stroke

Avatar m tn Hi, What other symptoms are present? One-sided body weakness is indeed one presentation of stroke. And to confirm this, imaging studies and direct clinical examination is important. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.

Avatar n tn These will help to diagnose whether it is a stroke and whether the stroke is ischemic or haemorrhagic . If left untreated , it may lead to paralysis on one side of the body . Please discuss the management plan with a neurologist after the diagnostic tests are done . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
Avatar n tn to the left. I also had very slurred speech and I was terribly off balance.I was sure I had a stroke but the E.r was full and didnt see me and so after several hrs I went back home. About 10 days later I found out it was the meds and my Dr. ordered a MRI. It came back negative for stroke but found a sm. cyst in my sinus and so my Dr. is quick to dismiss the symptoms I had.Should I be worried and what other tests can I have to detect a stroke?
783212 tn?1295031606 sudden numbness or weakness of the face/arm/leg/one side of the body; sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding; sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination; and sudden, severe headache with no known cause. IN your case, you have been experiencing your symptoms for some time now, and stroke usually occurs suddenly. If prescription medications do not help, try complementary and alternative medicine.
Avatar m tn FOR ABOUT FOUR WEEKS I HAVE HAD A STRONG PULSE SENSATION ON THE LEFT SIDE OF MY HEAD. THE PULSE IS SO STRONG IT KEEPS ME AWAKE AT NIGHT. THEY HAVE INCREASED TO THE POINT THAT EVERY OTHER DAY IT FEELS LIKE I'M HAVING A STROKE WHEN THE PULSE INCREASES RAPIDLY FROM WHAT I'VE BEENABLE TO READ I FEEL LIKE IT'S A PARTIALLY BLOCKED CARTHOID ARTERY. I'M HAVING A CAT SCAN, MRI OF THE BRAIN, MR ANGIOGRAM OF INTRACRANIAL VESSELS AND MR VENOGRAM OF THE HEAD. I'M TRYIMG TO AVOID HAVING A MAJOR STROKE.
667923 tn?1421466324 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 m tn Thank you for your reply on my Post regarding brain stroke on left side. My sister is under medical care at the present time. But the doctors seem to think that this is some rare case.She has lost some 32# in 3weeks. They now have her on intravenous, she still could not keep down any pills. She had been to a rehab.unit for a week, they let her go home, and thats when she still could not take any pills, without throwing up.
4418279 tn?1354280970 I have very painful tingling down the entire left side of my body, plus twitching, and the left side of my face droops. It looks as though I'm having a stroke but I'm not. I also have a lot of pressure and pain in the back of my head and left eye. I had a brain MRI with and w/ out contrast and and EEG, which came back clean. I think my doctors have given up, but I cannot live like this. I have to finish college, but getting out of bed is a huge struggle some days. I am 22 caucasion female.
Avatar m tn HI, I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT DURATION OF STROKE SYMPTOMS ,I HAVE THIS SYMPTOMS ABOUT A WEEK LIKE DIZZENESS , EXTREME FATIGUE ,LEFT SIDE OF MY FACE AND BODY WEAKNESS.
Avatar n tn Prayer. It works . My mother had a stroke left side brain stroke paralyzed her right side also affected her speech. The doctors we had did not give us hope they told us to put my mom in a nursing home that she probably would not recover. That was not an option for me my brother or my dad. Mom was in the hospital from Nov. 30th to Jan 14th. We went through physical therapy at the hopital with mom and we could see improvement in her even if a little bit daily.
Avatar f tn About 15 minuted later a had a very strange feeling so I stood up and my whole left side was not working. I was walking like I had epilepsy or something. This only lasted about 5 minutes or so. I was admitted into the hospital that day and had an MRI the next day which showed a very small spot in the right side of my brain in the back of my head. My heart and cartoid arteries checked out ok and so after 2 days they sent me home. Ever since this happened, I have not felt right.
Avatar n tn I had a stroke in April with negative MRI, but severe left side weakness. I had a TIA in July with negative MRI, but with only slight weakness. Now I am experiencing severe migraines that have spasms so painful in my head it feels like My brain is being stabbed over & over. My weakness is worse. It is on the left side. I was walking with a walker 260 ft. with a therapist before this last episode. HELP!!
Avatar n tn My 63 year old brother in law went to the ER last week with numbness on the left side, vomiting, confusion progressing to babbling then inability to speak, then brief unconsiousness. Within 2 hours of arrival his sensation returned and he could talk. CAT scan was negative, there was a "dark place' on one lung which the doc thought was a non issue, and no other confirmation of TIA. However, what could this have been other than TIA?
2190999 tn?1504992491 I was worked up for MS in 2012 and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms. In 2012 I had left leg weakness and foot drop, dizziness which lasted for months, lateral nystagmus, loss of balance etc.The reason I ask now is bc I still have left leg weakness and tingling on the entire left side of my body. The tingling is constant with intense waves of tingling.
