    Mid-August my husband had a stroke. He tried to speak to me first thing on a Monday morn but no words came out. We both figured out what was probably happening but we were still uncertain as he had no other symptoms. My husband talked me out of ER or ambulance & I ended up squeezing him into an appointment with my cardiologist. He got tested carotid, echo,EKG, heart monitoring service and Dr ended up keeping him on 325 & a statin. Then a week ago, he began to notice a cloud or obstruction in his upper vision on the...

    Vice President Pence said Tuesday that he doesn’t “recall” being told to be on “standby” when President Trump made an unannounced visit to Walter Reed Medical Center last year. “I don’t recall being told to be on standby,” Pence told Fox News’s Bret Baier when pressed on an account included in a new book from New York Times correspondent Michael Schmidt. “I was informed that the president had a doctor’s appointment.” “I’ve got to tell you, part of this job is you’re always on standby. You’re vice president of the United States,” Pence continued. “The American people can be confident...
  • The Drudge Report has become an embarrassing Never-Trump cringe fest

    In the latest slew of "mini-stroke" hit pieces against the president, the once-conservative Drudge Report titled its headlining story, "Trump Denies Mini-Stroke Sent Him To Hospital." The news aggregation site sourced a CNN video of President Donald Trump allegedly dragging his right leg while touring a North Carolina laboratory back in July. Trump on Tuesday denied the leftist spin that he suffered "a series of mini-strokes" prompting an unscheduled visit to Walter Reed hospital in November 2019. Trump's physician, Dr. Sean Conley, even cleared his health record in a statement, affirming that Trump is "fit to execute the duties of...
  • Statins may not slash the risk of dying from heart disease: Controversial study claims the cheap cholesterol-busting pills offer no 'consistent benefit'

    Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 3 August 2020 | ELEANOR HAYWARD
    Statins are not particularly effective at reducing the risk of dying from heart disease, a study claims. Scientists analysed 35 studies into the effects of the drugs which lower 'bad' LDL cholesterol and found the pills have no consistent benefit. The research, published in the British Medical Journal, found three quarters of all trials reported no reduction in mortality among those who took the drugs. And half of all studies suggested that cholesterol-busting pills did not prevent heart attacks or strokes. The research flies in the face of decades of medical advice. Authors claimed doctors have overlooked evidence that suggests...

    Doctors sound alarm about patients in their 30s and 40s left debilitated or dead. Some didn’t even know they were infected. The man was among several recent stroke patients in their 30s to 40s who were all infected with the coronavirus. The median age for that type of severe stroke is 74. As Oxley, an interventional neurologist, began the procedure to remove the clot, he observed something he had never seen before. On the monitors, the brain typically shows up as a tangle of black squiggles — “like a can of spaghetti,” he said — that provide a map of...
  • I Ran 8 Half Marathons. Then, at 38, I Had a Stroke.

    Runner's World ^ | December 27, 2019 | Laura Pugh, as told to Peter Moore
    I certainly didn’t fit the classic profile of the aging stroke victim. At the time of my brain explosion, I was 38. I’d run eight half-marathons and had a diet and exercise regimen that helped me cross those finish lines. But I also had an intense job that involved booking groups—including NBA teams—into hotels in San Francisco. That’s what I was doing at 2 a.m. on the Friday before Christmas in 2013, welcoming the Los Angeles Lakers to their hotel. I got four hours of sleep that night, then drove 90 miles to my mother’s house to drop off holiday...

    George Papadopoulos A junior member of the Trump foreign policy advisory team in 2016, George Papadopoulos was approached by FBI agents in Chicago, where he lived with his mother after the election while waiting for what he hoped would be an offer to join the new administration. The agents said they just wanted to talk to him about contacts he’d made with people in London during the campaign. He spoke to them without a lawyer or the benefit of notes, emails or a calendar to refresh his recollection — a decision he would later regret. One of the interviews was...

    Before her life changed last year, Lauren Ziegler hated running. The Grand Valley State University student, now 22, grew up playing team sports in high school, then joined a CrossFit club in college as a way to stay fit as an undergrad. “I started competing in CrossFit competitions in college,” Ziegler told Runner’s World. “I loved every part of my CrossFit workouts except for the running. It was my least favorite thing in the world. The most I would ever run was two or three miles a week.” One morning before class in December 2018, Ziegler woke up to find...

    Jessica Guedes, 30, a nurse, was six months pregnant and apparently healthy when she fell ill in the limo on the way to the church last Sunday in São Paulo. At first her family thought she was suffering from anxiety due to wedding nerves after she complained of feeling dizzy with pains in her neck. Because of this, the entourage was running late and they were unaware the victim was suffering from the pre-eclampsia which would shortly rob her of her young life and motherhood. The bride was declared brain dead by doctors shortly after arriving at the hospital. Pre-eclampsia...

    Last January, Lauren Barnathan, 31, didn’t realize what was happening when she tried to roll over in bed but couldn’t because her left side was limp. The Tampa, Florida, resident had always been fit and active, so the tell-tale signs she was experiencing didn’t add up in her mind for someone her age. As soon as her then-fiancé flipped on the bedside light, however, he knew exactly what was happening: Lauren was having a stroke. Adam Barnathan, 32, an emergency medicine doctor, recognized the facial droop, inability to use one side of her body, and slurred speech that he often...

    Representative Jerrold Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, was taken to a hospital after fainting during a news conference on Friday in Manhattan. Mr. Nadler, 71, was seated at a table in a gymnasium at Public School 199 on the Upper West Side, where Mayor Bill de Blasio was heralding the expansion of New York City’s speed camera program. Thirty minutes after Mr. Nadler, a Democrat, made brief remarks, his head appeared to slump. Three medical professionals attended to Mr. Nadler, and Mr. de Blasio helped Mr. Nadler to drink. A fan was turned on and the gymnasium...

    It was hard to miss seeing Manny Garcia either out for a run or coaching soccer in his hometown of Mission, Texas, in 2014. He was out running almost every morning before his teaching job at Nikki Rowe High School, and then back out to coach the soccer team in the afternoons. He was healthy, though the runs were to shed a few unwanted pounds to get him below 200. That was his only goal, at least until January 2, 2014. He had finished soccer practice and mowed the lawn, so he lay down to watch TV. That was the...

    GUTHRIE, Okla. -- A 28-year-old from Oklahoma had a stroke caused by popping his neck, according to KOCO. Doctors said the act of popping his neck caused Josh Hader to tear his vertebral artery. "The moment I heard the pop, everything on my left side started to go numb," Hader said. "I got up and tried to get an ice pack from the fridge, and I remember I couldn't walk straight." As bad as this all sounds, Hader's doctor said it could have been even worse. "He could have formed more clot on that tear and had a life-ending stroke,"...

    HAVING to get up in the middle of the night to pee could mean you have high blood pressure, scientists have discovered. The risk is raised by 40 per cent by trips to the loo. And the more times you get up, the higher the chance. High blood pressure can lead to heart attacks and strokes if left untreated. More than one in four adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many won't realise it. Dr Satoshi Konno of Japan’s Tohoku Rosai Hospital, which quizzed 3,749 people, warned sufferers to cut salt intake. Compared to western countries, people...
