Cva stroke signs and symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Cva stroke signs and symptoms


Avatar f tn He has not experienced any facial expression changes and has no obvious signs of CVA/TIA except the numbness. He has mild weakness in the right leg but not to the extent of any changes to his gait. I will check into any family history or possibility of diabetes and do some digging to see what I can find out. Thanks for your help and reassurance.
Avatar m tn I am hopeful that there will be something that can ease your symptoms. I wish you the very best and hope you will keep in touch with us.
Avatar f tn Make sure you and everyone that is around your dad know the signs of a stroke because acting quickly when a person has a stroke can save his life! Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn More than be concerned you need to get her to an emergency room immediately for this type of blood pressure ...she is at a high risk of having a CVA or stroke and that is not a good thing at all....that is a very dangerous blood pressure and it needs to be monitored....i would take her to the E,R, immediately if you are still getting those readings. Do not take chances with her life it is like playing Russian Roulette with a blood pressure that high.............good luck to you both......
Avatar m tn I am worried because I just googled this and found TIA. My mother had a stroke 3 years ago. I am a smoker and a drinker but am not overweight. Any advice I am so worried.
620081 tn?1221442530 too little blood or ischemic stroke and too much blood or hemorrhagic stroke. Complications of stroke include: pralysis or loss of muscle movement, dfficulty talking or swallowing; aphasia, a condition in which a person has difficulty expressing thoughts through language, memory loss or troubles with understanding. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn And I might be inclined to believe them except for two things. The MRI report does not mention clots and I am continually developing new symptoms. My initial residuals include all the usual; muscle weakness (73% deficiency) and spasticty on the left side, facial droop, foot drop, restless leg syndrome, vertigo, trouble speaking in full sentences, short term memory loss, trouble swallowing. I went back to work three weeks after my stroke and had made a near full recovery in the first 12 months.
Avatar n tn Does remaining in a sitting position in this event delay his return to consciousness, and more importantly - does it put him at risk for a stroke due to the reduced blood flow to the brain during the syncopal event?
Avatar n tn With not wanting to scare you many of the symptoms that you have posted are in line with someone who may be experiencing the symptoms of a stroke or CVA and the high blood pressure could be setting off this chain reaction.
Avatar f tn Disease and Condition Overview Stroke, or CVA ( cerebrovascular accident ), is characterized by a sudden loss of consciousness and is often accompanied by partial facial paralysis, slurred speech, and hemiplegia. Due to the sudden onset of the disease, Its muhiple symptoms, and the rapid change in condition, stroke is considered similar to properties of wind. Clinically, it is important to differentiate between the ischemic and hemorrhagic types of stroke.
Avatar m tn This happened about a week ago, as well as several months ago. My father recently suffered a stroke in july on one side of his brain and an older one on the other side. Obviously this type of thing has recently raised a concern for me. My mother also had an issue with a nitro valve. How often should I push to get seen to get an echo?

Avatar f tn I am 53 years old, and had a very mild stroke (CVA) 8-30-07. After lots of tests, the neurologist found I had a hole in my heart. I then had the PFO closure procedure done 12-5-07. I thought this would limit my chances for future strokes, plus got me off the coumadin I was taking. However, about 2 weeks after the PFO closure, I had to run a short distance and I noticed my heart beating irregularly. I laid down and it went away in about 3 hours.
Avatar f tn It results because the usual tests only view the lumen (inner channel) but it does not show the soft and hard plaque between the inner wall and the outer smooth muscle. Most heart attacks happen when this soft plaque rutures the inner lining and develops clots. It is not a very good answer to your question, but there can be occlusions without angina, and an occluded vessels is not usually the agent to cause a stroke, heart attack.
338734 tn?1377160168 I am very worried about compromising my chances of SVR and I am not aware of anything that could link the interferon to stroke risk factors. I have normal BP and normal lipids. No damage or causes showed up on CT scan or MRI of brain, but bubble echo cardiogram showed possible shunt. I think this will be looked at closer with endoscopic US w/ bubbles next week. I hope you can answer two questions for me: 1.
Avatar f tn Next month I will be three years post subarachnoid hemorrhage and stroke. My entire left side was affected and I spent my first two months in ICU and inpatient rehab relearning how to walk, talk, write and everything else related to everyday living, like getting dressed. Although I am far better than I was three years ago, I'm still recovering; I want to be as close to my pre-stroke self as I can be, if not better.
Avatar n tn Had a pregnancy stroke (due to toxemia/hypertension) and seizure when I was 18. No effects from either. It is now 17 years later and I had some dizziness so I had an MRI done in March 2008. The findings from the MRI at age 18 (1992): lateral ventricles are slightly large for someone at this age 2 to 2.5 cm wedge shaped area of low density involving the right superolateral frontal cortex consistent with an infarct there.
1523516 tn?1330044257 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.
Avatar f tn i am a diabetic butmy CBG at the time was 140 . i had TB over two years ago but was cured. i had a CVA bleed stroke over a year ago. i feel that it is not a relapse of TB. i suspect it is caused by the elevated blood pressure?
Avatar f tn She said that the day she had a stroke, she was admitted in the ICU and had a CVD bleed. What does that mean? Thanks you. And i was also wondering if what type of stroke she had because i don't have her records. She said she spent 2 days in the ICU, 1 month at the hospita, has left side paralysis and no peripheral vision on the left eye. Now she still has no peripheral vision on the left eye and still has weakness on the left side of her body. Thank you for your help.
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..
