Stroke symptoms pupils

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms pupils


Avatar f tn Today i feel cool sensations in my head and my eyes feel like they are irritated.
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 n tn For example a brain tumor or stroke is either there or not, it causes symptoms which will not go away unless the underlying cause is removed. I thinkmit is a good idea to have this checked out but there is probably no great reason for concern.
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 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.

1320688 tn?1274499073 Hello My son was just diagnosed with Horner's Syndrome. The test showed his pupils dilated but were not equal. As the doctor said, It's not congenital because his pupils are same in color. He also keeps his neck tilted to one side (kind of like wry neck). Both problems have been present since birth. What could be some of the underlying problems for Horner's Syndrome? And is there any connection between Horner's Syndrome and wry neck?
Avatar f tn A few days ago I noticed my left pupil is considerably smaller than the right. I have pretty significant vision changes including blurred vision and occasional double vision. Then there have been at least 4 times now that I have had a black blob show up in my left eye that blocks almost all vision for a few seconds. My vision feels like it wants to fade to greyish unless I really force my eyes wide open. Some left eye pain, not severe, but discomfort.

Avatar f tn My pupils have been hurting a lot this week - thought it was b/c I missed a paxil dose, but now thinking it's a new symptom of sub. withdrawal, and the missed paxil dose (and starting it up again) only added to the problem. Other symptoms this weeks since tapering down to .5 mg of sub and 1.5-1.75 mg of xanax = headaches headaches headaches - partially sinus, partially b/c of dialated pupils and of course withdrawals.

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.
1706601 tn?1307731641 I am a 27 year old female who had a stroke in 2008. I then developed RSD in my left side. It spread all over the body where now I feel I am on fire every day and nothing seems to help. My last eye apt was two weeks ago and the eye dr. said I have enequal pupils. He is sending me to will eye hospital in philadelphia pa for further testing. Lately I have had alot of pressure and pain in my head,mainly behind my left eye. My emg came up as no seizures but slow eye frontal movement.
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 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.
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 m tn Hello my symptoms started two months ago, I was in a passenger seat of a vehicle and was smoking canabis. I noticed my blood pressure seemed high and I was talking really fast and I felt a burst in my head followed by a thunderclap like headache. 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.
Avatar f tn Hi there. Unequal pupils or anisocoria can be caused by many causes like migraines, horner’s syndrome, third cranial nerve damage and adie’s pupil. Horner’s syndrome is caused by damage to oculosympathetic nerve causing the eyelid to remain open and pupil being unusually small and doesn’t respond immediately in areas that suddenly darken. Causes of Horner syndrome can be stroke or tumor.
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 hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), hypertension (high blood pressure), seizure activity, heart problems are all symptoms of stroke in cats.
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.
