I took Mom to an accupunturist who also specialized in stroke..they put the needles in her scalp, face,tongue,leg, ankle. It did help a little, but not enough to make any difference and it the effects did not last. We went twice a week for over a year while in San Jose. If you go ahead with this, I would be interested to know how it works for you. Keep in touch. Good luck and take care.
I drove a big service van and carried hundreds of pounds of equipment up ladders sometimes three stories high all day long. I worked on 135 degree roofs in summer and below freezing in winter. I still love mechanical things. Oh and I did this after dropping out of Grad School for Art History.
Aspirin 325mg / day (just in case lesion is result of minor stroke) Keppra 500mg x2 /day (in case of seizures from lesion)
I am 57 and for the past 2 or 3 years following learning a meditation technique I have experienced very strange symptoms of energy moving around my body, vibrations, spinning sensations in my head, heat, muscles twitching or sensations like "bubbling". Also, feeling of energy being pulled up through the feet and in my spinal column. All very strange.
About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Most people who love their dogs are careful, and would NEVER leave dogs in cars in hot weather. But I saw the news tonight. In the UK two policemen (!) locked 2 German Shepherds in the police van, and when they came back the dogs were dead from heat stroke. Strangely, following this news item was a TV programme about the RSPCA (Animal welfare) where the officers found a dog dead in a car.
They know how you're feeling. Grief is an odd thing in animals. When we lost our first dog, Travis, it upset our cockatiel more than it did Chica. Petey Bird grew up with Travis and worshipped him. He followed Travis around the house, shared his food bowl, cleaned his whiskers. They were really best buddies. After a few days with Travis out of the house, Petey stopped singing. That was almost 5 years ago, and that bird has yet to utter one peep of any of his old songs.
I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Left untreated, a magnesium deficiency can lead to more life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, stroke, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and others. Magnesium's role in energy production. One of the primary roles of magnesium is to activate the adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy storage molecule, to create and store energy. Without energy, there is no life. Magnesium's role in relaxing muscles.
You see, I am a speech pathologist who works in a hospital treating patients with MS, Parkinson's, stroke, brain tumors, and you name it. Now I am the patient and it is not the role I want to play. My neurologist called meback and wants to see me Friday. He told me not to take the Mirapex. I am back to the gabapentin 100 mg and am to increase it to x2 a day. No lab results yet! Please be a hormone or vitamin deficiency!
Red meat has been conclusively linked to increased risk of heart attack, stroke and peripheral artery disease. Researchers have shown that independent of other risk factors, the risk of cardiovascular disease is increased. As if that isnt enough to compel you to step away from the next hamburger, I came across another story of contaminated beef that has been widely distributed throughout the states. Lets face it:spinach, peanut butter, beef.
my other neghbor said it looked like a heat stroke but she wasnt out for very long and she had water so i dont know how she could have had a heat stroke
they can not figure out what brought on this stroke! he was over heated, dehydrated,said it could have been a heat stroke but it was in oct 2007 not a hot month.I have had him in and out of doctors offices and still at a dead end.he has developed a few nose bleeds these past two days. should i be concerned?and what should i look for other than passing out spells and numbness. he turns pale out of nowhere.
I've had MS symptoms for years and she orders it only stroke protocol!! I'm going to go in today and ask her to order both (can they do one MRI for both inquiries: Stroke and MS?). I've read accounts from others on this website that their MS was discovered accidentally while having MRI for other suspected problems such as brain tumor etc. So maybe some MS lesions would still show up even if the MRI was ordered for another reason?. What are your thoughts on this?
I vacuumed like crazy, put all stuffed animals in plastic bags and threw them out in the garage, washed bedding like crazy and dried bedding in hot dryer. Heat kills lice. Vinegar rinse helps on the hair, along with a natural lice shampoo (no pesticides), combing through the hair, and blow drying the hair. You have to vacuum the house in all corners. The brown/blackish lice are adult lice. Lice starts out being clear and gain color from biting.
I don't see how she could have had heat stroke because she would not have disappeared. None of it makes any sense. One time while we were living in Alaska our beloved Big Tom disappeared for almost a month. I drove around every evening calling for him, hoping and praying I would find him. One morning he just showed back up at our front doorstep. Margy, I will try to get some notices up and leave some at our 2 Vets offices. You never know.... Thanks again, everyone for your prayers.
