Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms mca


Avatar n tn Mom, age 55, had a stroke 2 weeks ago affecting her right MCA territory. She has a 100% occluded right carotid artery. Luckily, she only has left leg paralysis, but this morning she had left facial numbness and we went back to the hospital. They are saying it was a TIA. My question is, does this mean she will have another stroke, or is it just an after effect from the first one? And, does this mean her risks for suffering another stroke will be greater?
4316751 tn?1352700514 I have had 3 brain surgeries. I have MoyaMoya. I had a STA-MCA bypass then 3 months later I had ruptured aneurysm in my brain. This was about 4 years ago. I also have a stable aneurysm in my brain. Well about 9 months ago I would wake up from a sleep and hear music. Its like actual music. Like sometimes it sounds as if its the local country or christian music station. But I cant find where it is coming from. Its usually soothing music.
Avatar f tn An ischemic stroke involving left MCA. Have you consulted any neurologist so far? Your symptoms can also be related to some peripheral nerve pathology. I think you should consult a physician and a neurologist to further evaluate your symptoms. Keep me informed about your disease progression. A MRI scan or CT scan of brain is essential in your initial work up. Hope this helps. Bye.
Avatar n tn Hi Sheldon, Your symptomatology suggest that you might have suffered or suffering from TIA involving right MCA. You have done CT scan already, which is reported normal. I feel if your symptoms are suggestive, if there is positive clinical examination and there high suspicion of TIA by your PCP, then I think you should be started on Aspirin. CT scan always does not detect a bleed or clot. Investigations like CBC, PT/PTT needs to be done to evaluate the etiology of TIA.
Avatar f tn A CT scan was non specific, an MRI showed a massive stroke originating in the MCA decimating the basal ganglia, entire caudate and lentiform areas of the brain. She followed this first stroke with a hemorragic stroke further damaging the brain. Another point of interest is that your neck/head pain could possibly be migraine. Migraines come in different shapes and forms. Not just the I've got a migraine, I need to lay down for a while type. Migraine is linked to an increased risk of stroke.
Avatar m tn Blood work including glucose levels and Thyroid tests normal. EKG normal. She had a L MCA stroke at birth w/ seizures for 2 days, R side weakness for 1 year; now without residual effects. No official diagnosis at this time by Neurology....they point to anxiety/stress. Psychiatry eval's x2 have r/o anxiety and panic. Looking for avenues to research to find a diagnosis and treatment.
Avatar n tn 2 weeks later i had a massive stroke. (right side of brain, MCA, left side impacted) now over a year later i'm still having issues.
Avatar n tn Hi, Stroke is developing loss of brain function due to disturbances in the blood vessels supplying the brain, which can be a result of lack of blood supply due to blockage by thrombosis or emboli or due to hemorrhage. The symptoms of stroke are related to the anatomical location of damage.Stroke affecting one of the three CNS pathways- the spinothalamic tract, corticospinal tract and dorsal column results in hemiplegia (weakness on one side of the body), muscle weakness of face, and numbness.

Avatar n tn Well, could be three things. First of all, just that you've still okay after a year and a half is good news. And of course I assume the obvious didn't happen back Christmas over a year ago, where you banged your head right there. Sometimes the findings you report from the scans DO suggest you may have a bit of a swollen artery, but not blocked or burst, because THEN you would have vsion problems, a huuge huge headache, and you might pass out.
Avatar m tn The study enrolled patients who had 70 to 90 % narrowing of the arteries in the brain and had already experienced a mild stroke or a stroke-like event called a TIA ...... The scientist expected the stent to decrease the risk of stroke in patients also receiving aggressive medical management by 35% over two years. Instead 14.7% of patients who received the Gateway-Wingspan stenting system had a second stroke or died compared with the 5.8% who only took medication and modified their lifestyle.
Avatar n tn on February 23rd I had a craniotomy to repair a non ruptured anuerysm located on the MCA behind my left eye. 6 months later I still have a headache everyday and trouble falling asleep. I am currently under the care of a neurologist. He prescribes different pills to try to help but so far I do not have any relief. Also 5 weeks and 1 day after surgery, the neurosurgeon dismissed me and told me to go back to doing whatever I was doing prior to surgery.
Avatar n tn Also, infections preceded both the onset of chest symptoms in '94 and exacerbation of chest symptoms and onset of new symptoms in '99. I think my illness sounds like an autoimmune disease (infections/hormonal influence), and autoimm. diseases do run in my mom's family including MS. But I don't see how one could have all these symptoms with autoimmune auton. neuropathy. I appreciate any insight at all you can give me.
Avatar n tn My name is Angela, I am a 29 year old mom and wife. I recently got an MRI because of some vague physical symptoms I'd been having (bodily tingling, nightmares, headache). Honestly, I was expecting to be told I had an anxiety disorder, which I think I do. But what the MRI showed is even more distressing to me.
Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?
Avatar n tn Posted by kd on April 30, 1999 at 09:40:03 Hi. Thanks for this opportunity. As you can see, I have a couple of different questions. 1. I have a hx of classical migraine. I also have a left common cartoid that is completely occluded after carotid endarterectomy/carotid-aortic graft. Dopplars show that the right common, external, and internal carotids are becoming occluded to the extent that surgery was being considered. I was sent to a neurologist after some apparent TIAs.
Avatar n tn I have a 7mm mca aneurysm and I am waiting for my second meeting with a neurosurgeon. Over the last six weeks I have had a fluid rushing sound in the back of my neck at the base of my skull. No vision changes, no headache at that time just a sound I hear that makes me nervous and lasts for between 1 and 3 seconds. I have also been getting headaches for about three weeks now and have never had headaches in my life but did recently start taking 10 mg of Lexapro.
Avatar n tn ) type symptoms for HOURS until they subside...sometimes hycosamine will work...sometimes 4 tums...and once and a while nothing but time cures it.....I have been told IBS....and intestinal intussusuption (found on two CT scans)diverticulitis...then I started to read up on Sphinter of Oddi syndrome...and it was like I was reading stories NOT from others suffering from it...but like I had written them myself....
