stroke

Avatar n tn my husband was in hospital with a possible "mini stroke" He is scheduled to have a MRA in two days. He is still a little "off" in his balance. One dr. thought it was Vertigo.. But he didnt have all the signs. How can we tell if he might be having another stroke?
Avatar f tn I believe that the greatest risk is your likelihood of a full blown stroke, which of course can be life threatening. A TIA (mini stroke) is usually considered a warning sign by Doctors that something needs to be addressed. I assume they have given you medication to help lower the risk of a clot forming? such as aspirin?
Avatar f tn in the sense of symptoms of a stroke and stroke warning as signs of a pathology that could lead eventually to a stroke. the only way that could indicate higher risk of stroke is that it was caused by a vascular problem, but you should have a bit more going on I guess. it also depends on your age. maybe it was caused by sudden sun exposure. why are you worried about having a stroke, do you have other symptoms? is there someone in your family who's had a stroke?

Avatar n tn I have had one side of my face twitch for 3 weeks now, a friend has told me recently she had the same problem. Her end result was a mini-stroke. Could this twitching be an early warning to a mini-stroke?
Avatar f tn They are also called Mini-Strokes but that is not a good term as they are not a Stroke or CVA (cerebrovascular accident). A TIA is a CVA (stroke) that has resolved or has improved functionality in the affected body part. By defination a TIA resolves in 24 hrs but most resolve in minutes. Sadly, TIAs are often warning signs of a future CVA ( stroke). This risk is increased in the days following a TIA.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Transients ischemic attack (TIA), according to the American Heart Association, is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but with no lasting damage or injury to the brain. TIAs are important in predicting if a stroke will occur rather than when one will happen. In about half the cases, the stroke occurs within one year of the TIA.
Avatar f tn t think a thing about it until I told my husband last night and he said it might have been a mini stroke. My mother (deceased) had experienced these in the past and she had severe heart problems that the doctors said may have caused the strokes. I looked up the symptoms, but I only really had numbness in my face and a slight pain over my eye. Could this have been a mini stroke? Should I see a doctor now even though I have no symptoms? Thank you.

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.
Avatar n tn Hi,The symptoms you have described,sound like stroke related.I myself and my husband both have mini strokes.It sounds like,with the numbness and pain he has suffered a stroke or min strokes.When he went to the emergency room,did they do an mri?He needs to been by a neurologist,one that knows what their doing.Make an appointment as soon as possible,as soon as you read this would be preferrable.It might be several things that causing this.Please make an appointment as possible though.
Avatar m tn No warning whatsoever. With my heart attacks or mini stroke. Especially with the mini stroke. I was watching TV one evening and all of a sudden the vision in my right eye went. In an instant I could only see the bottom of everything with my right eye.
905378 tn?1244854365 It could also be a TIA. Here's what Google shows in an early listing ... Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) A TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but ... Unlike stroke, when a TIA is over, there's no injury to the brain I would mention it to the doctor. Carcinista could easily be correct also.

Avatar n tn Also, what are the symptons or warning signs of a stroke or mini-stroke that we should be watching for with Dad? We are aware that he is more apt to have a stroke now that his brain has been injured. Thank you. =========================================================================== Dear Diana: Please refer to the answer to your 11/21 question.
Avatar n tn Please advise, we are wondering if he should be remaining with the GP or if he should be trying to get in to see the original neurologist who treated him in Calgary. Thank you.

Avatar n tn s (mini strokes) happen to people of all ages. A TIA is generally a warning of a full blown stroke waiting to happen (not not always). So get her thorough checked out & do all you can to make sure she atttends to the causative factors. I was 45 when I had my stroke just over a year ago. I wouldn't wish it in my worst enemy, let alone a lovely young girl. So get it checked, please.
Avatar m tn This morning I was hugging my girlfriend and suddenly her right leg gave out and she dropped her car keys out of her right hand. She was then dizzy for about 5 seconds and was fine after. She has been fine all day. She ears healthy and wirks out 4-5 days a week. Any input as to what would cause this would be deeply appreciated. My first thought was "mini stroke" but she has no symptoms. Thank you fir help!
Avatar n tn I had a hemorragic stroke (medulla) in 2001. I have basically recovered pretty well. In the past week and a half I have three times had kaleidascope-like flashing lights in my eyes in a crescent moom shape. Should I be worried about another sroke? I would have gone to a doctor already but I have no insurance anymore so have put it off.
Avatar n tn I also felt weak suddenly while walking and lost my balance and fell down, but recovered myself and started walking again. I have been wondering whether these are stroke warning signs? Most sites mention numbness in arm, not fingers. I measured my Blood pressure, it is around 130-94mm. I am on hypertension medication and last month had ECG and echo cardiogram and blood tests which were pretty normal. Should I go and meet my physician? I am currently travelling, Hence worried.
Avatar m tn Getting a stroke is one of the scariest things that would happen to a person because it can cause a lot of bad things to happen to them that anyone would not like. In the US alone there are about 700,000+ US citizens who have a stroke and that is a scary number. Do you know why a person gets a stroke? That is because your brain did not get blood to it and it will get damaged as a result hence the stroke.
Avatar f tn While prognosis may not be excellent with haemorrhagic stroke, your doctor is correct. Deterioration after initial progression could indicate another stroke/ mini stroke, issues with microcirculation or other neurological conditions. I would suggest considering a review with his treating neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
