stroke

Avatar n tn Husband woke up with dizziness, vertigo, vomiting at 3 AM last week. B/P 225/120 ER said he did not have a stroke ( according to CT scan.Can't do MRI due to stents which he got for a 95% blockage to his heart 4 yrs ago.) Cardiologist switched BP meds and B/P going down well on that now.He' still very fatigued, difficulty with spacial perception, walking etc...The Nuero Doc can't see him till May 1st. Any idea what's up with all of this and what kind of treatment we should pursue?
Avatar f tn If you or someone you care about is concerned about a stroke, please go to the ER/A&E/Casualty (I don't know what it's called in T&T) or call emergency services if you can not arrange for transport. Early treatment is vital. Slurred speech, sagging on one side of the face, difficulty in moving one side of the body. But it can be more subtle.
Avatar n tn I concur with mammo. Your symptoms indicate an irregular cardio system. Don't wait for a stroke or heart attack to happen, get your behind to an ER and get checked out!
282804 tn?1236837191 So, hearing that she needs to get to the ER immediately and get checked for signs of an oncoming stroke, our buddy Chris picks up the car keys and drives herself to the ER. LOL Only Chris. She was laughing and in good spirits and will call me back when she knows something. If she was going to stroke out I think she would have done it by now, but I don't know for sure.
Avatar f tn My dad is 87 years old and presented with dizziness and balance issues, including walking to the left and inability to stop. We took him to the ER where he was diagnosed with a stroke which turned out to be a TIA. That has resolved and the doctors say it stemmed from the artery at the neck. I think this would be the Basilar artery.
212161 tn?1537898045 so went to er after 5 hours of seeing if it would stop, got there bp was 203/103, hooked me up and was having massive palps, it last 10 hours. but thank GOD they were all benigh pacs. never in my 34 years of having them was they that bad. I do have them where they will last 8 hours but not that many. bad bad time, at 8 am this morning they just went away.
Avatar n tn The ENT Dr couldn't see any sign of a ear infection but the MRI scan did show the stroke in the Cerebellum so they sent me immediately back to the ER where I was admitted for the stroke. Unfortunately by that point no one could do anything to help with the actual stroke but I did get on a recovery plan and I'm doing pretty good so far.
1438751 tn?1285093678 About 4 months ago my son and I were cooking dinner and I got some pressure in my eyes and between above my nose... I got a little disoriented and lightheaded and leaned on the counter.... then I couldn't move the whole right side of my body for a few minuets... I don't know how long but I was so freaked out... I started thinking of what my mom said ABC's and that commercial about not being able to brush my own hair so I got as calm as I could and tried as hard as I could to move...
Avatar n tn I have suffered from migraines since I was about 15. I am now 42. My treatment is Depakote ER 1000mg daily. When I get a migraine I take Advil to help out with it. I've been taking Depakote (at this dose) since I was 30. We thought my migraines were coming from hormones. Three years ago I had a full hysterectomy/opharectamy (female issues). The headaches got better for a while then went back to being the same. I have taken .50 Estradiol since my hysterectomy.
Avatar n tn So I went to the ER that evening. There they did a CT scan of my head and did not find anything abnormal. The ER doctor chalked it up to bad side effects from the Maxalt which should go away on their own. He also said that I might have slept on my arm funny causing it to fall asleep. This was definitely not the case as I am brighter than that. Plus, had that been the case, I really do not think that the numbness would have lasted for so long.
Avatar n tn - so I'm thinking to myself - I must be having a stroke - so I called 911. ER doc did chest x-ray, CT Scan, EKG, blood work (cbc, chem 7, troponin(?)) Had to go back this morning for bilateral carotid duplex doppler ultrasound. Won't have results in until mid week. Got to visit my GP to get results. Anyway, ER doc said he couldn't believe that I have been seeing her for this long without having had more extensive work up than this. Will let you all know results.
Avatar n tn My mother, a healthy 61-year old, was admitted to ER after a mild stroke at her water aerobics class. Her condition deteriorated quickly in the ER as the stroke was hemmhoragic. It took hours to flush the Coumadin she had been taking for a thrombosis 2 years earlier.
Avatar f tn I am so sorry you suffered such a lack of veracity in treatment. I am not a medical professional but from the research I've done so far it sounds like a stroke. I don't want to instill any unnecessary worries though. I have read that Migraines, or even TIA's (mini strokes which usually resolve any damages or issues on their own), have the same display of symptoms as a stroke.
Avatar m tn doctort diagnose me stroke, I have sudden slurring speech, drooling, hearing loss, can't understand speech. and later muscle weakness in whole body, fell down stairs twice gashed my head. feel unconnected to my body and asleep. I still can't understand people speak, it's a blur and too fast. I think I have bad vascular problems and maybe hypercoagulation I'm not sure what treatments I should try, I haven't been able to get heparin script and only take aspirin, vit b12, ginko.
