Avatar n tn I never understood why they put him on it but they said that his heart went into afib at some times and the coumadin was to prevent a stroke. Well he had a stroke anyway.

Avatar f tn The unstated objective of the 5-year “CFS” strategic research plan is to continue to study CFS as a stress-related disorder by following the false UK psychiatric model, which produced the dangerously flawed NICE Guidelines for CFS/ME - for vaguely defined “chronic fatigue” patients -and the funding of chronic fatigue clinics which are detrimental to M.E.patients and deprive them of the medical care that they would receive if M.E.was a recognised neurological disease.
Avatar n tn I am a 30 year old female who had a stroke when I was 28. After the stroke the docs sent me to a cardiologist to check my heart and found that I had a PFO. They also found that I have a blood disorder that makes my blood clot very fast. They put me on Plavix, asprin, and Arixtra. They closed the PFO, but I still had and have alot of chest pains. I have a heart murmur and 2 leaky valves (very small leakage). I have perioditis twice in 3 months. Things now have gone down hill.

Avatar n tn Nerve dysfunction in your case appears to be due to some kind of vascular compromise or compression injury at the spinal level. When I say vascular compromise, it can be thrombosis or ischemia or stroke like thing in cerebral vessels. When I say compression injury it could be at the level of cervical spine and also at lumbar level. You have associated fever now which suggests it could be due inflammatory descending paralysis. You need to wait for the report of MRI as what does it suggests.
181575 tn?1250202386 Current treatment of HIV infection is based on creating a high genetic barrier to resistance. ... Current guidelines for initial treatment of patients with HIV infection reflect that view by recommending a combination of 3 or more agents from different classes having different mechanisms of action. ... Although data are not available for all antiviral agents used to treat HBV infection, it is becoming clear that single-drug therapy may not provide a sufficiently high barrier to resistance.
Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?

436713 tn?1408888330 Though apparently this is within ICNIRP 'guidelines'. I'd like to see those so called scientists involved with the ICNIRP guidelines sit there and see how they feel after such exposure and time. Having been upstairs in my house working at my desk, I had to go to hospital because I had numbness, headache, pains, nausea and dizziness, I was later told by the doctors first is was a heart attack, then after scan that it was a stroke, then after another scan it was not.
429949 tn?1224695179 so to speak as it has been one year since I was prematurely discharged from acute rehab after suffering an attack of Acute Disemminated EncephaloMyelitis as a 29 year old female. Today is the last day of 2012, so what better way to end the year than to follow these conversations, now that I can actually verbalize "Acute Disemminated EncephaloMyelitis" and have been able to return to CSUS as the Deaf Studies Major I was preceding the brain trauma...?
Avatar f tn When I first started reading this I thought, "A stroke". But as I continued, I would say a Migraine. 15% of people who suffer from migraines have visual disturbances of some kind. Over the last eleven years, I've had a couple of different kinds of visual disturbances. You may want to try seeing if you are able to find a trigger, i.e. stress and find a neurologist that you like and trust.
Avatar n tn Side effects are rarely pleasant. Some drugs can cause seizures, stroke, bleeding, infection, depression, coma, death, yadda yadda.... If your pain is in any way interfering with the quality of your life, then you must take whatever drugs are necessary to relieve it. My doctors have so often left me hanging. They don't think narcotics are an acceptable treatment for chronic pain-only acute. Well, how would they like to experience the severity of an acute pain attack every day of thier lives?

Avatar m tn Supplemental vitamin D show no consistent effects on infection In studies on acute respiratory tract infection3, tuberculosis4 and overall infections5, the effects of vitamin D have been mixed (and largely unsuccessful) in terms of reducing infectious burden.

211940 tn?1267884866 I have the exact same pain in my right arm. I never had any problem until I was recovering from a stroke and emergency surgery. While in the hospital for two weeks afterward, I noticed a dull aching in my right arm, midway between the elbow and shoulder. The discomfort gradually worsened over the next month until I couldnt use my arm at all. An orthopedic surgeon told me I had torn my rotator cuff and needed surgery but, when he got in there, he found nothing.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Sepsis with acute renal failure. I was admitted to ICU for a day and then in the hospital for 7 days. I had a blood transfusion, 4 different IV antibiotics, potassium, etc. My right arm swelled up like a big balloon, red, hot to the touch and sore to the touch. They said I had cellulitis. I went home and was on 5 different medications plus Coumadin and shots in my abdominal area due to the blood clot and my INR number.
Avatar n tn I knew i was not the only one abusing these damn things, so nice to find some honest discussion on this problem. On and off i've been taking anything up to 100 tabs per day, 32 per day at the moment. I have a stomach ulcer and am in pain most of the time. Have lost count of how many times i've tried to come off. There is little more important than getting off these things. At the moment i'm going to try again to come off.
