Avatar n tn Some risk factors for stroke apply only to women, including pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. These risk factors are tied to hormonal fluctuations, changes in blood volume, tendency to form blood clots, and other physical changes that affect a woman in different stages of life."

299260 tn?1304219705 *********************************************************************************************** Hi, Ladies! It's been so long. It's much easier for me to get on Facebook because I can check quickly with my phone while feeding a baby... It's harder to catch up on everyone & type something up before someone cries... ;-) Tomorrow is our 4-month checkup!!! I can't even believe it. Time sure is flying by! I posted a few pics of Ricky & Ava. They are doing so well.

Avatar f tn but i keep thinking i will have a stroke and die. I was born at 24 weeks premature...had couple issues as a infant/kid but as far as i know im perfectly healthy, which i consider myself very lucky since most preemies end up with alot of health issues. I worry that my blood is altered because i had transfusions as infant so my blood will have a clotting disorder and i do not know yet..until i get pregnant then that clot will go to my brain and i will have stroke and die.
Avatar n tn My ob has told me getting pregnant is not a good idea considering my history I would be at high risk for another stroke due to increased blood volume during pregnancy which increases risk for stroke and increased intracranial pressure which can cause repeat VAD. She sent me to see a high risk perinatologist who said I can get pregnant but would need to be on blood thinners (lovenox) the entire pregnancy and would need a c section vs vaginal delivery to reduce risk of resection.
Avatar n tn RBC count measures the number of red blood cells in a volume of blood and usually ranges from 4.2 to 5.9 million cells per cmm. RBC decreases with anemia; increased when too many are made and with fluid loss due to diarrhea, dehydration, burns. Hgb measures the amount of hemoglobin molecule in a volume of blood and usually measures 12 to 16grams per deciliter (one-hundredth of a liter) for women. Hgb mirrors RBC results.
Avatar f tn The median response duration was 10.25 months More recently, in Journal of Clinical Oncology 2008 Jan 1;volume 26(1) pages :76-82 a study looked at women with recurrent ovarian cancer: Treatment consisted of bevacizumab (avastin) 10 mg/kg intravenously every 2 weeks and oral cyclophosphamide 50 mg/d. RESULTS: Seventy patients were enrolled. A partial response was achieved in 17 patients (24%). Median time to progression was 7.2 months, Median survival was 16.
1295419 tn?1276826472 I had congestive heart failure caused by pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure) after I gave birth. It is rare, but does happen and most women make a full recovery shortly after with no other complications (other than risks of future pregnancies.) I just wanted to see if someone could help me understand something....Are there only 2 ways in which you can have heart failure, systolic & diastolic? The reason I ask is because I know that I did not have systolic, my EF has been fine.
5856747 tn?1403352282 The older one becomes the more likely one is to have hypertension. Men and women are affected in equal proportion. High blood pressure, along with obesity, diabetes and cigarette smoking, is a risk factor for stroke, coronary artery disease, heart failure and kidney failure. Therefore, if you are diagnosed as having high blood pressure, it is important that you find a treatment that suits you and that works in keeping your BP in check. What are the symptoms of raised blood pressure?
Avatar f tn You don't have that problem, and mild regurgitation (back flow of blood into the upper atrium rather than pumped into circulation) shouldn't be a cause, but too much blood volume in the heart can be a cause...the underlying cause is increased heart stiffness and the pumping chamber loses its contractility and more blood comes from the lungs than is pumped out and that puts intra- chamber pressures causing an enlargement of the atrium..
Avatar n tn If she's having mini strokes (TEAs) she will be dizzy no matter whether she's standing or sitting, the dizziness doesn't go away. She could be dehydrated and have low blood volume. In that case, she'd be fine sitting down but black out standing up. Best wishes. It's so hard to worry about parents.
Avatar f tn The transvaginal ultrasound magnafied my hip pain by 20 times but only when she was pointed at right ovary. I would say it was a 9 out of 10, with 10 being natural childbirth. As far as other history goes, when I was in my teens and early 20's I would get very bad periods and cramping that was unbearable. Sometimes I would lay on the floor in a ball crying from the pain. I also had times where i would be in so much pain from sex that I would throw up.
Avatar f tn Is it likely that the atrial fibrillation will come back again or can that really be attributed to the postpartum state? 3. Have you ever heard of women experiencing atrial fibrillation in the postpartum period? 4. I was started on a beta blocker to control the afib and haven't felt it since. Does the beta blocker keep it from happening or does it simply keep the heart rate down if it does happen? 5.
3197167 tn?1348972206 Italian and British researchers recruited young men and women, half of whom were trained musicians. The participants slipped on head phones and listened to six styles of music, including rap and classical pieces, with random two-minute pauses. As the participants kicked back and listened, the researchers monitored their breathing, heart rates and blood pressure. The participants had faster heart and breathing rates when they listened to lively music.
