stroke

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 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 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.
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 I do hope that you do well in the future and remain Stroke free. you are so young and should not have to be dealing with this. I would love to know what they discover about the cause of your stroke and how things go for you in the future. Please if you would like write to me and keep me updated on how your doing..Your in my prayers and Best Wishes to you...
Avatar n tn hi there my name is jen. like you i had a stroke at a young age, i was 24 and feb 2005 i had a tia on feb 10 and a ischemic on feb 13. i was in the hospital for 2 1/2 months, i would have stayed longer but i wanted to get the hell out of there! it really felt like a constant hangover 24/7, dizzy the room spinning all of the time, vomiting 24/7, unable to move my whole left side. i felt like a doll being poked for blood 6 times a day!
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 he did a stroke study on young women and I am one of them. My neurologist is the best...Dr. Wityk at Hopkins and people travel all over the country to see him. I would like to speak with you more at length regarding this if possible.
Avatar n tn I just found out that high levels can cause stroke! I also recovered very quickly and have no residual symptoms. I do have to say that having a baby is definitely motiviation to get better quickly.
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!
299260 tn?1304219705 I've been on Lupron before, so I am prepare to feel the hot flashes and all of the other menoupase symptoms the Lupron will produce in my body....I am ok about it, I HAVE TO! I was really sad that this lap didn't produce the expected results, but now that I am feeling better, I am ok about going at it again in a few months. Thank you all for you words of support...you are all amazing! ;o) Arlotheslug: I am really happy to see you here, what will be your next move?
Avatar n tn I have two grandparents, one on each side of the family who died fairly young, both at 66 years old, of stroke. I am now very concerned about having a stroke, especially in light of the studies that have linked classical migraines and increased stroke risk. I fear I have compounded the risk by taking tamoxifen. My question is, from a neurological point of view, would it be wise for me to discontinue taking tamoxifen.
Avatar n tn I understand that not all Diabetics have these symptoms. In a large group of diabetics one young man mentioned that he suffered muscle cramps. Everyone looked surprised, including the doctors.I was the only other person who knew what he meant. Symptoms of IBS disappeared completely after going on insulin. Hope you all find answers soon.
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 Sleep apnea is a very common condition that if left untreated, can cause anything from depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, heart attack or stroke. It’s estimated that up to 1/4 of all men and 1/10 of all women may have at least some degree of sleep apnea. The frightening statistic is that about 90% of women with sleep apnea are not diagnosed. Instead they are being treated for the complications of untreated sleep apnea, rather than the cause itself.
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 dr m tn While this may be true in this particular population, it can also occur in young thin women. This has been proven in multiple published research studies. But many young women will look at a celebrity like Rosie O’Donnell and think, "I’m not like her. I’m skinny. I can’t have sleep apnea". The sad truth is, even many doctors still think that a young thin person can’t have obstructive sleep apnea.
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.
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 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 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 am thinking of having mine removed, simply because I'm tired of spending so much energy worrying about these symptoms. It is truly amazing how many women are questioning their sanity because of the Mirena, myself included! Bottom line, ladies- honor your bodies and make the best decision for your health.
Avatar m tn Increased thirst. Increased hunger (especially after eating). Dry mouth. Nausea and occasionally vomiting. Frequent urination. Fatigue (weak, tired feeling). Blurred vision. Numbness or tingling of the hands or feet. Frequent infections of the skin, urinary tract or vagina. Rarely, a person may be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after presenting to the hospital in a diabetic coma. How Is It Diagnosed?
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 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 You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
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.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have been diagnosed with Chiari malformation 10 years ago and I had time to observe my symptoms, try to detect what is triggering them and come up with personal pain managing or pain resolving routines (with special workout routine I can restore normal CSF fluid and go from extreme pain to being pain free in just couple hours, I might write about that in another post).
Avatar n tn Katzoomie has the best advice here. During a ct scan (2006), for abdominal problems, they discovered a tumor IN my left adrenal gland. There are two parts to the adrenal, the cortex (outer) and the medulla (inner). My tumor is in the medulla which controls your epinephrine and norepinephrine, stress hormones that affect the parts of the brain where attention and responding actions are controlled.
