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 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.
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 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 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 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 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 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!
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 m tn It like stroke symptoms that happen several times a day now that stared in March with orginally what the doctor thought was a TIA (mini stroke) from a blood clot from A-fib but not so sure now. Did get surgey for A-fib and that went great. So I have left sided weakness, slurred speech, facial numbness, dragging left leg and turn foot inward.
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 f tn I know something was happening but just not sure what. Some people said it could be a mini stroke. Has anyone dealt with this before?
Avatar f tn Why were you put on Plavix in the beginning... for heart attack or stroke? Absolutely going off of it can lead to a mini-stroke/TIA, but going odd wont CAUSE one. Unfortunately you have to go off before a biopsy as it makes your blood thinner and there is too much risk of bleeding. Don't worry too much about the TIA, most have no long standing effects unless you have a LOT of them. So you want to go back on the Plavix and DON'T miss any doses! It should work right away.
Avatar f tn My doctor said I had a mini stroke. I had a cat scan and blood test that showed a lesion on my brain. My doctor the had me get an MRI brain scan which his nurse said came back normal. Then why do I still feel like my brain has been scrambled ,and I just don't feel good overall?
7163794 tn?1457366813 myself to get up? Is this in my head, or is it possible there are long term effects to pain meds and suboxone use? Could it just be me? Has anyone else felt this?
Avatar f tn Does anyone know the long term effects of abusing pain killers? I found out today that a friend of my husbands actually had seizures because of how long she was on vicodin. Just curious.
Avatar n tn What are the long term effects? Now that the issue is resolved. what can we do to head off any long term problems from this?
Avatar m tn s dopamine structure and that i will never be happy again or feel as good as before i began the drug use. can anybody tell me what some of the long-term effects maybe and weather i will be able to fully recover. Did i permantely damage my brain's structure? Please, i need some medical information on this. I have been looking on the internet but not much exists.
Avatar n tn i dont know if these are possible long term effects of the drugs or something else. everyone keeps saying im having anxiety attacks but these feelings come when i am calm and seem very serious. if anyone has any advice on whats going on ,whether drug related or not,, or any advice on good doctors to go to PLEASE let me know immediatly.
Avatar f tn BUT, I have to take it or I am in pain. So try not to worry so much about the long term effects when you are trying to survive today. If you are worried about this I would talk to my doctor and let them know what you are experiencing and there may be something they can do differently. Just dont stop any seizure med without a doctors help. Hope you feel better..
Avatar m tn I have no symptoms and feel great; I am 54 and wondering if HEP C would kill me or if the treatment could cause long term effects that could ruin my health. The longest living male in my family was my father 86 and had slow progressive dementia the last 10 years.
