Common Questions and Answers about Stroke diagnosis ppt


Avatar f tn My 33 year old daughter had a stroke 3 years ago and since then has had 3 DVTs, and 2 mini strokes. 8 weeks ago she had blood work done and we found out that she has a clotting disorder which has yet to be identified to us. Her hematologist said the blood work can take several weeks before we get a diagnosis. She has gone to the Coumadin clinic once a week for the last 8 weeks and her INR levels have been in the 2 range. 3 days ago she woke up in severe pain.

In the process of testing ( which consisted of adenosine, then recovery/opening with acetylcholine) I arrested and it took them a couple of minutes to get me back. I was awake/conscious for most it and was even pleased when the docs were able to reproduce my symptoms!
Avatar n tn Wow Wow Wow, I really thought I was crazy and after receiving the H1N1 for my work and having the pain I now believe the two are related. I didn't think anything of my shoulder pain last year after receiving the seasonal flu shot along with the whooping cough shot, but after the H1N1 shot this year I started linking the two and something is wrong, someone is not telling us something. Here it is and please let me know I am helping someone.
Avatar n tn My neurologist is hesitant to change my medication, as upon initial diagnosis of the epilepsy, I tried 2 other medications (Tegratol and Epilim) - neither of which controlled the epilepsy. I am really open to any advice from anyone at all!! Especially if they have been in a similar situation - but even if you haven't! I am a mining engineer and I work 12 hour days (although I've been off work for 6 weeks with this recent bout of illnesses).
