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 n tn My doc said I had had a mini stroke!
Avatar n tn What could cause a mini stroke in your eye?
Avatar f tn I had a small stroke March 15. I have no problems with BP, cholesterol or diabetes. An echocardiogram of my heart showed it to be perfectly normal. I have minor weakness on my right arm and leg, but no pain, headaches or other symptoms. I often do not feel like eating, especially my former favorite foods and sometimes feel a slight queasiness. I am presently taking one Lipitor and one aspirin per day.
Avatar n tn and as far as i am aware small vessel disease (SVD) is associated with mini strokes, and conditions like Diabetes and high blood pressure are the more common causes of SVD but they probably wouldn't be the only causes and this would be what the neurologist needs to work out with further tests. Cheers........
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 f tn spinal tap, myelogram, ct scan, mini stroke TIA
Avatar n tn Either it was a case of transient ischemic attack or a bad case of panic attack. TIA or transient ischemic attack is a mini stroke that happens when the blood supply to brain is temporarily cut off. The episodes last for a maximum of 24 hours and then resolve or a new symptom starts.

Avatar f tn i was diagnosed with coronary artery desease in january 2010 and in may i had two mini strokes , in june test results showed my right internal carotid artery was 50% blocked and my left internal carotid artery was 50% to 60% blocked.
Avatar n tn I am a 45 yr old female. I had a mini stroke 2 years ago. Don't know the cause. Also diagnosed with diabetes. High blood pressure. Since stroke I have been having irregular periods. Usually about every 3 weeks, used to be very heavy now very light. Lasting about 10 days. In last year right before my period my ears hurt and I get light-headed and nauseated. Have had teeth and ears checked, they are o.k. On meds for diabetes, blood pressure,anxiety and stroke for 2 years.
Avatar n tn Last September he suffered a transient ischemic attack (or a mini-stroke). A few months ago he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and has just completed radiation treatment. He also has high blood pressure. He's 68 years old and lives by himself, and since the mini-stroke he just seems not to care about anything. His house is a disaster, all he seems to want to do is eat and sleep. He has not altered his diet or lifestyle to aid in his recovery.
Avatar m tn I have had a speech problem, which I attribute to a mini stroke as diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. They also diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. Since it didn't clear up, I sought a Speech Therapist who diagnosed me with Dysarthria. I have not received any treatment yet. I have had the condition for several months. I used to fall a lot, but I have learned to be very careful. My vision is blurry. I also have Diabetes, type II.
Avatar n tn Episode in late September that was diagnosed as the first TIA (mini-stroke). During exams a CTscan was done that was read a couple of times and discovered Laryngocele (both sides). Surgery is being planned, once the cause of the now 12 TIAs is determined. Another side effect and/or cause of the TIAs could possibly be Diabetes. (Doctors seem undecided to diagnose this, though doing all further exams as if has been diagnosed). During 4th TIA, blood sugar measured 221.
Avatar n tn I have had Type 2 Diabetes for nearly 20 years. I had a mini stroke in 1999, and recovered quite well, and have experienced a gradual weakening of my body. One year ago, the only MRI I have had showed some brain stem damage. Recently my left hand has lost mobility. But last week, my legs started buckling and I am finding it difficult to walk, even with a walker.
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.
713582 tn?1298262321 My dear Oma had a mini stroke this morning.
Avatar n tn but you do have to watch out and not take triptans and some other type of meds with these types of migraines or they might actually cause a stroke and you are supceptable to have a stroke or TIA with these migraines, but please, ask your husbands dr about these and look more into them.
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.
