stroke

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 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 I had a stroke in my cerebellum 4 months ago. I let the symptoms keep on for almost five days. I am not picture perfect health but it just runs deep in my family history, I have no blocked arteries.. I have small vessel disease and dr. said it can only be helped with an aspirin. I am not OLD, I consider myself young.
Avatar n tn Clotting disorders can be a primary cause for stroke related problems in young women. I have never heard anyone speak of stroke caused by migraine per se..From what I have read and my own problems I would agree with tactical that Basiliar Artery Migraine is possible as they present like TIA and stroke at times. But I would be sure that they check out Clotting disorder and Antiphospholipid Antibody.
Avatar n tn Due to the relationship between the migrain and onset of your stroke symptoms, you may not have to look for any other causes. If I remember right the BAM induced stroke is ischemic. There is info on the internet on this. I'm very sorry to hear about your baby.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am now 37, but had a stroke when I was 28. I went on a rollercoaster ride of a free-fall ride, before the ride even came to a stop I thought I had pulled a muscle in the back of my neck, it just kind of hurt/ached and I didn't feel good about it at all. I was rubbing my neck afterward complaining about it as my hubby and friends were laughing at the good ride. We thought nothing of it at the time.
Avatar n tn I am now 33 and am thinking about having another child, but none of my doctors know for sure why I had a stroke in the first place. Both my ob and neurologist think that I should be fine, but they really have never seen this before. I keep looking for other opinions....and suggestions? Anyone out there that had a baby after a stroke?
Avatar n tn I'm going to a high risk clinic to get more informaiton but am so happy to hear of other people who have experienced what I have. I have yet to be able to find a support group even for young women stroke survivors. I can be reached at ***@**** if anyone would ever like to talk- I know I need it from time to time-those days where you just wish things were normal for you . Good luck and blessings with everyone.
Avatar n tn I too had a stroke when I was 29...2 weeks after I gave birth to my son...That was 4 1/2 years ago. I have been fine ever since,even though my corotid arteries are still occluded. I had a bilateral corotid dissection. I would also like to have more kids and my doctors THINK it should be ok, but there are no guarantees!!
299260 tn?1304219705 I already started feeling AF type of symptoms and I have no sore bbs, just tender and full, which is normal for me. I am thinking that if my temp rises tomorrow I might do a test, if not, I guess I will wait. I have to say that the good thing about thinking about my chart and "suppose" possibilites is that is has helped me to keep my mind busy and not stress about the LAP. Happy Wednesday!

Avatar n tn I have been taking tamoxifen for the last year and am aware that I am at an increased risk for having a stroke caused by blood clots. I wasn't too concerned about this side effect until my migraines became much more frequent, four in the last year, and three in the last four months. Also worrisome is that the aura has started when I have been in the middle of a run, which I do daily, and this is new.
Avatar n tn I suggest to all three of you to insist that test be done. I went for years with symptoms that could of been treated sooner before my disks became a major problem. If disks are bugling and they aren't treated, they can herniate and all hell can happen. If you have neuro symptoms that are not getting better in a few eeks, INSIST on tests. Keep a log of everything you experience and when and were you experience them and share this with your MDs.
Avatar dr m tn She even proudly demonstrated to many thousands of women viewers on how she uses the CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) mask every night. I’m sure that by doing so she was hoping to raise awareness for more women to get tested for this all-too-common yet frequently undiagnosed condition. Unfortunately, her frank disclosure may have done little to dispel the myths surrounding sleep apnea.
Avatar n tn It seems like a lot of people in all age groups have these peculiar symptoms. Most Doctors I go to say I am to young for these symptoms, they normally happen when your much older and the body ageing.
Avatar dr m tn As long as the medical community segregates medical conditions without looking at the whole picture, we’ll continue to have discrepancies in the quality of care for not only for women, but for men as well.

