Avatar f tn in the sense of symptoms of a stroke and stroke warning as signs of a pathology that could lead eventually to a stroke. the only way that could indicate higher risk of stroke is that it was caused by a vascular problem, but you should have a bit more going on I guess. it also depends on your age. maybe it was caused by sudden sun exposure. why are you worried about having a stroke, do you have other symptoms? is there someone in your family who's had a stroke?
Avatar n tn Hi Sorry to hear of your husband's episode :( If indeed he has had a TIA (mini stroke), treat it is a warning. Find out the cause & do everything you can to address that cause. This is his chance yo stop the big one happpening.
Avatar n tn I also felt weak suddenly while walking and lost my balance and fell down, but recovered myself and started walking again. I have been wondering whether these are stroke warning signs? Most sites mention numbness in arm, not fingers. I measured my Blood pressure, it is around 130-94mm. I am on hypertension medication and last month had ECG and echo cardiogram and blood tests which were pretty normal. Should I go and meet my physician? I am currently travelling, Hence worried.
Avatar n tn (from strokassociation.org - but also applies to pets) Also called TIAs, transient ischemic attacks are minor or warning strokes. In a TIA, conditions indicative of an ischemic stroke are present and the typical stroke warning signs develop. However, the obstruction (blood clot) occurs for a short time and tends to resolve itself through normal mechanisms. Even though the symptoms disappear after a short time, TIAs are strong indicators of a possible major stroke.
Avatar m tn Getting a stroke is one of the scariest things that would happen to a person because it can cause a lot of bad things to happen to them that anyone would not like. In the US alone there are about 700,000+ US citizens who have a stroke and that is a scary number. Do you know why a person gets a stroke? That is because your brain did not get blood to it and it will get damaged as a result hence the stroke.

Avatar f tn t carry anything and my right hand is used for my cane. Since my stroke had absolutely no warning signs, no high BP, no headaches, just collapsed on floor, I doubt I would use or trust any device.
Avatar n tn The doctor said hypertension was the cause. There seemed to be no warning signs except on the day it happened. He had a terrible headache and went downhill from there. He was taking all his medication--plavix, 325 mg of asprin, blood pressure medicine, etc. and was doing fine. He did have very bad back pain but finally got relief and was back to himself for a month and a half. This stroke came on so suddenly....did I miss something? His pressure was under control and he was feeling good.

350555 tn?1196587877 Well, I feel like I have symptoms of a stroke. Today my left side of my face and my left hand and fingers feel like they are tingling. More like pins and needles. I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....
Avatar f tn it could be possible that you are having symptoms of a stroke the loss of sensation whether it be in your leg hand or face are some of the warning signs, i strongly suggest that you see a neurologist, as i can tell you a stroke is not a fun thing after having one myself because of ignoring the warning signs and ended up losing the ability and use of my hand.
Avatar n tn you should be seen in an Emergency room - you may be having TIAs which are warning signs of stroke -- if you're at risk for stroke, they can find out why and possibly stop it before it happens.

Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator.

Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
