783212 tn?1295031606 My father has rheumatoid arthritis as well as my mother. My Grandmother has had a stroke, my father has had two heart attacks and is not losing to lung cancer. My Auntie has Scleroderma and my brother has Epilepsy. SO, for me to have constant issues with my head and muscles and bones is worrisome.

659608 tn?1318292966 I have had a strange pain in my neck, jaw area for months, and seems to get worse when my chest hurts. My Primary doctor does not think any of this is heart or stroke related, however last week the cardioligist at the stress test, said they were. I am very discouraged and so tired of feeling like this all the time. I have no energy, and am unable to do many of the things I have always done. Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks.

Avatar n tn can a stroke be faked, or caused by drug abuse and is it normal for the flacicity to come and go randomly sometimes with in 10 min or so.
Avatar f tn Can too much alcohol consumption cause a stroke? Both of my parents have suffered mild strokes (in both cases effecting one eye) They both drink straight vodka daily. Probably a 16 oz glass filed with ice then vodka poured in.
Avatar m tn I was fooling myself to believe she had not had a stroke when all the signs were there. Two days later they told me “oh yes she had a BIG stroke.” Why didn’t the ER find it, and why didn’t they treat her in some way even if the CAT scan was negative? I don’t have a medical background, so I would appreciate any info. I plan to call a doctor to find out what protocol they did use if any.

Avatar n tn I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a stroke in the cerebellum and signs of a mini stroke that they classified as 'old'. I fortunately did not have ongoing loss of speech, or weakness in limbs etc...but have suffered from weird dizziness and electric shock feelings in my head. They seem to get better - but then get wrose again....Dr's are saying it is maybe anxiety --but is not. I have had anxiety before and these are different.
233915 tn?1218816727 The headacheas are what brought us to the doctor who ordered the MRI. When the MRI showed signs of a stroke, she sent us to a neurologist. The neurologist seemed to think the stroke was "old" and occured before she was born, or as an infant because other than the "migraines" she suffered no symptoms. He feel the migraines are brought on by puberty and non related to the stroke. The stroke occured in the cerebullum.
518031 tn?1295578974 I look around, and all I see are signs of the times coming. I see in my own family the attacks that we are under by the enemy. Cancer,eveil spirits, what ever the enemy can throw at this family he has. Praise GOD there are many prayers warriors in our family. I am going to give some examples, and i would like your honest opinions, if you think it is attack by the enemy or just everyday life,.In May my cousin and her huswband were ordained, and they are planting a church in Ithaca MI.
Avatar n tn Forgive me on the meds, I guess, I assumed that since you had your stroke, that they might of had you on some other meds. What is your blood pressure like? Besides being cold and such what other symptoms do you have? You mentioned hurting alot, even before your stroke, I have that also, muscle and joint pain that just never goes away, It is hard to live in pain every day, and as sad as it sounds, we just all kind of get use to it huh? Sure makes for some bad days though.
2005895 tn?1327725390 A MRI will definately show signs of a stroke. I had a cat scan and it showed nothing until I had a MRI and it showed a brainstem stroke. Take slow steps and slow movements for everything she does and it will get better.
Avatar n tn Signs of heatstroke are very high temperature (more than 104 F), some confusion or personality changes, even a coma, and the skin may be hot and dry. Other signs include a fast beating heart, fast breathing, blood pressure abnormalities, lack of sweating despite a high temperature, changes in consciousness, dizziness/light-headedness, headache and nausea, and fainting. As you can see, headache, nausea, and vomiting are signs of heatstroke.
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 m tn I am 35 years old and had an ischemic stroke a few weeks back. We aren't sure when it happened only that it did. Came after bouts of daily headaches and stress. I have normal BP and my cholesterol was slightly elevated but nothing significant. I had every heart test and everything was fine. They have me on 325mg of aspirin a day as well as 80mg of Lipitor and a multivitamin. My question is - not that I plan to get drunk or anything, but is it ok to occasionally drink?
1344197 tn?1392822771 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 m tn the docotr said it looks like the stroke was when he had his open heart surgery. my question if anyone can help is why did he have the signs of a stroke last year (has had no signs since then) and has now had the effects since that one day in June. mom talked to the people with TBI associatin and they said that it sounds like in May and part of June he was having TIAs that led up to his stroke and if taht was the case it would show as if he did have an old stroke is this true can anyone help?
Avatar n tn My 84 year old Grandmother just suffered a massive stroke and is in a coma/resting state, been in this state for 3 days now. It effected the whole right hemisphere and a part of the left. She has also lost movement on her left side. The first day she ws in this coma she ws moving her body a lot probably because they gave her a medication by the name of PHENERGAN she was allergic to. The second day she started trying to talk kind of groaning.
Avatar m tn in 2005 had a grandma seizure and signs of a stroke. Blood work was normal. mixing up my letters. write AZ but mean AL. I did hit my head for the 6th time in Feb. another concussion.
Avatar n tn sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body; sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding; sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination and sudden, severe headache with no known cause. If any of these were observed, immediately seek help. Otherwise,other differentials for a limp hand can be nerve-related or musculoskeletal in nature.
Avatar n tn On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
429949 tn?1224695179 My only brother died 16 years ago of a massive heart attack at age 31. He had a blood clot that went to his heart. And now my cousin had two blood clots that went to her brain. They had put her on some kind of new birth control about six weeks ago and the doctors think it may be related to the stroke. I have had six MRI's , five with contrast. All five follow up MRI's show no new lesions.
Avatar m tn He had a heart attack about 3 years ago, but everything's been fine since then, he takes meds for the heart/cholesterol/blood pressure etc. which is all normal. I'm quite worried and trying to convince him to go to the doc, but it might take a while and want to have an idea of what's going on. any help is greatly appreciated.
2175879 tn?1338358628 I have had diagnosed stokes/T.I.A.s. Now I am being told none of it happened, and that some "trigger" has caused these stroke like symptoms to manifest themselfs. Any direction on where to go now? Or if anyone else out there has had this happen to them. I have served honorably in the military, and have never lied about what is happening to me and all my healthcare professionals believe that I am telling the truth and not lying to get attention, out of work, or a disability claim.
Avatar n tn sounds correct to me. Yes be it a heart attack or brain stroke time is the key. Your neurologist will be the best person to advise you regarding the warning signs.
Avatar f tn My father had a brain stem stroke five days ago. The doctors told me it was very bad from the beginning. He had a blood clot and it is still there. We chose not to have a thrombectomy done to remove the clot because it had a 90 percent failure rate and seemed very risky...yet I wish we had done it. My father has very low response. He can hold our hands (firm grip) and moves his eyebrows when you say his name but that is about it. he is pretty much unconscious.
