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 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.
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 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.
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 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.
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 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 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 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 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 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.
Avatar n tn hello I am a 24 yr old male an I have some rather alarming symptoms Ive been experiencing. Ive been having sharp pains in the sides an back of my head, I sometimes get short bouts of dizziness and Ive noticed when I get the dizziness that my pupils are irregularly sized (one is significantly smaller then the other, always the left being smaller). Is this just a coincidence that these are all occurring or are these all symptoms of something ? should I be concerned ?
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 m tn Tissue plasminogen activator (TPA), needs to be given within 4.5 hours after stroke symptoms, this restores the blood supply to the affected part. Now he should be on aspirin and nerve medications like Lyrica to quiet down the inflammation. Any risk factors like diabetes and hypertension need to be controlled. And he should continue with his physical therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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 The only thing the emergency room doctor thought could have caused the dilation was somehow I touched the pill, touched my eye (maybe putting in a contact) and the stimulant dilated my pupils. Is that even plausible? Also, while there was no sign of a stroke, could this have been a TIA...though I had no other symptoms? I am seeing a neuro-opthamologist in 10 days, the earliest he could see me. How worried should I be?
Avatar f tn I have dilated pupils (unreactive, very large) causing sensitivity to light, impaired vision, constant headache, fatigue, muscle spasm, slurred speach, pins and needles (numbness), confusion. Please help. I had a stroke when I was 19. My eyes have been tested, this is not caused by an eye problem. Had a CT and MRI, They can't seem to find anything wrong. This is however not going away, it is just getting worse. I have an appointment with a Neurologist in November.
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 f tn and the second actually passing out twice combined with chest pain, thready pulse, sensitive to light, cold extremities, dilated pupils, followed by bad headache. The dilated pupils, bad headache and tiredness lasting 4 days after each episode. Cardiologist diagnosed "vasovagal syncope" - involuntary reflex to feint. Any ideas what could cause the "electric shocks" to right hand side of head. Could the two different incidents be related?
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 m tn When this ended, she started having excruciating pain down her neck and arms, and her hands are numb. Sunday her vision started blurring, and now she cannot make out anything. Her pupils are completely dialated, and won't return to normal, even when a light shines in her eyes. On top of all that, her eyes now look "wall eyed" or turned out slightly. We have taken her to 3 ER's now, and all have pretty much said she's after drugs and do nothing.
Avatar n tn My 84 year old Grandmother just suffered a massive stroke and is in a coma/resting state, been in this state for 3 days now. It effected the whole right hemisphere and a part of the left. She has also lost movement on her left side. The first day she ws in this coma she ws moving her body a lot probably because they gave her a medication by the name of PHENERGAN she was allergic to. The second day she started trying to talk kind of groaning.
