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.

Avatar n tn Sorry to hear about your stroke. The data suggests that aspirin a day is enough treatment for your condition. I know that it sounds like you should have treatment such a coumadin but since you only have 50% blockage, the aspirin is the best choice. If you have comorbid atrial fibrillation then coumadin would be the medication of choice. How is the other carotid? Yes, CCF takes medicare.

Our ability to successfully manage the process is significantly improved when the conditions are diagnosed early. Early identification is improved when the public is informed about the risk factors and symptoms of the disease.

Avatar n tn However, side effects of this should be considered and asked with the treating doctor.

3246889 tn?1349974415 Traditional medicine is often used along with Western-style medicine there and is well accepted as a legitimate disease intervention. Herbal medicine isn’t as well-accepted in the United States, however.

Avatar n tn If it is exercised induced pace your self. If environmental avoid, and if food allergy, avoid. Otherwise medicate. You learn how to live with it eventually. Knowing why you get it (different for each person) will teach you how to prevent it. But avoiding what is your trigger is not always possible. My biggest triggers are my dog, pollen and smoke.

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 n tn 3) Suppose a person has some unexpired Cipro, which apparently works against many types of bacterial infections. After engaging in unprotected oral sex with several different high-risk partners (say, 10) in short period of time while on vacation, would it make sense to use the Cipro as a preventative measure? My guess would be "no, not unless you actually show symptoms". Everyone says you shouldn't abuse anti-biotics. On the other hand, STDs are no fun at all, I've heard.
