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 n tn in ALS, do the symptoms preclude the atrophy of the tongue, or do the symptoms come after atrophy is evident. Also, the dividing line separating the two halves of my tongue is not centered and slightly favors the smaller side. Everything I read says the tongue should be symmpetrical in a healthy person. Any ideas?

Avatar n tn Agree to test cholesteral based on history of stroke symptoms
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.
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.

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.
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 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 n tn I read a letter from a daughter whose mother had stroke like symptoms. My mother has also experienced stroke like symptoms and no one can seem to find out what is wrong.
2792668 tn?1340126001 Overall muscles feel tight and burning. Sinuses are burning and extrememly dry. Bumps on right side of tongue are irritating. Could be ulcers on tongue. Larnyx does not feel normal and voice is not normal. Some tightness in chest. Hot weather seems to make hands slightly swollen. Spine has nerve twinges also.
Avatar n tn Just yesterday I feel like the tip of my tongue is numb and I feel like I having trouble talking and pronoucing some words. I have also noticed a problem with my vision - near and far blurriness, and a hard time focusing.
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 You have some classic symptoms of a stroke with the word problem and only one side of your face moving. The sensations on both sides of your body are more unusual for a stroke, but you owe it to yourself to get medical help ASAP. If you have had a small stroke or TIA, you have a far bigger chance of having a major stroke. Really, go to the ER or a doctor right away.
Avatar f tn Thinking I had a stroke or anurysm or something.

1648573 tn?1301413705 and he examined me for possible stroke. I had no other symptoms of stroke so he suspected that it could be inflamed tissue that is causing my tongue to do this. He suggested I give it a few days to see. after a few days and no change, my wife took me back to the ER. I still was having chronic headaches and the left side of my tongue still did not function (back).
Avatar n tn hi! just want to ask if what kind of symptoms if someone died from sleeping while moaning and his feet and stomach is rigid or stiffening while the tongue was out?
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 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.
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.
