Minor stroke after effects

Common Questions and Answers about Minor stroke after effects


Avatar f tn Your cough could come from your medication you are taking,side effects. Look up what kind of side effects could come your medication or drug interaction. Lisonopril does it for me and my freind. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I what recently prescribed this med after and MRI revealed that I have had a minor stroke on the left side ( Doctors were actually looking for MS ) I had a serious fall about 4 weeks ago. The neuro seems to think It may have been a siezure, but I don't think so. I don't know when the stoke accured, yet. I am only 37 .
Avatar n tn My dad is 76 and had a massive stroke to the left side of his brain, after the stroke he was in the hospital for 5 days and sent to acute rehab. He was there for 4 days and developed severe aspiration pnemonia and was put in ICU for 3 or 4 days and then in a regular room for about another 8 days, then Humana woud not approve him for acute rehab and sent him to a su acute rehab/nursing home where he was for 6 days.
Avatar n tn My left arm has had an internal tingling (like from the nerves), and/or very minor ache lately (maybe a month). I'm in great shape, I run a lot, and not overweight. On 7/13/08 sunday morning I became very dizzy and I felt the same sensations that I have when I'm going into an seisure. I fell to the floor, but eventually the spinning sensation stopped. I fealt dissoriented and not the same. The hospital said it was probably lightheadedness.
Avatar n tn I have had no recurrance but after hospital stay after the stroke I found out the blood in my heart pooled because my heart was not pumping the blood right and sent clot to brain. I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and A-fib. So if you don't have heart problems I guess your Strokes were caused by something else. Clot did not show up on CT. I can't do MRI's because of my defibrillator. I did not have headaches or noise problems. I did feel like I was going crazy.
Avatar n tn I refused to take the statins after my first stroke because of the many and varied side effects they can cause, but I have been worried enough this time to take them. I am taking 20mg which is ½ of the normal starting dose of 40mg and I’m taking plant sterols as well in the form of spreads. Yogourts and yogourt drinks to help reduce my cholesterol levels.
Avatar n tn Tremors are not new but seem a bit worse; there is a family history of essential tremor. I have also noticed some minor speech difficulties, particularly with "sh" sounds followed by things like "ts" or "st" -- for example in conversation I pronounced "crushed stone" as "crush shtone" and had to try 3 times to get it right.
Avatar n tn Was your brother in law hospitalized with his stroke? If so, was he seen/treated by a Cardiologist? While in the hospital was he sent to Neurosonology to find out exactly what caused the stroke i.e. a blood clot from fibrillation, bleeding or a small bleeding in the brain? Was a CT scan or/and a sonogram done on his brain? If his "doctor" was unclear as you stated then its high time your brother in law sees a Specialist in that field.
Avatar n tn I suppose it is possible, but it may be more likely that in your husband's particular case the stroke caused the fall as there appears to be a stuttering aspect to the initial presentation of the stroke. It is well known that strokes occuring after a fall may be due to fat embolism after a traumatic bone fracture. A little piece of fat gets into the circulation and clogs up an artery in the brain leading to 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.
Avatar n tn I've tried iron supplements recently which have alleviated a bit of tiredness though I stopped after having serious side-effects like nausea and black stool. Not sure whether I should try it again as iron supplements are supposedly relatively toxic to Thalassemia patients with iron building up easily in the body. I really hope doctors would give more research into BTM as it has substantial symptoms.
Avatar n tn The CT results were not revealed to us until this week, although the scan was performed after her stroke three months ago. They are saying now that the stroke seems to have also affected the other side of her brain which is causing her to have problems with her left hand. She was able a few weeks ago to pick up a glass and drink but is now not able to do that. We are uncertain how to address possible depression.
Avatar n tn The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down. She is currently in a rehab hospital (March 18) with paralysis on the right side (arm and leg) and has aphasyia - she understands us but has a hard time getting her words out (she does put small phases together at times).
Avatar n tn The severity of this after effects is the true measure of how sick we really were. That is why this after effects are much stronger in those who SVR then in those who did not. And what do we mean by a 'normal' state? Pre-treatment state was not a 'normal' state; pre-infection was a normal state, and many of us were sick for so long that we do not even recall how that felt. If we do not feel the way we felt before treatment that is good, is it not? It means we are cured.
