Stroke symptoms pupils

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms pupils


Avatar f tn I used to work in the Optholomgly field and I have seen patients compalin about their pupils. You pupils can become large when you have had a stroke. If this is not a normal thing I would get this checked out right away. Because it can affect your vison and health.
Avatar f tn While recovering in the hospital, I started having pain behind my right eye and when I looked in the mirror, I noticed the right pupil was slightly dilated. I mentioned it to the nurse, but she did not know what it was. I am still having these symptoms nearly two weeks later. I was checked out by an optometrist who noticed the dilation but said that everything else seemed normal. A quick internet search of this topic is enough to freak me out!
Avatar f tn My daughter was running in a cross country meet after having a cold all week and taking cold medicine. During the race her pupils became extremely small; she was not sweating; hands and feet numb and white, and her heart rate was really high. She had to stop. Does it mean oxygen deprivation? Did the cold meds do this? The pupils are what really scared me.
Avatar m tn Hi, its difficult to tell the exact prognosis. As the post stroke swelling subsides she may recover function. But now all depends on if her vitals are stable or not. As she is improving and if the "stroke" is stabilized, and there is no further bleeding or clotting I would remain optimistic. Regards.
468973 tn?1212323520 Hi there. The difference in pupil size can have a cause pertaining to the eye itself or to the brain. You usually see difference in the size of pupils called 'anisocoria' in severe cases of stroke with impending brain herniation (I really really doubt that you are in this same situation). Pupils can be normally unequal in a significant portion of the population and may be no cause of concern. A difference of 1 or 2mm may be normal.
Avatar n tn hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), hypertension (high blood pressure), seizure activity, heart problems are all symptoms of stroke in cats.
Avatar m tn I am a 32 year old female. I am in school and a few weeks ago I was trying to sleep during the day since I had clinical at night, I put on an eye mask. When I took the eye mask off it hurt my right eye. The vision was blurry for about 5 minutes, but came back to normal, but than I noticed my right pupil dilated more than the left. It was like for about a day and then went back to normal. Now it is two weeks later and it is doing it again.
Avatar m tn I went to do the doctor today becuase I have been having really weird symptoms. My blood pressure was sky high, so they put me on medicine. During the exam she said my pupils were different sizes and she was slightly concerned. Of course I googled it and all I see is brain tumor. Can high blood pressure cause pupil sizes to be different?
Avatar f tn I'm a 31 year old woman with epilepsy, hypothyroidism, hypertension, left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (with LOTS of edema, a damaged spine, poly cystic ovarian syndrome and fibromyalgia. Now some very odd symptoms have begun to occur. One morning a few days ago, I woke up practically unable to walk...I've been a belly dancer for 16 years. My balance and coordination have been a pride of mine. Well, this time I fell, and caught myself against the wall with my forehead.
Avatar n tn I went to my OD today due to uneven pupils. They are not constantly uneven, but it is always the same pupil that is smaller when it happens. OD diagnosed me with Horner's Syndrome, but she said that I only have a mild case because I have no other symptoms other than the pupil. (i don't have issues with lack of flushing/sweating on that side and my eyelid is not drooping). She asked me if I had injured my neck or had neck surgery, which I had not.
Avatar m tn Took him to the vet who did some checks and he said he looked like he was blind virtually 100% as his pupils were dilating only very small amounts, so they were still huge discs when light was shown in them. All week he’s been not wanting to eat and just lying on a bed on the floor, not wanting to get up or jump up at all. This morning he ate all his breakfast and jumped up on to the bed and his pupils were perfectly normal and he can see??!
Avatar n tn if you are you could be in danger of seizure activty in the brain or a will shake but not the whole body..unleess you are withdraljing from a benzo then yes your whole body will shake and the inside and out.. GET CHECKED OUT..
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor and she said I was fine, and that although I was experiencing acute symptoms, I did not have a stroke, yet how can she be sure? All she did was look at my pupils and test my strength and reaction. Where were these symptoms stemming from if in fact I did not have a stroke? My arms occasionally still have soreness and weakness sensations which were not there before.
