Avatar n tn TIA by definition should not have any residual effects beyond 24 hours. Your symptoms could or could not be related to stroke etiology and could represent peripheral neurological/ muscular issues. 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. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn They ran tests, blood work and CT scan. They said he did not have another stroke that it was Residual Side Effects from his stroke in 1998. I have never heard of this. Does anyone have an experience with this?
Avatar f tn Is it possible to have risidual side effects from this type of stroke? I don't understand why it is taking so long for me to regain my strength. Are there others out there with anything similar?
Avatar n tn All medications have potential for some type of side effects, so changing to something else will not gaurantee that a different medication would not have side effects of it's own that could be difficult. In response to the question of other options, there has been some reports regarding a medication Arimedex, that has been studied in the adjuvant setting for post-menopausal women.

Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
29837 tn?1414538248 I ask this because overall, I don't feel much, but this morning I woke up with a headache, which is very rare for me. I believe one of the side effects can be a headache. I also notice my hands slightly shaking since starting Harvoni. Anyone experience this? Just curious as to what others are going through. I know this is a new type of treatment, but it would be helpful and put people at ease if others are experiencing the same effects.
Avatar n tn I experienced the side effects I was told could happen, worse cramps and heavier bleeding. I am fine with these because my choice for birth control is very limited because I get blood clots and cannot take the pill. However, I am wondering if anyone has experienced a decrease in thier sex drive becasue of it. I am only 29 years old, married to a very wonderful and attractive man, but honestly I could care less about sex.

Avatar m tn He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar n tn I have a question about the drug Haldol. My 77 year old mother had a mild stroke that left her left side affected. While in the CCU unit in the hospital, she became restlest, 5mg injections where issued on 3 seperate occasions within 36 hours . the last after she was moved into a private room out of CCU. 10 hours after the last injection she fell into a deep sleep (Coma Like) state. CT scans done after this found this was not caused from another stroke.
Avatar n tn Plus a constant headache, most of the time the headaches were mild. I had mild eye ache but only occasionally. These side effects lasted about 6 months. Hope you are doing well. Sorry again about not getting back to you sooner.
Avatar f tn This is the first time I ever took a contraceptive pill. I am really worried about the side effects and I was wondering if I can still take my other cold&cough medicines as I take regularly? And I also heard that there might be some changes in my periods. Is that true? Could you please tell me the long term effects.Thank you. Help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I went on xanas for a few days trying to get off of Tramadol for my back pain. I thought I was going to die from the side effects of xanax, I felt faint, no appetite general sick feeling and so forth. It is helpful to some and not for others. Glad to hear your heart is ok and no arhythmia. Have you tried biofeedback? It really helped me with the anxiety and fear of getting reinjured from my back problem.
Avatar n tn I am just wondering can side effects appear after a year of none. I am starting to taper off slowly after visiting my Dr. Most seem to think that side effects appear right away, not a year later. I have lost 12 pounds recently in less than a month and even though I have stopped the weight loss, am wondering if that could have an effect on the toprol strength. I have been told it could also be anxiety, but I am not prone to that and have never ever had this before.
Avatar n tn I was in my 2nd, 3rd and 4th semester of lawschool then-I know this now because I'm still there, hardly any memory of it though. The side effects were brutal, my thick waist legnth hair nearly all fell out or broke off, I cried through my classes, wept with fatigue and depression, had numerous experiences where I'd realize I had know idea where I was or how I got there--more crying then. And I don't even want to think about the excruitating headaches.
Avatar n tn I've never touched them again since, but the side effects have still remained. Even if they ARE side-effects.. which is what I'm truly wondering.
Avatar f tn I've been online reading page after page after page about people who have taken this and the side effects at this dosage that they are reporting are scaring me to tears. Everything from hair thinning to huge weight gains (I'm somewhat overweight, so this is the last thing I need), sleeplessness, extreme exhaustion, depression, sweating, zero libido, worsened a-fib - it just goes on and on. Honestly, I'm so upset and frightened.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar n tn i have been taking effexor for about four years and i find the drug has made me a new person,but if i miss a dose i have severe feels like i am living in hell.but when i get back on track i feel great.since i started taking these meds, i have put on 40 pounds and i eat very little.and if i try to wean my self down to a lower dose the side effects start all over doctor told me i will probably be on this for the rest of my life.
Avatar n tn They did a MRI on his brain which showed he had a mild stroke, which effects the part of his brain that controls balance. He has not had his follow-up appt. with the 2nd neurologist, but he said it probably occured during surgery. Why wouldn't the heart specialist suspect a stroke? What kind of therapy, if any may help him? Or medications? He also has experienced chest pain, since July. What kind of test would help in finding out where the pain is coming from?
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 --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. He was given Ativan 0.5mg two days ago to stop the itching.
