1474856 tn?1288289049 I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system. I may need to go outside of the network to get "real" treatment, not just some Dr calling me crazy and saying my depression is an issue. i have not have a depression problem for years. This is not depression. I am sad after having this go on for over a month now & worried, but me feeling this did not cause it.

Avatar n tn A TIA is a mini stroke. In the hospital the Doctor and nurses will keep close eye on vitals and and blood count and be very watchful to make sure that a stroke doesn't happen, the next 48 hours are cruseful. God Bless you and Yours!

Avatar n tn We met the doctor and decided we would go the Davinci route, eliminating the sternotomy. He mentioned a small incision under the breast; but did not call it a mini-sternotomy. If he had I would have researched it and possibly talked my moher into the sternotomy since the mini-thoracotomies can be quite painful. She had the surgery and there were a couple of setbacks. One, they nicked her lung and she had a chest tube in for 5 days.
Avatar n tn I am not sure how I can get a second opinion? I am not sure how long is to long for a follow up after the hospital??

Avatar n tn I'm glad your husband's BP is coming down. I am not a doctor, so I have no idea what could have happened. Maybe a mini-stroke? I just don't know, sorry. Was he on BP meds BEFORE this happened? What is he taking now? I'll keep him in my prayers...

2034625 tn?1392643292 Diplopia that I had hoped was just a mini-flare kind of thing is still here 10 days or so later and getting worse, not better. Add to that the fact that two fingers on my right had and my right toe not moving on command yesterday for the first time and I'm suspecting a new flare is trying to sneak its way into my life. Yesterday I had an appointment with my neuro that I have to drive an hour and a half to see.
Avatar n tn How does one know if they have had a mini-stroke especially if their Doctor is not willing to do further tests? What tests of the head or brain are available to determine this ? Do tell, please, as my Doctor says there is nothing I can do but live with the attacks which I have now had 4 of in just over a week ! He seems to think they are just Migraine Variants but they really present like a min-stoke and my family thinks s too. Ta, K.
Avatar f tn Why were you put on Plavix in the beginning... for heart attack or stroke? Absolutely going off of it can lead to a mini-stroke/TIA, but going odd wont CAUSE one. Unfortunately you have to go off before a biopsy as it makes your blood thinner and there is too much risk of bleeding. Don't worry too much about the TIA, most have no long standing effects unless you have a LOT of them. So you want to go back on the Plavix and DON'T miss any doses! It should work right away.
Avatar f tn I believe that the greatest risk is your likelihood of a full blown stroke, which of course can be life threatening. A TIA (mini stroke) is usually considered a warning sign by Doctors that something needs to be addressed. I assume they have given you medication to help lower the risk of a clot forming? such as aspirin?
Avatar m tn Oh Maggie I don't think anyone can say for sure. You son needs to see a neurologist or go to the ER. He really should have a MRI done. What's important is if he did suffer a TIA or mini-stroke they may be able to find a cause, which you know is important. People who have a stroke, there really isn't such a thing as a small stroke, are more likely to have another one. I would have him checked out as soon as possible....
