Common Questions and Answers about Signs of mild stroke treatment


Avatar f tn I had a CT scan done. The doctor told me I was showing signs of mild emphysema. Everything I find on the Internet is negative and scary. I wasn't sure what this meant and prognosis.
Avatar n tn What is the preferred optimal treatment for a 65 year old recovered stroke patient (only mild aphasia) diagnosed with Patent formanen ovale? Is it the use of the closure device or medication with blood thinners?
Avatar n tn IV tPA can be dangerous if used too late, or for too large a stroke, or in the presence of a CT scan showing signs of an early infarction. It would also be an unnecessary risk if the stroke is too mild, or rapidly improving, or if there is diagnostic uncertainty about the event. The benefit of IV tPA is increasing modestly the number of patients that will eventually have a good outcome.
Avatar n tn Physical therapy and speech therapy ASAP.
Avatar n tn I've had an intermittent tingling in my ear and on my face for several days. It lasts 20-30 seconds though it sometimes turns to mild pain and also sometimes includes my jaw and cheekbone. It's mostly on the right side of my face, though I've felt some on the left side as well. I've seen two doctors who couldn't identify it. I have no other symptoms. No headache, nausea, muscle weakness, bels palsy or any of the other signs of stroke. I'm 38 and otherwise healthy.

Avatar f tn hi, your symptoms are like stroke but not completly, you should check it for other conditions such as bells pulsy or may be other things.
Avatar n tn I had headache and right part of my face is numb. Is this a sign of Stroke? I am scared, I work too jobs about 80 or 85 hours I work. I don't get enough sleep. I want advise, what should I do.
Avatar f tn There is such a thing as a TIA (transient ischemic attack), which resembles a stroke in how it works but reverses itself within about 24 hours if I remember correctly on the time frame. However, please note that one of the hallmarks of a stroke or stroke-like event is the inability to speak in coherent sentences, can't stick out the tongue, facial weakness on one side, etc.
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 n tn if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.

Avatar n tn Hello dear, You probably had a Transient Ischaemic Attack or a mini stroke caused by the temporary disturbance of blood supply to a restricted area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that usually persists for less than 24 hours.The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision ; difficulty speaking (aphasia); weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis); and numbness or tingling (paresthesia), usually on one side of the body.
Avatar n tn Your worry about this being possibly a stroke is a very reasonable one. One usual way to judge the likelihood of a stroke is to go by so called "risk factors" which include older age, high blood pressure, male sex, high cholesterol, family history, and history of heart disease. In general, the fewer of risk factors one has, the less likely a stroke will hit that person. Keep in mind, though, this applies only when we deal with common strokes.
Avatar n tn you should go to a neurologist or a primary doctor to have this evaluated. you may have been dehydrated (and your blood pressure was too low for you). why have you lost so much weight? are you exercising too much or on a special restrictive diet? do you get enough sleep? there is a good chance that this was a mild faint spell rather than a mini-stroke but you won't know until you have a full evaluation.
