Avatar n tn Should ever experience these symptoms collectively, get yourself to an ER immediately because some the damage done by a stroke can be reversed if anti-coagulants are administered within 3 - 4hrs of the clot developing. The anti-coagulant, in and of itself, is a potent drug, so the ER would thoroughly vet you before administering it--which will include a check-up by the neurologist on call. I'm not a doctor, but judging by your post, I doubt you're having a stroke...
Avatar f tn I had what they call a stroke - it was caused by burst aneurisms in my brain. It took 9 surgeries and finally a shunt in my head. That was September. What I want to know is, is it 'normal' to feel pressure and sometimes a 'giddy' feeling? Apparently my brain will take at least a year to 'heal'. I am doing really well, but my head feels this way, and my neck where the shunt tube goes swells.. I don't know about this head and I don't go back to the professor until September.

Avatar m tn I guess right now my biggest concern is identifying any latent symptoms/effects of a potential heat stroke 3 days ago. Her behaviour was normal for the 1st 24 hours or so after the walk...so i imagined nothing happened from the heat. Can someone help me? Is there anything visual or behaviour that can point to or rule out heat stroke damage?

So you are not alone. It is a damn struggle. I am thinking of going back to meditation. I used to meditate for many years and it really did help me get through a stressful life with career, study, divorce, being a single mum etc.
Avatar m tn He had the classic symptoms, the doc ran the CAT, MRI, Doppler on neck and so on.. He was told he had a small stroke and that the arteries in his neck were 35 to 50% blocked. He has been on plavix and blood thinners since... Since the doctor said he had a stroke, he usually would have small to medium spells where he would have the same symptoms as the first and the doc said must be TIA's..... Well he had a fairly large TIA 2 weeks ago, numbness in face, problems talking.
Avatar m tn Hi, Thank you for your question. Common symptoms after stroke could be unconsciousness, loss of vision, headache, eye and neck pain, seizures, paralysis, gait disturbances etc. It needs some days to recover completely as it depends upon severity also. Investigations like CT angiography, MRI, CSF examination (presence of blood) are essential to reach at diagnosis here. Neurosurgery is the mainstay of treatment that may be suggested by a neurologist after examination.
Avatar f tn Hi, My mom (49) apparently had a stroke last month; she had a few random symptoms--blurry vision, trouble with bright light, numbness and tingling in mouth, etc. As soon as she started blood thinners, her symptoms went away. The doctors said she had a stroke because an artery in her spinal cord was being squished by a bone in her neck. Has anyone else had this problem? The doctors say that surgery is inevitable. Are there any other options?
Avatar m tn I thought I was going to die my mouth was very dry and couldn't swallow. Ever since then I have all kinds of symptoms, stiffness of neck, dialated pupils, blood shot eyes, weakness and very fatigue. I also noticed a sharp pain in the left of my neck. I notice when I sit in a chair and try to multi task my symptoms comes back. I also notice sharp pains in my lower back when this happens. I have had a neuralogist do a mri and a mri with contrast and all came back normal.

Avatar m tn I am 41 yrs old and I just had a nuclear stress, echocardiogram, and a 24hr holter done. everything was negative. so I was fine, a friend of mine just had a massive stroke at 42 he is in a coma. What test do I need to take to prevent a stroke or the test I already took give an indication. They did run the echo up and down my neck why?
Avatar f tn Being that you have a history of HTN (high blood pressure), you are definitely at high risk for a TIA/Stroke. You could have possibly have had a TIA/Stroke. Secondly, with a blood pressure that elevated and symptoms, please go immediately to the ER; don't try to treat yourself at home; bad idea.
Avatar n tn I am a 49 yr old female, who smokes, no Hypertension or diabetes, I have had all symptoms of Stroke/TIA, I had radiating pain down L arm, numbing/tingling up L side of face, profuse sweating, dizziness, I also had slight pain across jaw, no weakness though, this has happened more than one time, all of my test come out negative, is that normal for a TIA that nothing shows? I am afraid that when or if I have a stroke, that will be it since everything comes up negative.
Avatar n tn My husband has experienced two such "episodes." I call them episodes because he had stroke symptoms that passed before any permanent damage was done. The two episodes were a year and a half apart. The most recent one was two weeks ago. Through online research, my husband discovered the Bowhunter's Stroke. No doctor has diagnosed it, but they have diagnosed the herniated disks in his neck. We are in the process of contacting the doctor with this new information.
473703 tn?1207761354 I was just hopeing that some one can tell me some of the symptoms of Ms. I was in the hospital due to stroke like symptoms spend a few days there and had many heart test done, come to find out that I did not have a stroke , well that's a good thing I thought. And then a Neuro came in to see me, and told me that on my MRI he had seen somethings that he was not happy with, He said I think you might have Ms, and that he wanted to do a few more test.
Avatar n tn I awoke in the morning with a pain in the left side of my neck which subsided within 5 minutes or so. The numbness in my left arm did not go away however. So I went to the ER that evening. There they did a CT scan of my head and did not find anything abnormal. The ER doctor chalked it up to bad side effects from the Maxalt which should go away on their own. He also said that I might have slept on my arm funny causing it to fall asleep.
500374 tn?1210075013 I didn't have a brainstem stroke, but I did have a stroke and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? Also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.

Avatar n tn MRI confirmed the stroke in my left Cerebellar section. The artery in left neck tore and caused the stroke. Had 3 MRI's; Head, Brain with and without contrast, Neck with and without contrast. I am recovery mode now. I feel dizzy. I have dizzy spells that come and go. I have trouble with conversations and speech. I can listen well, but it is hard sometimes to gather my thoughts and return speak answers to others in conversations. I saw the neurologist a couple of days ago.

Avatar m tn I had given up on my family doctor and just figured I would have to deal with this until I found another doctor. My symptoms were starting to increase to the point where I had constant neck problems. I've had a stiff neck for years but only on the left side. I had very frequent chest pains around where my heart is and oddly enough I would have tingling sensation in my left heel and sometime my left arm. I also had very intense headaches.
867582 tn?1311630997 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!!
