Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke signs

stroke

Avatar f tn The numbness and tingling, troubled speech have disappeared but his headache has not. Could this be the signs of a mini stroke? Please help! No, my nephew did not go to the hospital which I freaked out about because I just got off the phone with my mother about the whole situation. People failed to inform me til' now. Had I known, I would have insisted he went to the ER.
Avatar m tn although she seemed to have suffered a mini stroke (although doctors did not say this exactly), is there anything we can do to make sure this does not happen again? She is slightly overweight with a BMI of 27-28, and for the past weeks we have started to exercise more than before to become healthier... We eat generally good and a well balanced diet, but I am trying to make her completely quit food high in fat/sugars.
Avatar n tn my husband was in hospital with a possible "mini stroke" He is scheduled to have a MRA in two days. He is still a little "off" in his balance. One dr. thought it was Vertigo.. But he didnt have all the signs. How can we tell if he might be having another stroke?
Avatar n tn Hi, Sinusitis develops when the mucous membranes of your upper respiratory tract — the nose, pharynx, sinuses and throat — become inflamed. The swelling obstructs the sinus openings and prevents mucus from draining normally. This creates a moist environment conducive to infection. The symptoms are usually head ache,facial pain,nasal congestion.It does not cause blurred vision/speech or numbness.
Avatar m tn Hey guys i believe that i had a mini stroke this past friday but know on eis giving me the time of the day. the doctor was in and out within5 minutes. two of my fingers went numb followed by blurred vision. i went to call 911 and then couldnt speak and also had a hard time thinking. this was also followed my throwing up. since friday ive stuttered a little here and there. any thought as if you think it was a mini stroke?????
Avatar n tn Hi,The symptoms you have described,sound like stroke related.I myself and my husband both have mini strokes.It sounds like,with the numbness and pain he has suffered a stroke or min strokes.When he went to the emergency room,did they do an mri?He needs to been by a neurologist,one that knows what their doing.Make an appointment as soon as possible,as soon as you read this would be preferrable.It might be several things that causing this.Please make an appointment as possible though.
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?
784336 tn?1236262076 a week on my family and i are not happy with the outcome as my nanna is still feeling off it within her self with lack of energy and feeling very weak, how do we get the doctore to run tests to see if she has suffered a mini stroke TIA please help as we are at the doctors tomorrow at 2.40 and we do not want to fobbed off as we really do not want to have to wait till another attack of worse the loss of someone we love and care for.
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 She has chronic edema in both lower legs, and is now using comp stockings, and has NOT been active or walking at all for more than that year. Does the impression #1 mean she's had a mini-stroke, or has MS, or that there is something progressive that's responsible for her heavy, weak leg/foot? Is there a treatment for what she has and if so, is this something that's worsen? HISTORY: Patient with slowly progressive leftsided weakness.
Avatar m tn The doc who first said he had a stroke and had the tia was now saying no signs of stroke and no reason to worry? The doc and nuro are the same from the 1st incident 10 years ago. They do want to do another mri, cat scan saying it has been 10 yrs but wtf. Tell a person they had a stroke, medicate them for ten years for it and then say nope, no stroke....... My dad has been unable to get any kind of decent health insurance because of this. I told him to find new doc for second opinion.....
Avatar f tn Continued consumption of large amounts of alcohol increases blood pressure, which is a primary risk factor for stroke. My husband had 3 TIAs (mini-strokes) at age 40. His bp before that was 180/120. His dr prescribed meds, and they only brought it down to 160/100-110. He quit drinking finally after a violent incident (or told me he quit, actually was still sneaking it occassionally but at a much lower level) and his bp dropped to 110/60.
Avatar n tn I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a stroke in the cerebellum and signs of a mini stroke that they classified as 'old'. I fortunately did not have ongoing loss of speech, or weakness in limbs etc...but have suffered from weird dizziness and electric shock feelings in my head. They seem to get better - but then get wrose again....Dr's are saying it is maybe anxiety --but is not. I have had anxiety before and these are different.
Avatar f tn They last about 20 minutes. Blood tests, CT scans, and mri/mra showed no signs of a stroke. Experts said these episodes could have been mini strokes. The neurologists said they could have been seizures. Every time I sneeze I'm so afraid that it will happen again. Does any one have any idea of what is causing this problem?
