2190999 tn?1504992491 and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms. 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...
1166523 tn?1264368243 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 f tn I had a stroke and Chiari and have been to Chiari specialists that can not tell me which come first. Now after 5 years post op, I am having anxiety/ depression, major pressure and pain in my head. I have been to Mayo Clinic and everything is "Fine!" Now that I have lost my new job due to my illness and my neurosurgeon says my Chiari is fine, then why am I now having symptoms I have never had before? No one can tell me! I freak put at nothing and stay depressed about everything.
764912 tn?1322715443 Hi tracy sounds like a seizure doesnt it. Are you still in the Mayo? So your symptoms are not stroke related which I suppose is something but if not a stroke then what is the question. I was worried about you but glad you have posted.
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 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. Since it didn't clear up, I sought a Speech Therapist who diagnosed me with Dysarthria. I have not received any treatment yet. I have had the condition for several months. I used to fall a lot, but I have learned to be very careful. My vision is blurry. I also have Diabetes, type II.
Avatar f tn our favorite expression with Mayo clinic is "hold the mayo". They diagnose to a different, rather ancient system and have frustrated many members. I suggest you contact the MS national org, they often suggest places near you. Many of us, not to discourage you, have spent years and more than a few neuro's chasing the diagnosis we didn't really want. Welcome to our corner and keep us posted on your travels!
Avatar f tn retching symptoms but no stroke. I had a endoscopy and it showed the retching damage as well as Hiatal hernia. I was put on Protonix. I still get that same cough/vomit feeling even when my stomach is empty for 4-12 hours after eating. After reading all the harm PPI can do including stroke I decided to add anti viral herbs to my diet to reduce post nasal drip infection etc. It seems certain foods trigger acid reflux GERD symptoms as well.
Avatar n tn I started years ago with neck problems. (neck hurt went to chiropractor) After the birth of my second child, I had stroke like symptoms on my left side. I kept having different symptoms that fit MS. The first MRI was normal but dr. said that it was early and might not show up yet. I have been treated for MS all this time. In the past few years, I have been getting paralyzed on/off when I lay on the back of my head.
Avatar f tn My last cerebral artery occlusion with infaret, was 1.2 years ago, but just recently i started getting the worst post stroke spacticity symptoms. As usuall, i am the 1 that finds my own cures. Most stroke doctors, now know that worst drug to give a patient, especially if they suffered demylination disease along with their stroke is neuroleptic drugs, which actually cause CPSP!
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.
98474 tn?1240108874 Hi All, Well we made it to Scottsdale and to the Mayo Clinic this am. 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.
Avatar n tn 2011 dizziness (feeling unsteady - not room spinning type) with sudden onset hypertension, tachycardia and by Feb. 2011 with continued symptoms - flushing on left side of face only, no sweating. Seems I quit sweating in the past year. My BP ranges as high as 210/140 to as low as 88/58 all in the same 24 hour period. HR from 58 to 145 all in same 24 hour period. Started in Nov and ruled out vision with eye doc, ruled out sinus infection, so then to general doc, referred to cardiologist.
98474 tn?1240108874 I am still undiagnosed. My orthopediac surgeon has suggested that I go to the Mayo Clinic for diagnoses. Today, I went shopping for a few things. Lately I can't stand very long at all. I am loosing my legs. I was carrying a few clothing items over my arm and it became so weak my hand and arm were shaking. The weird thing is..that rest makes it almost immediately better. Lately my head feels heavy when I am tired like my neck can't hold up my head. Does anyone else ever feel like this?
Avatar n tn What medical specialty could diagnose this? What other disease could it be? Symptoms: Slurred speech, weakened limbs, high anxiety, hard to swallow food. Began November, 2006. Negative Testing: January 2-6,2007 Hospital stay in St. Louis Missouri could not find anything with MRI's. 2 MRI's showed negative for stroke. Also blood work negative for Myasthenia Gravis or Multiple Sclerosis. Hospital said too much time had past, and only suggested possible mini-stroke.
Avatar f tn A good internist as your primary doctor can help balance it all out, find the right docs for your symptoms, and manage the day to day for you. And it does take some time to find the one that "clicks" with you. But, it is so worth the search! Best of luck!
Avatar n tn My right leg from the knee down has similar symptoms. I was terrified of ALS when the symptoms started, but now feel that the MRI suggests other causes. Can what is going on in my back cause these symptoms? Also, can rehab/therapy remedy this or is surgery a "have to"? Thanks so very much! CCF-Neuro-M.D.-SH 12/17/2006 Zacksmom First of all, keep in mind that I am unable to diagnose you because I am unable to examine you, this forum is for educational purposes.
Avatar n tn My neurologist originally suspected MS after an episode which landed me in the ER with symptoms of a stroke, but we are going down this path now. It has been a long and frustrating journey, and I only hope we are heading in the right direction. I've had a difficult time finding comprehensive information which might help in tying all these symptoms and medical terms together. But I have found useful information at the brain talk forum... Good luck and keep your head up.
1830047 tn?1321671393 I'd seen three local neurologists but it wasn't until I went to the Mayo Clinic that anyone gave me a full in-office exam... no one even bothered to stroke the bottom of my feet, which was positive for cns involvement along with a couple others tests that surprised me. I'm back with first neuro (Mr. Migraine) bc I was diagnosed with FM within ten minutes of seeing rheumy. However, he did warn that a lot of what I exp is cns.
1003418 tn?1250189599 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.
Avatar n tn 79 a few years ago) and she will still not treat it because I have had a stroke and am at high risk for osteoporosis - she states side effects of the meds can cause heart palpatations and osteoporosis. I have attributed several of the symptoms to my stroke even though I physically recovered very quickly (3 weeks or so) and so now I am wondering if it is actually my thyroid. I wish I had some words of wisdom, but I hope it helps in knowing you're not alone.
Avatar n tn You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
Avatar m tn I posted in a few other forums, but a lot of times when I check out a cause of some of the below symptoms I spy "liver" disorder. Maybe I am scouting the wrong places, but was curious if anyone could shed some light on if I may have a liver disorder of some type. Thanks.
Avatar n tn While I feel many anxiety symptoms physically, I cannot relate to the emotional component. I do not get any of the anxiety related emotions such as fear, panic, feeling like I'm going to die...anything, I do however get the physical symptoms such as dizzziness, tightness in my head, rapid heart beat and a feeling of tingling in my head and face. I have just returned from yet another appointment with a new doctor, who is finally listening to me.
Avatar n tn I was only out of work for 2 weeks and during that time was somewhat out and about. Symptoms of a new illness presented in March, starting with a canker sore, and progressing to flu like symptoms. I noticed greenish/brown mucus and tooth pain and went to doctor for an anti-biotic (I think Bactrim). I took the antibiotic which seemed to clear up what I thought was a sinus infection but I still wasn't feeling better and my glands were very swollen (they still are too a degree).
554703 tn?1227501470 I was wondering what I may have my symptoms are as follows...Had chest pains , pain in either left or right arms during since 2004 along with light headed and dizziness, feelings of going to pass out. Numb spot on left thigh from time to time when I wake up in the am ,swollen feet when I sit for long periods of time, absent periods then a period that wouldnt stop for months and had to be reset my a gyno.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
