Mini stroke signs and symptoms for women

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke signs and symptoms for women


Avatar n tn I just wanted to add, that you know your body better than anyone else and if it was a TIA/Mini Stroke, those are temporary and usually do not show up on x-rays but people that do have TIA's have something like a 30% chance of having another TIA or actually stroke within the following year. So you really need to be aware of stroke symptoms and if you get any of these symptoms you need to go straight to the ER.
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 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 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. We cannot make a decision about another baby. I guess we want a sibling for our son, but I feel I will never be brave enough to have another pregnancy. I just cannot think about something happening during a pregnancy and leaving my son without his mom.
Avatar n tn in the heart which can travel to the vessels of the brain and possibly cause a stroke. Have you seen a Neurologist? Some of the symptoms you describe sound like Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Also, when you mention symptoms of weakness, fatigue and "reflux" I begin to worry that you may have some severe stomach irritation, possibly even to the point where you may have an ulcer and/or intestinal bleeding.
Avatar f tn my brother who's 31 is presently lying in hospital and has been there for the last 6 weeks, his symptoms sound similar to methonal poisoning which you mentioned. he started off with severe body ache, unsteady gait, malaise, lack of sleep and also dry/hard/cracked fingertips. he's also had epilepsy since the age of 8 and a brain tumor which was removed 6 months ago, i've been told his epilepsy & tumor are unrelated???? but since the op his fits have stopped.
Avatar n tn i even posted a question on this forum about all my symptoms and nobody answered it so i decided to look for myslef and i found this! this is crazy! i makes me feel a little better knowing that i am not the only one out there though. since ive had the mirena i have had bad cramping on my left side during and after sex, no sex drive what so ever, im tired all the time, i eat like crazy, acne is not bad, but its still there, and i have all the pregnancy symptoms.
Avatar n tn But, my encouragement for all is that it does get better very soon, usually 3 days and the symptoms start to go away. I feel like I am full of cement and can barely move, no energy, cant sleep, all the normal stuff that happens in WD. I was at one time given Oxy and I elected to go cold turkey. This is a very bad idea and please don't ever try OXY by going cold turkey, it is worse than just about anything you can think of.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am in the UK and relate to these symptoms very closely. I train for triathlon and various other sports and suffer with the 'flu like symptom' frequently, often pushing through. I put it down to picking up viral infections but often i have no build up of catarrgh or other common cold/flu symptoms except fatigue, headache and malaise. Please could you specify the dose of probiotic taken - i beleive you can take them by the 4/6/8 billion etc as i am willing to try anything!
Avatar n tn It's really frusterating to hear that there is no help out there for minor patients yet as we must all be making up the same exact symptoms since the doctors all contest that their are no known symptoms for minor patients. I'm 18 and I experience excessive tiredness and also the cold hands and feet which I never quite equated with the disease until now. I also suffer from dizzy spells and I was wondering if anyone else also had these.
Avatar n tn For all of you looking for a list of anxiety symptoms here is a really good website for you to check out: Click on the Anxiety Symptoms Page and scroll down. You won't believe what symptoms it can cause!!!
10947 tn?1281407852 After an average of more than six years, the participants were tested for signs of cognitive decline using a Mini Mental State Exam and a clock drawing test. Average scores for both tests were significantly higher for participants following either of the Mediterranean diets than those following the low-fat diet. Similarly, a study from the University of Alabama at Birmingham found that a Mediterranean diet might also help preserve memory and cognitive ability.
Avatar n tn He went in to emergency ( 3 mos ago ) with a pulsating behind one eye, His BP was monitered for 3 hrs and it was determined that he has Chronic HBP and he is now on a med for it. At that time they informed him that Chronic High BP could cause damage and memory loss .
Avatar f tn How did you manage to convince yourself it's anxiety and nothing serious?
Avatar n tn Do any of these symptoms go away after taking it for a few months or is this it?? Oh and regarding acne....I am 38 and my face and chest looks like that of a teens - it's disgusting!
Avatar n tn god i didn't realise just how many other women this was affecting! i'm 20 and had my period for 7 weeks. I've had stomach cramps a lot of days and havn't eaten much for the last few days because i feel so nauseus. I went to the doctor a few weeks agoo and they did a thyroid test which came back negative so i'm going back next week to try and sort it out because it's driving me crazy! i've also been getting hot flush kind of things.. has that happened to anyone else??
Avatar n tn My name is Lianne and I am 18 years old. I have suffered from migranes for years, and couln't find the source. I was put on depakote, but it made me sleep all the time (literally) so my doctor put me on topamax. I haven't had any migranes, I'm not dreadfully tired and as an added bonus, it is already helping me to lose weight. I have struggled with weight all of my life, so knowing that this can help is wonderful. I eat smart and exercise, but before, I slept all the time.
147426 tn?1317269232 Precursor for MS. I have been on rebif for 4 months now and some symptoms have left,but the waiting period for a DX has left some permanant disabilities.But at this point they are tolerable. Even though I was on the rebif I relapsed in march and had a 5 day hodpital stay. I'm in relapse no# 2,but hoping in time that the symptoms will slow down.Gonna start another round of steroids soon.

