Avatar n tn It has been three months after the event and the following is part of a neuro consult--left hemisphere stroke, on CT chronic changes of subcortical white matter disease and remote focal infarctions associated with significant atrophy, significant spastic hemiparesis and language difficulty. He also feels she has reached a plateau with little expectation for future improvements. Probable underlying dementia superimposed on the stroke. I would like help dealing with her spasticity issues.
Avatar n tn My father had a similar sounding stroke on Dec. 8, 2006. He seemed pretty alert, spoke well, could swallow, etc. His major problems were left side paralysis and double vision. After about three weeks, he took his first steps and within 2 weeks of that was walking 40 feet with a walker. He was not able to start moving his left hand until about 4 weeks in. At that point, he could move all fingers and make a loose fist.
Avatar n tn 's won't put you on a diet pill??? It's bad for your heart! Unless you are one of the very few that has an ACTUAL MEDICAL PROBLEM YOU SHOULD NOT BE TAKING DRUGS! the dr.'s damn right. Cut out the processed food and exercise. Drugs are unhealthy and unnatural if you do not need them. If all else fails I would suggest increasing your coffee intake.. and all though I'm not into unnatural means to lose weight, I've noticed Dexatrim 20 helps give you energy.
Avatar f tn Why not try to breathe in slowly but deeply through your nose then exhale it gently out your mouth, do this until you feel relaxed and in control of your heart beats. A few points 1. Examine your diet (is it high in yeast, sugar, fats, caffeine? or low in fibre?) If so then address this. 2. Do you walk briskly for 20 mins a day? No well get those trainers on :) 3. Do you feel relaxed whilst having a bowel movement? No? ask yourself why not. 4. Do you work in an office and sit down all day.
Avatar n tn When stress, like exercise, increases the heart rate, it makes you a higher risk for stroke and heart attack in this profession. Since the stress levels suffered by EMTs in emergency situations, your heart rate may prevent you from getting and keeping a job. Alot of time exercises that are aerobic bring down the heart rate. Biking, swimming, low impact aerobics and power walking are good exercises that will give you a good workout without raising your heart rate too high.
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.
1099620 tn?1257569120 Repeated occurrences where the heart is so starved of oxygen that you have pain might lead to permanent damage - and eventually even heart failure far, far down the road. you probably didn't have a stroke per se, but did have a lack of oxygen to the brain from other reasons, which mimics the effects of a classical stroke variant angina is also called coronary spasm. You might even be having spasms in other arteries. You really should get it checked out.
Avatar n tn It is your choice but you should really investigate everything before making that decision. There is evidence that diet is responsible for heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and yes autoimmune disease. Guess it all depends on what you want to believe. I choose to believe that my body was designed to heal itself. Yes, our health is directly related to the choice we make.

Research shows that long-term consumption of pomegranate juice may also help slow aging and protect against cancer.

209987 tn?1451939065 He DID notice that my blood pressure is a wee bit too high, but doesn't want to give me meds until the heart results are back...he says mid November for sure...ugh. Of course, all of this is causing anxiety...the not knowing thing. Anyone have any suggestions on how to lower blood pressure naturally? Herbs? Diets? That sort of thing. The only thing he told me was to avoid coffee and stress...uh huh...coffee I can do, but avoid stress? How the heck do you do that?
Avatar n tn BP meds were not prescribed back then. She died in her sleep at age 83. Never had a heart attack or stroke. Had no heart problems, was fit as a fiddle, energy and everything. Don't know what her cholesterol was because they didn't check it back then.
Avatar m tn Cruciferous Vegetables and Other Leafy Greens Cruciferous vegetables—like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, Swiss chard, and bok choy—are all rich in folate, and the more folate you have in your diet, the lower your risk of obesity, heart disease, stroke, cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s, and depression. A recent study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that those with the highest folate levels lose 8.5 times more weight when dieting.
Avatar n tn The textbooks have a specialist evaluating a stroke patient and then prescribing a diet. In fact, though the level of dysphagia may vary. Some days the patient may not be able to swallow water. That afternoon the swallowing may improve. The next day it can regress. The aids should be able to recogize when food is being cheeked or spit up and immediately stop feeding and revert to a "thick" diet. Thickened liquids are preferable "thin" liquids.
Avatar f tn Hello. :) I'm a 25 year old, 5'4", 110 lb, female. I walk or bike at least 3 times a week for 35-45 minutes. I am on birth control pills. I am adopted and have no known genetic medical history. Since October I've been experiencing chest pains and am currently experiencing my third episode. I've always been very healthy and am, therefore, concerned about this somewhat recent chest pain stuff.

