Common Questions and Answers about Stroke victims products


Avatar n tn Those victims who are 'lucky' enough to realise initially that something is unusually wrong, those who are lucky enough to have access to a computer, those who are 'lucky' enough to have had such serious adverse effects that a visit to the doctor was impossible (ie, those who had bad zaps etc) and so did an internet search that day to see what would cause such symptoms (thinking it was the onset of stroke, or brain tumour) - THOSE VICTIMS are the ones who are bringing the information in the
Avatar n tn The rest of the time I sleep like the dead and often not return too the land of the living for 12-20 hours. The doctors tell me this is common for stroke victims and any one with brain injuries. I know the feeling of tightness in the chest and the feeling that I will pass out. I have blacked out a number of times and have hit the floor hard in public and at home. The heart is controlled by the brain so if the brain is damaged then there can be problems with heart function, breathing.

Avatar n tn Some of what I have read here leads me to believe that a TIA is a stroke that totally reverses itself and all symptoms go away within 24 hrs. Other postings indicate that if symptoms continue or periodically return, then that is an indication that it was more than just a TIA or that there are continuing problems.
619930 tn?1260377854 BTW I dealt chiefly with the elderly in my years doing physical therapy. I saw hundreds of skin conditions, and stroke victims with bed sores. Trying to keep their limbs from atrophy during stroke recovery also required my to use many creams and preparations in a effort to aide thie healing. So, I do have some knowledge of what I'm speaking of.
Avatar f tn 1-866-886-5529 Is the number you call for a case evaluation, which I found at: Why on earth should one have to suffer physically and financially due to anothers mistakes? WE go to our doctors, they give us prscriptions, we trust them to keep us safe and they trust the testing that was done on these meds..
Avatar n tn From what I know about ALS IT USUALLY TAKES ITS VICTIMS VERY RAPIDLY, NOT WITHIN A SPAN OF 5-6 YEARS. Typically very quickly as the body deteriorates rapidly as the muscles start to weaken and in the end breating cannot even be done on your own.
Avatar m tn I'm starting to think that with the heart attacks and hardening of the artieries not being impacated by lower cholesterol of the victims of heart attacks etc. That in fact Cholesterol may NOT be the issue at all. I'm seriously thinking of stopping my Statin. As my levels were not outrageously high anyhow. And I now excercise regularly and eat better etc.
Avatar m tn and lives to write about it, then goes on to train medical professionals on how to treat stroke victims. AMAZING. I found it extremely helpful for my own situation and it gave me HOPE. Sometimes that it is in short supply in our situation.
Avatar m tn Good Doctors will not prescribe medication unless necessary. If I go to my Doctor and say "I feel fine", she will not prescribe anything unless a blood test states otherwise. For example, if you are rushed to hospital because you are having a stroke, do you A) have clot busting medication , OR B) say "don't worry, I will eat fruit and veg instead".

Avatar f tn So who is right here? Remember I worked with accident and stroke victims?? I saw some pitiful cases of chronic pain...and for years no one really helped patients..they were too worried about their liscenses..and this has not gotten much better. I once asked a doctor why...if he knew how toxic acetominophen is was it still being pushed....and he said "because we are monitored constantly for how many scripts we write"....
Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?
Avatar n tn These companies, LIKE ANY OTHER COMPANY, must make a profit to survive, and for them to promote their product in a positive light while downplaying the negatives is what any company does, they shouldn't be faulted for that. Also - NO, their products are not perfect for everyone, and YES, they may cause some people some serious problems (so do automobiles, faulty condoms, and Jack Daniels whiskey}. That doesn't mean they should be stricken from the public.
Avatar f tn I also was liscensed and did physical therapy for both alternatives and orthopedic/stroke patients under MD care. Some was in office, some was in private homes for stroke yes I made house calls. What I observed regarding the chiropractic/naturopathic community was that even when they learned and knew something was harmful, or ineffective, the alternatives I knew did not alter their ways.
Avatar f tn A drug made from rattlesnake venom may be able successfully to treat victims of stroke, researchers have claimed. The researchers claim the experimental drug, called Ancrod, lowers levels of a blood-clotting substance in the blood and may be able to reverse the effects of a stroke.
Avatar m tn The dark side to cigarette smoking continues to affect those weighed down by the addiction that is caused by cigarettes, and tobacco companies are sworn each year to grossly benefit from the hardships of those victims that become addicted to their products. For me personally I have everything to invest when it comes to arguing how the tobacco companies have manipulated my mother’s life for the worse. Am I being bias when illustrating her fall from grace? Absolutely!
Avatar n tn Did you know that Lyme Disease only starts with a rash in 40% of it's victims, but that the second symptom is a flu like symptom that doctors mistake for mono or strep or many other things and then it goes into a zillion other symptoms that come and stay for a few weeks before changing to other symptoms? The tests for Lyme are less than 50% accurate. It is diagnosed by the symptoms and most doctors don't have a handle on what the symptoms are.
Avatar f tn We know that there is still much progress to be made.She like most brain trauma victims still seems to hang her head to one side, still has co-ordination problems, still has spacial problems with feeding & grooming herself & may be visioned impaired but her fighting spirirt gives us encouragement & hope that she will eventually be able to lead some sort of reasonably good life.

Avatar n tn Both these products are very harmful. Since the removal of these products, there has been NO smell of smoke for either of us!!!! For all you smoke smell sufferers, consider the cleaning products that you are being exposed to either at work, home and even in stores that have shiny floors. Just recently and after being smoke free for a couple weeks, I was shopping in a department store and it began again for me.
1199040 tn?1265239024 The withdrawal included both intramuscular and intravenous products. Each lot contains about 17,000 vials. Drug companies were very sloppy throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's so alot of bad juju got through to the public. Our public watchdogs were asleep in the doghouse most of the time.
233616 tn?1312790796 on lots of accident and stroke victims...the last 15 years of which was MD's only in both the field of physical therapy, rehab, hospice care, and also in teaching anatomy/massage/muscle reprogramming at a local no, I am not an MD, but there are some things I picked up on and still retain, one of which is, that people who know little on a topic often are the most accusatory lot. Why this is I leave t the readers.
475555 tn?1469307939 Not, that I have illusions about their good intentions - they are machines for making wealth and morality plays no more a role in their operation than in my toaster's, but it's always seemed a stroke of luck that interests coincided. As best I can tell, essentially *all* hcv research is pharma funded (check the competing interests section of any hcv-related publication; funding acknowledgments for clinical studies; conference sponsors, etc.) If not them who else ?
Avatar f tn show her the law suits. altho those just point out the stroke victims mainly. My fiance actually brought up that maybe I needed to go see a therapist because I wasn't the same as what I used to be. I actually ended up slapping him across the face when he got home from his bachelor party and then crying hysterically because I thought he was leaving me for good when his best man took him to his house for the night.
Avatar n tn My husband developed migraine headaches after a sever stroke about 5 years ago. He went thru all the depakote, etc. for depression, and then in early 2005 had another stroke. He was then started on Topamax. He has lost 40 lbs, and he cannot afford to lose any more. But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss.
