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.

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 said I needed to call my dr right away because it sounds like I may have had a mini stroke or brain bleed causing the sleepiness , I am calling my dr but could this be it?
Avatar m tn My question is, does that sound like a mini-stroke to you? If so, what is the possibility of a major stroke. Thank You.
Avatar f tn I am 38 and about a week ago had a mini stroke in my right occipital lobe. At 27 I had a stroke in my left occipiptal lobe. I was told the later stroke was caused my hyperextending my neck while water sking (and falling into the wake) I have been in the hospital with this recent stroke and have had EVERY test run and the doctors are shaking their heads as all is coming out normal. I need to know why this has happened to me..
Avatar n tn I just got out of the hospital after suffering a few mini strokes. I was released after 3 days and doctors are still confused. I have mini stroke or seizure? as my dx. They released with with aspirin and a pat on the back. First day my arm went linp and I went to call for help my mouth would not move and my speech was slurred, it only lasted a minute. 2nd day, I went to yell at my dog for stealing food and my left leg went limp and again my speech slurred.
Avatar n tn Can you have a stroke and go to the hospital and then not be shown on a MRI.
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 n tn My mother recently suffered an acute stroke after a mini-stroke two weeks earlier. While at the hospital the neurologist told our family that had they known she had atrial fibrillation in her first mini-stroke, they would have prescribed coumadin and the acute stroke would likely have been prevented. I was told by a geriatric nurse practitioner friend that they should have done the Holter EKG rather than the short EKG as it would have detected the atrial fibrillation.
Avatar n tn my husband was in hospital with a possible "mini stroke" He is scheduled to have a MRA in two days. He is still a little "off" in his balance. One dr. thought it was Vertigo.. But he didnt have all the signs. How can we tell if he might be having another stroke?
Avatar n tn happened and my body gave way and i feel onto the floor at her feet, at this stage i couldnt move my left leg arm and my face had dropped (this was what was witnessed by all there) they rushed me to hospital due to everyone thinking it was a stroke, i ended up sitting in the waiting room cause it was busy and then after about three hours it came right and i went home feeling shaken and weak...
639965 tn?1228344380 A TIA is a mini stroke basically and it makes me wonder if it was more than a mini stroke even though they said it wasn't.. because I still have some of the symtoms.. my eye doctor told me that my vision has gotten worse.. I told the PA that and he said my eye doctor was full of **** and the TIA and the vision problems can't be related..
Avatar f tn I then saw my pcp who told me that I could have been experiencing a severe anxiety attack and that he doubted it was a TIA (mini stroke) and even if it was the results would not have shown on the MRI or CSCAN because I waited too long in between my fingers not being able to move and going to the hospital. Basically I went to the ER five days later. They do not know how to explain to me what happened and I really would like to hear if anyone else has experienced something similar?
Avatar n tn ve had same problem for 16 yrs this week I had and echo with bubble done on my heart they found a hole in my heart which is normal in 25 percent of population but for me the pfo or hole in my heart causes tia or mini stroke there is a procedure that can fix hole but not approved by fda so not approved
Avatar f tn My mother had a massive hemmoraghic stroke march 3 2008 and had a mini stroke Feb 10th 2009. Her mini was not bad only affected her speech a little. The nuerologist did a scan of the brian to see how the prognosis of the brain. Her brain still has a blot clot the size of a baseball. My question is if after a year there has been no change what so ever in the size of the clot. What happens to that blood clot? or is her brain slowly being deteroiting?

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 had a mild stroke on Aug. 9, and was in the hospital 3 days...since that time I have had trouble with my emotions. I am doing well and have recovered physically. I feel like my memory isn't as sharp, but am dealing with it. I sometimes forget what med. I have taken, that bothers me, but am trying to pay more attention to that. I sometimes feel alone in this, nobody seems to understand quite how I feel. I feel my emotions are rollercoastering somedays.. It has been 4 mos.
Avatar m tn they are the worste) 4 years after the initial stroke? with out having another stroke, or a TIA, mini-stroke? and If it is possible, what recourse do I have left? Physical activity isnt doing it any more. Interupts my sleep like you dont even know...Ill be so dayum tired, but my leg aches so bad.
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 f tn t know what to believe anymore. I need another opinion. Could a hospital miss a mini stroke? If she cant control her leg as much and it's numb is that enough symptoms to say it's a mini stroke? Also in the hospital they prescribed her Methylprednisolone, after taking for one day, today suddenly her right cheek got red and hot, while the left one remained cold, and her blood pressure jumped to 169/85. She took a pill and it went away.
