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 I also have a small amount of pressure behind my right eye and right side of the back of my head. When I lay down there is slight discomfort in my right ear but I lay on my left side. It hurts to use my right hand/arm because of the soreness. 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 m tn it had Beenough almost 5 years without a seizure I had begun to think I had beeten it given seizures are a thing that your brain learns and remembers how to do since the neurologist said the longer without the less it remembers I felt I was on the up side of the disorder. However in the last 5 years on an almost daily basis or at least multiple times weekly I have had auras when asking the Dr about these...
Avatar m tn In 2004 I had a retinal vein occlusion thrombosis in my right eye, I had laser treatment to stop it getting worse,which was successful.On 12th of December 2012 I was getting into bed and a grey shadow came from left to right across my left eye and I could not see for about 30 > 40 seconds in that eye and then my vision returned to normal. I had an eye test a couple of days later, I didn't tell the optition what had happened thinking he may have picked it up in the eye test.

Bruschi was lucky because he knew the warning signs TIA's or mini strokes and sought medical attention. He experienced arm weakness, face drooping and speech difficulties. https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=222690 to read his story.

Avatar f tn But i had symptoms of Bell’s Palsy .
Avatar m tn No warning whatsoever. With my heart attacks or mini stroke. Especially with the mini stroke. I was watching TV one evening and all of a sudden the vision in my right eye went. In an instant I could only see the bottom of everything with my right eye.
905378 tn?1244854365 It could also be a TIA. Here's what Google shows in an early listing ... Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) A TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but ... Unlike stroke, when a TIA is over, there's no injury to the brain I would mention it to the doctor. Carcinista could easily be correct also.
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, she had other problems with her eyes, so she didnt have the best eyesight to begin with. Then, the stroke stole alot of the eyesight she had left. The doctor said it might return, but when she went to several eye specialists, they said it would not return after a stroke. You will just have to wait and see if it improves.
Avatar f tn hi I'm in a bit of a state. this is saturday and on tuesday i was in bed with my lab top. i was feeling a bit strange when suddenly my hand and arm went nimb. at the same time mt boyfriend walked in and i felt wierd as i looked at him. i said my arm is numb and as i got out of bed my face also went numb. side of my nose and cheek and lip. i said to him clearly "god my face is numb" and then i panicked a bit and had to lire down.
Avatar m tn I find it hard to describe the sensation. It is almost like a head rush - or a chill or tingle - in my brain; and it is accompanied by memories that usually take a more linguistic form: I remember words being said or written, plus a little about the context. However, within what seems like milliseconds, it dissipates and I cannot remember what the words/memories were. The sensation doesn't happen often, but when it does, there is usually a cluster of them over a few-hour period.
Avatar f tn I was overheated and came indoors and sat down with a fan and I began to have swirley light patterns develope in the side of my right eye. I could see them when my eye was open and also when shut. it wasn't the same as the occassional fiber type line floater...it was consentrated on one side of my field of vision...like swirley wormie lites and lasted about 1/2 hour. Could this be a stroke warning sign?
Avatar n tn I'm glad your husband's BP is coming down. I am not a doctor, so I have no idea what could have happened. Maybe a mini-stroke? I just don't know, sorry. Was he on BP meds BEFORE this happened? What is he taking now? I'll keep him in my prayers...
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.
Avatar n tn or due to other eye problems I had prior to MRI? I still have stroke in my right face following the MRI test, and what could be done now? I appreciate your kind opinion on this matter please.
Avatar f tn m scheduled to get an ultrasound of the carotid over visual disturbances in my left eye. You might ask a doctor if a brain scan is right for you to make sure you didn't have a TIA or something. Your hormone levels are probably messed up re: the heavy period. If you are bleeding a certain amount of heaviness, they generally want you to get it checked out.
Avatar f tn Currently, I am undergoing testing for possible optic nerve problems in my left eye - About three months ago I started losing vision in my left eye. I am 59 years old and in good health otherwise, low blood pressure, no diabetes, although I am a light smoker. Could the numb lip have anything to do with the optic nerve?? What could be going on?
Avatar f tn t hurt leaning on the same side (left) when I woke up an hour later I could only see out of my right eye. This lasted just seconds possible 5. The sight came back pixelated I believe after moving position and having my head straight. My arm had pins and needles but I was leant on it. After some anxiety my husband said it was nothing but cut off circulation so I got up and got myself a heat pack for my still very sore neck.
Avatar f tn Often oxygen-rich blood cannot be supplied adequately to the brain, causing the symptoms of a mini stroke. In severe cases, increased pressure can cause the arteries in the brain to rupture and cause a hemorrhagic (bleed) stroke. All the best to your mom http://www.savingthebrain.
Avatar f tn Hi, this is my first post and I'm posting in desperation! I'm 38 years old and have for the past 19 years been diagnosed with multiple conditions (over 20) and multiple conflicting diagnosis. It seems that every few months I get more symptoms and a new diagnosis of a new condition, and the current suspicion is that I may optic neuritis and possibly MS.
2086874 tn?1332686494 I ws watching TV one evening and without any warning or symptoms I lost the vision in my right eye. It was plaque in the artery and is not reversible. A few months later though I had some flashes of light and lost the peripheral vision in that eye. (In the beginning it was just the vision in the top portion of my eye. I know it sounds weird, but different areas of the retina see different angles.) Did your vision return?
2086874 tn?1332686494 Thanks went to hospital today it was a TIA mini stroke more test on the way but thankyou x
