You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
Avatar n tn if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.

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 n tn my father had a mild stroke last dec.12,2007, how many months he would take to live a normal life? mild stroke can cure? and it will return to a normallife?
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 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.
2175879 tn?1338355028 It was determined today by another doctor that I had a mild stroke, not a TIA. That explains atleast for me, why although my symptoms have improved but not gone away like a TIA is expected to. Reading all these questions on TIA sure helped me deal with this, but I think that there are other people that have had strokes and been labled as TIA's because, just like me, the stroke fixed itself, but has left its footprint.

Avatar f tn in young people with stroke, even if they have other risk factors for stroke (such as diabetes). This is important because the treatment to prevent further stroke may differ. This can be tested mainly with blood tests. If an inlammatory cause (what is termed a vasculitis) is suspected, then a spinal tap would be needed, but if your blood tests and CTA do not suggest a vasculitis, this would be less likely.
Avatar n tn I went to my family doctor who immediately suspected that I had had a stroke and sent me to a neurologist. He suspected that I had a mild stroke due to a blood clot which formed because of the birth control pills I was on. I went off the pills and he said the numbness would fade and call him if the frequency of the migraines increased. They increased to 1-2 a week and he put me on Limbitrol.
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 n tn Agree to test cholesteral based on history of stroke symptoms
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 m tn The study included 40 healthy men, between the ages of 55 and 70, who had no heart disease risk factors. Ten of the men had never exercised for more than two hours a week. The remaining 30 had exercised for at least seven hours a week for more than five years, either beginning before age 30 or after age 40. Their regular exercise involved either cycling or running.
Avatar n tn It would also be an unnecessary risk if the stroke is too mild, or rapidly improving, or if there is diagnostic uncertainty about the event. The benefit of IV tPA is increasing modestly the number of patients that will eventually have a good outcome. Approximately a six percent risk of a symptomatic brain hemorrhage is incurred when tPA is used, but this is acceptable because it is offset by the benefit. The risk - benefit equation is less favorable in the elderly.
Avatar n tn s concern. With your risk factors for stroke and the additional symptoms of face numbness, I would be reluctant to just chalking this up to amiodarone. Talk to your doctor about the possible need for an MRI. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn I am more concerned about the possible risk of a recurrent stroke more than cognitive symptoms that you experience (those are likely to improve). Depending upon the the exact vascular pathology you have, different treatments may be appropriate to significantly reduce the risk of a recurrent stroke. It is not too late to get a second comprehensive opinion. I strongly recommend that you see Dr. Anthony Furlan, Dr. Cathy Sila, or Dr. Judith Hinchey at the Cleveland Clinic.
