Mini stroke low blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke low blood pressure


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 I have very low blood pressure, normal cholesteral, etc. They even looked to see if I had a blood abnormality, which I guess I don't since I haven't heard about it. I assumed they were TIA's because I got over them quickly, but I was told they were "full blown" strokes. I can relate to how you are feeling completely as I feel the same way. Just take an aspirin and resume a normal life??? I feel like a walking time bomb!!
Avatar f tn well to be really sure you should ask a Neurologist. as I'm aware of even small ischemia are detectable in ct/mri scan. how long did the symptoms last? strokes don't last very long they either regress or kill you. there should have been more going on, paralysis of the face, bell's palsy maybe. weakness in one arm or whole side of the body. a stroke that impairs your speech wouldn't have been so "mini".
Avatar f tn I do have some weird things that happen to me besides this, like ringing in the ears, confused/dizzy/low blood pressure, feeling deja vu almost daily, mixing words, and lots of entopic phenomena like floaters/phosphenes and I can see form constant almost always. I also get some synsesthesia like experiences but have never had a formal diagnosis. Also writing this post this morning has been kind of hard, lots of spelling/grammar mistakes that I don't usually make.
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?
1038794 tn?1252925252 They done another MRI scan and injected me with something so they could see blood vessels. The scan came back clear. My blood pressure is still sky high Higest reading yest afternoon was 200/137. They gonna get me back on Labetalol. The doctor came round this morning to examine me again. He said something about the nervous system and brain nerves not sending right signals.. Not sure what he would mean by this. He said i will have another scan 2moro and that i will have some injection again.
Avatar n tn There is one school of thought that proposes a phase of dilation followed by constriction of brain blood vessels as the mechanism of migraine aura. Continuing along this same line of reason, there is a theoretical risk for stroke if blood flow becomes compromised to a particular part of the brain as a result of blood vessel constriction. A reduction in blood flow would theoretically result in a decrease in oxygen delivery to the brain as oxygen is bound to hemoglobin in the bloodstream.
Avatar f tn The EKG, CT-Scan and blood work all came back normal and later during the week, so did the ultrasound on my neck arteries and the echo on my heart. My internist said it could be a mini-stroke but the symptoms persist a week later, with complete numbness of the tongue and lips. He told me it might be a side effect of my anti-depressant, Pristiq, and has taken the dose down from 100mg to 50mg. I am to report in next week to let him know what my symptoms are doing.
Avatar n tn Hello dear, You probably had a Transient Ischaemic Attack or a mini stroke caused by the temporary disturbance of blood supply to a restricted area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that usually persists for less than 24 hours.The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision ; difficulty speaking (aphasia); weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis); and numbness or tingling (paresthesia), usually on one side of the body.
Avatar n tn you may have been dehydrated (and your blood pressure was too low for you). why have you lost so much weight? are you exercising too much or on a special restrictive diet? do you get enough sleep? there is a good chance that this was a mild faint spell rather than a mini-stroke but you won't know until you have a full evaluation. probably you should get a heart evaluation as well as a doppler test of your brain and neck arteries to make sure you don't have any blockages.
Avatar n tn dizzyness, resulting in lower blood pressure and heart beat which is still low, for example i walked to the drs who checked me blood pressure once, it was 140/85 since i had walked it there but my heart rate dropped to 50's, its never been this low, i have been tested for the laying down and standing blood pressure test too i really am not sure whats going on, can anyone give me some help/advice on this?what can be the cause? what should i get tested?
1438751 tn?1285093678 I was wondering what the neighbors were thinking and my poor son was crying... They took my vitals and said my blood pressure was fine.... I have always been Extremely low to begin with... My husband always trips out by that.... but what ever... they look at my meds cabinet where we have like a year supply of everything( I have cancer by the way ) we get out meds through our insurance via. mail .... then they change their whole tune...... they say.... " you are not having a stroke....
Avatar n tn I am a 44 year old woman in good health - low cholesterol, low blood pressure, normal weight, and not taking oral contraceptives nor do I smoke - and I had a stroke 3 months ago. I went to go to bed, and felt a weird sensation in my head, and stood up and started falling down, felt very disoriented, slurred speech, unctrolled movements in limbs, vomiting, and alot of pressure and load noises in my ears.
Avatar f tn Chances are, if you receive one that is significantly lower, than you’ve just done the calculations incorrectly. However, if the pulse pressure is genuinely low, it reflects a low stroke volume, which means your heart is not pumping out the amount of blood it is supposed to. This could be because of a very serious problem, such as congestive heart disorder or shock." Excerpt from "Pulse Pressure....The Other Blood Pressure!
Avatar f tn PVC's lower your blood pressure especially if you have the frequently.
Avatar m tn Weakness of muscles suggests mini stroke or transient ischaemic attack,you should get a second opinion and monitor the blood pressure levels to avoid further complications. Preventive medicines like aspirin should be given.
Avatar f tn When riding to ER when car would stop I felt like I was still moving. awful feeling. Blood pressure was 165/105. Dr. ordered another CT scan and this one showed change from night before. He said it is not uncommon for a bleed to not show right away. He said my symptoms corresponded to the area shown in the scan and I was to be admitted. He also ordered an MRI/MRA to make sure the bleed was not from an anyuresm. Ater test came back hospitalist dr came in and told me that I was to go home.
Avatar n tn I'm almost back to normal now living my life which I was before the stroke. I'm on clopidagrel to thin my blood which I need to be on forever. I want to hear from anyone in the same age bracket - to talk to.
Avatar n tn right now, you should monitor your blood pressure frequently, this is a major key in keeping healthy and stroke free. its probably not what you wanna hear but maybe you should wait a while longer to try and conceive, you need time for yourself right now. your body might need a little time to heal. in whatever your desicion, good luck!
Avatar n tn They do not know why I had the stroke. I was healthy non smoking teen who was very active in sports. Low blood Pressure. The two possible causes of my stroke are I was on the Pill, and I suffered some neck strain the day before the stoke. The legion on my spine went from C5 to T3. It took me months to learn how to walk again. I still have some paralysis (Right Hand) Weak Right leg and torso. I do not know if I am going to have a Natural Birth or a C Section.
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 The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down. She is currently in a rehab hospital (March 18) with paralysis on the right side (arm and leg) and has aphasyia - she understands us but has a hard time getting her words out (she does put small phases together at times).
Avatar n tn The puzzle is that I don't have any of the risk factors. I'm 61, low blood pressure, no cholesterol, low weight, non smoker and well exercised. I will be having an MRI next week but I'm wondering if there are other conditions than the normal stroke risk factors that can lead to these events. I am aware of the link with migraines, are there any other possibilities we should be looking at? Thanks.

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.
1705731 tn?1307640333 they called the paramedics and they took me to the hospital. on the way there they took my blood and it my blood sugar was 75, low but not too low. they gave me a shot of muscle relaxer and it seem to help. by the time i got to the hospital all tingling was gone but in my lips. my lips were paralyzed for the longest time to the point i couldnt speak or smile. i set in the waiting room for about an hour and no one had yet to see me or treat me so i ended up leaving cause i felt fine.
Avatar n tn 2 MRI's showed negative for stroke. Also blood work negative for Myasthenia Gravis or Multiple Sclerosis. Hospital said too much time had past, and only suggested possible mini-stroke. Tests did NOT confirm any heart damage. Only one small blood clot found in neck, but too small to do any surgery. January 18, 2007 Progressive Weakness and slurred speech.
