Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke children

stroke

Avatar n tn 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. probably you should get a heart evaluation as well as a doppler test of your brain and neck arteries to make sure you don't have any blockages. a doctor should also check how you feel lying down and standing up and take your blood pressure in both of those positions. happy holidays and feel better.

Avatar n tn When I asked my neurologist if I would be able to have children after my stroke he told me to let my body heal and rehab for a couple of years. I knew it was a big risk but I prayed everyday god just let me make it thru today. She is my little miracle. I'm not going to push my body for a second one I thank god for this one.
Avatar n tn Unlike everybody else here, I am the husband and my wife had a TIA (mini stroke) in June 2009. The reasons behind the stroke to this day have never been answered. The doctors initially tried every test (apart from the TEE - transesophogeal echocardiogram). No answers were found. The background of events behind the stroke are what we truly believe hold the answer to the event itself.
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.
15915009 tn?1488871938 Once I was on my feet again, I remember that I wouldn't see my Grade 12 graduation, that is happening this year, if I didn't get any treatment when I did since I would have had a stroke from having my mini seizures, especially when I do sudden moments or doing cardio (e.g. running or doing jumps at my dance classes) or a heart attack from my heart going so fast. Two years after diagnosed, I'm really thankful that I'm alive today. I am on 5 mg of methimazole daily at the moment.
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 n tn My 55 yr old mother had a "massive" hemorrhagic stroke Feb. 18/05. 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.
Avatar n tn My DX is vertigo, but I was told yesterday, by someone with vertigo, that is not what I have. They are staying away from the word stroke because it seems I'm too young at 35 to have one of those. What led to my dizinness and nausea is different, but I'm left with same. One day can be good with little dizziness, and some days bad, but the nausea has worn off. I don't get nausiated all the time anymore with the diziness.
Avatar n tn I go back and forth about the pro's and con's of this procedure and about staying on Coumadin and the chances of having another stroke. I constantly worry about having another stroke. If I have this procedure, I will probably worry about having this device move or break over time in the middle of my heart during exercise. I am really scared! What do you think is the less risky? What should I do?
Avatar n tn Hi I'm terribly upset. My dad has just had a stroke. He's 72 and is currently in hospital virtually asleep full time. We know that it is caused by a blood clot stemming from Atrial Fibrillation and it has affected his left side (No vision, left arm and leg) The doctor has painted a very bleak picture which was very devastating and right now at this moment it just seems that there is no hope. Can anyone re-assure me that if he survives there is some hope for quality of life.
Avatar n tn once that about went away, I felt 'normal' again - which was the day the stroke came! I am a mother of 2 children -- the youngest at the time was 2 years old. We are contemplating the idea of another child. I have seen a neurologist and vascular neurologist (VN) afterwards and the VN feels unsure as to whether another child will be a good idea or not. Since VAD is still rare, I was a case study and specialists are still learning a lot about it with each case. The Dr.
451975 tn?1372332199 They did all the normal tests MRI, MRA, and tons of blood work. Although the CT scan showed something that they thought may have been a mini stroke the other tests ruled it out and they diagnosed me with a silent or atypical migraine. I had all symptoms of a stroke. The numbness, tingling, drooping of the eyes and mouth on one side, no facial expressions and I could hardly talk. It has been one week and my strength is still not back on my right side and and my speech is still very slurred.
Avatar f tn Anyone functioning well enough to answer, to discuss your coping with stroke deficits that have remained for a year ago or longer. My stroke was more than 3.5 years ago and I still have some resentment about everything that I can't do. I would like to get a better attitude about it. But either way you are handling it, it would be helpful for me to hear about anyone else who still struggles with problems.
Avatar f tn My name is Ellie and im 16 years old. I had a mini stroke on the left side of my brain about 2 months ago. I didnt have any medical problems, no blood clots, high blood pressure, i dont take birth control (any of the main factors) but i am overweight. Doctors have no idea what could of caused it except for stress and thats the hardest part dealing with it because i dont know how too prevent it or how it happened. I couldnt talk (felt like i had a thick tounge) and had numbness in my right arm.
