Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke ct scan


Avatar f tn hee immediately took me to emergancy where they took a million blood tests heart tests and a ct scan. nothing came up. i flew through all the tests. and they said it was not tia and no need for mri. i have low blood pressure and wonder was it low flow tia. my neck has been hurting me a lot recently too i wonder would that have anything to do with it. i'm very healthy no drink or smoke 46 years old. no history of ms or early stroke in family.
Avatar f tn But the first ct scan I had showed nothing it wasn't until the second ct scan that showed a tiny tiny bit and the doc said they almost missed it.
Avatar m tn they stated that my medicine levels were within therapeutic range but that I was okay sent me home three days later had a super bad headache my right eye was twitching like crazy and started to drooping also my tounge was still numb and felt weird called the neurologist she sent me to the ER to be checked for stroke symptoms, they did a CT scan and it stated this below do these findings meant some point I have had a stroke....
Avatar m tn 1 to 2 minutes and has yet to go away (now over a week). A CT scan was done and showed a right cerebellar infarct (1.2cm). 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.
Avatar n tn It is good that the initial diagnostic tests were normal. Stroke usually is seen in imaging studies such as CT scan or MRI. Other differentials of stroke that we can consider are migraine, hypoglycemia, electrolyte imbalance, infection or seizure. For proper diagnosis, direct evaluation and additional diagnostic tests may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted with your follow-up consultation. Best regards.
Avatar n tn   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 n tn Did they MRI your brain? After the mini-stroke, did they do a CT scan? Did they follow up with an MRA/MRV (MRI of blood vessels of your head)? Have they done a doppler of your carotid arteries?
Avatar n tn Husband woke up with dizziness, vertigo, vomiting at 3 AM last week. B/P 225/120 ER said he did not have a stroke ( according to CT scan.Can't do MRI due to stents which he got for a 95% blockage to his heart 4 yrs ago.) Cardiologist switched BP meds and B/P going down well on that now.He' still very fatigued, difficulty with spacial perception, walking etc...The Nuero Doc can't see him till May 1st. Any idea what's up with all of this and what kind of treatment we should pursue?
Avatar n tn They then sent me to the ER in the ambulance they found that my blood glucose level was low-never had an issue before. They gave me an Chest Xray, CT scan and blood work all came back normal but they decided to keep me for observation. The next morning I had an MRI with contrast again normal. A Nurologist then came and did a very quick assesment and sent me home with diagnois of occipital Nuralgia.
Avatar m tn They did tests, finally a CT scan. Revealed a history of ischemic episodes. TIAs? Not abolutely clear what happened. I started taking baby aspirin once a day. No incidents since that I know of.
Avatar f tn TIA is a mini stroke and you are right when you say that it could well bring on a full fledged stroke. Being a mini stroke it may or may not produce ischemic changes in the brain. However you definitely need to be careful. Please avoid all the risk factors for stroke like high BP, smoking, alcoholism, obesity and high cholesterol. Make sure your body weight is under control and exercise regularly. Avoid foods high in calories and salt.
Avatar n tn Mini stroke (TIA) represents temporary stroke warning symptoms. A stroke can be impairment of sensation, level of consciousness, balance, or voluntary motion caused by a rupture or obstruction of an artery in the brain. In short: a stroke is a brain attack. TIA is not a full-blown stroke, but mimics one as you suggest. An Electrocardiogram (EKG) to confirm a regular heart rate, blockage of electrical impulses through the heart, etc.
Avatar f tn however, after this seconded incident, I have weakness in the upper and lower extremities to the point of being on a walker. There was no change apparent via CT scan or MRI after either occurrence. Is it possible that I am having cerebral spasms? I have already been diagnosed with severe coronary spasms (I had to be shocked during one episode).
Avatar f tn Personally I would have though dizziness/nausea could be a TIA (mini stroke). It is unlikely that an MI would stop after 2 hours. I would explain your symptoms to a Doctor and have a CT scan of your head just to be on the safe side, especially as it runs in the family.
Avatar f tn If it has been four years already and it s till persists, you may benefit from further evaluation. Imaging studies such as CT scan and neurological examiantion are important. Identification of triggers and avoiding them may also help. Take care and best regards.
Avatar m tn I had that happen to me 3 times over 6 weeks just over a month ago. I was taking metaprolol betablocker over that period and then started carbimazole and weaned myself off the metaprolol. I am about to have RAI so will stop the carbimazole and am going back to the Doctor's tomorrow to see if he'll prescribe a different betablocker for me.
Avatar f tn Babygirl should seek medical attention. This sounds more like a Tia "mini stroke" than a seisure, but only medical experts can really tell. It's best to have it checked out.
524338 tn?1212326834 My wife rushed me straight to hospital and they did a CT scan but it showed no signs of a bleed. I left the hospital that night around midnight. I seemed ok the next day but on the Thursday started getting dizziness and an underlying shakyness or tremor which seemed to start in my chest and caused my hands to shake a bit (more so in the left hand) This went on through Friday.
Avatar n tn His choose to tell me that added extra stress causing my blood pressure to elevate and me making another urgernt care visit. If I had a mini stroke should I have not had a scan right away.
Avatar f tn He told me to have bp rechecked with visit to family doc in 7 days. I asked about the ct scan and he said a ct scan is like 1970 black and white tv. The MRI was normal and he wasn't sure what my symptoms were but I could go home no need to stay.I probably had a TIA. I came home and am still having severe balance problems, can't ride in car..
383943 tn?1217722721 hi, i am a 35 year old female my doctor says i am having mini strokes,my symptoms are severe short term memory loss loss of balance fatigue confusion vision loss in one eye and also blockage behind my eye.Was any of your symptoms the same as mine?
Avatar f tn My doctor said I had a mini stroke. I had a cat scan and blood test that showed a lesion on my brain. My doctor the had me get an MRI brain scan which his nurse said came back normal. Then why do I still feel like my brain has been scrambled ,and I just don't feel good overall?
Avatar n tn As the CT scan report was normal and since there was no MRI scan facility in the hospital the patient was not shifted immediately to another one. The doctor of the hospital to which he was later admitted mentioned about the delay. that is why i felt so. Do you think that the CT scan report which mentioned "brain-stem normal" was correct?
Avatar f tn Would it be stupid to ask for another CT scan? I just want to know what happened and if it was a stroke or a TIA or whatever I need to know so I can take the steps to make sure this doesn't happen again.

Avatar f tn Hi there, I was discharged from a stroke unit in the uk yesterday after having a mini ischaemic stroke which I was frombolised for. When I was first admitted my troponin levels were at 365, dropping to 190 over a 4 day period. I'm unsure of the level now but I imagine it's lower. But I know healthy people are supposed to have no reading. I'm a 29 year old, otherwise healthy female - no drinking smoking or drugs. No history of strokes in the family.
