Has anyone had a left-sided stroke with left sided paralysis?

I am 39 years old. I had a stroke in December of 2006. Doctors told me I had a left sided stroke. Everything that I have read tells me that a left sided stroke causes right sided paralysis. I had left sided paralysis. Should I be considering checking out another neurologist?

Talk to your doctor again for a full explanation of what kind of stroke you had. You can also request a copy of your medical records and get them right away. What he said doesn't sound right, but you might not have had any clarity of mind at the time you heard about your diagnosis. Even family members can be worried and confused then. See if you can clear it up with the doctor who first diagnosed you, and also give him an update on any other concerns you have been having since your stroke. God Bless.

Thanks for using Helathcaremagic. Very rarely this can happen on same side in few people. Before that confirm the side on the scan. If CT scan done then it may not be accurate. MRI is more accurate. Get clarified from the same neurologist. No need for another neurologist. Bye

Hello -

Wife is 65 years old and suffers from extreme constipation. She receives excellent medical care, UNC & Duke graduates, but neither her primary physician or her plethora of specialists seem to be able to offer practical suggestions.

Situation resulted from surgery in 2001 four “flat back” syndrome secondary to scoliosis. Nerve damage occurred during surgery with many negative outcomes, such as, chronic pain, bladder and bowel dysfunction, some paralysis in right leg.

She manages well, in spite of, these difficulties and prior to surgery was high functioning in very responsible position.

She takes heavy narcotics for pain which, of course, contributes to her problem. Also, she takes Miralax and copious fluids.

Bowel movements are unpredictable and can take hours to complete. This part of her disability severely constricts her quality of life.

Are there any suggestions, short of a colostomy, which might alleviate her symptoms of constipation, as well as, relieving the constipation itself.

I understand this is a complicated medical situation, but I am interested only in the bowel management issues.

Any suggestions? Any recommendations? Any solutions?

Thanks very much for your time and attention to this problem.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? There was a concern that my 10 year old might have periodic paralysis, about 1 1/2 years ago. It has not been confirmed. This morning he woke up with his head moving from side to side for less than 30 seconds and his legs from knees down shaking. Never happened before. Is that a symptom?

I am being watched for an enlarged ascending aorta . This was caused by years with a bicuspid aorta valve (which has since been replaced). I have recently developed sleep numbness in my fingers. Could it be related to the ascending aorta?
