867582 tn?1311627397 MS can look like a stroke. My sister looks like she has had a stroke- left foot drop, left side of face droopy, left arm weak . . . She's had other symptoms besides the ones mentioned above that's left her unable to walk and what looked like a stroke on the onset. Even her current neurologist said he was thinking that she may have had a stroke at first. The MRI of the brain and neck revealed a different story.
Avatar n tn Another possiblity (though less likely perhaps given your multiple stroke risk factors) is could this be MS rather than stroke? Visual loss could have been optic neuritis and the "stroke" in cerebellum could be a plaque. Certainly don't mean to alarm you, just let you know that there may be other possibolities. There are special types of MRI that can easily distinguish between a stroke an dMS.
Avatar m tn You are referring to last Sunday's article in the NY Times Magazine about the possibility that tenofovir (Viread) might prevent HIV transmission when taken as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PREP, as opposed to post-exposure prophylaxis, PEP). Specifically, people might use it prior to a risky sexual exposure, e.g. gay men before a night at a public sex venue such as a bath house.
Avatar n tn This is for a research project and I have been searching for something appropriate for weeks but there does not seem to be any magazine that fits. It is either way too general, like Prevention magazine, or way too specific and technical for a non-physician to understand. So I am wondering what doctors read to keep abreast of these things. I am sure there must be something out there. Thanks for any help you can provide. I appreciate it very much.

Avatar n tn Robot Therapy Stroke and found a lot of related articles. Good luck.
Avatar m tn The causes of stroke are multiple and could include embolism from the heart or other areas (such as the aorta or other parts of the body), bleeds, atherosclerosis of the blood vessels, vasculitis (or inflammatory processes affecting the blood vessels of the brain), and others. The prevention of stroke typically depends on what are the risk factors a patient has. These may include aspirin, certain blood thinners, or cholesterol-lowering medications.
Avatar n tn I do read Prevention magazine and I've seen articles about the MUFA's, but have never seen a specific "plan". I've also seen articles in Reader's Digest and other magazines about them. I eat a lot of foods with MUFA's (olive oil, avocados, nuts, etc) but am not familiar with MCT oil. I would think that, like everything else, it would be possible to get too much of a good thing!

Avatar m tn Some of this sounds as though it could be anxiety due to the stroke and also to other life and self pressures. I think that there is a stroke expert forum and it may be better for you to ask your question there. If you receive no feedback there you might like to try your family doctor. Another option could be the neurology expert forum or the mood disorders expert forum. Good luck.
1478333 tn?1287401534 “The effectiveness of vitamin D in fall prevention in all people with stroke has not yet been determined,” Bachelor explained. He said that while previous research had illustrated that fall-prevention programs that included exercise were effective for seniors, what wasn’t as clear was whether such regiments helped individuals who had differed a stroke.
Avatar n tn Usually, aspirin therapy is recommended for stroke prevention as long as the benefits outweigh the risks. However, side effects of this should be considered and asked with the treating doctor. Another stroke prevention strategy should be take low-fat diet, limit alcohol, quit smoking, exercise regularly and get your blood pressure monitored every years, especially if high blood pressure history is present in your family. Hope this helps.
