Avatar f tn My mother is 78 years old and suffered a mild stroke about a year ago, which resulted in some memory loss and no peripheral vision on her left side. She does not remember recipes, some vacations taken and some of her friends names. Currently she seems to have gotten worse with her memory. She does not remember if she has eaten, or if I have stopped by to see her during the week.

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 n tn A friend of ours just had a stroke involving the brainstem. We are trying to decipher what our friend's doctor is telling her regarding her husband's current state, prognosis, etc. Can you tell us the functions of the pons, mid-brain and medulla? Which is the area just above the spinal cord? Her husband's stroke injury was just above the c-1 vertibre. He is currently on a respirator and is in a coma.
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 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.
