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 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 f tn I am not trying to scare you but a stroke is rather serious. Do some research and if you think the symptoms match up force her to see a doctor. whether she believes in them or not this could save her from having a more serious stroke, which could do anything from paralyzing one side of the body or even death. I'm sorry to scare or worry. As I said, I may be wrong, this is only a best guess from a college student, who works with children and took a first aid and cpr course.
Avatar f tn I had stroke at the age of 26. Do you know anyone that's happen to? My neurologist a Said they couldn't find any reason this should have happen to me.
Avatar f tn I had a isometric stroke Feb 24, they put me on Xarelto which made me bleed bad! They just took me off and now started Plavix and aspirin. Can you take the birth control pill with Plavix? My periods are now horrible with major bleeding and I only stopped for a few days and started my period again and it has not stopped and heavy bleeding with clots. Getting back on the birth control pill I feel sure would fix that.
464054 tn?1223823033 Among women who were later treated for stroke, the study showed that many of them reported symptoms that were different from the typical stroke symptoms. Aside from the classic stroke symptoms, a woman may have: loss of consciousness or fainting, shortness of breath, falls or accidents, sudden pain in the face, chest, arms or legs, seizure, sudden hiccups, sudden nausea, sudden tiredness, and sudden palpitations.

Pre-hysterectomy (thank GOD that thing is GONE!) when my husband and I would go on motorcycle trips once or twice a year, the timing was always just wrong. Every last trip it seemed like I had to pack an extra saddle bag full of supplies. Much as I love bike trips, it's no fun when you've got a swollen belly full of glass shards.
Avatar f tn i am 25, want a baby in 3 years but seriously terrified!!!! i get heart palpitations/anxiety attacks everytime future husband talks about kids and worse thing is i want them too! but i keep thinking i will have a stroke and die. I was born at 24 weeks premature...had couple issues as a infant/kid but as far as i know im perfectly healthy, which i consider myself very lucky since most preemies end up with alot of health issues.
Avatar f tn If there was evidence of an acute stroke on the MRI, investigation for causes of stroke in a young person (of which there are many many causes including blood clots from various areas of the body including heart and legs, various clotting tendencies including the clotting tendency that occurs in all women around pregnancy but also other hereditary or non-hereditary clotting disorders, and some genetic disorders such as CADASIL and mitochondrial disorders).
Avatar f tn Hi I had a stroke 3 months ago. I am 33. It was scary coz I always thought strokes only happened to old people. Is there anyone else out there who's had a stroke at a young age?
Avatar n tn Recently I was at my friends house for a social gathering and I experienced what I thought at the time was a mini stroke. Symptoms appeared out of nowhere and included drooping of facial muscles on left side of face, slurring and difficulty forming sentences, chest pain, visual hallucinations (including but not limited to room breathing i.e lights getting brighter and dimmer), as well as numbness of my limbs and face and trouble standing/dizziness.
Avatar n tn These could be symptoms of stroke also but you are too young to get stroke unless and until you have a risk factor for stroke like High BP. In the meantime take OTC pain killers, apply ice packs on the affected part of head. A cu of coffee may also help. Keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I am at 25 year old women was born at 25 weeks premature in 1989 weighing 1 pound.
Avatar m tn t know the fact that it is extremely rare to get a stroke at a young age. You must a blood clotting disorder and plaque accumulations in one or both carotid arteries. This is very unlikely to happen to a young guy. Just to be sure you can have a CBC test done and check your cholesterol etc... Another preventive method is healthy diet and exercise. Taking 1 baby aspirin a day is a good preventive method but do you really need this?
Avatar f tn ll see improvement in your symptoms if it is part of your problem. The first few days, symptoms might get worse before they get better, or they might not. Stick with the diet (if you'd like to try it) for 3 months to see if it helps you. Leave me a message if you have any questions. Hairloss is almost always (according to what I've read) a combination of hormonal imbalance and autoimmune disease.
Avatar n tn A women is having symptoms of a stroke but test come back negative of no stroke, what is the cause of the stroke symptoms?
Avatar f tn ll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I had severe pre-eclampsia with the first pregnancy, had to deliver prematurely, My bp was 110/62 with both pregs until the eclampsia kicked in. My father had a diseased kidney removed 30 yrs ago, all he remembers is that it had cysts.
Avatar n tn I was sent to the hospital for stroke symptoms and kept overnight for testing. I was checked for MS and stoke, but all was clear. They told me that I was having Atypical migraines or "silent migraines" that can cause stroke like symptoms without the head pain. I have been to 2 neuro's and have been told the same thing. I am trying to change my diet and I am going to see a hematologist to get my anemia under control.
