stroke

Avatar m tn last year (MAY 2011) my then 7 year old son had numbess in his extremeties one leg/both same as the arms.. then his event in June, unable to walk talk. started out with headache and "lungs felt heavy" 2 hours later he couldn't walk or talk (saying ca ca ca) his right foot was also up and turned in a little after I found him like that 15 minutes later he was able to talk and said his right side was numb..
Avatar n tn The doc at ICU said he should be awake, they took him for a scan to see if he had a stroke but there was no sign of a stroke. When they put the medicine that keeps him asleep down, he moves his leg, arms, mouth and opens his eye lids without moving his pupils and doesn't respond to anything i say. the nurse tried shaking him and speaking very loudly but there was no reaction besides opening his eye lids. What is the problem? What can we do besides wait and approx.
Avatar m tn l nor talk trying to do both but only saying ca ca ca. about 10 minutes later he said his right side was numb. mom put hin to bed and then 2 days later said OMG I think he had a stroke. she called the doctors and they reassured her it was anxiety.
Avatar n tn It may be a medication which slows your heart rate down and so makes your heart beat seem more perceptible because each heart beat then has to contribute a larger stroke volume. I would make sure that you get an EKG and if there are no notable arrhythmias such as PVCs or SVT, as these are other possibilities for your symptoms. If you continue to have these symptoms then you also may need a Holter monitor.
Avatar n tn After a severe herart attack I was submitted to an open heart operation a three pont.. .which was successful in itself but it appears that the heart during the stroke was subject of big deterioration later it appeared that the capacity global of my heart is of 15 per cent.Tthe medical staff treating me have put me on a list for transplant.

Avatar n tn My dear friend, almost 90, is having her gall bladder removed. She's experiencing atrial fibrillation (for months), had a cardio-conversion 12/22, which only lasted 2 weeks. She's scheduled for another one but now the gall bladder issue is more pressing. What increased risks might she have during the surgery, with her heart condition? She's terribly weak (from weeks of not being able to eat) and nauseous.
Avatar f tn You should ask him why you need surgery? Have you had a TIA or stroke. Is you heart showing signs of RB dilatation and failure? Ask him WHY he wants you to undergo surgery.
Avatar n tn Not doing so could cause long term problems and increase the risk of a heart attack, death or stroke.
Avatar n tn There is a membrane that separates the two atria in the adult heart called the interatrial septum. If this moves more than 15 mm then is is described as a mobile IAS, and it is an important but not well studied risk factor for stroke. A PFO is a remnant of a fetal communication between the two atrial, and usually shifts blood from the left to the right atrial. If this flow has reversed then there is probably some pulmonary hypertension.
Avatar n tn I had an episode two weeks ago while sleeping my heart rate jumped up to about 200 or so. I went to the hospital they tried to stabalize it by jolting my heart twice. It was at no a vail. then they gave me medicine through the IV something starting with a A this began to slow m heart down. now they have me on Tikosyn which is keeping it stable until I have a n ablatiion. they told me this needs to be done to keep this from happeneing a gain.
Avatar n tn well it helped a bit but if i did all the exam such as blood work and the egk should i worry about having a stroke or heart attack. i'm 24 years old and they told me at my personal clinic that it could be anxiety!
Avatar m tn But if there are no contraindications in most patients with structural heart disease, or with a history of a stroke then warfarin is more effective in reducing strokes in patients with AF than plavix. But it involves folloiwng blood thinning levels at least per month, and dietary restrictions which can cause wild fluctuations in the therapeutic level and consequent bleeding episodes.
Avatar m tn It may have not been there before, and you need coumadin to prevent it from embolizing and causing you sudden cardiac death, stroke or a heart attack.
Avatar n tn I would continue to exercise aerobically, but avoid extreme sports such as Ironamns, marathons and the like as these are too extreme to be considered heart healthy, and have been shown to cause heart damage. In other words work out aerobically but not to excess, where dehydration and increased cathecholamine levels can cause worsening pulmonary hypertension and cardiac damage.
Avatar f tn Hi, My 77 year old Mom had a diabetic stroke 12 years ago and is left side paralysed. While on vacation in CA she had a heart attack, mild but required hospitalization. Had to have a heart cath. After that she had a quadruple bypass and two valve replacements. In ICU she was on ventilator then off, crashed day two back on, off again crashed back on then after 7 days in ICU and a feeeding tube inserted she was taken to heart floor for care.
Avatar n tn I had a stroke 6 months ago and am currently being treated to prevent conjestive heart failure, but the problem is I have had low blood pressure for many years and I am being given Licinopril to prevent CHF but it lowers my blood pressure even more, causing a great deal of even more increased debilitation, dizziness, lethargy and pain. Is there a heart medication out there that does not decrease blood pressure that I can ask my doctor to prescribe? Thank you for any assitance.
Avatar n tn Yes plavix is not sufficient for most patients to prevent stroke with atrial fibrillation, and you should also be on coumadin in addition to the plavix.
563659 tn?1310517917 well after four days total in and out of hospitals for my numb/ weak left side they have said i have bells palsy straight down my left side my left arm is weak my leg wobbles and half my face is still kinda parylised it ***** and i look like eith rocky or jean crietien i cant wait till it wears off
2175879 tn?1338355028 My MRI results came in. This time my neurologist actually found proof that I had a stroke. First they thought it was a TIA, then an ear ache, and then I kinda forced the issue, they did another MRI and actually found a small "disruption" on my right side of my brain. I can't tell you how relieved that makes me.
Avatar n tn I exercise 4 times a week and am in good health, with no family history of heart problems, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol. I am currently going through tests to figure out why this is happening. Anyone have any ideas or similar experiences?
Avatar n tn I was admited to hospital 3days ago with atrial fibrillation my heart was 170 bpm, I was blacking out shaking vigoriously I was not in pain but had what apeard to me to be heartburn wich I have been suffering with latley. I had an urgent need for the toiled wich I could not hold back even though I was dissy and blacking out I just had to go It lasted at the same intensity for about 3hours when I was given medication to slow my heart. It slowed down after a futher hour.
Avatar f tn You may have a condition called broken heart syndrome or Takasubu's heart disease, which is a sudden decrease in heart function in the absence of significant coronary disease and presence of a severe stressor. If you in fact have this condition, the prognosis for recovery is reported as good, that is better than the ischemic and other forms of non ischemic cardiomyopathy.
Avatar n tn Have seen GP, Cardiologist and Neurologist in past 3-4 months. Diagnosis of possible stroke 2 years ago (sudden onset numbness left arm and hand and grasping function). Positive Babinski left foot. All labs are normal, other than +1 ketones in urine. Heart normal. Echo and CA++ Scan show 0% chance of cardiac event. MRI of head/neck shows 70% occlusion right internal carotid. SPEC scan normal. CT angiography show stenosis. So, here's the question.
Avatar f tn s and silent stroke. I also have a family history of heart failure and attack. I recently had a bubble echo to check out my TIA's I noticed some changes on my echo that were not there 6 years ago when I last had a echo doe. THe changes are the following: left ventricular hypertrophy,right ventricle dilated, left and right artrium dilated, mitral valve reuritation, triscuspid regurgitation, IVC dilated and central venous pressure is elevated.
