233915 tn?1218816727 Your daughter may have migraines, but the fact that she has had one stroke would make me worry about why that happened and why she is having neurological symptoms. Basically, your doctor may end up being right, but I think you may want to get second and third opinions first. At the very least your daughter should be tested for a PFO (paten foramen ovale) which is a small hole in the heart that causes many pediatric strokes and be tested for blood clotting disorders.
Avatar n tn We went out for my birthday on the Saturday and on the Sunday morning I was in hospital, no warning signs as I was asleep and woke up with a major headache, went to the hospital and after 2 days in emergency they finally told me I had a stroke.... A bit too late to take any medication then. They put it down to my pill because they couldn't find any other explanation. I was on the Levlen ED pill. I lost my whole right side of my body and 3 months later its all pretty much back to normal.
Avatar n tn Hi, Stroke rehabilitation, or, in more optimistic terms, stroke recovery, is the process by which patients with disabling strokes undergo treatment to help them return to normal life as much as possible by regaining and relearning the skills of everyday living. It is multidisciplinary in that it involves a team with different skills working together to help the patient.

Avatar n tn that have varying symptoms from the above list. Those symptoms used to last 10 minutes and go away. Then they started lasting for an hour. Then for 3 hours and continued to build until they now last for days (2 or 3 weeks). All will go away except the tinnitus, which is 24/7, for awhile, but I live in fear of when the symptoms will return. I have tried everything offered. I have tried journaling to see if anything is consistent.
Avatar n tn No tPA was administrered of which I now learn possibly could have lessened the effects of my CVA/stroke. I've since had another stroke on 9/20 and can tell you my Neurologist hasn't done didly squat to prevent another one. My opinion is IF you want to "prevent a stroke", go see a well experienced Cardiologist for a complete cardio workup, one who also specializes in vascular diseases is a plus.
1523516 tn?1330047857 TIAs and stroke may not show up on a standard MRI. Cranial bleeds will show up. I have a friend in a California hospital right now with a normal MRI and what look like massive damage to the left and right cerebrum as a result of sleep apnea. He seems to have caused massive brain damage by depriving his brain of oxygen in his sleep. His MRI is normal. It really depends on how damage occurs. Hypoxia can kill the brain and leave very little for an MRI to detect.

Major symptoms (paralysis/vibration) are relieved and often prevented by wearing flight socks and compression bandages, lying flat, or at least sitting with legs up, progesterone cream helps, and so does to OCP, I finally figured out that progesterone is a neuro-steroid today used to treat brain injuries.
Avatar m tn Why is your mother bedridden? What happens to her if she tries to be up and about? What symptoms does she have? Also please mention if she is on any medication and what her medical and surgical history is like..

Avatar m tn A TIA is caused by a clot; the only difference between a CVA (stroke) and TIA is that with TIA the blockage is transient. TIA SX usually occur rapidly and last a relatively short time. Your SX seem to last longer. I have heard of these episodes tiring ppl. My Aunt recently had one and did not feel "right" for the remainder of the day. She was tired and a bit discombobulated. Another thought is could your episodes be a form of a seizure.
Avatar m tn I am a 44yr old male living in Pacific NW. Had a right side CVA in 1987. Symptoms I had been experiencing sporadicaly for years have now all come together and are much more acute. These symptons include Ballistic movement; uncoordinated movement; foggy head; slurred speach; tremors and fatigue. New symptons that have appeared are neurogenic bladder (which I will be self catting) blurred vision; inability to bear down for BM and ED.
Avatar f tn I had her direct admitted instead of sitting 14 hours in the ER and was yelled out because A CT should signs of vascular changes and an old stroke. This was the first time I had heard of this. We were always told NO STROKE PRESENT. The hospitalists came in and assessed her. She had significant left sided weakness and noted that the pulses were assymetrical and ordered BP's in both sides. The left side is much lower/weaker than the right.
Avatar m tn He had another sister who also had a CVA and died in her early 60's of CHF, and his brother had a CVA and died of CHF at the age of 62. My aunt (father's sister) family have been tested (ECHO) three of the six children have HCM. I have another cousin who died (not of HCM) during autopsy they noted left ventricular hypertrophy. With this strong of a family history I don't want my doctors brushing this off, and I feel this is exactally what they are doing.
Avatar f tn The critcal stage is 180 systolic and 100 diastolic and greater. This stage can cause a stroke, kidney damage, etc. He should have immediate treatment to lower the blood pressure to a level that is not a very serious condition. Thanks for your question, and if you have any further questions or comments you welcome to respond. Take care. and I wish your father well going forward. Take care.
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?
Avatar n tn I hope this question doesn't saound too dumb but is it possible for some one to show signs of using ( nodding, pinned eyes and slured speach) from Imotil and low dose of zanax? He has been like that since new years day and I am flipping out because I was so happy that we both made it trough the holiday. He had a bad case of diarreah which made him take the imotil, and his Dr, prescribed Zanax for sleep and anxiety.
