Stroke symptoms shaking
Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms shaking
hi, my mum is 77 years old, has had a couple of suspected t.i.a's (mini strokes) and also suffers from chronic kidney disease/diabetes type 2/c.o.p.d. She recently had a CT scan to check for stroke damage and has been told she has severe vascular disease causing mini strokes (possibly?) - but can the symptoms include shaking?
I had a Stroke 30yrs. ago and after 5-10yrs. I began with a slight shaking in my left hand, the one side that was paralyzed. It has increased over the years to the point that I can't use this hand at all. I have brought it to the attention of my doctor and she tried to say it was because I didn't use my muscles to exercise more.
When I was a teenager I had what they called a "mini-stroke" couldnt move either side of my body, severe pain, terrible headache. Besides a slightly crooked smile I fully recovered with the help of a naturopath. Since then I have had two episodes where it feels like my brain is shaking/vibrating. While it happens I cant focus my eyes, my balance is off and I have to hold on to stay standing. It lasts probably less than a minute and leaves me with a slight headache.
2 /12 years agao my step-father began having stroke-like symptoms. He lost his balance, stopped walking, began choking when swallowing, etc.
He went to 2 different neurologists, both id MRI's and neither found anything. Both had the same conclusion, its degenerative, one said maybe hereutary, go home and die.
Last month, he began having swelling in his face and arms. He had a chest x-ray and found a lump. He was diagnosed with Small-cell lung cancer.
and they concluded that maybe my HRT is causing stroke like symptoms and possibly a small blood clot. That I needed to stop taking the estradiol and get an apt. with my gyno. I have to mention I've had other symptoms coming and going that I'm seeing a nuerologist about, but this is the first mention that it could be hormone related. So, since Sunday I haven't taken my estradiol, except this morning I took 1/2 a pill. I was taking 2 1/2 a day.
Like if an area of the brain is affected, it causes certain results peripherally. In the absence of this, it is difficult to say that the symptoms are due to TIA or stroke. Many times with TIAs the imaging studies do not pick up any positive findings. If your symptoms persist or recur consult your doctor. Regards.
was then put on phenabarbital this is very devastating to me. now my symptoms are much worse A year later not only is my head shaking now my whole body is and it dose not stop when i am trying to do things it slow down but dose'nt stop & my head is full speed ahead 24 7 my legs get very tired almost feels like lead ihave tinglling in my hands and feet and i have trouble holding on to things ican have something in my hands $ drop it and not know it.
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.
the only really things that has worked for me is whenever i start feeling my symptoms (strange feeling that something is happening to me like a stroke or heart attack when i dont even know what are the symptoms of those and a combination of physical symptoms like sweaty palms and feet, jumping muscles and shaking legs and hands) to start saying to myself: NOTHING IS HAPPENING, I AM ALIVE STILL" IF IT WAS A STROKE OR HEART ATTACK I WOULD BE DEAD BY NOW SO STOP AND KEEP GOING"
Thx. My jaw has been doing the repetive movement for about 3 weeks. Approx. within the
last time they reduced the Dep. this last time, they do it again on the 5th of each mth.
I've always had restless legs though, & the pursing of my lips off & on is brand new. I see
the p-doc later this coming week to review things & I think (know) I'll be asking a lot of
questions! My 1st stroke was 8 yrs ago, my ex cut my corotid artery & I suffered the stroke as a result.
I had a small stroke 2 months ago. since then I have bad shaken. my whole body justs shakes. it look like someone with parkinsons. I know it's not that, that's the only way I can explan it. I hope you can help answer this for me. thank you.
My girlfriend's mother suffered stroke two years ago, and she is on recovery now. Recently we saw the news on http://kangnaowan.bodycountry.com, and we have enrolled to take part in the free treatment program. Maybe it will help mother. I'm looking foward to see the result. And maybe you can make a consultation with them.
My girlfriend started having these shaking spells a few weeks ago. It started out with just her hands/forearms...shaking like the muscles were spasming...and now it has started turning into her whole body shaking at night. Most of the time it happens after she goes to sleep. Last night it was so bad that I tried waking her up, and it took almost ten minutes to get her to sit up and be able to talk to me... and she was still having the tremors the whole time.
My daughter was admitted to the hospital with stroke like symptoms March 16th, 2015. They did an MRI and C Scan. She stayed 3 days. She did have a few spots on her MRI. She is weak, lots of pain, foggy, and still has a little problem with speech. She has trouble with her S's words. When she starts to feel worse again; it starts with her brain shaking. she says that it feels like it is shaking in her skull, and then it takes her awhile to get up and move again.
After exhibiting unusual symptoms (hand shaking uncontrolably, fainting, numbnes)I was recommended to a neurologist who did a CT scan and found a Lacunar Infarct as a result of a stroke. I was only 28 when I found this out. Since then there have been a couple more tests. MRI, and EEG, however I have not heard from my doctor since. How often should I have additional tests? What kind of effects may occur in the future because of this.
numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination.
I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system.
Walked over to the fridge got the door open about 2 inches when I started shaking and convulsing and ended up on the floor face down and weak almost completely cleaned off the counter and stove this is not the first time it has happened and I want it to stop ... Any ideas what it is ?
I should add in the last 3 yrs I have been to hospital twice with stroke like symptoms, I thought I had had a stroke, symptoms were clumsiness on left side and sweats, slurred speech and generally unwell
