My mom recently had a mild stroke. She is recovering and slowly getting movement back in her right side. She is suffering from belching--often hard/deep belches. She s never done this before. We assume it s an effect from the stoke or her new meds (blood thinner and cholesterol). Any insight?
I had a mild stroke last November with no real obvious side effects. I was taking atorvastatin 10mg daily but my Dr took me off 2 months ago because I was having cramps in my feed and hands. I am still having cramps but also in my calves now. I am having pressure in my head and for a couple of days now I am having what feels like vibrations in my left chest on and off. No pain with it though and no shortness of breath. I don t know if some of this is due to anxiety but I never have a day when I feel good. I have had my heart checked and blood work and have an appt for bloodwork on Monday. My Dr doesn t seem to have any real idea of what may be going on. I have an appt with a neurologist in a couple of weeks but I am really worried about what all is going on. I am a 62 year old female, I do not smoke, I weigh about 167 and exercise regularly

My Mom has had several strokes. She is currently away from her home and residing in Florida. She has had headaches and this morning woke up with a nosebleed that lasted 1.5 hours. She does not normally get nosebleeds. She told me she is taking aleve for her headaches. What are some other symptoms she should be watching for that may warrant a visit to the hospital. I am living in Hawaii and am very concerned. I would like to give her some advise but am at a loss on what directives to guide her in during this concerning time. Regretfully, she did not bring her blood pressure cuff with her. Any advise to share? Thank you. Winnie
Hi. My father is the patient. he s 80 yrs old and had a stroke 5 months ago-he was diagnosed with an ischaemic stroke. Comorbidities are: hypertension, diabetes mellitus and prostate cancer. he s currently discharged from the hospital. he s been having very high blood pressures at night like 194/90 and during the day, especially when we sit him down, it falls so low like 90/70 for about a month now. he also started having seizures some weeks ago, about once a week and now, for the past two days, he s been vomitting. his urine is also highly concentrated and sometimes in a day, urine output is less than 100mls. his appetite has also declined and he s lethargic with lots of hiccups. can you please tell me what is happening?

I m a 47 female with a history of anxiety. However, I am a firm believer that my anxiety is a reaction from the pain I expierience and not the other way around. I went to my Cardiologist last December and he performed, Echo, EKG, Blood Test, Ultrasound, and even checked my Carotid Artieries (for stroke)... All negative Today I have been expieriencing the following discomfort: pain in and around the collarbone (both sides), pain in and around both shoulderblades, tightness in front of upper chest, pain under my chin. Any suggestions? I also take an aspirin every morning... is that more harmful than helpful?
My left testicle has been giving me slight pain and discomfort for around a week now. Especially when I lay on my side to go to sleep, it floats substantially in front of my right testicle. When I m standing it is more elevated than my right, and...
