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 n tn A few days ago an acquaintance, a 49 year old woman, experienced a sudden episode of memory loss where, when she heard her grandchild's name mentioned in conversation, had no idea who she was or that she had just visited with her an hour earlier. Since then, she has no short term memory older than five minutes. She seems to lose everything as fast as it happens. Her long term memory is apparently in tact. She knows her family, recognizes her grandchild when she sees her.

Avatar n tn Then in 2006 I had a heart transplant and again was on the bypass about 4 more hours. I do have memory problems. Are these after 4 years most likely going to permanent memory loss?
Avatar m tn Can someone tell me if perhaps I had a stroke or mini or silent heart attack? If I did, since this happened about 2 1/2 years ago, is there any point in getting tested for this? Is there even a way to tell if I ever had a stroke? Any advice would be helpful.
Avatar m tn My sister now has had four "episodes". The first brought on by gagging which lead to a severe headache, stars etc. four days later she ended up in intensive care with a "brain bleed". She was sent out as just fine. Since then she has had three other "happenings" which lead to confussion, loss of memory which is regained after a few hours.

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 n tn or what is known as transient ischemic attacks, there are other symptoms present such as dizziness, temporary memory loss, transient verbal disturbances, etc. Your GP was probably concerned that, given your advanced age, you suffered from a stroke. If you indeed suffered from a stroke, it would be advisable to have an MRI done and treatment measures initiated. You should talk to your doctor about this. Hope this helps.

Avatar f tn So beginning two+ years ago, I have noticed I have bad short term memory loss, have a hard time comprehending, understanding, staying focused. I now have OCD, ADD, depression and severe anxiety. I have patience and anger problems and my IQ is not nearly what it used to be. I also get very lightheaded & have migraines often, lost when driving and have been in several vehicle accidents in the past couple years. I have had two nervous breakdowns in the past two years also.

Avatar f tn My boyfriend of 3 years suffered a stroke late November 07 after surviving cancer, he was 29. The doctors said the damage in my boyfriend's brain is permanent, the stroke was not severe enough to handicap him but it has affected his memory and mental capacity. They are unsure if he'll ever recover his memory fully. He is recovering slowly but still has trouble remembering people including me.
Avatar n tn Hello. I've been suffering from severe migraine headaches for 9 yrs, they have continued to get worse. I've taken feverfew,vitamins, doctor prescribed drugs and the whole works, nothing seems to get rid of them or subside them. I've had an MRI and its shown that I've had 4 mini-strokes. I've noticed with migraines plus the strokes that I've suffered memory loss, speech problems, loss of vision, numbness to my limbs, everyday motor skills lost, etc.

Avatar f tn TIA is a mini stroke and you are right when you say that it could well bring on a full fledged stroke. Being a mini stroke it may or may not produce ischemic changes in the brain. However you definitely need to be careful. Please avoid all the risk factors for stroke like high BP, smoking, alcoholism, obesity and high cholesterol. Make sure your body weight is under control and exercise regularly. Avoid foods high in calories and salt.
