Avatar n tn If there are neurological symptoms persisting for more than 24 hours, it is classified as a cerebrovascular accident, or stroke. You have to be alert and followup your doctor regularly,take youe medicines control your cholesterol and blood pressure levels, as weakness of your muscles may precipitate a stoke.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.
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 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 n tn s important that you know the possible symptoms of a stroke after her having one 2 years ago. Those having had an eschemic stroke have a 25% chance of having another one within the next 5 years. The longer you wait, the more risk you put your mother in. If she did have a stroke then she may need something like coumadin and also possibly other treatments.

Avatar n tn I recently had a mild stroke in the left hemisphere of my brain. About two weeks later I started having a problem with my left arm and hand falling asleep. At first this was just an annoyance however, the tingling sensation has been happening more often and with more intensity. Could this problem be caused by the stroke? Will it eventually go away? Can I do anything to help eliminate this problem? Could someone explain why this is happening?

Avatar n tn I had a mild stroke 2 yrs. ago and discovered that I was diabetic. During a Dr visit soon after, I told my Dr that I was worried about the next one now that my body knows how to have a stroke. He said that they were treating me to prevent that next one from happening but said that he was worried about ''something' disease' (another word + the word 'disease') and I can't remember what he said the name was.
Avatar n tn i don't believe you are having pre stroke symptoms.. because i suffered from more severe than your symptoms and by the grace of God i have never got any stroke ..nor TIA .. anyways since i am not a doctor.. i await what doctors on the forum has to say about it.
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 f tn But, even if you do have diagnosed migraine with stroke-like symptoms, if you ever show any NEW stroke symptoms then it is still important to seek immediate medical attention regardless of previous diagnosis, just like the last note on whisperwolf's list says.
Avatar f tn I had a stroke also on the left side of basal ganglia. My symptoms have been mild overall. There was a little droop of my mouth, and since then I have experienced a mild lisp --a gets a little harder to speak when I am tired. I am experiencing a mild sense of lack of motivation..and perhaps a little depression..and tiredness.. Overall I think I am doing quite well for experiencing a stroke. I hope to recover completely.. Does anyone have advice for rehabilitation? Exercises for speech..
Avatar f tn ll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
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.
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+.
2175879 tn?1338355028 Doc, The military doctors are now thinking that it was a mild stroke and not a TIA because although some of my symptoms have improved, but I still have weakness on my left side and lightheadeness. I am now going to neurology on friday and they are also sending me to get an ultrasound on my Carotid artery.
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 f tn Hi there, From what i understand which isn't much, the location of your lesion is one of the more common locations for ischemia. 'If' it was stroke related i'd be thinking because of it's size, it would be more along the line of a transient ischemic attack (TIA).
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 m tn If symptom was just limited to facial area I would suspect mild stroke or pre-stroke. However since you are experiencing lower extremity as well as midline back I tend to agree that an MS diagnosis should be pursued. They have discovered that yeast in brain can cause onset of MS. Total elimination of refined sugar should be an immediate action. I knew someone who had same symptoms and eventually was diagnosed with MS and placed on no refined sugar as well as no yeast producing foods.
Avatar f tn Alex- Hi-- The neurologist I saw was recommended by a friend as a second choice- the first choice doctor - there was a 2 month wait as opposed to the 5 week wait I had. I'm not sure what he specializes in, but he did tell me it was possible I had a hemiplegic migraine- and he's sending me to a stroke center because he says he's not sure how else to help me since my symptoms are lingering - numbness, etc.-- but no physical sign of stroke.
