Avatar f tn stopping alcohol intake can improve the ataxia but if it is severe, some permanent symptoms may remain. In patients with cerebellar stroke, with intensive physical and occupational therapy over weeks to months, symptoms may become minimal and may even resolve completely.

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.
Avatar f tn Just wondered if there are any "young" stroke survivors out there. My very healthy athletic husband had an unexplained massive right side stroke Sept 2014 at age 47, (yah, no spring chicken I know, but still...) He got the TPA in time, however he had a bleed anyway causing more damage and an emergency craniotomy for the swelling. He is lucky to have survived but the stroke has taken it's toll on him, but he is fighting hard to make a comeback.

But I definitely agree with staying away from stimulants like caffeine. Also energy drinks are a huge culprit. D stay away from those.

Avatar f tn She also complained of lost motor skills; for example, she was helping our young daughter with home work and could not write or print letters or numbers. Each time she gets this pain she has trouble seeing, especially in the right eye along with ringing in her ears. It usually gets better within 2-5min. I am extremely concerned as I cannot get her to go get checked by a doctor as she "does not believe in doctors". (she believed in them when our 4 kids were born, believe me ).
Avatar f tn By any chance was your stroke a carotid artery dissection? This one is the most common one for people ages 30-60 which is also considered young for a stroke. And what generally causes it is trauma from a car accident, chiropractic treatment, sneezing, coughing, or just spontaneously for no reason. That's the kind of stroke that I had, totally out of the blue with no risk factors.
Avatar f tn You have to wonder why is Stroke affecting so many young people nowadays.
352007 tn?1372857881 For those who are women and are diagnosed with MS who are premenapausal as well as postmenapausal with hormonal therapy, do you find that prior to your menses that you're symptoms worsen or every other month or does nothing happen at all?
464054 tn?1223823033 Among women who were later treated for stroke, the study showed that many of them reported symptoms that were different from the typical stroke symptoms. Aside from the classic stroke symptoms, a woman may have: loss of consciousness or fainting, shortness of breath, falls or accidents, sudden pain in the face, chest, arms or legs, seizure, sudden hiccups, sudden nausea, sudden tiredness, and sudden palpitations.

Avatar f tn i am 25, want a baby in 3 years but seriously terrified!!!! i get heart palpitations/anxiety attacks everytime future husband talks about kids and worse thing is i want them too! but i keep thinking i will have a stroke and die. I was born at 24 weeks premature...had couple issues as a infant/kid but as far as i know im perfectly healthy, which i consider myself very lucky since most preemies end up with alot of health issues.
Avatar f tn If there was evidence of an acute stroke on the MRI, investigation for causes of stroke in a young person (of which there are many many causes including blood clots from various areas of the body including heart and legs, various clotting tendencies including the clotting tendency that occurs in all women around pregnancy but also other hereditary or non-hereditary clotting disorders, and some genetic disorders such as CADASIL and mitochondrial disorders).
Avatar f tn Hi I had a stroke 3 months ago. I am 33. It was scary coz I always thought strokes only happened to old people. Is there anyone else out there who's had a stroke at a young age?
667937 tn?1227758698 GO TO YOUR DOCTOR !!!!! HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN TELL YOU WHAT IS WHAT ??? AND NO ONE IS TOO YOUNG OR TOO OLD TO GET A STROKE OR SOMETHING .....
Avatar n tn Remember that while emergency rooms are the appropriate choice for an acute situation like stroke symptoms, that you then should follow up with your primary care doctor or a neurologist after. We recommend you see a pcp or neurologist now which it does sound like you've had some follow up to discuss lack of feeling in your toe. Here is some general information on TIA's. https://www.webmd.com/stroke/what-is-tia#1 How exactly did they diagnose you with a TIA?
6818786 tn?1385132293 Thanks for the response. My GP referred me for a 24 hour EKG which I just had. I get the results of that on Tuesday. I spent the first 22 years of my life in New Zealand, but I recently moved to London for work. not that I've been working much in the last month.
Avatar n tn These could be symptoms of stroke also but you are too young to get stroke unless and until you have a risk factor for stroke like High BP. In the meantime take OTC pain killers, apply ice packs on the affected part of head. A cu of coffee may also help. Keep us posted.
Avatar f tn ll see improvement in your symptoms if it is part of your problem. The first few days, symptoms might get worse before they get better, or they might not. Stick with the diet (if you'd like to try it) for 3 months to see if it helps you. Leave me a message if you have any questions. Hairloss is almost always (according to what I've read) a combination of hormonal imbalance and autoimmune disease.
Avatar f tn High BP is one of the risk factors for stroke but stroke can occur in patients with normal BP if there are other risk factors present like high cholesterol levels, smoking and alcoholism and overweight people. You can discuss this possibility with your treating doctor. The diagnosis can be made only by a clinical examination and tests. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn What I would be worried about is stroke. Can she talk normally? Is she confused? If you ask her to repeat a sentence does she slur her words or does it sound normal? Does she have a bad headache? Can she lift the arm that is numb? If she can't talk normally or can't lift her arm and so forth then she may be having a stroke and you have to take her into the Emergency Room right away. Diabetes can increase her risk for a stroke as well and also peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage.
