Avatar f tn I am 72. I had a mild hemorrhagic stroke in 2014. MRI revealed abnormal cerebral artery with Moyamoya-like vessels. ( Moyamoya disease has been ruled out) I suffered no effects from the stroke. For the first year, I felt slight burning sensations and quirks on the affected side in my head. These are gone and for the last 5 mo. I feel waves or flow on the affected side over my eye and across my head where this abnormality is. I have no pain. This continuous flow feeling is disturbing.
Avatar f tn Hi auntsissi , I am really sorry to hear about your father’s condition .Itching could occur after stroke if the stroke is in the thalamus area of the brain which receives the sensory information of pain , touch , temperature , pressure and other sensations from all over the body . The onset may be from days to weeks after the stroke . Topical therapy with moisturizers and emollients helps alleviate the itching . Treatment with amitriptylene 50 mg a day results in resolution of the itching .
Avatar n tn One of the most common after effects of strokes is severe or mild pain in various parts of the body. Pain can usually be minimized very easily with pain medication. Many will just require standard pain relief such as an aspirin while others may need something much stronger such as hospital-grade pain relief medications including morphine. Also, "aproximately 8 percent of people who have had a stroke will suffer from a neuropathic pain caused by damage to neurons in the brain".
2175879 tn?1338355028 Doing a journal on my diet, weight, and diabetes numbers after my TIA/Stroke. Talking to one of my doctors two days ago, he read a new article that states that the medical comunity has revised their take on TIA's. They now no that there can be a longer recovery period than previously believed (1 to 24 hours), and even permanent damage. I now realize that I am having troubles remembering things I did just the day before (like what I ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner).
Avatar n tn Thirdly, probably irrelevant, but still worth checking, is the possibility of a mild stroke. My Mother suffered one of those and she seemed to change into another person. However, after a couple of years, most of her came back. Heart surgery does pose a risk for strokes and although probably wrong, it may be worth asking the Dr what he/she thinks. Mini/mild strokes do not usually show the symptoms of the face dropping on one side or the body being weak on one side.
Avatar m tn As my DD is in Keppra, and has previously been on other seizure meds, the Keppra, by far has had the least amount of side-effects. You could ask if some of her mood changes, memory loss, etc. are from the stroke vs. the Keppra. Please do not wean her off the medication without a Dr's directive... that could cause withdrawal seizures. My thoughts are with you that your mother gets well soon.
1213000 tn?1280463161 5 days after this angiogram, I went to cardio rehab and worked out pretty good on the treadmill. That night I had a mild stroke affecting the left arm and leg. Some weaknes and loss of dexterity in both but I am told it is mild, although frustrating. they did not find the cause. I wonder what it was and if it could be connected to the angiogram knocking something loose then, when I exercied, maybe it came all the way lose and went to the brain? any thoughts?
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.
Avatar m tn I do have a panic disorder so ive been told , most of my symptoms were cardiac related such as pain in my left shoulder and chest , numbness in my left arm and throat ,and flutters of heart and lungs, after having these symptoms for 3 months they have all subsided alot and im almost normal again , but lately ive had this small dull headache that goes away and comes back throughout each day its been almost a steady week with this , its getting annoying , i told my doc and they took blood , im wai
Avatar f tn At this point, I am told I have mild myositis, autonomic neuropathy and fibromyalgia. At the beginning of my journey (4 years ago), I had a very bad episode that we now know was a stroke. I was only 41 at the time. Anyways, the doctor feels I may have had a touch of vasculitis at that time that attacked a blood vessel causing a blockage, thus resulting in the stroke. So having explained that, I had an EMG two weeks ago.
1452335 tn?1286275218 But stroke she is having recently. Stroke too is very mild. If some-body can high-light. My wife is having left caratid artery completely blocked. Since when can not be ascertained.
Avatar m tn in 2011 still experiencing dizziness and vertigo (mild). In February 2012 had a small ischemic stroke.(paralysis for 20 min. no lasting effects) In ER miss diagnosis, CT scan was only taken, showing a nasal infection. I pushed for an MRI, 2 months later, results showed the stroke and the resulting tests showed a low EF of 35 to 45%. The cardiologist wants to start me on beta blockers. Now 2 weeks later I have not yet taken any meds. until I have a second opinion, scheduled in 8 more days.
1133274 tn?1260361928 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... I was very thankful to God since I have two small girls I need to take good care for and I can´t do my obligations if I can´t move my left side....
Avatar n tn Aspirin also helps prevent a second or recurrent stroke and, as with heart attacks, lessens the damaging effects of a stroke that does occur.
Avatar f tn My husband just had a mild stroke 4 days ago. He is sleeping a lot. Should I keep waking him up or does his body need the sleep time to heal??
500374 tn?1210071413 I didn't have a brainstem stroke, but I did have a stroke and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? Also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.
Avatar f tn My mother-in-law had her gallbladder removed about 1 month ago. She is experiencing severe migraines, along with severe nausea, and the left side of her face has become numb, and droopy. The first thing we thought was a mild stroke, she was admitted into the hospital, after MRI'S, Cat-scans, countless bloodwork, and ultrasounds, stroke was ruled out. Now, her dx is vascular migraines.
Avatar f tn Is this type pain nornal after a stroke? What can I do about the pain and swelling. My leg feels cold and I can't stand for even my cat to rub on my leg. I also have RA is this making the stroke pain? I am so tired of this pain, I am losing it.
Avatar f tn Your cough could come from your medication you are taking,side effects. Look up what kind of side effects could come your medication or drug interaction. Lisonopril does it for me and my freind. Good luck.
