How sad!: What a tough time for you! You don't say what her condition is at present, but it sounds dire. Talk to the doctor and your family, and a second opinion and even a third is always a good idea. It helps to write things down so you remember better what was said and to have your questions written down, too, so you don't forgot them when you are talking with the docs. Best wishes to you! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Does a sroke in the left anterior cerebral territory and deep white matter cause central post stroke pain syndrome?
Central pain: Central pain from stroke typically follows thalamic strokes. This part of the brain not in the anterior cerebral territory however this does serve the orbital frontal cortex that could in theory cause some changes in how your brain processes pain. Stroke in young adults requires an extensive workup including a hypercoagulable evaluation. Best health. ...Read more

2.Multiple strokes in the cerebral mca
3. Peduncle stroke. Where can I more info on the strokes
This aged, disabled person, a consequence of a catastrophic cerebral event, or “stroke“, has been relegated to a wheelchair …in a nursing facility. Having objected to placement in that facility it has falsely alleged this disabled person is “..Incapacit
This : This appears to be primarily a legal matter and i suggest to contact an attorney who is knowledgeable in this area. Since the issue of capacity of that individual has been raised, it may be helpful to obtain an opinion of a geriatric psychiatrist as to the nature of that individual's disability. Oftentimes a stroke could significantly affect the person's speech and hence the ability to communicate while leaving the ability to think, reason and make informed decisions intact. Distinguishing between these possibilities could be important in planning future care for this individual. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What's the difference between a cerebral vascular accident (stroke) & a transient ischaemic attack (tia)?
Definitive damage: A TIA describes stroke like symptoms that resolve without other intervention within a short timespan, usually less than 1 hour although the classic definition uses 24 hours. A stroke describes irreversible brain tissue damage caused by a lack of blood flow (technically a bleed is also a form of stroke). This damage can be diagnosed definitively on a MRI scan, no such damage can be seen in the tia. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: In-utero stroke patients come in all shapes and sizes. Some strokes are large and occur late in the pregnancy and can produce significant problems in the child including cp. Other strokes may be small and occur early enough in the pregnancy that the brain can repair itself before the child is born, and the child will develop perfectly normally. Most cases and outcomes lie in between these examples. ...Read more
Mechanisms: Usually, represents narrowing and closure of a large artery such as carotid or middle cerebral, but can be due to a clot circulating from a distant source, such as heart. A myocardial event might trigger a stroke in a susceptible older patient, and, in some cases, trauma can tear a blood vessel in neck (dissection). Causes include smoking, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipemia, high homocysteine. ...Read more
Words: Pathogenesis is the origin or development of a disease. Ischemic stroke is damaged brain tissue due to loss of circulation (like from a clot)(as opposed to stroke from bleeding). Left cerebral hemisphere is the dominant area in most people and usually controls speech and right sided motor functions. ...Read more
Hot is cold cold is hot pain all over focusing at the cerebral cortex could this be a sign i had a stroke? If no what else can cause this
Not Clear: It seems that you are saying that you have abnormal/unexpected sensations over a part of your head or scalp. The actual cerebral cortex can't been seen(except at surgery) and doesn't have sensation. What you seem to be describing on the scalp sounds like a local peripheral neuropathy. This means there may be some nerves in the scalp that are transmitting abnormal sensations. ...Read more
It can be: CP is defined as a disorder of motion & posture based on an injury to the developing nervous system at any point from the early stages of pregnancy up to the 3rd birthday. A stroke in utero is that sort of injury.Such issues as cord events, where the flow of blood was pinched off for a period & intrauterine infection are other possible causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a cerebral stroke 2yrs back.doesnt hav physical disability.now often sudden blood clots appear on body and wipe away automatically?
Minimize stroke risk: About 7% of women ages 60-79 have an ischemic stroke, with a .2 to .5% risk of a new stroke per year. Having had a stroke or another type of blood clot does increase the risk of having another stroke. Other risk factors for persistent clots include high cholesterol, hypertension, smoking, obesity, diabetes, drug use, and lack of exercise: thankfully all of these can be treated or addressed! ...Read more
Can you tell me how the diagnosis would be made whether a stroke was caused by hemorrhage or other cerebral infraction (thrombus/embulus)?
CT or MRI : A Brain CT scan would show if there is a brain hemorrhage but it does not show other causes of stroke well soon after it occurs. A brain MRI is the best test to see stroke soon after it occurs and show if caused by blood spillage or lack of blood flow. It can also show how long ago a stroke happened (new vs. old) ...Read more
