Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke in young men


Avatar f tn By the way, my stroke was a carotid artery dissection stroke which is far more common in younger people. Was your stroke this type? I really appreciate you responding back to me and reminding me of the good. I'm sure that you will keep making gains. There is a lot of good ahead for you.
572651 tn?1531002957 I was in the Army for several years -- one of only two females in a long line of men in my family who have served. The other female is my mom. I'm super proud of her for breaking that barrier for women, and I was so proud to follow in her footsteps. The girl part is pretty easy, and the 73 is how old I feel (not really) it's actually my birth year.
Avatar f tn My mom had something similar and went in to have it removed. She has a tiny scar, but is glad it is gone. I don't know what caused it. Her procedure was outpatient, so she went home the same day.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn but the majority of times blood came out in the sperm, or only after ejaculation during urination, or both in the sperm and the urine. once i woke up without having had sex that week and urinated blood. i tested my blood, sperm, and urine and the only abnormality was a high psa level. my dr said it is very rare and is that high in 40/50 year old. i did a biopsy for prostate cancer and my dr said that everything was ok. after the biopsy, i waqs back to normal.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar n tn I was so useto them at that time I thought everyone suffered the same or something. You are very young, no children, but in some time that seems to be quite prevelent for women of this day and time for women. I have never been one to go to the doctor except for normal yearly visits and our family GP for flues etc. It is like since Oct.98,with back problem and feling of a tearing in my ovary area, all on the right side, it has been one hing after anther.
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar n tn I too am having this strange wet, warm sensation on my inner left thigh. It's been going on for the last month or so. It will happen somtimes only a few times a day or as much as 3 or 4 times an hour and lasts only few seconds. As best as I can determine it doesn't happen while I'm sleeping. SO....I did some checking and as many have already mentioned, this symptom can sometimes mean a potential blood clot.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it seems that it comes on later in the afternoon almost routine and then it sometimes happens out of the blue in the morning. I try to change my underwear twice a day and don't wear any underwear at nigh for bed. I'm not sure what triggers this...I know about 2.5 years ago I got a really nasty vaginal infection..Then it was treated and I've been tested for STD's all negative. I sometimes wonder if it came from the boyfriend at that time.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn Left untreated, a magnesium deficiency can lead to more life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, stroke, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and others. Magnesium's role in energy production. One of the primary roles of magnesium is to activate the adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy storage molecule, to create and store energy. Without energy, there is no life. Magnesium's role in relaxing muscles.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar m tn Participants were 65 years or older and were involved in the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men Study. Investigators assessed cognitive function using the modified Mini-Mental State Examination and the Trails B test. At baseline, the odds ratios for cognitive impairment were between 1.6 and 1.8 in the lowest vitamin D quartile compared with the highest. However, these odds ratios did not reach statistical significance and were lower after controlling for race, ethnicity, and education.

Avatar n tn I've had numerous neurological symptoms. I do have a lump in my skull in my forehead called a Haemangioma of the Skull which caused severe pain and also spots on my brain MRIs so I am not sure what my problem is. My best wishes to you and I hope you find out what the problem is, it's very hard to be suffering so much all the time. keep looking for answers there must be one out there.
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 m tn Skin hyperpigmentation caused by an increase in melanin of the basal layer and dispersion of melanin granules has been seen and is more common in women than in men. Phenytoin can produce hypertrichosis or hirsutism (unusual growth of hair) in some patients. This reaction is generally confined to the extremities but can affect the trunk and face and may be irreversible. Severe dermatologic reactions to phenytoin are infrequent.
Avatar n tn i had a stroke april 09 and again in october 09 then a heart attack in december 09 and a bypass in june of 2010 will i ever get my old life back everything is going wrong for me
Avatar m tn A TIA - if you don't know is a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) which is often labeled a “mini-stroke,” it is more accurately characterized as a “warning stroke,” a warning you should take very seriously. I don't want to frighten you - as your SX (symptoms) are not totally in line with a TIA. A TIA is caused by a clot; the only difference between a CVA (stroke) and TIA is that with TIA the blockage is transient. TIA SX usually occur rapidly and last a relatively short time.
1169520 tn?1263430421 Thank you for your response! The MRI was done first because they were afraid I had a TIA (Mini Stroke)! The symptoms I went in complaining about that day was dizzyness and numbness in my left hand! After the MRI then my primary care Dr called me with the resaults and set up an appointment with the neurologist. I am the type of person that prepairs for the worst but hopes and preys for the best. So once something is said that it could be I fully educate myself on the subject.
Avatar n tn But after eating a diet filled with blueberries they all performed better, even the rats who were fed blueberries for just one month. In fact, in just one month's time, they scored just as well as the young rats in the study. On the other hand, the aging rats fed a normal diet performed worse on later tests. In addition, the aging rats fed blueberries for at least two months kept their young brains.
281565 tn?1295986283 You are quite young and are hardly likely to have been having mini strokes or something similar, unless you've described problems I'm unaware of. But even if you do have this 'ischemic change,' they should be getting to the bottom of that too. Is it entirely harmless? Who knows? Limbo for that isn't good either. However, demyelination is also suggested as a cause, and that seems to fit with your age and your symptoms much better.
Avatar n tn After three days in the hospital and many medical tests, a PHO was found, and an MRI showed that it was indeed a stroke. One week after the stroke, I started having tingling in my right arm and leg. My right eye was constantly tearing, and I had headaches off and on. You have no idea how happy I was to discover this message board and realize that I was not alone. I was amazed that many of you had the same symptoms as I have.
404138 tn?1308945256 The doctor she saw put her on ultrum and cymbolta for the pain( I'm not sure if I spelled that correctly), then another doctor said that she couldnt take the two together, so now she's just taking cymbolta in the morning and she still suffers alot, she gets up in the middle of the night almost every two hours, if that, and hops in the hot shower which helps the pain a little bit, sometimes she in and out of the shower all night just so the pain isn't so bad.
544292 tn?1268886268 Free your mind from worries. 3. Live simply. 4. Give more. 5. Expect less. Breathe in Faith... Breathe out Fear... Happy Day 32! Slept 9 solid hours, woke up feeling HAPPY! Three steps backwards yesterday, seven steps forward this morning! YES! To me it it beyond impressive!
Avatar n tn Have you completely recovered from the mini stroke? After considerable reading,investigation and consideration I have asked for the homograft also. I am scheduled for surgery at the CCF on 2/29.
717272 tn?1277594380 If it does, the parathyroid will make too much hormone, which will destroy your bones and put so much calcium in your blood that it will cause kidney stones, joint pain, hardening arteries and stroke if you don't figure it out soon after it happens. Adding more calcium will hurt you faster. If you discover osteoporosis after TX, check it out, don't take more calcium automatically.
Avatar n tn Yes my father had a stroke when he was 53 and my mother had one when she was 70 along with triple by pass at 73 and my oldest sister a stroke at 48 and then a five bi pass at 55. It does run in my family and but my blood pressure is always normal always been on the lower side, except when I get nervous at the doctor. Cholesterol is a different story which I am working on that. But most of us know our own bodies and know when they are sick.
5974753 tn?1379619227 I find that odd since you cannot leave children unattended in a car, which is a felony charge as far as I know, though I realize this is in case of heat stroke, etc. I had not thought of the work log. Thanks. That is a very good indication of work hours and not being available to care for a dependant. He has had custody of him for 5 years acting alon, and so that goes back many years of neglect.
