2175879 tn?1338355028 Doc, The military doctors are now thinking that it was a mild stroke and not a TIA because although some of my symptoms have improved, but I still have weakness on my left side and lightheadeness. I am now going to neurology on friday and they are also sending me to get an ultrasound on my Carotid artery.
Avatar n tn which may or may not indicate that I have been having mild seizures. Are these symptoms of seizures, and a warning of another TIA?
Avatar f tn Hello...TIA's are a warning to our bodies that a full blown stroke CAN be headed our way. How is your dads blood pressure? What about clogged arteries? How is his overall health? There is no way of knowing exactly what will happen as far as if another TIA will hit or if it'll be a full blown stroke..only thing your father can do is take the necessary precautions to lessen the risks.
Avatar f tn She described a feeling like someone putting pressure on the right side of her face and pulling down over. I thought it might have been a TIA/stroke and I am wondering if she should request to see a neurologist??
Avatar m tn I would see the doctor as soon as possible, please do not wait, if it was a stroke or TIA (mini stroke) waiting will only make matters worse.

Avatar n tn and weigh 125 lbs about a year after having a child. I seriously think I had a TIA/Stroke and was misdiagnosed. Does anyone know what kind of doctor I need to go to and how long after a stroke and they still tell if you had one? Please help me because I still have effects from this being trouble speaking and forgetfullness.
Avatar n tn I am a 49 yr old female, who smokes, no Hypertension or diabetes, I have had all symptoms of Stroke/TIA, I had radiating pain down L arm, numbing/tingling up L side of face, profuse sweating, dizziness, I also had slight pain across jaw, no weakness though, this has happened more than one time, all of my test come out negative, is that normal for a TIA that nothing shows? I am afraid that when or if I have a stroke, that will be it since everything comes up negative.
4837124 tn?1359906493 High blood pressure and family history of stroke are major risk for TIAs and stroke. And TIAs are a warning sign that stroke may indeed occur. 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.
Avatar n tn I have greatly enjoyed this forum. Just had TIA on Tuesday. Scared to death. I have Type 2 diabetes. None of you mentioned having this as part of your protocol. Am I the only one?
905378 tn?1244854365 It could also be a TIA. Here's what Google shows in an early listing ... Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) A TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but ... Unlike stroke, when a TIA is over, there's no injury to the brain I would mention it to the doctor. Carcinista could easily be correct also.
Avatar m tn Hi callingallangels, My guess is that a TIA recovery period has some common characteristics akin to a major stroke recovery process. Two months ago, I suffered a TIA out of the blue. Three days in the hospital with all the necessary tests (MRI, CT-scan, catorids, etc.) showed no pre-existing conditions. But the aftermath of the TIA has been an up and down experience, largely dependent on whether I've had a good night of sleep.
Avatar n tn //www.stroke.org/en/about-stroke/types-of-stroke/tia-transient-ischemic-attack/what-is-a-tia Please see your doctor for guidance for your next step if you haven't. We do not want you to have a full stroke. Let us know how you are doing.
Avatar n tn There is a cause for a TIA event to occur - bug your Dr to keep digging to find the cause. A TIA can lead to a bigger stroke. I had tests run for a month on my brain and heart & was told everything was fine. Then after the second incident, a Dr ran a study on the arteries in my brain and found a small aneurysm.TAI's are very disturbing and I can empathize with how you feel. Hang in there but keep looking for the cause. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn This is a temporary blood flow restriction in the brain, not a permanent one. However, a TIA is usually a warning that a stroke could follow and the Doctor should try and establish what caused it, such as a diseased carotid artery.
Avatar m tn Getting my son checked out this week. He was studying for mid-terms in college so for like a few days he was averaging like 4 hours of sleep. Once exams were over he took what he thought was a 20 min. nap but it was 2 hours long. He was exhausted. He said he had the scariest thing happen to him. He woke up and could not move his body -- at all. For a brief few minutes. Then he got tingling back in his fingers and was able to finally move.
1215331 tn?1278590953 You should go to your family doctor right away or at least call the office and explain what happened. You never know you could have had a mild stroke or something. I'm not a doctor, but that's what I would do if I went through what you did.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? A transient ischaemic attack (TIA) often called a mini stroke, happens when the brain’s blood supply is interrupted for a very brief time. The symptoms are very similar to a stroke (such as weakness on one side of the body, loss of sight and slurred speech) but they are temporary, lasting a few minutes or hours, and then disappearing completely within 24 hours.
Avatar f tn The next ninety days are the most critical time for a TIA patient. If another stroke or incident is going to happen it's most likely going to be within that time frame. That's not guarantee that you will have another one though. I had my TIA 11 years ago and haven't had another problem since. I hope this offered some light in this time of fear and confusion.
Avatar f tn if you think you had a TIA get an MRI ASAP. it will show if you had a TIA. 2 yrs ago a i had a TIA, (didn't know what it was at the time), 11 days later i had a full blown stroke.
Avatar f tn My gp referred my case to stroke consultant who without seeing me referred my case back to gp. and im not getting anywhere. are these symptoms related to the TIA im still so tired, sleep alll the time etc.
Avatar m tn This is serious stuff and quite honestly, my symptoms have improved but not gone away. 10% of TIA victims go on to have a major stroke within 90 days (1 in 10), and you now have a 35 to 40% chance of having a major stroke. I don't want to scare you, but you need to press the issue with your Doctor.
Avatar m tn I am a 65 yo white male, 5'10", 230lbs. I had what appeared to be a TIA last April. Went to the ER and was fine within about an hour. The neurologist who happened to be in the ER believes it was caused by sleep apnea, and prescribed weight loss, Elloquis and a CPAP device. I have lost 25lbsand have followed his advice. I just had occasion to see the CT report which I have copied below.
Avatar n tn I recently had a mild stroke in the left hemisphere of my brain. About two weeks later I started having a problem with my left arm and hand falling asleep. At first this was just an annoyance however, the tingling sensation has been happening more often and with more intensity. Could this problem be caused by the stroke? Will it eventually go away? Can I do anything to help eliminate this problem? Could someone explain why this is happening?
Avatar n tn Stoke is listed right on their website so my thought is if it can make a stroke happen then yes, TIA would most likely be in that breakdown as well. good luck http://www.pegasys.com/patient/tools-resources/caregiver-connections/your-role/index.html PEGASYS can cause serious side effects, such as mental health problems and suicide, heart problems, stroke or symptoms of a stroke, new or worsening autoimmune problems, and infections. Some of these side effects may cause death.
