Common Questions and Answers about Thrombotic stroke signs and symptoms


18089930 tn?1463091690 A black male in his early fifties suffers a thrombotic stroke. He has high cholesterol and blood pressure but is thin with no diabetes. When he suffers his stroke he loses function on one side of his body and becomes disoriented. He is taken to the ER right away. How long is he likely to be in the hospital? What is the plausibility for either lasting effects or a complete recovery?
Avatar f tn based on my research sometimes certain symptoms of chiari can manifest at the same time. These symptoms can confused doctors and make them think you had a stroke. I have recently experienced this myself, until the ER doctor talked to my neurosurgeon.

Avatar f tn She said that the day she had a stroke, she was admitted in the ICU and had a CVD bleed. What does that mean? Thanks you. And i was also wondering if what type of stroke she had because i don't have her records. She said she spent 2 days in the ICU, 1 month at the hospita, has left side paralysis and no peripheral vision on the left eye. Now she still has no peripheral vision on the left eye and still has weakness on the left side of her body. Thank you for your help.
Avatar f tn This facial neurological defict is because of the brain stroke. stroke can be thrombotic, embolic, hemorrhagic, hypoperfusion related etc and can affect one of the 3 central nervous system pathways like spinothalamic tract, corticospinal tract and dorsal column, symptoms include hemiplegia and muscle weakness of face, numbness, reduction in sensory and vibration sensation. Usually unilateral, opposite side of the brain part affected.
Avatar f tn Tissue plasminogen activator (TPA), needs to be given within 4.5 hours after stroke symptoms, this restores the blood supply to the affected part. After suffering a stroke, many people experience post-stroke spasticity, muscle tightness that impairs mobility. Botox injections can help with this tightness. Also, Intrathecal baclofen therapy is known to help with the tightness. It involves the surgical implantation of a pump.

Some patients may need to be on long-term oral anticoagulation. Some may need to be on anticoagulation for the whole life. Plavix, similar to Aspirin, is an antiplatelet drug and is effective in treating arterial clots (in cases of stroke, heart attack, peripheral arterial disease). Plavix stops platelets aggregation or prevents them from sticking together.
406181 tn?1202338673 In the past year my father has been diagnosed with having blood clots in one of his legs from an unknown cause and is being treated with medication and his father died from a stroke when he was in his late twenties. A stroke is something that has been weighing heavy on my mind, but keeps being dismissed by my doctors. They keep saying that at 26 I am too young and that I am either having seizures or migraines.
Avatar n tn I was sent to the hospital for stroke symptoms and kept overnight for testing. I was checked for MS and stoke, but all was clear. They told me that I was having Atypical migraines or "silent migraines" that can cause stroke like symptoms without the head pain. I have been to 2 neuro's and have been told the same thing. I am trying to change my diet and I am going to see a hematologist to get my anemia under control.
Avatar m tn Its likely from the CT scan that your fathers symptoms are due to the subacute infarct. Stroke can be ischemic or hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke occurs as a result of blockage to an artery. For this therapy with clot dissolving drugs (thrombolytics), should be initiated early. Aspirin, an anti-thrombotic drug, is given immediately after an ischemic stroke to reduce the likelihood of having another stroke. Tissue plasminogen activator (TPA), needs to be given within 4.
Avatar n tn This may not be very easy to do.The mechanism that causes a migraine and its symptoms in a complex migraine vary from that of a real stroke.Migraines are due to spasms of the blood vesesl within the brain while cerebrovascular disease is due to a blockage of the vessel or a bleed. I can not really say if those with complex migraines have increased risk for future stroke than those persons who don't have it.
Avatar m tn The MRI showed no signs of a stroke and no damage to the brain. The nuerologist simply said he had symptoms of a stroke but the MRI didn't conclusively show anything. He simply said they would treat it as a stroke because he didn;t have any answers as to what was really going on. Lather that night, my dad stated that the pins and needles were getting worse in his hand and feet as well as up his right arm.
1211508 tn?1343079605 5 hours later after the first signs of it. SO it is very important to be aware of the signs of stroke and go to the ER immediately. They say to call an ambulance. 75% of people are not aware of stroke symptoms, so that could account for far more disability than would be otherwise. And be aware of those around you whose judgment can be impaired. I as well a friend of mine thought nothing was wrong even though we couldn't talk and were initially paralyzed.
Avatar f tn Celebrex may cause an increased risk of serious cardiovascular thrombotic events, myocardial infarction, and stroke, which can be fatal. All nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may have a similar risk. This risk may increase with duration of use. It is my opinion that each of us have to research the medications we take and make our own decisions based on that research and our comfort levels.
1406388 tn?1281216718 (1) Perform an evaluation. This involves patient history, nature of injury, blood pressure, signs and symptoms, evidence of LOC (Loss of consciousness) and blood work (to determine clotting status). (2) A CT or an MRA is performed ASAP. The size and nature of the bleed is established.
Avatar n tn I've had an intermittent tingling in my ear and on my face for several days. It lasts 20-30 seconds though it sometimes turns to mild pain and also sometimes includes my jaw and cheekbone. It's mostly on the right side of my face, though I've felt some on the left side as well. I've seen two doctors who couldn't identify it. I have no other symptoms. No headache, nausea, muscle weakness, bels palsy or any of the other signs of stroke. I'm 38 and otherwise healthy.
Avatar n tn There are two peaks of developing a stroke infancy and old age. It is a good sign that your baby is not exhibiting any symptoms of stroke. Infant brains are very plastic and learn to compensate for the loss fairly easily. However you need to watch your child closely for any symptoms like using one side of the body or one limb more than the other.
Avatar n tn His doctor has given him an MRI, and he has no sign of stroke or tumor. Are these typical symptoms or a person that attempts to quit after excessive use for a long period of time? Also, his tolerance level changed, which made him stop in the first place, along with family intervention.
Avatar f tn I have been having major issues with my blood pressure and heart for well over a year. Not kidding when I say well over stroke categories (180/110). It all started when I was working during a heat wave. Immediately I felt palpitations, short of breath, sweating perfusely, nauseus etc. and I really was doing any major "work" yet. Just walking. (I am a photographer so I do run, walk, stand, kneel, climb etc that's not uncommon).
Avatar m tn my 85 year old mother had a stroke a few days ago and on the 4th day she was asked to show her finger and she did she also squeeze my sisters finger and she nodded to a question she had a mild to big stroke affecting her left hand is this a good sign for recovery ?
Avatar m tn Hello, my father -aged 62- is suffering from dizziness since that morning and he cannot get off the bed. His blood pressure is higher than the usual and it's getting higher. My mother is afraid that these are signs of a stroke and maybe we'll need to take him to hospital. What else could cause these symptoms?
Avatar n tn There would not be any evidence of stroke in her bloodwork. Who told you that? You look at the signs and symptoms. Not the darned bloodwork and MRI. I would have had your internists licence...well I'll stop...let's just say he was working abiove his pay grade and should have referred you to a stroke center instantly. Who told you "there is no evidence of stroke"? Obviously he recieved medical training in lower Ghana, and served in internship in Nigeria.
Avatar f tn in the sense of symptoms of a stroke and stroke warning as signs of a pathology that could lead eventually to a stroke. the only way that could indicate higher risk of stroke is that it was caused by a vascular problem, but you should have a bit more going on I guess. it also depends on your age. maybe it was caused by sudden sun exposure. why are you worried about having a stroke, do you have other symptoms? is there someone in your family who's had a stroke?
