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.
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 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 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 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 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 did she have a mini stroke. what can they do to prevent her from getting it again. This discussion is related to <a href=''>Migraines/TIA's</a>.
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?
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 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?

Avatar f tn It took her 4 months to get better which was fantastic but she had to go back for another angiogram. After this she had another mini stroke.. before all these she develops a migraine and then the stroke symptoms come on.. No doctor understand what this is, or how to prevent it. We pray that someone out there can relate to this and we can find a preventive before she gets sick again. Thankyou.
Avatar n tn He was hospitalized that day for possible stroke. He spent 4 days in hospital they performed in ER and hospital - brain scan, chest x-ray, blood cultures and other blood test, spinal tap, mri/mra, eeg, ultrasound on carotids, ultrasound and doppler of heart. All test came back negative/normal. Dr's said no signs of Stroke but having stroke like symptoms. Since being released from hospital has had a 24 hr eeg done, which was also normal, more blood work.
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 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.
1582614 tn?1310324908 My sister had quad heart bypass Jan 11th and just went back to work on monday and started rehab. Today I got a call and she's in the hospital she has had a mini stroke and they are keeping her overnight. How serious is this? I am in Pa and she is in NJ and I haven't heard much more than that. I have been trying to find information and can't find anything. Help I am so worried.
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 He did a thorough examination and sent me to x-ray. He says the xray show a paralyzed diphragm. I had a mini-stroke in mid July, 2008 and thought that I had no lasting effects from the stroke. He says this could hav been caused by the stroke or several other things. I had mini-gastric bypass surgery in 2000, He said, nothing could be done for the paralysis, unless it was from the stroke and it regenerated on its own.
Avatar f tn My mother was diagnosed as having a TIA (mini-stroke) 5 days ago. Today (while in the hospital) she seems worse than when she went in. What would cause this? The MRI completed yesterday showed no changes, but she is having more trouble understanding, speaking, and walking. Is this because of lack of rehab or did she possibly have another stroke and they just haven't figured it out yet? I am worried sick. She just got out of the hospital 2 mo.
Avatar n tn My 86 year old mother just came out of the hospital on Friday after being in for ten days due to a "mini-stroke" (TIA). It was the fifth one she has had since suffering a major stroke in 2007. Tonight she started bleeding; not heavy but enough to saturate her Depends underwear. I have noticed some very light spotting in the past, but only about once a month. The cause of this is puzzling me. I guess the doctor needs to be seen. Any advice?
Avatar n tn m a 76 year old lady who recently spent a week in the hospital because of episodes of TIA. After a MRI a CT scan, EEG, and ECG, they told me I had a mild stroke. While in the hospital they put me in heparin drip to thin my blood to start with, then they put me on plavix. I have episodes of bad sharp pain around my left temple coming down sometimes to may face, and from time to time especially after i take my BP meds with the plavix I get nauseated and light headed.
