Mini stroke high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke high blood pressure


Avatar m tn Yes, you are very correct to be greatly concerned. You can go to the American Heart Association's site and search for stroke risk factors. The time when you're most likely to have a stroke is when you've already had one, or had mini-strokes. Having high blood pressure also makes you at risk. Having had a heart attack means you're at extra risk. Many years ago, physicians believed that it was okay to have a blood pressure which was equal to 100 plus your age.
Avatar f tn Being that you have a history of HTN (high blood pressure), you are definitely at high risk for a TIA/Stroke. You could have possibly have had a TIA/Stroke. Secondly, with a blood pressure that elevated and symptoms, please go immediately to the ER; don't try to treat yourself at home; bad idea.
Avatar n tn It passed after about one minute and a I had just a little nausea for another five minutes. I am 52 years old, high blood pressure and diabetes type II that is under control.
Avatar m tn I was placed in the hospital for overnight observation and was released the following day to my family doctor. I have high blood pressure so he placed me on Exforge 10-325-25mg HCT and also Clopidogrel 75mg In the hospital I had a MRA, MRI, CATSCAN, Chest Xray and several blood tests. I lost peripheral vision in the left eye. When I left the hospital I had this slight lump across from my left ear about 1 inch long pointing to the top of my head.
Avatar n tn i have the last few years been suffering ms symptons off balance stiffness burning stinging pain and lot of other problems that go with it earlier this year i got a new sympton numbness on the side of my face my hubby took me to hospital where i was put on a stroke ward to rule out a stroke th e doctor who saw to me didnt think it was a stroke but iwas to have an mri to rule it out i told the stroke doctor i think its ms but since i was on a sroke ward they had to rule out a stroke i have just
Avatar n tn t seem to be the case, you could have made a wrong movement or something like that. High blood pressure will cause issues with the heart, but if you have a mini stroke you would most likely know. I am not a professional but I am guessing they put you on some type of pill for the blood vessel. Just do what they tell you and if your problems continue then you should tell your doctor what you think and he will let you know his professional opinion.
Avatar n tn i suffer from hypertention (high blood preasure) and high colesterol, male 42 years. just been admitted with possible cerebral vascular accident. mri was clear but was told with mild strokes it wont always appear on scan??? Was advised to do test to see if enough oxygen is getting to brain. speach is slurred and left side of face is pulling? What should i do?
Avatar n tn No matter which way you look at it, the sudden difficulty in speech must have been a sudden drop in oxygen to the brain. Maybe it was what is termed as a mini stroke which you usually quickly recover from. I would question your medication, perhaps you need something to lower the risk of strokes until they discover the problem. Have the carotid arteries in your neck been checked over?
Avatar n tn My Father, who has had extremely low blood pressure all his life, was just admitted to the hospital suffering from mini-strokes and high blood pressure. I'm especially interested in learning what mini-strokes are. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. d. = As you'll see in the explanation below, "mini-strokes" is one of my least favorite terms because it is vague and can be used to describe two entirely different things.
Avatar f tn During a stress response, blood vessels constrict and the blood pressure goes up. Often oxygen-rich blood cannot be supplied adequately to the brain, causing the symptoms of a mini stroke. In severe cases, increased pressure can cause the arteries in the brain to rupture and cause a hemorrhagic (bleed) stroke. All the best to your mom http://www.savingthebrain.
Avatar f tn and they said it was not tia and no need for mri. i have low blood pressure and wonder was it low flow tia. my neck has been hurting me a lot recently too i wonder would that have anything to do with it. i'm very healthy no drink or smoke 46 years old. no history of ms or early stroke in family. i'm baffled and i just went home without asprin or any other drug. i would like an mri and wonder if that would show anything.
Avatar n tn It is common in people with high blood pressure, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, and high cholesterol. If TIA is suspected then all predisposing factors to TIA should be ruled out like polycythemia vera, sickle cell disease, diabetes, hyperviscosity syndromes, hypertension etc. Generally this can happen several times before an actual stroke happens. This is a warning sign for the body. If you have such episodes, then you must get them evaluated immediately.
Avatar m tn No warning whatsoever. With my heart attacks or mini stroke. Especially with the mini stroke. I was watching TV one evening and all of a sudden the vision in my right eye went. In an instant I could only see the bottom of everything with my right eye.
Avatar n tn Again this can be due to low oxygen supply to brain where the blood supply to brain is temporarily cut off generally due to a spasm of the arteries, or a clot or high blood pressure causing micro leaks in the brain. It is common in people with high blood pressure, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, and high cholesterol. Hence all predisposing factors to TIA should be ruled out like polycythemia vera, sickle cell disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, hyperviscosity syndromes, hypertension etc.
Avatar m tn Hi, how old are you and do you have history of hypertension? This could be TIA or mini stroke, anxiety, high blood pressure etc. Best will be get your blood pressure checked along with MRI to rule out mini stroke. At least for once get blood lipid profile done along with blood sugar.Take care!
Avatar n tn My husband is 65 years old with a history of high cholesterol (controlled by medication) and recently has developed high blood pressure. His cardiologist decided my husband needed a heart cath because he said his EI had gone from 50 to 32 over 2 years. The cath was performed and nothing was found (other than a healthy heart for a 65 year old man). Five weeks later my husband had a TIA (mini-stroke) and was hospitalized 2 days for testing.
Avatar n tn something popped in my head about 2 weeks ago, went to doctor today and he said it could have been a mini stroke, is this right and is there anything else that could have caused this, im in a lot of pain and my blood pressure is high,
468653 tn?1207149600 Im in constant fear of having a full blown stroke, leaving me paralised or worse. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol, which is hereditary, as Im a slim 8 and a half stone woman of 48. I have always had a good diet and dont smoke.

937826 tn?1261333879 blood pressure still high still having trouble breathing have to use my oxygen doctors won't give me medication yet I will have a stroke soon I am going to another doctor for a second opionoion
Avatar f tn I wish I can record my blood pressure 3 times a day. My mother had a massive stroke and passed away, so I like to keep close eye on my blood pressure.
Avatar n tn Mini-strokes that show up on an MRI but are clinically silent occur due to longstanding high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and other stroke risk factors. They do not have anything to do with her headaches. Your mom is on the right track if she can stop taking those meds. High blood pressure in itself can cause headaches, so make sure that is well controlled, too. GOod luck.

Avatar n tn Have a 46 year old, 188 pound coworker. Came home one Friday night from a trip to Chicago & was fine that evening. Saturday and Sunday he had very slurry speech and a headcahe. Sunday it took him about two hours to wake up. At one time as he was trying, his eyes rolled back in his head. He was given an MRI and they found high signal "something" white spots. He went to a neurologist just last week who said "come back in a month if the problems are still happening.
469720 tn?1388146349 Physical inactivity and obesity - Being inactive, obese or both can increase your risk of high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. So go on a brisk walk, take the stairs, and do whatever you can to make your life more active. Try to get a total of at least 30 minutes of activity on most or all days. What are other, less well-documented risk factors? Geographic location - Strokes are more common in the southeastern United States than in other areas.
Avatar n tn 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. Could these symptoms be hormone related? What to do?
