Avatar f tn I have had cramps in my tongue off & on for the last several years. This is very frightening & I've been worried about having tongue cancer, a stroke or a heart attack. I asked my dentist about it. He referred me to my doctor who referred me to an oral surgeon. None of them had ever heard of such a symptom. They all checked my tongue for tumors & found nothing wrong. Last night I was awakened from a sound sleep when I had a very strong cramp in my tongue.
Avatar f tn I was stupid and googled why my tongue is crooked and it says it is a stroke! I have all the use of my limbs and have no balance problems but that was the only explanation for that problem...Please I am so damn scared now, I cant sleep and I am going is crying!!!
Avatar f tn My tongue felt swollen it lasted for a few mins and then it happened again last Friday again Sunday and again today. With out the swollen tongue that only happened once. Am I having TIAs and can you have them multiple times a day every day?
Avatar f tn I agree with nursegirl6572's comments but wanted to add to it... The type of headache you described could be an occipital migraine or a stroke (which can present as a strong headache). So some simple tests you can do while waiting for medical help is the Stroke STAR test: Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
Avatar f tn I find these symptoms worrying as you feel like you are having a stroke. All have been ittermittent/on and of everyday but not constant apart from the tongue numbness, it is painful to move my tongue and talk, feels weird. My question to the forum is: Does anyone know if migraines hit in the same spot each time. Like my numbness on my face is always on the same area (path pattern if you like) and same with leg.
Avatar n tn The flushing continues everyday and is often accompanied by a tingling sensation in my tongue and frequent headaches upon awakening. My blood pressure is normal, and I exercise everyday. I have historically had a low white blood count (3.4) for many years without incidents. My primary care physician doesn't have an idea what these symptoms mean. I am not sure how to proceed... see an allergist or a rheumotologist? Thank you for any advice.
Avatar m tn I am not a doctor but it sounds like something that you need to seek medical attention to asap. Stroke symptoms include going numb on one side or the other, dizzyness, off balance, headache.
Avatar n tn The tip of my tongue keeps feeling numb as does the right handside of my bottom lip. Its not totally numb but maybe more tingly. Can you help me figure out what could be causing this?
Avatar n tn what might be the cause of waking up suddenly from sleep during night because of a choking sensation due to severe swelling of tongue (so much swelling that I was unable to fit in my dentures) .This was associated with extremely garbled speech. I didn't call 911 because i couldn't speak. I checked in mirror and my smile was not distorted. I am a 63 yr. old female who is on medication for hypertension and have a strong family history for stroke and heart disease.
744637 tn?1250803022 Hi, It is difficult to differentiate complicated migraine from stroke. The symptoms of stroke develop very rapidly while the symptoms of complicated migraine develop insidiously. MRI and CT scan in patients of stroke shows the characteristic small vessel ischemic changes. The best treatment for migraine is recognition and avoidance of trigger. Medications like NSAIDS are used to abort acute attacks of migraine. Other medications include butalbital, isometheptene and botox.
Avatar f tn I was on 100mg and I began having tia-stroke like symptoms. Sometimes even something small like new meds can be a side effect. CRAZy Right? Or maybe you should keep a log of what you eat and what you experience. so you can give it to your dr. Another thing? do you have a lot of stress in your life? or suffer from anxiety or depression. Because that could also effect you. I hope you find out soon!
Avatar m tn Like if an area of the brain is affected, it causes certain results peripherally. In the absence of this, it is difficult to say that the symptoms are due to TIA or stroke. Many times with TIAs the imaging studies do not pick up any positive findings. If your symptoms persist or recur consult your doctor. Regards.
Avatar m tn Hi! Recently I`v got a very strange symptoms - my face, left arm, base of my tongue got numbness, I got faint and it continuos for a couple of hours.

Avatar f tn My mom had an hemorrhagic stroke 2 months ago and 2 days later her tongue had became so swollen and it's protruding out of her mouth, the doctors has no clue what the cause is, maybe I should say they're not trying to get a clue, I believe it may be an allergic reaction to one of the ace inhibitor she's taking, I ask the doctor if she's able to take steroids to see if it will maybe help.
Avatar f tn Had stroke two years ago. Tongue has progressively become numb. Is there new hope/treatment for help in relieving and/or stopping creeping numbness?
1318351 tn?1313381421 Now I will say that anything can happen after a stroke, but what I mentioned are the most common symptoms of a stroke. I do not not want you to worry about having a stroke, but if you have something that is bad enough to make you stressed out and can't wait to the doctor, then go to the ER. Our bodies always tell us when something is wrong.
Avatar m tn Hi, its difficult to tell the exact prognosis. As the post stroke swelling subsides she may recover function. But now all depends on if her vitals are stable or not. As she is improving and if the "stroke" is stabilized, and there is no further bleeding or clotting I would remain optimistic. Regards.

Avatar f tn Hi mom cop, Last year I had tingling that started in my left leg and worked its way up my left side, into my head and tongue. I had a lot of other symptoms at the time, but after all of my testing came back normal, my Neuro doc said it was migraines with stroke-like symptoms. I don't have migraines too often and the diagnosis seemed silly. I still have the tingling on my left side but unless I stop and think about it... I don't really notice it.
Avatar m tn During the followup call I mentioned that the left side of my tongue was numb, and chewing ,swallowing and talking were difficult.The office said to call back if things were not normal the next day.To shorten the story I got an MRI,EKG,and an artery scope.No sign of a stroke was found.Has anyone heard of this?The operation was the left shoulder,and when I stick out my tongue it curves left.
Avatar f tn Hello, For the past few months I have been having some issues regarding my chin, under my tongue and even lips. Off and on throughout the day my chin will get a numbness sensation and will also be under my tongue and sometimes make my lips numb. My face will get flush and I become very hot. At times I thought that maybe I should eat something but this only seems to help the problem temporarily and then it comes back. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn A week ago, I began having symptoms of numbness and tingling on one side of my tongue that spread to my entire tongue, all of my lips and patches on my face. At first I thought it was related to the diabetic neuropathy on my feet but after speaking with my doctor, I went to the ER. The EKG, CT-Scan and blood work all came back normal and later during the week, so did the ultrasound on my neck arteries and the echo on my heart.
Avatar f tn No history of cancer. No stroke symptoms. No MS. No swelling, allergies, nothing. Literally just lip numbness but it is FREAKING me dental work lately. No infection. No pain. Could I have slept super wrong on my belly and pinched a nerve?
Avatar n tn She recently got into a major altercation with some family folks and because of the mental and emotional distress she has lost her speech ability. She can speak but with a heavy tongue and she says that she cannot feel her tongue. Can anyone tell me if this phenomenon is temporary or permanent. Also what can I do to reverse this condition?
386392 tn?1207257183 Migraines may not cause stroke, but can co-exist with stroke or a transient ischemic attack. Was an MRI done since they suspected encephalitis? It may lead us to the cause of the brisk reflexes. To answer one of your earlier questions, you can differentiate between a nightmare and a seizure by the state you are in after you wake up. Nightmare does not make you bite your tongue. You have body ache and headache after a seizure.
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.
