Avatar n tn There seems to be a relationship between an increased incidence of a TIA and the presence of a patent foramen ovale. At this point , a migraine may still be a differential considering that your patent foramen ovale has been repaired.Yet, a TIA is not completely excluded. TIA is usually difficult to assess diagnostically since symptoms may resolve within 24 hours. Were your neck vessels and blood vessels in your extremities evaluated? A thromboembolism has to be ruled out.
Avatar n tn Absolutely start cholesterol lowering medication such as lipitor especially because the protective effects of estrogen on your cholesterol level will soon be lost after menopause. This of course does NOT mean that estrogen replacement will lower your stroke risk. But it means you have to be extra careful with the cholesterol. Eat healthy and get exercise. Stop smoking if you do.

763858 tn?1234815337 Identical twins have about 10 times (1 in 70) the incidence of the general population ~(1 in 700). First order relatives have about 7 times (1 in 100) the incidence of the general population. There are certain genetic alleles that seem to predispose someone to developing MS, but MS is not a genetic disease. The predisposition seems to be associated with certain HLA alleles. I have a 2nd order uncle with MS. That is about a 1:400 incidence rate.
147426 tn?1317269232 I had an excessively strong left knee jerk reaction which is not indicative of me having had a stroke. He managed to pull out a long time forgotten memory of mine when I was 21 after the birth of my daughter. I could not physically get out of bed I was hurting all over and yhe doctor thought it was Polio. After a few weeks I was okay again. I can't remember being treated with any meds. Anyway, this episode was used by my present day Neurologist as probably being the first symptoms of my MS.
Avatar n tn old) was scheduled to have surgery last month to close this PFO he has. They found it in Oct. 2000, after he had a stroke, and they did a TEE test. He also had a TIA in January of 2001. The morning of the surgery, he changed his mind, but did have the angiogram, which came back fine. This cardiologist & surgeon are very upset with him because he won't have the surgery.
458406 tn?1219588458 Dear Dr Hagan, Thank you so much for your professional advise, I am most great full to you, the only trouble I have is in convincing my father there’s something wrong with him, he’s of old school, nearly 70 and thinks his body can just mend its self, he wouldn’t except that he had had a transient attack the last time, even our local hospital failed to notice what had happened to him, it was only one of my friends who I was talking to at the time just after my fathers attack, who explained to m
538435 tn?1213730159 While glycerol injections have a high initial success rate, the incidence of pain recurrence is great -- after five years. The most commonly used surgical technique is microvascular decompression, an inpatient procedure requiring general anesthesia that allows surgeons to reposition arteries or veins pressing on the trigeminal nerve.
Avatar n tn Does MS cause such severe head pain? All of my MRI's have been negative so it isn't a stroke or TIA or cancer. One time, entire right side of head, as if you divided my head in half, the scalp was extremely sensitive to touch, 48 hours. Do lesions ever cause symptoms? (but no lesions can be found on my MRI's) I remain positive but I am largely homebound, often bedridden, and no doctor knows what is going on. However, I have 100% of the symptoms of Progressive-Relapsing MS, without diagnosis.
Avatar m tn The study enrolled patients who had 70 to 90 % narrowing of the arteries in the brain and had already experienced a mild stroke or a stroke-like event called a TIA ...... The scientist expected the stent to decrease the risk of stroke in patients also receiving aggressive medical management by 35% over two years. Instead 14.7% of patients who received the Gateway-Wingspan stenting system had a second stroke or died compared with the 5.8% who only took medication and modified their lifestyle.
Avatar n tn One more thing about adult-onset dysautonomia—there is a higher incidence of this being a paraneoplastic occurrence, meaning that it can be associated with cancer, so unless you have had these symptoms for a number of years, it should be further evaluated.
Avatar n tn Well, you CANNOT control a TIA or a stroke. A TIA may only be seconds long. IF your speech difficulty was a TIA, you may have seemed like you could control it because it was short. That doesn't mean it was something within your control. It was just short. You were lucky. If you have had a grand mal seizure, it doesn't mean you can't have other kinds of seizures. My 3rd stroke was diagnosed after the seizure activity that resulted from it.
Avatar m tn [8,20] Further studies are still necessary to confirm this observation, because genotype 1 patients in this cohort received only 24 weeks of therapy, which was not standard and the treatment duration might be insufficient. In summary, a high incidence (39%) of our patients had experienced severe anemia during antiviral therapy, and development of severe anemia before 12 weeks of therapy was significantly correlated with the EVR.
Avatar n tn I got better from the dementia but it turned out to be from having strokes, the above symptoms can be from mini-strokes or Transient Ischemic Attacks. I only found this out after I recently had a stroke in my eye and lost part of my vision. They tested my lupus anticoagulant. You may want to suggest the doctors do this test. I also have raynaud's but I'm not sure how this affects the blood vessels in your head.
Avatar f tn since telaprivir increases the incidence of anemia, i wonder if docs are thinking about lowering the dose of ribavirin at the beginning of treatment. this is just a thought and i would want to follow up with the doc before i started the meds.
551343 tn?1506834118 I stayed with this neuro for three years. I had periods of being really unwell, bedbound and husband taking time off to look after me. These were hellish years with symptoms. September 2001 neuro discharged me with ME. Five weeks later I had a second opinion with a leading UK MS specialist which my GP had arranged months before. he took hold of my hands and said I had done the right thing in coming to see him. In my notes he wrote "I think this is ms".
Avatar m tn I spray the tub down with bleach/water after getting out and noticed when I spray the faucet part some of it turns black (black mold?). Could this be a bot fly? What do I need to do to get rid of it. Now that the dermatologist was no hope (second doc I've seen, first gave me Pemethrin which did not work) I was thinking of ordering some Stromectol / Ivermectin and Green Kleen Green online.
