Symptoms of mild stroke risk

Common Questions and Answers about Symptoms of mild stroke risk


Avatar n tn Do these syptomns sound like she whould have a CAT to prove or disprove any possibilty of a Mild Stroke due to heavy Wine and Smoking? Since she is hospitalized presently recovering form her broken hip, should they also test for a stroke?
Avatar f tn If there is concern for depression, treatment of it can improve many symptoms. Seizures or abnormal EEGs after stroke is common. Treatment of the seizures (or severely abnormal EEG patterns) with antiepileptics such as lamictal should help improve some of your symptoms with the thinking. If the neuropsychological evaluation showed specific problems, cognitive rehabilitation to help you with those specific areas may benefit you.
Avatar n tn Then they could have given him blood thinners to help him break down the clot with no risk of it being a bleed in his brain. They didn't know what kind of stroke he had for more than 24 hours and then he had had a major stroke. I asked for him to be transferred to a hospital with and MRI but they said they couldn't and that he was getting the same treatment that they would be giving him at Western or Sunny Brook.
Avatar n tn regardless of his risk, let's say high risk (unprotected sex during Dec2006) 2 weeks after symptoms, or 3 weeks, gernerlly people will have enough antibody , right? Thanks.
1896811 tn?1323981959 We differ a bit in regards to what brough us to the doctor - I had stroke like symptoms. After initial dx I went for a 2nd opinion to make me feel more confident. My doc suggested it, but I already had it lined up I was so sure he was wrong. Maybe that is something that would help put your mind at ease too...Just a thought.
Avatar f tn My dad has recently (within the last week) had a mild stroke. He is only 48 and reasonably healthy so it came has a huge shock. The stroke was a clot to the left side of his brain. His memory has not been affected and his doctors are very impressed with the progress of his recovery in the short time since the stroke. They believe after all of his rehabilitation he should be back to 100% independance. The outlook is good in that respect even though at the moment its all still very saddening.
Avatar n tn I have BAM (Basilar Artery Migraine) with Aura. The aura is stroke like symptoms. I have had 27 full-blown episodes that render me unable to talk, walk, or control limbs on the right side. I have researched this to the hilt. If you will e-mail me at: ***@****, I will share my real experiences.
Avatar n tn There are some types of Herpes viruses, such as vericella or chicken pox, that can induce a vasculitis and lead to stroke, you would have had an outbreak of your Herpes near the time of your stroke and therefore you would have known it. One needs to find out the etiology of the stroke and try to limit the factors inducing the stroke. Pregnancy can induce a hypercoaguable state and therefore this should be fully worked up including the Leiden factor and thrombin gene.
Avatar m tn Patients with delirium have longer hospitalizations and a poorer prognosis, and are at increased risk of developing dementia. The identification of the patients at risk and non-pharmacological preventative interventions are the key measures in the management of delirium. Delirium is defined as a transient, usually reversible, cause of cerebral dysfunction and manifests clinically with a wide range of neuropsychiatric abnormalities.
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.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms are continuous that would rule out stroke as a cause of these symptoms, with the MRI you describe. I can't tell you what your symptoms are from because I can't examine you. MS might give you symptoms that persist but your lesions do not sound like demyelinating lesions nor are they in the usual location. You will have to make a decision about a second opinion concerning the clamp device.
730414 tn?1403956473 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 n tn My 88 year old mother had an angiogram (tube placed through her groin) 10 days ago, due to narrowing of the arteries to the heart. Her GP seems to think this may have caused a mild stroke - is this possible? To me she has no outward stroke symptoms although she cannot remember everything as she did before -- she is nowhere near as 'alert' (doing crosswords etc) and says her head feels like it is full of 'cotton wool'. Is this possible and is there any treatment for this type of stroke?
Avatar n tn Discuss with your physicians the use of anticoagulation therapy and further evaluation. The side effects of anticoagulation therapy has to be weighed against the future risk of stroke incidence. Meanwhile, stay calm and relax.Unnecessary worryimg would not help. Just keep a close follow up with your physician. I hope this helps. Keep us posted regarding your progress.

