Avatar f tn I had my hearing testing at the ENT doctor and was told that it was normal except for a slight hearing loss in my left ear which he said was normal for my age (68). My doctor put me on Plavix when he told me I had had the stroke. I had no warning signs other than a slight headache on the right side above my ear that lasted several days. They did a CT and I went to a neurologist the next week who ordered a MRI, MRA and also an EEG. He said I also had epilepsy.
Avatar f tn // Natural alternative: Nattokinase is a potent fibrinolytic (anti-clotting) enzyme extracted and highly purified from a traditional Japanese food called Natto. Nattokinase enhances our body’s natural ability to fight blood clots, and has an advantage over blood thinners because it has a prolonged effect without side effects.

Avatar f tn The SVC attachment area was angioplastied due to narrowing. Our son was placed on Plavix for an expected six month time frame. One week after the Cath, our son began getting severe headaches with vomiting. CT scans were clear. Headaches were occurring 3 times per month with more mild headaches occurring 3 times per week. MRI was unremarkable except for the presence of what they considered to be old bleeds from surgery where he was on CPB. Periactin was prescribed daily for headaches.
Avatar f tn There are no documented evidence that plavix causes stomach bloating. Plavix is a medication that helps prevent clot formation, and there is increased risk for excessive bleeding.

Avatar n tn While in the hospital they put me in heparin drip to thin my blood to start with, then they put me on plavix. I have episodes of bad sharp pain around my left temple coming down sometimes to may face, and from time to time especially after i take my BP meds with the plavix I get nauseated and light headed. My question is, are these sharp pains around the temple normal, and could the plavix be causing be being nauseous and light headed?
Avatar f tn He received platelets in the ICU to reverse the effects of Plavix, stayed two nights, was transferred to the floor for one night and then returned home 5 days ago. Since that time he has spent the majority of his time sleeping. His appetite is poor, his balance is slightly impaired, he has a headache which worsens throughout the day which is only slightly improved with Percocet, he complains of vertigo and some hearing loss.
Avatar m tn But still felt only 55% of myself. . I stopped taking plavix.. well every other day now.. Today I did not take plavix.. The bp and heart rate was bit high.. Those days when I took crestor and plavix my bp was 100/50 and pluse rate 50-55 I am feeling 60% of myself today. . Just wondering if there is any other explanation for my symptoms. .or simply plavix and statins making me sick..
Avatar f tn She had a stroke on her 60th birthday. About 6 months later she started getting head pain. Not like a headache. More like a hot burning pain that move around the head. She has tried everything and no pain reliever works. She is desperate at this point to be out of pain. She is never without some kind of pain. She sometimes says even the air from the window will hurt. She is on plavix, bp medicine, high cholestrol medicine and neurotin.
Avatar m tn Have had 2 episodes of SVT - Am on Atenanol/ Isosorbide Dinitrate/ Plavix ( 75 mg x 2) / Lanoxin / ASA / Cymbalta . Recently I had some Icecream (1st time in 8 years) ate too fast and got a brain freez headache - but at exactly same time and with the same throb as the headache I had chest pain that mimiced one of the type of my chest pains. Headache stops ,so does chest pain. Is this a vagus nerve issue ?
Avatar n tn I left the hospital with prescriptions for 75mg. Plavix, 81mg. Aspirin, 20mg. Zocor, 12.5mg. Diuretic, and Diovan 320, and Protonix 40mg., that I had already been taking before the event. My MRI report says that "brain parenchyma shows mild cortical atrophy and chronic nonspecific periventricular and deep white matter parenchymal disease. Findings likely due to chronic microvascular ischemic disease. No acute intracanial abnormality. Mild atrophy and chronic changes.
Avatar f tn I thought I should let you know what I discovered myself. I was put on Plavix 6 weeks ago. It checked the side effects and saw that I had several of them. These included, sore throat, chest infections, bleeding gums when brushing teeth, blood in nasal mucus, fatigue and a bit depressed. I have stopped Plavix now for two days to test my hypothesis. Not much of a change yet (but a little better). The half life of Plavix is 5 to seven days, so I will give it a week to judge.
Avatar f tn I may be mistaken but I believe it is the interaction of plavix and aspirin that is the thetherapuetic underpinnings for the dual medication to help prevent clots with DES. Each medication has different mechanisms for treatment of blood clots and alone it has been shown are not as effective as together. Following your logic to separate to avoid the interaction of the drugs is somehow beneficial! would be like taking either aspirin or plavix as the sole treatment?
Avatar m tn Early this year, I have experienced tingling, headache, numbness, fatigue, constant pain my right side of the brain and my right side of my body. I felt like my brain artery or veins that goes though in and out of my brain, back neck area though my back and arms are really tight, and some point, it feels like it is going to explode (constant pain and tightness).
Avatar n tn They are probably unrelated - but possible related in a distant way. This is called a subconunctival hemorrhage and can be caused by coughing, sneezing, hard straining, and eye rubbing. Sometimes occurs for no apparent reason. Usually totally painless. Often, worsened by taking aspirin or other blood thinners. You should go ahead and see an ophthalmologist since you have some associated headaches.
277836 tn?1359669774 I didn't notice much of he zaps of black circles but the room was bright this lasted maybe 15 to 20 mins. Soon to follow was a headache just like it did last October.which eye dr told me usualyy when you have an ocular Migraine its a sign of a migraine coming on. Anyway when I sneeze now my right side of my head hurst and even if I cough. Which again just like before same symptoms as in October..
Avatar m tn Also I have been put on plavix as a blood thinner, that may be causing the bruising.
88793 tn?1290230777 -) This is especially so as your have a blood thinner (Plavix) which will prevent fast clotting of blood. Do you think your headache (Migraine) is better after beginning plavix? Headache after blowing the nose, may be due to the 'strength' of the blow. It would have dragged the nasal mucosa and caused the pain? or caused a negative pressure in some sinus? Were you having a common cold or some infection of the upper respiratory region??

Avatar n tn Topamax,keppra,lamotrigine can be used as add on drugs with medications mentioned above.Dilantin doesn’t cause depression but can cause decrease in renal function,headache,dizziness,confusion,double vision etc.It is best to discuss your concerns with your doctor before initiation of an alternative antiepileptic drug. Do keep us posted. Regards!
Avatar f tn I am now on plavix and 81 mg aspirin. The plavix causes a headache and I don't feel well. My question is how does the neurologist know it isn't an opthamalic migraine occurence? As a teen ager and young adult I had migraines. They disappeared in my 40's/ The back of my neck does hurt constantly.
Avatar f tn The neurologist assigned to me stated the evidence of previous eschemic episode meant I was high risk for stroke. He sent me home on Plavix and restricted activity. Primary thinks I had a complex migraine since a sudden headache before episode. I do not have history of migraines. I did contract miningitis in 1996.I sought a second opinion with a stroke specialist. He too is not convinced I suffer from true TIA episodes. He sent me for a bubble test.
