Stroke symptoms pupils

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms pupils


Avatar n tn If my symptoms were something serious my eye wouldn’t respond to light properly right? It’s just that I thought serious symptoms(like a stroke) were pretty much what I told you my symptoms are but I realize that pupils do respond differently (I know nothing about) and that it would be kind of weird to have a major problem right after my go around and it not be somehow connected to this.
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 hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), hypertension (high blood pressure), seizure activity, heart problems are all symptoms of stroke in cats.
Avatar n tn Dear Lore27, I would definitely recommend that you see an eyeMD to determine the difference in pupil size and evaluate your visual symptoms of eyelid twitch, and eyes. The cause cannot be determined over the internet without an eye examination. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
207091 tn?1337713093 Hi, I'm not really sure what the symptoms could be, but I honestly don't think it's seizures or a stroke. Seizures you would've noticed twitching and loss of bowel or urinary control. A stroke would've affected one side of the body only, and she wouldn't have recovered so quickly. This could be a thyroid problem, or diabetes. You can try taking her food away for 6-8 hrs so she'll be ready to get tested for diabetes as soon as you get to the vet's office.
Avatar f tn I have Factor V blood clotting disorder so they were worried about a TIA or stroke, but I didn't exhibit any other symptoms and I was already taking Lovenox shots post-op. After a CT, MRI & MRA, everything came back normal and I was sent home. My pupils have finally equalized (took about 3 days) but I've been experiencing bad headaches every day since then. Could this have really been a TIA and should I worry about something bigger?
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.
Avatar n tn My father had a similar sounding stroke on Dec. 8, 2006. He seemed pretty alert, spoke well, could swallow, etc. His major problems were left side paralysis and double vision. After about three weeks, he took his first steps and within 2 weeks of that was walking 40 feet with a walker. He was not able to start moving his left hand until about 4 weeks in. At that point, he could move all fingers and make a loose fist.
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 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 My sister-in-law had a hemorrhagic stroke with a intracerebral hemorrhage. This was on May 18th. They have done a Ventriculostomy. The gas man found her in the driveway. We figure it had been somewhere between 20-35 mins. before she was found. They have her in a medically induced coma where they say she will stay for the next 3-4 weeks. Is this normal? Also, they did a cat scan on the 18th, and 19th and we were told the bleeding had stopped.

Avatar n tn I have an appt on MAy 10th for a visual field test- should I order a pressure check too? I also have been experiencing symptoms of DVT- could that be a contributing factor? The doc said it wasn't an emergency w/ my eyes- but munb eyeballs are not normal for inflammed sinuses- do you agree? Should I push for an earlier exam? I'm scared I will loose my eyesight- it is extremly scary to wake up and not feel your eyeball and to see it sooo big ! Am I being too overly concerned?
Avatar f tn Many of the early symptoms of methanol poisoning are non-specific eg. headache, dizziness, malaise, generalized weakness, altered sensorium, acute mania, and paresthesias.
Avatar n tn If you didn't have the spine imaged, you should talk to your doc as MS can show up there too. Hypothyroidism can certainly be a cause of your symptoms. Once treated adequately, your symptoms may improve. Another test that may be helpful is an EMG to see if this a problem of your peripheral nerves. Laboratory workup such as ANA, sed rate, blood count and electrolye profile can also help rule out other potential problems such as lupus and other rheumatological disorders.
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 This weekend, we repeated the drill- 12 hours in ER, with no answers. New symptoms this week are very dilated pupils, (they asked if she'd been to the eye doctor, they are that dilated) and today, the entire length of her tongue is numb down the center. The area we live in sees a lot of young people with drug problems, so the ER docs. always assume she is one of those- until they see her list of meds and history. Does anyone have any ideas or ideas to share? I'd be eternally grateful!
Avatar f tn Let's see I just spent 4 days in the hospital, my dx.
Avatar n tn When he leaves in the morning and comes back home one or two in the morning his mouth is dry, he doesn't have an appetite, he talks excessively, and has trouble sleeping at night. So are these symptoms of heroin use and if not what are the symptoms.

Avatar n tn It does sound like you had at least a TIA (trans ischemic attack or small stroke). I had my first stroke in 1988 and your symptoms sound very similar. I had a severe headache one night and tinnitus (ringing in the ear) started developing the next day. Within 2 weeks I was completely deaf in one ear and the headpain had increased to beyond the 1-10 scale range. It was blinding. Evidence of this stroke was compelling on the MRI. The second stroke I had was in 1995.
Avatar n tn About 5 weeks ago I woke up one morning and had a sudden strange headache in the forehead region. Both my pupils appeared to be quite dilated. My pupils went back to normal after about 15 minutes and the headache pain turned into a general headache that went away after I took some tylenol a few hours later. Since then I have had some head pains that are daily maybe 3-4 times a day. The pain is very local, sometimes sudden and usually only occur in 3 different spots in my head.
Avatar n tn I got so weak after losing 15 pounds dr's all thought it wa sthat at first..but my head pressure and severe weakness, stroke like symptoms in my jaw felt as though i wa shavinga stroke joke..

Avatar m tn Tightness in my neck on the left side and numbness on the left side of my face, I often freak out thinking I'm having a stroke because I feel like the left side of my mouth is drooping. I have a weak pulse and feel like there is something in my throat and sometimes like my throat is closing over, I often feel like I can't breath properly. I have an implanon rod (which I am going to get removed soon) do you think these feelings could be linked?
Avatar f tn I would love to get some opinions on whether what I'm experiencing sounds like migraines! I'm a 29-year-old mother of 3 who is is in good health other than these bizarre symptoms. I don't take any medications other than a multivitamin and an Omega 3 supplement. I don't smoke. I drink socially (3 drinks a week approx.) and I drink about 2 cups of coffee or tea a day. I had my first classic migraine in 2006 when my first child was a baby.
Avatar n tn Those victims who are 'lucky' enough to realise initially that something is unusually wrong, those who are lucky enough to have access to a computer, those who are 'lucky' enough to have had such serious adverse effects that a visit to the doctor was impossible (ie, those who had bad zaps etc) and so did an internet search that day to see what would cause such symptoms (thinking it was the onset of stroke, or brain tumour) - THOSE VICTIMS are the ones who are bringing the information in the
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 n tn For several months last year, I had a variety of stroke like symptoms, numbness/tingling, memory loss, migraines, etc. I went to 3 Neurologists including 2 MS specialists and the only concrete diagnosis was "Complicated Migraine." I started Topamax 50 mg./2x daily in October 2005. The Lyme tests were negative and none of my doctors felt that a rash which I had since May 2005 meant any significance, until I went to a dermatologist in November 2005.
