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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
