Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke signs and symptoms in women


Avatar_n_tn Hello! Just wanted to put <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my two cents. Ok I had a m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Stroke</span> (TIA) and this is what I suggest according to your symptoms. Maybe you only had a TIA, where there is no damage.
Avatar_n_tn I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Stroke</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the cerebellum and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> of a m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Stroke</span> that they classified as 'old'. I fortunately did not have ongoing loss of speech, or weakness in limbs etc...but have suffered from weird dizziness and electric shock feelings in my head. They seem to get better - but then get wrose again....Dr's are saying it is maybe anxiety --but is not. I have had anxiety before and these are different.
Avatar_n_tn During my fifth month of pregnancy I did have something like a m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Stroke</span> while I was driving. I spent a week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the hospital and was immediately put on bed rest. He was born 2 weeks early by a planned c-section and was born not breathing. He was under weight and still has health problems like asthma, allergies, and an immunity defense abnormality. My body suffered as well. They were unsure if I could even carry this baby full term, let alone deliver.
Avatar_n_tn My husband and I would like to have a child, but are unsure about my health issues and pregnancy. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Stroke</span> was due to a dissection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my left vertebral artery and I have been told that it has healed completely. However, I experience dizziness and unwell feelings around menstruation, which I'm sure is due to hormones, which makes me nervous about pregnancy. Any information would be helpful. I have looked on the internet and have not really found anything.
Avatar_n_tn in the heart which can travel to the vessels of the brain and possibly cause a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Stroke</span>. Have you seen a Neurologist? Some of the symptoms you describe sound like Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Also, when you mention symptoms of weakness, fatigue and "reflux" I begin to worry that you may have some severe stomach irritation, possibly even to the point where you may have an ulcer and/or intestinal bleeding.

Avatar_n_tn Try doing some outdoor walking and jogging and compare if you have the same flu like symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> Gym and outside. If you only have them in the gym then you are allergic to something, you have to find that out and prevent it. Take care!
Avatar_n_tn Now you are going to tape the key in a small heavy stock of paper and fold it Over and tape it shut (just like a m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i greeting card) place it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> an envelope, put your own address on it and mail it!!!!!!! you wanna make sure the key is taped strait up and down in the heavy paper not sideways (because mail machines bend envelopes) and if your safe key has a molded black end on it take it to a key maker and get a totally flat key made! and throw away the other keys! only have one!

I have been told that carrying the thalassemia trait has no obvious symptoms, but I've been poking around forums a little bit, and the symtoms I experience seem to be fairly common.

Avatar_n_tn I just reread my post and realized I didn't post all my symptoms. I basically have constant pressure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my head and ears that varies between annoying and feeling like it's about to burst. The throbbing headaches are not constant but happen quite a bit the more I move my head. Sometimes I feel a squeezing sensation in my head.

10947_tn?1281407852 Foods high in antioxidants, such as blueberries and cooked artichokes, have been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, cancer, Parkinson’s disease and memory loss. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a study published <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> May 2013 and conducted by the University of Navarra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> Spain, researchers observed 522 participants, between the ages of 55 and 80, with conditions that put them at high risk for cardiovascular disease.
572651_tn?1333939396 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> summer and below freezing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> winter. I still love mechanical things. Oh and I did this after dropping out of Grad School for Art History.

Avatar_n_tn I was diagnosed about 9 years ago. I have an arachnoid cyst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my brain (left temporal lobe) and had a shunt inserted in 1998. I've also had 4 mini Strokes. They were cause by hypercoagulable cerebrovascular disease with a circulating IGM (44) ( anticardiolopid antibody syndrome). These have all been stable for the last 10 years and I have not had any major problems. I also have an autoimmune disorder which causes inflamation in my body, especially in my legs.
Avatar_n_tn It scares me, especially since my husband had brain surgery less than 2 years ago- (symptoms completely different of course) I am 35 years old, the only time I remember hitting my head really hard is when I was in elementary school and I fell and hit my head on a tile floor. I have had a history of passing out and having seizures but the doctors never figured out for sure what caused it and it hasn't happened for a few years.
Avatar_n_tn I have always been very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> control and dependant and then these panic attacks started. I just finished my 2nd pack of pills and that is the only thing that I have done different. The attacks came within the 1st wk or so of starting the pack.,so I have no idea how long before they go away. My OBYGN thinks that there is something more physcological going on with me but I am telling all who reads this that it is this PILL YAZ!!!!
Avatar_n_tn I have been taking a regimen of vitamins that has helped a lot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my symptoms and comfort. I every now and then get really bad itching, but not as much. The combo is acidophillus, garlic, grapefruit seed extract, Vitamin C, and echinacea. I don't know the exact mg, but just look it up. Something that recently happend to me was an abnormal result on a pap smear. Does anyone know if this can be from GSB? This is soemthing new, so I haven't had a chance to ask my gyno yet. Hope this helps.
544292_tn?1268886268 Went on to say that it had been used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> Europe for a couple years and only 4 )if I recall correctly) caabuse/dependence had occured. We thought it was great... we often DID have to detox people from opiates who had genuine pain. Great that at least we could do something about the pain while we tried to get them through withdrawal. Second day after we had been giving a couple folks ultram, started noticing that nurses didn't need to go find patients when time for their next dose of ultram...
Avatar_n_tn I have had the same symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my lower left leg. I Googled the problem and found your comments. I am going to the Dr. on Monday. I will post what ever I find.
Avatar_n_tn I have had a hysterectomy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> '95' and then my ovaries out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> '96' so those weren't options <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> this case. I find it amazing that we can have these symptoms but no diagnosis. I don't deal well with Dr.s who say that the test came out negative isn't that wonderful. Yea well thats great so where is the pain coming from. I am starting to doubt the medical industry. in as much as technology today is phenominal, people are still in pain and they cannot seem to find the reason for the pain.
Avatar_n_tn for depression, and then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> early 2005 had another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Stroke</span>. He was then started on Topamax. He has lost 40 lbs, and he cannot afford to lose any more. But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss. I think maybe my blood pressure will also decrease, and I am sure my feet and joints won't hurt anymore if I can get this extra 60 lbs off me. As I said, I am 66 years young, and am interested if any other young seniors are in my shoes.
Avatar_n_tn Have stopped upper body workouts without improvement <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> symptoms. Going to ditch the underwire bra for a few weeks and see what happens.
712042_tn?1254572809 This Sleep Study result, on top of my current heart state with MVD, put me at great risk for a heart attack, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Stroke</span> and m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i-Strokes-TIA (transient ischemic attacks) all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the absence of any CAD.

Avatar_n_tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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...
Avatar_n_tn When my endocrinologist diagnosed subclinical hypothyroidism (TSH level of 4.11 and free T4 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the normal range), the symptoms I was complaining about the most energetically were symptoms of hyperthyroidism.