Avatar n tn Hi there I am 28 yrs old female I started with a stroke like episode 5 years ago after a head injury, Now every month I have a seizure with bad after migraine and right side weakness including facial... I am on no medication apart from Amitrypaline to help me sleep, and the only dx I have had from several dr's is we dont know or non epileptic seizures due to migraine?? it makes no sense at all I would have been better off if they said hemaplegic migraines... now I feel like im going mad...
Avatar m tn The risk of stroke or heart attack is still there, the same as it was before the surgery. The only difference is that a better blood flow has been supplied to the deficit area. Aspirin will be required for life to lower the risk of clotting. If your blood pressure has not improved post cabg, then this medication will also continue. A bypass operation will not lower cholesterol, so if your cholesterol is high, statins will always be a requirement.
Avatar f tn She had a lot of health issues but was stable with all her medications. She had an enlarged heart, a heart murmur, an enlarged liver, congestive heart failure, IVDD, malignant mass cell tumors, and malignant cells in her blood. She was taking 12.5mg of furosemide every twelve hours, 5 mg enalapril, 5 mg Vetmedin, Palladia twice weekly, 1.8 mg liquid gabepentin, rimadyl as needed, Pepcid AC as needed. Ruby was taking Palladia three times a week until her kidney values began to increase.
Avatar n tn Beta blockers by definition effect heart rate, since the 'beta' that is blocked is a receptor in the heart that effects heart rate. That said, some people respond differently to each beta blcoker. 2. Should I take a long acting beta blocker? This is person dependent. Some people get marked response to beta blockers with improvement of their symptoms, while some actually get worse. 3. Is it normal for PVC's to go away when I do exercise?
Avatar n tn Usually after I eat a particularly fatty meal, or if I eat cereal containing milk, in which milk makes me gassy, I start to feel my heart rate increase well above 60 bpm. If I drink 1 or 2 bottles of water, it seems to help a bit and makes me more comfortable. I always have to eat dinner about 3 hours before bed. If not, I will endure the uneasy rapid heart rate which will prevent me from resting. It sometimes also results in heartburn.
Avatar m tn Once you lose weight, you lower your risk for all sorts of illnesses, including heart attack, stroke, type II diabetes, etc. But if you lose weight only to gain it all back again, you actually increase your risk of these issues AND each time you put on the weight, the harder it is to lose it. In addition, the older you get, the harder it usually is to lose weight -- you are at the perfect age to get it off in a reasonable manner and be able to keep it off, by making good lifestyle changes.
Avatar n tn hCG administration is just ONE aspect of the complete hCG +diet program. Unfortunately many Healthcare Professionals modified the original method based on their own assumptions on how the method operates. In some cases modifications were performed to the extent that they do not include any of the basic and fundamental postulates of the hCG protocol, resulting in UNWANTED or side-effects.

Avatar n tn I wasn't really looking for reassurance at this point. I was looking for anything else that the Doc felt could cause this. I'm open to ideas. This sucks. It's DEFINITELY not just mental. I've got muscles spasming at times with nerve pain and palps. It seems to cycle every few weeks and get worse and better. I was hoping the Doc had maybe seen something like this before and had other thoughts on what it could be. My BP was only up accutely, I take Altace and it generally runs 120/80.
Avatar n tn you can do every other test, but that test shows all the nooks and crannys in your heart...all of it! We wasted so much time and money doing all these other heart related tests...and all coming back negative! I also read that you should be eating a diet high in iron---spinach, radishes, liver, etc, my fiance has been on it for a month and his symtoms have been a little more mild.

Avatar n tn Suicide is always on my mind but I know it is not the answer. I have even wished for a heart attact or stroke to end this misery. After 4 weeks of treatment my doctor was hoping for a drop of hep-c by about 500,000 virus. He was shocked and happy to report for the 1st time I have no virus in my system. I am more determine now to beat this thing, and I will, side effects and all. I would suggest you talk to your doctor right away. YOU will decide if the treatment should end.
