I do not think what you have experienced is a form of stroke. Being healthy and fit as you mentioned, this is just a normal reaction of your body to the sensations you are experiencing.
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 f tn in the sense of symptoms of a stroke and stroke warning as signs of a pathology that could lead eventually to a stroke. the only way that could indicate higher risk of stroke is that it was caused by a vascular problem, but you should have a bit more going on I guess. it also depends on your age. maybe it was caused by sudden sun exposure. why are you worried about having a stroke, do you have other symptoms? is there someone in your family who's had a stroke?
1201433 tn?1328997637 which is a true emergency as it causes a sudden spike in heart rate (over 130 beats -often 160), makes your body temp rise to fever levels (mine hit 102 F) and can make your blood pressure go so high you have a stroke. the good news is, if your symptoms become severe, you can take a Beta blocker medicine (slows everything down until the thyroiditis is over) and you won't have to stop treatment...
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.

Avatar f tn About 3 days ago she experienced a sudden severe headache in the right temple area. Blurred/lost vision, black outs, and vomiting shortly followed. She has had it occur several times a day since, with exception of the vomiting. She also complained of lost motor skills; for example, she was helping our young daughter with home work and could not write or print letters or numbers. Each time she gets this pain, her ears ring,  she has trouble seeing, especially in the right eye.

Avatar m tn I have read online that a crossed eye may be due to a stroke. Is this always the case? Can this be a temporary thing related to the dermatologic procedure? Any advice would be appreciated. Do we need to spend the day in the emergency room? There are no other apparent symptoms -- no dizziness, etc.
1638469 tn?1300425972 I never got migraines until about a year ago, then started getting very bizarre ones with lots of aura symptoms like tingling, blurry vision, nausea, trouble remembering words and understanding speech, phantom smells, and so on. Only once did I get the really intense and terrible headache -- the rest of the time I don't get a headache at all (silent/acephalgic migraines) or just a mild one. It is usually behind my left temple and eye.
Avatar f tn Well as correctly said, there are various reason of stroke and stress response / sudden change of posture causing pressure changes in the brain can lead to stroke. Any event causing increased pressure in the brain or it's important arteries can result in the stroke (disruption / rupture of the blood vessel). I hope it satisfies the query. Feel free to discuss further. Regards.
1388618 tn?1288214350 trouble w/ my speech, left side muscle spasms (when not in spasms i loss use of my left hand and arm), painful tingling feeling in arms and legs. the problem w/ my speech is like i know what i want to say but i can't get the words out. then more recently i have trouble w/ remembering simple words during conversations, sometimes i can't even remember what i have done the whole day much less one word.
Avatar n tn No matter which way you look at it, the sudden difficulty in speech must have been a sudden drop in oxygen to the brain. Maybe it was what is termed as a mini stroke which you usually quickly recover from. I would question your medication, perhaps you need something to lower the risk of strokes until they discover the problem. Have the carotid arteries in your neck been checked over?
Avatar f tn That is where you should be with odd symptoms like that. No one can tell you if it is a stroke or not until you've had the proper medical tests...I would think any kind of sudden numbness would be an emergency and possibly serious stuff like stroke or MS.
4784361 tn?1401231107 But he was having more and more trouble than normal. He defecated in the living room, which has never happened in the last 14 years he's been with us. He was very well house trained. My parents were going to take him to an emergency vet, but he recovered, so we decided to wait until morning came along. By 4 he had begun to crying and have problems again. He was panting, drooling more than I've ever seen him, his paws were shaking, and his eyes were wonky.
Avatar n tn I am seeking an cause for a 65+ woman to all of a sudden have trouble swallowing, moving food around with her tongue and talking. She was in the hospital for 3 days having a battery of tests and no known cause for symptoms. I suggested an allergist and they prescribed a nasal spray to dry up her sinuses from dripping down her throat but it doesnt seem to be helping.
