Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms diabetes


Avatar n tn Without the ability to obtain a history from you and examine you, I can not comment on a formal diagnosis or treatment plan for your symptoms. However, I will try to provide you with some information regarding this matter. There are many stroke preventative therapies, but it really depends on risk factors.
Avatar n tn What I thought. My second thought, if in fact a stroke, why are you not at the Drs vs here.
Avatar n tn However, it's typically associated more with low blood sugar than high. Diabetes symptoms include (but are not limited to) blurred vision, increased thirst, frequent urination, and fatigue.
Avatar f tn I do not know if I am at the right forum, but I have always heard that burning and numbness in hands and feet is a sign of diabetes!!!!??? Anyone ever experience these sensations before? If it is serious we will go to the doc but it is hard because we have no insurance and cannot afford it. Should we go anyway?
Avatar n tn There is no essential difference in treatment of heat exhaustion or heat stroke between a diabetic and non-diabetic. As far as heat goes, encouraging hydration is the best way to prevent the problem. Salt tablets are issued in the military, but that is a decision for your medical director. Generally, reassurance, holding their hands or wrists, having them lie down and elevating the feet slightly (eight to ten inches) is all you can do.
Avatar f tn It sounds like you have suffered a stroke, that was likely caused in part by your diabetes. However, you are still young to have a stroke, despite diabetes, and it is important to exclude a predisposition to clotting, what is termed a "hypercoagulable state" in young people with stroke, even if they have other risk factors for stroke (such as diabetes). This is important because the treatment to prevent further stroke may differ. This can be tested mainly with blood tests.
Avatar n tn I just wanted to add, that you know your body better than anyone else and if it was a TIA/Mini Stroke, those are temporary and usually do not show up on x-rays but people that do have TIA's have something like a 30% chance of having another TIA or actually stroke within the following year. So you really need to be aware of stroke symptoms and if you get any of these symptoms you need to go straight to the ER.
5113191 tn?1363787993 These symptoms have been going on for about a month. P.S. When I first started experiencing the symptoms I went into the ER and was admitted into the hospital for 5 days. The ran a bunch of tests and found out that I have a protien C deficiancy. Becasue if this the upped my aspirin regimen from a baby aspirin to a full one (325mg). So I AM NOT IGNORING THIS BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF ANYONE IS EXPERIENCING THIS OR IF ANYONE HAS ADVICE.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? There are a number of causes, which can cause numbness in the arm, face and leg, but most commonly it could be due to stroke or compromised blood supply in these areas which is extremely rare to occur. Have you ever got your blood pressure checked? Any kidney problems or diabetes? Are you obese? All these answers can help me to get to a diagnosis. What you mentioned is kind of hemiparesis. Is there any weakness or inability to move voluntarily in the limbs?
Avatar f tn His speech is slightly slurred, but no other stroke symptoms apply (dizziness, vomitting, blurred vision, etc..)... within the last 48 hours, he has lost the ability to swallow (even water)... many tests have been run and more are scheduled, but not one Doc has given us any ideas or suspicions. Any ideas out there?
Avatar m tn Hi,my 57 year old mother suffered a hemorrhagic stroke,she was pretty healty before this,but she does smoke.The doc said it was 4 cm and it was on her left side,her vision is affected and her capability to read. She was in the hospital 5 days,her blood pressure,blood work,everything looks good which is very weird!Other then that she was conscious all the time,no memory loss or anything like that. My question is why the docs didn't give her any medication while in the hospital or after?
469720 tn?1388149949 Diabetes mellitus - Diabetes is an independent risk factor for stroke. Many people with diabetes also have high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and are overweight. This increases their risk even more. While diabetes is treatable, the presence of the disease still increases your risk of stroke. Carotid or other artery disease - The carotid arteries in your neck supply blood to your brain.
Avatar n tn I am a 49 yr old female, who smokes, no Hypertension or diabetes, I have had all symptoms of Stroke/TIA, I had radiating pain down L arm, numbing/tingling up L side of face, profuse sweating, dizziness, I also had slight pain across jaw, no weakness though, this has happened more than one time, all of my test come out negative, is that normal for a TIA that nothing shows? I am afraid that when or if I have a stroke, that will be it since everything comes up negative.
Avatar f tn In a patient the age of your daughter, the conventional causes of TIA and stroke present in older adults are absent (such as smoking, diabetes etc). However, patients of this age can still and do have TIAs and strokes.
Avatar n tn hyperglycemia (diabetes). I have experienced hypoglycemia on several occasions and my symptoms were quite similar to yours. See your doc right away.
Avatar m tn And sometimes there are no known risk factors as was the case with my stroke at age 56. So don't blame yourself or the doctors. Just know the symptoms of a stroke, because in most cases, if you get the person to the hospital within 3 hours, the sooner the better, they can reverse most of the stroke effects. Strokes can be very disabling and often kill. I know it's hard to take your mother's outcome. You take care.
207091 tn?1337713093 Hi, I'm not really sure what the symptoms could be, but I honestly don't think it's seizures or a stroke. Seizures you would've noticed twitching and loss of bowel or urinary control. A stroke would've affected one side of the body only, and she wouldn't have recovered so quickly. This could be a thyroid problem, or diabetes. You can try taking her food away for 6-8 hrs so she'll be ready to get tested for diabetes as soon as you get to the vet's office.
1271365 tn?1306763979 Migraine Symptoms That Mimic a Stroke i get these allot maybe 2 times a week my speech is slurred and i am not able to drink the drinks pour out the left side of my face and my left side of my body is numb when i get these episodes. I went to two dr's they can not give me a clue what it is i looked the information up about this problem on the internet and now i am worried can i be at risk of a damaging and permant disability because of it .
Avatar f tn Besides this blood thinners, controlling high risk factors like diabetes and hypertension and physical therapy are needed for recovery from stroke. So, take care and work towards improving from your stroke symptoms. Regards.
Avatar f tn I am 28. I had a stroke 2 yrs ago. About 6 months after the stroke i started having burning pain throughout my body, like a toothache or my blood was on fire. Does anyone here have similiar symptoms. I know pain is usually on one side, but mine is all over. I've been to many doctors, and I have yet to get a diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Hello. These symptoms look more like peripheral neuropathy. Have you been assessed for these symptoms by a Neurologist ? If you could not feel the pain due to the nail, it means there is numbness on the fingers. Have you checked for Diabetes ? And I would recommend a complete neurological examination at the hands of a Neurologist.
Avatar m tn She immediately called the hospital and the nurse on the line noted that she was slurring her speech, and that the symptoms described were similar to those of a miniature stroke. She left work and was admitted to the emergency room, where she had to wait until late evening until she was given a ct scan. It was approximately a 5 hour wait. The CT scan came back normal, she was not diagnosed with anything.
Avatar m tn These may include aspirin, certain blood thinners, or cholesterol-lowering medications. If there is diabetes, control of that will hopefully improve the risk of stroke as well. Additionally, eating a healthy diet, exercising, etc. are recommended. There are risk factors that one cannot avoid such as a family history of stroke, prior stroke, aging, etc. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
Avatar f tn And about PCOD, don’t worry as the commonest cause for irregular menstruation and anovulatory (eggless) cycles is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, where in due to hormonal irregularities the person has symptoms of irregular menstruation, weight gain, insulin resistance (diabetes) and excess androgenic activity causing facial hair. But the good news is that with medication the anovulatory cycles can be made ovulatory (with eggs) and the periods will also be regularized.
