Welcome to the community, please feel free to join our discussions anytime.
I am sorry that you suffered a heart attack and hope you are recovering quickly.
WebMD has some information about Aortic Stenosis . which states: "What are the symptoms?
Aortic valve stenosis is a slow process. For many years, even decades, you will not feel any symptoms. But at some point, the valve will likely become so narrow (often one-fourth of its normal size) that you start having problems.
As aortic valve stenosis gets worse, you may have symptoms such as:
Chest pain (angina). You may have a heavy, tight feeling in your chest. Chest pain is often brought on by exercise, when the heart has to work harder. Feeling dizzy or faint, often after you have been active. Feeling tired and being short of breath when you are active. A fast, slow, or uneven heartbeat (arrhythmia). A feeling that your heart is pounding, racing, or beating unevenly (palpitations)."
You posted an interesting question and I look forward to reading what others have to say.
We must all think alike! I am working on a weekly discussion to help with keeping a record. I agree the journal is a great idea and this May, I plan to kick that idea up a notch so keep a look out for the Migraine Journal in May!
The survey states: "One reason for this gap may be that migraines are often addressed as part of a larger health discussion instead of as a point of focus.
"This new information may help many migraines suffers and doctors understand why there could be gaps and encourage doctors and patients to communicate in more detail. The survey also indicates that important conversations between doctor and patient may not be "robust"."
After reading the study, what steps can you take to ensure better communication between you and your doctor?View Thread
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute or an hour or a day or a year but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. Lance Armstrong
I am sorry your daughter is suffering from migraines and hope she finds relief soon. While you wait for members to reply, WebMD has an article entitled: Your Child's Headache or Migraine that might be useful.
