Avatar f tn Essential thrombocytosis preents with an increased platelet count, megakaryocytic hyperplasia, and a hemorrhagic or thrombotic tendency. Symptoms and signs may include weakness, headaches, paresthesias, bleeding, splenomegaly, and erythromelalgia with digital ischemia. The treatment is controversial but may include aspirin. Life expectancy is near normal. Although symptoms are common, the course of the disease is often benign.
350555 tn?1196587877 Well, I feel like I have symptoms of a stroke. Today my left side of my face and my left hand and fingers feel like they are tingling. More like pins and needles. I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....

Avatar f tn With the headache or the clinical symptoms presented, it is difficult to say whether it is a thrombotic or a hemorrhagic stroke. Stroke can be ischemic or hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke occurs as a result of blockage to an artery. Hemorrhagic strokes are due to bleeding and more common in patients on blood thinners. Yes it is possible to detect if the stroke is hemorrhagic or ischemic, with an MRI. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Your mother suffered from ischemic stroke of which the greatest danger is posed by embolic strokes followed by thrombotic and lacunar strokes. On the other hand, the survivors of hemorrhagic have a greater chance of recovering function than those suffering from ischemic stroke. Most of the patients, nearly about three quarters recover functional independence after a stroke. She would require intensive physical therapy and conscious attempt to activity.
Avatar n tn I'm 43yr old and had a small stroke recently. I'm a fit non smoker w/ no risk factors except a newly diagonosed lipoprotein-a of 85 (this level was taken after 6wk of asprin tx). I've had and extensive work up to rule out other causes. My cardiac echo w/ bubble study and ct angiogram from chest to brain was normal. I have a good cholesterol profile and no htn. My thrombophilia work up was basically normal.

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.
Avatar f tn no symptoms except heavy boobs
Avatar n tn I can move but its hard..But its heavy and painfully tingley. and feels weak..Normal neuro exam and no swallow problems.

1013028 tn?1250923267 However, in persons with the lupus anticoagulant, the risk of recurrence of both arterial and venous thrombotic episodes is very high. 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.

Avatar f tn All premenstrual signs have gone - however periods have NOT come
Avatar f tn The WHI study highlights an increased risk of thrombotic disease associated with this form of hormone replacement therapy(HRT)...ie stroke. The average age of menopause is 51 in which you have surpassed. It is recommended in general that a patient utilize the lowest dose of HRT for the shortest period of time. The good news for you is that starting HRT within 5yrs of becoming estrogen deficient is associated with less risk.
