1474856 tn?1288289049 Transient Ischemic Attack Symptoms can include: numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.
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 m tn My question is, does that sound like a mini-stroke to you? If so, what is the possibility of a major stroke. Thank You.
1698676 tn?1306857829 Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! I am sorry to hear about your father. Either he suffered another mini stroke or he is still reeling from the previous stroke. It can also be post stroke Alzheimer's pr Parkinson's disease. Another possibility is restless leg syndrome. I suggest you re-consult his neurologist and get this assessed. He may need an adjustment in the medication and further tests to diagnose the cause. A MRI should be done. Take care!

Avatar n tn t had a response on my first question concerning symptoms of a possible mini stroke or withdrawal symptoms from precocet or elavil. Should I take my husband to doctor - his office does not open until 9:00 am my time.
2173122 tn?1337363457 I am a diabetic (type 2) and already watch my weight and take Metformin but only became diabetic a year ago. Now this TIA stroke. I am not a health care professional. Hopefully we will have some others with more experience comment on this post. I am still recovering from it but everything I have read says I should have already recovered from it but after 5 days now, I'm just starting to get my balance back and strength in my left side, but it seems to come and go.
Avatar n tn I just got out of the hospital after suffering a few mini strokes. I was released after 3 days and doctors are still confused. I have mini stroke or seizure? as my dx. They released with with aspirin and a pat on the back. First day my arm went linp and I went to call for help my mouth would not move and my speech was slurred, it only lasted a minute. 2nd day, I went to yell at my dog for stealing food and my left leg went limp and again my speech slurred.
Avatar n tn This would not be a mini stroke.The definition of a TIA is that symptons of the stroke disappear after 24 hours. So I would have him go back to the doctor and get a scan of his brain since it seems some memory was affected. With therapy and neuroplasticity he should be able to get better.Make sure he gets information on how to prevent a second stroke from happening.
Avatar n tn But I am trying to find out what kind of Dr I need to go to now or even if they can tell if it was a stroke 6 weeks after. I still have the stutter and forgetfullness. I also normally have low BP like 120/60 pulse rate normally around 70. This day my BP was 160/102 amd pulse was 150-170. I need help too if you come up with anything.
6359965 tn?1393488636 I had a mini stroke behind my right eye now I have a headache all the time is this normal?I had a carotid endarterectomy on the right side of my neck dec 20th 2013 ,Feb 18 2014 started having problems with my right eye.I went to the eye dr and he sent me to my dr that did the carotid endarterectomy and he said it was a mini stroke.I have like a gray fog over my eye all the time and like northern lights in the corner.My head hurts bad sometimes and I get nauseated.
Avatar f tn t think a thing about it until I told my husband last night and he said it might have been a mini stroke. My mother (deceased) had experienced these in the past and she had severe heart problems that the doctors said may have caused the strokes. I looked up the symptoms, but I only really had numbness in my face and a slight pain over my eye. Could this have been a mini stroke? Should I see a doctor now even though I have no symptoms? Thank you.
Avatar f tn While prognosis may not be excellent with haemorrhagic stroke, your doctor is correct. Deterioration after initial progression could indicate another stroke/ mini stroke, issues with microcirculation or other neurological conditions. I would suggest considering a review with his treating neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn It took her 4 months to get better which was fantastic but she had to go back for another angiogram. After this she had another mini stroke.. before all these she develops a migraine and then the stroke symptoms come on.. No doctor understand what this is, or how to prevent it. We pray that someone out there can relate to this and we can find a preventive before she gets sick again. Thankyou.
Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
Avatar m tn I was told it was a possible mini stroke. Then an MRI was done and was told I have multiple infarctions on the brain moreso on the right than the left. It states that I have chronic microvascular disease of the brain and am to see a neurologist this week to determin if it actually was a mini stroke. I am also told I have post concussive syndrome, causing my dizziness and fatigue. Can the impact of the accident cause a mini stroke if I have microvascular disease?
Avatar f tn I had pipeline stent with coiling due to an 8.5mm unruptured aneurysm on the right ICA last 11 January 2011. Returned to hospital afterwards due to TIA symptoms and was given Lipitor as cholesterol level was borderline and given just to make sure that it is not causing the "mini-stroke". I have been given Plavix and aspirin from the onset and I am still on it. I have had my follow-up check up on the 11th March with the neurointerventional radiologist and asked a lot of questions.
Avatar m tn This last time they THINK she may be experiencing mini seizures ruling out mini strokes. Something is NOT right here. My question is, now where do we turn? She's been to one of the best hospitals in Arizona, Saint Joe, and nothing is wrong? Something is wrong and we need some answers. HELP!
1582614 tn?1310324908 My sister had quad heart bypass Jan 11th and just went back to work on monday and started rehab. Today I got a call and she's in the hospital she has had a mini stroke and they are keeping her overnight. How serious is this? I am in Pa and she is in NJ and I haven't heard much more than that.
