Mini stroke in the eye

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke in the eye

stroke

in December 2009 for no apparent reason I lost most of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> sight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>. I was told then that was too close to the brain and that I would have to be watchful. Now this past week or so I have had a nauseating headache over that eye. About 2 weeks ago I was washing my hair and that eye burned as though it was dry. So dry it hurt. Now the weekend of 7/30 I sat down outside and my left leg went numb for about 2 or 3 minutes. Then nothing. There was no warning or pain at all.
I am 78 and had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> 11 Jun 2014. I was placed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the hospital for overnight observation and was released the following day to my family doctor. I have high blood pressure so he placed me on Exforge 10-325-25mg HCT and also Clopidogrel 75mg in the hospital I had a MRA, MRI, CATSCAN, Chest Xray and several blood tests. I lost peripheral vision in the left eye. When I left the hospital I had this slight lump across from my left ear about 1 inch long pointing to the top of my head.
I also have a small amount of pressure behind my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> and right side of the back of my head. When I lay down there is slight discomfort <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right ear but I lay on my left side. It hurts to use my right hand/arm because of the soreness. Is it possible that without me realizing it that I may have had a mini stroke and not know it or am I over reacting? Since then my blood pressure has been 150/90.
I woke up at 1am with a sharp pain going from the back of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> to the back of my neck. It was throbbing. After a couple of minutes i stated feeling sick. I decided to take some sendol, so i went down stairs, was feeling a bit dizzy. I started running the tap for water and suddenly my vision become all wierd, like lots of different spots moving all over the place.
Later, the next day, I had really bad eye pain and also a severe pain in the right side of my head. I have had the pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> and the side of the head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the past. Sometimes, the pain in my head will be so bad that I cannot continue doing what I was doing. It usually passes within a minute or two. My eye pain, however, will usually hang around for quite a bit longer. I do wear glasses and get my eyes checked regularly. I went to an opthalmologist who said she thought I had a TIA.
I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> behind my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> now I have a headache all the time is this normal?I had a carotid endarterectomy on the right side of my neck dec 20th 2013 ,Feb 18 2014 started having problems with my right eye.I went to the eye dr and he sent me to my dr that did the carotid endarterectomy and he said it was a mini stroke.I have like a gray fog over my eye all the time and like northern lights in the corner.My head hurts bad sometimes and I get nauseated.
That should be monitored too so your blood is the right. . . . consistency I guess you'd call it. I lost the sight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> a couple years ago. It went all blurry for about 10 minutes. I did check in with my doctor just to make sure I didn't have a TIA. Everything was clear. At least call and ask to see if they think it's significant. Be sure to mention your a-fib.
These symptoms are suggestive of multiple sclerosis, a demyelinating disorder affecting the white matter of the brain. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs.
Basal ganglia are also located <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the same region at the base of the forebrain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the temporal region. Periventricular cyst is a white matter lesion that may result from hypotension, ischemia, and coagulation necrosis. Decreased blood flow affects the white matter at the superolateral borders of the lateral ventricles.This decreased blood flow to brain tissue causes it to soften up and eventually die, leaving behind cysts filled with fluid.
If blood clots are present in the left heart, they can then be pumped out of the heart into the brain causing a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span>. Hence, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> patients with migraine and PFO, there would be an increased risk for stroke. Please recognize that the vast majority of people with PFO are entirely asymptomatic and live normal lives without ever suffering from stroke.
My words become stuttered and/or slurred as if I'm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the middle of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span>! No dr believed me this was going on until he seen it with his eyes (my neurologist, mind you) So again, he has no clue what's going on and has just given me more pain pills to ease my troubles!!!!! So here I am with more headaches, more eye pain (which are now getting to the point of me waking up with pink rings around my iris and bloodshot eyes???
These symptoms may begin — often not causing much notice — <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your fingers and toes. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> some people, symptoms begin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the arms or even the face. As the disorder progresses, muscle weakness can evolve into paralysis.
Thank you for your advice .My doctor is sending me for ct to see why i am having tia and how much damage was done by prev stroke i don't know how many i have had i just know what my doc. has told me i am still shocked. keep in touch tamtam ..
