464054 tn?1223826633 Among women who were later treated for stroke, the study showed that many of them reported symptoms that were different from the typical stroke symptoms.

Avatar n tn What are the likely causes of this sudden change in bp? I doubt it was this sudden. Probably overlooked on previous exams. If I discover that my bp has dropped since returning to the US, is it still an issue? If your blood pressure is in a normal range now, you would not require medications but should be followed because you are probably more likely to develop hypertension later in life. I would guess that your parents probably have high blood pressure as well and you have inherited it.
Avatar n tn sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination and sudden, severe headache with no known cause. If any of these were observed, immediately seek help. Otherwise,other differentials for a limp hand can be nerve-related or musculoskeletal in nature. If her condition persists, have this evaluated further by her doctor for proper management. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn * Sudden vision changes. * Sudden trouble speaking. * Sudden confusion or trouble understanding simple statements. * Sudden problems with walking or balance. * A sudden, severe headache that is different from past headaches. Symptoms can vary depending on whether the stroke is caused by a blood clot (ischemic stroke) or bleeding (hemorrhagic stroke), where the stroke occurs in the brain, and how bad it is. A stroke usually happens suddenly but may occur over hours.

Avatar f tn You really have to go to an ER when having such symptoms to rule out stroke. Generally (but not always) such transient neurological symptoms are due to hypoxia. A portion of the brain is being deprived oxygen. This could be due to a clot blocking the microcirculation, a spasm of a blood vessel, or momentary cardiac insufficiency. It is probably wise to get an EKG while having symptoms as well as cardiac enzymes.
Avatar n tn HI! I was just diagnosed with POTS type 1 [Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS)]this last year. Your symptoms and experience sound similar to mine. You said, "I started experiencing feelings of pressure in my head, dizziness, and inability to focus & concentrate on things...I also ALWAYS have a dull headache & sometimes my heart beats heavily and I have shortness of breath...I have even gone to the ER on two occassions for this.
Avatar f tn I have read that Migraines, or even TIA's (mini strokes which usually resolve any damages or issues on their own), have the same display of symptoms as a stroke. The doctor really should have been more thorough or at least made sure you understood what happened to you before you left though. It saddens me to see this type of routine apathy in the medical profession. Also it might help to note the events that led up to the throbbing pain in your head.
Avatar f tn I fortunately, had the same ER dr. he didn't seem to think I had another stroke, but just neurological symptoms from the migraine I was experiencing. My potassium was again a little low even after being on potassium pills. In the hospital I had been put on Aggrenox as a blood thinner and as I understand it put oxygen in my veins and arteries. I have since been taken off of it and put on 2 low dose aspirins a day. In these almost 3 weeks post-stroke, I have my good days and my bad days.
429949 tn?1224695179 He said he didn't see evidence of a stroke, so why, after he was having trouble distinguishing between ADEM and MS , did he jump back to it may have been vascular? I know I am frightened by the sudden death of my cousin, but I'm afraid that they may not know the difference between the two. Does anyone know if they are different on MRI?
Avatar n tn Not sure of your current situation as your post was a year ago but my dad too had a sudden decline while in the hospital after a thalamic stroke (we didn't know what it was when we first took him in). Drs didn't really do any further testing and it's only been through questioning, pushing, arguing, advocating by the family that he is getting the care he needs. We are now 3 years post stroke and he's been called the "miracle man" when we've been back to the local hospital.
Avatar n tn My husband aged 54 had a (embolic) stoke in July, which affected his left side, he recovered quickly and was able to give a brilliant speech at our daughters wedding on august 9th 2008, then suddenly at the end of August his speech began to deteriorate, they detected another stroke which caused this. Now he has no other symptoms other than this speech slur, has anyone any advice. He has been referred to speach therapist, but as yet not seen anyone.
Avatar f tn Up until a month ago,I would get sudden urges to sleep. For awhile I thought it was something to do with my blood sugar, but I never got a glucose tolerance test. I thought it was related to my blood sugar because often times after eating a "large meal" or if I felt really full, I would almost immediately become excessively drownsy and inevitably fell asleep afterwards.
Avatar n tn Greetings -- I have been diagnosed with dystonia (cause and type unknown), but would like to list my symptoms here since I have mystified several doctors. Please note pre-existing conditions: mild non-shunt-dependent hydrocephalus; 2 arachnoid cysts; fibromyalgia.
1947387 tn?1325644930 I don't know if this was related... but I noticed a sudden change the day after having a large sushi meal on April 3rd, which I know is extremely high in iodine. I felt drained and exahusted. Blood pressure was very low (for me): 75/55, pulse racing. I started having "rage attacks" about 30 mins after each dose of Armour. After 3 days, at my husbands insistance, I decreased my dose. Still had exhaustion and rage.
Avatar m tn The other thing is actually fairly common, and I don't mean to imply this of you, but some folks who spend a lot of time on a computer will get some VERY oddball symptoms, sometimes like yours. See, the computer screen is flipping and flashing, but it's so subtle that ordinarily we don't see it. So, if you are spending long periods in front of a computer screen, make it a habit to get up from the screen every hour, look out a window for some distance gazing, just break that focus.

Avatar n tn If the daily symptoms were being caused by strokes, your brain would look really, really bad. Usually, stroke symtpoms are limited and will resolve with a remaining deficit. Your symptoms are continuous that would rule out stroke as a cause of these symptoms, with the MRI you describe. I can't tell you what your symptoms are from because I can't examine you.
Avatar n tn How are you? General symptoms of a stroke include sudden onset of: numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the face, arm, or leg, typically on one side of the body; trouble seeing in one or both eyes, such as dimness, blurring, double vision, or loss of vision; confusion, trouble understanding; slurred or garbled speech; trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination; or severe headache.
Avatar f tn I am not trying to scare you but a stroke is rather serious. Do some research and if you think the symptoms match up force her to see a doctor. whether she believes in them or not this could save her from having a more serious stroke, which could do anything from paralyzing one side of the body or even death. I'm sorry to scare or worry. As I said, I may be wrong, this is only a best guess from a college student, who works with children and took a first aid and cpr course.
Avatar m tn I am having sudden pain in left arm. Sudden headache. Blood pressure been high few days. Heart rate 125. A little high for me. Have had 2 past strokes but didn't know. Now pain yet numb left arm and my head. Neaus r a, eyes hurt. ?
Avatar n tn When the stroke happened, I ignored my symptoms and they went away. Just to be on the safe side I saw my family doctor 3 days later, and he immediately sent me to emergency where I had blood work and CT scan, which showed I had a stroke. I asked if there was any connection between my nose injury and stroke, and told there was none.
Avatar f tn My husband is suffering from a variety of symptoms that so far have been undiagnosed. Around 2000 he developed a speech problem where he has trouble finding the right word, says the wrong word, switches parts of words, or studders. In 2005, we went to a neurologist who said that he had 5 small strokes that affected the language center of the brain. In 2009 developed numbness in fingers of both hands. In 2010 he was sitting down and suddenly felt a pain in his right thigh.
