Study shows that stroke may be misdiagnosed in people under 50

Posted on October 26th, 2011 No Comments

Strokes are the fourth leading cause of death and in the U.S., there about 800,000 strokes occur each year. Many people associate strokes with people over the age of 50, but younger adults can also suffer from them.

Nearly 80,000 of stroke sufferers each year are under the age of 50. A study was recently done on how younger stroke sufferers were diagnosed in the ER.

The study found that one out of every seven people who went to the hospital while suffering a stroke were misdiagnosed. Strokes can be a challenging thing to diagnose because symptoms can vary significantly.

The five major symptoms include numbness and weakness on one side of the body, sudden headache, difficulty speaking, loss of sight,  and dizziness. Any combination of these symptoms occur in a person suffering from a stroke. An acronym to remember in order to determine if you are suffering from a stroke is FAST. F is for face, A is for arms, S is for speech and T is for time.

Recently, strokes have occurred in young women who have taken Yaz and Yasmin birth control. If this has happened to you, contact the Yasmin stroke lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187.

Yaz often prescribed for PMDD

Posted on August 30th, 2011 No Comments

The oral contraceptive, Yaz, is often prescribed for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder because it helps to ease the symptoms. Many women suffer from PMS which can come with bloating, irritability, cramping and moodiness, but PMDD is more severe and affects less women.

Doctors do not know the cause of of PMDD, but it is thought that it is connected to a person’s hormone levels fluctuating when the body is preparing for menstruation to begin. Symptoms of PMDD include extreme irritability, severe cramping, depression, suicidal thoughts, headaches, severe mood swings and disinterest in activities.

Yaz is frequently used to prevent these symptoms of PMDD, but the oral contraceptive has been linked to serious negative health side effects. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a serious side effect of Yaz such as a stroke, contact the Yaz stroke lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.
