Do these syptomns sound like she whould have a CAT to prove or disprove any possibilty of a Mild Stroke due to heavy Wine and Smoking? Since she is hospitalized presently recovering form her broken hip, should they also test for a stroke?
If there is concern for depression, treatment of it can improve many symptoms. Seizures or abnormal EEGs after stroke is common. Treatment of the seizures (or severely abnormal EEG patterns) with antiepileptics such as lamictal should help improve some of your symptoms with the thinking. If the neuropsychological evaluation showed specific problems, cognitive rehabilitation to help you with those specific areas may benefit you.
Then they could have given him blood thinners to help him break down the clot with no risk of it being a bleed in his brain. They didn't know what kind of stroke he had for more than 24 hours and then he had had a major stroke. I asked for him to be transferred to a hospital with and MRI but they said they couldn't and that he was getting the same treatment that they would be giving him at Western or Sunny Brook.
regardless of his risk, let's say high risk (unprotected sex during Dec2006) 2 weeks after symptoms, or 3 weeks, gernerlly people will have enough antibody , right? Thanks.
We differ a bit in regards to what brough us to the doctor - I had stroke like symptoms. After initial dx I went for a 2nd opinion to make me feel more confident. My doc suggested it, but I already had it lined up I was so sure he was wrong. Maybe that is something that would help put your mind at ease too...Just a thought.
My dad has recently (within the last week) had a mild stroke. He is only 48 and reasonably healthy so it came has a huge shock. The stroke was a clot to the left side of his brain. His memory has not been affected and his doctors are very impressed with the progress of his recovery in the short time since the stroke. They believe after all of his rehabilitation he should be back to 100% independance. The outlook is good in that respect even though at the moment its all still very saddening.
I have BAM (Basilar Artery Migraine) with Aura. The aura is stroke like symptoms. I have had 27 full-blown episodes that render me unable to talk, walk, or control limbs on the right side. I have researched this to the hilt. If you will e-mail me at: ***@****, I will share my real experiences.
There are some types of Herpes viruses, such as vericella or chicken pox, that can induce a vasculitis and lead to stroke, you would have had an outbreak of your Herpes near the time of your stroke and therefore you would have known it. One needs to find out the etiology of the stroke and try to limit the factors inducing the stroke. Pregnancy can induce a hypercoaguable state and therefore this should be fully worked up including the Leiden factor and thrombin gene.
Patients with delirium have longer hospitalizations and a poorer prognosis, and are at increased risk of developing dementia. The identification of the patients at risk and non-pharmacological preventative interventions are the key measures in the management of delirium. Delirium is defined as a transient, usually reversible, cause of cerebral dysfunction and manifests clinically with a wide range of neuropsychiatric abnormalities.
You should consult your doctor about it, also you have to be alert as a TIA may increase the risk of stroke and be cautious about neurological symptoms like weakness of muscles.
Your symptoms are continuous that would rule out stroke as a cause of these symptoms, with the MRI you describe. I can't tell you what your symptoms are from because I can't examine you. MS might give you symptoms that persist but your lesions do not sound like demyelinating lesions nor are they in the usual location. You will have to make a decision about a second opinion concerning the clamp device.
Numbness/tingling, lower left side. Never had any of the other symptoms even almost 20 yrs later.
Re: Mild stroke and related issues [ Follow Ups ] [ Post Followup ] [ The Neurology Forum ] [ FAQ ] Posted by CCF Neuro MD on July 12, 1997 at 08:27:28: In Reply to: Mild stroke and related issues posted by Alicia Freed on July 03, 1997 at 16:39:36: A few weeks ago I awoke to find that the left side of my body was weak and numb. Not the extreme that I couldn't walk or function, but enough to disturb me greatly.
Discuss with your physicians the use of anticoagulation therapy and further evaluation. The side effects of anticoagulation therapy has to be weighed against the future risk of stroke incidence. Meanwhile, stay calm and relax.Unnecessary worryimg would not help. Just keep a close follow up with your physician. I hope this helps. Keep us posted regarding your progress.
I have had migraines since I was 16 years old I am now 27. Every migraine that I have has stroke like symptoms(loss of sight, numbness of half of body, dizziness, loss of speech, severe headaches for days after, and a foggy feeling in my brain). The first time I had an episode I was taken to the emergency room where the doctors gave me shots to get rid of the nausea, this didn't help at all. They did a CAT scan and found nothing wrong.
