    DVT-Factor V Leiden

    A few years ago, I was diagnosed with Factor V Leiden after having my second DVT in 6 years. I was prescribed Lovenox injections while in the hospital. Afterwards I was prescribed Warfarin first, then Jantoven; neither worked for me because I could never get my PT levels within range. I'm currently taking Xarelto & it seems to be working. However, I've recently started having severe headaches accompanied by nosebleeds & I'm just wondering if it could be caused by the Xarelto.....

    panic,confusion & unconsciousness

    The other day I was in a very busy store and was feeling uncomfortable (which I thought was the cause, too many people) so I left and went to my car and sat for a few minutes. I could't remember if I had eaten so I went to the gas station and bought a snickers and something to drink. I got really panicked and disoriented in the gas station and had trouble finding my way out. This is the last thing I remember before crashing my car. Apparently I drove about half a mile then off the road and into....

    Can a Concussion be a Catalyst to a Stroke

    Late last December I was stopped for a light and rear ended by a car when the driver was pre-occupied on their cell phone. I only felt a grogginess after my head snapped forward but thought I would be OK. The grogginess soon became a mix of dizziness, periodic headaches, sudden, short term memory loss and a noticeable loss of balance when I hike or play basketball. I saw my doctor about week or so later for a yearly physical and mentioned my symptoms. Blood tests revealed my cholesterol was higher....

    My story. What happened to me? What more can I do to get better?

    This journey of mine started with an incident that happened to me when I was in my apartment last October. Nobody knows exactly what happened. One work day I did not show up at work and I did not call in, and that’s not the way I normally operate. One of my co-workers got very worried and vocal about me missing, to the point my boss drove to my apartment and banged on the door. Someone eventually opened that door, and they found me passed out in my bed, bleeding on the right-hand side of my head....