John heard all this and went mad at her saying shut up and stuff.... after we moved the Animals we could and the ones that will fit in the car she went to john you owe me £400? when he owes her £10? for electric money, so he told her to F*** off that his money is going on the baby now because he's going to be a good Dad. And she laughed....
00 worth of gas in them and drive for days!!!!!!! I got to meet Ronald McDonald in Fort Sill Okla. back in 1967. They had just opened that one up and he was there handing out balloons. I loved his shoes!!!!!!
My ex is fighting me over child support, my mom is decling rapidly and I have had to do most of the stuff with and about her, my son who is going off to college is being extremely difficult, so although I am really sad to see him go, I might kick his butt out the door in August, and Jerry's daughters are being a pain in the ***, well one in particular.
That led me to notice that the Bayer aspirin I've been taking daily for over 6 years is an NSAID! I have been able to sleep by keeping an ice pack wrapped in a towel in the bed with me, pressed against my knee. I'm more concerned that my blood glucose levels have risen dramatically during these past few weeks and I'm convinced my body is in stress trying to deal with the pain in my knee. I'm seeing the orthopedist on Friday to explore other options.
Anyways, she has NEVER been outside EVER cause she hasnt had her jab thingy's and she is too younng in my eyes. AND has showed NO SIGNS AT ALL of being in Heat... AT ALL... now if she is pregnant I dont know how, because its either her Brother?? Or another male Cat we have and those two DONT GET ON AT ALL.... they have been in many fights. Now we cant get the others spayed for a few weeks.?? She doesnt have pink or bigger nipples they look like the nipples of a male cat (sorry)...
I am a little confused...in your original posting you mentioned that the dog is marking (urinating) in your parents house and your recent comment says that he isn't peeing in the house. I agree with Dr. Jim's comments that neutering will have a beneficial effect, but it takes some "re-training" to let him know that it is not acceptable to mark in the house...thus Dr. Jim's comments about using stain/odor removers and trying to set up a good schedule for your dog.
Since being in another room, he was ending up back in our bed by 2 in the morning because my husband was getting him when he cried and bringing him back because he couldn't console him unless it was in our bed. Not that he didn't try; Greydon just knew he could get Daddy to cave easier than Mommy, lol. I was and am easily able to console Greydon most nights *in his room* by either rocking him or just laying him on his tummy in his crib and rubbing his back until he falls asleep.
It turned out that Shirley was out of remission again and was dying, it was her wish that no one knew about it, and she passed away in late July. In July I started having another dream that re-occured about my boyfriends grandma being in the hospital and my boyfriends mom crying. In late July my boyfriends grandma had a heart attack and a couple of weeks later a stroke. So now needless to say I am a believer in that dreams really can be a warning in some cases.
I agree with your vet keep him in. Is it really hot where you are.. is heat stroke a possibilty? Did the vet check for signs of head trauma/concussion? good luck!
Unless a seizure is brought on by heat exhaustion or worse, heat stroke, water makes no difference. The dog will only wake up wondering why he's all wet!
"Early diagnosis and prevention" is very good IF people go for check ups. I have a realitive who works in a hospital for the "Indigent" in CA and all they are asked is to pay $1.00 for each visit that covers everything, tests, treatments, meds the whole nine yards. Most of them do not pay that $1.00 (they know they cannot be refused and that is why they do it) but you can see them standing outside of the hospital smoking brand name cigarettes as in Marlboro.
I figured that maybe she likes the heat coming from it. So I plugged in a heating pad and put it on low. Now she likes to sleep on that. Is this okay? I do check to make sure it is not hot. I also noticed that she has become very attacked to my husband. When he sits down in his chair, she runs to him and likes to just lay on his chest. She has never done this before. It is funny seeing my husband try to work on his laptop while he has a cat laying across his chest! She will not move!! LOL!
Then I broke down as I saw FOAM in her mouth- I remembered she looked so scared and confused as the nurse said it was probably HEAT STROKE - so they took her back. Ten or Fifteen mins. pass and they call us in. I was so anxious to see her be okay - but the doctor came in alone- she said: I'm sorry, your dog just passed away. We asked her if she was sure that it was the right dog. ANGEL we said. She asked: The white dog right ? We were devestated...
This is because HRT causes breast cancer, ovarian cancer, blood clots, stroke, and dementia in a small number of women. HRT users who are 10 or more years past menopause are also at higher risk for heart disease If you have a history of cardiovascular disease or breast cancer, avoid using estrogen for hot-flash relief-other options are available.
