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 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 With the recent introduction of tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) drugs, how has the standard of care changed for the E.R. physician in his/her treatment of a patient with symptoms of stroke (e.g. dizziness, vomiting, blurred vision, hypertension, lethargy and loss of awareness), but whose CT Scan is negative and desires to leave the E.R.? What is the standard of care both pre- and post-t-PA?
Avatar m tn mild aortic insufficiency mild tricuspid insufficiency ivc appears normal the PA pressure isnormal by Doppler mild pulmonary insufficiency what does all of this mean? am i at risk of an immediate heart attack or stroke?
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 n tn I have been on that for two months and the frequency has increased to 2-3 a week with the stroke symptoms increasing in severity - loss of speech, noted weakness in the left side, vision problems in the left eye. No MRI has been done since the neurologist felt it unlikely that it would reveal anything. He says they are complicated migraines, which explains the stroke-like symptoms and we simply need to find the right medication to decrease their frequency.
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 m tn my hubby had a small blood vessel to break above his left ear in between his skull and brain not inside the brain. in his recovery he is getting where at times he is frustrated and hateul for me his caregiver. when he gets visitors comes he is nice and speaks mostly well although he mostly speaks well all the time but has a little problem with memory yet. it has been two weeks and is better then he was. no surgery and walked out of the hospital.
Avatar n tn My mom is 58 she suffered a heart attck & she had water filled in her lungs so she was put on a ventilator with 4 1\2 days of complete sedation. then they wanted to wein her of the vent so they stopped sedation but today more then 60hrs are over but she is still semi consious so they did a CT scan & it showed as a mild stroke.
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 I am more concerned about the possible risk of a recurrent stroke more than cognitive symptoms that you experience (those are likely to improve). Depending upon the the exact vascular pathology you have, different treatments may be appropriate to significantly reduce the risk of a recurrent stroke. It is not too late to get a second comprehensive opinion. I strongly recommend that you see Dr. Anthony Furlan, Dr. Cathy Sila, or Dr. Judith Hinchey at the Cleveland Clinic.
Avatar n tn Physical therapy and speech therapy ASAP.
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 n tn Excluding a new stroke, do symptoms several months after a stroke get worse than symptoms at the time of the stroke. The symptoms after the stroke should get better or stay the same but not get worse, right? New scans show resolution, but symptoms persist.
Avatar m tn my father suffered a mild stroke at age 85 we beleive he was hit by the stroke between 5 am and 7am was in hospital by between 730 am and 8am .this is a healthy man who does have a arythmia problem and stopped his meds which was metropolol. 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 .
Avatar n tn You should consult your doctor about it, also you have to be alert as a TIA may increase the risk of stroke and be cautious about neurological symptoms like weakness of muscles.
