Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms blood pressure

stroke

Avatar f tn During a stress response, blood vessels constrict and the blood pressure goes up. Often oxygen-rich blood cannot be supplied adequately to the brain, causing the symptoms of a mini stroke. In severe cases, increased pressure can cause the arteries in the brain to rupture and cause a hemorrhagic (bleed) stroke. All the best to your mom http://www.savingthebrain.
Avatar n tn There are other causes also that cause stroke, one being something called Atrial Fibrillation, which is an irregular heart beat, and this usually caused by high blood pressure, but not always. Other causes of stroke include any conditions that make the blood thick, such as cancers or autoimmune conditions, or inherited disorders.
Avatar n tn Also, there are high risks for stroke. Cholesterol levels can also be high. You need to keep the child’s blood pressure under control, find the cause of weight gain, and treat both weight and blood pressure. Medication, diet, lifestyle changes, and exercise will all play a crucial role. Please consult a doctor immediately. Take care!
Avatar n tn I am 52, white female with high cholesterol, low blood pressure but generally in good health. (possibly 10lb overweight) Does that sould like a stroke? What should I do? Should I worry? What type tests should I ask for if I went to the Doctor?
Avatar n tn Should ever experience these symptoms collectively, get yourself to an ER immediately because some the damage done by a stroke can be reversed if anti-coagulants are administered within 3 - 4hrs of the clot developing. The anti-coagulant, in and of itself, is a potent drug, so the ER would thoroughly vet you before administering it--which will include a check-up by the neurologist on call. I'm not a doctor, but judging by your post, I doubt you're having a stroke...
783212 tn?1295031606 I also have high blood pressure which has caused hypertensive retinopathy. I have high cholesterol, vitamin D deficiency and a doctor once thought I had Lupus. He did a blood test that came out negative and standing in front of me ( no further tests) says I have fibromyalgia. And then, more pills. I was diagnosed with Chrohns after a Colonoscopy and ultrasound but now the new doctor says that I have GERD and possibly an Ulcer.
Avatar f tn i've learned ppls symptoms can very and with all the new illnesses with similar symptoms they lucky to know. i had my stroke at the hospital while nurses were to busy chatting to have me admitted to be seen. the last thing i remember before was if they dont hurry it be to late. i woke up when a dr was yelling an i was being moved an all i heard before i watch the heart monitor flat line was him telling them he should have been called an they were to give me something..
Avatar n tn Hello, Chronic low blood pressure with no symptoms is almost never serious. Low blood pressure can be associated with hormonal problems like underactive thyroid, diabetes mellitus, low blood sugar, liver disease, heat stroke, heart failure etc.Certain diseases like autonomic neuropathy, nutritional diseases, and cardiovascular diseases can lead to low B.P .Drink more fluids and water. Several medications can be used to treat low blood pressure especially orthostatic hypotension.
1455892 tn?1285353218 Good Morning i have pcos hashis and in meno i have been trying for 3 years now to take thyroid meds i have tried them all i am on 1/2 synthroid now and still having terrible side effects erratic blood pressure feel very dizzy feeling like i am going to pass out internal tremors chest pain breathing problems fast heart rate followed by normal stiff neck sometimes shooting pains in head (sometimes) etc etc my last readings TSH 17 Free T4 2.85 Free T3 0.
Avatar n tn In my clinic, and indeed the CCF heart failure clinic, we strive for the lowest blood pressure that the person can tolerate without symptoms (dizziness, lack of energy, etc.). It is not infrequent that the blood pressures in my heart failure patients are in the 90s/50s range, although this range may be too low for some.
Avatar n tn Multiple studies have shown that patients with lower blood pressure, even in the normal zone have a lower risk of heart attack or stroke. Again, the lower the better without any symptoms of hypotension.
Avatar n tn He told me my blood pressure was 136/98. Is there something I can be doing to lower my diastolic pressure and perhaps stop the heart flutters or whatever it is. I am also experimenting headaches. he gave me some antibiotics to help with the cold symptoms and said if i still felt palpitations to come in a week for EKG...
