Avatar m tn He has retained movement in his limbs and can walk with some assistance, However he has no memory or recognition function. He does not recognise his own family which is heart breaking, He is extremely restless and irritable.

Avatar f tn My mother, who is 93 going on 94 had a significant hemorragic stroke on the left side of the brain on Feb. 19, 2008--2 1/2 weeks ago as of this writing. I would like to know more about the prognosis for someone her age. She had two noticable TIAs about six years ago (no treatment because she didn't recognize them), and was diagnosed with a carotid artery 80% blocked, so she has taken aspirin and Plavix since them.
Avatar f tn But I was able to compose a wonderful e-mail today in order to continue issues close to my heart. Thank you for suggesting this wonderful program and I hope others will find this program is useful as I know I will.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? According to the American Heart Association, TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but no lasting damage. This occurs when a blood clot temporarily clogs an artery. The symptoms occur rapidly and last a short time. The good thing is recovery is complete. It may recur and the risk for future stroke depends on the cause of TIA and management of risk factors.
Avatar n tn I would get a second opinion about this. The idea that they won't repair the heart until you have a stroke is amazing. Strokes can cause long-lasting damage. If a person is lucky, they'll have a small stroke and recover. If not, well, that's not a chance I wouldn't want to take. It just seems like an odd way to handle this situation.
Avatar f tn I was told that my elderly mom had a major stroke, first by a clot, they have said.. and then another issue days later(?) cause by an atrial fibrillation. Now they say the situation is critical... R sided stroke, and my mom hasn't really regained consciousness. her MRI shows one major stoke, and then a subsequent one caused by bleeding. Mannitol given and swelling of the brain has greatly subsided. Reacts to painful stimuli, by moving toes, when pinched under the arm. NG tube in place.
Avatar n tn I'm 17 weeks into an exercise program to recover from being pretty deconditioned. Starting out with 10 minute walks, and now I walk 30 minutes or go 20 minutes on my elliptical trainer every day. My resting heart rate has dropped from mid 80s to low 70s, and anxiety or mild exertion doesn't send my heart rate above 100 like it used to. But the last couple weeks, I've noticed that my heart rate has been going up more rapidly on the elliptical trainer.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, rehabilitation is the only effective way to help the patient regain function to the possible extent and prevent from permanent losses. If rehabilitation program is appropriately instituted, most of the stroke patients can regain maximum functions with appropriate therapy, training and support services.
Avatar m tn I had a stroke several months ago and they have me on these statin drugs in which I am not in any favor of, just wandering what some thoughts would be to go with this omega q plus and get off the statins.

For coordinated rehabilitation program a team of a neurologist, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist and a speech-language pathologist, a nutritionist work together to help you in your recovery.
Avatar n tn Well, last week I started a running program. I just did it 3 times last week for 20 minutes a day (walking for 5 minutes, running for 60 seconds, then walking for 90 seconds alternating). It's not too strenuous. I just started week 2 yesterday where I walked for 5 minutes, jog for 90 seconds, then walk for 2 minutes alternating. When I was done, I could feel my heart skipping beats. This went on all evening!
Avatar f tn Of course, I refuse to even join FB...something about their biometric face recognition program that gets under my skin, no pun intended.
744637 tn?1250803022 Hi, It is difficult to differentiate complicated migraine from stroke. The symptoms of stroke develop very rapidly while the symptoms of complicated migraine develop insidiously. MRI and CT scan in patients of stroke shows the characteristic small vessel ischemic changes. The best treatment for migraine is recognition and avoidance of trigger. Medications like NSAIDS are used to abort acute attacks of migraine. Other medications include butalbital, isometheptene and botox.

Avatar m tn This happens by a system of vasodilation and vasoconstriction coupled with the pumping rate and stroke volume of the heart. Rather than make frequent changes in volume, the body changes the configuration of the total container (all the vessels) and increases the speed at which the resource is renewed.
Avatar m tn I was 2 1/2 years past my firt stroke and working out 5 days a week. My second stroke was a total suprise to me & my doctor. By God's Grace I'm doing good. My question is does intense exercise put you at more risk?
Avatar f tn Hi, and Welcome to the forum. My needs are taken care of by my sister, who lives with me, so I can't help you. Even though you have to keep your posts short I wanted to ask if you have investigated any of the "Voice-Recognition" software packages that allow you to move through the programs you use and through the internet using just voice commands. You can write anything in just about any good program by just speaking.

Avatar n tn Usually, Lacunar infarct occurs due to occlusion of brain arteries and results into stroke. Therefore, this may be associated with headache, numbness and paralysis like symptoms. Unfortunately, rehabilitation is the only effective way to help the patient regain function to the possible extent and prevent from permanent losses. If rehabilitation program is appropriately instituted, most of the stroke patients can regain maximum functions with appropriate therapy, training and support services.
