Avatar n tn m glad to read that I am not the only one with Thyroid issues! I am the proud mother of a new baby girl who is now 4 months old and I suffer from PPT, I had it with my first child and now I new the signs I acted fast and saw my endo. The problem is that I've been prescribed Tapazole to help me with the hyper stage until hypo sets in, and honestly, I'm really scared to take the medication. The list of side effects seem pretty severe. Is this the best process for me to take.
Avatar n tn In April of 2007 I had bloodwork , suspecting Hyperthyroidism which runs in my family. I had no idea about PPT at the time. My thyroid levels were indicative of Hyperthyroidism. In June the Dr. then ordered the antibody tests and said they were inconclusive as to PPT and put me on propanalol for my excessive heart rate, palpitations and tremors.
Avatar n tn Depending on how an MRI scan is completed it can show both acute and chronic strokes. Radiologists comment on the fact that there is no acute stroke either to indicate that they did special imaging to look for an acute stroke, or because this is a common reason to obtain a MRI of the brain. Chronic strokes can be seen with standard MRI techniques, and therefore the comment normal MRI excludes the presence of chronic strokes.
Avatar n tn My endo diagnosed me with PPT, but I am now 19 months postpartum and I am just now heading towards hypo after over a year of being hyper. I am wondering if I was possibly misdiagnosed. There are also other things that make me think this. I lost 7 lbs during the last month of my pregnancy and my daughter was born at 28 weeks gestation after fighting off preterm labor for 2 weeks. Is there any way to tell if this is another thyroid disorder besides ppt? Does it really matter?
Avatar f tn This is the only MRI done since his initial stroke. The MRI showed old infarct in pons area + acute infarct in anterior portion of corpus callosum + subacute infarct in the other side of the corpus callosum. It also showed lesions in the thalamic portion + basil ganglia. The neurologist resident stated that my dad had a TIA (or stroke) 2 weeks prior to his stroke on February 19,09 (at home-it was never noticed).

Avatar n tn I am at the early stages of PPT (I also have postpartum anxiety) my endocrinologist put me on Tapazole 2 weeks ago. I have a mild soar throat but I believe it's merely the remnants of a cold. However, I am losing an insane amount of hair, above the average hair loss due to postpartum. Is this the combo of thyroid, meds and postpartum... I'm on tapazole 10mg daily dose. Is there something I can do? I had my blood work done on Friday and WBC was normal... does it fluctuate easily?

Avatar n tn My mother recently suffered an acute stroke after a mini-stroke two weeks earlier. While at the hospital the neurologist told our family that had they known she had atrial fibrillation in her first mini-stroke, they would have prescribed coumadin and the acute stroke would likely have been prevented. I was told by a geriatric nurse practitioner friend that they should have done the Holter EKG rather than the short EKG as it would have detected the atrial fibrillation.
Avatar f tn my mom is 72 3 weeks ago she came down with acute west nile and in the middle of that she had a stroke. A bleeder and it affected 25 % of her left side brain. she is having severe headaces. Can't move her right side, can't eat or drink. The drs. are going to start intense rehab. Is there a chance for recovery or are we just biding time. I want to give her every chance possible. I quess I may be in a state of shock just looking for answers.
Avatar m tn If my memory serves me right, acute ischemic event is just the medical jargon for a stroke. Congratulations, it looks like you are in the clear.
Avatar m tn You may have postpartum thyroiditis (PPT). PPT is considered a "temporary"/self-resolving thyroiditis. It usually starts with a hyper phase, followed by a return to normal and then a hypo phase. However, many women only experience the hypo or the hyper, not both. TSI (thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin) is the antibody marker for Graves'. If you have that tested, and it's elevated, you'll know you have Graves'.
Avatar n tn Rapid assessment of acute ischemia is critical for the management of acute stroke patiens who may benefit from thrombolytics or neuroprotective therapeutics. Differentiation of acute from chronic stroke, which may all appear hyperintense on T2- Weighted Imaging(T2WI ), is essential in determining the management of patiens.
Avatar n tn Acupuncture treatment, used in its aftermath and recovery period can also be used in the acute phase. In recent years a large number of shows, stroke acupuncture treatment time is very important, no matter what type of stroke should seek early treatment. In addition, some recent acupuncture workers started to attach importance to the cause of stroke and certain mental obstacles to the treatment of mental disorders.
Avatar f tn My 86 year old mother had a acute stroke in Dec 08. The Drs have said that it has just effected her balance. Just wanting to know more about it. She many other health issues, high blood pressure,diabeties, heart bypass surgery, ect. Any info would be helpful.
Avatar f tn I currently live at a high altitude... could this be the problem? Or Stroke? Maybe Guillain-Barre?
Avatar n tn PPT vil Nils nicht behandeln.
Avatar n tn That is a REALLY good idea for him to have very limited access to money right now (and for some time to come). I should have thought to mention that, as it has been significant for me. It's not just that money provides the means to purchase. It does do that, but money seems to be one of those things of "PEOPLE, PLACES and THINGS" ("PPT") that trigger the obsession/compulsion to use. I still do not feel comfortable carrying much cash.

Avatar n tn A patient who had suffered from a myocardial infarction would have an area of damaged heart muscle and so would have elevated cardiac troponin levels in the blood The following information would summarize the interesting facts for your clarity and better understanding. Acute MI immediately following t-PA treatment for stroke is a rare but serious complication.
Avatar n tn This seems like a very complex situation especially for her doctors, so it's difficult to answer some of these things given the limitations of this venue, but I'll try to give you some information that may answer your questions. It sounds like your sister has had an acute event with progression or a series of acute events in succession.
Avatar f tn I have a 7 month old son and my thyroid is way out of whack. Because of my somewhat recent pregnancy my endo seems to think that I have PPT. I have researched this and PPT goes from hyper to hypo and I thought if this was the case with my sons age I would be in the hypo stage by now....also I have no inflammation which I'm pretty sure would be required for a thyroidITIS diagnosis.