667937 tn?1227762298 I agree, go to a doctor immediately! My mom waited 2 days after experincing a severe headache and she ended up freezing up and becoming incoherent. Come to find out, she had 2 strokes and several mini ones!
Avatar f tn I don't know who I should see about it to get help. I would love a chance to learn about other stroke/mini-stroke patient's experiences as well as those of their caregivers.
Avatar f tn I didn't know if this personality change could be as a result of all his medication and a mix with the alcohol or if a mini stroke could cause this. It is very unlike him to be doing things that he used to think were immoral.
Avatar n tn First, I am 33 years old, and my Dad's mother passed from fhe disease in 1980, she was the only family member to have had it so far, no one before her, and none of her children including my Dad are fine. I've noticed that my right toes feel off, I've had twitching all around, face, legs, and even feels like in my chest. I've dropped things here and there, and I feel like swallowing feels different!
1396867 tn?1520813858 She had been in the ICU 1 day short of 7 weeks She went in for not feeling well, turned out she aspirated and it got into ther lungs, this put stress on her heart(she is cardiac patient), they induced coma, which in the process she had a mini stroke and heart attack. Turns out the nausea was from her gall bladder being infected. Throughout all this her kidneys started failing and duialysys was started.
Avatar f tn My mother is a nurse, yet he won't listen to her when she tells him he needs to take his medicine or watch what he eats. In 2003, he had his first stroke after basically eating the whole pie of Papa John's pizza. We thought that would be his reality check. Guess what? It wasn't. Then 3 years ago, he had a second stroke. Reality check? No. He still does not believe in doctors, nor medicine. He has diabetes, just like his father, grandfather, great-grandfather, etc.
549269 tn?1236134237 So there is a question as to whether or not I have been having TIAs. Mini strokes as they are called. I am in Rochester MN right now at the Mayo Clinic to see several doctors. YEsterday at my hotel I was taken by ambulence after having sudden severe dizzyness, slurred speech, left sided weakness, difficulty walking, and possible seizures. After 1 1/2 hours in the ER and several tests I started to return to normal. I see an stroke doctor today and Dr Oro in January.
Avatar n tn I was seeing a neurologist for severe migraines and a mini-stroke. When they ran a bunch of blood work. that's when they found out about the blood clotting and took me off of BCP and the cysts began. My current gyn has put me on a progesterone only pill hoping this will regulate some of the cysts. Unfort. it has not.
Avatar f tn My 33 year old daughter had a stroke 3 years ago and since then has had 3 DVTs, and 2 mini strokes. 8 weeks ago she had blood work done and we found out that she has a clotting disorder which has yet to be identified to us. Her hematologist said the blood work can take several weeks before we get a diagnosis. She has gone to the Coumadin clinic once a week for the last 8 weeks and her INR levels have been in the 2 range. 3 days ago she woke up in severe pain.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Intracranial Hypertension (IH) formerly and often more commonly known as Pseduotumor Cerebri, over 14 years ago. Just over a year ago I started down the road of having VP Shunt surgeries and in little more than a year, I had 4 actual VP Shunt surgeries.
Avatar n tn My name is Katie, and I an 30yrs old-still young:) Like you, my symptoms started with a vision problem. ( I am a paramedic and I was on a run trying to give a patient medications when all of a suddem my vision became blurry.) I wear glasses/contacts and I still coulden't see clearly. It was very scarey. I've had the "mini stroke" symptoms and just found out I have lesions on my brain and spine. ( I am not married and don't have children yet and am still pretty young.
Avatar n tn My neurologist thought it might have been a mini stroke. But has said now that he does not know and now has referred me for a second opinion. I have no pain with any of this.
Avatar n tn If you have stroke risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, family history of stroke in someone less than 50,high cholesterol, smoking, heart disease, then these could represent mini strokes. But you are relatively young for a stroke, and the diagnosis should be taken into clinical context. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn I avoid the outdoors because of this and can no longer garden, walk my dog, go to the beach or spend time outside with my children. Because my profession often involves bright lights and loud noises I have discontinued it, and although I know these symptoms to some degree are hallmarks of migraine there is never any relief, except for when I sleep, which gives me relief 90% of the time.
1152950 tn?1263917826 I'll try to be brief-- Little over a year ago I went in with left sided numbness, speech issues, nausea, and drowsiness. I was sent home after a brief visit with the diagnosis of "viral syndrome". The only tests performed were cbc, basic chem. Labs were normal. Left side returned to normal within a couple of hours but vertical virtigo persisted for months.
