Common Questions and Answers about Heart stroke recognition program

stroke

Avatar m tn My Dad has been diagnosed with having delirium after a stroke. He is continuously restless and agitated, he is always pulling at the bedclothes or taking off his own clothes. Is there any treatment for delirium and is it reversible?
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 My mom just suffered a 'massive' hemorragic stroke three days ago. The doctors are saying that her speech and speech recognition will be affected as well as her right side. She is still in a neuro ICU on a vent and feeding tube. She had to have emergency surgery two days ago to relieve swelling. They removed the clot but left the brain tissue. She is recovering better than expected from the surgery meaning that she is alive but she has yet to open her eyes or follow commands.
Avatar n tn My reading indicates that stroke in not a big concern in an otherwise healthy heart. I am on 7.5mg of coumatin. The above site refers to an Italian doctor with a sucessful ablation technique. I need to find the best guy in the Boston area or outside if necessary. I hear about Cleveland, Oklahoma, Utah, Italy!!!
Avatar f tn An explanation can be heart cell damage can occur without necrosis of heart cells. The heart cells can be in a low oxygen level due to ischemia and be viable although non functional causing hypokinesis (impaired wall movement). With heart attack aside, troponin levels may also be elevated with acute or chronic conditions such as myocarditis (heart inflammation), congestive heart failure, severe infections, kidney disease, etc.
Avatar n tn This reaction may include high blood pressure, change in heart rate, skin color changes (paleness, redness, blue-grey skin color), and excessive sweating. Causes The most common cause of autonomic hyperreflexia is spinal cord injury. In this condition, types of stimulation that are tolerated by healthy people create an excessive response from the person's nervous system.
Avatar dr m tn If you take a look at the research literature, there are tomes of studies that link sleep apnea (and even snoring alone) with a much higher incidence of stroke (as well as heart disease). One recent study looked a MRI’s of people with sleep apnea and found a significant increase in the number of small silent strokes (or lacunar infarcts). Another study showed that people with sleep apnea had significantly reduced blood flow rates to certain critical areas of the brain.
Avatar n tn And other than an injury, could this have been caused by something else? I don''t know, a stroke? Or brain thing? He's lost weight recently, and seems to have a skin condition as well. He's really a mess, but I love him anyway!
Avatar m tn So, even tho you are having heart arrthymias (with the bottom BP number over 100), apparently stroke or brain damage did not cause your facial recognition difficulties. But when you go in and see your neurologist, which they asked you to set up an appointment with him, plez do mention to him your various BP numbers. As for your question about whether the sleep meds your old doc gave you may have caused your BP changes, no, I don't think so, because you had possible heart trouble before that.
649848 tn?1534637300 High blood pressure, blood clots, stroke. Then he sought an opinion from an Auckland ethics panel. They dismissed the treatment as unnecessary. "There are well developed ways to manage severely disabled people in New Zealand and to assist family members," the panel wrote. "To consider alternatives raises the concern that these are less than ideal." Jenn was livid. Those "well-developed ways" were hardly ideal.

147426 tn?1317269232 I was just hopeing that some one can tell me some of the symptoms of Ms. I was in the hospital due to stroke like symptoms spend a few days there and had many heart test done, come to find out that I did not have a stroke , well that's a good thing I thought. And then a Neuro came in to see me, and told me that on my MRI he had seen somethings that he was not happy with, He said I think you might have Ms, and that he wanted to do a few more test.
Avatar f tn almost feels like it coming from their heart? I didn't read about anyone having this. This is what has me most worried. Heart attacks are in my family and I am deathly afraid that one day I will have a one. I just read today that anxiety gives a good beating to your heart and significantly increases your chances of a heart attack. Wish I wouldn't read up on it so much........it stresses me out! Let me know if anyone feels the lasting pain in the left side of their chest.
286034 tn?1201100440 I live in the UK on the border of Northumberland, although I am orginally from Yorkshire...I will always be a yorkshire pudding at heart though. That's me.
Avatar m tn I start to think that I may be having a stroke, heart attack or anuerysm....so I drink to calm down. I use to go to the hospital when I was younger (in my 20's). I've been to hospitals for panic attacks the day after drinking more times than I can remember...probably around 25-30 times. Sometimes I wouldn't even go in the hospital. Just setting in the parking lot would make me feel better. I have drug my family and friends through these episodes with me.
Avatar n tn Well, one very important insight is the recognition that in vulnerable individuals, the disease of addiction is produced by chronic administration of the drugs themselves. Drugs of abuse appear to commandeer circuits in the brain that are involved in the control of motivation, which means the addicted person's will can be impaired. Moyers: OK, now we're back to addiction and the brain. So there's solid evidence that alcohol, tobacco, cocaine, and heroin physically change the brain?
Avatar m tn A whole section is devoted to occult, including all the papers we've hashed here many times (this seems a new level of recognition by mainstream clinical practice) but no conclusions beyond "additional rigorous studies are needed". Also interesting is that their tx flow chart (Fig 2) explicitly says "no treatment recommended" for stages 0-1 and "consider treatment" for stage 2 - surprisingly unambiguous.
Avatar n tn About a year ago I started to experience a very strange feeling that occurs periodically when I move from a sitting to a standing position and start to walk. The sensation is as if my head and neck are throbbing with pressure and I have to stop walking or slow down and stop and stand still for a minute or so to make the sensation stop. Sounds are muffled in rhythm with the pulsations and I sometimes feel as if I will pass out, but never have. There is no pain.
233616 tn?1312790796 there are more doctors willing to fight to get you treatment if the insurance denies or balks. there is also a program through Lilly Pharmaceutical now, to help fight the denials, they make the brand called Humatrope which I am on. Because of this, and my low number, I breezed through the normal "fight" some insurances give people. Thank the Lord, and may this, my trial, PLEASE bless you all.
475555 tn?1469307939 There is simply no money to support a public awareness campaign from the CDC that would elevate viral hepatitis to anywhere near HIV, breast cancer, heart disease or other disease specific campaigns.
Avatar n tn I get high fevers with the common cold. I feel cold all the time. I do get heart palpitations from time to time and they just come out of know where. I do feel a tad frustrated as there is no drug for this condition. A lot of friends and family do not understand this condition as a result can never understand/relate to me feeling the way I do. #1 Always feeling tired.

1199040 tn?1265239024 Many vets were infected using a process which is a vector for transmission. Vets have been fighting for recognition that air gun injection was indeed a factor. The government has not been willing to own up to their responsibility. I was reading a HCV pamphlet distributed by the VA in.....2005, or thereabouts and it still did not list air gun injection as one of the risk factors. It seems to many Vets that the VA prefers to allege that drug use was the cause.

Avatar f tn He is a chiropractor, but gives therapy to people who have suffered brain injury, stroke as well as other neurological disorders. His findings last December. My left eye is not teaming up and lining up with my right eye- this is causing double vision. Because my eye is not pointing in the correct direction this is causing a change to my inner ear/vestibular system, called the vestibular ocular reflex, so my balance is affected.
