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.

The doctors could not find anything on the ct and mri. Last night he was having eye pain and called 911.

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.

Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
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.
