Is thalmus stroke related to having tremors in leg?

I HAD A THALAMUS STROKE IN SEPTEMBER. IT HAS LEFT ME WITH NEUROPATHY ON MY LEFT SIDE FROM MY SCALP TO THE BOTTOM OF MY FOOT, HAND BEING THE WORST. Since October I have been experiencing tremors in my left leg and foot and now on my right side. I was hospitalized in October and November for this and they can't find out why this happens. Is this part of my stroke and something like nuculi were affected. Will this go away?

Dear Friend.
Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Thalamic stroke can lead to a syndrome called as Dejerine–Roussy syndrome or thalamic pain syndrome which develops after a thalamic stroke. The lesions, usually present in one hemisphere of the brain, most often cause an initial lack of sensation and tingling in the opposite side of the body. Weeks to months later, numbness can develop into severe and chronic pain.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you want to discuss your issues further, you may please ask me through Premium Query directed on my name. I will help you my best.
Stay Healthy.

My wife suffered a stroke on 5/21/14. It was on the left side of her brain and she was hemiplegic on the right side for a while. Through therapy she has regained much of the use of her right side of her body, hand and leg. Not perfect, but much improved. She now has developed some tremors in her left hand noticed during the past two days. Is this a common occurrence?

Hello and thank you for listening.10 years ago, I had an episode of what was originally thought of as a stroke by the doctor I went and saw. When it happened, it was during the night in my sleep(I remember feeling very unusual during my sleep). When I woke up, I couldn t see out of my left eye(it was like a white-grey covering was over it), my left side of my face was droopy, I felt extremely agitated without having an emotional cause for it and my speech was slurred. After they ran tests at the hospital, they couldn t find anything like a blood clot but thought I could have had a mini-stroke . The doctor at that time asked me if I had ever been checked for MS because I was a seemingly healthy 35 year old. I said no, and they scheduled me for a specialist. After going to the specialist, they didn t see lesions in my brain, but they did find the proteins in my spinal fluid. I was placed on prednisone at that time. A month later, they did another spinal tap and it didn t show anything. I was having side effects from the prednisone that seemed to make the symptoms worse so I went off of it. The doctor started treating me symptom specific with cortisone shots in my feet to help the pain that would cause balance issues. I was also placed on a pain medication related to feet that caused temporal seizures during my sleep( I can t remember the name). I went off of this and started taking biofeedback and pain management classes with meditation and yoga that seemed to help and also lost 50 pounds. This seemed to help me keep it under control for about 5 years until I started having tremoring in my left hand(my middle finger seems to be especially affected), strange, severe pains in my knees and elbows, tingling in the elbows and knees but also in my big toe joints, but also this weird tremoring feeling during the night that seemed to start from my trunk/abdomen area and radiate out to my extremities. I got checked for MS, Lupus, and Rheumatoid arthritis. Nothing was found. I still have this off and on but now over the last year on my left leg it swells by the ankle and I have this burning topical pain when I touch it. I will also get this pain in the front of my neck and radiating with both arms. I sometimes get weird numb areas on my face and head, and now I m getting the sudden, severe pain in my knees again during the night while I sleep along with the weird tremoring from my trunk. I feel this pain in my lower back. I am at my wit s end because all of it affects my sleep(I get a sudden startling insomnia and I can t go back to sleep) and it is affecting my work and sometimes personal relationships because of how out of it and exhausted I feel. What should I do?
