Avatar n tn I concur with mammo. Your symptoms indicate an irregular cardio system. Don't wait for a stroke or heart attack to happen, get your behind to an ER and get checked out!
867582 tn?1311627397 Neither ingredient works well alone - but in combination coffee and alcohol are an effective (based on my experience and on medical research) initial treatment along with aspirin when stroke threatens until you can get further treatment. And if you're wrong about it being a stroke, as the alternative MD says, an Irish coffee isn't likely to cause you harm. Be prepared! Stock up on these items now!!
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? According to the American Heart Association, TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but no lasting damage. This occurs when a blood clot temporarily clogs an artery. The symptoms occur rapidly and last a short time. The good thing is recovery is complete. It may recur and the risk for future stroke depends on the cause of TIA and management of risk factors.
Avatar n tn In my case I was having a stroke, and my brain was bleeding. Please all your doctor and tell him/her your symptoms and there the best to advise you.
Avatar f tn In patients with cerebellar stroke, with intensive physical and occupational therapy over weeks to months, symptoms may become minimal and may even resolve completely. In patients with cerebellar ataxia due to a tumor in the cerebellum, removal of the tumor often improves ataxia significantly, though some remaining symptoms may persist due to removal of normal cerebellar tissue following surgery. And so on.
Avatar n tn and you should know that symptoms after a stroke are severe at the beginning and first months but they get better after some months by therapy and medications. this is more visible in hemorrhagic cases because the bleeding will be absorbed. the golden time for therapy and improvement after stroke is the first 6 months so follow the treatment exactly especially at this time.
Avatar n tn I have been trying to find the answer to this question for over a year! My husband had a stroke and is left with double vision. The doctors are saying nothing can be done. Best thing to do is check with a neuro-opthamalogist. They deal with disorders of the brain and we see because of our brains...the eyes are just a window. There is a surgery I have heard of where the muscles in the eyes are tightened to take away the double vision.
Avatar f tn ll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn its now three weeks but the symptoms persists....
Avatar f tn Until a few years ago, pharmaceutical companies were billing HRT as the virtual ‘fountain of youth’ for women, claiming that it could not only help with the vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes, but that it could prevent osteoporosis, and possibly even lower your chances of having heart disease, Alzheimer’s, stroke, and even certain types of cancers. Many doctors bought the sales pitch, and were routinely handing out HRT like candy to women as soon as they started peri.
2190999 tn?1504988891 Last year I was diagnosed with migraines after having stroke symptoms for several weeks in March and again in June. I take a baby apirin a day per my neurologist, Im 42, smoke ocassionally, and have just started taking an oral contraceptive again. Should I stop the oral contraceptive? And if I don't, do I risk experiencing more stroke symptoms? Are these migraine-strokes benign, and do I run the risk of having permanent symptoms?
2190999 tn?1504988891 Hi, a migraine is a type of headache, caused by spasms of the arteries leading into the head. Stroke, TIAs and migraine can share certain symptoms (visual disturbances, numbness, tingling, speech difficulties and muscle weakness). Problems occur when TIA is mistakenly thought to be migraine symptoms. TIA or transient ischemic attack, which as the name indicates there is a temporary lack of blood flow to a particular part of the brain.
1211508 tn?1343079605 In the wake of Houston Texans' coach Gary Kubiak (a middle age, ex football player who "looks" physically fit still) having a stroke and now my friend, a 32 year old female having one last night, I began to wonder why it happened to them. Are strokes like heart attacks in that they can technically happen to anyone and at any time, but are more likely to occur if you are older, have high BP, high cholesterol, genetic predisposition, etc???
Avatar f tn I researched Evista online and found that it is linked to increased risk of ovarian cancer and stroke, in addition to other nasty symptoms I have never experienced (including hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia). I am afraid to take this drug, too, and don't know what to do. Has anyone else been in this situation?
Avatar n tn My mother is believed to have suffered a stroke recently but we are not being told anything, after about a week of numbness and pins and needles she has lost all use of the right hand, there has been some numbness and slight slurring of the speach, she is now unable to hold a proper conversation due to forgetting what she was about to say mid sentence and gets headaches in well lit areas like shopping malls.
Avatar f tn the numbness and tingling is only on the outside part of my rib, the inside (facing my ribs) feels normal, aside from heaviness. It's been over an hour and it hasn't gone away or gotten better. It feels a little bit worse, in fact. I can still move it freely, but it just feels so strange. And when I pick anything up, I feel like I'm going to drop it. Could it just be a pinched nerve? Thanks!

Avatar n tn What is the preferred optimal treatment for a 65 year old recovered stroke patient (only mild aphasia) diagnosed with Patent formanen ovale? Is it the use of the closure device or medication with blood thinners?
Avatar n tn I know there are many factors that play into choosing the correct treatment and many different points of view on this. Thanks in advance for your reply. .
Avatar f tn My husband has Hepatitis C, undergone Pegasys Treatment which had to be immediately stopped after two weeks as it caused stroke, severe confusion, hypertension and extreme change of behavior. He has been coughing daily, more so at night for past year. Dry cough. Was told it was probably sinuses. Can you explain what this report says and what your recommendations are? Hepatologist nurse told us they would see him in six months. I am very concerned.
