2175879 tn?1338355028 t tell you how relieved that makes me. Some people never get confirmation that they actually suffered a stroke and then they feel bad about it, employers don't believe them and it's generaly hard, and couple that with a real stroke, it's almost unberable.
Avatar f tn If this person is older they could have had a grandma seizure which represents signs of a stroke I would also ask the doctor to take a full urine check and make sure that the electrolytes are at a sustainable level. Magnesium (low) can be very hard on the body and is vital to ones health so definitely ask the doctor as to whether the renal function of the patient is at a good level. Please ask if you have any further questions.
Avatar m tn How can the doctor help me to maintain my health and treat my body unless the doctor actually sees and examines my body? There's a lot of chatter these days about medical modesty, and I think it's just overblown. Are we not adults? When I go for an exam I want to be thoroughly checked. I want the doctor to have a good estimation of not just the particulars but my overall health. This means that the doctor needs to be well acquainted with my body.
Avatar f tn I actually found that a low dose of BB can give my running a boost, particularly if I have been experiencing symptoms whilst running. With the bad heart beats gone, I can feel better and run better. I will say though that the BB can also work the opposite direction if I take more than I need.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with a heart murmur when I was young, and I am wondering about the cheek-biting habit and incidence of Eikenella. My dental health is so-so (I don't visit the dentist as regularly as I should). I have a lot of tightness in the chest (even before my mom's stroke), but I always chalk it up to stress, which I don't handle very well. Now the hypochondriac in me is coming out. Thank you very much for your time.
Avatar m tn If this trend continues, you are indeed at high risk for developing cardiovascular disease such as heart attach or stroke. I recommend starting a diet and exercise program immediately, which may even help with improving your mood. In my opinion you do NOT need a stress echo since it is unlikely that you would have significant blockages in your arteries AT THIS TIME, unless you have some discomfort or pain when you exert yourself.

To combat this major public health issue, Vascular Medical specialist recommend greater screening efforts by the medical community through the use of the ankle brachial index (ABI) test.

Avatar f tn t take anything but vitamins and 1 aspirin daily. Had ekg and stress test and did fine. Felt fine when I left and by the time I got back to work my insides are churning again. My last physical was 6 months ago and all results came out fine.
1344197 tn?1392819171 Hysterectomy for benign, non cancerous, indications is one of the commonest surgical procedures in women, but the association between the procedure and the increase risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), heart attack and stroke is not fully understood. Hysterectomy has traditionally been considered the method of choice for treating a variety of benign, non-cancerous, gynecological disorders due to the low surgical complication rate and definite cure of these diseases.
Avatar f tn I would keep eating the way you are and take magnesium in the morning and calcium at night, and also check into L-arginine; your sister may be helpful for researching the worth of these supplements. coq10 may be good too. my mom had a heart attack and was put on that drug but she had a GI bleed, so the gastroenterologist took her off of it. Then she saw a general surgeon about a hernia, and he was thrilled she was off it. He said he thought they put too many people on that long-term.
Avatar n tn hi, my name is kathy, and on wed of last week, i was in front of the washer ready to do the wash and I got cheest pains like tons of bricks were sitting on my chest then my jaws started to hurt and i had a lump( it felt like) throat and my lips started to go numb. and after a few mins it went away, in the past I get this feeling of all the blood in my body is rushing from my feet to my head and it seems like my ears are closing off.
469720 tn?1388146349 And poor diet is not limited to these individuals, it is possible to have excess intake of fatty foods and simple carbohydrates, both dietary hazzards, and still appear outwardly slim and fit. One out of two individuals that present emergently with cardiac cause of chest pain have had no previous diagnosis. It is our inability to identify these people earlier which prevents us from implementing aggressive measures to prevent disease from getting to that severe state.
Avatar m tn There is now no question that your oral health can affect your overall health, including your heart health. Regular check-ups by your dentist should therefore become a priority for you and your family. (see http://www.calgarydentist.ca).
Avatar n tn Before beginning any exercise program, check with your doctor. If you have high blood pressure exercise is one way you can bring it down. Generally speaking, aerobic exercise, especially those old "cardio" ones will bring down the blood pressure best. Walking, slow jogging, biking, swimming, etc. are the best exercises for cardio. Lifting weights can put pressure on the "system" because you often hold your breath when doing a lift, or your head is down.
Avatar f tn My mom is 80 with high blood she just had a mild stroke on monday and is still in the hospital will this turn into a full blown stroke how long after the mild one could she have another I am 48 was just told I have high blood and started taking medication will this happen to me one day as well...
Avatar f tn Low electrolytes can cause muscle spasms, seizures, and heart muscle damage and mess up your heart rate. If you remember Ms Shivo, who recently made headlines by getting her life support unplugged, you may remember she got brain damage from just this sort of treatment. She dieted and took colon cleanse products for one week and ended up with a stroke and brain damage. It only took one week.
Cat After my last treatment I will start a 12 week program with a personal trainer and exercise program. Am looking forward to this program.
Avatar f tn I stay on a lowfat diet and have receently started the low tyramine diet recommended by the NHF to help with the frequency of my migraines. I don't smoke and don't have hypertension byt heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure all run in my family. I have had migraines for 25 years and lately have been extremely hard to control.

368646 tn?1208393887 It protects the heart, strengthens circulation, and helps to maintain the tone and health of the heart muscle. It is also useful in stopping bleeding and to promote healing after a heart attack or a stroke. Tumeric, onions, ginger, soy are all god stuff for your heart, brain and cholesterol. I think the most important herb to point out is Hawtorn since it suit your condition and might be extremely useful for you.
Avatar f tn In 2009 I had an arorta/femoral bypass. In previous years I have had stents put in both legs twice, caroid artery by-pass on left side. Two stents put in right side of heart also. I am 59 years old. I have never had a heart attack or major stroke. I have recently had an MRI that showed a 2.8cm anerysum and a CTscan with die. That showed my right kidney with 50 percent blockage from scar tissue and right leg blockage 50-60 percent almost entire length.
950760 tn?1316697651 The phase 4 program is once again being undertaken by yours truly following the Heart Attack in April, all appears to be going well. Recent changes in the meds appear to be helping, no longer getting the severe muscle cramps etc that I was having with Simvastatin.

Avatar n tn I never thought about what smoking could do to the lungs, I just thought about the stroke and heart disease. If any of you readers still smoke or know someone you love that smokes, please, keep after them to quit and quit yourself. It is a dangerous bad habit not a cool one. I live in a state where smoking is a big habit and it probably will not be banned any too soon.So STOP RIGHT NOW, it is never too late.
