Stroke symptoms left side

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms left side


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 f tn She is experiencing severe migraines, along with severe nausea, and the left side of her face has become numb, and droopy. The first thing we thought was a mild stroke, she was admitted into the hospital, after MRI'S, Cat-scans, countless bloodwork, and ultrasounds, stroke was ruled out. Now, her dx is vascular migraines. I am curious after reading alot of posts about similar problems after gallbladder surgery, if anyone has has similar problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Not tingling but numb to touch only. Within two days my left side was numb as well.. Scalp, face, neck, back, chest, stomach, hip, pelvic, leg, ankle. Again this is only the left side.. Within the past year I have had vertigo and ringing of the ears.. Test show nothing and were all inconclusive. MRI of the brain - nothing.. Right eye became droopy (tposis) a year ago... nothing to indicate why -- unexplained tissue damages... vertigo and ringing went away 7 months ago and now this..

Avatar n tn Hello dear, You probably had a Transient Ischaemic Attack or a mini stroke caused by the temporary disturbance of blood supply to a restricted area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that usually persists for less than 24 hours.The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision ; difficulty speaking (aphasia); weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis); and numbness or tingling (paresthesia), usually on one side of the body.
