Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms sleep

stroke

Avatar m tn Hi, Thank you for your question. Common symptoms after stroke could be unconsciousness, loss of vision, headache, eye and neck pain, seizures, paralysis, gait disturbances etc. It needs some days to recover completely as it depends upon severity also. Investigations like CT angiography, MRI, CSF examination (presence of blood) are essential to reach at diagnosis here. Neurosurgery is the mainstay of treatment that may be suggested by a neurologist after examination.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.
2190999 tn?1504992491 and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms. The reason I'm posting now is bc I still have left leg weakness, hypersensitivity and constant tingling on the entire left side of my body. I've read migraines with stroke symptoms are benign but I'm wondering if I should expect things to get better. And yes I've thought about letting my neuro doc know about this, but I'm afraid she'll want to do more testing...
Avatar f tn That's why the first symptoms I had I thought I was having a stroke. It comes and goes. Sometimes more right sometimes the left. The hand weakness and tremors also come and go. And change up sides. Legs are mostly right side. Very hard to explain to dr's. I haven't had drooping but feels more like it creeps over me. And like Novocain was rubbed on my skin. Makes me "twitchy" I have to concentrate very hard to do simple tasks that I used to take for granted.

Avatar f tn It was so unusual that I stayed on at a social event, not understanding what was going on. When I got home I slept, or tried to sleep, and I began throwing up, and then dry heaving when there was nothing to throw up. I became very dehydrated and I could not even bring myself to stand up. I had a terrible headache and I felt as awful as I have ever felt.
Avatar m tn Diagnosed Bradycardia 8 yrs ago & MS 20 yrs ago. No symptoms with bradycardia (rest 53/sleep 47) except missed/extra beats, no dizziness, pain or tiredness apart from MS related. MS is benign, I have no disability do not smoke & am not over weight. I am 49 yrs old. I would not call myself fit & do no formal exercise. Cardiologist said carry on as normal. I avoid caffeine and adrenaline in medication as they give me palpitations. My questions, 1.
Avatar n tn Hello Dear, You probably have hemiplegic migraine where , the symptoms are indicative of vascular disease and can be thought to be stroke. Migraine-specific abortives, the triptans and ergotamines, are currently contraindicated in the treatment of Hemiplegic Migraine because of their vasoconstrictive properties and concerns about stroke You should consult your physician and monitor your blood pressure for there may be chancec of hypertension with migraine.

