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.
889293 tn?1241085124 Am now due to have MRI today. Consultant has said that if MRI shows damage then he is sure that I have suffered mini-stroke, but if not then its stress! Is it likely that the MRI will show something that the CT hasn't? (CT done 2 weeks after last episode MRI 5 weeks later). Also if the MRI does come back clear, should I just accept stress as the reason behind my sudden visual loss and numbness/heavyness etc in my leg?
Avatar f tn I think it means since you have had a mini stroke(s) you are at risk for a stroke! TIA's temporarily interrupt the blood flow to certain parts of the brain but doesn't destroy brain cells or cause permanent damage. I would seek out advice from your PCP. If you are having any symptoms of a TIA go to ED immediately or call 911!!!!!!! I pray you never have a full blown stroke!! Take care!!!!
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 f tn spinal tap, myelogram, ct scan, mini stroke TIA
Avatar m tn Could it be a stroke? Those are the symptoms as far as I am aware? You should see the doctor to be safe.
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 n tn s a stroke you had which does result in permanent damage. I think they need to do a scan to evaluate if there has been any damage and give the appropriate medication and support.
Avatar m tn I have similar symptoms as described above. Had a mini-stroke. About two weeks later, my hand falls asleep for no reason at all for about one or two minutes. The question is whether this is a sihn of further damage in the brain or a common after-stroke symptom. I am going to PT for my weak leg - I will ask them about my hand as well.

Avatar n tn Now im kind of worried that I had a mini stroke. I was not able to make a complete sentence at all and my head was in severee pain. Am I worrying to much and just had a panic attack that was so intense it messed up my motor skills, or did something else happen?
Avatar n tn She recently had a CT scan to check for stroke damage and has been told she has severe vascular disease causing mini strokes (possibly?) - but can the symptoms include shaking? We have mentioned to Dr's that her right hand sometimes shakes, now her right leg and the other day her whole body shook whilst standing up nearly causing her to fall. It passes after a short time.
Avatar n tn It may be a TIA (mini-stroke) that you're experiencing or it could be nerve damage. Possibly carpal tunnel. That's just a total guess since I am not a doctor. Whatever it is you should consult a doctor.
Avatar n tn I have been gettign sudden migraines here and there, i just try to ignore it, but I'm gettign sick of the continuos tighting numbness on the right sdie fo my head and ear area. I've been having weakness in my left arm that comes and go for while now. Just recently, my left arm had a weird tingly feeling from my shoulders down to my arms and fingers that feels like its pulling from one side along with my right side head having pressure or tension pressure.
Avatar m tn I am 60 years old and i good healh generally. Had a mini stroke 7 years ago (was smoker) and have been Vegan for 6 years.

Avatar m tn Hi, I was just using the computer (playing games) on a Saturday at home (for arnd 4 hours) and had a sudden electric shock through my brain. Wasn't on any medications then. Felt dizzy and numb in the face, hand and leg only on the left side immediatedly after (no headaches). There was this contant ringing in my left ear as well. I was feeling terrible and took a nap after which I woke up a few hours later, unable to walk or drag myself off the bed.
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 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 n tn My husband had an Acute CVA August 2002 then became addicted to percocet. Has been in rehab and I think drug free for approx. 2 weeks. Was put on Elavil to help sleep insomnia at that time. Quit taking it and this morning says he doesn't feel right. Thinks he might have had a mini stroke. Right arm doesn't feel right and says speech is different. How do I know if this is Elavil related? Should I call doctor? Will a C-Scan tell me if a mini stroke has occurred?
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.
Avatar f tn Is it possible that without me realizing it that I may have had a mini stroke and not know it or am I over reacting? Since then my blood pressure has been 150/90.
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.
