Stroke symptoms vision loss

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms vision loss


Avatar n tn my mother recently visited neurologist ( was refered by eye-specialist ) who remarked her of vision loss that could lead to blindness. i read a word VASCULAR HEADACHE in the report. few weeks back my mother complaint that she is seeing black spots / webs before her eyes, that i read from net are the floaters. she is also suffering from migrane for a very long time. she also complaint that her hearing capability is also reducing. i am really worried . i fear she might loose her vision.
Avatar f tn I have been searching for information on the web about hair loss after a stroke. I had a subarachnoid hemorrhagic stroke from a brain aneurysm in January of 2010. I had an endovascular coiling treatment to stop the bleeding, and I have since had a repeat coiling procedure (in April) when it reopened.
Avatar n tn I suggest that you seek a referral to a retina specialist.Further tests may be done to ascertain the cause of your symptoms. This loss of peripheral vision and the occurrence of wavy lines in the visual field may not be readily detected in initial ophthalmologic examinations.An optical coherence tomography test may be able to visualize deeper layers of the retina to completely rule out its involvement.
2190999 tn?1504992491 I was worked up for MS in 2012 and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms. In 2012 I had left leg weakness and foot drop, dizziness which lasted for months, lateral nystagmus, loss of balance etc.The reason I ask now is bc I still have left leg weakness and tingling on the entire left side of my body. The tingling is constant with intense waves of tingling.
Avatar n tn Since 2002 I have lost vision in my left eye for 1/2 hour or more at a time. I experience stroke like symptoms...inability to concentrate, confusion, anxiety, etc. I lost my job as a lending officer and finance teacher due to memory loss (mainly with names, dates...words) and am at a loss as to what my problem may be. My heart rate drops into the 20's, and had a space of 2.6 seconds between beats during the halter test. Can a slow heart beat casue these symptoms?
Avatar n tn On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
Avatar n tn After a couple of tests and Retinal Angiogram the conclusion was that nothing in the retina could cause this sudden loss of vision. Certain lattice degeneration spots were there on the retina, and I've been given two laser treatment sessions to strengthen the retina. Meanwhile, investigation on the cause of sudden loss of vision - I am now with a Neuro-Opthalmo specialist - who's trying to ascertain if there's anything wrong with the optic nerve.
Avatar f tn but I disagree with the diagnosis My symptoms are no balance,wheelchair bound,blurred vision,dizziness,slurred speech,now having headaches which have alot ,tremors sometimes. Been like this for 7 years with no answers and I am 42 years old. I was a very healthy women until this. I had a ct and mri and nothing showed up. Someone please help me!
Avatar f tn My question is is there anything that we can do to help improve her Vision and her memory loss/confusion? On a side note the doctors did find a possible aneurysm (unrelated to the stroke) that we are going to have an angiogram preformed to confirm if there is one or not in her brain. Eventhough the say it appears to be no more than 2.5 mm could it contribute to some of my mom's current issues?
Avatar f tn At 26 I had a massive ischemic stroke in my right occipital lobe. I was about 95% blind after the stroke. About a year later my vision had nearly all cleared up. I only had 50% vision loss in my left eye only instead of both eyes. About two months ago though I started to experience strange symptoms. About two minutes before falling asleep and roughly two minutes after waking up my ENTIRE, body...goes numb. I can't feel my limbs, at all. Sometimes they're even hard to move.
Avatar f tn At 34 weeks I delivered after a complete abruption and and high blood pressure (many other preeclamptic type symptoms). My child suffered a stroke due to the abruption. I continue to have headaches and my once very strong memory for details is now replaced with much "forgetfulness", body/joint pains and frequent headaches. My doc was told about the episodes during my pregnancy and stated "lets keep an eye on it. If it happens again we will run other tests".
383943 tn?1217726321 hi, i am a 35 year old female my doctor says i am having mini strokes,my symptoms are severe short term memory loss loss of balance fatigue confusion vision loss in one eye and also blockage behind my eye.Was any of your symptoms the same as mine?
Avatar m tn Hi, Thank you for your question. Common symptoms after stroke could be unconsciousness, loss of vision, headache, eye and neck pain, seizures, paralysis, gait disturbances etc. It needs some days to recover completely as it depends upon severity also. Investigations like CT angiography, MRI, CSF examination (presence of blood) are essential to reach at diagnosis here. Neurosurgery is the mainstay of treatment that may be suggested by a neurologist after examination.
580765 tn?1274922960 I have noticed no correlation between the occurrence of the episodes and any other conditions, other than the progression of the stroke- like symptoms in and around the time of the racing episodes. A neurologist that I saw Tuesday ruled out MS and other neurological conditions, based on several clear MRIs, nerve conduction tests, and lumbar puncture results. He said that all of my symptoms were likely due to an electrial misfire in my heart.
Avatar n tn To be frank there is no technique for restoring vision loss after a stroke. Most such vision loss is bilateral, affecting both eyes and tends to involve the peripheral vision more than the central vision. There may be some improvement spontaneously over the 4 to 6 month period following a stroke but it is usually precious little when accurately measured. Most 'improvement' comes from adaptation and adjustment on the part of the patient.
Avatar f tn His speech is slightly slurred, but no other stroke symptoms apply (dizziness, vomitting, blurred vision, etc..)... within the last 48 hours, he has lost the ability to swallow (even water)... many tests have been run and more are scheduled, but not one Doc has given us any ideas or suspicions. Any ideas out there?
Avatar m tn Hi,my 57 year old mother suffered a hemorrhagic stroke,she was pretty healty before this,but she does smoke.The doc said it was 4 cm and it was on her left side,her vision is affected and her capability to read. She was in the hospital 5 days,her blood pressure,blood work,everything looks good which is very weird!Other then that she was conscious all the time,no memory loss or anything like that. My question is why the docs didn't give her any medication while in the hospital or after?
Avatar f tn However I will try to provide you with some useful information Sudden weakness, sensory loss, and loss of vision on one side of the body can have many possible causes. A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is one possible cause. This can be caused by a transient blockage of an artery in the brain. In a patient the age of your daughter, the conventional causes of TIA and stroke present in older adults are absent (such as smoking, diabetes etc).
Avatar n tn Hello dear, You probably had a Transient Ischaemic Attack or a mini stroke caused by the temporary disturbance of blood supply to a restricted area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that usually persists for less than 24 hours.The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision ; difficulty speaking (aphasia); weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis); and numbness or tingling (paresthesia), usually on one side of the body.
Avatar m tn This is a brief loss of neurological function caused by interference of blood flow to the brain, spinal cord or retina in the eye, with permanent tissue damage. There can be sudden loss of vision, slurring of speech, confusion in understanding or sudden weakness or numbness of the relevant part of body. Usually these symptoms resolve. This is mostly a forerunner of a stroke. Your friend most likely had a TIA followed by a stroke.
Avatar n tn Another possiblity (though less likely perhaps given your multiple stroke risk factors) is could this be MS rather than stroke? Visual loss could have been optic neuritis and the "stroke" in cerebellum could be a plaque. Certainly don't mean to alarm you, just let you know that there may be other possibolities. There are special types of MRI that can easily distinguish between a stroke an dMS.
Avatar n tn A stroke is a common culprit of sudden loss of vision. If the symptoms are transient/temporary, a transient ischemic attack could have occurred. Your symptoms might be associated with hypertension or a cerebrovascular condition. It would be best to have a physician evaluate your condition as soon as possible to check for hypertensive complications, aneurysms, or other underlying conditions. Good luck.
Avatar m tn Yesterday I had a disturbance affecting vision in both eyes that lasted for about 20 minutes.