469720 tn?1388149949 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
1268921 tn?1288922656 Anyone experience more symptoms when they have less sleep? On a side note, I have my appt with the Neuro-Ophtha in the AM and the 2nd opinion with a neuro in the PM. Will see what they say, but am thinking I will go ahead and get an appt with Dr. Di in Cleveland (known for chiari). Esp after realizing that I had really upped my workout routine in the 9 days prior to the 'episode'....which coincides with the vision changes. Lots of impact...we shall see!
Avatar n tn i would say everyone 's ARS symptoms are different. from what i heard by chat, they all experiences different degree of Fever, but some of them had sore throat, some had rash, some went to hosipital for intensive care. even their symptoms occur on different period, the fast one like on day 8, and quite many said after 3 weeks.
Avatar n tn The next day he woke up with the same symptoms as the stroke 6 years ago and we assumed he had another stroke. The MRI, CTScan shows no new stroke, but his symptoms continue and he doesn't seem to be getting much better. He has lost his job due to the memory loss issues. Any thoughts on what could have happened? We are seeing a neuropsychologist.
Avatar n tn i had numbness in face and hands ...visual disturbances and slurred speech much like a stroke but the symptoms went away they said it was probaly just a migraine......i had been taking birth control for 8 months also.....and never had anything like this before the birth control........ since then i have been having sleep problems and it is concerning me very much? i am 19 years old......
Avatar m tn Six days out of LAD bypass surgery. Can't sleep. Hot and sweaty, then get so cold that my teeth chatter. Heart feels like it's racing. Also having bad constipation. They've got me on Plavix, Aspirin, Iron, Tenormin, DocQlace, Hydroco/Apap for pain. Was prescribed Meloxicam, but not taking it because of what I read about it and bypass surgeries. Would love to get some sleep.
Avatar m tn Stroke and sleep disturbances are commonly found together. Sleep apnea has been suggested to predispose someone for a stroke and a stroke can predispose someone to sleep apnea (up to 70% of people in some studies). Headaches and sleep disturbances are also strongly associated. It is important that your husband continue to work with his sleep specialist to optimize his CPAP. Additionally, he will need to optimize his medical management, i.e., hypertension.
Avatar n tn He had a sleep test done-in 8 hr test he got 341 minutes of sleep but had 59 awakenings. He does not have sleep apnea nor restless leg syndrome but has a problem with positioning during sleep. He never had a problem with sleeping until a car accident in which he now has problems with his neck, with 30 & 50% tears in his shoulders and a hip problem.
Avatar f tn It could be a nightmare disorder. This can be assessed by a sleep questionnaire and therapy is based on the severity of symptoms. Best Regards.
Avatar f tn I'm on anti depressants for pain, and depression and they don't seem to be working, all I want to do is sleep. I can't get enough sleep. I need to be a mom to my kids, but I can't due to sleeping all the time. I'm so tired of taking all these different medicines that don't seem to help any length of time. They help for a few weeks, then the headaches are back, and I'm sleeping all day again. I have short term memory really bad, alot of duh moments. No physical disabilites.
Avatar f tn The associated symptoms with the following disorder are confusional wakefulness, sleep paralysis, nightmares and night terrors. This can occur in any sleep stage (REM and non-REM stage) . To rule out parasomnias she needs to undergo Polysomnyography and sleep analysis. she needs to take out time for further evaluation. Ask her to sleep with light on. Short term benzodiazepine against prescription will help her. I suggest you to consult her to a physician or sleep specialist.
Avatar f tn I had an ischematic stroke in August 2006, when aged 51, and since then have suffered numerous neurological 'episodes' which were initially diagnosed by the local hospital as TIA's (mini-strokes) but which I'm now informed are a rare kind of migraine. I don't get the blinding headaches that I'd normally expect with a migraine, but I do get the same sorts of symptoms you'd expect with a stroke - head floppiness, slurred speech, inability to flex the fingers of my left hand etc.
Avatar n tn I think it unlikely that the primary cause of your dog's death was heat stroke. Your dog was exhibiting abnormal symptoms prior to being left outside. She had increased drinking while she was still indoors in the air conditioning. Increased drinking can be signs of over heating of course, but it is also caused by diabetes, hyperadrenocorticism, kidney disease, pyometra, toxin ingestion and more. I am sorry that I cannot be more definitive about her cause of death.
Avatar f tn What is causing chronic, severe itching since my father's stroke? --ischemic stroke, right side brain, left side paralysis. My 80 yr old father had a stroke 4 months ago. About 1-1/2 months ago he started experiencing mild itching on his legs and has now become chronic all over his body. Most of his meds have rash and itching side effects. Aggrenox was just changed to Plavix, but the itching has not stopped. 325mg of aspirin is also a future consideration as a blood thinner.
Avatar n tn for appointment times because that is physican related. Your symptoms might be from your stroke, and certainly the symptoms point in that direction. As far as resolution of the symptoms, that depends on the extent of the stroke and rehab.
Avatar n tn I have been having counselling once per week which does seem to help alleviate (although does not remove) my symptoms a bit. I'm seeing my stroke specialist next week to talk to him in more detail. If I have anything else that may be useful I'll post it.

Avatar n tn Hi Sorry to hear about your stroke :( Given that you woke with the symptoms, the three hour tPA window had already passed as it is three hours from when you last had no sypmtoms. In your case this would be the time you went to sleep. May I suggest you now focus on your recovery? If you keep working at it you will improve. No one knows how much but keep at it. I'm ~17 months post & have improvements all the time, my walking keeps improving. I've almost given up my stick!
