Avatar m tn Hey guys i believe that i had a mini stroke this past friday but know on eis giving me the time of the day. the doctor was in and out within5 minutes. two of my fingers went numb followed by blurred vision. i went to call 911 and then couldnt speak and also had a hard time thinking. this was also followed my throwing up. since friday ive stuttered a little here and there. any thought as if you think it was a mini stroke?????
Avatar f tn Sounds like you had a TIA with a residual effect unfortunately. My father had the same thing happen to him. All the best with OT.
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 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...
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 n tn 8), waiting results of other bloods, Age 40, exercise moderate. They said it may be a mini stroke so not to drive for month. Feel Ok since except shoulder feels like it has carried a heavy bag. Was back a work 2 days later altho long trains due to having to catch train. Will see consultant again in a couple of days. Could it be anything else. I don't them to say mini-stroke without considering any other cause.
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 Hi everyone! Hop all is well and kicking the stroke's ass!  I was just wondering, what do you do during a mini stroke? Do you get up and start walking around to get the blood flow going, (that's what I do), or do you sit down and relax? It's crazy that this mini stroke came back into my life! I had it come and go for about six months when I was younger back in 2006. When it happened back then, my whole right side of my body was paralyzed.
Avatar f tn we need to have faith in god & take a good recovery after a mini or a full stroke, good healthy diet, try no to stress out & take everything easy. i had a mini stroke on my rightside brain 29 years old with 3 kids 2 months ago it was a horrible experience still recovering from & praying for all the people with this same bad experience. God will help you.
Avatar m tn I am 78 and had a mini stroke 11 Jun 2014. I was placed in 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.
Avatar f tn Had a mini stroke on January 2018 affected my right leg but both now and getting burning sensation while a walk not much due my fatigue legs.
Avatar m tn t happen often, but when it does, there is usually a cluster of them over a few-hour period. It happened this morning, and the only thing I can link to it was having some unual and very vivid dreams overnight. I awoke feeling a little confused. Any thoughts?
481864 tn?1208324609 G'day, My dad had a mini stroke on Sunday, basically he had numbness in his body. The GP he saw within an hour or two of onset said he had experienced a 'ministroke'. He was walking with a limp on the way to the doctor but was walking well when he left. He later felt dizzy and nauseous. A day later he was taken to another doctor who also confirmed that he suffered a 'mini stroke' and did a quick blod test to determine a very high cholesterol level.
Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
Avatar n tn Hello... I am interested about how they determined that your 2nd procedure was unsuccessful. Did you have recurrence of the arrhythmia? If in fact you still have atrial flutter, I know that the Mayo Clinic does, as a last resort for cure, perform a surgical procedure called a "mini maze." These are usually performed for curative measures for people who suffer with Afib, but there have been successes with Atrial Flutter as well. You could check out the Mayo Clinic online.
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....
Avatar f tn Hi sorry to hear about your mini stroke...well currently he is walking with a cane but for long distance he uses a wheelchair. he has no movement in his arm yet only when he yawns strong. I haven't met or seen anyone yet with this type or surgery.
Avatar m tn No warning whatsoever. With my heart attacks or mini stroke. Especially with the mini stroke. I was watching TV one evening and all of a sudden the vision in my right eye went. In an instant I could only see the bottom of everything with my right eye.
1873696 tn?1405377410 Hi, your symptoms of transient tingling could be just a natural occurrence, when people tend to be in a particular position for long. But it could also be due to an entity called TIA or transient ischemic attack, which as the name indicates there is a temporary lack of blood flow to a particular part of the brain. This usually recovers, but these people are more prone for strokes. And anxiety can cause high blood pressure. So, if your symptoms persist, please have yourself evaluated. Regards.
Avatar f tn I just started on Lipitor was in the hospital for a TIA mini stroke I feel a little shaky a little sore in my legs I was just wondering how long this will last? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Neurology/peripheral-neuopathy-and-foot-drop/show/297809">peripheral neuopathy and foot drop</a>.
Avatar f tn He has had 2 spells since where he was hospitalized, they did not know the first time if it was a mini stroke, on the second time they ruled out mini strokes and diagnosed him with seizures. He was put on seizure meds, the dosage has been changed 3 times. He seems to be doing well now. But he does nothing, he don't get dressed lots of days, he watches TV or sleeps. He was never like this before, he has been outside a couple of times, to ride the mower. Is this normal?
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?
383943 tn?1217722721 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 ..
Avatar f tn Although a stroke can manifest as a transient visual disturbance, that is relatively unusual. But something is going on, and you best have it checked out. Anything having to do with vision is VERY important. You cannot be turned down for medical assistance in the event of possible blindness because of financial reasons. If it happens? Good! Take them to court! (Just make sure that you sue for the cost of a chauffer).
