@linderskilde1993 Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, a place to give and get support.
You will notice I combined your identical posts. This new central post is in both the Eye Conditions and Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases groups.
If you do feel it could be a stroke you should seek immediate medical attention. Members on Connect are not qualified to diagnose.
In order for me to bring in/tag relevant members would you tell me a bit more information? You say that you do not have Parkinson's Disease and that you are worried it is a stroke. How long has this been happening, have you sought medical care, etc.?
I am waiting for a MR Scan in next week. I woke up some morning after a crazy Night. I dont remember everything from that Night, but i remember me really not being my self! At all. And when i woke up, i had crazy brain Fog, memory problems and Extreme decreased blinking. A week or two after i had some trouble walking, because it was like, that my right arm was acting weird. But because of The very decreased blinking, they checked me for parkinson, but no. I really dont know, and is waiting for a MR know. But maybe a stroke? Things feels better know
I'm glad to hear that you are having an MRI scan, @linderskilde1993. Your doctor will have more information after that.
You do not mention if you have other health problems or take any other meds. Has there been any history in your family of this type of problem?
I take Setralin, because of The anxiety all this created…not i dont take anything else. I have a history with healthanxiety, and both my grandparents got a stroke in The brain…
Is your brain MRI scheduled this week, @linderskilde1993? Once your doctor gets the results you will be able to put your mind at ease regarding the cause of this problem and perhaps have a treatment plan in place. Because you are not blinking as much as you were do your eyes feel dry?
I'm just wondering if you have had any injuries to your eyes, either as an adult or a child?
Its in two weeks, so a long time to go…i use eyedrops 8 times a day, that helps…but i got a very weird brainfog feeling in My head all The time. And sometimes my head hurts like crazy. It all came after that one Night, where i stopped blinking
I agree that two weeks does seem like a long time when you are anxious to get information and help. When you say, "my head hurts like crazy." Can you describe that a bit more? For example, is it a pain? Is it on one side or both sides? Does it come and go during certain times of the day or do you have it all the time? Do you have it more before or after meals?