Avatar n tn For the last 5 years I have had a feeling of extreme pressure in my head, at first sporadic but now pretty much constant. The symptoms are a sense of pressure around the temples, near the vein in the front (external) portion of the ear (near the temple), and a periodic tension/tightness in my cheeks & scalp.
Avatar n tn Is your high blood pressure being controlled with the meds? Did you check it this morning to see if it was high? I would recommend getting in to see your Dr today, as soon as possible.
Avatar n tn Hi, How is your mother? It is good that her blood pressure and tests done were fine. Stroke symptoms typically start suddenly and in most cases do not progress. This could indeed be age-related, but if it persists, you may need to have this checked for proper management. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn You need to get yourself a blood pressure cuff and learn to take orthostatic vital signs. Do a search on the internet. Sometimes post stroke light-headedness is from an inability of the body to compensate changes in body position by the brain ordering the blood vessels in the leg to contract, much as a "G" suit squeezes a pilots legs during maneuvers. You need to determine if the compensation is simply delayed or non-existent.
Avatar n tn Excluding a new stroke, do symptoms several months after a stroke get worse than symptoms at the time of the stroke. The symptoms after the stroke should get better or stay the same but not get worse, right? New scans show resolution, but symptoms persist.
Avatar f tn Has anybody experienced stroke symptoms? All day Saturday my left arm was kinda numb and tingling and the that night out of no where the tingling went up my neck to my face, my lips and tongue went numd, got hot and my heart was beating fast...laid down and it went away.
Avatar f tn If you are at risk of a stroke, they will take that seriously. Do you have preeclampsia? High blood pressure? PLEASE talk to your doctor. They often take babies very early for this or at least monitor you very carefully for when delivery is essential for YOUR health. What does your doctor say? My doctor will terminate when it is in the best interest but it is unique that you are 6 months along. Are you high risk? If you just wish to terminate on your own, that is different.
Avatar f tn Also, if you have not had your cholesterol checked, a fasting cholesterol level is very important to have checked, because treatment with specific cholesterol medications can also help prevent future stroke. Aggressive control of diabetes and any hypertension (high blood pressure) will also help prevent further strokes. Continued follow-up with your neurologist and primary doctor is recommended.
Avatar n tn On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
484698 tn?1208823583 Then when I had vertigo and dizzinessness, my brain is singing its boring tune, what if it's a stroke, I might stroke out, my blood pressure is high, go and check just to be sure. So you are not alone. It is a damn struggle. I am thinking of going back to meditation. I used to meditate for many years and it really did help me get through a stressful life with career, study, divorce, being a single mum etc.
Avatar n tn my doc put me on 100Mg of zoloft and mobic and then about an hour and a half after taking it for the first time I was in the hospital with left sided weakness, tingling, face droops, high (146 over 90) blood pressure, confusion. no stroke on ct or MRI. I stopped the medication but it happened again a week later. another MRI with contrast and still nothing. a year later and I still suffer form left sided weakness and personality changess that make me angry all the time. Nobody has any answers.
Avatar n tn I had some bad anxiety issues a few years ago, and the symptoms are very similar. During these attacks my blood pressure sky rockets. I check it yesterday after having one of these attacks and the reading was 165/110. Im quite sure it was much higher when I was actually having the symptoms since I was feeling much better at the time I took the reading.
Avatar m tn like YESTERDAY!!!! Blood Pressure is a silent villan and it is very serious. Yes you can have a stroke very easily and you need to know the symptoms and how to control what your eating and drinking. Also, did you just start exercising like crazy after maybe not doing so for a few years?? I'd wait and see a Dr. before you do anything in excess.
Avatar f tn Do you have any other symptoms like feeling dizzy or having a headache? Symptoms do not always present themselves with high blood pressure. Blood pressure that is too high or too low are both dangerous. Make an appointment to see your doctor. He will monitor your blood pressure over a few weeks to see if this is just a temporary thing or whether it stays elevated. If it stays elevated, you will be put on medication to reduce the blood pressure.
Avatar f tn There are many cause of high blood pressure, but uncontrolled high blood pressure can injure or kill you! It's sometimes called "the silent killer" because HBP has no symptoms, so you may not be aware that it's damaging your arteries, heart and other organs.