Just like the time I had a stroke, I had no warning signs, no symptoms, felt fine. I even went into the ER after the stroke and they sent me home, I looked fine to them. I have to find a way to not worry about dying spontaneously. If it's my time, then I guess it's my time. Until then, I need to let it go and enjoy life again, skips and blips and all.
A word of caution though, I do recommend going for a second opinion on the diagnosis but do not stop the blood thinners before you know for sure you are clear otherwise you will put yourself at risk of stroke. But go to your GP and get the thyroid test to be sure because you do seem kind of young for afib but I am not an expert on afib. Hopefully someone with more experience with the condition can jump on with some input. Good luck. I hope you can work it out so you can follow your dreams.
The metabolism of aspartame in the human body and the proposed toxicities from its metabolic components have concerned a lot of people and have been the emphasis of many post-marketing surveillance studies. Aspartame is metabolized by digestive enzymes and peptides to three common dietary components: amino acids, aspartic acid, and phenylalanine. Minute amounts of methanol can also be detected.
1 year Your excess risk of coronary heart disease has dropped to less than half that of a smoker. 5 to 15 years Your risk of stroke has declined to that of a non-smoker. 10 years Your risk of death from lung cancer has declined by almost half if you were an average smoker (one pack per day). Your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat and esophagus has now decreased. 15 years Your risk of coronary heart disease is now that of a person who has never smoked.
I also have a great grandmother with Parkinsons Disease, although, I don't think I have any of those symptoms other than the head tremor which I'm told is usually the last symptom to appear. I realize you can't diagnose without examining me and I realize I have many crazy things going on, but I would love to get your opinion on what this could be. Sorry this is so long. Thank you in advance.
I have been on that for two months and the frequency has increased to 2-3 a week with the stroke symptoms increasing in severity - loss of speech, noted weakness in the left side, vision problems in the left eye. No MRI has been done since the neurologist felt it unlikely that it would reveal anything. He says they are complicated migraines, which explains the stroke-like symptoms and we simply need to find the right medication to decrease their frequency.
Let me know, one way or the other! Your symptoms are NOT odd at ALL, and not very depression related. I've heard of all of these frequently from people (I know in person) and in literature on CFS and I've had some of them. I used to grocery shop by going to the car half way through and taking a nap just so my muscle could continue to the end. And boy was I glad for all those unpacked boxes in the aisles that I sat on.
He suspected that I had a mild stroke due to a blood clot which formed because of the birth control pills I was on. I went off the pills and he said the numbness would fade and call him if the frequency of the migraines increased. They increased to 1-2 a week and he put me on Limbitrol.
There definatly seems to be a connection especially with autoimmune disease. For instance family history of Thyriod disease increases the risk of MS..etc.... Mom- Dystolic dysfuntion (heart disease), Porphyria on her side of family.
Also, when I realized I was not as hard I should be, I started to stroke my covered shaft until it got hard and finally climaxed. My doubt is whether some of her fluids that were on my groin area managed to enter inside the condom from the base of the condom while I was stroking. I didn't have any sores and cuts but still, I started to have itching sensation all over my groin area from next day onwards. I was freaking out..
• Motor (eg, muscle cramping secondary to spasticity) spinal cord symptoms • autonomic (eg, bladder, bowel, sexual dysfunction) spinal cord symptoms • Cerebellar symptoms (eg, Charcot triad of dysarthria, ataxia, tremor) may occur. • fatigue (which occurs in 70% of cases) • Dizziness • Subjective difficulties with attention span, concentration, memory, and judgment may be noted any time during the disease course.
According to the American Heart Association, stroke presents with sudden numbness or paralysis of half of the body, sudden headache, sudden confusion, or slurred speech. This can be diagnosed with imaging modalities such as Ct scan or MRI. A stroke occurs when blood supply to part of the brain is disrupted, causing brain cells to die. Risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking.
I asked if the lesions could be strokes and he said no. I do have a family history of strokes. Could stroke lesions be confused with MS lesions on an MRI? Other then the 4 lesions on my brain and a couple of head pains and popping mentioned earlier I am pretty much symptom free.
But from my limited grasp of the question, I think that when you get a migraine that comes on suddenly and it is very painful, that's when you are more likely to suspect another stroke. And of course if you get any of the other typical stroke symptoms then you are facing another stroke. You can look those up if you don't already know them. I would be sure that your family or anyone you live with know all those symptoms.