Avatar n tn Sometime in their he had some strokes.My question with his unresponsive pupils,whats his future?Will his pupils become normal? He had little movement on his left side but can blink his eyes when they are opened.
Avatar f tn My 9 yr old cat suddenly has a difference in the size of his pupils. He is eating and acting ok so far. I have noticed alot of twitching in his tail when he is resting. Anyone else experienced this?
Avatar f tn Both pupils being dilated sounds more like a medication reaction or the anxiety. Pupils being dilated from a tumor, stroke, etc. are almost always just one pupil. You should certainly mention it to your dr. next time you go in, or if you continue to notice them being dilated, you should go in just to get a clean bill of health. You can also call your doctors office and leave word with the nurse and see what the doctor would like to do.
Avatar f tn Hello, About 2 months ago on July 8th, I started experiencing a fullness feeling in my head and my pupils became dilated, I have been experiencing these symptoms more or less consistently for the past 7 weeks. I think I recall (but I am not sure) I heard a pop in my head while eating dinner that night and then the symptoms followed after that. I have also had a lot of fatigue, changes in mood and started becoming depressed.
Avatar m tn I just woke up and found my cat lying on the floor. She is foming at the mouth, unresponsive to touch, her pupils dont dilate when exposed to light, her breathing is quick and shallow, she's barely moving and cant hold herself up.
Avatar f tn No he did not have a stroke. We are well aware of those signs, and he does not exhibit any of the classic signs. The right pupil reacts to light and works like it is supposed to. the left one is open and does not react to the light. He said his vision was blurry straight down the left side. Either way he is going to the doctors as soon as they open in the morning. And yes my choice was for him to go to the ER this afternoon when he told me about it.
973422 tn?1247938726 when i looked in the mirror i couldnt focus i looked blurry like i needed glasses and i also had all the previous symptoms. my pupils were larger then usual and my husband said i didnt look myself and my eyes where trying to work seperatly. when this happens i almost feel like im having a heart attack and im dying. I have had palputations for a long time but this has never happened.
Avatar m tn I noticed the left side of my face felt stiff / tight. I looked in the mirror, check my pupils, stuck my tongue out and everything seemed normal. I put an icepack neck to my ear because sometimes when I was opening my mouth it felt like the left jaw joint was popping. It wasn't painful but annoying. I started having back and neck problems earlier this year too but my OCD makes my fixate on it and think its something serious.
Avatar f tn My 17 yr. old male cat starting showing some strange symptoms recently, and rather suddenly. He stopped going up and down stairs, stopped getting on the furniture, seems to have weakness or lack of coordination in his hind legs, paces, does not meow, purr or groom. We took him to the vet and after an examination the vet felt he had high blood pressure and that he appeared blind. She could not get his eyes to respond to light. She put him on medication and took blood and urine samples.
Avatar f tn Was there anything I could have done to prevent it. When she was first brought in the doctor noticed one of her eye pupils was smaller than the other. Could this have been prevented if she had a ct scan. Gve so many un answered questions. Please help me understand this.
1492418 tn?1289149263 I feel so much better having asked, my anxiety issues always take me straight to stroke, etc and I can't google symptoms or I am in bigger trouble.
Avatar f tn I had a CT scan which showed no evidence of intracranial hemorrhage, acute stroke or intracranial mass legion. The CT did show mild white matter loss in the supratentorial brain. The soonest I'm able to get an appointment with a neurologist is in two weeks. I'm worried that I could have an unruptured aneurysm and am especially concerned because my aunt died of an aneurysm when she was 35. Wondering if I should go the ER and ask for an MRI or MRA or just wait until my appointment.
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.
Avatar f tn after seizure activity she wakes up scared and dont recognize any one and becomes combative,before the seizures start her pupils will dialate and she gets very confused, she loses her speach abilaty and eye sight, and almost looks like a stroke her right side of her face will droop and looses functions for hours, she has said the pain in her head is almost unbarable we realy need help!!
Avatar m tn t react properly to anything. The most I could do was look in her pupils with a light, they seem to be equal and reactive, perhaps slightly more sluggish than human pupils I don't know if that's normal or not. I think it's highly unlikely that she could have gotten into any poison or drug around here, but then again who knows... What could possibly be wrong with her?
