Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms blood pressure


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 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 m tn You need to go to the Dr. 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 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 m tn now my blood pressure has been running left arm 160 over 88 and right arm 180 over 110 this doesnt seem to be a great concern to my physician but it is a great concern to me.
Avatar f tn Yesterday we could not get a blood pressure reading on left arm or wrist using 2 different monitors. Hospice nurse felt very weak pulse in foot as well. Any suggestions as to what this might be? Blood clot, stroke, no circulation to left side? Also, left arm is tingling and cannot use arm to lift herself from chair.

To avoid misdiagnosis, always request your lab results. Vitamin B12 serum - optimal is over 800pg/mL or 600pmol/L. Homocysteine - healthy is 6.3umol/L. The higher the homocysteine level, the more at risk of heart attack and stroke.
1398693 tn?1343684738 A high diastolic can be caused by stiffening of the arteries, through age, or through coronary artery disease As people become older, the diastolic pressure will begin to decrease and the systolic blood pressure begins to rise and becomes more important. ...There is a differentiation with diastolic and age. For the younger people, the diastolic blood pressure is an important metric.
Avatar m tn Hello, my father -aged 62- is suffering from dizziness since that morning and he cannot get off the bed. His blood pressure is higher than the usual and it's getting higher. My mother is afraid that these are signs of a stroke and maybe we'll need to take him to hospital. What else could cause these symptoms?
Avatar f tn So anyways, I was told I have low blood pressure. My problems have been for over a year, tired, (went from being extremely hyper person/ single mom with 3 kids running non stop and living off of 4 hours a sleep.) and feeling like I was stopping breathing at night. Had a fainting episode in that time frame where they found I need the pace maker. So now 4 months later I still have alot of symptoms that wont go away.
783212 tn?1295028006 Well, other the a family history of strokes I am wondering if having high blood pressure puts me at risk. Recent tests on my heart say its fine. But my blood pressure had been high and recently found out that I have vessel damage behind my eyes due to high blood pressure. I also have vessel damage on a brain MRI. I am just wondering how high blood pressure is bad if my heart is fine.
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 m tn I have normal blood pressure does bradycardia link to blood pressure? I sometimes feel heavy, even a little brain fuzzy, when I get up in morning until had shower & got going then I'm fine. Is this related? 4. Why do I sometimes have what seem like judder/flutter lasting 5,6,7 seconds,like a brrrrrrrrrring of very fast beats? Once when this happened, took my pulse but it felt normal. maybe I did it wrong that time.
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 If you answered no to either of the questions above, I think it is important that you get the tests to check for potential damage from a stroke and talk with your doctor about starting blood pressure medication. The blood pressure medication may help your symptoms as from the info in your post, it seems that your symptoms are related to the increased blood pressure over the past 5 days. Please keep us updated on how you are feeling. Take care.
11452490 tn?1418747669 I am not a doctor but I really think that if your blood pressure is high enough to cause symptoms like that, and it does sound like what I have heard T I A s deascibe as, then maybe you shoulf get your friend to take you to the emergency room. At the very least, please call your doctor's number. Most have answering services to forward emergency calls or have someone covering weekend/evening calls, if the practice has more than just one person in it.

Avatar f tn I have been receptive to the changing view because one of my thinking colleagues pointed out to me some 30 years ago that elevated systolic blood pressure would seem to play more of a role in the development of left ventricular hypertrophy and stroke than high diastolic blood pressure. Now there is considerable evidence to support the concept that systolic hypertension is a good predictor of future cardiovascular disease.
Avatar f tn in the sense of symptoms of a stroke and stroke warning as signs of a pathology that could lead eventually to a stroke. the only way that could indicate higher risk of stroke is that it was caused by a vascular problem, but you should have a bit more going on I guess. it also depends on your age. maybe it was caused by sudden sun exposure. why are you worried about having a stroke, do you have other symptoms? is there someone in your family who's had a stroke?
Avatar f tn More than be concerned you need to get her to an emergency room immediately for this type of blood pressure ...she is at a high risk of having a CVA or stroke and that is not a good thing at all....that is a very dangerous blood pressure and it needs to be monitored....i would take her to the E,R, immediately if you are still getting those readings. Do not take chances with her life it is like playing Russian Roulette with a blood pressure that high.............good luck to you both......
