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 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 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 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 n tn The most obvious and severe symptom of deficiency of magnesium in pregnancy is the HUGE problem of preeclampsia or eclampsia- also known as 'Toxemia of Pregnancy'. About 7% of pregnant women end up diagnosed with eclampsia or preeclampsia. The symptoms of swelling in the legs, fatigue and sometimes dangerously high blood pressure can range from a mild annoyance to a deadly problem that forces you to have an emergency induced labor, a ruptured placenta or even a stroke!
Avatar m tn Women have different, more subtle symptoms of heart disease than men. Mild chest discomfort or none at all is possible along with back pain, fatigue and nausea. Because you have the number one risk factor, being a smoker, you need to get checked out. Call a local hospital and ask about your situation, they may have a program for you, but don't wait until it's too late.
Avatar f tn However, a few days after first sleeping together, I got a sore throat and became very fatigued. This has continued four days later. I have simple cold symptoms-a very mild basic cold with mild sore throat, tiredness, light headedness. No headache or fever or Stomach issues. I got my period about a week ago and as it's tapering off, I'm getting more discharge than usual-though still not a lot (very light pink). The discharge is causing itchiness.
1215331 tn?1278590953 Thanks for the advice, I saw my Dr. on Wednesday and told him about my Episode, he really didn't seem very concerned. He is sending me to an Endocrinologist, finally. It isn't related to the strange episode. It is because I have had some severe hypothyroid type of symptoms and but the tests are normal. I guess maybe he thinks the episode is somehow related to that. Oh well, If it happens again I will go to the ER.

Avatar n tn What is the preferred optimal treatment for a 65 year old recovered stroke patient (only mild aphasia) diagnosed with Patent formanen ovale? Is it the use of the closure device or medication with blood thinners?
464054 tn?1223823033 How is your sister –in-law? Stroke happens when the blood flow to the brain stops. The usual symptoms of stroke are: numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg (especially on one side of the body), confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech, trouble seeing in one or both eyes, trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, or severe headache with no known cause. Some of these were seen with your sister-in-law.
Avatar f tn Hey everyone, about three months ago I got my paragard IUD out after having it in for six years. That very night I went home and felt symptoms of an oncoming UTI, a really slight burning (not when I pee, just a burning "down there") and the frequent urge to urinate. Well, it never turned into an actual UTI; it was just those faint symptoms, which confused me. I thought maybe they were a weird side effect of Paragard removal and ignored them for a few weeks.
1292261 tn?1272227117 Generally, shoulder and arm numbness originates from the neck problems due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because the nerves that supply the back of the head start in the upper cervical spine. Mostly, these symptoms aggravate after turning head and typically occur in patients with previous neck injuries and in patients with marked arthritis of the upper cervical spine.
Avatar f tn Cerebelllar ataxia is one type of ataxia occurring due to a problem in the cerebellum, one of the structures in the brain involved in coordination (among other things). There are several causes of cerebellar ataxia and whether or not the ataxia can be treated depends on the cause. Below, a few types of ataxias will be discussed but this list is by no means comprehensive.
1626968 tn?1299459984 s anxiety and given meds for that but still I have what seems to me to be mild symptoms of a heart attack and stroke. Should there be any other test I should take to rule out something that could result in something more serious like death?
Avatar n tn I hope the hospital scanned his head to see if he did indeed have a stroke, and if they have not, by golly they need to! Also, I am wondering if he was in some kind of accident before this happened to him, like even while working on the car, he may have wrenched his back. Sometimes if you hurt the thoracic spine, it'll make the chest hurt, and if he hurt his whole spine, it'll cause the tingling in his extremities and face.
Avatar n tn You need not worry on account of stroke or brain tumor as they do not seem likely as of now, although a clinical exam will not hurt.

Avatar f tn No one could figure out what it was until one morning she was in the shower and her left side went complete numb and when we rushed her to the er they told us she had a mild stroke.
