Mini stroke diabetes

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke diabetes


Avatar n tn My doc said I had had a mini stroke!
Avatar n tn They are caused by occlusion of deep penetrating branches of major cerebral arteries and are particularly common in hypertension and diabetes. However, in your case, further evaluation is recommended using contrast agent to rule out presence of tumor. Discuss the result with your doctor for proper evaluation. Your medical history and symptoms are essential in determining the possible cause. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn If there are neurological symptoms persisting for more than 24 hours, it is classified as a cerebrovascular accident, or stroke. The most common cause of a TIA is an embolus (a small blood clot) that occludes an artery in the brain. This most frequently arises from an atherosclerotic plaque in one of the carotid arteries (i.e. a number of major arteries in the head and neck) or from a thrombus (i.e. a blood clot) in the heart due to atrial fibrillation.
Avatar m tn Get nutrition counseling for diabetes. We learn new things all the time about how to approach diabetes. I hope this did not offend you and I am sure it provides help for many who never ask questions. Thank you for helping the silent many.
Avatar f tn On the other hand they mentioned that folks that had diabetes and/or HBP, also having PVCs did not increase the risk of stroke. But this is just in the noise because diabetes and HPB already put them at higher risk. I can't read the entire study, it mentions people with "frequent" PVCs but did not specify what they meant by frequent. I wasn't aware of the study either, it's recent. I only see one other study linking to it so it doesn't have much peer review in my opinion.
Avatar n tn Hello! Just wanted to put in my two cents. Ok I had a mini stroke (TIA) and this is what I suggest according to your symptoms. Maybe you only had a TIA, where there is no damage.
Avatar m tn I have had a speech problem, which I attribute to a mini stroke as diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. They also diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. Since it didn't clear up, I sought a Speech Therapist who diagnosed me with Dysarthria. I have not received any treatment yet. I have had the condition for several months. I used to fall a lot, but I have learned to be very careful. My vision is blurry. I also have Diabetes, type II.
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.
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 f tn Diabetes is another risk factor for developing a stroke. It causes the small vessels to close prematurely. When the small blood vessels close in the brain, small strokes or lacunar strokes may occur. Blood thinner/warfarin:. Warfarin (Coumadin) is a blood thinner that prevents the blood from clotting. This medication is often used in patients with atrial fibrillation and with other heart conditions in which the blood has a tendency to clot on its own.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? A transient ischaemic attack (TIA) often called a mini stroke, happens when the brain’s blood supply is interrupted for a very brief time. The symptoms are very similar to a stroke (such as weakness on one side of the body, loss of sight and slurred speech) but they are temporary, lasting a few minutes or hours, and then disappearing completely within 24 hours.
1271365 tn?1306763979 Migraine Symptoms That Mimic a Stroke i get these allot maybe 2 times a week my speech is slurred and i am not able to drink the drinks pour out the left side of my face and my left side of my body is numb when i get these episodes.

Avatar n tn Last September he suffered a transient ischemic attack (or a mini-stroke). A few months ago he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and has just completed radiation treatment. He also has high blood pressure. He's 68 years old and lives by himself, and since the mini-stroke he just seems not to care about anything. His house is a disaster, all he seems to want to do is eat and sleep. He has not altered his diet or lifestyle to aid in his recovery.
Avatar n tn Also blood work negative for Myasthenia Gravis or Multiple Sclerosis. Hospital said too much time had past, and only suggested possible mini-stroke. Tests did NOT confirm any heart damage. Only one small blood clot found in neck, but too small to do any surgery. January 18, 2007 Progressive Weakness and slurred speech. Current Meds: Diabetes and High Blood Pressure.
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 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 n tn Episode in late September that was diagnosed as the first TIA (mini-stroke). During exams a CTscan was done that was read a couple of times and discovered Laryngocele (both sides). Surgery is being planned, once the cause of the now 12 TIAs is determined. Another side effect and/or cause of the TIAs could possibly be Diabetes. (Doctors seem undecided to diagnose this, though doing all further exams as if has been diagnosed). During 4th TIA, blood sugar measured 221.
Avatar f tn i was diagnosed with coronary artery desease in january 2010 and in may i had two mini strokes , in june test results showed my right internal carotid artery was 50% blocked and my left internal carotid artery was 50% to 60% blocked.
Avatar m tn I have now been diagnosed with diabetes. I was given cogitative testing last year and was found that they were areas that I was good at but some areas I was poor. I gave up taking treatment for depression before Christmas and was put on Aricept. I am told that I have the early sighs of dementia. I seen a neurologist in the summer and was told that the X ray that I had taken some 12 years ago showed some cerebral atrophy. This surprised me as I was told that everything was normal.
Avatar f tn I have read that UBOs can be caused by mini-strokes, so maybe that explains the spot on my MRI? I've also read about stroke patients relearning how to do the things controlled by the affected part(s) of their brain, so I sometimes wonder if the reason so many of my issues started to fade after a few months was that my brain was learning to compensate for the damage. That's definitely how it feels, anyway. For instance, at first my word-finding abilities were HORRIBLE.
Avatar n tn Hello, My father had got a stroke about 3 years ago due to which many brain cells in the Thalamus area were affected. He has Blood pressure and is Diabetic. 3 months after the stroke he started facing great pain in the leg, thighs , hands and shoulders followed by swelling of the palm and legs. There is also burning sensation and tingling/pressure and numbness in the feet and hands which he is not able to bear. We have consulted many many doctors but with no cure.
Avatar n tn What could cause a mini stroke in your eye?
Avatar n tn and as far as i am aware small vessel disease (SVD) is associated with mini strokes, and conditions like Diabetes and high blood pressure are the more common causes of SVD but they probably wouldn't be the only causes and this would be what the neurologist needs to work out with further tests. Cheers........
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! TIA or transient ischemic attack is a mini stroke that happens when the blood supply to brain is temporarily cut off. The episodes last for a maximum of 24 hours and then resolve or a new symptom starts. The symptoms include temporary loss of sensation in any part of the body, black outs, vision loss, tingling, loss of function of a limb etc. It is common in people with high blood pressure, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, and high cholesterol.
Avatar n tn I am a 45 yr old female. I had a mini stroke 2 years ago. Don't know the cause. Also diagnosed with diabetes. High blood pressure. Since stroke I have been having irregular periods. Usually about every 3 weeks, used to be very heavy now very light. Lasting about 10 days. In last year right before my period my ears hurt and I get light-headed and nauseated. Have had teeth and ears checked, they are o.k. On meds for diabetes, blood pressure,anxiety and stroke for 2 years.