Avatar n tn I just think it is important for Cheryl especially, but also for everyone who struggles with hormone-related symptoms, to know that it is possible to search high and low for a diagnosis that explains your symptoms and never find it. Why? Because a person can have symptoms that do not seem logically related to what is really wrong, and this not entirely logical pattern of symptoms is not in the medical literature (although it may be, someday).
712042 tn?1254572809 This Sleep Study result, on top of my current heart state with MVD, put me at great risk for a heart attack, stroke and mini-strokes-TIA (transient ischemic attacks) all in the absence of any CAD. This also explains why I'm so tired and with problematic chest pain even with the amount of nitro I wear each day. My heart was not getting any rest and was under a great deal of stress around the clock.
Avatar m tn Like I say, though, I've trauled the internet for my specific symptoms, and nothing really comes to light, and my retinolagists says there's nothing he can see (though i would have prefered an angiogram, just to make sure). Oh well.
Avatar f tn The dentist had to go close to the nerve to properly clean and medicate in order to (hopefully) avoid a root canal. That was on 4/14 and I also got gassed for the procedure. Bottom left lip and chin still numb - dentist said it could take about a week to go away. Crossing my fingers...
Avatar n tn I have noticed after his surgery that his anxiety level is extremely high. He lashes out for the smallest things and everything seems to get to him, especially anything that involves me. He drinks more wine to relax and I think it is having an adverse effect. When I mention that he might try some relaxation techniques to quell his anxiety he "goes off". He says "the doctor says I shouldn't be stressed and you are adding to it".
Avatar n tn I have had this pain off and on for 3 years now. I have been tested for endometriosis and other STD's. All negative. My GYN has come to the conclusion that i have cysts on my overies and it is just the leakage that is causing the cramping and pain. That may be true, but why does my anus hurt? I feel like i am being stabbed with a knife! I went through child labor with no meds and this is comparable.
Avatar n tn what's ur symptoms for chiari and how were u diagnosed?
Avatar n tn Loss of vision in part or all of both eyes Double vision Vertigo (spinning sensation) Numbness or tingling Nausea and vomiting Slurred speech Loss of coordination, dizziness or confusion Trouble swallowing A drop attack — sudden generalized weakness Because these symptoms may be warning signs of a stroke, anyone experiencing them should seek emergency medical care. Immediate treatment can increase the chance of a full recovery.
Avatar n tn i had my period on aug 18 for 4 days and then 2 weeks later i started bleeding bright red heavily and cramping in my lower abdomen. It has been gradually getting lighter but i have passed 2 long blood clots already. I feel stretching and bloating in my belly and i have been so irritable lately. Could i be pregnant? I dont have insurance and need to know if anyone knows of a cheap doctor or clinic that i can go to in miami fl.
Avatar n tn By eliminating all dairy from my diet for a few weeks and adding some probiotics my symptoms subsided and finally were eliminated. Needless to say I changed doctors. So the bottom line is not to give up but to push forward and find the right doctor. I know someone who found the reason for her problem after 6 years of symptoms. There has to be some doctor out there that know what is going on. If I find a resolution I will be back here to let everyone know, that's for sure.
Avatar f tn ( Just also for a side note, ecstacy and stimulants seem to strengthen these symptoms for one reason or another,sometimes alcohol, which caused me to think it was a heart related problem. Ive had blood tests done, EKG, nothing heart related as they could see. They told me it is just bad GERD. (which to be quite honest i hope it is.) any help on this would be greatly appreciated, as I'm sure theres 1000 other people that have this problem exactly.
