1474856 tn?1288289049 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. I may need to go outside of the network to get "real" treatment, not just some Dr calling me crazy and saying my depression is an issue. i have not have a depression problem for years. This is not depression. I am sad after having this go on for over a month now & worried, but me feeling this did not cause it.

Avatar f tn ) uncomfortable to swallow, a little burning in the chest area, and burps? Is that what people with reflux feel like all the time? Because thats how I feel. I can hardly eat! Lost 3 pounds last week.

Avatar f tn Last night I was having sex (21yo male, no smoker, non drinker, exercise normally) and after I orgasmed I felt sort of a pins and needles sensation on my left side of my body, but without the actual pins and needles (like someone is rubbing you with a brush kinda). It reminds me of peripheral neuropathy where your limbs feel a bit weak like you just ran or lifted. I did not have any visual disturbances, nor confusion, stunted speaking, or intense head/neck pain.
Avatar n tn t had a response on my first question concerning symptoms of a possible mini stroke or withdrawal symptoms from precocet or elavil. Should I take my husband to doctor - his office does not open until 9:00 am my time.
Avatar f tn we need to have faith in god & take a good recovery after a mini or a full stroke, good healthy diet, try no to stress out & take everything easy. i had a mini stroke on my rightside brain 29 years old with 3 kids 2 months ago it was a horrible experience still recovering from & praying for all the people with this same bad experience. God will help you.
Avatar m tn I remember words being said or written, plus a little about the context. However, within what seems like milliseconds, it dissipates and I cannot remember what the words/memories were. The sensation doesn't happen often, but when it does, there is usually a cluster of them over a few-hour period. It happened this morning, and the only thing I can link to it was having some unual and very vivid dreams overnight. I awoke feeling a little confused. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn My question is, does that sound like a mini-stroke to you? If so, what is the possibility of a major stroke. Thank You.
Avatar f tn I had a mini stroke 11 months ago. Physically I recovered quickly. When I left the hospital I thought I would be fine. But I became consummed with "What If's?" and so had a panic attack. I received some counselling because I was dealing with alot of panic and anxiety, I was just 36 years old when this happened. The psychologist helped alot, and it was just 4 visits. She also suggested some good reading.
Avatar m tn Yes, this morning I woke to feeling like I was losing my breath, my back of my head hurt. Between 1-10, 10 being the worst I felt like I had a 4.My left side of my face and back of my left ear were tingiling and my left arm felt heavy with my thumb some what falling asleep. Also right above my left knee cap it some times either falls asleep or tingly feeling. I'm currently under alot of stress at my current job, and fixing to see the doctor tommorow morning cause Im worried ans scared.
Avatar m tn However in the last 5 years on an almost daily basis or at least multiple times weekly I have had auras when asking the Dr about these... what I call mini spazz attacks basically I would jerk suddenly feel a little off when this happened my doctor said essentially they are like mino seizures because I am awake and aware they are happening, come to find out these are actually simple partition seizures.
Avatar f tn Sounds like you had a TIA with a residual effect unfortunately. My father had the same thing happen to him. All the best with OT.
Avatar n tn How does one know if they have had a mini-stroke especially if their Doctor is not willing to do further tests? What tests of the head or brain are available to determine this ? Do tell, please, as my Doctor says there is nothing I can do but live with the attacks which I have now had 4 of in just over a week ! He seems to think they are just Migraine Variants but they really present like a min-stoke and my family thinks s too. Ta, K.
Avatar f tn I know something was happening but just not sure what. Some people said it could be a mini stroke. Has anyone dealt with this before?
Avatar f tn Although a stroke can manifest as a transient visual disturbance, that is relatively unusual. But something is going on, and you best have it checked out. Anything having to do with vision is VERY important. You cannot be turned down for medical assistance in the event of possible blindness because of financial reasons. If it happens? Good! Take them to court! (Just make sure that you sue for the cost of a chauffer).
Avatar n tn Hence CTHead With/Without contrast - what does this mean. I cannot have an MRI which is what was wanted as I have a sacral nrve stimulator inside me. Ifthe worsse happens I will have to have this out, have the scan and then the stimulator put back. I really do not want. this. What could be causing the continual sensations I am having. I can control the arm and hand although it feels as if it is floating. I can also still carry anything that I was at the time of the attack.
Avatar f tn He has had 2 spells since where he was hospitalized, they did not know the first time if it was a mini stroke, on the second time they ruled out mini strokes and diagnosed him with seizures. He was put on seizure meds, the dosage has been changed 3 times. He seems to be doing well now. But he does nothing, he don't get dressed lots of days, he watches TV or sleeps. He was never like this before, he has been outside a couple of times, to ride the mower. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn I am 49 years old and i had a mini stroke. I regain my memory back athough sometimes i have to wait and think about it awhile before i can remember the answer. my speech is not clear as i have to struggle to get certain words out an i find myself repeating words a lot. how long will this last or will it ever go away?.I can move all parts of my body but when I bend I am so afraid i will have another dizzy spell and have another stroke. How long will I feel this way?
Avatar f tn I had a cardiac ablation 2 weeks ago for an irregular heartbeat. It was nothing life threatening with my heart, but the "quivering" in the upper chambers may cause blood to pool and perhaps clot, and that was the danger my cardiologist was concerned about and wanted to get the heart rhythm under control. He couldn't find the area that was causing the problem in the heart ("electrical") so he put me on 25 mg of metropolol, a beta blocker to help with the rhythm.
Avatar m tn but i still feel like a freak. i mean they dont know what ive been through, they dont know anything and still. like one day me and wife of ten years went to brother in law and he past around this picture he found of a guy dress like a ugly girl and was making fun of me but i blew it off i just said " well your the one looking at those type of pictures. and yes my wife knows what i been through and what i deal with and still stands beside me and so does all my chilren. its been rough.

Avatar n tn My husband had an Acute CVA August 2002 then became addicted to percocet. Has been in rehab and I think drug free for approx. 2 weeks. Was put on Elavil to help sleep insomnia at that time. Quit taking it and this morning says he doesn't feel right. Thinks he might have had a mini stroke. Right arm doesn't feel right and says speech is different. How do I know if this is Elavil related? Should I call doctor? Will a C-Scan tell me if a mini stroke has occurred?
