Avatar n tn I'm 78, had a stroke in Oct.2007, feed through a belly tube, can't feel heat or cold on my right side, lost some equilibrium but walk without walker or cane. Around 2001 I acquired a neuropathy problem (numbness in hands and feet), my neurologist called it bracial plexes said I'm losing my mylin, Mayo Clinic (Jacksonville, Fla.), says "No, mylin's fine, It's a nerve problem, and that it'll get worse. Mayo offered no solution.
667923 tn?1421462724 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 I have had a speech problem, which I attribute to a mini stroke as diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. They also diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia.

I used to fall a lot, but I have learned to be very careful. My vision is blurry. I also have Diabetes, type II.

I freak put at nothing and stay depressed about everything.
Avatar f tn There is the maze procedure.

1003418 tn?1250185999 In 2004, I became very ill with symptoms of fever, severe joint pain, WBC 1.2, anemia, very low platelets and severe fatigue. The doctor thought I had meningitis due to caring for a pt in the ER with meningitis a week earlier. These symptoms persisted for 3 months and every test seemed to be performed with only positive ANA, elevated IgG and IgM levels as well as pancytopenia. I seem to recover therefore I never followed up with a Rheumatologist.

I had a 2 hour appt with the neuro and I liked him verymuch, He listened well and didn't seem to form opinions before he heard all of my timeline etc. I had my list of meds, timeline, cover letter from me telling him what I expected from my visit and all my test results and notes from the neuros I have seen. He ordered another lumbar puncture and mris of brain, and two parts of my spine.
1166523 tn?1264364643 Hi janereed, I went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN in Oct 09. When I first walked in it was a dr that was training to be a consulting dr and he told me that they believed I had a stroke and that I was gonna stay like I was without improving. Well I blew up at him because he hadn't even examined me or anything. And all my other dr's from home had ruled out a stroke and said MS. Well the consulting dr. (Dr. Keegan) came in and did an examination and was very nice.
Avatar n tn As shown in a recent study by Mayo Clinic, early seisure occured in 6% post stroke patients, and late seisure in little more than 5% patients. As far as the management, they should be treated as fully developed seisures in nonstroke patients, but with greater caution. Post stroke patients tend to have residual motor and sensory deficits. They are not able to detect and report the early symptoms of seisures and take save actions accordingly.
764912 tn?1322711843 Hi, Had an MRI/MRA last week. Now the left cerebellum infarction is called a lesion? Plus they say a large area in left frontal lobe with in normal limits for my age, but this is not mentioned on previous MRI 8months ago? Is that because I also had an MRA this time? I was in the ER for 3 days then they gave me DHE for migraine and said I had a silent migraine, however my balance issues got worse, memory is shot---terrible can't remember names or events...
Avatar m tn It sounds like a mini stroke, or Transient ischemic attack (TIA). Because she has had a stroke in the past, her brain might be predisposed to suffering TIAs. Some with TIAs can get a child-like voice and mannerisms afterwards. The eye movement and the lack of memory point to a stroke. A stroke is when the blood flow gets interrupted or reduced to a certain part of the brain There are some people who regularly get TIAs wiithout the damage of a full blown stroke (paralysis).
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional.

3123787 tn?1384180687 I had a ruptured anurism from toxic medicine, called Abilify and also was given 3 shots of Haldol, because i trusted my doctor. He had told the Mayo clinic to give me 7 shots of different neuroleptics. I had no idea, until the Mayo shipped me 300 miles to another hospital. By the time i got home i realized i had shower shock and could not figure out how to open an envelope! I did call the Mayo, up and they apologized and put the blame on my PC. My question is very symple.
Avatar f tn My daughter had a stroke in her thalamus at age 17 and is still having headaches 2 years later... every day... any ideas for treatment or diagnosis??? Her doctor says that it is migraines and the two are not related. It seems like too much of a coincidence to me. Can a stroke cause persistent headaches and what is the treatment????
Avatar m tn Lyme disease can cause olfactory [smell] hallucinations -- I have had them. The ENT (ear/nose/throat) MD I saw didn't know what it was, but my Lyme dr did. They come and go. However, if you don't have any of the other signs or symptoms of Lyme, then I would think the likelihood that you have Lyme is low. However, I'm not a doctor, so can't say for sure.
