Mild stroke info

Common Questions and Answers about Mild stroke info


Avatar f tn There has been considerable research that shows one or more MTHFR mutations may play a role in cancer, stroke, heart problems, congenital defects, depression, IBS , miscarriages, migraines, chemical sensitivities, schizophrenia-like syndromes, bipolar disorder, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and more. MTHFR Gene testing. One of the least expensive places for this is 23andMe, which will send you back "raw data" which needs interpretation. No problem.
Avatar n tn I came across it today since once again I am having residual issues and was back online looking for info. Since the second cerebellar stroke a year ago I have had three small episodes. With the first episode I went in right away for a new MRI which showed nothing different, and no issues with small vessels. My stroke doctor says she thinks it is the old one 'acting up.
1452335 tn?1286278818 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 f tn I was misdiagnosed with a stroke and have been tested for Lyme, Lupus and blood clotting issues among other things. I recently had an LP and am waiting for the results. My neuro says that if it's positive I have mild MSThat wouldn't require DMD. I dont have any mobility issues and have only had 2 attacks since this all started 6 months ago. I have had some mild cognitive issues though and am wondering if it is MS, should I take DMD?
Avatar n tn new dry basal ganglia stroke in a very healthy 48 year old male. He has minimal symptoms, eg. facial droop with slight slurred speech, some slight difficulty writing and some slight difficulty finding the appropriate word at times. He complains of a foggy head - not thinking as clearly as before. A lot of fatigue but that has gotten much better with time. It has been 5 days since the onset. What are the chances of these symptoms resolving over time?
1213000 tn?1280466761 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 n tn Re Recovery Time, Thank you for posting this. My husband had a "mild" stroke on Dec 18, and we are still trying to figure out how to process all the changes that have occurred in our lives. We're not even sure what "mild" means for he had a stroke that left his entire left side affected (with little to no sensation), but his speech, mobility and brain functions seem relatively unimpaired.
Avatar n tn I am a 39y/o female and I just suffered my second stroke. Both were in the same area and affected the my right side. Most of the time I can not open my right eye completely, my right arm is extremely weak, and I drag my right leg when I walk(however I did just start using a cane to help). My neurologist thinks these are being brought on by migraines. I've never heard of this before---is this new research?
Avatar n tn I am a 38 year old female who suffered a mild stroke 3 weeks ago. I was approx 12 weeks pregnant at the time. I have not used birth control pills for almost 10 years. The doctors say it was a blod clot in the thalmus (sp?) region. My deficits are a blind spot in the left side of both eyes and a numb left arm. The doctors cannot tell me what brought on the stroke, although they say the pregnancy may have caused a hypercoaguble state.
Avatar m tn My Dad has been diagnosed with having delirium after a stroke. He is continuously restless and agitated, he is always pulling at the bedclothes or taking off his own clothes. Is there any treatment for delirium and is it reversible?
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been reading your posts, and my husband is currently on a trach, after his stroke 7 wks ago. Can you give me more info about what type of swallow test and trachea tests were done on him. My husband's right side is completely affected, and he too, can not really stick out his tongue when asked. Can your brother in law now stick out his tongue? My husband's stroke was also a bleed, deep in his brain. Thanks for any info you can supply. I am glad your brother in law is improving. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Has anybody heard of Namenda, an Alzheimers med, being prescribed for a post hemorrhagic stroke patient? Her neuro doc just precribed it in addition to Depakote ER, Paxil and Amitriptyline. So far, I haven't been able to find where Namenda has been approved for stroke patients or that it even helps short term memory deficits in stroke patients. Any side effects we need to be aware of?
Avatar m tn bronchitis) I have had several ECHO's and the results always read mild left concentric hypertrophic, systolic anterior movement of my mitral valve, moderate MR and LAE. The cardiologist that reads the echo says its related to my high blood pressure.. again, I do not have high blood pressure and no one seems to listen. The strange thing is that high blood pressure is never mentioned in my records, and every time they take it for my office visit it is always in the normal range.
Avatar m tn My wife currently is hospitalized due to an Ischemic Stroke. She is having what appear to be seizures. They happen at a frequency of about 2 - 3 per day. We requested an Extended EEG to see if the seizures would occur during the EEG monitoring. She had 2 back to back seizures "Events" that were recorded during the Extended EEG. The Neurologist said that the info from the EEG said that she was having Non Epileptic Seizures.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am 32 years old and sufferred a small stroke on August 7. I am doing pretty well except for some numbness in my left hand and SEVERE headaches. Has anyone ever experienced severe headaches after having a stroke? I was put back in the hospital earlier this week because the pain was so bad, and nothing I was taking was having any effect on it. Even in the hospital, I was on an IV of dilaudid and that only helped minimally.
