Avatar n tn ve had many of the right tests for a stroke workup including blood work for a clotting disorder. Other tests to consider include homocysteine level and autoimmune panel to look for diseases such as lupus which can cause stroke. An angiogram to look for vasculitis may also be a consideration depending on your doc's suspicions for this disorder. Another possiblity (though less likely perhaps given your multiple stroke risk factors) is could this be MS rather than stroke?

Avatar n tn t drugs that prevent the migraines, or the vasoconstriction, then prevent the stroke? I assume, perhaps wrongly, that prevention of migraine prevents stroke (in my case). I had luck previously on propanalol, but my doctor now says that won't prevent a stroke. He says only calcium channel blockers MAY. Can you give me your opinion on this issue? Thank you very much.
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 m tn My faith in the coronary team is rather shaken as they did not discover the VD until after the second stroke and even wrote to me stating that there was nothing wrong with my heart to explain either why the first stroke or why i was getting chest pains about 3 weeks after the first stroke and they carried out numerous different tests including a CT angiogram. It was following the 2nd stroke that they looked closer at the CT scan. Any comments would be most helpful.
Avatar f tn I recently had a small stroke. After going thru many medical tests, I found out I have a very thin septal wall that is waving around. Also i have a mild regurgitation I believe in the mitral valve. My heart is mildly larger than normal but not called an enlarged heart. I have excellent collestoral levels and my arteres are clear. I was told other than that it seemed there was no other problems. What is the normal approach to this problem? Will they want to operate?

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.

Avatar n tn 1) Topical antiseptics, including listerine, have not been studied for their effectiveness in STD prevention. The best guess, based on distant past experience with other antiseptics (from thw WW II era) suggests little effect. Washing after sex can't hurt, but I doubt using listerine, alcohol, etc does not any difference beyond the minor benefit of soap and water. 2) There are no data on the per-exposure risks from oral sex for any STD other than HIV.
