Mini stroke long term effects

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke long term effects


Avatar n tn Hello... I am interested about how they determined that your 2nd procedure was unsuccessful. Did you have recurrence of the arrhythmia? If in fact you still have atrial flutter, I know that the Mayo Clinic does, as a last resort for cure, perform a surgical procedure called a "mini maze." These are usually performed for curative measures for people who suffer with Afib, but there have been successes with Atrial Flutter as well. You could check out the Mayo Clinic online.

Avatar m tn they are the worste) 4 years after the initial stroke? with out having another stroke, or a TIA, mini-stroke? and If it is possible, what recourse do I have left? Physical activity isnt doing it any more. Interupts my sleep like you dont even know...Ill be so dayum tired, but my leg aches so bad.
Avatar n tn Also, the studies for long term effects take years to establish a link, and what studies that have been given may now begin to show any long-term effects. and it appears the jury is still out on the subject. Thanks for the questions, and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond. Take care.
Avatar f tn I read your post on the GS 7977 thread related to TIAs (transient ischemic attack or mini-stroke. Up until yesterday I never heard of the term but I heard a story on the news about a former child actor who is now a musician had one. You are young and he is ten years younger than you. "..TIA begins like a regular stroke, but then any noticeable symptoms or deficits disappear within an hour." Here is the link in case you are curious http://marquee.blogs.cnn.
Avatar f tn While it IS possible that you have been experiencing mini-strokes, I would hesitate to agree with a normal stroke. I agree with your doctor that you are showing symptoms of anxiety due to stress. Stress and anxiety can both cause stroke and heart attack like symptoms. From the chest pain you described, I would say it's likely anxiety related. I'm not saying that you aren't having mini-strokes...but you are not having major strokes.
Avatar m tn The person that you are talking about may have had a sudden loss of neurological function due to problem in the blood flow to the brain. it could have been a mini stroke with a normal CT or MRI scan. There are certain causes of mini stroke, which I hope have been excluded. These are seizures, migraines, mini stroke affecting memory areas etc. Is he a hypertensive and how is his blood glucose control?
Avatar f tn t know if these are normal effects, and what I can do about them. The neurologist has long since released me and never recommended any treatment for the mental effects. What experiences have other had? Where do I look for help and what do I do? Thanks!
Avatar f tn If he is losing strength on his left side, it can be due to the cyst or TIA or a mini stroke or even due to a pinched nerve high up in cervical region. If your husband had a CT then go for MRI of the brain and cervical spine. It is difficult to comment beyond this on net. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn I am 78 and had a mini stroke 11 Jun 2014. 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 ve had same problem for 16 yrs this week I had and echo with bubble done on my heart they found a hole in my heart which is normal in 25 percent of population but for me the pfo or hole in my heart causes tia or mini stroke there is a procedure that can fix hole but not approved by fda so not approved
Avatar f tn It took her 4 months to get better which was fantastic but she had to go back for another angiogram. After this she had another mini stroke.. before all these she develops a migraine and then the stroke symptoms come on.. No doctor understand what this is, or how to prevent it. We pray that someone out there can relate to this and we can find a preventive before she gets sick again. Thankyou.
500374 tn?1210071413 I suffered two strokes in my pons and midbrain after a chiropractic upper neck manipulation. I'm very lucky to have survived and to have minimal physical deficits. However, I struggle with cognitive issues such as attention deficiency, short-term memory loss and inability to multi-task. Everything I've read about mid-brain strokes only mentions the physical long term effects. Is there anyone out there who is experiencing cognitive issues from this type of stroke?...
Avatar n tn I discontinued because I was worried about the negative effects on my memory. Having had 4 mini strokes and mild cognitive impairment makes me more at risk for Alzheimers. My memory and balance both returned to normal after I stopped. Last December 21, I started drinking Xango mangosteen juice. And it was like the acupuncture all over again. The inflamation went away in my legs, but I have the same negative effects with my balance and memory.
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 Could you tell me if these encounters have likely caused any type of long term permanent brain damage or long term permanent damage to my nervous system? Also, would these exposures have raised my risks of cancers? I didn't have any significant noticeable short term physical effects other than possibly some nose irratation. Please let me know if I am in danger. I would greatly appreciate your insight. The web has conflicting information about these dangers.
6359965 tn?1393488636 I had a mini stroke behind my right eye now I have a headache all the time is this normal?I had a carotid endarterectomy on the right side of my neck dec 20th 2013 ,Feb 18 2014 started having problems with my right eye.I went to the eye dr and he sent me to my dr that did the carotid endarterectomy and he said it was a mini stroke.I have like a gray fog over my eye all the time and like northern lights in the corner.My head hurts bad sometimes and I get nauseated.
Avatar f tn had a mild stroke during that time as well. I notice the side effects but cant tell when the actual attack happened. They havent affected my speech or movement....just my brain seeming to get stuck....i have to focus to get it working right. One of the side effects seems to be abnormally long periods of sleeping...this last time was the worst...slept almost 24 hours without waking up even to go to bathroom! Someone mentioned "blackouts" is this what the blackouts are?
Avatar m tn I am sure I am not alone but it seems to me the pacemaker might be my best shot to get off drugs. Aside from updating the pacemaker are there any long term effects of it? If anyone has any similiar problems let me know. I just wish all cardiologist and eltrophyisiologists had agreeable and consistant treatments.
Avatar n tn But there are numerous short and long-term side effects which must be weighed against the risks of NOT using it. There may or may not be better choices than Haldol (newer agents such as Zyprexa, Seroquel) as far as risk for tardive dyskinesia (TD) is concerned. I hope this helps.