Avatar n tn Hi Dawn, Like you I suffered a sudden and unexpected mild stroke in October 2000, followed by a couple of TIA's. I am a 34 year old female who has an unremarkable past medical history. So it was all a bit of a shock as I'm sure it was for you too! Initially I was put on aspirin and told they were not really sure what had happened as all initial tests were negative. I too was left worrying if this was possibly going to happen again in the future.
Avatar n tn In July after what I felt were relatively mild symptoms, a faster than normal heart rate ocassionally (90's), warmer than normal (thought maybe it was hot flashes)nothing major, I woke up one Saturday feeling disoriented, shakey, fast heart rate and ended up in the ER. There the heart rate was 280, ended up in atrial fibrilation which ended up in a small stroke (no memory lost, paralysis or anything) and was then diagnosed with Graves.
Avatar n tn pain killers do not resolve root cause of shoulder pain. Mild heat with steam pack helps to some extent. avoid to sleep on the affected shoulder for long hours. You may find more information on good luck.
Avatar n tn She has had a series of hemorrhagic strokes that have weakened her physically and given her dementia. She seems to bounce nearly back to where she was then another mild stroke and another cycle of recovery. She was recently placed in a nursing home and after her first stroke there, the staff sent her to the hospital, again. 3 hospital doctors told me they agreed w me that we shouldn't send her back to the hospital because they had no treatment options left.
Avatar n tn Hi I'm terribly upset. My dad has just had a stroke. He's 72 and is currently in hospital virtually asleep full time. We know that it is caused by a blood clot stemming from Atrial Fibrillation and it has affected his left side (No vision, left arm and leg) The doctor has painted a very bleak picture which was very devastating and right now at this moment it just seems that there is no hope. Can anyone re-assure me that if he survives there is some hope for quality of life.
Avatar n tn I have recently been released from the hospital with a mild enlargement of the LV and a 45% EF I suspect it was from my abuse of alcohol.. Im only 29 with great cholesterol but I have an unsteady heartbeat,PVCs. How freaked out should I be? The doc pretty much just handed me a Cardiomyopathy leaflet and kicked me out the door with a couple of prescriptions. I have heard Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy is reversible..
Avatar f tn The reason I ask is because it does sound like you might have mild hypochondria, to me. Mild. Best wishes in seeking answers. I wish you well.
Avatar n tn which I unable to define if it's a blood clot or tumor. Usually person with mild stroke should not drive cause he may get massive stroke anytime which will be in coma state. If you want more info about stroke: Anyway please call your family doctor about your doubt and watch out his diet closely. Take care and warmest regards...
Avatar f tn I was born with mild CP. The spacicity was in my legs and with the help of braces and therapy, I was able to walk "normal". I am now 38. I have always had almost no muscle on the left side of my body. If I was very tired, sometimed I would get a little limp,but that's all. Now, I have been having neuropathy, and most recently spacicity in arms and legs that becomes quite painful. Sometimes, I notice my fingers and toes sticking together.
Avatar m tn Tell me if you had that type of stroke for more info. There are a lot of other things that you can do to avoid having another stroke. Smoking is the top cause of it. I understand your desperation about having another stroke. I just read an article that said that 1 in 4 stroke survivors have post traumatic stress syndrome following their stroke, especially younger people who have had mild strokes. It's very understandable.
Avatar m tn I was 2 1/2 years past my firt stroke and working out 5 days a week. My second stroke was a total suprise to me & my doctor. By God's Grace I'm doing good. My question is does intense exercise put you at more risk?
Avatar f tn Just to confirm Sara, my stroke was not a bleed, it was a mild stroke, possibly caused by a clot from the diagnosed furred up carotid artery in my neck. My mri scans show white matter changes in the brain left hemisphere and i have been diagnosed as having cerebral vascular disease,hypertension, angina, diabetes type2, reflux, glaucoma, asthma, depression.
451975 tn?1372332199 My husband gave me an aspirin when he realized I couldn't respond to him and took me to the hospital 5 min. from our home. I was treated as a stroke patient and sent to the downtown Toronto Stroke Centre. Unfortunately, by the time I arrive by ambulance, (about 3 hrs. later), it was too late to administer the 'stroke buster' shot that was planned. After about 4 hours, slowly, I began to regain feeling in my left fingers and forearm.
