It is highly recommended that you go for regular follow-up with your attending physician for proper evaluation and management of risk factors to prevent any recurrence of stroke. Take care and do keep us posted.

About 3 weeks ago, I started feeling dizzy when I moved my head or even moved my eyes. This made me nauseas. I went to a GP dr., treated me for fluid in my ear. Still no better, went to ENT dr., treated me with steroid injection and steroid pills. Still no better. My dad thinks it's my nerves or anxiety. Then, 2 days ago I noticed tingling in my left leg in one spot. Didn't think anything of it. The next morning, I woke up with the tingling and now around my ankle, also in my left arm.
I am a 52 year old woman, I have Diabetes 1, and Gerd. For 3 months now I have been dealing with extreme high blood pressure.

Just went through that myself. I have been on sythroid for 12 years, three years ago I started having palpitations. My doc gave me a tranquilizer and said it was stress. Then in Sept.

My doc gave me a beta blocker which caused heart attack symptoms . . .the only way to get rid of the angina was to pop three nitroglycerin tabs.

Normally my angina is just pressure for no apparent reason (comes and goes for a few hours) but I've had a few very scary incidents over the past couple of months, severe angina, at times waking me up at night and too afraid to move even to get my nitroglycerin. My cardiologist doesn't seem to think much of any of it, put me on a CCB a month before all these scary events occurred. My cholesterol is 213, but my ratio was good, so no problem there.
I'm 37 oh yeah 37!
