Avatar f tn However, the symptoms you wrote about could be a diabetic reaction, a mild stroke, a pinched nerve, or any number of health related issues that only a doctor would know what to do. That's where a checkup would benefit him the most. Without insurance, I know its hard on the old pocket book because most doctors will only accept non-insured patients unless payed up front, and they're not cheap. But don't have false hopes.
Avatar n tn I also have a general question on the Eye problem - was that actually a stroke? The eye Dr has it listed as one but I'm wondering if it was one of those TIAs that I'm reading about with the artery problem. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Avatar n tn I have CPS as a result of a mild stroke last year. There is nothing that will ever help the pain of CPS - My nerologist referred me to a pain management clinic and the doctor I have is wonderful. He has been working with me on a combination of meds to help "relieve" the pain. I have been taking Neurontin since the stroke, and thought at one time it wasn't doing anything to help until I told the doctor and he slowly decreased my dosage.

Avatar n tn While it IS true that hypotension can lead to confusion and sometimes contribute to falls in the elderly population, the damage to the vessels and the potential for stroke would be of primary and overwhelming concern. Bood pressure is rarely held at a static level--it rises and falls, sometimes dramatically. If a persons' baseline is already 159/85, a sudden rise could easily cause a stroke in an elderly person.

Avatar m tn First of all, keep in mind that I am unable to diagnose you because I am unable to examine you, this forum is for educational purposes. The story and symptoms that you describe are complex and there is much data that I do not have. I was most concerned about myasthenia gravis(MG) from the story you described.
Avatar n tn The blood work shows that I have the presence of anticardiolipin antibodies and elevated glycoproteins. The ecg notes short P-R intervals and shows mild pre-excitation was present. The echocardiogram shows minimal posterior buckling of the anterior mitral leaflet with mild mitral regurgitation and trace tricuspid regurgitation. My doctor told me I am at a higher risk for stroke or heart attack and advised me to take one baby aspirin a day.

Avatar n tn The numbness you mention may be a sign of a small stroke involving the very small, deep penetrating arteries of the brain. These types of stroke, also called lacunar strokes (from the Latin root lacuna meaning “empty space”), may be so small that they are not always apparent on an MRI. In your mother’s case, it sounds like her symptoms are purely sensory, perhaps suggesting a small “lacune” in the thalamus, which is the relay center for the brain.

Avatar m tn Sounds like a possible seizure to me also and there are different types of seizures and causes. Possibly a mild stroke? I would think complete blood work and possibly X-rays should be done. TBD would not be out of the rhelm of possibilities.
Avatar n tn (a decision I made with little input from my doctor) Does anyone know if there are studies regarding relative effectiveness of 81mg vs. 325 mg? I have had one mild stroke and one TIA so I am really running scared now. I am losing faith in my doctors because they never seem to look at you as a whole body; they seem capable of only viewing you from the standpoint of their own specialty.
