stroke

Avatar n tn He went to urgent care again, where they said it could have been a mini-stroke, but to go to the er, if it gets worse. The next day, he woke up feeling the same sensation, only now in his leg as well. He went to the er where it got worse to where it was very painful and his chest was in pain. He ended up having to be admitted to the hospital where he seems to be getting worse.
2186126 tn?1384961026 It is so hard when our friends get old, it breaks your heart to see them sick. My dog is 15, and doing okay right now for her age, but I know at anytime something can come up. We also have 7 old cats, and one of them was just diagnosed with heart disease. They give you so much pleasure and love, but it is so hard in the end. I wish you luck with helping Sasha, shes a lucky dog to be so loved.
Avatar f tn I had an ischematic stroke in August 2006, when aged 51, and since then have suffered numerous neurological 'episodes' which were initially diagnosed by the local hospital as TIA's (mini-strokes) but which I'm now informed are a rare kind of migraine. I don't get the blinding headaches that I'd normally expect with a migraine, but I do get the same sorts of symptoms you'd expect with a stroke - head floppiness, slurred speech, inability to flex the fingers of my left hand etc.
Avatar n tn This a great thread and I hope it continues on as it has gone on for years! I care for animals in various end-of-life conditions. I am currently helping a mom with her nearly 17 y/o chihuahua. She has stopped most of her heart meds and has not returned to the drastic CHF symptoms (no-one knows why). But she is getting more quiet and eating and drinking less and less. Without critical symptoms, it is even harder to "take your dog in.
Avatar n tn now she can't even get up without her back legs giving way. We don't know if she might have had a mini stroke or if it is an episode of vestibular disease. She still can follow our movements, recognize us, eat, and drink. As for bowel moments, I think she knows that she has to go but simply can't reach the door in time as a result of her reduced mobility. Any advice or insight on what steps we should taske would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn Now you are going to tape the key in a small heavy stock of paper and fold it over and tape it shut (just like a mini greeting card) place it in an envelope, put your own address on it and mail it!!!!!!! you wanna make sure the key is taped strait up and down in the heavy paper not sideways (because mail machines bend envelopes) and if your safe key has a molded black end on it take it to a key maker and get a totally flat key made! and throw away the other keys! only have one!
Avatar f tn At that time, she was active and doing her thing - bolting from window to window in the car, barking at dogs on the sidewalk, energetic as usual. Everything was just the way it always is. By the time I got around to giving her the bath, she seemed a little withdrawn. Downright mopey. Although a good bath, and the toweling off she gets afterward are normally stimulating for her, she came in and went to sleep.
572651 tn?1531002957 That meant Bomber, his new partner, would also be living in the house with us. K-9 dogs are also very much a part of their families. But Bomber is a 100 lb German Shepherd ... he is generally very docile around the house (unless someone he doesn't know comes to the door or breaches the perimeter of our property, lol), but we just were not comfortable introducing a small bird into the equation. Plus, Cosmo was used to being out of his cage whenever I was home.
Avatar n tn do you hear a high pitch noise?? aura symptoms typically after a migraine!! Or anyone sometimes have pressure in the ears or in the head?? see a neurologist this is a constant migraine...ever notice some days being better than others...now the cause probably a lot of things...cell phone use now that we are all smart phones looking at the screens a lot is causing eye strains..computer use, how many stare at a computer for hours?? food...why hell yes look at what we all eat..caffeine? sure..
Avatar m tn What this meant was that my esophagus (the top of my stomach) had been widened and could no longer hold the acid in my stomach in place. Every time I felt the same symptoms as you all been describing (my heart dropping), it was due to the acid rushing up in my esophagus and coming back down.
Avatar f tn I take phenergan myself for constant nausea, and discovered late in the game that dogs can also take phenergan. It didn't work quite as well as the reglan, but at that point we tried anything we could get our hands on. Over the counter Dramamine for motion sickness can be tried as it is metabolized in the liver - got that info from an ER vet nearby.
Avatar n tn I too am having this strange wet, warm sensation on my inner left thigh. It's been going on for the last month or so. It will happen somtimes only a few times a day or as much as 3 or 4 times an hour and lasts only few seconds. As best as I can determine it doesn't happen while I'm sleeping. SO....I did some checking and as many have already mentioned, this symptom can sometimes mean a potential blood clot.
Avatar n tn FYI - I don't however have the smell when watching tv or when I am in front of the computer - it is ALL DAY LONG. Someone also mentioned other symptoms etc. I have had no colds, my thyroid is perfect, I eat super healthy (vegan), dont use deodorant (no I am not a hippie), I dont feel like i have a sinus infection (feel pretty good actually), have not taken an antibiotic in over 8+ years...
Avatar n tn Left untreated, a magnesium deficiency can lead to more life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, stroke, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and others. Magnesium's role in energy production. One of the primary roles of magnesium is to activate the adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy storage molecule, to create and store energy. Without energy, there is no life. Magnesium's role in relaxing muscles.
