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 n tn I have been having counselling once per week which does seem to help alleviate (although does not remove) my symptoms a bit. I'm seeing my stroke specialist next week to talk to him in more detail. If I have anything else that may be useful I'll post it.

Avatar n tn My father had a similar sounding stroke on Dec. 8, 2006. He seemed pretty alert, spoke well, could swallow, etc. His major problems were left side paralysis and double vision. After about three weeks, he took his first steps and within 2 weeks of that was walking 40 feet with a walker. He was not able to start moving his left hand until about 4 weeks in. At that point, he could move all fingers and make a loose fist.

Avatar f tn Take note of the episode, keep logging symptoms etc. over the next months it's very important to do that. Your symptoms in medical terms I think were mild Ataxia (bad coordination) and maybe Dysarthria if "mechanically" you were unable to speak. Blurred vision could have come from something affecting the optical nerves. How are you feeling now have all the symptoms regressed completely? Did you notice a slight loss of vision or visual field?
Avatar n tn Visual and auditory hallucinations were quite exceptional and debilitating. Skin was on fire and all the rest. Symptoms lasted for three to four weeks. Even had to learn how to walk again. My choice the last time was to get someone to sign me into the psych ward at the hospital. I got help and support and am doing well.

Avatar n tn Hi, Stroke symptoms typically start suddenly and in most cases do not progress further. This will depend on the area of the brain affected, the more extensive the area of brain affected, the more functions that are likely to be lost. You can have this evaluated further for proper diagnosis. Complete medical history and physical examination are important in assessing if other tests should be done. This link may be helpful: http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn Stroke symptoms typically develop rapidly (seconds to minutes). Pre-hospital care professionals will typically want to identify stroke risk very rapidly.
Avatar n tn • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause” Taken from http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?
Avatar m tn //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini_stroke Smoking and drinking are both high risk factors for stroke. I would suggest that you make a radical decision to give up both and maintain a healthier life-style.
538894 tn?1389310148 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiopathic_intracranial_hypertension You could also be having TIA or transient ischemic attacks (“often colloquially referred to as “mini stroke”) is caused by the changes in the blood supply to a particular area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that persists, by definition, for less than 24 hours; if symptoms persist then it is categorized as a stroke.” Refer: http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn The swelling obstructs the sinus openings and prevents mucus from draining normally. This creates a moist environment conducive to infection. The symptoms are usually head ache,facial pain,nasal congestion.It does not cause blurred vision/speech or numbness.Maybe your severe head ache could have given the impresson of blurred vision but not to your other complaints. Since you are only 22 years of aon't seem to be a candidate for either TIA/stroke.Unless as a rare case you have had a TIA?
Avatar n tn Hi, In addition to the above CNS pathways, the brainstem also consists of the 12 cranial nerves.
Avatar n tn Hi, 'Myoclonus is brief, involuntary twitching of a muscle or a group of muscles. It describes a symptom (as opposed to medical sign) and, generally, is not a diagnosis of a disease. ' 'Myoclonus may develop in response to infection, head or spinal cord injury, stroke, brain tumors, kidney or liver failure, lipid storage disease, chemical or drug poisoning, or other disorders.
Avatar m tn ' 'Myoclonus may develop in response to infection, head or spinal cord injury, stroke, brain tumors, kidney or liver failure, lipid storage disease, chemical or drug poisoning, or other disorders. Benign myoclonic movements are commonly seen during the induction of general anesthesia with intravenous medications such as etomidate and propofol.' You could read more about the condition at the following links - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myoclonus and www.mayoclinic.
Avatar f tn The symptoms usually last for an hour and then go away. Sometimes the symptoms persist then it is categorized a s a stroke. The symptoms depend on the part of brain involved and include weakness on one side of the body, dizziness and numbness tingling and temporary loss of vision. There is an ABCD score which predicts the likelihood of getting a stroke based on age, BP, clinical features and duration of TIA. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn I am having the exact same symptoms. I went to the hospital and they couldn't figure out what it was that was the causing the pain. They didn't "think" it could be signs of an anurysm. I went to see my doctor today, he had me tested for Temporal Arteritis. I am only 17 years old, however, and generally temporal arteritis occurs in people (especially women) over 60 years old. I will not get the test results back until tomorrow.
Avatar n tn About 3 hours after my symptoms started they did a CT scan - it was normal, by then, all of my symptoms were gone. About 11 hours after my symptoms started they did an MRI without contrast -- it also came back normal. I was discharged and they put "acute pheriphial vertigo" on my discharge papers. I followed up with an ENT and he said he didn't think it was vertigo.
Avatar f tn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell's_palsy Sounds like Bell's Palsy to me, and for all the other alternative causes of such symptoms, I would rather it be Bell's Palsy. http://www.dizziness-and-balance.com/disorders/unilat/bells.
Avatar n tn The thing that I don’t understand, is that I have never had bad cholesterol or high blood pressure which I have read is the main causes of mini stroke. Yet he cannot explain the other symptoms which I don’t understand. I would just like another opinion.
867582 tn?1311630997 Hi, MSers, Well, for the second time this summer, I ended up at the emergency room (because my primary MD told me to go when I mentioned my symptoms which were very TIA/stroke-like). Even though I try to stay out of the heat, this summer I have overdone things twice and have had to go to the ER twice.
Avatar n tn “A transient ischemic attack (TIA, often colloquially referred to as “mini stroke”) is caused by the changes in the blood supply to a particular area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that persists, by definition, for less than 24 hours; if symptoms persist then it is categorized as a stroke.” So you should rule out high blood pressure, diabetes etc which can cause TIA. However it is difficult to diagnose without examining and a detailed history.
Avatar n tn None of these findings are present on diffusion weighted sequence to be suggestive of acute stroke Normal flow void noted in major cerebral vessels. There is slight increased mucosal thickening noted in both maxillary sinuses. Visualized portion of the orbit seems to be normal but right eye does seem to be slightly deviated to the right though it could be an exotropia but at the same time could be positional as well.
Avatar n tn Hi, my name is lindsey and i am 18 years old and at first i had experienced severe back lower back pain. I then had some stroke symptoms like numbness, tingling sensations etc associated with pain in my lower back and neck. I had seen many doctors and run many tests incuding xrays, mri's and others. i have taken muscle relaxers, 800 mg ibeuprofen, and more than i forget. i went to a neurologist and they did some more tests which all came out clear.
Avatar n tn After two hours of increased symptoms and continually trying to stop her self fainting (she is prone to blackouts) she had tingling in her legs, arms and LHS of face. She was admitted to hospital. Blood tests, x ray and ECG were negative but she was kept in due to possibility of mini stroke. She was released the following day. She continued to feel ill with shortness of breath, dizziness and sickness.
589143 tn?1291501773 Hi! Well, it sounds like you have very bad migraines that are very hard to treat. Some people only get migraines once or twice a year. Some people only get migraines once or twice a month. If they are able to find a medication that can help them with the pain, then they have their migraines under control and that is about as much as they can do for their migraines.
