Avatar n tn Hello everyone I think I have had occipital nerve problems with all the usual symptoms(tingling skull etc)but I also had what my doctor thought was a TIA at the same time.
Avatar n tn I am 2 years post dissection with pseudoaneurysm (no stroke--just mini strokes) and no healing. I have 5 year old twins and my husband and I would really like to have another. My symptoms are mostly under control but doctors seem unsure of the risk. I had preclampsia with the twins at 36 weeks and delivered via c-section at 37 weeks.
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 go back and forth about the pro's and con's of this procedure and about staying on Coumadin and the chances of having another stroke. I constantly worry about having another stroke. If I have this procedure, I will probably worry about having this device move or break over time in the middle of my heart during exercise. I am really scared! What do you think is the less risky? What should I do?
Avatar f tn Hi there, I was discharged from a stroke unit in the uk yesterday after having a mini ischaemic stroke which I was frombolised for. When I was first admitted my troponin levels were at 365, dropping to 190 over a 4 day period. I'm unsure of the level now but I imagine it's lower. But I know healthy people are supposed to have no reading. I'm a 29 year old, otherwise healthy female - no drinking smoking or drugs. No history of strokes in the family. I also had a fever for 2 days whilst admitted.
Avatar f tn Anyone functioning well enough to answer, to discuss your coping with stroke deficits that have remained for a year ago or longer. My stroke was more than 3.5 years ago and I still have some resentment about everything that I can't do. I would like to get a better attitude about it. But either way you are handling it, it would be helpful for me to hear about anyone else who still struggles with problems.
Avatar n tn I would have it checked, my father has a 70% blockage in his carotid artery, but this caused him to have two mini strokes. He now has it scanned, because they dont do anything in the uk, until it is 75% blocked, how sad is that. My dad was perscribed aspirin for it, to try to prevent stroke. He has it scanned yearly. Good luck.
Avatar m tn WOKE UP NOT MYSELF ,THINK MINI STROKE, HAD MRI ,ENDED UP FINDING PINEAL CYST .MY LIFE HASNT BN THE SAME SINCE FEB 2010 , MIGRAINES , SLEEPING ALL DAY , LOSS POWER ON MY LEFT HAND SIDE , IM ON MEDICATION FOR HEADACHES PAIN WHEN WALKING ,GOT CRUCHES , NOW IM HAVING FITS , N NOW IM HAVING FITS WHEN IM SLEEPING, IM 35, N VERY SCARED BUT MY DOCTORS DONT THINK THERES A PROBLEM, IM SCARED AND ANY INFORMATION ON PINEAL CYST WOULD BE GREATFULL .
Avatar f tn It also could have been another TIA, better known as a mini-stroke. TIAs (Transient Ischemic Attacks) are often warning signs of a future stroke. The risk of a stroke increases dramatically in the days after a TIA and may offer an opportunity to find a cause or minimize the risk to prevent the permanent neurological damage that results because of a full blown CVA (Cerebral Vascular Accident) or stroke.
Avatar f tn My family doctor said I had Temporal Arteritis, and I've also been diagnosed with a mini stroke before, but the neurologist didn't want to examine me and said that Fibromyalgia causes the temporal artery to swell! I've never heard this and can't seem to find any evidence to support this so I'm back to my family doctor on Monday morning.
Avatar m tn He is still only on a ward at the moment because they condemmed him, but he is on the list to get onto the stroke unit. Please bear in mind in the UK we pay National Insurance from our wages and not private medical care like in the US. Unless we pay private medical insurance we are looking at around £350 a day for care!! Pretty expensive stuff. My dads blood pressure is still quite high but they said that is normal after a stroke and they will monitor it.
Avatar f tn They have ruled out stroke, they have diagnosed that it is a complex migraine to the best of her knowledge. The MRI stated no lesions or tumors or concern on the brain. Her speech sounds like a stroke patient. She has no loss of memory or trains of thought. Her left side is very sensitive even to air. Her left arm is still numb but, leg has all the feelings back into it. What is the timeframe we should expect her to regain her speech.
Avatar f tn I have gone to my Ophthalmologist and she says beyond a slight Astigmatism i am fine, and i have gone to my Cardiologist who says I have not had a stroke or cardiac episode of any kind. I have had numbness and tingling in my arms and jolts of pain up to my knees about one a month with no real reason that I know. Again my Cardiologist knows all about these as well. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn A now they tell me they think it was optical migraine which is better than a mini stroke i know but my point is could the thyroxin of caused the vision loss etc. I am so annoyed that i have been put through all this pain and discomfort. I thank you barb 135 for your acurate advice you where correct it was to high a dosage for me and thank you for your advice much appreciated polly xx The doctor also said the hair loss may be something else but I find that to be to much of a coincidence.
