Mini stroke aspirin

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke aspirin

stroke

Avatar n tn Stroke Prevention The FDA recommends regular aspirin use to prevent a stroke in people who have suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA or mini-stroke). Aspirin also helps prevent a second or recurrent stroke and, as with heart attacks, lessens the damaging effects of a stroke that does occur.
Avatar f tn I had pipeline stent with coiling due to an 8.5mm unruptured aneurysm on the right ICA last 11 January 2011. Returned to hospital afterwards due to TIA symptoms and was given Lipitor as cholesterol level was borderline and given just to make sure that it is not causing the "mini-stroke". I have been given Plavix and aspirin from the onset and I am still on it. I have had my follow-up check up on the 11th March with the neurointerventional radiologist and asked a lot of questions.
Avatar f tn I believe that the greatest risk is your likelihood of a full blown stroke, which of course can be life threatening. A TIA (mini stroke) is usually considered a warning sign by Doctors that something needs to be addressed. I assume they have given you medication to help lower the risk of a clot forming? such as aspirin?
Avatar f tn Is it possible that without me realizing it that I may have had a mini stroke and not know it or am I over reacting? Since then my blood pressure has been 150/90.
Avatar n tn On Sept 20 had my second cryptogenic stroke (1st one approx 15 yrs ago) and have PFO and ASA. Second mini stroke was in the right posterior frontal parietal junction cortex 4mm in diameter. Neurologically, I have postural instability (per the neurologist) with the only explanation that this could be related to my left leg weakness from the L4-L5 fusion surgery in 2006. Question: I am concerned about being on Warafin and my instability.
Avatar f tn Had a mini stroke on January 2018 affected my right leg but both now and getting burning sensation while a walk not much due my fatigue legs.
Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.

1474856 tn?1288289049 Transient Ischemic Attack Symptoms can include: numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.
Avatar f tn I had a small stroke March 15. I have no problems with BP, cholesterol or diabetes. An echocardiogram of my heart showed it to be perfectly normal. I have minor weakness on my right arm and leg, but no pain, headaches or other symptoms. I often do not feel like eating, especially my former favorite foods and sometimes feel a slight queasiness. I am presently taking one Lipitor and one aspirin per day.
889293 tn?1241085124 Am now due to have MRI today. Consultant has said that if MRI shows damage then he is sure that I have suffered mini-stroke, but if not then its stress! Is it likely that the MRI will show something that the CT hasn't? (CT done 2 weeks after last episode MRI 5 weeks later). Also if the MRI does come back clear, should I just accept stress as the reason behind my sudden visual loss and numbness/heavyness etc in my leg?
Avatar f tn t have any other risk factors for stroke. My neurologist told me that I have had multiple mini strokes. Does factor 5 leiden only involve veins? What about cappillaries? Is it true tht aspirin is not for preventing this kind of stroke.(Venous?) Is plavix useful? or does it have to be coumadin?
Avatar f tn You need to find a neurologist and someone who treats stroke patients. My daughter is on Plavix and aspirin. The leading stroke hopital for children is in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Which is the CHOPS. Google CHOPS. They have an excellent pediatric stroke program. We are currently trying to get help from them. Finding the right treatment and doctors can be very overwhelming, keep your head up!
Avatar n tn Since treatment of clots is very restrictive in her case, maybe aspirin can be tried. In patients on hemodialysis aspirin is known to decrease the chances of stroke, without increasing the chances of bleeding. However, the dose needs to be adjusted well. Also aspirin can be combined with Coumadin. Aspirin can be combined with clopidogrel also and reduces the risk of stroke. Please discuss these options with her treating doctor.
Avatar n tn He passed away last year from an aneurism. My father had 2 mini-strokes. My mom just suffered a serious ishemic stroke. The doctors could not reverse it in time with the t-pa medication. Good Luck in Your Research!
Avatar f tn had coiling embolisation done with stent due to an unruptured aneurysm on the right ICA. returned to hospital afterwards due to TIA symptoms and was given Lipitor as cholesterol level was borderline and given just to make sure that it is not causing the "mini-stroke". I have been given Plavix and aspirin from the onset and I am still on it.
Avatar f tn I had a mini stroke in 2007 October. It didn’t do any damage to me. They did all kind of test. MRI extra, ECG all. My age was 40 but I look younger than my age, I never had BP, high Collateral, or diabetics….nothing at all. Finally they said I may have a small whole in my heart which is almost lots of people have like this and many of them even don’t know about it, rest of their life. I have 2 kids and they are grown up. but I got pregnant again.

Avatar n tn My doctor thinks it could be brain stem mini strokes. He also said it is possible these are signs of a future stroke (brain stem). Is this even possible? I am hypothyroid on synthroid and take aspirin. I have normal blood pressure and borderline cholestorol. Also, where should I go to get a quality second opinion on this?
Avatar n tn I have a loved one who had an old infarct found after experiencing symptoms of a TIA or mini-stroke. The old part for my loved one meant it happened months previously. They didn't see anything from the TIA he had just experienced. I think God used the flaxseed oil capsules he was taking, which have a mild anti-coagulant to the platelets property to prevent something potentially worse happening when he had the "old" infarct happen, which we didn't realize about.
Avatar f tn I refused to take plavix or coumadin and I'm only taking aspirin. I keep reading stuff that says aspirin is not at all helpful. My MRI shows that I already had some ministrokes?? Does anyone know the facts? Is aspirin useless under these circumstances?
Avatar f tn I have a history of hemipelgic and basilar migraines with aura that last for months two or three a day that end with loss of function from mini-stroke(s). I have had the associated hemipelgia, blood clots in eyes and loss of peripheral vision/depth perception as well as moderate/severe dementia in 2004 that waxes and wanes (and gets worse with each migraine.TIA episode). It seems that every couple of years the basal artery acts up and reeks havoc on my body.
