Mini stroke after care

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke after care


Avatar n tn But I am trying to find out what kind of Dr I need to go to now or even if they can tell if it was a stroke 6 weeks after. I still have the stutter and forgetfullness. I also normally have low BP like 120/60 pulse rate normally around 70. This day my BP was 160/102 amd pulse was 150-170. I need help too if you come up with anything.
2173122 tn?1337367057 I am a diabetic (type 2) and already watch my weight and take Metformin but only became diabetic a year ago. Now this TIA stroke. I am not a health care professional. Hopefully we will have some others with more experience comment on this post. I am still recovering from it but everything I have read says I should have already recovered from it but after 5 days now, I'm just starting to get my balance back and strength in my left side, but it seems to come and go.

Avatar f tn Sorry to be a downer today, I was soing so well first couple of months after the stroke, stroke, but I kno through it all i've been blessed. I cry more than usual, an I know its the devil, and i'm fighting but at times I feel like I don't have any more fight in me.
Avatar n tn It is nonsense that incontinence after a stroke is forever. There is more nonsense going on about how to care for the stroke damaged elderly than I can believe. So never give up hope.
Avatar f tn The EKG, CT-Scan and blood work all came back normal and later during the week, so did the ultrasound on my neck arteries and the echo on my heart. My internist said it could be a mini-stroke but the symptoms persist a week later, with complete numbness of the tongue and lips. He told me it might be a side effect of my anti-depressant, Pristiq, and has taken the dose down from 100mg to 50mg. I am to report in next week to let him know what my symptoms are doing.
Avatar n tn I had a stroke when I was 29...2 weeks after I gave birth to my first child. I had a bilateral carotid dissection. I am now 33 and am thinking about having another child, but none of my doctors know for sure why I had a stroke in the first place. Both my ob and neurologist think that I should be fine, but they really have never seen this before. I keep looking for other opinions....and suggestions? Anyone out there that had a baby after a stroke?
Avatar n tn I too had a stroke when I was 29...2 weeks after I gave birth to my son...That was 4 1/2 years ago. I have been fine ever since,even though my corotid arteries are still occluded. I had a bilateral corotid dissection. I would also like to have more kids and my doctors THINK it should be ok, but there are no guarantees!!
Avatar n tn Hi there! I too am a young stroke survivor with left side weakness. The arm and hand are very frustrating, aren't they? Thankfully,I had my 2 daughters before my stroke, but my youngest was only 13 months when it happened. It took awhile for her to get used to me, but with some practice I eventually was able to change diapers, bathe the girls, and now 2 1/2 years later with some more progress under my belt, I can carry my 3 year-old to bed or short distances if I need to.
Avatar n tn Dr Santos. I am a 61 year old with high cholesterol. I had a terrible bout of vertigo one morning and then for about a month after was sick as a dog. My eyes hurt I had headaches. I was dizzy and my head felt like it was surging. I felt like I was walking sideways. I have a hard time finding words when I feel dizzy. Like i am in a fog. had an MRI that said acute lacunar infarct on my right thalmus.
Avatar n tn Just diagnosed with complicated migraine, told the oxygen deprivation was not important. Residual symptoms - tremors, weakness, confusion, exhaustion, all psychological. Ain't medicine cool? Stay away from those darn first-day-in-the-hospital Dr.s!
Avatar f tn I told him I could be his friend, but he said he has feelings for me and liked me too much to be just friends, and that i'd distract his recovery. Anyway I just wanted to know if a mini stroke or stroke could cause hydrocephalus? He had been saying he felt dizzy, was vomiting, lost weight, headaches, felt as though he was on a boat and had sea sickness, no energy, sleeping a lot, couldn't concentrate, his vision was odd and I'm sure theres other things he told me.
Avatar n tn I've read this is normal but it has been 3 weeks and he seems to be sleeping more now than he did after the first few days of the stroke. They are moving him into the nursing care portion of the hospital. To me, the only way he can get better is if he can stay awake and respond to therapy. Is it normal to be sleeping for this long after a stroke? Shouldn't he be getting more energy each day?
500374 tn?1210075013 I didn't have a brainstem stroke, but I did have a stroke and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? Also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.
Avatar n tn I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a stroke in the cerebellum and signs of a mini stroke that they classified as 'old'. I fortunately did not have ongoing loss of speech, or weakness in limbs etc...but have suffered from weird dizziness and electric shock feelings in my head. They seem to get better - but then get wrose again....Dr's are saying it is maybe anxiety --but is not. I have had anxiety before and these are different.
Avatar n tn Next day visited my GP who said it was mini stroke. The treating at Hospital told me that he received my MRI test report which indicated that my blindness was due to accummulated wide spread of white matter at back of my brain which blocked my vision which had resulted in my blindness.So please I would like to know whether my blindness was caused "white matter at back of my brain which blocked my vision" or due to other eye problems I had prior to MRI?
Avatar n tn As an update to my post - fyi - after seeing a stroke specialist, my husband is now on Cardizem (Dialtiazem ER) and these episodes are being controlled - he can still feel them starting for a few seconds but then they seem to shut down - possible vacular spasms or something similar is what has been diagnosed - no definitive test is available to be sure. We are blessed to have found a way to control these to some degree - never give up trying.
Avatar m tn She IS still on Lamictal, taken twice a day, and Plavix with aspirin, etc. So I'm just not sure if she had a mini-stroke or another seizure. So that's my question - Did she have a mini-stroke or a seizure (today)? Any relevant info is greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Judging from your constant help at the hospital, they probably think that you are going to take care of him. Sorry to be so blunt, but you put it all out there. Take care of yourself.
Avatar m tn I told the doctor and he said that sometimes that happened with allergic reactions. After that I noticed that I was gaining fluid and my shirts were tight around my neck . I also had a dull pain in the back of my head were I had felt the pain the night I was in causality. I attended an immunologist approximately 3 months after the incident and complained to him about my headache.
Avatar n tn 31/F. Had classic symptoms of stroke, when I was taken to the ER I was told I was having a strokeby nuerologist. Right side of my body was paralyzed, and left side of face was affected. CT w/out contrast,MRI,EEG all came back negative. When reading over nuerologist notes from ER he stated that Spasticity was observed also.
Avatar n tn He went to urgent care again, where they said it could have been a mini-stroke, but to go to the er, if it gets worse. The next day, he woke up feeling the same sensation, only now in his leg as well. He went to the er where it got worse to where it was very painful and his chest was in pain. He ended up having to be admitted to the hospital where he seems to be getting worse.
Avatar f tn My mother, who is 57 and takes good care of her health, suffered a stroke two days ago and is in the hospital as we speak. The stroke occured in her brain stem and the top/side of her head. Through an MRI and a certain procedure I forget the name of, the doctors were able to determine the reason for the stroke on the top/side of her head, which was blockage, i believe, of the vein.
Avatar n tn Hi - unfortunately, the baby did not have a heartbeat when they checked 8 days after the stroke. They performed a D+C. I have a few follow-up questions for you: Would a stressful month at work lead to hypertension? You asked if my stroke was ischemic and it was. I have HSV-8 and had an outbreak 2 weeks after the stroke. Would Moya Moya have shown up on an MRI? Also, could eating a lot of foods containing Vitamin K have triggered hypercoagulation? Thank you for your help!
