Carotid Stent Cause Headache Blood Flow
Yes: It is not unusual to have headaches on the side of the stent soon after carotid stenting, especially if the carotid stenosis was high grade. These headaches usually resolve within days. Severe headache accompanied by hypertension in this setting can be worrisome and should be discussed with your doctor, as it can be a sign of reperfusion syndrome. ...Read more

Do SEVERE chronicMigraines (& I mean feeling carotid and head blood flow start to SURGE while constricting,)cause significant damage to blood vessels?
On r side of neck I've what feels like very swollen tonsilar or corotid lymph node. It shrinks at night. Could it restrict blood flow & cause stroke?
Unlikely: If would be very unusual for a neck mass to get large enough to compress the main artery going through the neck and then lead to a stroke but having said that I would get the mass evaluate by a physician or ENT doctor to rule out any compression issues plus to make a diagnosis of what this mass might be. ...Read more

Is it to do with blood flow, when I get pain over my carotid and vertebral artery - right side, associated with terrible migraines?
2cm lymph node on top of right carotid artery. Has not grown in 1 year. Is this okay as long as it does not grow or is it cutting off blood flow?
Probably ok: It's not cutting off circulation - your carotid artery is a thick walled, high pressure vessel that's not easily compressed. Lymph nodes in the neck are common and usually benign, but you should be carefully examined for other enlarged nodes in less common locations including on a chest x-ray before writing this 2 cm node off. The fact that it's not enlarging is very good. ...Read more
Had a doppler for the carotid arteries and the conclusion is:accelerated blood flow, reversed blood flow above the carotid bifurcation? Is this serious?

Carotid stenosis: If severe, greater than 60%, then you should consider a potential entarterectomy or even stunting to prevent additional stroke events. Some evidence to suggest also, potential benefit of anti-platelet medication such as Aggrenox and a statin. Discuss with a stroke neurologist, and a vascular surgeon. ...Read more
I have blood in my phlegm. I have cold no cough. I had a stent put in two years ago. I've high BP 217 / 119 and severe headache?
Potentially yes....: Carotid stenting is associated with a 4%-8% stroke risk (higher than endarterectomy), 1%-2% potential risk for a heart attack (lower than endarterectomy), and femoral artery access complications such as bleeding (unique to carotid stenting). In the properly selected patient (suitable anatomy) with active heart disease, previous surgery or neck radiation, carotid stenting is a great procedure. ...Read more
See below.: Patients with calcified arteries or plaque in the arteries in their chest - risk of it breaking off and causing a stroke. This includes many older patients >80 years. Patients with tortuous or twisted arteries - can't get the stent up to the carotid. Some argue that low surgical risk asymptomatic patients should get surgery or nothing due to the higher stroke risk in several studies with stents. ...Read more
Not likely: Perceived cracks in the neck are usually from the joints and ligaments of the cervical spine. However, manipulation of the neck and trauma have been associated with dissection of the arteries in the neck that give blood supply to the brain. ...Read more
Low renal blood flow: Yes, it does. That is why patients with congestive heart failure (chfa) develop edema. The kidney senses this low blood flow and takes steps to increase sodium absorption. This increase in sodium in the body leads to the development of edema. This makes the use of agents that treat this problem necessary. ...Read more

What can cause a blood flow from heart to liver be at borderline fast, can be normal in me? I have no symptoms, I went for annual and here I am!

Every time a test or study is performed on someone, you're going to find something off even if the person is perfectly healthy. It's just part of being human - no two people are exactly alike. ...Read more

Unlikely: Suggest you consult urologist for management of symptomatic large left-sided varicocele. Presence of associated discomfort is good indication that it shoul probably be corrected surgically. Options are: Laparoscopic left spermatic vein clipping (my preference), trans-abdominal vein ligation, microsurgical vein ligation thru scrotum or vein embolisation by interventional radiologist. ...Read more
