stroke

Avatar f tn I've noticed months after the hemorrhagic stroke that I still have minimal numbness in the lower part of my leg and sensitivity in my left arm and hand everything else is fine. Has anyone experienced a change in their sense of taste?
Avatar m tn For several months now I have had a constant sweet smell and taste in my nose and mouth. I consulted the doctor and had all the blood tests required for diabetes etc. All the tests came back normal. The doctor said that it could be a sinus infection, and all he could do is prescribe an anti-biotic. Can anyone shine any light on my problem ?.
Avatar n tn There are many things that could cause problems with taste. If this has just happened you should go to the emergency room to rule out a stroke or other vascular event. Let us know what happens. Welcome to our community too!
Avatar f tn A month ago my mother went numb on the left side of her face, when she smiled even the left side was unreactive for a long time. Two weeks ago she lost her sense of taste, she had issues with taste in general but mostly with tasting salt. The past few days she has been really dizzy and says her vision is a bit blurred at times. I am concerned she has had a stroke...maybe multiple...and the doctors are ignoring it. The doctors today diagnosed her with Virtigo...

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.
Avatar m tn Hi there, recently I noticed I am getting more a taste and smell in the back of my throat and in my sinus opposed to in my nose. When I in-hale normally I can get the taste/smeel in my throat but when I inhale through my nose alone its gone and the same applies through my mouth. A few months back I was sent of a scan of my intestines and stomach and they found that I had a stomach bacteria so I was prescribed 2000mg twice daily of antibiotics to be taken over 2 weeks.
Avatar f tn Howver have been left with very distorted taste - a lot of things taste too strong - eg I can taste the yeast in bread so it tastes mouldy and I can taste something like sulphur in vegetables and other foods. The only foods I enjoy and which taste the same are dairy foods. I realise I'm very lucky to be alive and as well as I am but I do find this problems difficult to cope with.
Avatar n tn my friend has these symptoms : dizzy, I lost the ability to form sentences that one time, I get confused sometimes, my lip and tongue went numb, metallic taste in my mouth, and whenever I workout I have to slow down because it feels like I was getting brain freeze.
Avatar f tn 1. Some of the nurses used the lime or orange flavored sponge to moisten my mouth and it helped a lot. But just ice cold water put on a sponge and held to my lips so I could suck what I needed was something I craved. The temperature was almost as important to me as the liquid. For me, absence of moisture, taste, and temperature variation had become sort of a single-sense sensory deprivation. I found your message because I'm looking for a source for those sponges.
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.
655045 tn?1225473924 I found out that I had a PFO and a genetic blood clotting disorder that caused my stroke and ever since I had my PFO closed I have had no more headaches, new neurological symptoms, or "episodes." Since my stroke I have been diagnosed with orthostatic hypotension, neurocardiogenic syncope, and POTS although this seems like more of a name for a collection of symptoms than a cause, which is what I am concerned about.
Avatar m tn Non smoker, moderate alcool consumtion, no history of heart disease in family ( mother had stroke but heavy smoker, diabetis, drinker, overweight). This started quite a while ago, had same symptoms before (maybe a year or so ago) but they rarely appear. I get pain in the middle of my chest, lower rib cage, appx 2 inches above the xyphoid process. Pain in moderate and very localized. It appears for no apparent reason and leave within minutes and may reapear.

Avatar m tn m not sure what you mean by short-term fix. There is a medical protocol to treat the symptoms if any. Having 100% aorta blockage and not having heart failure or cardiac arrest indicates there are other vessels in the heart that supply blood to the area normally supplied by the area distal to the blockage. Medication can be therapy of choice if there is relief from any heart related symptoms due to ischemia (lack of blood flow). If medication doesn't help, then a stent implant or a bypass.
Avatar f tn I've had like a metal taste when I'm eating food for the past couple of days, and it's like I have no taste in my mouth when I'm eating food.. it's like plain boring food and it's food that I like, i.e chipotle... it has not taste to me right now..
Avatar m tn For the past couple months or so I have been having growing symptoms. First I had chest pain and after an X-Ray and EKG they diagnosed as cochondritis. Lungs in X-Ray were normal. Shortly after I started to experience a weird taste in my mouth that I can't really describe. Seems like a metallic taste; however, it isn't strong like if I were to put a penny in mouth.
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 Certain medical conditions need to be considered like a transient ischemic attack, stroke, alzheimer’s disease and depression. Once stroke and TIA are ruled out, she may be assessed by a psychiatrist depending on the protocols in the hospital. Take care.
Avatar f tn Has anybody experienced stroke symptoms? All day Saturday my left arm was kinda numb and tingling and the that night out of no where the tingling went up my neck to my face, my lips and tongue went numd, got hot and my heart was beating fast...laid down and it went away.
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 f tn stopping alcohol intake can improve the ataxia but if it is severe, some permanent symptoms may remain. In patients with cerebellar stroke, with intensive physical and occupational therapy over weeks to months, symptoms may become minimal and may even resolve completely.
