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.

1417531 tn?1365597725 Had a phone consult with the doctor last night in regards to a plan of what to do about it... as it turns out, the doc claims FET is still a go for March 14th however, when the beta comes back positive, Lovenox will be prescribed until week 36 at which Heprin would be prescribed. At first I was glad to hear that there's still a point of doing the FET however, now I'm a bit nervous about the meds. THe idea of going on any blood thinner doesn't sit well with me.
676143 tn?1312941771 I'm feeling a lack of symptoms today. I'm not nearly as nauseated, but I do gag a lot and I have the ache in my pelvic area again.

I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system.
Avatar n tn My mother is 87 and has been complaining of numbness inside of her head (is the only way she can describe it) She started having these symptoms ever since she had eye surgery two years ago to have a caterac removed. They gave her a shot in the eye as part of the procedure. She had a mild stroke the first of the year but there was no damage . She has had 3 MRI's this year and nothing showed up other than a sinus infection and the fact that she had a mild stroke.

Avatar f tn The side effects vary depending on what form of pill you're taking. Some have only one kind of hormone, some have multiple. It's best to look up your specific brand (like on google) to see what kind of possible side effects show up. That being said, not everyone experiences side effects and even if someone does usually they're not very bad.
Avatar f tn what happens with significant MVR some blood fails to pumped into circulation with each stroke. To maintain adequate blood flow with a decrease in stroke volume is to increase the heart rate. The math for cardiac output is stroke volume times heart rate for one minute. Frankly, I don't believe you have significant MVR because you should also have the symptoms of shortness of breath with exertion and muscle fatigue.
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
Avatar n tn A mild stroke in January left me with numbness and spasticity on the left side. That condition remained without change until a couple of days ago. All of the muscles on my left side became much more knotted. Instead of discomfort, I now feel severe pain. Additionally, I pulled my left hamstring muscle making what I thought was a routine movement (stepping forward and bending over at the same time.) I can't imagine what is causing my condition to worsen.
Avatar n tn Today I experienced sharp pains in my left hip while standing. Short lived. Blurry vision in left eye....mild. RLS as usual Still taking Gabapentin 300 mg twice daily.
2175879 tn?1338355028 It was determined today by another doctor that I had a mild stroke, not a TIA. That explains atleast for me, why although my symptoms have improved but not gone away like a TIA is expected to. Reading all these questions on TIA sure helped me deal with this, but I think that there are other people that have had strokes and been labled as TIA's because, just like me, the stroke fixed itself, but has left its footprint.
Avatar m tn ) The fatigue has continued, but yesterday I began having mild pain in the left side of my neck and my upper left shoulder area. Today, I became very cold/sweaty and thought I was going to get sick to my stomach. I am only 27, but fear I am having symptoms of a heart attack. I have a long family history of heart disease and don't know if I should call my regular doctor or just head to the ER? Thanks!
Avatar n tn After 1 week in a hospital, 2 weeks as in-patient in an high intensity stroke rehab hospital followed by 8 weeks of out-patient therapy I am doing great physically. Left arm is 99% back - only minor tingle in finger tips when arm is very tired. Left leg is very good, balance is 95%, stamina needs a little more work, walk 1/3 of a mile twice a day. Physically I am very pleased with progress todate and it keeps improving. I do 1 hour of therapy exercises at home each day.
