Avatar n tn Doctor said it was a stroke and heart attack. However immediately after the stroke she started to complain about pain in left arm. When we looked at the arm, 80% of the arm was purple- black color. However it starts to lose the color now and it is more pink. Anyway she is under medication and she sleeps all the time. We feed her and she used to eat pretty well. However starting with yesterday she can't really swallow. Also she has Alzheimer. Any suggestions?
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 n tn s result in embolic stroke (a clot going from the heart to the brain), and these are typically located in the periphery of the brain, while MS lesions are typically deep. If there is any confusion, then the diagnosis of MS can be established by performing a spinal fluid analysis. A PFO causes stroke by allowing a clot to pass from the body into the outgoing cirulation (i.e. to the brain) without being filtered in the lung.
Avatar n tn Does that prevent the stroke from occurring by reducing the heart pumping? Can you slide into a heart attack from that? If you are worried both about stroke and heart attack is aspirin still a good first step? Also, I am not a migraine sufferer, but I work with someone who is-are they inherently more prone to stroke?
Avatar f tn My mother can speak (whisper) and can answer simple questions (adding 1 plus 1, the name of her husband, her brother, her grandchildren), but rambles and says nonsensical things over and over again. She cannot move her arms and one leg she can only move slightly (although it is improving). She is often not alert, but she has had two heart procedures in 5 days so I'm hoping she will become more alert. We still don't know whether she will be able to swallow.
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle.

306209 tn?1192818127 in his heart and they will have to do surgery to fix it... what came first??? the heart problem or the stroke??? did the heart problem cause the stroke because there wasn't enough oxygen to the right side of his brain because of a possible "clot" from his heart?... or was there not enough blood pressure thru that area of his brain because of the heart problem?...

Avatar n tn My dad had a clot stroke after heart by-pass surgery. The doctors put him on blood thinner. He also had a clot in his lung. 3 days post stroke, a CT scan revealed he had a "bleed" at the stroke site. So, he has been taken off of blood thinner and they are recommending a blood filter in his pelvis to keep any clots from going to his heart, lungs, etc. Anyone have any experience with this procedure? Did it help or prevent another stroke or cause any harm?
Avatar n tn This question comes up every once in a while among other people I know with APLS. Has there ever been any research into IgG values and their relationship to INR or stroke occurance? I know in my case, my IgG levels will swing from a low of @ 100 to a high of 792. It was at 792 that I had a stroke and heart attack. Is there any "chart" or something which shows a likelyhood of clots to IgG ?
Avatar n tn I'm 33 years old and had an ischemic stroke in Dec 04 (an arterial occlusion). I have had an MRI/MRA/MRV, blood tests, lumbar puncture, TTE & a 2nd TTE/TEE. All were normal. I have a few questions about my TTE. InitialIy, I had a TTE with a bubble test, & although the test results were normal, I did have bubbles return to my heart from my lungs after 4 heartbeats.
Avatar n tn s have all agreed that my Heart Disease and Stroke is based on my family history...(father and all of his 7 sibilings had heart attack's before the age of 30, all have had mulitiple heart attacks over the years)....I am on a "Host" of medications including Coumadin, which restricts my consumption of green leafy vegetables, so I have "beefed" up eating beans, raisins, and other foods high in iron...as much as I can...
Avatar n tn Hello, My mother had open heart surgery and a stroke, my Q is ... it took her a week to wake up from the surgery and after a month is still in hosp., she responds at times and sometimes sleeps for a whole day. Is this a normal stroke, she has spasticity on one side.Everything I have read claims she should be responding more than this. She still has a trache with oxygen.The doctors say everyone is different and are not giving us much information.
1321031 tn?1274425152 Felt better overall, but still have that dreaded feeling that a stroke or heart attack is just on the verge of happening.
484160 tn?1343397921 The stroke occurred in pons area of the brain (part of the brain stem) which controls involuntary muscles like heart and lungs, also stability and speech and bowel and bladder, among other things. Probably the worst place you can have a stroke. The doctor said he was lucky to even be breathing much less driving himself to the hospital (smoking the whole way).
Avatar n tn Numbness in your lip, cheek, arm, leg favoring one side are possible and serious signs of a pending TIA/stroke. TIA is the same thing as a stroke only difference is it doesn't leave permanent damage like a CVA/stroke. That numbness is your body telling you there is a blockage somewhere. My recommendation if your having numbness to your face and side to see your doctor immediately, if possible see a Cardiologist as there are many heart ailments that can lead to stroke.