Avatar n tn I'm a 13 year old girl and very scared. I have been feeling a lot of symptoms to a stroke or heart attack, but everyone says that I'm too young to have anything wrong with my heart, and that it is muscular. But I'm feeling a lot of chest pain and other symptoms that won't go away and I want to clear things up. Otherwise, I'm very active and healthy.
378112 tn?1199897215 pain behind my eyes, weakness of my right arm and leg and now I have dizzy spells (more like going from sober to full drunken state in a matter of ten seconds) to the point where I can't pick up my head or move at all. My words become stuttered and/or slurred as if I'm in the middle of a stroke! No dr believed me this was going on until he seen it with his eyes (my neurologist, mind you) So again, he has no clue what's going on and has just given me more pain pills to ease my troubles!!!!!
Avatar n tn Visual and auditory hallucinations were quite exceptional and debilitating. Skin was on fire and all the rest. Symptoms lasted for three to four weeks. Even had to learn how to walk again. My choice the last time was to get someone to sign me into the psych ward at the hospital. I got help and support and am doing well.
451975 tn?1372332199 No. I haven't thought about that possibility. My youngest daughter started having very strange, 'epilepsy type' episodes, as a baby that continued on through adolescense. They ranged from mild focal 'seizures' to 'grand mal like' seizures'. She also had something the doctors said were 'alternating hemiplegic like seizures'.
Avatar n tn However, if the whole right side was involved, then this is less likely. Finally, MS can present with vague neurological symptoms especially in young women (don't know your demographics). The MRI next should be helpful in this matter. Somatosensory evoked potentials looking at the pathway of the nerve in your foot to your brain may also be helpful, especially if MS is suspected. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I still have some mild symptoms, and no diagnosis. I have met many other women w/ these problems, and many of them took the epidural. I have thought for some while now that it caused all of this. I am 23 from Southwest, VA. How old is your daughter?? Was this her 2st birth?
Avatar n tn I had a few doctors tell me this actually. Are women just not made for birthcontrol? geez I tell ya. I am taking a test this week and than again next if I don't start by next week. I have 2 kids already. The second was conceived while on the patch.. hmm..
Avatar n tn So as you can see, I have an explanation for everything that has happened to me, and then I was reading a magazine about these poor young women who have auto immune diseases and all these types and then the sentence that could possibly change my life, a woman found out she had MS when she started experiencing tingling in her arm and one terrifying instthings I keep writing off are really something else. I know that you all are good at saying that sounds like MS that doesn’t.
Avatar n tn But, my encouragement for all is that it does get better very soon, usually 3 days and the symptoms start to go away. I feel like I am full of cement and can barely move, no energy, cant sleep, all the normal stuff that happens in WD. I was at one time given Oxy and I elected to go cold turkey. This is a very bad idea and please don't ever try OXY by going cold turkey, it is worse than just about anything you can think of.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing the same symptoms for the past 2 years. It came on very suddenly at a time when I was exercising regularly every morning on the stairmaster and lifting weights every evening. Since that time I have forced myself to work through the weight lifting and have cut out the the stairmaster (which did cause a lot of sweating). I found that after a few days the flu like symptoms would diminish from the weight lifting.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn Even though I have strong voice, lessons turned out to be painful. And here is something that temporarily stopped all Chiari symptoms for me. Pregnancy. If you are scared to get pregnant because you don’t know how you will manage pregnancy sickness on top of Chiari pains you might be pleasantly surprised. For the course of 2 my pregnancies all chiari symptoms ceased from second trimester to the end of pregnancy.
1483064 tn?1291633937 I've just joined this group from sunny QLD in Australia, having just today received what passes for a diagnosis (in the absence of other explanations for my symptoms). I'm 36 years old, with three children (aged 11, 18 months, and 2 months), and a wonderfully supportive partner who works from home and is a fantastic help! My MS journey started a year ago with reduced sensation on my two big toes, not numb but rather a weird rubbery feeling to the skin.