1069105 tn?1256704012 12/’09, open cholecystectomy due to acute cholecystitis w/ pigmented gallstones. In 5/’10 , she had a minor stroke. Her eyesight became blurry, she vomited twice and lost motor control, especially on her left side. She was discharged from the hospital after 1 to 2 days. She is now back on Warfarin (with the same cardiologist who recruited her for the Apaxiban vs Warfarin clinical trial back in 8/’09.) Daily BP: B4 breakfast - 140 PM & eve- 120 She take her BP medicine after breakfast.
Avatar n tn She's fine other than shortness of breath due to her lungs having water and her foot developed a nasty wound which started as a blister. She was getting better after her 4th dialysis and a doctor said that the infection on her foot was stopped. Though, they need to clean it in an operation soon.
Avatar m tn I have some side effects too from Beta Blockers, but these too are minor, unless I feel I have go get back to long distance running (a past exercise) or other hard physical work. Would I like to be able to do those things again, yes, but I'm happy to live without them if my condition and medication side-effects make it necessary. Would I like to see a perfect fix, make my heart work like I was 20, or even 50 YO again,, yep, but that hasn't happened yet to my knowledge.
Avatar n tn When I was in the Hospital, I was told that I had Heart failure as well as a Stroke. Did the Heart failure cause the Stroke, or did the Stroke cause the Heart failure. Thanks in advance for the help.
Avatar n tn What are the common effects of radiation therapy? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/258799'>Phylloides Tumor</a>.
221913 tn?1372280261 I am taking shot 20 tomorrow and have felt side effects for about the past 2 months.....nausea,weightloss,minor hair loss but nothing unmanagable.....I have definetly been more easily angered.....good days and bad but it seems to me once you get started you will feel less anxiety.....you are at the point I was at.....trying to figure out all the sx and worrying like crazy.....the weeks following the start of this med was worse than the meds :) emotionally anyways.
Avatar n tn So there has to be some kind of toll taken on your body after this. I did have something happen after the surgery that concerned me. My tops of my thighs developed large discolored gray areas about a week after the surgery. They didn't look like a bruise but just a discoloration like bad blood circulation. But I was checked for clots with an ultra sound and I don't have any. I am still having small attacks with my heart that last about 5 seconds but nothing like I was having before.
29837 tn?1414538248 I can't find any data on it. What might be any long term side effects after being on the treatment? I hope none.
Avatar n tn It was written in such small prints I had to read it with a magnifying glass and it was double sided. After a few months on treatment I thought I had just about all the side effects but after treatment many of the side effects went away and I felt pretty good but I never got back to normal. My thinking and decision making was foggy, fatigue set in, I became anxious and lost weight. I could go all day and not even think about eating, I make myself eat now and try to have a decent diet.
Avatar n tn Do you know if a MRA was requested? I, too was given a CT Scan when expierencing stroke symptoms. The CT Scan came back clear and I was sent home with a diagnosis of "Migrains with neuological side effects." I suffered an acute ischemic stroke 2 weeks later. The stroke affected my cerabellum, brain stem and the right side of my brain. An MRA and MRI was done when hospitalized. The MRA will show the ateries, blood vessels and aortas.
Avatar n tn I was recently told that this worked very well for one woman who regained a fair amount of function more than two years after having her (left side) stroke. I hope to hear from someone. Many thanks.
Avatar n tn It may be weeks before you really know how much damage was done. Typically, the first 90 days after a stroke will show the best rate of recovery. The next 90 days will be a bit slower and so on until one year out. Typically after one year, the rate of recovery slows to a crawl. I'm told that the brain recovers at a 20 to 1 ratio. That is to say as an example, if you bruised your arm and it took 1 month to heal, the same insult to the brain may take 20 months.
Avatar m tn He has always been thirsty but has no other side effects. He recently had his liver levels checked and now after 7 yrs are showing liver damage. The vet wants me to ween him off of the phenobarbital. I was wondering what kinds of herbal remedy do you give your dog? And does it keep your dog from having seizures? All I know is Otis only has a seizure now if he manages to spit out a pill. The phenobarbital has worked great for the last 7 yrs and I am worried with out it all he will do is sieze.
Avatar n tn Maybe cut down to two beers, for a week, and then 1 beer, and then stop? Is cutting down slowly a good way to avoid side effects? Is my body getting used to not having alcohol? My stomach now feels better, less gas, and my apetite has increased. I'm not going to have any psychological withdrawls, I feel good without drinking, I'm just worried about the physical withdrawls.
