Q: 

A: Hello and welcome to e health forum. Since all your symptoms have lasted for a prolonged period, and most of the tests are normal, they have probably ruled out acute disease processes involving the organ systems like liver, kidney, thyroid, as well as blood disorders. Most likely your symptoms could be due to functional disorders like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, myofascial syndrome, Stress disorder, etc. In case, you still have persistent symptoms, you may consult your doctor, who can prescribe you muscle relaxants or anti inflammatory medications, to treat your condition. In addition, the progress of sarcoidosis (a preexisting medical condition in your case) also needs to be assessed. .vt_bottom_post_links a...


Q: 

A: Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum! Since you have a headache almost daily, what you have is in all probability not a simple migraine but a chronic daily headache (CDH). This can be the primary type‚??without any cause. One simple reason for daily headaches with nausea is compression of cervical spinal nerves. Another reason is TMJ, especially if the headache starts with chewing. The third reason could be severe acidity with or without GERD. The CDH could also be secondary to trauma, raised intracranial hypertension, high blood pressure, temporal arteritis etc. Hence all these need to be ruled out. If the headache lasts for less than 4 hours then it could be a chronic cluster headache or a chronic paroxysmal hemicranias. If it lasts for more than 4 hours it could be...

Q: 

A: It is not clear from your question which type of stroke your father had ‚?? ischemic (infarct) or hemorrhagic (bleeding). Why they gave him tPA and what happened after that? Brain infarcts (85%) happen more often than brain bleeding (15%). Brain infarcts occur when thrombosis happens in a brain artery or a thrombus, created outside the brain (embolus), sticks in a brain artery. People with atrial fibrillation (like your father) are susceptible to develop brain infarcts because a lot of blood clots are created in a heart with atrial fibrillation. Anticoagulant therapy (including Coumadin) is used for treating and further prevention of ischemic strokes. Anticoagulant therapy mustn‚??t be used in case of hemorrhagic stroke because it can worsen the condition. After the
