Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms pregnancy


Avatar n tn Dear Blessed: I am sorry that you have had a stroke. Hos is the pregnancy? I hope that it is still going well. Pregnancy can cause a hypercoagulable state, and that can lead to stroke. Although the thalamus is not the most common site, more so in hypertensive stroke. Although you might not have hypertension, you might have had an episode that caused this stroke (unknown). Did they say that your talamic stroke was hemorrhagic or ischemic?
Avatar n tn My husband and I would like to have a child, but are unsure about my health issues and pregnancy. My stroke was due to a dissection in my left vertebral artery and I have been told that it has healed completely. However, I experience dizziness and unwell feelings around menstruation, which I'm sure is due to hormones, which makes me nervous about pregnancy. Any information would be helpful. I have looked on the internet and have not really found anything.
Avatar n tn Hi there! I too am a young stroke survivor with left side weakness. The arm and hand are very frustrating, aren't they? Thankfully,I had my 2 daughters before my stroke, but my youngest was only 13 months when it happened. It took awhile for her to get used to me, but with some practice I eventually was able to change diapers, bathe the girls, and now 2 1/2 years later with some more progress under my belt, I can carry my 3 year-old to bed or short distances if I need to.
Avatar n tn I am 34 and had a stroke during my 25th week of my pregnancy. I had AVMs. I had my first stroke at 25 also by an AVM. I was told by my neurosurgeon it was ok to get pregnant but I don't think any human can predict if its safe to have children if you had a previous stroke. Now the doctors say its up to me if I want to try again. They just don't know. I am in the same boat wanting to know if their are others out their that had an ok pregnancy after a stroke.
580765 tn?1274922960 I have noticed no correlation between the occurrence of the episodes and any other conditions, other than the progression of the stroke- like symptoms in and around the time of the racing episodes. A neurologist that I saw Tuesday ruled out MS and other neurological conditions, based on several clear MRIs, nerve conduction tests, and lumbar puncture results. He said that all of my symptoms were likely due to an electrial misfire in my heart.
469720 tn?1388149949 At all ages, more women than men die of stroke. Use of birth control pills and pregnancy pose special stroke risks for women. Prior stroke, TIA or heart attack - The risk of stroke for someone who has already had one is many times that of a person who has not. Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) are "warning strokes" that produce stroke-like symptoms but no lasting damage. TIAs are strong predictors of stroke.
Avatar f tn Enjoy every moment and be grateful everyday you will miss it I promise you and this is coming from someone who had a difficult pregnancy and almost a stroke because my blood pressure sky rocketed
Avatar n tn my period finally became normal andfor aybe the past four months i've been feeling sick i've taken pregnancy tests all came up negative.
Avatar n tn The cardiomyopathy or increased clotting of blood during and immediately following pregnancy could have led to stroke, or it could be due to any other preexisting condition like hypertension. The possibility of another stroke depends on the actual reason behind it. Some time before a stroke, some people experience a few minutes of weakness on one side or part of the body, which is due to temporary lack of oxygen to the brain- called a transient ischemic attack.
Avatar n tn My husband aged 54 had a (embolic) stoke in July, which affected his left side, he recovered quickly and was able to give a brilliant speech at our daughters wedding on august 9th 2008, then suddenly at the end of August his speech began to deteriorate, they detected another stroke which caused this. Now he has no other symptoms other than this speech slur, has anyone any advice. He has been referred to speach therapist, but as yet not seen anyone.
Avatar n tn My sister-in-law had a hemorrhagic stroke with a intracerebral hemorrhage. This was on May 18th. They have done a Ventriculostomy. The gas man found her in the driveway. We figure it had been somewhere between 20-35 mins. before she was found. They have her in a medically induced coma where they say she will stay for the next 3-4 weeks. Is this normal? Also, they did a cat scan on the 18th, and 19th and we were told the bleeding had stopped.
Avatar n tn I am worried that I may have brain tumor, ms, mini stroke? what could this be. Doctor seems to think it is pregnancy related.I also have had a sore spot behind my rt ear for about a week.It is behind the ear up by the top of my ear.Sore if press on it but more so when applying rubbing pressure.Please help.These symptoms do not occur all at the same time.Example If face bothers me not my tingling, vise versa.
