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.
755322 tn?1330269114 I feel my brain is sharper in that I can concentrate for longer periods of time than before. My over all fatigue is better but not as good as just after the procedure. I have slipped back a bit over the year. Walking is worse. I am not sure clearing internal jugular blockages and blockages in the Azygos vein has much to do with walking performance. It helped in the beginning a bit, but that could have been a placebo effect. My walking has deteriorated pretty badly.
Avatar n tn if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.
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?

1344197 tn?1392819171 A number of studies have suggested that hysterectomy with the removal of ovaries prior to age 50 may increase the risk for heart attack and stroke. Given the fact that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women, and hysterectomy is such a common surgery, further investigation was warranted. A recent European study published in the European Heart Journal has helped bring this issue to the forefront. This large study looked at 800,000 women under the age of 50.

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 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.
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 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.
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.
