I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.

Avatar n tn My doctor thinks it could be brain stem mini strokes. He also said it is possible these are signs of a future stroke (brain stem). Is this even possible?

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 was recently admitted to hospital with a suspected mini stroke. whilst there they gave me an ecg. and kept asking if i had any chest pain. i later read my notes and on top of the page was printed borderline left atrial abnormality, this was not discussed with me as they were concerned at the time about the diagnosis of a possible stroke which the tests came up inconclusive. can you tell me if i should be worried please.
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 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 n tn I have had one side of my face twitch for 3 weeks now, a friend has told me recently she had the same problem. Her end result was a mini-stroke.

Avatar n tn 8), waiting results of other bloods, Age 40, exercise moderate. They said it may be a mini stroke so not to drive for month. Feel Ok since except shoulder feels like it has carried a heavy bag. Was back a work 2 days later altho long trains due to having to catch train. Will see consultant again in a couple of days. Could it be anything else. I don't them to say mini-stroke without considering any other cause.
Avatar f tn Hi, it’s unlikely its stroke. It could be a bad dream. And everybody has these occasional stressful dreams. But if they occur repeatedly or are interfering with your sleep schedules, you can consult a sleep specialist. It could be a nightmare disorder. This can be assessed by a sleep questionnaire and therapy is based on the severity of symptoms. Best Regards.

Avatar f tn Neurologist saw added spots on my brain. With a diagnosis of me having mini strokes. I was admitted to hospital again 5/3/12 same symptoms occurring, dischared on 5/4/12, Dr. is not sure exactly when the extra spots on the brain occured, saying the recent symptoms I am having could have resulted from mini strokes/silent strokes I had throughout the year.

11452490 tn?1418747669 I think I had a mini stroke a few weeks ago. Just got results of MRI. I have a blockage of the Cartoid artery. Will have a cat scan soon. Do I have to worry if I drive?

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.