Not the extreme that I couldn't walk or function, but enough to disturb me greatly.
451975 tn?1372332199 I have had migraines since I was 16 years old I am now 27. Every migraine that I have has stroke like symptoms(loss of sight, numbness of half of body, dizziness, loss of speech, severe headaches for days after, and a foggy feeling in my brain). The first time I had an episode I was taken to the emergency room where the doctors gave me shots to get rid of the nausea, this didn't help at all. They did a CAT scan and found nothing wrong.
Avatar f tn I also remember she touched her vagina for a second but didn't use that hand to stroke my penis. She also took of her top n bra but didn't took off her panties. Now below are my questions and worries. Its been more than 3 weeks now. Immediately after couple of days after my exposure I started have slight sore in my throat. It was on and off during work days. It got worse over the weekend when I again had cold beers and lot of smokes.
Avatar m tn A word of caution though, I do recommend going for a second opinion on the diagnosis but do not stop the blood thinners before you know for sure you are clear otherwise you will put yourself at risk of stroke. But go to your GP and get the thyroid test to be sure because you do seem kind of young for afib but I am not an expert on afib. Hopefully someone with more experience with the condition can jump on with some input. Good luck. I hope you can work it out so you can follow your dreams.
116881 tn?1189759423 Just like the time I had a stroke, I had no warning signs, no symptoms, felt fine. I even went into the ER after the stroke and they sent me home, I looked fine to them. I have to find a way to not worry about dying spontaneously. If it's my time, then I guess it's my time. Until then, I need to let it go and enjoy life again, skips and blips and all.
Avatar f tn The metabolism of aspartame in the human body and the proposed toxicities from its metabolic components have concerned a lot of people and have been the emphasis of many post-marketing surveillance studies. Aspartame is metabolized by digestive enzymes and peptides to three common dietary components: amino acids, aspartic acid, and phenylalanine. Minute amounts of methanol can also be detected.
Avatar n tn I also have a great grandmother with Parkinsons Disease, although, I don't think I have any of those symptoms other than the head tremor which I'm told is usually the last symptom to appear. I realize you can't diagnose without examining me and I realize I have many crazy things going on, but I would love to get your opinion on what this could be. Sorry this is so long. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn 1 year Your excess risk of coronary heart disease has dropped to less than half that of a smoker. 5 to 15 years Your risk of stroke has declined to that of a non-smoker. 10 years Your risk of death from lung cancer has declined by almost half if you were an average smoker (one pack per day). Your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat and esophagus has now decreased. 15 years Your risk of coronary heart disease is now that of a person who has never smoked.
Avatar n tn Let me know, one way or the other! Your symptoms are NOT odd at ALL, and not very depression related. I've heard of all of these frequently from people (I know in person) and in literature on CFS and I've had some of them. I used to grocery shop by going to the car half way through and taking a nap just so my muscle could continue to the end. And boy was I glad for all those unpacked boxes in the aisles that I sat on.
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 The second they think was caused when they lowered his blood pressure it was a Ischemic stroke. The first stroke is the most severe and originated in the Putamen ( a part of the basal ganglia). The second is on the right side and I've been told it controls spatial concepts. He has started to move more today and instead of only having posturing movements he has started to bring his arms up in a more normal response.
Avatar n tn He suspected that I had a mild stroke due to a blood clot which formed because of the birth control pills I was on. I went off the pills and he said the numbness would fade and call him if the frequency of the migraines increased. They increased to 1-2 a week and he put me on Limbitrol.
Avatar n tn Also, when I realized I was not as hard I should be, I started to stroke my covered shaft until it got hard and finally climaxed. My doubt is whether some of her fluids that were on my groin area managed to enter inside the condom from the base of the condom while I was stroking. I didn't have any sores and cuts but still, I started to have itching sensation all over my groin area from next day onwards. I was freaking out..
1056589 tn?1273750702 There definatly seems to be a connection especially with autoimmune disease. For instance family history of Thyriod disease increases the risk of MS..etc.... Mom- Dystolic dysfuntion (heart disease), Porphyria on her side of family.
