You had a chance to go to a doctor right then, you should have . You are not pregnant?, skipped a meal, got dehydrated? It happened to me because of dehydration. But I'm a male and you have other factors.

I am 82. I fell in the yard while watering flowers. On June11, I fell directly on my face. I do not remember falling until the second before impact. I saw green grass, heard a thud, moved my head as sunglasses nose piece cut my nose in 3 places. My garden hose was on spray setting and was spraying on my body. I laid there several minutes, then checked to see if I had anything broken. My face began to swell as I hit my right eye socket, right chest area. I began to roll toward the garden hose reel container, when I neighbor appeared. He got me a lawn chair si I could pull myself up and sit down. My nose had blood clots hanging and neighbor s cleaned me. My doctor and I cannot find a cause of my falling. I had ekg, neurology exam, and a 24 hour EKG. I am going to PT and slowly getting better. My DPT, is a doctor of PT. she uses Grafton tools and message and exercises. Next week she will do dry needles treatment. I do not remember falling, Ido not remember if I was dizzy. We are trying to figure out why I fell. It was 1:30 PM. I did not trip, I just found myself face down and had fallen Any suggestions?

I am 60 years old & have been on plavix 75, and an aspirin for 2 years since my mini strokes. I was previously on caduet 5/40 for about 8 years prior to the mini strokes. I have recently developed muscle weakness in my legs to the point of almost collapsing walking from the car, grocery shopping, etc. I do water aerobics twice a week, and zumba once a week. Is there anything more I can do to re-instate my muscle strength?

The question is about my son. 18 yr old athlete. He was lifting weights doing an overhead press. He felt a pop or crack in his neck and some pain. very soon after that he got a Migrane headache. He has got them before when he didn t have good sleep habits. This Migrane seemed stronger than previous ones but he did not throw up. The next day he woke up with a very sore neck and numbness on the left side of his body. The numbness was in the back of his arm and down his leg. We took him to the hospital and he started a bunch of tests. MRI s, Echo, ect. Things they found were. The possibility of two very small dots on the occiptial lobe of the brain which they said could be there and if so could represent a stroke but also could not really be there. They said he has Chiari Type 1 which could be the cause. They don t believe there has been a disection of arteries in the neck according to MRI s. He did not have a PFO. We left the hospital yesterday with a wide range of possibilities from very scary to no big deal. He continues to have numbness in his left arm and leg. Also he hasn t had a stool movement for a couple of days which is atypical. My questions are 1. If its just a pinched nerve then how long would the numbness typically last. 2. from looking at the information on the web is it possible he had a Sporadic Hemiplegic Migraine (SHM) and if so how long does the numbness usually last in those cases. 3. Does the Chiari have an effect on the nervous system after an injury. The web seems contradictory in this area. 4. Can a stroke or mini stroke be associated with a minor neck injury. 5. How do we know if the chiari is affecting his nervous system. My son is a college football player and its a big part of his life. So this has the family very concerned.

3 days ago I had heat rise from the neck to the head and numbness on my left side of the face and arm. I went to the hospital and after a few tests, the doctors concluded that I had a TIA. After coming home from the hospital, I'm still getting some numbness and tiggling in my face and arms. Is this normal to happen after a TIA?
