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


Avatar n tn Hello! Just wanted to put in my two cents. Ok I had a mini stroke (TIA) and this is what I suggest according to your symptoms. Maybe you only had a TIA, where there is no damage.
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 During my fifth month of pregnancy I did have something like a mini stroke while I was driving. I spent a week in the hospital and was immediately put on bed rest. He was born 2 weeks early by a planned c-section and was born not breathing. He was under weight and still has health problems like asthma, allergies, and an immunity defense abnormality. My body suffered as well. They were unsure if I could even carry this baby full term, let alone deliver.
Avatar n tn My husband and I would like to have a child, but are unsure about my health issues and pregnancy. My stroke was due to a dissection in my left vertebral artery and I have been told that it has healed completely. However, I experience dizziness and unwell feelings around menstruation, which I'm sure is due to hormones, which makes me nervous about pregnancy. Any information would be helpful. I have looked on the internet and have not really found anything.
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 The metabolism of aspartame in the human body and the proposed toxicities from its metabolic components have concerned a lot of people and have been the emphasis of many post-marketing surveillance studies.

Avatar n tn I have been spotting on and off for a week or so now and have been having wierd symptoms in my breast and abdominal area.

Avatar n tn Try doing some outdoor walking and jogging and compare if you have the same flu like symptoms in Gym and outside. If you only have them in the gym then you are allergic to something, you have to find that out and prevent it. Take care!
Avatar n tn My hands and feet are almost always cold (in fact, they are right now), and I fall in and out of relatively mild depression. I have been told that carrying the thalassemia trait has no obvious symptoms, but I've been poking around forums a little bit, and the symtoms I experience seem to be fairly common. I'm still looking for ways to lessen the intensity of these symptoms, but for me I've found that maintaining physical activity helps, as well as not oversleeping, or overeating.
Avatar f tn I am 50 years old, work out on a regular basis (twice a week lifting weights which include arm and shoulder workouts), yearly physicals show I am in perfect health, and I only take calcium and vitamin D. I started having these same symptoms with weakness in my arms and numbness like described by others. I went to see a chiropractor because I thought it may be a pinched nerve. He took x-rays which showed the vertabrae in my neck are compressed a little more than normal. This was the problem.
Avatar n tn I just reread my post and realized I didn't post all my symptoms. I basically have constant pressure in my head and ears that varies between annoying and feeling like it's about to burst. The throbbing headaches are not constant but happen quite a bit the more I move my head. Sometimes I feel a squeezing sensation in my head. I sometimes get tinnitus and my hearing seems to go temporarily quiet.

Avatar n tn I was diagnosed about 9 years ago. I have an arachnoid cyst in my brain (left temporal lobe) and had a shunt inserted in 1998. I've also had 4 mini strokes. They were cause by hypercoagulable cerebrovascular disease with a circulating IGM (44) ( anticardiolopid antibody syndrome). These have all been stable for the last 10 years and I have not had any major problems. I also have an autoimmune disorder which causes inflamation in my body, especially in my legs.
Avatar f tn Angellore, The last comment I posted was not my symptoms, it was a list of anxiety symptoms I got off of It's actually only about 1/4 of the list but I copied and pasted it onto my post to show everyone that included in that anxiety symptoms list was "joint popping and cracking sounds, an increase of".

Avatar n tn It scares me, especially since my husband had brain surgery less than 2 years ago- (symptoms completely different of course) I am 35 years old, the only time I remember hitting my head really hard is when I was in elementary school and I fell and hit my head on a tile floor. I have had a history of passing out and having seizures but the doctors never figured out for sure what caused it and it hasn't happened for a few years.
Avatar n tn I have always been very in control and dependant and then these panic attacks started. I just finished my 2nd pack of pills and that is the only thing that I have done different. The attacks came within the 1st wk or so of starting the pack.,so I have no idea how long before they go away. My OBYGN thinks that there is something more physcological going on with me but I am telling all who reads this that it is this PILL YAZ!!!!
Avatar n tn I have been taking a regimen of vitamins that has helped a lot in my symptoms and comfort. I every now and then get really bad itching, but not as much. The combo is acidophillus, garlic, grapefruit seed extract, Vitamin C, and echinacea. I don't know the exact mg, but just look it up. Something that recently happend to me was an abnormal result on a pap smear. Does anyone know if this can be from GSB? This is soemthing new, so I haven't had a chance to ask my gyno yet. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn for depression, and then in early 2005 had another stroke. He was then started on Topamax. He has lost 40 lbs, and he cannot afford to lose any more. But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss. I think maybe my blood pressure will also decrease, and I am sure my feet and joints won't hurt anymore if I can get this extra 60 lbs off me. As I said, I am 66 years young, and am interested if any other young seniors are in my shoes.
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms in my lower left leg. I Googled the problem and found your comments. I am going to the Dr. on Monday. I will post what ever I find.
Avatar n tn I have had a hysterectomy in '95' and then my ovaries out in '96' so those weren't options in this case. I find it amazing that we can have these symptoms but no diagnosis. I don't deal well with Dr.s who say that the test came out negative isn't that wonderful. Yea well thats great so where is the pain coming from. I am starting to doubt the medical industry. In as much as technology today is phenominal, people are still in pain and they cannot seem to find the reason for the pain.
Avatar n tn Have stopped upper body workouts without improvement in symptoms. Going to ditch the underwire bra for a few weeks and see what happens.

We thought it was great... we often DID have to detox people from opiates who had genuine pain. Great that at least we could do something about the pain while we tried to get them through withdrawal. Second day after we had been giving a couple folks ultram, started noticing that nurses didn't need to go find patients when time for their next dose of ultram...

Avatar n tn When my endocrinologist diagnosed subclinical hypothyroidism (TSH level of 4.11 and free T4 in the normal range), the symptoms I was complaining about the most energetically were symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Despite my fear that levothyroxine would make parts of my difficult situation even worse, the medication has eased the paradoxical symptoms at the same pace at which it is easing the more usual symptoms of hypothyroidism. The advice to be treated by an endo.