532476 tn?1214520784 Hi, The FAST test is an easy way to recognise and remember the signs of stroke or a TIA. Using the FAST test involves asking three simple questions. If you have a problem with any of these functions, dial triple zero (000) for an ambulance immediately. FAST stands for: Facial weakness – can the person smile; have their mouth or eyes drooped? Arm weakness – can the person raise both arms? Speech difficulty – can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?
Avatar f tn His chest gets tight sometimes and sometimes his toes go numb out of no where. Could this be a mini heart attack? Or stroke? He is very stubborn about going to the doctor so im looking for someone's input on what might be happening! Thanks ahead of time!!
Avatar n tn But if it will rule out MS I will have it done. He said that there not signs of a Stroke. I asked him about the TIA's, he said those are "Mini Strokes" and they do not cause damage. I would have to disagree with him on that tho. My c-spine MRI is showing bulding disc (which is nothing new had them for several years) and I was suppose to have an EEG today as well but got the dates all messed up on that and it's not til next Tuesday.
Avatar n tn I cannot give you a clinical diagnosis over the internet, and the information you provide is limited. On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
Avatar n tn first and foremost it does sound like a stroke ( my grandmother had quite a few so I know the signs) Second and most important I believe if I read correclty you are on the pill. The pill can cause strokes. Please please go to your GYN and get off them. Ask your GYN for referalls about any testing you can have. Get copies of all your films and reports as with the incompetentancy of the medical profession films can be read wrong. But please look into the pill.
Avatar n tn hi i had tia or mini stroke july 5. my speech were slurred and vision blurry. i have recovered well except my speech is somewhat off. my doctor said i will be on coumadin for six months. he started me out with a high dose but not i'm down to 2mg. i just try to be careful and know that if anything else happen that its in our heavenly Fathers hand.
Avatar n tn Last January, 2006, I had a mini stroke. I was 36 years old. I recovered quickly and there has been no side effects. I was taking birth control pills and so the dr.'s say that must be the cause. They can find no other reason for it. I now take 1 aspirin daily. I have 1 son who is 3 and we are wondering about another pregnancy. I'm terrified! My neurologist and obgyn say it would be low risk for another mini stroke. I feel I was probably "no risk" this time last year but it happened.
Avatar n tn It is nonsense that incontinence after a stroke is forever. There is more nonsense going on about how to care for the stroke damaged elderly than I can believe. So never give up hope.
Avatar n tn My mom had good health and no warning signs before the stroke, not even a headache, my dad found her this way mid-morning. The neurosurgeon did not offer much hope for us to survive the stroke nor in her recovery. She has already beat the odds. My mom was in ICU for 3 weeks and step-down 1 week and in rehab hospital for two months now. I have come to learn the dr.'s don't like or really now prognosis on recovery because everyone recovers differently.
Avatar m tn She didn't have any obvious facial weakness that I could see or slurred speech so I don't think she was having a big stroke, but I wondered if she was having a mini/minor stoke of some kind or near a stroke? I know of someone who had a stroke some years earlier, I had been sat in a class and the lecturer didn't seem able to, couldn't focus or move onto the next thing to talk about but other than that showed no signs of stroke, but had one.
Avatar f tn tell him how much u love him and tell him to fight.... dad now can communicate, is able to walk unaided with no signs that he even had a stroke other than short term memory difficulties and a ;less commanding voice...Yes they call him miracle man but miracles do happen... my dad is living proof and my HERO........

I'm especially interested in learning what mini-strokes are. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. d.
Avatar n tn Hi I'm terribly upset. My dad has just had a stroke. He's 72 and is currently in hospital virtually asleep full time. We know that it is caused by a blood clot stemming from Atrial Fibrillation and it has affected his left side (No vision, left arm and leg) The doctor has painted a very bleak picture which was very devastating and right now at this moment it just seems that there is no hope. Can anyone re-assure me that if he survives there is some hope for quality of life.
677292 tn?1226291236 At the time she exhibited some signs and symptoms that pointed towards stroke, but her story just didn't necessarily gel altogether (I'm an ex Paramedic). Unfortunately my Daughter at times struggles with the truth, she lives with my ex wife in another State. The end result that time after a battery of tests, including CT's and MRI's was that nothing showed up, my Daughter's symptoms resolved after 2-3 weeks and life progressed.
