Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke long term effects

500374 tn?1210075013 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?...or has anyone seen any information online that addresses this?
Avatar m tn He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar f tn just joined today so looking around for info on lacunar infarcts. Last year I had a TIA which only lasted an hour or so with no long term effects. Recently I've been experiencing extreme vertigo and forget what I'm saying from one minute to the next. Went to see my family practioner who had me get an MRI. Apparently several of these infarcts swo up as well as old ones in the deep white matter. Doc tells me to take Vitamins E and C...then all will be well.
Avatar m tn Anxiety festers to a life-threatening level, and my short-term memory is now shot, but my long-term memory has actually increased sixfold over the years. My heart pounds often, but I am actually able to run mile after mile and I lift weights. I just recovered from a relapse...but every single time I binge for weeks and weeks at a time taking 16-32 at a time, about 1-3 times a day. I feel as if my mind is no longer the way a human mind should be.
Avatar n tn as I am medically inclined and cometent. My dad 52 years old suffered a stroke about 10 months ago , it was ischemic, however his health is excellent and he worked out everyday. The carotid us and the echo came back good, with minimal plaque. The doc says it occured bc of atr-fib of the heart which is understandable.. He was dehydrated the day before and it was the following night that the stroke happened. He lost all motor skills on Left side(Rt MCA was affected.
Avatar n tn I cannot remember how long it was after the PT and my stroke, but no more than 2-3 days. Either way, I had a stroke in my cerebellum, my angiogram showed that the artery looked like it might have been torn, and it was speculated by them that the artery had dissected.
Avatar n tn Today, 24 hours later, she seems to have almost completely recovered and has most of her function back. What are the long-term effects of a stroke of this kind? And have any of you experienced or heard of this kind of recovery? We are extremely close to these people and want to do everything we can to help them recover. What can they expect moving forward?
Avatar n tn how long after ur stroke could u move agin I had a stroke age 24 an it was only 8mths ago but I still cant move my toes or ankle at all
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 after 3 1/2 - 4 weeks in ICU she was in the rehab part of the hospital for 3 weeks, then transferred to a long term rehab out of town and was there for 3 months. She came home after that. She is not the same person, but to look at her you would think she is just as normal as anyone else. She has no short term memory at all. The doctors did not think she would even survive the night, much less the surgery. She works full time where she was working when it happened and is doing well.
Avatar f tn Sweety, what you experienced was a transient ischemic attack aka 'mini stroke' although your side effects were a bit different than the normal occurring, they are still within the boundaries of a stroke. The sweating + nausea not to mention the 3 minutes or so you were delusional and yelling at your friend. I am a male, also 21. I've experienced one as well, numbness in my left arm and mouth, delusional as well, then muscle convulsions.
Avatar n tn Is it normal to be sleeping for this long after a stroke? Shouldn't he be getting more energy each day? Is there a critical timeframe whereby if he doesn't start waking up more than we can expect him to be like this forever?
Avatar n tn My grandmother had stroke and now shes talking crazy thins and cant recognize people.Im afraid if its a long term effect of stroke or Is this just tempory side effect ?
Avatar n tn I experienced the side effects I was told could happen, worse cramps and heavier bleeding. I am fine with these because my choice for birth control is very limited because I get blood clots and cannot take the pill. However, I am wondering if anyone has experienced a decrease in thier sex drive becasue of it. I am only 29 years old, married to a very wonderful and attractive man, but honestly I could care less about sex.

I'm especially interested in learning what mini-strokes are. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. d.
Avatar n tn It is their body that decides how long it will take to recover, just be there, love him, educate yourself on stroke recovery, and be the son your father knows you are.
Avatar f tn Hello Sara, Yes I had a carotid artery dissection stroke. Its kind of...funny?(cant think of a better, describing word atm) I guess of how similar the side effects of the stroke were for us both. I had same migraines..and I am sooooo sorry that you have them to. They are HELL! The first year was the worste.
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 n tn i agree about yaz giving us headaches anxiety and panic attacks same thing happened to me and i was refered to a psychologist ive been fine all my life and after a while of taking yaz i began experiencing all of these!
Avatar n tn I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar n tn (not this one) Okay, now, my concern is the effcts after STOPPING yasmin. I understand that all bc pills are different and so are we women as far as side effects go. I have read postings about women who stopped taking yasmin and have experienced the following: - anxiety, panic attacks, heart palpitations and fluttering - depression - excessive weight gain - hair loss *I already have a prob. with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, so I am currently on medication.
Avatar f tn My MRI was clear, my EEG was abnormal and I also was told that I had mitral valve prolapse. This neurologist, diagnosed me with having a TIA (mini stroke) I was immediately called and was told to start taking a prescription blood thinner. He also put me on another medication because my homocystine levels were elevated. Devastation took over me. I was now dealing with worry about having a full blown stroke at the age of 36.
162948 tn?1205256292 does anyone know how long the effects of the hormone last on the endometrium? i'm panicking that if i do conceive, i'll miscarry too. any thoughts?
Avatar n tn I haven't heard of any long term risks regarding long term use. Dr's will typically start you on a higher dose and then taper down as long if you have no recurring arrhythmia. Along with Sotolol, you should be taking an anticoagulant like Coumadin or at the very least an antiplatelet like Aspirin. With Atrial Fib/Flutter there is an increased risk of stroke, so these 2 medications decrease your risk of suffering the catastrophic results of a stroke. Where did you have your procedures done?
Avatar f tn I hope she doesn't get any long term effects from it and I hope her baby and delivery will go well.
Avatar n tn 2) Are there any detrimental effects of taking a beta blocker long term (since I am only 30)? 3) I am used to exercising at a pretty high intensity (HR up to 170 when pushing, resintg HR around 65). I am obviously feeling fatigued from the beta blocker, so I probably will be limited with the exercise. I also don't want to cause any problems by exercising too hard (I haven't exercised since having the symptoms). Should I avoid "pushing it"?
