Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms neck pain


Avatar n tn Should there be immediate attention to pain that began few days ago in or on right side of my neck, now at top right side of head with shooting pain with movement, touch and application of pressure. I suffer with sinus infections often, this feels somewhat different.
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 n tn She has had no major health problems, only a history of tubal ligation, allergy to codeine, and what we believed to be hypoglycemic episodes in combination with a variety of small vague symptoms which i believed to possibly be Fibromyalgia. She sometimes complains of neuropathy type pain in her hands and feet. Her blood sugar has bottomed out, causing some slurred speech and lethargy, but after providing some nutrition she has returned to her norm.
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 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 n tn I also had a cold feeling in my left hand down to my fingertips. 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.

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.
Avatar f tn I have had this horrible and sometimes truly debilitating pain in my neck - left side right in the middle - for a very long time. In the beginning it was accompanied by numbness & tingling which has subsided. I figured it was a pinched nerve, but because of the numbness especially in my face, my primary doctor wouldn't see me and sent me to the ER (thinking stroke). of course, no stroke and ER said pinched serve - see Neuro. Neuro said NO pinched nerve.
Avatar n tn pain in neck. For awhile i thought the pain i get in the left side (mainly) of my neck was serious too. but Dr's checked my arteries and they are fine. my Doctor says it's muscle spasms and he's probably right. i do have problems with spasms due to neck and lower back problems. so it's mostly muscles but try relaxing, heat and maybe even an aspirin. good luck.
Avatar f tn This can occur spontaneously in people with certain conditions that affect the blood vessels, after neck trauma, or after chiropractic manipulation of the neck. The pain is often but not always associated with some sort of neurologic deficit as a dissection can often lead to a stroke. A dissection is diagnosed with a specific type of MRI test (MRA with fat saturation) or an CT angiogram. I highly suggest you have vessel imaging performed to rule out dissection.

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 n tn Hello, For the past 5 years i have been suffering with extremely uncomfortable pain around the sides of my neck, i have seen numerous doctors and specialists, the original symptoms included constant frontal headaches with muscle stiffness to the neck, on my first visit to the Doctor he subscribed me with some tablets (i have since forgotten the name), which did not appear to help in anyway, he then sent me to see a neurologist for whom referred me to have an MRI scan on my head, which came bac
Avatar f tn precipitation of head pain by neck movement or awkward neck positions, head pain when external pressure is applied to the neck or occipital region, restricted range of motion of the neck, and neck, shoulder and arm pain. Treatment for cervicogenic headache includes physical therapy, medications. Another type is occipital neuralgia.

Avatar n tn I should take Dolan for the neck pain and weakness. I think it makes me nervous and causes tremor which symptoms I already had before the medicine. Doctors have suggestedted many diagnoses, not very seriously. They don't want to clear up the situation. Polymyalgia, vasculitis myasthenia gravis, TIA, otosclerosis ?? They say that the neck weakness does not result from hyperparathyroidism. What is the cause for it?

Avatar m tn I thought I was having a stroke and could barely make it to the door. I screamed in pain as my entire left side shook, cramped and basically just exploded. It felt as if someone had taken a hook and hooked an artery behind my left eye and pulled it out, jerking the nerve right down to my left fingers with it. The pain disappeared after 30 seconds and I went to bed. It took me weeks to forget the pain. In the first year it happened once a year. Then the next year 3-4 times.
