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 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.
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 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 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.
Avatar n tn Semi-conscious states are observed in a stroke following a cardiac failure. And the additional effect of the sedatives is also there. It takes about 7 days for the medicines to get cleared from the body completely. Watch for her improvement and inform the doctor as soon as any worsening in consciousness is observed. I hope for her speedy recovery.

Avatar n tn TIA by definition should not have any residual effects beyond 24 hours. Your symptoms could or could not be related to stroke etiology and could represent peripheral neurological/ muscular issues. I would suggest considering an initial evaluation by a primary care physician and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Avatar f tn A year ago, he had some bleeding in the gangli area (motor control) in the right hemisphere of the brain and this resulted in diminished control of the left hand and left foot. More recently he has been having difficulty with swallowing (medication) or when siezed with a coughing fit, he cannot control his respiration and tends to gulp air. What can I do to help? Am I looking at a progression of ALS which the doctors here in Italy do not recognize?
Avatar n tn Physical therapy and speech therapy ASAP.
Avatar n tn My eyes seem very sensitive to light. I am concerned because a few years ago I had a mild stroke in the same eye with 25% damage to the retina. Could this be a sign of another stroke?

Avatar n tn which include older age, high blood pressure, male sex, high cholesterol, family history, and history of heart disease. In general, the fewer of risk factors one has, the less likely a stroke will hit that person. Keep in mind, though, this applies only when we deal with common strokes. Young people can also have stroke but the causes and risk factors would be quite differernt.
Avatar n tn My 86 year old mother just came out of the hospital on Friday after being in for ten days due to a "mini-stroke" (TIA). It was the fifth one she has had since suffering a major stroke in 2007. Tonight she started bleeding; not heavy but enough to saturate her Depends underwear. I have noticed some very light spotting in the past, but only about once a month. The cause of this is puzzling me. I guess the doctor needs to be seen. Any advice?
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.