Avatar n tn It's a while since I read the papers but if I remember correctly the authors suggest that the arrhythmogenic effect of pregnancy is due to hormones (they don't specify which ones), increased sympathetic tone, haemodynamic strain and the increased stroke volume of the heart (required to pump all the extra blood around). There are two papers in the medical literature I have read.
Avatar dr m tn And as your airway becomes narrower, the more trouble you'll have breathing while sleeping, and this in turn will make you wake up more and obstruct more.
1148619 tn?1332014584 It does this by increasing not only the number of beats per minute (the heart rate) but also the volume of blood pumped with each stroke (the stroke volume). Mathematically, the cardiac output can be calculated by multiplying the heart rate times the stroke volume. In anemia, the cardiac output increases, and that allows more hemoglobin to be exposed to the peripheral tissues, making up for the decreased hemoglobin concentration.
19592380 tn?1480610212 Last but not least regarding the uterus, it is key to sexual function for many women. Even many women who do / did not have uterine orgasms report a loss of desire and ability to orgasm and enjoy sex after hysterectomy even if their ovaries continue to function. Since the vagina is shortened, there is a risk that it will be shortened too much which can cause a problem with penetration and result in painful sex which you are likely trying to "fix.
Avatar f tn Martha Payne and her co-investigators from Duke and the University of North Carolina examined magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans from 232 men and women (79 men, 153 women) between the ages of 60 and 86 (average age 71).
Avatar n tn Hi all, I had a stroke when I was 21 years old, It was a small stroke and due to my age and stamina only took me 4 months to recover, since then I have been on no medication. I am now 30 years old and now looking back have begun to realise that the problems I am experiencing could be due to TIA's and side effects of the stroke. I am very "up and down", have (which is the opposite to some) very bad hearing.
Avatar f tn Mom has fibro and other issues, dad passed from heart attack, aunt died from cancer, cousin has endo, uncle died from a stroke, diabetes in others, mental disorders and so on and so on. And I was born with hip displasia and suffer from immune issues from birth. Also a slight chance I could get cancer due to issues. I have no doubt some sickness would be passed on. As well as a possible miscarriage that I could mentally not handle.
Avatar n tn Myofascial release therapy is also beneficial for many women both in early stages of POP as well as women post surgery who still have some restrictions to address. Kegels are always beneficial to all women but they have to be done properly. Here's a link to an article I posted on our health pages. http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/Womens-Health/KEGELS-AND-KEGEL-BREATHING/show/1133?cid=591 There is a possiblity of course that the incontinence is not related to POP but it almost always is.
967168 tn?1477588089 The fact that your blood pressure increases from 130/70 (pulse pressure 60) to 150/90 (pulse pressure still 60) during exercise is a sign that your heart probably doesn't increase the stroke volume properly. The fact that you fainted during the tilt test can be a similar signal (but I'm possibly on thin ice here). My blood pressure went from 120/80 (pulse pressure 40) to 210/80 (pulse pressure 130) or so during stress test, with a heart rate of 205.
Avatar f tn You could have had a small stroke like what's called a TMI-that is serious. You could have a brain tumor. You could have some form of other mental or physical disorder that may be relatively minor OR not. The thing is: with that many symptoms (which are not 'normal' as you describe them) you should see a doctor as soon as you can!! Borrow the money or see about a payment plan if you have to. If you are low income and have younger children, maybe you are eligible for Medicaid.
Avatar n tn ejection fraction 68% shortening 39% left ventrical mass 190 grams with a stroke volume 98ml lv diastolic volume 144ml lv systolic volume 46ml lv 5.4cm (enlarged) lv wall thickness 1.0cm left atrium 3.8cm estimated pulmonary artery pressure slightly elevated mild aortic insufficiency mild to moderate tricuspid regurgitation right ventrical slightly enlarged but no value given Can you please explain these findings to me and how serious are they?
Avatar m tn ) When the stroke volume is this high, a little blood vessel constriction can cause higher increase in blood pressure than otherwise. Alcohol in the amount you mention shouldn't increase your blood pressure. Please be aware that blood pressure can greatly increase even with stress you aren't aware of! My blood pressure is (at rest, in bed) 110/60. After dinner it's often 125/70. At the doctors office it's 140/80 and at the cardiologist it's 150/90. Before connecting to EKG it's 160/110.
572651 tn?1531002957 Primary-progressive is a type of MS that is described by slowly worsening neurologic function from the beginning, with no distinct pattern of relapses (temporary worsening of symptoms) or remissions (improvement of symptoms). The speed at which symptoms get worse may vary over time. People may have some periods where symptoms stay the same and may have temporary minor improvements. About 10% of people who have MS will have primary-progressive MS.
Avatar n tn The heart is able to achieve this by increasing its rate ( the heart rate increases until the 32nd week ), and increasing its squeeze ( called stroke volume ). This increased work on the heart is further compounded by labor which induces a further 12% increase in the Cardiac output in the first stage of labor and ultimately increases up to 34% above the pregnancy baseline are achieved by the end of labor.
