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 n tn Agree to test cholesteral based on history of stroke symptoms
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.
469720 tn?1388146349 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?
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.
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 f tn My husbandf took me to the hospital and after ct scans and MRI I was told I had a stroke. I fel blessed tho, I ahve no lasting affects accept bouts of being dizzy and headaches. I am frustrated tho because my questions have not been answered. Why did I have this. My cholesteral is ok, my arteries are ok. The doctors don't have any answers. Ok I do need to lose 20lbs well now 10 and my blood pressure was borderline which I am taking medication for.

Avatar f tn I had a stroke Oct 13,2008. I was 37 yrs old, healthy school bus driver who had a physical every year. The only time I was ever in a hospital was each time I gave birth, and I have 5 children.No complications giving birth. Never had high blood pressure.Until the day I had my stroke.
1474856 tn?1288289049 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.
Avatar n tn I called the doctor and explained the symptoms and again I was told give her aspirin and let her go to sleep and rest. I am concerned this will happen again and she may not survive another stroke. Can any one tell me: HOW CAN I TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STROKE AND FATUGUE I do not want to send her to bed and not be able to wake her because she had a stroke and it really wasn't fatugue. Than you for any information.
Avatar n tn If your arm feels weak or numb, this could certainly be a sign of stroke or mini-stroke and you should seek emergency medical attention. Certain tachycardias do predispose to stroke. I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back. Information provided here is for general purposes only. Specific questions should be addressed to your own doctor.
Avatar n tn hi ihad a massive stroke in december 2009 since then i havent had an good nights sleep is there a reason for this.?
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 f tn 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 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 In MS, patients can have something called optic neuritis in which other vision related symptoms are usually much more prominent, such as pain and vision loss. In addition, stroke may sometimes present with light flashes, but again other stroke symptoms would be predominent or at least concomminent. Lastly, your symptoms could have been stress related and have had no pathological consequences. The way to find out and make sure is to have both neurological and ophthalmological evaluations.
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 n tn My symptoms lasted about 7 months. Then as mysteriously as they appeared they disappeared til last week when they all started again. I have the same stiffness in my right foot and tremors in my hands, legs and eyelids. Weakness in my left forearm and hand. Numbness in my back and shooting pains on the bottom of my feet and fingertips. My voice is raspy for no apparent reason. My vision is blurry. What could be causing all this and what kind of specialist should I be seeing.
Avatar n tn unless several strokes have occurred (leading to what is termed a subcortical or vascular dementia) then the memory loss occuring following a stroke should be non-progressive, meaning that continued memory loss (worsening memory loss) should not be occuring. Memory loss after stroke can be due to depression, recurrent strokes, poor sleep due to sleep apnea, and other non-neurologic problems that can occur unrelated to stroke such as thyroid problems.
Avatar n tn Ok 2 weeks ago i was admitted to the er for stroke symptoms. i did not have a stroke but i now have a right side weakness, my right side of my body feels thicker heavier, i lose track of what i am doing not in the average spacy way but in a feels like my brain is reseting again and again. my mri was clear eeg clear and thryoid was fine.
