1344197 tn?1392819171 A number of studies have suggested that hysterectomy with the removal of ovaries prior to age 50 may increase the risk for heart attack and stroke.

Avatar n tn I'm 78, had a stroke in Oct.2007, feed through a belly tube, can't feel heat or cold on my right side, lost some equilibrium but walk without walker or cane.

Avatar n tn So for the time being, I think I would opt for the endarterectomy if I had to give a choice. I know the minimal invasive option always sounds great. I think if you google carotid endarterectomy vs stenting , you will be presented with a lot of information. I think medication will see you through for a long time yet, giving you lots of time to study this.

667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.

98474 tn?1240105274 Hi All, Well we made it to Scottsdale and to the Mayo Clinic this am. I had a 2 hour appt with the neuro and I liked him verymuch, He listened well and didn't seem to form opinions before he heard all of my timeline etc. I had my list of meds, timeline, cover letter from me telling him what I expected from my visit and all my test results and notes from the neuros I have seen. He ordered another lumbar puncture and mris of brain, and two parts of my spine.
Avatar f tn I had a stroke and Chiari and have been to Chiari specialists that can not tell me which come first. Now after 5 years post op, I am having anxiety/ depression, major pressure and pain in my head. I have been to Mayo Clinic and everything is "Fine!" Now that I have lost my new job due to my illness and my neurosurgeon says my Chiari is fine, then why am I now having symptoms I have never had before? No one can tell me! I freak put at nothing and stay depressed about everything.
Avatar f tn Many of the the standard symptoms we consider are symptoms for ovca are symptoms for porphyria. There are 8 different types of porphyria. They've sent more blood & urine to The Mayo to determine which type I have which will determine the course of action, the treatment plan. These tests will also take at least a month. Gratefully, I have had a doctor that has always attempted to at very least treat for pain although that has not always worked, at least I've had that.

Avatar n tn Currently, there is no medicine or drugs that to effectively lower your Lp(a). A high Lp(a) is genetically linked. Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories. Talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results. The test is usually given as a marker for risk of heart disease. High levels of lipoproteins can increase the risk of heart disease....check the risk of atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries), stroke, and heart attack.
1003418 tn?1250185999 The doctor thought I had meningitis due to caring for a pt in the ER with meningitis a week earlier. These symptoms persisted for 3 months and every test seemed to be performed with only positive ANA, elevated IgG and IgM levels as well as pancytopenia. I seem to recover therefore I never followed up with a Rheumatologist. In May of 2009 I had sudden visual disturbances (distortions) lasting 10 seconds. It happened twice.
