Avatar n tn My grandfather had an ischemic stroke last Friday. The doctors weren't able to use blood thinners because he was outside of the three-hour window. They sent him home and said rehabilitation wasn't possible because of his age (88) and the severity of the diasability (he doesn't recognize family members, has no control of his bladder, and doesn't know the function of household objects such as the telephone). My question is about what's next.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm a 21 yr old female who had a iscemic stroke 3 months ago caused by my pill. I'm almost back to normal now living my life which I was before the stroke. I'm on clopidagrel to thin my blood which I need to be on forever. I want to hear from anyone in the same age bracket - to talk to.
Avatar n tn My father suffered a stroke 9-18-07, along with a heart-attack, pneumonia, and blood infection. He was in the critical care unit on a ventilator for 3 weeks, and in the step down unit for 1 week. Upon removing the vent he was able to talk with everyone and remembers everything except the day of the stroke. He is now in a local rehab unit, but is unable to move his left side.
Avatar m tn Ovary removal causes accelerated aging increasing risk for heart disease (#1 killer of women), stroke, osteoporosis, dementia, impaired memory and cognition, parkinsonism, lung cancer, sleep disorders, mood disorders (depression, anxiety, mood swings), aging of eyes and skin, more severe hot flushes, sexual dysfunction. If the cysts are benign (per biopsy not visualization), there is no reason for removing your ovaries.
Avatar n tn My sister-in-law had a hemorrhagic stroke with a intracerebral hemorrhage. This was on May 18th. They have done a Ventriculostomy. The gas man found her in the driveway. We figure it had been somewhere between 20-35 mins. before she was found. They have her in a medically induced coma where they say she will stay for the next 3-4 weeks. Is this normal? Also, they did a cat scan on the 18th, and 19th and we were told the bleeding had stopped.
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 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 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 I have been taking tamoxifen for the last year and am aware that I am at an increased risk for having a stroke caused by blood clots. I wasn't too concerned about this side effect until my migraines became much more frequent, four in the last year, and three in the last four months. Also worrisome is that the aura has started when I have been in the middle of a run, which I do daily, and this is new.
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 I was diagnosed with NH Lymphoma in May of 2012 after many hospital emergency room visits and stays in the hospital. By some stroke of luck I met a doctor during this time who went from bed to bed talking with patients and he mentioned to me about this new drug that was coming out next year for Hepatitis C and told me to inform anyone I knew to hold off getting treatment until these new drugs get approved in early 2014.
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 My mother died of a stroke at the age of 71 and my father died of a heart attack aged 74. You have suggested that I have a CT scan of the chest, is that something I can ask my doctor to arrange. I live in the UK.
Avatar m tn And another episode of palpitation started. My heart was beating too fast and the pulse stroke was becoming feeble to feebler then stopped and again continued to beat. This was happening in a circular manner. During this episode my doctor suggested me to take Clonazepham 0.5mg and for some reason it helps to subsidize the condition. 10. Doctor also prescribed be beta-blocker but due to cold extremities he advised me to stop. Three: 10.
Avatar f tn I don't have any family history of heart disease that I know of my mom is 56 and had a stroke about a month ago, but she has high blood pressure and diabetes. My father has high cholesterol, but is 61 and has never had any heart problems. The doctors say that it is in my head and is caused by anxiety, but is there some other test that I should be asking for?
Avatar n tn 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. She's supposed to be released after one hour of recovery; is this normal, particularly for her age and in her state of health?
Avatar n tn Leina lives in El Paso, Tx, and I live in San Francisco, CA. Leina (47yrs) suffered a Hemorrhagic Stroke (left side) on Feb. 13, 2008, which has caused paralysis on her right side. After cranial surgery from the Hemorrhage, and an Aneurysm Coiling, Leina is now in an Adult Foster Home. She had no insurance when the stroke happened, so it's taken the family many weeks to go through MILES of SSI, Medicaid, Welfare, etc. paperwork/applications.
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 f tn (sorry, i'm going to veer away from the topic for a brief moment) i had an issue with a different, highly-addictive substance in the past, abusing it heavily in private, and i worry about one bit of damage it has left to one part of my body every day. but it could have caused stroke, heart failure or near death like it did with one of my good friends, and i somehow (against the odds and statistics) made it through, by stopping altogether, without rehabilitation or counseling.
424634 tn?1277861128 Is it possible for a TIA event to be caused by cardiovascular/heart disease?
469720 tn?1388149949 This according to a study by the American Heart Association's 2000 Heart and Stroke Statistical Update. Cardiovascular disease is still the No.1 cause of death for both men and women. Nearly 60 million Americans have some form of heart or blood vessel disease. From recent statistics, cardiovascular disease accounted for about 41 percent of all deaths, or one out of every 2.4 deaths.
Avatar n tn I am always paranoid that my heart is beating too fast and I tend to monitor my heart beat on my arm. I didn't know so many people had the same problem as I have. Anyways, I had ekg done test came back normal. Had CBC and other blood work done, all normal. I have learned to control panic attacks (I don't get them anymore), but anxiety I just can't get rid of. I get the palpitations when I am laying down or sitting. Never when I am up and walking, or running.
Avatar n tn About 2 years ago i had an TIA/mini stroke. The cause of this was never found but at the time i had high blood pressure, smoked alot, diabetes, and possibley high clorestorel if i remmber correctly. Also before i had the mini stroke in my car there were also two previous episodes before that where i was walking and felt like i was falling to one side and it was difficult to speak, i am wondering if those two episodes were also mini strokes? but now this is why i am worried.....

Avatar f tn That went away after 2 weeks and I started exercising again 2 weeks ago - I sweated alot and lost control of my breathing in a hot yoga class (40 degrees) and had what felt like a seizure- my hand went numb and clammed up - I felt sick and dizzy and I was breathing very fast. Since then my heart has been beating irregularly (sometimes palpatating so fast that I have been unable to sleep all night), my chest feels tight and hurts sometimes, I feel exhausted, extrememely dizzy and sometimes sick.
Avatar n tn I'm a sixtish male with a history of mitral prolapse/systolic functional murmur, PVCs and PACs. I take very low dose Atenolol. I was told that I have mild acid reflux, but decided to restrict diet rather than take a prescription for that. I often get what I call "lurches" that seem to be centered in the area of my diaphraghm. These lurches (spasms?) seem to correspond to the old phrase "my heart leaped into my throat.
182884 tn?1259316506 Now most likely you will need an echocardiogram to assess your heart function and the impact of the damage on your heart, and a left heart catheterization with possible stenting of any severe lesions. Hopefully the myocardium is stunned and alive and can recover from this event.
