Avatar n tn if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.
Avatar m tn Is it likely that this was just a migraine and not TIA or a stroke? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I have no insurance and it would be very costly go to the ER...
2175879 tn?1338358628 It was determined today by another doctor that I had a mild stroke, not a TIA. That explains atleast for me, why although my symptoms have improved but not gone away like a TIA is expected to. Reading all these questions on TIA sure helped me deal with this, but I think that there are other people that have had strokes and been labled as TIA's because, just like me, the stroke fixed itself, but has left its footprint.
Avatar n tn Hi Angie , The symptoms of your mother do suggest of a mild stroke . Please go for a CT scan and MRI of the brain immediately . These will help to diagnose whether it is a stroke and whether the stroke is ischemic or haemorrhagic . If left untreated , it may lead to paralysis on one side of the body . Please discuss the management plan with a neurologist after the diagnostic tests are done . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
Avatar n tn Do these syptomns sound like she whould have a CAT to prove or disprove any possibilty of a Mild Stroke due to heavy Wine and Smoking? Since she is hospitalized presently recovering form her broken hip, should they also test for a stroke?
Avatar n tn At 39 I was diagnosed with a TIA/mini-stroke. Initial Sympton: White light covered my sight and I started to mumble and unable to formulate words/or communicate with my co-workers. I went home "slept it off" and the next day returned to the office however, I couldn't put my thoughts together while crafting emails and went to the emergency room (Navy Medical Portsmouth, Va). A highly respected neurologist, after many many tests...
2175879 tn?1338358628 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 The initial symptoms could have been signs of stroke versus TIA, seizure, migraine variant, or even a problem in his cervical spine. Now with mixed symptoms, it makes it more difficult to be certain the cause. Without taking a history and examining your father I cannot narrow the possible causes. I would recommend having a consultation with a neurologist. Your father may need an EEG and perhaps a MRI of his cervical spine (neck). His blood pressure and cholesterol should be controlled.
Avatar n tn they said maybe its something thats developing over time and MRis just arent picking it up yet. so my questions to you are 1)Are the stroke neuros right in saying to rule out stroke and TIA? 2)Have you guys ever come across or heard about any condition like this( left side arm;leg;tounge subjective sensation with facial tingling but with normal strenth now happening daily and for most of day)?
Avatar m tn I am constantly in turmoil over this, feeling very depressed and even suicidal on a daily basis, My stroke was not a bleed, it was a mild stroke, possibly caused by a clot from the diagnosed furred up carotid artery in my neck. I just need some answers or other experiences and how they have coped or resolved. My grown up children, aged 30, 24 and 21 and myself and wife are getting exceedingly worried, as I am having more of these episodes especially over the last 8-10months.
Avatar n tn This was a mild stroke but could have been worse. See your nuro. and tell her about this particular situation He is being treated with Plavix for platelett sticking problem Baby Asprin 81 mg Co Q 10 200mg Topomax 75 mg for migranes and seisures Lipitor for his hig cholesteral problem( you might not have that prob) He is currently seeing Dr. Gopinathan at NYU in NY City he is the best Head guy we have seen.

Avatar m tn 00 this morning masturbating in an attempt to put myself to sleep when I suddenly noticed intense numbness in my right arm and leg. Being a hypochondriac, I looked up my symptoms on Google and saw that Stroke and TIA were the main possible causes. However, the only symptom I had was the numbness; I had no trouble speaking, walking, or understanding what others were saying, and the only headache I had was the same sinus headache I'd had for hours.
Avatar m tn Sometimes, but not always, I have had some swirling rosette patterns in my peripheral visual fields, mild numbness on one side, especially lips and fingertips. If I can get to a paper bag and rebreathe carbon dioxide for a couple of minutes, usually the symptoms dissipate quickly. However, if I allow the symptoms to run their course, I am usually left with a dull basilar headache, which is noticeable even into the next day. I generally take a couple of aspirin and go about my business.
Avatar f tn I will provide some information that I hope will be useful. A TIA is not common in a 24 year old person without a significant medical condition, so I am not sure exactly if you were told you had a TIA or not. Regarding your symptoms, you have some symptoms that sound very neurological, and others that could be associated and caused by neurologic problems or not.
Avatar n tn In 1998 I suffered a Pica stroke and was very fortunate as other than a little balance disorder I was left with no risidual problems. I also had TIA six months before my stroke. Now I have developed a toothache, a little headache on occasion and chirping in my right ear only. I just had a MRI which show my old injury as well a s a mild degree of periventricular small vessel white matter ischemic disease and a incidental right maxillary retention cyst which is small in size.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am a nearly 30 year old male. About 1 month ago I had symptoms that were diagnozed as a "TIA" (mini-stroke). All day long I had been suffering from moderate pain in my left arm. Then all of a sudden the pain spread up my shoulders to my right arm. It was more fatigue than true pain though...I would describe the pain more as numbness/discomfort. My face went somewhat numb, and my lips felt like I'd had novacane.
500374 tn?1210075013 As the brain absorbs the blood caused by the burst vessel, your mom will come back to herself. My husbands stroke was 10 months ago. One of his deficits was mild loss of short term memory. It comes and goes. Some times he would get confused about where he was at but all that is fine now. Just do memory games with your mom, buy memory game puzzles, do things that stimulate the brain. Get them brain cells connected again! Good luck to you and I hope your mom a speedy recovery!
Avatar n tn Oh I also wanted to ask, when you had a MRI or CT scan did it show that you had a TIA or did all your scans come back normal??
Avatar n tn He said the hole looked to be several millimeters in size. Information is conflicted in terms of whether a PFO should be closed for prevention of stroke/TIA. Also, any links to the other symptoms? So in sum, is it recommended a PFO be closed in situations like mine, or whether I should bump up the amount of aspirin I take and only consider closure if I have another TIA. I'd hate to have a major stroke, yet don't want to have a surgery that doesn't buy me much prevention.
Avatar n tn Hi, I can really relate, my husband had a mild left side of brain stroke, a year ago, nine days after cranial stents were placed in basilar and vertibrial arteries...Angers easily, frustrated, memory loss, dwells on what happen to him daily,depessed, he realizes the changes, but can't seem to help it...I have to kinda be careful not to upset him, now..His Uncle had a stroke and actually became very mean and combative he ended up in a nursing home.

Avatar n tn I've had a mild stroke and then I've had 3TIa's, is this something that is going to happen to me for the rest of my life
Avatar m tn The cardiac types of symptoms sound like a arrhythmia. Have you been tested for that? They first do a EKG then if negative they do a 24 hour halter monitor that wear. I have a benign one that sometimes makes my heart flutter and makes me cough. As for the dull headache, it may be a side effect of a medication you are on.