872566 tn?1283004416 I did have something different this past 4th of July eve where I felt like my left side was numb from my face all the was to me feet. It lasted for quite afew minutes. I found it hard to talk for a while after this started to subside. I don't know if I started to panic and this was from that? But I have not felt the same mentally or physcally since. I see my PCP in a few weeks. Just thought I would ask this question since I am here on this site now. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I'm not for an abortion but if it means loosing my life will my doctor let me terminate , I can be on birth control because I get the same symptoms. My left side goes numb an I can see out of my eye an I get a migraine like no other . I normally don't get the stroke symptoms till about 6 months but I'm already having them . I don't want my life in danger nor the baby , will my doctor do this for me ?.
Avatar n tn He was discharged still completely numb in left leg and some of left side still. Had been taking Zoloft about a month with increase to 100 mg. The hospital is trying to say it's stress related!! My husband is still not well, and neurologist said "?" as to what caused this! I kept saying I thought it had to do with the meds. He'd never.
Avatar f tn I agree with your doctor that you are showing symptoms of anxiety due to stress. Stress and anxiety can both cause stroke and heart attack like symptoms. From the chest pain you described, I would say it's likely anxiety related. I'm not saying that you aren't having mini-strokes...but you are not having major strokes. Mini-strokes pass and leave you to function with no long lasting effects...a "normal" stroke will not.
Avatar n tn Had classic symptoms of stroke, when I was taken to the ER I was told I was having a strokeby nuerologist. Right side of my body was paralyzed, and left side of face was affected. CT w/out contrast,MRI,EEG all came back negative. When reading over nuerologist notes from ER he stated that Spasticity was observed also.
2190999 tn?1504992491 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... my deductible is $3000.
Avatar n tn Tim My mother, 91 years old had a massive stroke is right side paralyzed and cannot speak. I believe she is in much worse shape than your grandmother who can move her arm/leg and respond to you. They told me that my mother would never speak again and that I was facing "end of life issues." Well that was 4 years ago. I don't think the Drs. can predict much of anything. Don't give up hope and stay involved with your grandmother and her care. Read a lot of the posts on this site...
484698 tn?1208823583 but years ago i went through the stroke episode i was so convinced i had slurred speech my left side would even go numb it was horrible the doctor did blood tests to see if my bloods were normal and lo and behold they were i also had a brain scan which was also normal. the doc told me if you are sooooo convinced that you have an illness you can make your body mimic the symptoms all anxiety!!!!!
Avatar n tn It is difficult to gauge the intensity of symptoms from your post, but there is a possibility that these symptoms are due to stroke or migraine. It is very important to get a clinical evaluation done. Both stroke and migraine can cause one sided headache with numbness. Patients with aortic aneurysm are at an increased risk of atherosclerosis or blockade of artery by a plaque which can cause heart attacks and stroke. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn My concern with your symptoms would be a small stroke, resulting in numbness of the Left side of your body. I am especially concerned since you give a history of a tooth infection. Whenever there is a tooth infection that is untreated, there is a risk of the bacteria going in to the blood stream and attaching to the valves inside the heart. The bacteria can then grow there in to a vegetation, and parts of it can break of and go to the brain, resulting in a stroke.
Avatar m tn PLS I HAD A MILD STROKE LAST 4 MONTH TO MY LEFT SIDE WHICH LAST FOR LESS AN HOUR I WAS ADDIMITED FOR 5 DAYS FOR INVESTIGATIONS AM NOT HYPERTENSIVE AND AM NOT DIABETIC BUT I WAS A SMOKER.I HAD CT SCAN WHICH RESULT TO HAVING INFARCTION. BUT NOW MY LEFT SIDE IS HAVING BURNING SENSATION.
Avatar n tn i had a mini stroke last 8/13/10 when I had a double lung transplant, I had some tingling on whole left side from neck down and heaviness with left arm, I had an mri at that time, and they stated somethng was there, but did not give me any more details. Now its 2011 and i still have the same problems so i consulted a nuerologist and had a MRI done with the following results. Please explain what this means, and if there is any treatment or way to diminisht the problem.
Avatar f tn i'm from India, 3 months back my father got admitted in to the hospital, due to brain stroke. Because of that he had a problem of giddiness and left side eye movement was not clear it was closed. after the treatment. Eye movements is okay.,but still he is facing giddiness problem, when he will get up & walk... that time. Consulted the Neuro doctor he said you are perfectly alright... BP level is normal.... Dr asked him to consult the ENT and Eye specialist.
Avatar n tn hi i have numbness down the left side of my arm and left leg have no headache but pain in right eye have had cat scan and it is not a stroke i had the same thing a year ago then again after a week lasts for about 4 days anyone any suggestions please
Avatar m tn which lasts for roughly 30 seconds - always one side of body - main cramp/pain starts behind left eye, left jaw, left neck/base of head, down left arm peaking inside left wrist/hand - almost always happens at evening/night (once it happened at work during the afternoon) - pressure often felt behind left eye and jaw during the days - malaise and panic-like symptoms before onset, heightened blood pressure, "thumping heart" On circulatory system is fine.
