Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms women over 50


Avatar n tn The neurologist thinks these headaches are migraines and not related to the stroke, but he also says that the headache symptoms she describes are not typical in migraines. Could her headaches and cerebellum stroke be related also? I'm concerned that the doctor is being too quick to assume the stroke occured before birth when he also says that an MRI can NOT show the age of a stroke.

299260 tn?1304219705 Can you believe that it is just right around the corner? In a little over 1 week! I have been sick, sick, sick.

Avatar n tn Hi everyone, I am glad to hear that i am not the only one out there with these wierd symptoms. I am a 32 year old who had a baby a little over a month ago and since then I have developed leg cramps(drs ruled out blood clots) waking up with achy, tingly fingers mostly left side, tingling on bottom of my feet and toes, severe headahes started a couple months ago but have gotten very bad the past week or two-I have them from time I wake up til I go to sleep, wake up with them.
Avatar n tn I have had very similiar symptoms that you describe. About 2 months ago, I had numbness/tingling almost all over (hands, arms, feet, lower legs, back, neck, face, head). I was convinced I had MS. I went to the doctor had some routine blood tests. I also had a brain MRI which came back clear. I then developed some small jerks and twitches (fasciculations). I went to a MS specialist at the Mellen Center who said I had benign fasciculations and had nothing to worry about.
378112 tn?1199897215 Dear Jackie, I had pseudotumer cerebri in 1994, it usually happens to overweight women before the age of 50. I can't say I was that overweight at the time, in fact I was on an exercise regimen and losing weight, the PTC was a complete mystery. Like you I had black spots in front of my visual field. The docs found papilledema. At first they thought I had a brain tumor but the MRI didn't find any tumors - did find a couple of white spots - presumably from migraines.
451975 tn?1372332199 I just went to the hospital on Easter with Stroke like symptoms and was treated as such. I am 35 years old. They did all the normal tests MRI, MRA, and tons of blood work. Although the CT scan showed something that they thought may have been a mini stroke the other tests ruled it out and they diagnosed me with a silent or atypical migraine. I had all symptoms of a stroke. The numbness, tingling, drooping of the eyes and mouth on one side, no facial expressions and I could hardly talk.

Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar n tn I used to spend the whole evening exercising 5-6 days a week in my mid-20s back in college without ever getting any symptoms such as these. But, now in my early 50's I come down with flu-like symptoms even with a mild weight workout--but no problems with walking for 40-50 minutes uphill to break a mild sweat. My internist Dr.'s response has been: "I don't know what to say!
Avatar n tn Symptoms of AC vary widely, depending on the hormones produced by the tumor. About 50% of tumors overproduce cortisol, causing symptoms of Cushings Syndrome. Tumors that produce androgen (the "male" hormone), may cause no symptoms at all in men, but women may experience excess growth of facial and body hair, deepened voice or irregular menstruation, or menstruation stopping altogether.

Avatar n tn I don't think you realize the risks of taking these high doses of hormones so often that your chance of stroke, clots, and irregular bleeding really increases. Also, you need to be having sex with one person you trust if you are not using a condom. I'm not judging. I was there one time too. And I love sex- but you need to be safe and your birth control needs to be effective. Good Luck--Go see your local Nurse Practitioner or Medical Doctor. See a woman-much easier to talk to.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn Funnily enough when i excersise most intensely (football, running etc) i'm fine but gradual and seemingly innocuous activity (golf practice, painting, cleaning) i get hot very qucikly and get an all over prickly ich sensation without any visiual symptoms. The most distressing times are at night in bed. I have to stand near an open window and if it persists still, I go and sleep in the spare room.
Avatar n tn know the feeling had all that for 11.5 months now plus others, counted 50 symptoms in total. incl ppink eye, brain fog, vertigo, nausia etc, etc tests all neg up to 11 months, its destroyed me combination of the chronic sickness but also the anxiety it has caused. I have also had severe muscle wasting for past 6 months. my possible exposure was anal/oral with thai tranny then fevers etc 9 days later.
Avatar n tn I have gone to literally over 14 doctors- orthos,neurolgists, neurosurgeons, general practioners, and none of them has acknowledged my symptoms, but will only look at my MRIs and say, "everything's fine". I have stopped going because I am so sick of paying them for not doing anything for me. My problem is related to my lower back and on one MRI a radiologist actually called it what it was- a slight? herniation of L5-S1 and a central disk "protrusion" in L4-L5.
