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!
338734 tn?1377160168 Went to hospital ER due to stroke symptoms. Had CT and MRI as well as bubble echo. Suggestion of shunt. To follow up with TEE.
1061009 tn?1260537094 felt like i was spinning, gonna pass out, called family doc and he told me to go to er to rule out possible stroke
282804 tn?1236833591 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.
713638 tn?1335358492 I was in danger of having a stroke or heart failure. I spend about 4-1/2 hours at the ER. They told me it was all due to stress and gave me some more medicine and sent me home.
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.
Avatar f tn Glad he went to the ER but if he had a stroke, the clot busting meds only work in the first few hours, so it is best to go asap, not wait but it is hard to get men to do anything. There can be other issues like bell's palsy where suddenly half the face is paralyzed so it does not have to be a stroke but better safe than sorry. Let us know how it turns out.

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 will be 10 weeks tomorrow but yesterday I got the feeling when your limbs are asleep that started in my left foot and moved up my leg, fingers, hand, arm and into my face then my vision got blurry and a headache. My Dr. Told me to go to the ER to make sure it wasnt a stroke or blood clot. They gave me a MRI and lots of tests and determined that the pregnancy hormones brought on a migraine. It was super scary but relieved it wasn't a blood clot or stroke. Has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar m tn Went to the ER today with shortness of breath and chest tightness. Was given breathing treatment and oral steroids.
1243333 tn?1296446902 Went for infusion treatment end up in er due to high blood pressure no iron treatment
578309 tn?1223302327 This summer started off with a bizarre hot flash feeling followed by a completely numb toe on my left foot. Hmm...I thought that was odd but just brushed if off. I had no time to really even worry about it. Then I was sitting down with my daughter in my lap when my right fingers suddenly went numb. I stood up in a panic when my nose and the right side of my face went numb as well. I slurred my words. My husband grabbed the kids and we drove to the ER.
Avatar f tn No he did not have a stroke. We are well aware of those signs, and he does not exhibit any of the classic signs. The right pupil reacts to light and works like it is supposed to. the left one is open and does not react to the light. He said his vision was blurry straight down the left side. Either way he is going to the doctors as soon as they open in the morning. And yes my choice was for him to go to the ER this afternoon when he told me about it.
Avatar f tn Accompany your friend and go to the the ER immediately for prompt treatment and to avoid possible serious complications. Take care!
Avatar n tn My 54-year old mother went into the ER 10 days ago for loss of vision in her right eye. They found a blood clot behind her right eye and preformed a ultra sound to find out where the blockage was coming from. A clot was found in the right artery in her neck. They started an I.V. to administer Heparin and during the treatment mom complained that the medicine was making her sick. Instead of checking her the nurse removed the meds from the I.V. and a little while later my mom had a massive stroke.

Avatar f tn Emergency (Inova Fair Oaks Hosp) visit this morning at 7:00 am-10:15 am. Was treated for asthma with Selomedrol and breathing treatments. DX: Asthma Excarbation. (wheezing/difficulty breathing).
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 m tn You should not be waiting to see a doctor when you suspect a TIA as if you had one, it is very possible you could have a stroke while waiting for treatment. Danger level is high & you need treatment started today! Please, won't you see the doctor today on this & if need be, go to the ER if the doctor can't squeeze you in today? Using a magnetic resonance machine, doing an MRA/MRV, is better than CT scan when looking for evidence of TIA (infarcts) in your head.
755322 tn?1330269114 Has it helped, yes and no. I feel my brain is sharper in that I can concentrate for longer periods of time than before. My over all fatigue is better but not as good as just after the procedure. I have slipped back a bit over the year. Walking is worse. I am not sure clearing internal jugular blockages and blockages in the Azygos vein has much to do with walking performance. It helped in the beginning a bit, but that could have been a placebo effect. My walking has deteriorated pretty badly.
Avatar n tn My friend was dx with IDC - 1.7cm - grade 1 - No lymph involvement - ER neg - HER2+. That is all I have so far on tumor characteristics. She has had a lumpectomy and has said she will have no further treatment. (Oh, margins were clean also). I am urging her to have at least radiation and she won't hear of it. She meets with the onc next week. What do you think of her choice for no further treatment? Thank you.
Avatar f tn 30pm and got home around 12:00am.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am here on behalf of my mom who has cirrhosis. She is 68. Quit drinking & smoking several years ago. Hepatic encephalopathy was controlled with rifaximin & lactulose until she suffered a stroke Oct 13, 2013. Now her liver is decompensated & She is getting beat up by the HE. Doctors say there is nothing more to be done. "Put her in an institution." She is now on warfarin as well as other meds.
Avatar f tn at the beginning of the year my boyfriend (22 years old) had stroke like symptoms and was brought to the Er. the right side of his body went numb, he had severe headache that came and went and was totally confused did not even know his phone number or anything. After having a CT of his head the doctors said it was negative, no sign of stroke.
