Avatar m tn and I have blurred vision. When can I expect these symptoms to go away?
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Transients ischemic attack (TIA), according to the American Heart Association, is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but with no lasting damage or injury to the brain. TIAs are important in predicting if a stroke will occur rather than when one will happen. In about half the cases, the stroke occurs within one year of the TIA.
Avatar n tn It is afternoon and my vision is extremely (unusual) blurred. I do not feel any pressure or pain, just really bad vision (I wear reading glasses only). I am not able to see clearly and does not seem to be getting any better. What do you think the problem is? I have had sinusitus in the past, but nothing as serious as problems with my vision. Can you offer any remedies, suggestions or ideas? For a more qualified answer, do you have any questions for me? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I know something was happening but just not sure what. Some people said it could be a mini stroke. Has anyone dealt with this before?
Avatar n tn The symptoms are usually head ache,facial pain,nasal congestion.It does not cause blurred vision/speech or numbness.Maybe your severe head ache could have given the impresson of blurred vision but not to your other complaints. Since you are only 22 years of aon't seem to be a candidate for either TIA/stroke.Unless as a rare case you have had a TIA?
Avatar n tn If your arm feels weak or numb, this could certainly be a sign of stroke or mini-stroke and you should seek emergency medical attention. Certain tachycardias do predispose to stroke. I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back. Information provided here is for general purposes only. Specific questions should be addressed to your own doctor.
Avatar m tn was woke up with hot feeling blurred vision and dizzy, checked blood sugar it was 62. ate a cup of mini wheat cereal.
Avatar n tn My vision gets blurred and I feel light headed or dizzy. Sometimes my vision randomly gets blurred, without the headache. I'm walking, sitting or doing nothing and it comes out of nowhere. I just can't see. I'm 24 years old...too young for anything serious?? I don't want to go back to the doctor if it's just part of the headaches or the flu or something that isn't important. What should I do????
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 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).
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 m tn The same thing happened to me yesterday. Driving on the freeway and out of nowhere my vision became blurred. I tried quickly shaking my head to snap out of it but no luck. I pulled to the side of the road and continued to shake my head and open & shut my eyes but my vision was still blurry. It felt nore like it was cross eyed than blurry. I covered one eye at a time to see if it was a problem with one or the other. Each time i covered an eye i was able to see clearly ...
Avatar n tn I had a stroke in January of this year. I did not have the typical vision problem suffered by stroke victims. My vision became "blurred". In March I went to the opthomologist for a vision check and received a new rx for my lenses. This seemed to have worked as I was able to read again. In June my vison became "blurred" again as it was right after the stroke. Another visit to the opthomologist as well as an optician resulted in another rx for my lenses. Trifocals.
Avatar m tn Do others suggest TIA, stroke or Bell's palsy as the cause? Have there been any tests on which some of the doctors are basing their myasthenia gravis diagnosis on? From what I can see, myasthenia gravis is a problem with the immune system producing anti-bodies that attack one's own body, but with your father's history of stroke, I wonder if he couldn't have suffered a kind of mini-stroke?
Avatar m tn Could he have had a mini-stroke? He never said it was just one side. He said it was his whole body. He also said it lasted like seconds or minutes not long. He didn't slur his speech or have severe headache before hand. But his brain is not right he says. I believe him when he said his head is off and not clear. I don't know if anyone else has had mild symptoms with a TIA and not the typical symptoms (one sided, blurred vision or speech etc). Any thoughts??
7412561 tn?1390729433 It was like his vision was blurred. I took control of the steering wheel and guided the car into the hard shoulder, he was trying to slow down and brake but this seemed to take ages, he knew what he had to do but body wasn't responding quick enough, afterwards he had no memory of what happened. This episode terrified me and i would love to know what form of epilepsy this is and how can we prevent it?

1210493 tn?1527851309 I just posted Friday that I had received a positive initial test for Hep C antibody...despite alt leves over 1300 a few days ago (Thursday of this past week) I have felt fairly good...a little nauseous but not bad. Today however I am having blurred vision (normally 20/20)...I haven't experienced this before---is this a normal side effect of high liver enzymes? Should I be concerned???

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 f tn However, the fatigue is very bad, and I am having a hard time reading as well due to very blurred vision. Is this typical, or perhaps better stated, is this something others have experienced? What OTC medication has helped? So far the meds I have taken help alleviate the congestion but I have a feeling they may be aggravating the fatigue and blurred vision.
