase risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), heart attack and stroke is not fully understood. Hysterectomy has traditionally been considered the method of choice for treating a variety of benign, non-cancerous, gynecological disorders due to the low surgical complication rate and definite cure of these diseases.