And for the Love of Mike, stay off the symptom sites! Actually I'm quite impressed that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> was the ONLY disease you now have! See your doc.
Both of my parents have suffered mild strokes (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both cases effecting one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>) They both drink straight vodka daily. Probably a 16 oz glass filed with ice then vodka poured in.
A lot of the confusion that your mom is experiencing will subside <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the months to come. My husband (56 at the time) had the same kind of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> as your mom. He was confused quite a bit. As the brain absorbs the blood caused by the burst vessel, your mom will come back to herself. My husbands stroke was 10 months ago. One of his deficits was mild loss of short term memory. It comes and goes. Some times he would get confused about where he was at but all that is fine now.
I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the cerebellum and signs of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> that they classified as 'old'. I fortunately did not have ongoing loss of speech, or weakness in limbs etc...but have suffered from weird dizziness and electric shock feelings in my head. They seem to get better - but then get wrose again....Dr's are saying it is maybe anxiety --but is not. I have had anxiety before and these are different.
I also had a cold feeling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my left hand down to my fingertips. I awoke <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the morning with a pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the left side of my neck which subsided within 5 minutes or so. The numbness in my left arm did not go away however. So I went to the ER that evening. There they did a CT scan of my head and did not find anything abnormal. The ER doctor chalked it up to bad side effects from the Maxalt which should go away on their own.
I am still experiencing pain in my neck, I have a stiff neck and I am also experiencing shocks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the back of my head and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the tempral area. Vision is still cloudy. This past week I have expierenced a TIA. Did not know it was happening, just got out of the hospital on Monday. Please let me know I am concerned.
A small part was left and (has not grown) b/c it was on a major artery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the brain. Over xmas he went blind <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> his left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> doctor said he may have had a mini stroke. He thought it was due to the tumor that was remaining. He seen his neurologist and he said it wasnt the cause. They ran all kinds of test from blood work, mri, cat scan and the artery check. And we aare waiting for the artery check results. The doctors could not find anything on the ct and mri.
4 weeks ago due to losing sight in one eye pain in right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> blurred vision <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both eyes wavy lines <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both eyes no feeling on the right side of face leg arm. slurred speech failed my vision test in hospital because could not see doctors fingers only wavy lines and blurred vision.had first t.i.a 3 years ago. this is the second one 4 weeks ago. doctors told me annother t.i a. then changed there minds after having mri scan as it dident show up on mri scan. but i have since found out t.i.
the things im worried about are is it possible for this to happen again and if so will it be more severe or minor, and also i've been noticing a change in the way this person drives they have become a little more aggressive when they are driving and a little less unaware of the surroundings also they have frequently noticed flashes in their right eye, left part of the brain.
I have always had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> twitches usually on the right side but for at least a month or so now I started with twitching but now it is actually to the point of I can feel it when it is going to happen and it makes my eye droop for the time that is is happening and kind of pulls my face.And I can feel a pressure behind my left eye.Today I actually was sitting in church and felt sharp little pains in my chest for about 5 minutes.
or due to other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span> problems I had prior to MRI? I still have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right face following the MRI test, and what could be done now? I appreciate your kind opinion on this matter please.
I didn't have insurance at the time either but if it were possible to have prevented the actual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> any amount of money <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the world would have been worth it to me.
I also had headaches for 4 months and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> January of this year 2012 I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>i</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> and now I have some memory loss and I still get dizzy, headaches, and I am always tired. My eye sight also goes blurry once in a while. I have to go to neurologist on the 14th of this month (February). I hate this I wish it would get better. How are you feeling now.

I did see a doctor, I had a CT-showed nothing, Blood test-showed nothing, MRI-it showed 8-10 lesion in the white matter of my brain. The Neurologist said it could be MS, but the spots were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the wrong part of the brain, he said most likely it was mini strokes. He wanted me to have a spinal tap, but I refused. He said we could rerun the MRI in 6 months to a year, if it was MS the white spots would have changed.
