stroke

Avatar m tn I remember words being said or written, plus a little about the context. However, within what seems like milliseconds, it dissipates and I cannot remember what the words/memories were. The sensation doesn't happen often, but when it does, there is usually a cluster of them over a few-hour period. It happened this morning, and the only thing I can link to it was having some unual and very vivid dreams overnight. I awoke feeling a little confused. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn the exposures you describe did not put you at any risk for HIV. The risk for HIV starts with whether or not your partner had HIV. It is unlikely from what you tell me that they were - the average rate of HIV among heterosexual American women is less than 1 infection per 10,000 persons and the rate for college age, presumably non-IV drug using, white women is substantially lower than that.
Avatar m tn You can consult your doctor for this assessment. As for him developing further strokes, his risk factors like hypertension and diabetes need to be adequately controlled. And if he is on any blood thinners like plavix or coumadin, they need to be monitored by frequent blood testing. Be optimistic and encourage him to improve his skills further. Good Luck. Regards.
Avatar f tn From your MRI findings of brain it is evident that you have suffered ischemic damage which makes you more at risk of stroke. However if you modify your dietary habits, do regular physical exercise and keep your BP and sugar levels in control the risk of stroke will be reduced. Please follow the advice of your PCP and get all the blood tests done, take zocor regularly to keep your cholesterol levels under control. Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn For TIA the diagnostic challenge is greater, and the ‘mimic’ rate higher (and more varied), because there is no definitive diagnostic test. TIA heralds a high risk of early ischaemic stroke, and in many cases the stroke can be prevented if the cause is identified," http://pn.bmj.
Avatar m tn You can relax. It is hard for me to imagine safer sex than you had, regardless of the fact that your partner was a commercial sex worker and regardless of what infections she might have had. (Indeed, I think this is the first time I ever heard of someone using condoms, gloves, and barriers for oral sex all during the same exposure event!) To your specific questions: 1,2) I cannot see any plausible STD risk here, even if your partner had every STD there is.
Avatar m tn As long as one of the two vertebral arteries is of sufficient size, there is not a particular risk of stroke due to hypoplastic artery; in fact, some believe the artery is hypoplastic because the other one is dominant. It is important to understand the implications of your imaging findings and discussion of your questions with your neurologist is important. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
Avatar m tn A negative PCR is further evidence of what I said- there is no risk for HIV form kissing. You do not need further testing. In fact, you did not need testing to start with.
Avatar f tn Atrial fibrillation is linked to an increased risk of stroke. The most common mechanism is sluggish blood flow in the atria which then leads to the formation of blood clots. These blood clots form in the atria and can migrate from the heart to the brain to cause a stroke. There are five major predictors of stroke in patients with AFib.
Avatar n tn The bottom line here is that if you’re healthy you shouldn’t take aspirin without a cardiovascular risk assessment by your doctor. If you’re not sure about your risk of heart disease, get tested. Today there are many advanced tests (such as a heart scan for coronary calcium), beyond the basic lipid profile, that can help you and your doctor determine where you stand.
Avatar n tn I'm a twenty three year old male. I've never had any form of a migraine during anytime in mylife until just recently. I was having sex with my partner and just before climax I had a stabbing pain right behind my left ear. Its been going on now the past three times I've had sex. The pain generally subsides within ten to fifteen minutes. Is there anything that I can do to prevent the headaches from starting. (acupuncture, pain meds)?
Avatar m tn for people younger than 65 years with no risk factors the untreated annual risk of stroke is about 1%, whereas with one or more risk factors it is about 5%; for people aged 65-75 years with no risk factors the annual risk of stroke is about 4%, and with one or more risk factors it is about 6% per year; and for people older than 75 years with no risk factors the risk of stroke is about 3%-4%, whereas with one or more risk factors it is about 8% (see Box 2) (E1).7,26 from http://www.mja.com.
Avatar m tn There is no risk for HIV form this encounter and only a slight risk for other STIs. The most common STIs following receipt of oral sex are gonorrhea and NGU, each of which are unlikely if you are asymptomatic and easily tested for, should you desire testing. 2) Which statement do agree with? See above. The first doctor's advice was overly conservative. 3) What would you suggest me to do in this time? Relax. I see no need for testing.
Avatar m tn I recently read that one can possibly contact herpes even after using a condom. I want to know the risk of me getting herpes and other std . Also the risk of me contacting with hiv. and should i go for hiv and other related std testing ? plz reply as soon as possible .
Avatar m tn Unprotected sex has put you at risk. Being uncircumcised does increase your risk some. However, the odds of a single exposure leading to infection are about 1-2000. The odds your partner was infected are also not likely. Have a 4th gen DUO test done at 28 days post for a conclusive result. If this test is not available to you have a 3rd gen antibody test 7-8 weeks post for a pretty accurate result.
