no... those could be signs of a lot of different things. it is not necessarily a stroke. if it is recurring then you need to see a doctor.... it sounds to me like a petite mal seizure, in which the seizure does not effect motor function but it does effect brain function.

Hi, I know a lot about aviation and how to fly planes, and I am 15 years old! My dream is to become an Airline Pilot, however I do have a lazy eye. The eye can correct itself if I shut my other eye and if I had 20/20 vision in each eye (including the lazy eye) would that be acceptable for a class 1 & 2 Medical examination? I have also looked at other websites, which says you can get a SODA and other government waivers, so if you can prove that you can fly the plane, they can accept you! Is this correct? If you do not have this information, could you please inform me of where I could get the information.

I have a 22 month old daughter with lazy eye. Most often her left eye goes out to the side, but occasionally her right eye will go out and up a bit. I took her to a local eye doctor who gave me very little information and said because she is to young to test her vision she cant be treated right now. Can she be treated at this age and if so what are the treatments?

My father, age 78, is in excellent health and only takes medication for hypercholesterolemia (low 200 s). He recently started Erythromycin for head and chest congestion and sore throat. After taking this for a few days he had blood blisters erupt in his scalp and ears. His head felt a lot of pressure and he was worried he might be having a stroke. His neck and head were stiff with some numbness in his right arm. He DC d the antibiotic and went to his doctor, who placed him on Prednisone. Now he is a little groggy and isn t feeling well so he stopped the Prednisone. He sounds weak and we aren t sure why he was put on the Prednisone. My question is - why take Prednisone if the blisters are drying up? What is the benefit versus the risks?

Have mild chest pains after walkng for 20 minutes. They last about 15 minutes and when I slow down they go away. The rest of the day I just feel somewhat tired. Had echo,stress test on tread mill and angiogram CT scan. They said my heart is fine but I have some indictation of blocked arteries. One of them appears to be about 55-70% but they do not want to do an angiogram with stent. I had a liver transplant last Dec 2009 and it is fine. I maintain a good BP and pulse rate is a little low. After walking my BP is about 119/65 and HR is 62. Always, but I do have morning hypertension and am taking Cozaar and Norvasc along with Prograff,Imuran--Immunosurpressants for LIVER and Bactrim. The seem to cause headaches EVERY night about 2am that last for several hours. thought I was having a stroke but they ruled that out. Went to ER several times thinking that I was having a heart attack. EKG shows nothing and the heart enzyme tests are negative. I am puzzled. My dentist who is an avid runner said that I may be having ANGINA and to take my NITRO with me. I don t want to stop walking but this has been gpoing on for 3 months and nothing has been diagnosed? Thank You.