Avatar f tn The man said I was too young for a mini stroke (untrue) and really wouldn't consider it. After all I'm in good health. When he gave me normal routine exam, touch his fingers my nose etc I passed perfectly.
Avatar n tn my dog is 13 yrs old and there were no prior symptoms suddenly it happened 2 days back Pomeranian crossbreed is my dogs breed. no i haven't gave my dog any strenuous exercise .......it happened suddenly .
Avatar f tn Over the summer I broke (shattered) my elbow which the bone has since healed according to the doctor, I am still in a lot of pain not so much in my elbow area but it feels as if it is in the bone and is slowly making its way up my arm and is now into my shoulders and neck. The ortho doc pretty much told me he doesn’t know why I’m still hurting (his actions show he doesn’t really care) since the bone is healed he doesn’t know what to do.
Avatar n tn My neighbor who never even remembers a tick nor has she any pets had a mini stroke, mri was done and it was findings on it which her doctor further tested for lyme and she was also positive. One band only IGM, not sure which one, but needless to say. She is a doctor herself and a positive, like my doctor says, is A POSITIVE. Whether it be one or several. My doctor had a daughter that had it and he flat out says if you are psotive on IGM, it represents current infection.
Avatar f tn Hello Sam......I'm sorry no one responded to your post...I do not have any personal experience w/seizures but there is a thread here about the side effects of Phenobarbital....I'm wondering if that's what your seeing in your dog's behavior now & not necessarily continued stroke symptoms..... I'll go find the thread..... Also, I can help you play detective & maybe we can figure out what's causing these seizures.....Let me know what you have ruled out so far......
363281 tn?1518219421 The goos news is just having afib episodes per se isn't necessarily a critical thing at this point in your life. Many factors go in to grading the severity of the disease including but not limited to; the presence of other structural or anatomic abnormalities, the function of other systems, the duration of afib, number of episodes, ventricular response, risk factors for stroke/clotting disorders, function of the remainder of the conduction system etc etc.
Avatar f tn It could also have been caused by hypoglycemia. It could have been a minor cerebral accident (mini stroke). If it's a brain tumor, they will happen again. If it was hypoglycemia, as long as her blood sugar doesn't crash again, it should remain an isolated incident. If it was a cerebral accident, it may or may not happen again. At 15, though, I wouldn't start her on serious meds like anti-seizure meds unless the seizures were happening on a daily or even weekly basis.
544292 tn?1268886268 Severity of withdrawal can be estimated by considering that each 100 mg tramadol oral (hx daily use) will be roughly equivalent of 10 mg morphine (IV daily use) in severity of withdrawal symptoms. Differences are that standard opiate withdrawal seems to cause more physical illness (vomitting, diarhea, bone pain etc.) Tramadol withdrawall seems to cause significantly more anxiety and emotional distress.

Avatar m tn It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer. My dog was knocked flat by the loading dose and barely moved for the first couple of days. He bumped into objects, seemed blind, responded to sounds incorrectly (looked in the wrong direction), tripped, stumbled, and fell flat on his stomach a few times when trying to walk.
Avatar n tn You can usually get them to stop it by massaging their throat and getting them to swallow. It happens in cats as well as in dogs. Gasping and coughing could be a sign of a collapsing trachea. This is extremely common in middle aged and older toy dogs, and it's caused by the rings of the trachea losing their firmness, causing the trachea to cave in. It's fairly common in overweight dogs as well. Diagnosis can be made by palpating the throat to see if a cough can be elicited.
1413972 tn?1305583364 the other sunday i had some tramadols as the pain was too much and felt different within 3hours id had a seizure and docs actaully think it was a mini stroke! so erm ive gave them back to the doctor.. i hate this feelin and jus feels like im gettin worse n worse and left to jus get on with it. im tryin soo hard to be normal and not let me pain show but its hard, this weeks been the hardest, im not sleepin or eatin cus of it either.. i really do wanna giv up! i feel soo alone.
Avatar m tn Just watch him closely and bring him in if his symptoms get worse. It's taken three days but, thanks be to God, Theo has completely recovered. I have been sick with worry and concern. And, guilt. I mean, I fed it to him. He got sick because of something I did. Well, not me, but because I trusted a name brand. Got suckered into the "home-style" marketing ploy. Yeah, well, I'm smart enough to know that "home-style" still means "made in a factory".
Avatar m tn Dear Keebster, Hi, sorry no one answered your first post. Glad you finally got in to see the neuro. I'd say your relative who said mini seizures were in the family could be what's happening to you. The EEG your doctor performed is to see if that's the situation.
Avatar f tn Then she was much better. And as time has gone by she is OK in the car now. Dogs and other animals do grieve. But I think although their feelings run deep and loyal, they are also more easily distracted than us humans are. So that's the best plan. But right now I know what you must be feeling. And I wish you all the best, and God Bless.
