Avatar n tn What is the preferred optimal treatment for a 65 year old recovered stroke patient (only mild aphasia) diagnosed with Patent formanen ovale? Is it the use of the closure device or medication with blood thinners?
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 you should go to a neurologist or a primary doctor to have this evaluated. you may have been dehydrated (and your blood pressure was too low for you). why have you lost so much weight? are you exercising too much or on a special restrictive diet? do you get enough sleep? there is a good chance that this was a mild faint spell rather than a mini-stroke but you won't know until you have a full evaluation.

Avatar m tn I got a mild stroke about 15 months ago and currently I only sweat on my right side of my body, face and head. My stroke affected my left side of the body and ceratin part of my body still feeling numbness especially on the left hand side. Is there any treatment I can seek.
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 Hi Toria , It may not be a mild stroke since a stroke can be diagnosed by an MRI and a stroke has associated nervous system symptoms like vertigo , slurred speech , double vision and others .There are various other causes of muscle weakness on one side of the body . They are muscle stimulation disorders , peripheral nerve disorders , nerve impingement in the spine . Did you go for an MRI spine with contrast ?
Avatar n tn mild right ovary pain - no need for treatment - emotional, not well, mild hip pain, back to Lisa Dabbs (cried in appt)
Avatar n tn However, when she woke up on Monday and had no use of it, and her leg started feeling very heavy she went to the hospital. They said she had a mild stroke. She had no other symptoms and the recovery was amazing. They were all amazed. By Monday night she could lift her arm over her head, although it still felt very heavy and her fingers wouldn't do exactly what she wanted them to do. Her leg was completely better. It felt as though nothing had ever happened.
Avatar m tn s advice and medicines but one month ago she had a mild paralysis attach but it did not effect her in the sense of paralysis but she is losing her wisdom as she troubles to answer the question, she avoids to talk as she finds trouble in finding words, and she cannot walk without support of some other person, we tool her to the dr, in MRI report it came "Mild Hydrocephalous- Lacunar Infarcts", Dr said that in this disease some of the cells of brain go dead and some of the organs leave
Avatar n tn After an Ecocardiogram the result was mild tricuspid regurgitation and Physiological pulmonic regurgitation. Is this dangerous? or life threathening? or can it cause stroke? I would like more information on the matter.
Avatar n tn BTW,any effective treatment for the mild cortical atrophy problem. I do like to drink wine everyday and have for many years. Could that contribute?
1346447 tn?1327862572 She could not stand. After treatment for stroke she now stands on the leg.She is 70 years old. She had left carotid artery completely blocked for long time. This was never noticed. Now in additio we observed that her short term memory is getting deterioted.In the past twenty years slowly it is observed that her blood supply to brain was getting reduced. This process was stabilised .But now we find that memory loss is occuring.At present she is practically all the time in the bed lying.
Avatar m tn I had a mild stroke in the mid brain near the pons a year ago. Recently I had an extensive MRI/MRA done with contrast. The findings show a mild irregularity of the basilar artery. Also the left vertebral artery is hypoplastic. Both M1 segments are slightly extended throughout their course. I currently take 75mg of Plavix daily. What is the meaning of this, the treatment and prognosis?
