Mini stroke after effects

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke after effects


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.
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.
6359965 tn?1393492236 I had a mini stroke behind my right eye now I have a headache all the time is this normal?I had a carotid endarterectomy on the right side of my neck dec 20th 2013 ,Feb 18 2014 started having problems with my right eye.I went to the eye dr and he sent me to my dr that did the carotid endarterectomy and he said it was a mini stroke.I have like a gray fog over my eye all the time and like northern lights in the corner.My head hurts bad sometimes and I get nauseated.
Avatar n tn Dilantin is not the worst medication on the planet, but it does reduce mental acuity. Siezures after a stroke are terrifying, but you have to think about the cause of the siezure. This is hard to do, even for an experienced neurologist. Contact someone experienced with epilepsy.
Avatar n tn Last January, 2006, I had a mini stroke. I was 36 years old. I recovered quickly and there has been no side effects. I was taking birth control pills and so the dr.'s say that must be the cause. They can find no other reason for it. I now take 1 aspirin daily. I have 1 son who is 3 and we are wondering about another pregnancy. I'm terrified! My neurologist and obgyn say it would be low risk for another mini stroke. I feel I was probably "no risk" this time last year but it happened.
378112 tn?1199897215 Not knowing any better I went to a regular eye dr. He sent me to specialist after specialist to find papilledema and hemorrhaging in there. After a CT scan they ruled out a tumor and told me it was pseudotumor cerebri. They started me on diamox and topamax, eyes cleared up but headaches never went away. In fact, they got worse. All they did was give me pain pills to ease them.
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 m tn My blood pressure is good, cholesterol is very good. not diabetic but I was diagnosed as having a mini stroke Tia caused by having a migraine headache.My left side dropped with tingling and numbness, burr vision and slurred speech. My question is after all the years that has passed what was so different about this migraine that was so different?
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 f tn Thank you for responding to my question. I talked with another doctor on Justanswer and apparently my stroke was a "mini stroke" or TIA. It wasn't as deep in the brain as yours was so it didn't cause any problems. They still didnn't say why I have the dizziness though. So I guess I'll just have to learn to live with it.. Thanks for the tip about the stomach muscles --I;ll be trying it. Hope things have gotten better for you .
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 I have had no recurrance but after hospital stay after the stroke I found out the blood in my heart pooled because my heart was not pumping the blood right and sent clot to brain. I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and A-fib. So if you don't have heart problems I guess your Strokes were caused by something else. Clot did not show up on CT. I can't do MRI's because of my defibrillator. I did not have headaches or noise problems. I did feel like I was going crazy.
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 n tn They did a MRI on his brain which showed he had a mild stroke, which effects the part of his brain that controls balance. He has not had his follow-up appt. with the 2nd neurologist, but he said it probably occured during surgery. Why wouldn't the heart specialist suspect a stroke? What kind of therapy, if any may help him? Or medications? He also has experienced chest pain, since July. What kind of test would help in finding out where the pain is coming from?
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 in may of 2006, i awoke to have blurred vision, left eye was like looking at a tv with vertical hold taken to hospital and told that i had vertigo............had an ashy taste in mouth, slurred speech, memory loss on simple words-i walked like an old person--they did a CT and nothing, i was given mezclazine(?
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 n tn I am 25 years-old and from Michigan, and I was told that I had a stroke from hypertension. But I don't seem to have any after effects. They put me on high blood pressure medication and that is it. Could my doctors be wrong?
Avatar n tn The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down. She is currently in a rehab hospital (March 18) with paralysis on the right side (arm and leg) and has aphasyia - she understands us but has a hard time getting her words out (she does put small phases together at times).
Avatar n tn The severity of this after effects is the true measure of how sick we really were. That is why this after effects are much stronger in those who SVR then in those who did not. And what do we mean by a 'normal' state? Pre-treatment state was not a 'normal' state; pre-infection was a normal state, and many of us were sick for so long that we do not even recall how that felt. If we do not feel the way we felt before treatment that is good, is it not? It means we are cured.
580765 tn?1274922960 I went off of them when another neuro told me that my first episode was not the mini stroke that they once thought. However, I have never had a racing heat episode while on a blood thinner. * Could it be that thinner blood helps the heart compensate better for an electrical issue? I was quite surprised to hear that my issues from the past 8 years were heart related, but relieved to hear that they were not neurological in nature. I will be following up with a cardiologist in the future.
Avatar n tn I was extremely fortunate to also have no residual effects from the stroke (that i notice). I was told by my neurologists after it happened that I could certainly have more children to go on living life as normal. ha.... Like that is possible... I have not had to see my neuroligist for well over a year now. I just took a pregnancy test today and found out I am pregnant.
Avatar n tn At 39 I was diagnosed with a TIA/mini-stroke. Initial Sympton: White light covered my sight and I started to mumble and unable to formulate words/or communicate with my co-workers. I went home "slept it off" and the next day returned to the office however, I couldn't put my thoughts together while crafting emails and went to the emergency room (Navy Medical Portsmouth, Va). A highly respected neurologist, after many many tests...
Avatar n tn I've heard that all the side effects everyone is talking about can be caused after you have a child too. Having a baby severely upsets your hormones natural balance. Naturally a mother's sex drive can go down and there is a high chance that the depression is postpartum. If you have had the IUD inserted right after you have had a baby, you could easily mistake certain 'side-effects' for what the body is naturally going through.
Avatar n tn One patient I am aware of developed a stroke from vitamin E after taking 2400 IU daily for several months. I don't think you can get into much trouble with up to 600 IU, if you insist on using it. I am also a believer in saunas, both hot and cold, and massage, if the patient is not too elderly. The best place to have this done is at a specialty medical spa with a physician present. There are several clinics with korean physicians (M.D.'s) who provide this service.
Avatar n tn I have been told that it is probably just cells rebuilding and after effects of the stroke, but I am looking for some answers and if others have felt these types of pains/shocks after a stroke and how long they lasted etc.
