Stroke Overview

Stroke (also known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or brain attack) is a medical condition in which poor blood flow to the brain causes cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. Both cause parts of the brain to stop functioning properly.

flu like symptoms with Aggrenox

I'm just not sure what is going on...I've been on Aggrenox for several weeks, at first I just had a mild headache for a few days and that's about it...and then I came down with a cold & running nose with body aches....it's about 5 days later and I'm still having a sick-like flu feeling...I'm trying to figure out whether it's the Aggrenox or if I'm still infected with the flu virus...all my family at present has the flu... ## It is hard to say, because Aggrenox has been known to cause upper respiratory tract infections, as a side effect in some people that take it, along with coughing, nausea, headache, and dizziness. So, it could be the medication, illness, or even a combination of both. How are you feeling, now? Has there been any change? Have you co...

green round pill with heart logo

Found small aqua green pill on my bench with a heart logo on 1 side and 2 triangle shapes on the other. Not mine and i hav sml kids who could hav got to it can u tell me what it is? ## I have no idea but im telling you now, Ive never heard of any pharmaceutical company that stamps hearts on pills.

I'm not sure about the triangle shapes you mentioned, but a few things to take note of in this particular pill are the texture (i.e. chalky?), smell, and even the taste or dimensions if you ...

Medication suggestions, please, for tremors

Question. Anyone have a stroke and a couple months afterward develop a palsy like tremor. Is there a med to treat this? My left side, affected by the stroke, later developed a terrible palsy, for lack of word. This includes the shoulder, shoulder blade left leg. Used to cut hair. Can't anymore. Can barely butter my toast without crushing it. Can't hold a beverage in left hand. Would a parkinsons drug help me? Very disabling. If I had some idea what medication may help control this I could propose such to my primary care doctor. I try, at all cost to stay away from specialists. Too many doctors. The idea that it was not there right after stroke, suggests something happened neurologically after coming home. What drug controls tremors in parkinsons? This is embarrassing, especially...
