Common Questions and Answers about Symptoms of a mild stroke risk

stroke

Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.
Avatar m tn Is there an increased risk of getting a stroke for patients who suffered asphyxiation at birth (which was severe enough to cause mild Cerebral Palsy)?
Avatar n tn s important that you know the possible symptoms of a stroke after her having one 2 years ago. Those having had an eschemic stroke have a 25% chance of having another one within the next 5 years. The longer you wait, the more risk you put your mother in. If she did have a stroke then she may need something like coumadin and also possibly other treatments.
Avatar f tn My son who is 45 just had a mild stroke, 4days ago, now he can't talk properly, he knows what he wants to say, but the words won't come out!,& he can't write, nothing wrong with his hand, otherwise hes ok,he has headache but the doc told hm, with the medication he only had his right hand tingles & his mouth,, 2years ago he had meningites, he came out ok, nothing damage, Do you think it got something to do with the meningites he had???
Avatar n tn The chance of having a stroke approximately doubles for each decade of life after age 55, heredity, race, gender, history of previous TIA or stroke, hypertension, diabetes, smoking, poor physical activity, poor diet, hyperlipidemia etc. I would suggest that you visit a urologist and rule out all the risk factors listed above and take appropriate treatment. Best.
Avatar m tn Aspirin is recommended when there is a risk for blood clots. You have listed mild valve leakage, and that would not be a risk for blood clots. There is a risk for clots when there are heart rhythm disorders, for instance, very fast contractions of heart wallsthat don't progress the blood flow normally and the blood could pool and clot.
Avatar m tn in hospital he did a nuero exam came through with good results remembers all families first names and neices and girlfreinds all objects shown to him were correct .he has a slight to mild slur a touch of droopiness over left eye with a paralysis to his left arm.on a good note he knows where he is. also that boston won 1 nothing and is going to the stanley cup .
Avatar m tn Were you drinking, eating or doing some activity that you normally do not do? Any medical history? Taking any medications? It is difficult to say what exactly you experienced; you should have went to the ER that night. Lastly, I would follow up with your PCP/Family Physician and request an MRI of your brain/head WITH contrast asap.
Avatar n tn It wasn't Parkinson's disease. I had told someone here at work via an email but that note has since been deleted.
1133274 tn?1260361928 What could possibly happen to someone who just had a mild stroke with a little blood clotting on the right side of the brain? I´m a mother of two, seperated for a couple of years now. I just suffered from a mild stroke last week. I undergone all the test right after i reached the ER. I had CT scanning.... but they sent me to MR scanning because they can´t really see if i had a blood clotting. I regained the feeling on my left side after 5 hours in the hospital...
Avatar m tn Yes, my answer would have been: your risk factor is 100% that you are going to die. When it comes to the "when?", it gets a little fuzzy - my guess is, you'll live another 30 years.
4112216 tn?1428402133 It is good that the test results were fine. To prevent any recurrence of stroke, it is important to identify her stroke risk factors, regular follow-up with her attending physician and adopting a healthy lifestyle which includes controlling high blood pressure, controlling diabetes, maintaining a healthy weight, healthy diet, exercising regularly, and intake of preventive medications prescribed.
Avatar n tn I do not know your stroke risk factors, but your symptoms are atypical for stroke as it does not fit a typical distribution, however it does not necessarily mean you didn't have a stroke. If the stroke is very small, it may not show up on a CT scan. In these cases, an MRI is usually better. The episode of Left facial numbness is the most worrisome of the episodes.
Avatar f tn My mother-in-law had her gallbladder removed about 1 month ago. She is experiencing severe migraines, along with severe nausea, and the left side of her face has become numb, and droopy. The first thing we thought was a mild stroke, she was admitted into the hospital, after MRI'S, Cat-scans, countless bloodwork, and ultrasounds, stroke was ruled out. Now, her dx is vascular migraines.
Avatar f tn I am 62-years old, a nonsmoker or drinker. I do take Lamictal/Klonopin for bipolar 2. My mother died of a stroke at age 69 (smoker). My maternal grandmother also had a stroke. I am very concerned.
Avatar f tn If you are at risk of a stroke, they will take that seriously. Do you have preeclampsia? High blood pressure? PLEASE talk to your doctor. They often take babies very early for this or at least monitor you very carefully for when delivery is essential for YOUR health. What does your doctor say? My doctor will terminate when it is in the best interest but it is unique that you are 6 months along. Are you high risk? If you just wish to terminate on your own, that is different.
Avatar m tn when you have a fib the blood in the atrium is not being pumped afficiently so it pools forming clots that can then pass through the body but it has a long journey before it reaches the brain, i would of thought people would be more at risk of heart attack that a a stroke, so i understand what you're saying, your doctor should give you something to prevent a blood clot such as blood thinners like warfarin, have you been given these meds?
730414 tn?1403952873 It will also depend on how severe the hole is whether they will close it. Mine would "flap" one very wide even while I was under sedation. I also have a blood clotting disorder that makes my blood clot rapidly. Ask them to check you for protein defienceies and other clotting problems. That will also help to determine whether they close it. I would be persistent or go to a cardio surgeon on your own, especially one that deals with PFO. Not all of them do.
