Common Questions and Answers about Hemorrhagic stroke signs and symptoms


Avatar n tn I am a recovering addict/alcoholic and relapsed recently. My last relapse, I believe I might have suffered a TIA, and had a CT scan afterwards coming up normal for my age 28.
Avatar n tn Hi, Hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel bursts inside the brain, bleeds and causes swelling. Most often, hemorrhagic stroke is associated with high blood pressure, which stresses the artery walls until they break. Other causes include aneurysm and malformation. This is less common but more frequently fatal than ischemic stroke. Long term hypertension, even if controlled may have contributed as in the case of your husband. It would really help if you discuss this with your doctor.
Avatar m tn It is not recommended in either cardio embolic stroke or hemorrhagic stroke. Anticoagulation is the treatment in the first and control of blood pressure in the second case. Take care.
Avatar f tn With the headache or the clinical symptoms presented, it is difficult to say whether it is a thrombotic or a hemorrhagic stroke. Stroke can be ischemic or hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke occurs as a result of blockage to an artery. Hemorrhagic strokes are due to bleeding and more common in patients on blood thinners. Yes it is possible to detect if the stroke is hemorrhagic or ischemic, with an MRI. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Therapy depends on the type of the stroke and includes drugs like anticoagulants and antithrombotic for ischemic stroke, the same could be hazardous for hemorrhagic stroke. Hope this helps. Take care.

Avatar m tn Hi,my 57 year old mother suffered a hemorrhagic stroke,she was pretty healty before this,but she does smoke.The doc said it was 4 cm and it was on her left side,her vision is affected and her capability to read. She was in the hospital 5 days,her blood pressure,blood work,everything looks good which is very weird!Other then that she was conscious all the time,no memory loss or anything like that. My question is why the docs didn't give her any medication while in the hospital or after?
Avatar n tn hi Katie, as your mum has had a severe bleeding some of the symptoms are due to the pressure on the brain causing by blood. it would be absorbed by the time and some of the symptoms may get better. I don't know which but most of my cases having hemorrhagic stroke had improvement in their speech, maybe your mum be like them. it depends on the local of the injury in the brain. but the most important is rehabilitation for her under the supervision of her neurologist.

Hope this answers your question. Take care!
Avatar n tn my husband was on Plavix, Protonix and aspirin. He had a hemorrhagic stroke. Could this have been caused by this combination?

368646 tn?1208393887 Is there any relation of a hemorrhagic stroke causing vasculitis on the affected side? Doctors are at a loss as to why Sed Rate keeps increasing (Lupus and MS have been ruled-out.) and recovery has gotten worse.
Avatar f tn A family member just passed away after 72 hours after having a massive hemorrhagic stroke. No symptoms other than a fever. After a year on alcohol abstinence she was consuming about 2 bottles a day of wine. She had also had a bike accident 4 months earlier but CAT scan at ER showed no damage. I am looking for answers. Thank you.
Avatar f tn My 93-year-old mother had moderate dementia--apparently vascular--which I know makes stroke symptoms worse. She'd been taking Plavix and aspirin for blockage of the carotid artery and 2-3 noticeable TIAs about five years ago, plus one about 3 months ago. Three weeks ago she had a hemorrhagic intracranial stroke on the left side. Not paralyzed, but right arm out of control and waving about and hand grasping or hitting hard.
Avatar f tn Hi Jazmin, I understand where you're coming from as my mom had a brain aneurysm in 1994 and a hemorrhagic stroke on October 12th this year. She had a rebleed last weekend so has now had 3 brain surgeries and she is semi-conscious. When it comes to the brain, it seems that it is always a case-by-case basis and there are so many unknowns. I literally just bought this book http://www.mystrokeofinsight.com/ this morning and already, a lot is starting to make sense.
Avatar n tn Since his admission, he made some progress on his muscle strength, but his mental status waxes and wanes, and he has left hemiplagia, dysarthria and dysphagia. His blood pressure was controlled with multuple BP meds per tube. We need to transfer him back to China. I have been searching for information about the effects of air travel on hemorrhagic stroke. Does anyone know what is the air travel recommendation for hemorrhagic stroke patient? How long after onset can they take airplane?
Avatar n tn She had to have brain surgery to remove the blood and she almost died. I am not sure what an infarct is, and what is a hemorrhagic transformation could you explain it to me? Her head hurt for the whole time after her surgery and it just seems to me the doctors should have found out why her head was hurting. Is there anything that can be done to make her better? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Many patients who have survived an episode hemorrhagic stroke have disorders of sleep and wake, which are related to the quality of life. Both the daytime sleepiness and problems sleeping at night has been reported in about one third of patients. Recovery continues for years and patients develop good coping skills and a positive attitude toward their recovery, even when they experience ongoing problems. Best.