Avatar n tn NEVER, NEVER, NEVER wait to see your neurologist when you think you might have a stroke. Go IMEDIATELY to the ER so if you qualify you can get immediate IV TPA or clot busting medications. Migraines do not cause strokes. The risk factors include smoking, hypertension, hypercoagulation problems, cardiac problems, etc. I would suggest that you seek out why your having strokes. Then eliminate the risk factors.
Avatar n tn under my tongue, I had diffuculty which speech, my BP was normal but high range of normal, 128/94 which for me is very high. They then sent me to the ER in the ambulance they found that my blood glucose level was low-never had an issue before. They gave me an Chest Xray, CT scan and blood work all came back normal but they decided to keep me for observation. The next morning I had an MRI with contrast again normal.
744637 tn?1250806622 I have had several CM's and also a mild stroke. I always go to the ER and they run the tests, CT, MRI/MRA, Carotid Doppler, EKG, blood work, on and on. The first time it happened was the real deal, it indeed showed a small stroke and I was glad I went, my L. arm was numb and then I tried to talk and could not, it was like my tongue was swollen. I had a minimal amt. of headache on the R. side, which made sense, it was my L. arm that was affected.
Avatar n tn My friend recently smoked something she believed to be marijuana, but after doing so, her heart rate went from 68bpm to 246 bpm for approx. 15 min. She says the muscles in her eyes went numb, as did the feeling in her extremeties,& she experienced tingling/stinging in her chest. She also lost feeling in her throat & her speech was limited,with much stammering & pauses.
Avatar n tn I think you should be continuing treatment for stroke and get a review opinion from a neurologist regarding your numbness till your pinky finger. I feel it might be due to your nerve compression and nerve in question here is Ulnar nerve. Keep me informed. Bye.
2190999 tn?1504992491 Dear Doctor. You have helped me in the past, which i greatly appreciated. Also Sara told me to go get a new doctor, which is impossible for me to do in my state because i exposed some bad things about my health care & some political stuff. HERE IS MY QUESTION, SINCE I WAS ABLE TO GET MY PC, to give me my MRI from over 1 year ago! BUT 1st let me update a little. I had 1 nice doctor 'move on" & left me my records, which were a cerebral artery occlusion with cerebral infaret.
2175879 tn?1338358628 I have had diagnosed stokes/T.I.A.s. Now I am being told none of it happened, and that some "trigger" has caused these stroke like symptoms to manifest themselfs. Any direction on where to go now? Or if anyone else out there has had this happen to them. I have served honorably in the military, and have never lied about what is happening to me and all my healthcare professionals believe that I am telling the truth and not lying to get attention, out of work, or a disability claim.

Avatar n tn Hi, I'm a 21 yr old female who had a iscemic stroke 3 months ago caused by my pill. I'm almost back to normal now living my life which I was before the stroke. I'm on clopidagrel to thin my blood which I need to be on forever. I want to hear from anyone in the same age bracket - to talk to.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately docotrs and therapists do not know nothing they do not even have a progressive treatment for stroke in US hospitals. Just for curiosity go to www.lef.org and read about stroke treatment and you will understand what am I talking about. Sorry that I do not sound to positive but I went through too many stages of her strokes and spoke with too many doctors to ubderstand that I know more then some of them. Funny, ah?
Avatar n tn My father had a similar sounding stroke on Dec. 8, 2006. He seemed pretty alert, spoke well, could swallow, etc. His major problems were left side paralysis and double vision. After about three weeks, he took his first steps and within 2 weeks of that was walking 40 feet with a walker. He was not able to start moving his left hand until about 4 weeks in. At that point, he could move all fingers and make a loose fist.
Avatar n tn My mom passes away a month ago, and I'm trying to figure out if she had a heart attack, stroke, or both. I don't know if it really matters either way, but I need to tell my future doctors. My mom was taken to the hospital for shortness of breath, pressure in chest, being light headed, and BP 236/110. The er said she did not have a heart attack, but they admitted her. The next day they did a couple of tests. The cardiogram showed the front half of her heart wasn't working.
Avatar n tn probably not a stroke but a neurological problem of a different type. eyes rolling in the back of the head what do you mean exactly? left side of the body paralyzed do you mean it literally? you can't use the arm and the leg on that side?
645800 tn?1466864555 I am only to use the EpiPen if I have breathing problems on the was for treatment and then I am only to go to an ER if I do use the EpiPen. So as soon as I pick those up and got into my car I took one of the benydrill. This perked up for the long drive home and it didn't take long for all of the swelling to again clear up (reaction # 5). Summery: The answer to question 1 according to the doctors I talked with is yes the CellCept did lessen the impact of the sting on my body.
Avatar m tn If you are e-positive then the end of treatment is becoming e-negative. If you are e-negative then the end of treatment is less clear and needs further discussion.
