stroke

Avatar m tn I have had a speech problem, which I attribute to a mini stroke as diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. They also diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. Since it didn't clear up, I sought a Speech Therapist who diagnosed me with Dysarthria. I have not received any treatment yet. I have had the condition for several months. I used to fall a lot, but I have learned to be very careful. My vision is blurry. I also have Diabetes, type II.
1474856 tn?1288289049 Transient Ischemic Attack Symptoms can include: numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.
582396 tn?1259863489 I am over the moon excited that DH got a 5-10 day appointment at Mayo Clinic - Dec. 10. Anyone have any experiences on what to expect etc?
Avatar n tn Hello... I am interested about how they determined that your 2nd procedure was unsuccessful. Did you have recurrence of the arrhythmia? If in fact you still have atrial flutter, I know that the Mayo Clinic does, as a last resort for cure, perform a surgical procedure called a "mini maze." These are usually performed for curative measures for people who suffer with Afib, but there have been successes with Atrial Flutter as well. You could check out the Mayo Clinic online.
549269 tn?1236130637 Mini strokes as they are called. I am in Rochester MN right now at the Mayo Clinic to see several doctors. YEsterday at my hotel I was taken by ambulence after having sudden severe dizzyness, slurred speech, left sided weakness, difficulty walking, and possible seizures. After 1 1/2 hours in the ER and several tests I started to return to normal. I see an stroke doctor today and Dr Oro in January. Should I call Dr Oro about my symptoms?
Avatar n tn If your arm feels weak or numb, this could certainly be a sign of stroke or mini-stroke and you should seek emergency medical attention. Certain tachycardias do predispose to stroke. I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back. Information provided here is for general purposes only. Specific questions should be addressed to your own doctor.
Avatar n tn The unfiltered blood was going to her brain causing her to have an actual stroke not a TIA like they thought. The Mayo clinic performed the closure surgery thru the cardiac catherization and she is doing just fine now. They use a small devise that goes in and balloons up over the hole and when we went back in 6 months it had formed over the hole as it was suppose to and she doesn't have to go back again. She has more energy and is doing just fine.

Avatar m tn Some here on the board are not real pleased with the Mayo clinic. It seems they have their own set of standards to give out a dx of MS. I personally know nothing about them and wish you the best....hoping for that answer.
Avatar n tn My mother had a Star Edwards model #1260 installed in 1979 at Mayo Clinic and has had a few incidents in the past 20 years, the most recent was this week, she had a loss of speech which put her in the hospital this week, they are calling this a mini stroke but no damage detected on the cat scan. She was admitted with an INR of 1.5 and has had a few tests that are showing something around the valve. She is already on 10 mg of coumadin a day but nothing else for anticoagulation.

1166523 tn?1264364643 Hi janereed, I went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN in Oct 09. When I first walked in it was a dr that was training to be a consulting dr and he told me that they believed I had a stroke and that I was gonna stay like I was without improving. Well I blew up at him because he hadn't even examined me or anything. And all my other dr's from home had ruled out a stroke and said MS. Well the consulting dr. (Dr. Keegan) came in and did an examination and was very nice.

Avatar n tn I had it again in July, 2008 and have been unable to recover from its symptoms. I had an appointment with a specialist at Duke Private Diagnostic Clinic, yesterday. This was a routine visit as he has consulted on my case from a medicine standpoint for several year. I had one of these shortness of breath (asthma attacks) in his office. He did a thorough examination and sent me to x-ray. He says the xray show a paralyzed diphragm.
Avatar f tn There is the maze procedure. Mayo Clinic provides the following information and is one of a few medical centers in the United States that performs the maze procedure, a highly complex surgical treatment option for atrial fibrillation. Mayo Clinic heart surgeons are highly skilled and have years of experience with this technique.

Mayo Clinic,oxycontin and so on. It has distinct possibility of helping some or all of us as to what to do. I should have looked there to begin with. Now I have a ton of possible help. Try it, it may be just what you need.
Avatar f tn I have just made an appointment for a full work up at the Mayo Clinic, does anyone know the tests involved and how much they charge? Thank you!
Avatar m tn My neurologist is suggesting that I travel to/visit the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota to receive "expert" analysis for my neuropathy/footdrop problems. Living in North Carolina, this does present logistical problems and I am looking for advice on whether the Mayo Clinic indeed has a reputation and special instrumentation that would warrant such a visit.
Avatar m tn Does anyone know of any other Clinic other than Mayo that is as crediable? No Dr. has been able to confirm anything, I know it is not in my head!! This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/295876'>Help with diagnosis</a>.
