Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms kids


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 ll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
407961 tn?1202013647 I had a left cerebellar stroke in oct of 2007. I am 20 years old. They said it happened because of birth control and smoking. I really want to have another baby, but I am worried about what could happen. I have a 2 year old, and that pregnancy went perfect!! But I am worried about having another one. I have left side weakness when i dont get enough sleep, and i still have tingling in my left arm, but i take aspirin every day and check my blood pressure and it stays low.
Avatar n tn Anyway if you look up complicated migraines all the symptoms fit and they can cause stroke like symptoms. I hope you mother is feeling better soon, I know it has been a long and painful road for me!!
500374 tn?1210071413 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 f tn It seems like you are having "stroke-like" symptoms which are intermittent, also known as TIA's (Transient Ischemic Attacks). Strokes are not to be taken lightly, permanent damage is usually preventable with early diagnosis to correct the underlying problem. Insurance or not, you need to see a doctor asap!
Avatar m tn Certain medical conditions need to be considered like a transient ischemic attack, stroke, alzheimer’s disease and depression. Once stroke and TIA are ruled out, she may be assessed by a psychiatrist depending on the protocols in the hospital. Take care.
1063524 tn?1258732204 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 Has anybody experienced stroke symptoms? All day Saturday my left arm was kinda numb and tingling and the that night out of no where the tingling went up my neck to my face, my lips and tongue went numd, got hot and my heart was beating fast...laid down and it went away.
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 stopping alcohol intake can improve the ataxia but if it is severe, some permanent symptoms may remain. In patients with cerebellar stroke, with intensive physical and occupational therapy over weeks to months, symptoms may become minimal and may even resolve completely.
Avatar f tn I have 2 babies , I had Stoke symptoms with both but my last one was worse . I'm pregnant now , only like 4 weeks , and I'm already getting stroke symptoms.

My left side goes numb an I can see out of my eye an I get a migraine like no other .
Avatar n tn Many owners confuse the symptoms of a stroke in humans to a stroke in dogs. In fact, they are quite different.
Avatar f tn ve been having blurred vision headache and dizziness vertigo symptoms and it showed that one of the arterys to the back of my brain is blocked plz help im so scared im a single mum to 3 kids one of them only 3 yrs old with problems have i got a risk of having a stroke now
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.
Avatar n tn There would not be any evidence of stroke in her bloodwork. Who told you that? You look at the signs and symptoms. Not the darned bloodwork and MRI. I would have had your internists licence...well I'll stop...let's just say he was working abiove his pay grade and should have referred you to a stroke center instantly. Who told you "there is no evidence of stroke"? Obviously he recieved medical training in lower Ghana, and served in internship in Nigeria.
Avatar n tn The next day he woke up with the same symptoms as the stroke 6 years ago and we assumed he had another stroke. The MRI, CTScan shows no new stroke, but his symptoms continue and he doesn't seem to be getting much better. He has lost his job due to the memory loss issues. Any thoughts on what could have happened? We are seeing a neuropsychologist.
Avatar f tn I would rather die at 40 than put my family in the street. I just want to know if these are serious symptoms of heart or stroke, so I can make sure my wife or kids don't find daddy dead in the hall or something, I'm ready to go somewhere and let it happen to protect my family's finances. Any advise would be great.
Avatar f tn I was on 100mg and I began having tia-stroke like symptoms. Sometimes even something small like new meds can be a side effect. CRAZy Right? Or maybe you should keep a log of what you eat and what you experience. so you can give it to your dr. Another thing? do you have a lot of stress in your life? or suffer from anxiety or depression. Because that could also effect you. I hope you find out soon!
867582 tn?1311627397 Hi, MSers, I think its' so interesting that not long after I visited the ER with stroke symptoms (which the ER MD thought could be MS) I received the MSAA's summer edition of their magazine, "The MSAA Motivator" in which in their "Ask The Doctor" section they discussed "can MS Lesions Mimic a Stroke?" It's almost like they were speaking directly to me!!
