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 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 n tn I just noticed it yesterday when it started to itch. I am concerned since I understand that one of the symptoms of a cancerous mole is if it itches. Also, I have what looks to be some swelling around the anus, almost like a hemorrhoid but it isn't painful, it's just there. Should I be concerned? Do I see my gynocologist for this or a dermatologist?
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.

Avatar f tn Hi Miriam, Excessive sun exposure throughout life, people with many moles, fair skin, atypical moles, and the presence of a close relative who have had melanoma are at an increased risk to develop melanoma. A popular method for remembering the signs and symptoms of melanoma is the mnemonic ABCD: Asymmetrical skin lesion, Border of the lesion is irregular, Color: melanomas usually have multiple colors; Diameter: moles greater than 5 mm are more likely to be melanomas than smaller moles.

795414 tn?1240416459 Was worried that I may be having a stroke due to symptoms lasting so long. I just took it easy and slept as much as I could.
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.[9] Sometimes, the letter E (for Elevation) is added. Other warning signs are when a mole begins to crust over, bleed, itch, or becomes inflamed.That is when it happens spontaneously. In your case you have caused trauma which has resulted in the bleed.So it is not a warning sign. You can apply an anti-biotic ointment on it.

Avatar n tn Hi, did you developed the symptoms after stopping therapy with tizanidine or during tratment with tizanadine. Your symptoms are suggestive of hypertonia which is one of the withdrawl symptoms with this medicine as this drug may produce dependence. Tizanadine is muscle relaxant, acting at the level of brain and usually given in cases of back pain, spasms etc. It is unlikely to have stroke with this drug. But its withdrawl can cause muscle spasm or hypertonia.
Avatar f tn ll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
