Avatar f tn ll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

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.
Avatar n tn to everyone telling jesskiekins that this is a stroke, cut it out. the worst it could be is a TIA (transient ischemic attack) since the symptoms went away, and even that is unlikely. probably bell's palsy.
Avatar n tn My grandma did not have a stroke, but she had Bell's palsey. One side of her mouth drooped and her smile was affected. I read it was important to massage the area regularly and every day and suggested she do this. God used her faithful massage of the area to bring her full smile back! It was such a blessing.
Avatar m tn I'm 23 male. Since past 1 month when I try to smile, my cheeks start to tremble. I also notice muscle twitches in my body. My right upper eye led also twitch. Sometimes my finger moves OR jumps on its own for 1 second then it becomes normal. I have also noticed my leg moves its position slightly involuntary for 1-2 second then it becomes normal. Past history: I was diagnosed with vitamin d deficiency with hyperparathyroid in october 2012, I don't know if its primary or secondary.
Avatar n tn I agree with your concern over these symptoms- this sounds like signs of a stroke to me however, I'm not a doctor, so don't take that as it's what is happening. I'd really recommend that you call your doctor and talk to them right away about these symptoms. If you can't get a hold of them, it doesn't hurt to get to the ER- especially if it could be a possible stroke.
Avatar f tn But, even if you do have diagnosed migraine with stroke-like symptoms, if you ever show any NEW stroke symptoms then it is still important to seek immediate medical attention regardless of previous diagnosis, just like the last note on whisperwolf's list says.
Avatar f tn Thinking I had a stroke or anurysm or something.
Avatar f tn It kind of sounds like Bell's palsy. My husband had it for a month last year. It's just the nerve in your face that stops responding for a small amount of time and it usually happens when your immune system is already compromised from something. He has been fine for months now, but it was annoying for him when it happened. You do have to see a doctor or go to the hospital though just so they can confirm that's it. It is similar to stroke symptoms so it's always better to check.
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 f tn Been feeling stress and anxiety for the past 2 weeks and realize that due to the anxiety, i experiencing a lot of unnecessary symptoms. Eg, fatigue, wrist pain, headach etc. after posting on medhelp, i am trying to tell myself not to get so stress up. Try to calm myself and indeed feeling better. Actually reading through Hiv living with forum. I realise actually Hiv is not that scary after all. With proper treatment, able to lead a normal life.
Avatar m tn However, the symptoms you have described that you may had attack of a migraine but it is unlikely to be related with stroke. Stroke happens when the blood supply to the brain is disturbed in some way. As a result, brain cells are starved of oxygen weakness down one side of the face, causing the mouth to droop. Symptoms are one side or part of body feels paralyzed, difficult speech, difficult swallowing, loss of muscle coordination or balance, brief loss of vision, severe headache and confusion.
Avatar f tn From what you posted, you should have gone to the ER with the start of your symptoms since this could be a stroke, and now we can treat strokes but only in the very first hours of starting. Now it has been > 24 hours. I suggest you call your doctor on-call and report your symptoms, and go to the ER anyway to get checked out. It could be something as simple as Bell's Palsy (a nerve that affects the area involved), but it could be more serious like a stroke.
Avatar n tn I am no Doctor but numbness and tingling to one side with weakness to that side could mean a stroke or mini stroke when you feel this try to smile and look in the mirror if only on corner of you smile lifts up get to the hospital asap. Good Luck and I wish and pray for you the best.
Avatar n tn ve been told there is a test to see if 911 should be called for someone suspected of havine a stroke. The test consists of three actions to ask the suspected stroke victim to perform. The three questions are; 1) Ask the person to smile. 2) Ask the person to raise both arms. 3) Ask the person to speak a simple sentence. Supposedly, if the person can't do one or more of these things, there's a chance he's having a stroke. Is this true?
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 n tn Five of those times were for TIA-like symptoms. All occurrences happened between 2100 and 0100 hours. Each time, the symptoms were gone within three hours, and in several instances the patient would smile or grin -- even when minutes earlier she was expressing the immense pain associated with her condition. I'm looking at several differential diagnoses, including conversion reactions or even low swings with her bipolar disorder. Any thoughts?
