Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke info

stroke

I read a article about migraines are related to strokes or that they do damage to the brain as would a stroke. Could you clear this up for me? It also stated that for people who get aura's on the onset of a migraine that is is actually a sign that the brain isn't getting enough oxygen. Is this just a theory? What are the signifigance of this info to people with migraines?
I would love to know what this is and what causes it. I've heard this could be TIA's, Absence Seizuzres or Mini Stroke. Has anyone have a similar experience? Thank You! This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/295029'>short memory loss seizures</a>.
Thank you for responding to my question. I talked with another doctor on Justanswer and apparently my stroke was a "mini stroke" or TIA. It wasn't as deep in the brain as yours was so it didn't cause any problems. They still didnn't say why I have the dizziness though. So I guess I'll just have to learn to live with it.. Thanks for the tip about the stomach muscles --I;ll be trying it. Hope things have gotten better for you .

I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a stroke in the cerebellum and signs of a mini stroke 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.
Over xmas he went blind in his left eye and the eye 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. Last night he was having eye pain and called 911.
Hello Dear, Transient Ischaemic Attack or a mini stroke is caused by the temporary disturbance of blood supply to a restricted area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that usually persists for less than 24 hours.The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision ; difficulty speaking (aphasia); weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis); and numbness or tingling (paresthesia), usually on one side of the body,sudden severe headache.
She IS still on Lamictal, taken twice a day, and Plavix with aspirin, etc. So I'm just not sure if she had a mini-stroke or another seizure. So that's my question - Did she have a mini-stroke or a seizure (today)? Any relevant info is greatly appreciated.
I do believe, and medical texts support, that strokes can cause seizures, and if your daughter's md isn't aware of it, then show them the Merrik Manual (under stroke), or other supported material. I hope this info. helps.
I cannot give you a clinical diagnosis over the internet, and the information you provide is limited. On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
If I remember right the BAM induced stroke is ischemic. There is info on the internet on this. I'm very sorry to hear about your baby.
I am 2 years post dissection with pseudoaneurysm (no stroke--just mini strokes) and no healing. I have 5 year old twins and my husband and I would really like to have another. My symptoms are mostly under control but doctors seem unsure of the risk. I had preclampsia with the twins at 36 weeks and delivered via c-section at 37 weeks.
I had a stroke at birth. The doctors told my mother that I would never be able to do anything for myself. I would never walk, talk, feed myself, anything by myself. But they were wrong I just turned 21 and I'm getting married in febuary 2007. I can do everything that is put in my way. I want to have a baby more than anything and my mother says that I will more and likely have to have a c-section and I realize that. My stroke was caused by stress in the birth cannal.
My internist says the report shows small vessel disease in my brain whish he says are tiny infarcts or mini strokes. Does this mean I am having effects of strokes or will have a major stroke ? I am so confused right now I don't know what to do next or what Dr. to see.
Unlike everybody else here, I am the husband and my wife had a TIA (mini stroke) in June 2009. The reasons behind the stroke to this day have never been answered. The doctors initially tried every test (apart from the TEE - transesophogeal echocardiogram). No answers were found. The background of events behind the stroke are what we truly believe hold the answer to the event itself.
It is nonsense that incontinence after a stroke is forever. There is more nonsense going on about how to care for the stroke damaged elderly than I can believe. So never give up hope.
Hi, I have been reading your posts, and my husband is currently on a trach, after his stroke 7 wks ago. Can you give me more info about what type of swallow test and trachea tests were done on him.

I recently got diagnosed with complicated migraines. I had neurological symptoms (several visual field defecits, numbness in the leg, and buzing in a foot), which lasted for several days, but no headache associated with it. I do get headaches, maybe 2x per year, but these are not associated with the any of the neurological symptoms. I had several test, including a CT scan and a MRI, after which I was diagnosed by a neurologist as having migraines.

I go back and forth about the pro's and con's of this procedure and about staying on Coumadin and the chances of having another stroke. I constantly worry about having another stroke. If I have this procedure, I will probably worry about having this device move or break over time in the middle of my heart during exercise. I am really scared! What do you think is the less risky? What should I do?
They did all the normal tests MRI, MRA, and tons of blood work. Although the CT scan showed something that they thought may have been a mini stroke the other tests ruled it out and they diagnosed me with a silent or atypical migraine. I had all symptoms of a stroke. The numbness, tingling, drooping of the eyes and mouth on one side, no facial expressions and I could hardly talk. It has been one week and my strength is still not back on my right side and and my speech is still very slurred.
Anyone functioning well enough to answer, to discuss your coping with stroke deficits that have remained for a year ago or longer. My stroke was more than 3.5 years ago and I still have some resentment about everything that I can't do. I would like to get a better attitude about it. But either way you are handling it, it would be helpful for me to hear about anyone else who still struggles with problems.
I would just like to know if there is any way to tell now even though it has been a couple years because i would like to know if i am at risk for having another if it was indeed a stroke. sorry this was so long and not very grammatical but any info would be really appreciated!
I am so afraid that they are going to continue to get worse until I end up having a major stroke. Has anyone had a stroke or know someone else with Lyme disease that suffered a stroke? I have not seen much in written symptomology about causing stroke but with this disease I "never say never".
Has the doctor checked you for Parkinson's carried out tests if you have had a mini stroke? Is there a different doctor at the practice that you could see, that could look at your problems from a different angle? It appears that this particular doctor has told you that your symptosm are psychological, because he has run out of ideas as to what your underlying problem is.
Hello, My father had got a stroke about 3 years ago due to which many brain cells in the Thalamus area were affected. He has Blood pressure and is Diabetic. 3 months after the stroke he started facing great pain in the leg, thighs , hands and shoulders followed by swelling of the palm and legs. There is also burning sensation and tingling/pressure and numbness in the feet and hands which he is not able to bear. We have consulted many many doctors but with no cure.

What questions should I ask my neurologist about my recent brain mri and mra, revealing white spots.For 2 days I saw bright colored stringy threads in both eyes, and on the 2nd day a small "smudge" of visual blurring began, and the bright lights went away. I then experienced a 30 minute episode of global amnesia and confusion. The "smudge" remains, only slightly. The visual symptoms were diagnosed by a retinologist as a "mini-stroke" in my right eye.
From what I can see, myasthenia gravis is a problem with the immune system producing anti-bodies that attack one's own body, but with your father's history of stroke, I wonder if he couldn't have suffered a kind of mini-stroke? Please see private message for more info on what tests they can do to try and confirm a diagnosis of myasthenia gravis and on treatment for it and also info on Bell's palsy. Is your father taking any medication to try to prevent further strokes?
