Avatar n tn Occipital neuralgia is pain caused by damage to the occipital nerve - a bundle of nerve fibers that generally connects to sensory structures in the back (dorsal) side of the spinal column at the level of C2 (the second vertebra in the neck), though sometimes some of the fibers get integrated into nerve bundles at C1, C3, or C4.
Avatar n tn My husband who is 48 had a stroke 2 weeks ago on holiday. He is now back in the UK and is making progress. My question relates to his paralysis on hi right hand side. He has feeling but no movement at all. I have been told he should make a full recovery which is great but I am struggling to understand how these limbs can start to function again? Can anyone please help me?
Avatar n tn I am 35 years old, and currently on blood thinners for treatment of my dissections but no stroke that happened 1 year ago next week. I have a 10 year old son that I delivered vaginally, and all was normal. I have been going to Duke University hospital to a High Risk specialist and they strongly advise me not to get pregnant again.
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 f tn She had been under the care of an excellent hepatologist here in London in the UK. He saw her after the stroke, gave her his usual antibiotic protocol, but it didn't stop the HE. He seems to have given up on her. I believe she is not eligible for a transplant because of age, co morbidities. We were told this long before the stroke. I can't imagine the doctors haven't ruled out those viruses. She has been in &out of hospital since the stroke back in October of 2013.
Avatar f tn Nonetheless, I'm very interested to know what all who visit - professionals, experts and patients alike - here think about my questions. I'm a 52yo F in UK (think National Health Service - very different from American healthcare provision). Five years ago I had a sudden major brain attack.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn Just curious how many on this board are on treatment? I am a 2a genotype who is on shot 21 now. I had normal alts going in and still have the same alt level. No change from treatment. I live in southern ca. Unfortunatly, I worked during treatment. I even traveled for work( leaving Monday on a jet plane). My worst momemts were around shot 12 to 18. I was anemic and may still be. I have not taken a blood test in six weeks. Too lazy to find the doctors lab slip.
Avatar m tn Luckily my 24year old daughter who had just popped in mentioned to my wife, that this looked like a stroke, the paramedics who came out were shocked that on inspection I had not gone to the hospital for treatment the day before, they immediately took me into Doncaster Royal Infirmary for hospital treatment.
Avatar f tn I am on treatment, for the above confirmed illnesses, but ive been told that the stroke type symptoms are due to stress and called functional symptoms and I have been recommended for psychotherapy,but will not be allowed down this road until my depressions stabilises. My grown up children, aged 30, 24 and 21 and myself and wife are getting exccedingly worried, as I am having more of these episodes especially over the last 8-10months.
Avatar f tn I mention all of those factors because they do affect how I look at treatment and if I think treatment is worth it. Other factors I consider are as follows: I have already had problems from Hep C, and serious problems (systemic vasculitis). I know Hep C is not benign, even if the liver is not yet destroyed. I know Hep C can affect other organs and other body systems. The virus is not just kicking back reading or listening to music.

Avatar n tn Hi! You may be under treatment week now, so you can fly. It would be best to take a hopping flight where you can walk around at airport in between and change the flight. Otherwise, you can flex and relax knees, and walk around a long flight to prevent clots. However please do not travel without the permission of your treating physician. Take care!

1431003 tn?1283344673 Hi all, My father had a stroke last Thursday in the right side of his brain. I was actually with him when it happened and he was at the hospital with in the hour. For what ever reason he did not get a scan until the next morning and did not start the Aspirin treatment until around 16 hours after the stroke. He can speak quite well and see and read. Still not passed his swallow test though.
469720 tn?1388149949 Red meat has been conclusively linked to increased risk of heart attack, stroke and peripheral artery disease. Researchers have shown that independent of other risk factors, the risk of cardiovascular disease is increased. As if that isnt enough to compel you to step away from the next hamburger, I came across another story of contaminated beef that has been widely distributed throughout the states. Lets face it:spinach, peanut butter, beef.
575214 tn?1218043960 Hi, I understand that a Hypoplastic A1 segment is congenital. With the stroke I had , which they think a small clot came through my PFO (heart). Which is now closed... With the plavix and aspirin which will stop any blood from clotting in the future . Does this mean that the A1 segment is still blocked or since it is congenital malformed . Will I need to take plavix and aspirin for the rest of my life.

Avatar f tn I know it is different for people outside the UK as you have to pay for your treatment anyway. Another problem I have is that Natural Thyroid Hormones are not licensed to be used in the UK so the doctors prescribing it are personally responsible for my treatment which makes them more nervous about prescribing it. I will have to try and see if I can see someone else for my next appointment and see if I can persuade them to let me try Amour Thyroid.
Avatar m tn I have been tested in the last 3 month 3 times for chlamydia gonorrhoea a type specific herpes blood test, HIV All clear all three times the HSV 1 and HSV 2 herpes test was done at my request which was difficult to get done as its not standard procedure in the UK, but was clear anyway, (never had a cold soar) The doctor who was abrupt, said it looked like I had a tear in my Urethra and was larger than normal, even though they claimed they couldn't see anything? Caused by what?
