Avatar f tn Why were you put on Plavix in the beginning... for heart attack or stroke? Absolutely going off of it can lead to a mini-stroke/TIA, but going odd wont CAUSE one. Unfortunately you have to go off before a biopsy as it makes your blood thinner and there is too much risk of bleeding. Don't worry too much about the TIA, most have no long standing effects unless you have a LOT of them. So you want to go back on the Plavix and DON'T miss any doses! It should work right away.

Wide excisions are often complicated due to the disease characteristics.

Two major groups of arrhythmias are bradycardia and tachycardia. Bradycardia( is a slower heart rate than the normal, usually less than 60beats per minute. Sometimes it can be normal or related to a side effect of medications. The reason why these can cause syncope/nearsyncope is because the heart is not pumping enough blood to the brain.

Avatar f tn Hi, I am here on behalf of my mom who has cirrhosis. She is 68. Quit drinking & smoking several years ago.

Avatar f tn But people benefit most from the surgery if it is done within 2 weeks of the stroke or TIA. Delaying surgery longer than 2 weeks increases the risk for stroke, because people are more likely to have a stroke in the first few days and weeks after a first stroke or a TIA. The likelihood of complications from carotid endarterectomy varies, depending on the skill and experience of the surgeon.

Avatar f tn my sister is 17yrs old and 37 weeks pregnant...she had a mini stroke 2 days is fine at this point and the neurologist on duty told us the best course of action is for her to take a blood thinner injection daily and hopefully the baby wouldn't come before the medicine had time to do its job. She is already dialated to 2... Would it be better to take the baby now? is this the best course of action? what are the chances of another stroke during labor?
Avatar f tn This one is the most common one for people ages 30-60 which is also considered young for a stroke. And what generally causes it is trauma from a car accident, chiropractic treatment, sneezing, coughing, or just spontaneously for no reason. That's the kind of stroke that I had, totally out of the blue with no risk factors. But given the many young people who answered that posting, strokes do just happen to very young people with no reason. So sorry that it happened to you.
