Mild stroke symptoms risk

Common Questions and Answers about Mild stroke symptoms risk


Avatar n tn Do these syptomns sound like she whould have a CAT to prove or disprove any possibilty of a Mild Stroke due to heavy Wine and Smoking? Since she is hospitalized presently recovering form her broken hip, should they also test for a stroke?
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 The neurologist thinks these headaches are migraines and not related to the stroke, but he also says that the headache symptoms she describes are not typical in migraines. Could her headaches and cerebellum stroke be related also? I'm concerned that the doctor is being too quick to assume the stroke occured before birth when he also says that an MRI can NOT show the age of a stroke.
Avatar n tn regardless of his risk, let's say high risk (unprotected sex during Dec2006) 2 weeks after symptoms, or 3 weeks, gernerlly people will have enough antibody , right? Thanks.
1896811 tn?1323981959 We differ a bit in regards to what brough us to the doctor - I had stroke like symptoms. After initial dx I went for a 2nd opinion to make me feel more confident. My doc suggested it, but I already had it lined up I was so sure he was wrong. Maybe that is something that would help put your mind at ease too...Just a thought.
Avatar f tn My dad has recently (within the last week) had a mild stroke. He is only 48 and reasonably healthy so it came has a huge shock. The stroke was a clot to the left side of his brain. His memory has not been affected and his doctors are very impressed with the progress of his recovery in the short time since the stroke. They believe after all of his rehabilitation he should be back to 100% independance. The outlook is good in that respect even though at the moment its all still very saddening.
Avatar n tn I have BAM (Basilar Artery Migraine) with Aura. The aura is stroke like symptoms. I have had 27 full-blown episodes that render me unable to talk, walk, or control limbs on the right side. I have researched this to the hilt. If you will e-mail me at: ***@****, I will share my real experiences.
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 To all, actually. Wow! What a relief to read that so many other stroke victims have exactly the same symptoms as my 93-year-old mother since her stroke almost 4 weeks ago. Glad to hear that these phenomena seem to diminish with time. She takes Dilantin to prevent seizures, Resperadol (sp?), and at night, if needed, another sedative for these issues. A bladder infection and then a rash from the antibiotic also added to her considerable discomfort and agitation.
Avatar n tn I'm a 76 year old lady who recently spent a week in the hospital because of episodes of TIA. After a MRI a CT scan, EEG, and ECG, they told me I had a mild stroke. While in the hospital they put me in heparin drip to thin my blood to start with, then they put me on plavix. I have episodes of bad sharp pain around my left temple coming down sometimes to may face, and from time to time especially after i take my BP meds with the plavix I get nauseated and light headed.
Avatar n tn Nuerologist strongly recommended closure, due to stroke risk. Cardiologist also strongly recommended closure. Said he didn't think I could have transcather closure because balloons migrate. Both of these doctors sent me to a cardia surgeon who said he wouldn't do surgey unless I had a stroke first. Felt surgery was too high risk, MRI didn't show infaract, but he said emboli was probaly crossing through the hole in my heart.Transcathter not done in Hawaii yet. I could come to Cleveland.

Not the extreme that I couldn't walk or function, but enough to disturb me greatly.
Avatar n tn My 88 year old mother had an angiogram (tube placed through her groin) 10 days ago, due to narrowing of the arteries to the heart. Her GP seems to think this may have caused a mild stroke - is this possible? To me she has no outward stroke symptoms although she cannot remember everything as she did before -- she is nowhere near as 'alert' (doing crosswords etc) and says her head feels like it is full of 'cotton wool'. Is this possible and is there any treatment for this type of stroke?
Avatar n tn Discuss with your physicians the use of anticoagulation therapy and further evaluation. The side effects of anticoagulation therapy has to be weighed against the future risk of stroke incidence. Meanwhile, stay calm and relax.Unnecessary worryimg would not help. Just keep a close follow up with your physician. I hope this helps. Keep us posted regarding your progress.
Avatar f tn Please help me understand if this extreme anxiety changing weather diet is allowing my symptoms ti disappear. Are symptoms due to ARS? Having hsv 1 postive can that increase the possibility of positive hiv results in future? How much should I be worried with HSV infection and its consequences on my life now in future? I know too many questions and complicated post. Please help me out this time.
Avatar m tn At age 26 I was diagnosed with Atrial fibrilation. I have very mild symptoms. RIght when they found it they put me on the full dose of asprin and another medication. The asprin is causing problems because I am a trick rider! It is hard to avoid bruising when trick riding! I feel I need to get another opinion to make sure I really have afib as young as I am! My doctor was surprized to find that diagnosis. I don't want to have give up my dream of trick riding!
Avatar f tn The metabolism of aspartame in the human body and the proposed toxicities from its metabolic components have concerned a lot of people and have been the emphasis of many post-marketing surveillance studies. Aspartame is metabolized by digestive enzymes and peptides to three common dietary components: amino acids, aspartic acid, and phenylalanine. Minute amounts of methanol can also be detected.
Avatar n tn Sorry to hear about your symptoms. From your description, it doesn't sound like the symptoms are from parkinson's nor do they appear to be characteristic of MS, although it could still be a possibility. A formal neurological exam that shows objective findings consistent with weakness or sensory changes as well as any other clinical deficit would help point towards an appropriate diagnostic workup.
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 n tn 1 year Your excess risk of coronary heart disease has dropped to less than half that of a smoker. 5 to 15 years Your risk of stroke has declined to that of a non-smoker. 10 years Your risk of death from lung cancer has declined by almost half if you were an average smoker (one pack per day). Your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat and esophagus has now decreased. 15 years Your risk of coronary heart disease is now that of a person who has never smoked.
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.
1056589 tn?1273750702 There definatly seems to be a connection especially with autoimmune disease. For instance family history of Thyriod disease increases the risk of MS..etc.... Mom- Dystolic dysfuntion (heart disease), Porphyria on her side of family.

Avatar m tn Were you drinking, eating or doing some activity that you normally do not do? Any medical history? Taking any medications? It is difficult to say what exactly you experienced; you should have went to the ER that night. Lastly, I would follow up with your PCP/Family Physician and request an MRI of your brain/head WITH contrast asap.
Avatar n tn By the way you can have MS without a positive LP although it is not common. I do not have any stroke risk factors but I do have factor 5 leiden. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I am needing any feedback, as to whether anyone else seems to have or have had recurring stroke like symptoms, 3years after a small stroke. 8years ago, att 39 yrs old I was a senior manager at a large uk ftse company, I had a massive nervous breakdown. This was due to 20years of 15hour day 6days a weeks workaholic lifestyle, in business management and also running my own parttime business as well as working for private and public companies.
451975 tn?1372332199 I just went to the hospital on Easter with Stroke like symptoms and was treated as such. I am 35 years old. They did all the normal tests MRI, MRA, and tons of blood work. Although the CT scan showed something that they thought may have been a mini stroke the other tests ruled it out and they diagnosed me with a silent or atypical migraine. I had all symptoms of a stroke. The numbness, tingling, drooping of the eyes and mouth on one side, no facial expressions and I could hardly talk.
147426 tn?1317269232 WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OLD MRI's AND THE NEW 3T MRI? I came across a good back-to-back comparision of the 1.5T MRI versus the 3T MRI on MS patients with known multiple brain lesions without enhancement. They did an MRI using the MS protocol of thin slices. The neuroradiologists reading the films were not told which machine they werE done on. The 3T machine consistently picked up more lesions - on average 25% more.
