Mild heart stroke symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Mild heart stroke symptoms


Avatar n tn if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn To maintain adequate blood flow with a decrease in stroke volume is to increase the heart rate. The math for cardiac output is stroke volume times heart rate for one minute. Frankly, I don't believe you have significant MVR because you should also have the symptoms of shortness of breath with exertion and muscle fatigue.
Avatar n tn Physical therapy and speech therapy ASAP.

Avatar n tn More serious conditions that can lead to lightheadedness include heart problems (such as abnormal heart rhythm or heart attack), stroke, and severe drop in blood pressure (shock). If any of these serious disorders is present, you will usually have additional symptoms like chest pain, a feeling of a racing heart, loss of speech, change in vision, or other symptoms. The most common causes of vertigo are benign positional vertigo and labyrinthitis.
Avatar n tn about a week ago my father complained of chest and arm pain. when i suggested a mild heart attack he did not take me seriously and failed to see a doctor. he then came home a couple nights ago with a terrible black eye. apparently he had gotten in to a dispute that ended in violence and was hit in the head with a 2x4. He refused once more to go to the doctor. he did not show any signs of concusion so we dissmissed it.
Avatar n tn If there are neurological symptoms persisting for more than 24 hours, it is classified as a cerebrovascular accident, or stroke. You have to be alert and followup your doctor regularly,take youe medicines control your cholesterol and blood pressure levels, as weakness of your muscles may precipitate a stoke.
2078882 tn?1333486061 Woohoo!! that made my day, since my GP wasnt overly helpful with my symptoms and conditions, I was really dreading going back and having them same ol condesending conversation with him! So I have a month to monitor some of my symptoms and then hopefully will have some direction in a diagnosis the end of April! Its been a rough three weeks, with major symptoms and I feel like a burden has been lifted for now.
Avatar n tn Nancy Dear Nancy, These intermittent symptoms have a cardiac type pattern, a stroke is a very unlikely cause of chest pain, but the combination of chest pain with vague symptoms in the left arm is very suggestive of a heart problem. Typically this occurs during a heart attack but obviously this has been excluded.
Avatar n tn my father had a mild stroke last dec.12,2007, how many months he would take to live a normal life? mild stroke can cure? and it will return to a normallife?
Avatar n tn you should go to a neurologist or a primary doctor to have this evaluated. you may have been dehydrated (and your blood pressure was too low for you). why have you lost so much weight? are you exercising too much or on a special restrictive diet? do you get enough sleep? there is a good chance that this was a mild faint spell rather than a mini-stroke but you won't know until you have a full evaluation.
Avatar m tn yes i have had stress test, ekg's , heart monitors , heart ultrasound the works they told me it was a panic disorder . im only taking .50 of xanax when needed which is maybe once every few days now and i understand xanax can cause headaches but the ones i get are always in the same spot back lower left of my head and they spark my mind into thinking TSA or beginnings of a stroke. resulting in panic attack .
Avatar n tn I believe a stroke occurs when a blood clot explods in the brain. So I don't know how a hole in his heart would affect that. (But then you are asking the doctor not me). My husband had open heart 3 years ago (age 43). He also suffered being tired all the time up to his surgery. He had previously suffered a mild heart attack at some point. He failed his stress test after going to the doctor due to shoulder pain (2 years prior). His recovery was at least 6 months.
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
Avatar n tn I have to get a new cardiologist here, and wonder if this is something I need to get looked into right away, if the symptoms are more neurological than heart related...I am not functioning well with the fatigue, and did stop working recently...until I feel stronger and have more energy. I am concerned because of my past medical history, and frustrated because I am tired of feeling this way! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
1012964 tn?1251819426 Hi, One of the major complications of a heart surgery is stroke. You might have suffered a mild stroke while undergoing surgery or soon after and hence the symptoms of memory loss and confusion. The symptoms will get better with a proper management plan that involves medication, exercises, good nutrition and psychotherapy. Please consult a neurologist for the complete neurological examination and management. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
Avatar n tn s/transesophogeal dopller for diagnosis. She feels that my heart valve may be getting worse and that the symptoms I am having could be caused by this.

Avatar n tn I'm a 45-year-old male in generally good health. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about 6 months ago, having a TSH level of 9.75. Since then I was prescribed 15mg of Armour at my request instead of Synthroid because I was concerned about possible side effects including stroke. My last blood test a few weeks ago had my TSH down to 2.8 on Armour. My doctor increased Armour to 30mgs because I was still having symptoms. He said that he would like to have my TSH drop to 1.5.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.
2175879 tn?1338355028 It was determined today by another doctor that I had a mild stroke, not a TIA. That explains atleast for me, why although my symptoms have improved but not gone away like a TIA is expected to. Reading all these questions on TIA sure helped me deal with this, but I think that there are other people that have had strokes and been labled as TIA's because, just like me, the stroke fixed itself, but has left its footprint.
Avatar n tn and now my heart is begining to hurt when i breath deep... im healthy weight, exercise, regular heart beat... should i go to a specialty doctor or does anyone know what could commonly cause these symptoms?
