Common Questions and Answers about Symptoms of 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 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 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 f tn I was admitted to hospital with a suspected stroke as a result of symptoms of numbness down my right side. I am male 54 years old , smoker with high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

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 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 Of course by then I had mostly recouped from my stroke, the cardio. Dr. said I had no symptoms of stroke & that was the qualifying thing to have the repair. So I live with my unrepaierd PFO. Sill experience headache, heart palpitations, flushed face, vision interference. The stroke left me with some nerve twitches. I no longer have insurance. So I don't get medical attention. Am happy to find friends among you.
Avatar f tn I do know what stds oral puts you at risk for, my question was whether or not my symptoms sound like symptoms of an STD. Thank you, though.
Avatar m tn Around the beginning of the year I started getting mild headaches like my neck was out of alignment. Two weeks ago the pain was so bad it woke me out of a deep sleep. I also had severe nausea and dizziness. When these new symptoms didn't go away after an hour or so I went to the ER. In the ER they originally thought it was a stroke but ruled that out. They did a CT scan that showed something abnormal but they weren't sure what it was so they then did a MRI.
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?
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 f tn htm Alcohol can also interfere with the function of blood pressure medication. Elevated blood pressure is a primary risk factor in inducing stroke.
Avatar m tn I'M ROMY, 56 YEARS OLD. IN 2001 I UNDEWENT ANGIOPLASTI, HAD VERTIGO AND MILD STROKE IN 2003, ANOTHER TIA IN DEC. 2005. LESS THAN A YEAR IN OCT. 2006 ANOTHER TIA AND AGAIN IN APRIL THIS YEAR.

Avatar f tn An enlarged LA puts you at higher risk for stroke as not all the blood gets out with each beat and the pooled blood may form a clot that causes a stroke, but this risk is easily modified with aspirin or blood thinners if severe. Again, nothing serious here, just relax and wait for your appointment. Make the cardiologist go over your report item by item and give you the answers to you questions, he owes you that. Good luck!
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 Thanks for the advice. There have been multiple encounters and yes with multiple partners. They have tested negative for other STIs (and I'm clean for everything else), and when I mean multiple I say this because I've never had any severe symptoms and am thus I'm considering my entire sexual history since I first became sexually active. Lesion is slightly raised but generally flat, when I stretch the skin it sits on there is little/no pain and the lesions practically disappear.
Avatar m tn Symptoms or lack of symptoms will never tell you your status. The only way to know your status is by testing.
