Avatar n tn Hi Sorry to hear of your husband's episode :( If indeed he has had a TIA (mini stroke), treat it is a warning. Find out the cause & do everything you can to address that cause. This is his chance yo stop the big one happpening.
Avatar n tn I also felt weak suddenly while walking and lost my balance and fell down, but recovered myself and started walking again. I have been wondering whether these are stroke warning signs? Most sites mention numbness in arm, not fingers. I measured my Blood pressure, it is around 130-94mm. I am on hypertension medication and last month had ECG and echo cardiogram and blood tests which were pretty normal. Should I go and meet my physician? I am currently travelling, Hence worried.
Avatar m tn Getting a stroke is one of the scariest things that would happen to a person because it can cause a lot of bad things to happen to them that anyone would not like. In the US alone there are about 700,000+ US citizens who have a stroke and that is a scary number. Do you know why a person gets a stroke? That is because your brain did not get blood to it and it will get damaged as a result hence the stroke.
Avatar n tn The doctor said hypertension was the cause. There seemed to be no warning signs except on the day it happened. He had a terrible headache and went downhill from there. He was taking all his medication--plavix, 325 mg of asprin, blood pressure medicine, etc. and was doing fine. He did have very bad back pain but finally got relief and was back to himself for a month and a half. This stroke came on so suddenly....did I miss something? His pressure was under control and he was feeling good.

Low and behold I was going to go wee and obviously would have wiped all the evidence away. So I checked and wow THERE WAS LOADS! of Yellowish sticky CM. It doesnt smell offensive at all. I read it's a hormonal change (but serious what does that mean haha really????) I hope it's good signs Also what I thought was thrush seems to just have been irritation.
Avatar f tn in the sense of symptoms of a stroke and stroke warning as signs of a pathology that could lead eventually to a stroke. the only way that could indicate higher risk of stroke is that it was caused by a vascular problem, but you should have a bit more going on I guess. it also depends on your age. maybe it was caused by sudden sun exposure. why are you worried about having a stroke, do you have other symptoms? is there someone in your family who's had a stroke?
Avatar m tn F: face dropping A. arm weakness S. speech difficulty T. Time to call 911 That's an easy way to remember when to get help. Time is of the essence with stroke. Please report back if you were able to see a doctor. Be well.
Avatar n tn htm The Whisperings of Ovarian Cancer by Laura Dolson A year after his wife, Gilda Radner, died of ovarian cancer, Gene Wilder appeared on TV to alert women about the early warning signs of the disease. Later, he received a letter from a woman who had been watching. She wrote, "as you described Gilda's symptoms, I felt a chill wash through my body, and I knew that I, too, had ovarian cancer".
Avatar n tn (from - but also applies to pets) Also called TIAs, transient ischemic attacks are minor or warning strokes. In a TIA, conditions indicative of an ischemic stroke are present and the typical stroke warning signs develop. However, the obstruction (blood clot) occurs for a short time and tends to resolve itself through normal mechanisms. Even though the symptoms disappear after a short time, TIAs are strong indicators of a possible major stroke.

Avatar n tn you should be seen in an Emergency room - you may be having TIAs which are warning signs of stroke -- if you're at risk for stroke, they can find out why and possibly stop it before it happens.
Avatar n tn If after a few months of this your cholesterol were still high, I would start you on medication for your cholesterol. There are no specific warning signs of a high cholesterol, unless you develop coronary or carotid artery disease. I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back.
