Avatar f tn Hello My husband has been suffering from something for 3 years now. There are many symptoms and I'm hoping someone can offer some insight as to what he should be asking and what he should be tested for. My hubby is 34 with no remarkable medical history. He used anabolic steroids briefly back in college.. That's about it. The onset of symptoms began about 3.5 years ago w the birth of our first son. Every couple of months he'd come down w flu like symptoms.
Avatar f tn You are on the right track for treating a sprain. The mnemonic RICE is used for treatment of injuries Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Ice is used to decrease swelling of the inure. Be careful with the ace bandage, you don't want to wrap too tight and cut off circulation. Hope this helps.
987762 tn?1331027953 Hey Guys and Dolls, I stumbled over a book whilst trying to work out if there was even a remote posibility that all symptoms could be from something other than neurological, cant help a gal for trying lol. Anyway, I thought it might be of interest to others(limbo landers or dx) its called ' Physical medicine and rehabilitation secrets By Bryan O'Young, Mark A. Young, Steven A. Stiens ' . Its very easy to read as an example: 41. What are the clinical features of cerabellar disease?

Avatar f tn I am not trying to scare you but a stroke is rather serious. Do some research and if you think the symptoms match up force her to see a doctor. whether she believes in them or not this could save her from having a more serious stroke, which could do anything from paralyzing one side of the body or even death. I'm sorry to scare or worry. As I said, I may be wrong, this is only a best guess from a college student, who works with children and took a first aid and cpr course.
Avatar m tn Certain medical conditions need to be considered like a transient ischemic attack, stroke, alzheimer’s disease and depression. Once stroke and TIA are ruled out, she may be assessed by a psychiatrist depending on the protocols in the hospital. Take care.
Avatar f tn Has anybody experienced stroke symptoms? All day Saturday my left arm was kinda numb and tingling and the that night out of no where the tingling went up my neck to my face, my lips and tongue went numd, got hot and my heart was beating fast...laid down and it went away.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.
Avatar f tn stopping alcohol intake can improve the ataxia but if it is severe, some permanent symptoms may remain. In patients with cerebellar stroke, with intensive physical and occupational therapy over weeks to months, symptoms may become minimal and may even resolve completely.

Avatar n tn Many owners confuse the symptoms of a stroke in humans to a stroke in dogs. In fact, they are quite different.
Avatar m tn Like if an area of the brain is affected, it causes certain results peripherally. In the absence of this, it is difficult to say that the symptoms are due to TIA or stroke. Many times with TIAs the imaging studies do not pick up any positive findings. If your symptoms persist or recur consult your doctor. Regards.
Avatar n tn There would not be any evidence of stroke in her bloodwork. Who told you that? You look at the signs and symptoms. Not the darned bloodwork and MRI. I would have had your internists licence...well I'll stop...let's just say he was working abiove his pay grade and should have referred you to a stroke center instantly. Who told you "there is no evidence of stroke"? Obviously he recieved medical training in lower Ghana, and served in internship in Nigeria.
Avatar n tn The next day he woke up with the same symptoms as the stroke 6 years ago and we assumed he had another stroke. The MRI, CTScan shows no new stroke, but his symptoms continue and he doesn't seem to be getting much better. He has lost his job due to the memory loss issues. Any thoughts on what could have happened? We are seeing a neuropsychologist.
Avatar n tn A basic reference chart used for consumers to spot suspicious moles is found in the mnemonic, A-B-C-D. The letters stand for Asymmetry, Border, Color and Diameter. Sometimes, the letter E (for Elevation) is added. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, if a mole starts changing in size, color, shape or, especially, if the border of a mole develops ragged edges or becomes larger than a pencil eraser, it would be an appropriate time to consult with a physician.

If a mole reflects any of the following characteristics then you should immediately get it evaluated. Other warning signs include a mole, even if smaller than a pencil eraser, that is different than the others and begins to crust over, bleed, itch, or becomes inflamed.

867582 tn?1311627397 Hi, MSers, I think its' so interesting that not long after I visited the ER with stroke symptoms (which the ER MD thought could be MS) I received the MSAA's summer edition of their magazine, "The MSAA Motivator" in which in their "Ask The Doctor" section they discussed "can MS Lesions Mimic a Stroke?" It's almost like they were speaking directly to me!!
