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.
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.

238582 tn?1365210634 There are a lot has happened for the last 6 month after my last chemo done in april. First we had a wonderful trip of Alaska Cruise except my husband has to write his grants most of time. He went to montain whitney with his group after, i'm sure he had great time. In Augest, my dad had a minor stock while he is in my brother's house, very luck his recovery is almost 90%, no physical problem at all, I was so torn beyween going back with them or stay here with my kids.
Avatar f tn I think it means since you have had a mini stroke(s) you are at risk for a stroke! TIA's temporarily interrupt the blood flow to certain parts of the brain but doesn't destroy brain cells or cause permanent damage. I would seek out advice from your PCP. If you are having any symptoms of a TIA go to ED immediately or call 911!!!!!!! I pray you never have a full blown stroke!! Take care!!!!
Avatar f tn She said that the day she had a stroke, she was admitted in the ICU and had a CVD bleed. What does that mean? Thanks you. And i was also wondering if what type of stroke she had because i don't have her records. She said she spent 2 days in the ICU, 1 month at the hospita, has left side paralysis and no peripheral vision on the left eye. Now she still has no peripheral vision on the left eye and still has weakness on the left side of her body. Thank you for your help.

Avatar m tn 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 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 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 n tn A copy of my 78 yr old mother's MRI given for slow, progressive weakness on left leg/hand, and "heavy, lead-filled left foot" as she describes it, coming over her during pas year or so. The left hand has little strength, but there's clear signs of her OA there. She has chronic edema in both lower legs, and is now using comp stockings, and has NOT been active or walking at all for more than that year.

754327 tn?1279198805 My graph is pointy but mood are on the high side more than depressed...I do have symptoms of depression but on the whole I feel pretty good about my self my self esteem is VERY high ...Is that bad? Things to watch, I think are impulse control and sex drive and promiscuity...(******* co-workers = BAD ******* Peter almost equally bad) Acting out takes for thought with small child at home...planned indiscretions. Poor judgement?

Avatar n tn And of course, the omnipresent prognosis issue. I understand that TIA in elderly especially indicates a much higher risk of a major stroke, but what are the main risk factors that can be used to predict prognosis?

2034625 tn?1392643292 Diplopia that I had hoped was just a mini-flare kind of thing is still here 10 days or so later and getting worse, not better. Add to that the fact that two fingers on my right had and my right toe not moving on command yesterday for the first time and I'm suspecting a new flare is trying to sneak its way into my life. Yesterday I had an appointment with my neuro that I have to drive an hour and a half to see.
