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 n tn Do these syptomns sound like she whould have a CAT to prove or disprove any possibilty of a Mild Stroke due to heavy Wine and Smoking? Since she is hospitalized presently recovering form her broken hip, should they also test for a stroke?
Avatar f tn what happens with significant MVR some blood fails to pumped into circulation with each stroke. 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.
313462 tn?1238126640 It is difficult to tell without a complete clinical evaluation because these symptoms could be due to panic attack, heart disease or a mild stroke like TIA. I would urge you to get a clinical evaluation done. In the meantime do some deep breathing exercises to keep anxiety and stress and under control.
Avatar n tn My 88 year old mother had an angiogram (tube placed through her groin) 10 days ago, due to narrowing of the arteries to the heart. Her GP seems to think this may have caused a mild stroke - is this possible? To me she has no outward stroke symptoms although she cannot remember everything as she did before -- she is nowhere near as 'alert' (doing crosswords etc) and says her head feels like it is full of 'cotton wool'. Is this possible and is there any treatment for this type of stroke?

Avatar n tn my 19 year old granddaughter was airlifted to a trauma center from her college with all the classic symptoms of a stroke (drooping face/eye, left arm weakness, left leg weakness, could not move her tongue to the left, could not inflate her cheeks on the left side pain in the right side of her head) after admission to the local ER her symptoms started to subside and after arriving at the new trauma center the symptoms continued to subside.
447939 tn?1235065543 EF is the percentage of blood pumped with each stroke. There are people in the heart disorder population that is in the heart failure range that do not experience any symptoms. Then there are people that experience chest pain with or without exertion, shortness of breath, fatigue, etc.
Avatar n tn The neurologist thinks these headaches are migraines and not related to the stroke, but he also says that the headache symptoms she describes are not typical in migraines. Could her headaches and cerebellum stroke be related also? I'm concerned that the doctor is being too quick to assume the stroke occured before birth when he also says that an MRI can NOT show the age of a stroke.
462085 tn?1207282930 I would like to know whether there is a good chance these symptoms will subside by themselves naturally. I am also trying to figure out where my symptoms fit in in the general scale from mild to severe. Here is my short story: I just turned 46. Never have had a panic attack until 2 weeks ago. I have a stresful job and have always handled it fine. I had been a smoker on and off until 2 weeks ago. I drink 2-3 glass of wine probably every other day.
Avatar n tn My husband, almost 60, was diagnosed 15+ years ago with RP, then 5 years ago with Glaucoma. Recently, he experienced a mild stroke, will virtually no loss of motor skills, speech or comprehension. But I noticed right away that his vision had changed substantially. Unfortunately, the medical community does not seem prepared to address the vision loss in any way at all. In fact, they seem to simply shrug it off -- he was already blind before the stroke, so that didn't cause it. Well DUH...
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 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 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?
Avatar n tn My father died of a massive heart attack at sixty(22 years of diabetes and hard work)and my mother had a major stroke after his death,and has almost made a full recovery,grandkids helped.Am I headed down the same road? Can I do something about this with out meds?
Avatar m tn I have a bad history of anxiety and depression and was hospitalized about 15 odd times for thinking I was having a heart attack or stroke, all tests were normal. Because of my concerns, I was sent to a cardiologist in 2013 to get a stress and echo test. Both of which came back normal. I've lately had really bad heartburn that's not relieved by medicines, even prescription strength dosage of Zintac that was given to me by the doctor.
Avatar f tn I went to a local medical centre where they hooked me up and did an ECG(EKG). Two doctors said I'd had a mild heart attack and to go straight to the ER. I did, it seemed extremely busy and they didn't seem too interested in me. Anyway, I don't remember much of what they do another ECG - they may have checked for enzymes, I don't remember. Then a doctor came in and said 'you didn't have a heart attack' and pretty much see ya later. If this is true, why did it take 10 days to recover?
1896811 tn?1323981959 We differ a bit in regards to what brough us to the doctor - I had stroke like symptoms. After initial dx I went for a 2nd opinion to make me feel more confident. My doc suggested it, but I already had it lined up I was so sure he was wrong. Maybe that is something that would help put your mind at ease too...Just a thought.
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 dad has recently (within the last week) had a mild stroke. He is only 48 and reasonably healthy so it came has a huge shock. The stroke was a clot to the left side of his brain. His memory has not been affected and his doctors are very impressed with the progress of his recovery in the short time since the stroke. They believe after all of his rehabilitation he should be back to 100% independance. The outlook is good in that respect even though at the moment its all still very saddening.
Avatar n tn I am a 38year old male, with recently diagnosed mild hypertension (typically 140/90). I am not particularly overweight (190lbs, 6'0"). I do not smoke, drink reasonably moderately (normally two days a week alcohol free, 2-3 standard drinks other days), and walk/run 3.75miles 3-4 days per week. My work is white-collar, office bound and prone to regular senior management stress levels.
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 f tn On Aug. 9, '07 as we were going out for dinner my left arm became tingly and numb, thinking it to be strange, I just looked at it for a minute and thought I should sit down, I didn't feel well, in trying to tell my husband to "call 911, something was not right"...I found that I could not speak. My husband said I was trying to talk but nothing was moving, all he could tell was I was making noise.
Avatar n tn I am just going to go on the premise that it is a stroke. (The TEE showed my heart wouldn't have caused a stroke). Do you know about the group "Friends with MS" ? It is a really nice group. Here is the link: Also, there is a chat on Yahoo under Health & Wellness, user chats FMS/CFS/MS/LUPUS/ARTHR/ETC (or something to that effect). A good chat room! Thanks, again.
1133274 tn?1260365528 What could possibly happen to someone who just had a mild stroke with a little blood clotting on the right side of the brain? I´m a mother of two, seperated for a couple of years now. I just suffered from a mild stroke last week. I undergone all the test right after i reached the ER. I had CT scanning.... but they sent me to MR scanning because they can´t really see if i had a blood clotting. I regained the feeling on my left side after 5 hours in the hospital...
Avatar m tn I see it is a box of shredded leaves which people burn and inhale to acheive a mild intoxication. I still have trouble holding steady sleep patterns as well as eating habits. Most persistent and unchanging are lingering hallucinations. Objects wave, grow and shrink, vibrate. Tracers follow moving objects and and things begin to look fake, or 2-D, while shifting in color. The good news is i have not lost any motor control.
Avatar f tn Excess calcium is usually urinated off, but when the PTH goes into overdrive and doesn't scale back in response to the rising calcium level, the calcium cannot be excreted fast enough and it builds up, creating all kinds of horrible symptoms -and if it gets high enough it can cause your blood pressure to spike, causing a stroke, or a super-high heart rate, causing a heart attack. Also, the PTH rips calcium from your bones when its demand for calcium outstrips your dietary intake.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 70 years old and had a mild CVA of the thalamus on 6/2/2008. Only symtoms were loss of feeling on left side. All other faculties are good. Still have much tingling all over left side and numbness in some areas. Fine motor skills of left hand are bad. Gross motor skills and strength are good. Pain receptors are working for the most part. Sensory receptors are not functioning very well.
Avatar m tn To all, actually. Wow! What a relief to read that so many other stroke victims have exactly the same symptoms as my 93-year-old mother since her stroke almost 4 weeks ago. Glad to hear that these phenomena seem to diminish with time. She takes Dilantin to prevent seizures, Resperadol (sp?), and at night, if needed, another sedative for these issues. A bladder infection and then a rash from the antibiotic also added to her considerable discomfort and agitation.