Avatar n tn 2003 MRI/MRA with and without contrast performed everything normal, April 2005 CT scan done normal, Feb 2006 eye doctor appointment and everything normal. However, the minor headaches I am having now are accompanied with some other symptoms that I have never had before. Weakness in right arm/wrist, extreme discomfort in left side of neck along with pain, short term memory lapses, loss of balance, urge to vomit (but nothing yet) and ringing in left ear.
Avatar n tn So before embarking on an invasive procedure like a PFO closure, perhaps your stroke workup needs to looked at again in terms of where the stroke is on MRI, what you blood vessels look like on an MR angiogram and what may be the most likely cause of the stroke. The relationship between PFO and stroke is still a bit controversial - there are trials going to on evalaute the benefit of closure. The other episodes do not sound typical for TIA or migraine.
Avatar n tn I went into the er before finding out I was pregnant, with stroke symptoms, my anxiety was so bad that I feared for my life. It turns out that I was six weeks pregnant with my first baby, and was told not to worry about my health, because pregnancy can do some crazy things to the body, and that i probably had a prior problem with it all my life, but it just magnified with becoming preggo.. I got on a safe medication to help ease it, but now I just take it whenever I need It.
Avatar n tn If you didn't have the spine imaged, you should talk to your doc as MS can show up there too. Hypothyroidism can certainly be a cause of your symptoms. Once treated adequately, your symptoms may improve. Another test that may be helpful is an EMG to see if this a problem of your peripheral nerves. Laboratory workup such as ANA, sed rate, blood count and electrolye profile can also help rule out other potential problems such as lupus and other rheumatological disorders.
Avatar f tn I am 36 years old with no medical issues. I was supposed to go thru ivf in jan but I had a ich stroke in dec. I did not have any symptoms of stroke except massive excruciating headache. I did not lose speach or movement. I do not have any children and have infertility so I have to do in vitro fertilization. But now I have to get signed off from high risk obgyn before my ivf dr will allow.
Avatar n tn I have just started my third trimester of pregnancy and I am 25years old, I thought the symptoms i was having was pregnancy related until i began to read more into TIA and discovered they were very close to the symptoms i was experiencing however I am only 25 and didn't think it was possible.
Avatar f tn Dont grow in last 4 yers,and dont efect my cemicals or hormons. I am pregnant now. When i was diagnost i have simptoms of mini stroke. Then I take MRI,and doct.told me it's tumor. Before that i had 3 kids in tree yers no complications. Is it any risk for me. After that I had 3 miskarg. because or probobly i didnt know that my Vitamin d is low. I had problem gating pregnent with next pregnency probably because my Vitamin D is low. Now i taking vitamin D. How much i shold take.
Avatar n tn I understood you first post and I believe my post related to NO by listing what the usual symptoms are, and I would have varified your symptoms to thyroid/nodule. Sorry I wasn't consice in my first post as well. So as to be concise in this post, as answer to your question of listed symptoms,is....NO! Your symptoms are not "associated to thyroid nodule/problem". Good Luck!
Avatar f tn i live in ontario, canada If i rule out AVM or any other brain disorder, blood issues and my cholesterol and blood pressure stays fine through pregnancy and i got no other disease. should i not have a stroke? doctors think My mom had a mini stroke at age 45, my grandmother on my moms side had diabetes and two heart attacks..last one killed her. My dad had a two heart attacks in his 50's, survived both. all are smokers and obese. My sister had healthy no complications in her pregnancy.
1038794 tn?1252925252 Agree with ENTMD, sounds Neurovascular. As ENTMD suggested, I would try to get an appointment sooner to see the Neurologist. Definitely no ENT Situation I think. Sounds like you had preeclampsia before this birth and it has not really resolved. You should also post in the Maternal and Child Community.
Avatar n tn TOgether with the relative nutritional and metabolic imbalance after pregancy, this could explain your symptoms - you need to start looking after yourself. ANy focal neurological symptoms ie on one side of the body, need to be evaluated furhter though. THe episode before birth may have been related to high blood pressure?, and could conceivably be related to the right frontal spot. If you did develop any more focal symptoms see your doctor right away.
158812 tn?1189759426 The said the MRI was perfectly safe. Still don't know whats wrong with me. They thought I was having a stroke. Pregnancy is scary.

Avatar f tn Does any one have any idea why I have symptoms that appear worse when I get pregnant? And if not any idea why sometimes I can go months with out symptoms than be bed bound for a week.
