Mini stroke information

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke information


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 n tn my da suffered a mini stroke 2 days ago. he seems alomst the same except for the short ter memory loss. is this normal? and will it go away? what can i do?
Avatar n tn Hi. What type of "mini stroke" did the person have? Was the event a transient ischemic attack (TIA)? The Aerospace Medical Association ( is an international recognized authority with expertise in providing guidelines regarding traveling for persons with medical conditions.
Avatar f tn I'm just wondering if he may be the cause to the numbness or if it really could be stroke related. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I do know that I should be seeing a Dr for this but I am scared out of my skin to do just that. Please help me to ease my mind a bit.
Avatar n tn If it was a TIA, it would be a mini-stroke which is often a warning sign that you may be headed for a larger stroke. Only your doctor could check for that. I'm not sure which tests they would do. I know they can look into your eyes to check for pinpoint hemorrhages. Since you're on Warfarin, do you have your blood checked regularly (your INR)? That should be monitored too so your blood is the right. . . . consistency I guess you'd call it. I lost the sight in one eye a couple years ago.
481864 tn?1208328209 G'day, My dad had a mini stroke on Sunday, basically he had numbness in his body. The GP he saw within an hour or two of onset said he had experienced a 'ministroke'. He was walking with a limp on the way to the doctor but was walking well when he left. He later felt dizzy and nauseous. A day later he was taken to another doctor who also confirmed that he suffered a 'mini stroke' and did a quick blod test to determine a very high cholesterol level. He has been given medication to treat this.
Avatar n tn Does this mean I am going to have a full blown stroke? Is there anything to be done to prevent it? I feel like a time bomb. I would really so appreciate the information. Thanks so much.
Avatar n tn On Sept 20 had my second cryptogenic stroke (1st one approx 15 yrs ago) and have PFO and ASA. Second mini stroke was in the right posterior frontal parietal junction cortex 4mm in diameter. Neurologically, I have postural instability (per the neurologist) with the only explanation that this could be related to my left leg weakness from the L4-L5 fusion surgery in 2006. Question: I am concerned about being on Warafin and my instability.
Avatar f tn Continued consumption of large amounts of alcohol increases blood pressure, which is a primary risk factor for stroke. My husband had 3 TIAs (mini-strokes) at age 40. His bp before that was 180/120. His dr prescribed meds, and they only brought it down to 160/100-110. He quit drinking finally after a violent incident (or told me he quit, actually was still sneaking it occassionally but at a much lower level) and his bp dropped to 110/60.
Avatar f tn htm was very informative and explained a lot about what a stroke is and why blood sugars rise at the time of a stroke.
500374 tn?1210075013 I didn't have a brainstem stroke, but I did have a stroke and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? Also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.
Avatar n tn Over xmas he went blind in his left eye and the eye doctor said he may have had a mini stroke. He thought it was due to the tumor that was remaining. He seen his neurologist and he said it wasnt the cause. They ran all kinds of test from blood work, mri, cat scan and the artery check. And we aare waiting for the artery check results. The doctors could not find anything on the ct and mri. Last night he was having eye pain and called 911.
Avatar f tn They do a cat scan and its OK, I have quit taking some of the meds I have been on, I still get these seizures, the first one was really bad as I thought I was having a stroke and this was it, I was going to die, the 2nd one was bad and the past 10 or so I usually can catch when it starts with the numbness in my legs. I have been searching for symptoms for right temporal lobe lesions, 3 yrs ago an MRI found these lesions.
Avatar n tn They did a MRI on his brain which showed he had a mild stroke, which effects the part of his brain that controls balance. He has not had his follow-up appt. with the 2nd neurologist, but he said it probably occured during surgery. Why wouldn't the heart specialist suspect a stroke? What kind of therapy, if any may help him? Or medications? He also has experienced chest pain, since July. What kind of test would help in finding out where the pain is coming from?
1582614 tn?1310328508 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 n tn I cannot give you a clinical diagnosis over the internet, and the information you provide is limited. On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
Avatar n tn My mum recently had a mild stroke (or TIA) and was in hospital for 4 days. During this time she hardly saw a doctor! On the last day, she was told she would see an Occupational Therapist before she left who would tell her what kind of things she could do to gradually get back to 'normal'. This did not happen. Three weeks later, we are having to rely on internet and guess work for rehab as the doctors have been useless.
Avatar f tn My mother, who is 57 and takes good care of her health, suffered a stroke two days ago and is in the hospital as we speak. The stroke occured in her brain stem and the top/side of her head. Through an MRI and a certain procedure I forget the name of, the doctors were able to determine the reason for the stroke on the top/side of her head, which was blockage, i believe, of the vein.
Avatar f tn affected the part of the brain that processes information....he has had a series of mini strokes since. They are talking about discharging him on Friday, but to who?? I know I have given him hope by supporting him but no-one else is there...he only has a sister in Cape Town...our relationship is complex and has been abusive and I am trying to find my own life back and now this.
Avatar n tn Last January, 2006, I had a mini stroke. I was 36 years old. I recovered quickly and there has been no side effects. I was taking birth control pills and so the dr.'s say that must be the cause. They can find no other reason for it. I now take 1 aspirin daily. I have 1 son who is 3 and we are wondering about another pregnancy. I'm terrified! My neurologist and obgyn say it would be low risk for another mini stroke. I feel I was probably "no risk" this time last year but it happened.
Avatar n tn hi i had tia or mini stroke july 5. my speech were slurred and vision blurry. i have recovered well except my speech is somewhat off. my doctor said i will be on coumadin for six months. he started me out with a high dose but not i'm down to 2mg. i just try to be careful and know that if anything else happen that its in our heavenly Fathers hand.
Avatar n tn I am 2 years post dissection with pseudoaneurysm (no stroke--just mini strokes) and no healing. I have 5 year old twins and my husband and I would really like to have another. My symptoms are mostly under control but doctors seem unsure of the risk. I had preclampsia with the twins at 36 weeks and delivered via c-section at 37 weeks.
Avatar n tn Unlike everybody else here, I am the husband and my wife had a TIA (mini stroke) in June 2009. The reasons behind the stroke to this day have never been answered. The doctors initially tried every test (apart from the TEE - transesophogeal echocardiogram). No answers were found. The background of events behind the stroke are what we truly believe hold the answer to the event itself.
Avatar n tn My 55 yr old mother had a "massive" hemorrhagic stroke Feb. 18/05. The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down.