Avatar n tn Now we were told the diagnostic tests done on his head, heart, and carotids were normal.....no stroke or mini strokes but he kept leaning to right side. This seeemed to somewhat improved with home PT. 2 months later he was hospitalized with again pneumonia and atrial fib so underwent several diagnostic testing. Found out he is silenting aspirating causing pneumonia which causes the atrial fib.
378497 tn?1232147185 I suffer with none of those mentioned, plus I am a petite frame size 8 in UK sizes/ size 4 in America sizes if I'm correct. So where do I fit in with this??????
Avatar f tn In December I had a severe migraine( I have suffered from these since my 30's when i had a mini stroke) , along with high BP and dizziness. I was down for a week, they gave me a Toradol shot and told me to see my GP for BP meds. Went to GP told him of symptoms and he put me on Lisinopril, which made the dizziness worse and I didn't stay on it. In January still was not feeling well and still had rib issue. Called GP who had me go in for CT.
Avatar m tn Hello WZlong_D, There have been multiple lawsuits in the UK from patients who've taken Seroxat, and it appears a class action suit is beginning in the US. The best link on this subject I've found is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paroxetine I need an anti-depressant as part of my treatment for Hashimotos hyperthyroidism. I use Lexapro, with the only side effect I've had is occasional constipation.
Avatar m tn the tiny blood vessel broke. There are just too many possibility. Also no-one can see inside a cochlea yet : so any tool is just guessing what goes wrong or what did not goes wrong. Still it is just guessing. Let me share broadly the challenges to finding a cure: 1. finding a cure - a. using stem cell (human ear nerve recently grow in UK Uni lab by Dr. Marcelo N. Rivolta of the University of Sheffield ) b. using gene (injecting turn-on gene and suppressing turn-off gene) c.
Avatar n tn My wife was at an endocrinology appt. for a pituitary follow up and when the Doctor looked at an MRI taken 3 months ago, he happened to mention that there were 20-30 white matter lesions which might be indicitive of MS, but "probably not", and if my wife was "his sister" he would tell her not to worry as it was unlikely to be so. This MRI study made comparisons to a prior MRI from 2003 which showed these lesions as well.
Avatar f tn You're welcome. Soul-destroying is exactly what it is. I have found comfort reading about other people's experiences with doctors on these boards.
Avatar n tn Breaking news here in the UK this morning is that Anita Roddick, founder of the Body Shop chain of stores, has died. A sad loss. Death is being attributed to a brain haemorrhage and the press are assuming that this is connected to the fact that Anita had hep c for about 35 years (she had reached the cirrhotic stage). This is the first time I have heard of a connection between hep c and brain haemorrhage. Do you think there is a genuine connection? How common is it?
Avatar n tn i read about Vagus Nerve some people have had it after injuries, you may be soo right, i also had high cholestrol which i been dieting last few months to fix, that may have caused the calcium difficiency, so you could be right about the mini stroke too, how do i get the stroke checked out? i have had a ct scan months ago of the brain was fine.
Avatar f tn I then had to lie for a further 6/7 hours flat until they could take out the lines out of 4 veins. I had been given heprin as they had used a mapping balloon, to help prevent stroke. I will need to have it done again I think as it has improved things a bit but I will not have it done there. I will try Manchester as they have an excellent reputation. Has anyone else had this done with no sedation?
Avatar n tn As regards ablation, he is not that keen on it at present ajudging it very much to be in its infancy - one could assume he meant in this country (the UK), but I kinda got the feeling he meant generally.
12080135 tn?1453631171 I was born Jan in Australia but moved to the UK aged two, I am now 48. My mother was diagnosed with RRMS age mid 30s The original diagnosis of my eye was thought to be Posterior ION post-operative, despite it being 5 weeks after op. I had OCT and field vision tests which were all quite severe sight loss but no swelling of nerve or pain. Q whether medication could mask those?
Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?
Avatar f tn I just did a week in the hospital! Had a spell like a mini stroke...blurry vision, shaky, high blood pressure, incoherent. Tests upon tests and nothing Well got released today with the conversion disorder diagnosis! WHO IN THE HECK CAME UP WITH THAT? You can't figure it out so you make me think I'm crazy? Thank you very much. Why don't you just dig my hole now!!!! Don't they realize what they do to you when they tell you that crap?
1397648 tn?1288146526 I am off all meds except for cumadin. I do have to take it do to the chance of stroke. Glad to hear you are off all the meds. I am looking forward to the possibility of being able to play racquetball, tennis, and cylce again. It ***** having just walking as my big workout.
