Avatar f tn ) When I asked her if there was any way to check my circulation she said there were no simple tests for that and with my symptoms, not to worry. My grandfather and uncle died of stroke, my mother and another uncle have had blood clots. With everything that is coming out about women, heart disease, PAD, etc... and the symptoms I am having should I simply exercise more and not be concerned?

Avatar n tn You know, migraines do up the risk of stroke a bit, especially in young women taking birth control pills --- it may be,unfortunately, just several circumstances (including the PFO, perhaps) that all came together to produce the stroke. Hopefully, it will never happen again! Good luck.

You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
Avatar m tn However, endurance training is also beneficial for bone density, for muscle mass, for oxidative stress. And these benefits are known to be greater if training was started early in life," he added. While physical activity can't stop age-related declines in heart structure and function, it can slow them down, Matelot noted. He said "it's never too late to change your way of life and get more physically active. This will always be beneficial for the heart and well-being.
Avatar f tn I am 40 years old (my husband is 39), and soon after we married (3 years ago), my husband had neurosurgery for a brain tumor, but then soon after suffered a stroke. He is doing much better, but our newlywed experience was marked by this trauma. I'm interested in finding women in my age range who have experienced something similar and would be interested in offering support to one another. I live in the DC metropolitan area. Thanks!
Avatar n tn There have been some studies in the literature that have shown migraines to be a predisposing risk factor for stroke in young adults, epsecially young women. The mechanism is not absolutely defined, but vascular instability (unstable vasodilation and constriction of the arteries in the brain) and possibly activation of the body's clotting system are thought to play a role. There are clinical syndromes such as CADASIL that include migraine and stroke as part of the syndrome.
Avatar f tn 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. If an inlammatory cause (what is termed a vasculitis) is suspected, then a spinal tap would be needed, but if your blood tests and CTA do not suggest a vasculitis, this would be less likely.

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.
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. Given the fact that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women, and hysterectomy is such a common surgery, further investigation was warranted. A recent European study published in the European Heart Journal has helped bring this issue to the forefront. This large study looked at 800,000 women under the age of 50.

Avatar n tn Have been told of great success stories for young stroke victims from people as the young brain can do many things that may be an older brain would not. Does any one have any success stories to share w/ us - it just gives us hope - he is a 6'2 , 240 lb high school football player set to play college football next year pre stroke. Any info would help - thank you and God Bless.
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.
1474856 tn?1288289049 numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system.

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.
Avatar n tn Sorry to hear about your recent stroke. Sounds like you've had a thorough workup for a clotting disorder, including APS (this is the lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin antibody test as well as a PTT and platelet count which I'm sure was already done). We have seen a number of young women such as yourself who had a venous thrombosis while on oral contraceptives, which we feel is a risk factor in itself.
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.
Avatar n tn Trust me when i say this should help! It worked great for me. Plus... It makes for a really healthy and delicious treat. =) good luck!
Avatar n tn I feel like this may be one more disappointment for my dad esspecially. Any advice ? How do young pregnant women deal with the negativity?
