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".
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 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.

2175879 tn?1338355028 If there are residual effects beyond 24 hours the condition is classified as a stroke. Your symptoms could or could not be related to stroke etiology. Other possibilities that could account for symptoms include nutrient/ micronutrient deficiencies, stress, hormonal/ endocrine issues etc. I would suggest considering an initial evaluation by a primary care physician and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.

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.

Avatar f tn What is causing chronic, severe itching since my father's stroke? --ischemic stroke, right side brain, left side paralysis. My 80 yr old father had a stroke 4 months ago. About 1-1/2 months ago he started experiencing mild itching on his legs and has now become chronic all over his body. Most of his meds have rash and itching side effects. Aggrenox was just changed to Plavix, but the itching has not stopped. 325mg of aspirin is also a future consideration as a blood thinner.
368646 tn?1208393887 ago I (F,37) had a hemorrhagic stroke due to burst cavernous hemgioma with subsequent brain surgery to remove it. It was a mild stroke, but I still have many deficits (double-vision, ataxia, etc). Aftertrying many drugs and therapies, my Neurologist is at a loss.

She precibed it for 14 days.

Avatar m tn One of things to do, is to have office mates and family members aware of the warning signs that you have had a stroke, because if you get to the hospital quickly, you can usually stop most of the bad effects of the stroke. But often when someone has a stroke, they have no idea about it. I am very tuned in to my body, but waking up in paralysis and not being able to speak, I didn't have a clue that anything was wrong with me. Ones' judgment can be affected by the stroke.
1651434 tn?1301657278 Do you suffer any permanent damage anywhere from the stroke, was it a mild stroke? You may also want to peruse the Maternity Forums here, I am most positive there is one for 35+.
Avatar f tn That time her bllod sugar was 224.That time they gave her insuline as well. Is it stroke or any ather condition? Before that she was fine walks around no problem climbing staircase. Is any body know what is this?
Avatar n tn I am a 52 yr. old female and have CM's and have had a mild stroke from a CM. It's good that you went to the ER and they treated you like a stroke victim, I believe they did the right thing at the hospital in treating you. It's hard to tell the difference between a CM and stroke. They can have the same symptoms. I do not smoke, have never been on Valtrex and have had a tubal. Don't know how shingles would come into play, that would be for a dr. to say.
Avatar m tn About 5yrs.ago i had an accident where i was riding some trails and hit a rock and flew over my handlebars and hit a tree.

Also i had a mild stroke in 2006 i have seen a lot of meds.
Avatar m tn I've been smoking spice for about 3 months now and I just barely started to get a mild headache that's lasted about 2 weeks. I stopped smoking spice 3 days ago but the headache hasn't gone away. Can smoking the chemical jwh-018 give me a brain tumor?

Avatar f tn My mother in law had a stroke back at the beginning of March. She has severe arthritis in one knee in particular and has difficulty rehabbing because the knee fills with blood due to the arthritis and she cannot get to the point of standing to do the therapy. The coumadin has left her depressed, dizzy, cold and overall loss of appetite. She wants to recover but this drug is very difficult. It comes to the point of quality of life...
Avatar f tn I had a mild stroke two months ago and was recovering nicely, very few deficits. Two months later I am getting lightheaded and dizzy all day. This is two days now. What's up?
