Avatar f tn A stroke is when blood is lost in one side of the brain causing dizziness, loss of motor skills, confusion, blurred vision, and other symptoms. 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.
Avatar n tn There is a good possibility that you suffered from stroke as suggested by your symptoms of loss of vision, numbness and electric shock like sensations in the arms. Also white matter lesion in the brain can occur in stroke. CSF myelin basic protein is a non specific measurement and is seen in inflammatory and destructive conditions of brain. It is not specific for MS. Please go ahead with the stroke referral and let us know if you have any other questions.
Avatar m tn The MRI showed no signs of a stroke and no damage to the brain. The nuerologist simply said he had symptoms of a stroke but the MRI didn't conclusively show anything. He simply said they would treat it as a stroke because he didn;t have any answers as to what was really going on. Lather that night, my dad stated that the pins and needles were getting worse in his hand and feet as well as up his right arm.
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 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 m tn i have been to a eye doctor optamaligst- and neo optimaligist and have had alot of tests done including eco,ekg, mri and a bioptsy of an artery to the right eye, everything is fine. i have a shadow in the rt eye and a loss of 50% of vision. they came up with a blocked blood vessel in the eye and said that it would not change for the better. get used to it ! am i stuck with this and would continued coke use make this worse, i'm also 58 yrs old.
Avatar m tn Yesterday I had a disturbance affecting vision in both eyes that lasted for about 20 minutes.
Avatar f tn Acephalgic migraine is a relatively uncommon variant of migraine in which there is nausea, photophobia, and other migraine symptoms but with no headache. While stroke symptoms usually come suddenly including paralysis, headache and inability to talk straight. If these symptoms persist, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Your medical history and direct clinical examiantion are important. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn His forward vision seemed dim and somewhat blurry often. His peripheral vision was cloudy and dark. What treatments are available to prevent the vision loss?

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 Hi, Last year I had two episodes of temporary loss of vision in my eye. It was like a curtain came down and I could not see out of that eye for around 10 minutes. I did not have a headache. I went in for an eye exam and everything looked good. I then went to my Internist and she had me go in for a Carotid Ultrasound. That also came back normal. The doctor labeled it Amaurosis fugax and told me to stay on a daily baby aspirin.
Avatar f tn If your visual changes happened very suddenly, in one eye, and it was like a black curtain coming down, this would be classical for a small stroke. Other times one can lose vision in both eyes but on the same side (e.g. loss of vision looking to the left). If your visual changes were distinct from these scenarios and weren't otherwise accompanied by any other symptoms or changes in exam, it's less likely a stroke and other causes should be sought.
Avatar m tn I think if the visual symptoms persist and you have other neurological symptoms such as dizziness, headache, weakness/fatigue or loss of sensation in any of your extremities, best to go the ER or your primary care provider to get a workup for a vascular cause of your visual symptoms such as a transient ischemic attack (TIA) which can be a precursor to a stroke.
Avatar n tn 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,sudden severe headache. Impairment of consciousness is very uncommon. If there are neurological symptoms persisting for more than 24 hours, it is classified as a cerebrovascular accident, or stroke.
Avatar n tn Do you ever get a migraine before or after the symptoms? I get migraine complications to the point of stroke like symptoms (left side paralysis, facial droop, and slurred speech) typically within 24 hours of having a migraine. A friend of mine gets the loss of vision, light headed, dizzy, tired, & nauseous with hers and she doesn't always feel the migraine at all. Other people are known to see an aura around people and things during an "episode".
