Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms mayo clinic


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.

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...
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 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 Hey all, Well I am still at Mayo clinic in MN. They did confirm a stroke and did a TEE--to look at my heart. Today I have neuropsych testing due to memory and change in personality issues. Then Tues I see my Neurologist again. I sure hope we get some road to take....thinking of you all.
Avatar f tn Her current neurologists has said that if he can't find a way to help her within six months, he will write her a referral to the Mayo clinic or Shands teaching hospital. Then our insurance company will have to cover it. The saga conyinues...
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 I had the same cough & 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!
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 Started in Nov and ruled out vision with eye doc, ruled out sinus infection, so then to general doc, referred to cardiologist. Ended up at Mayo Clinic in MN for 2 weeks of testing. Cardiac exams and tests all normal: included 24 hour BP monitor, 24 hr holter monitor EKG, standard EKG, both treadmill stress plus dobutamine stress test and two echocardiograms - all normal.
Avatar n tn Then had a mri of spine and brain- all normal. Then a spinal tap- normal again. Doc suggested either Mayo clinic or a chicago university. I went to a hospital in chicago and repeated blood and emg. They told me I was fine and showed no signs of neuropathy and that if the docs office was cold it could have thrown off the test(im glad i spent 2000.00 on a test for no reason).
98474 tn?1240108874 I thought maybe if I went to Mayo, they would do tests until they came to some conclusion. I am interested to hear from people that have gone to Mayo Clinic because I am about to go down that road. Thanks for reading this long post.
Avatar f tn I have gone to just about any kind of doc you can think of and even to the Mayo Clinic....what a joke that was.....and no I am not laughing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have you had any MRI's or nerve conduction testing or anything??
Avatar n tn My neurologist is stumped and suggested i go to the mayo clinic or a major chicago university for further testing. i have been put on neurontin which helps a lot. I still cannot exercise in any way and i cannot walk for a long time without sitting down for a awhile. I am frustrated beyond belief and do not know where to go from here. I have yet to seek further testing due to frustration, expense, and lack of any more vacation time at work.
Avatar n tn If I were you I'd consider going to the Clevland clinic or The Mayo where hopefully you'll get answers that satisfy you. If your problem turns out to be muscoloskeletal you'll need to fix it yourself under the direction of a good physical therapist-- but at one of these clinics your medical qustions should be answered. You were told by the forum doc it does not sound like ALS. they'll say the same thing again, most likely.
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 Its months before I can get in to see the Rheumatologist so my doctor is trying to send me to Mayo clinic. Any suggestions? I am a bit concerned about the persistant IGM and IGG levels as this could be a problem with the bone marrow??
Avatar f tn 3 times I've gotten close to/had what i thought was heat stoke, but after doing some reading on mayo clinic I wonder if I'm mistaken. I feel no heat, i sweat but only slightly, and if I speak too loudly or say something to long winded my vision goes black and I collapse. The last one happens only once (probably because I am smart enough to get out of the heat after) and is so instant that I don't even finish collapsing before i catch myself.

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 n tn I would look into a major center like Cleveland Clinic or Mayo Clinic if you can. They know what they are doing and it's your health. If anyone knows anything about the effect of aldosterone on a fetus please let me know. I am too young to not have kids and not ready to go through this dangerous surgery. Currently my symptoms are controlled on an aldosterone receptor blocker. I have also seen a homeopath and naturopath who have made great suggestions.
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).
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.
Avatar n tn 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. The symptoms/story you describe is not classic for any particular disorder, and thus your evaluation needs to be taken to the next level to evaluate for less common diseases. It would be uncommon for multiple sclerosis (MS) to present in this way.
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.
