Avatar f tn Being that you have a history of HTN (high blood pressure), you are definitely at high risk for a TIA/Stroke. You could have possibly have had a TIA/Stroke. Secondly, with a blood pressure that elevated and symptoms, please go immediately to the ER; don't try to treat yourself at home; bad idea.
Avatar f tn and they said it was not tia and no need for mri. i have low blood pressure and wonder was it low flow tia. my neck has been hurting me a lot recently too i wonder would that have anything to do with it. i'm very healthy no drink or smoke 46 years old. no history of ms or early stroke in family. i'm baffled and i just went home without asprin or any other drug. i would like an mri and wonder if that would show anything.
Avatar n tn No matter which way you look at it, the sudden difficulty in speech must have been a sudden drop in oxygen to the brain. Maybe it was what is termed as a mini stroke which you usually quickly recover from. I would question your medication, perhaps you need something to lower the risk of strokes until they discover the problem. Have the carotid arteries in your neck been checked over?
Avatar n tn My Father, who has had extremely low blood pressure all his life, was just admitted to the hospital suffering from mini-strokes and high blood pressure. I'm especially interested in learning what mini-strokes are. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. d. = As you'll see in the explanation below, "mini-strokes" is one of my least favorite terms because it is vague and can be used to describe two entirely different things.
Avatar f tn During a stress response, blood vessels constrict and the blood pressure goes up. 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 n tn When the paramedics got there her blood pressure was high. There was a second episode within the hour at the hospital. Blood work was taken which showed low phosphates and low potassium. EEG and MRI with apparently no unusual findings. They put her on keppra and told her not to drive for three months. Is it possible she had a mini stroke or other heart disease? She has come to the conclusion that she has had a few of these in the past in her sleep. The last time she bit her tongue.
Avatar n tn t seem to be the case, you could have made a wrong movement or something like that. High blood pressure will cause issues with the heart, but if you have a mini stroke you would most likely know. I am not a professional but I am guessing they put you on some type of pill for the blood vessel. Just do what they tell you and if your problems continue then you should tell your doctor what you think and he will let you know his professional opinion.
Avatar n tn What could cause a mini stroke in your eye?
Avatar n tn Hello dear, You probably had a Transient Ischaemic Attack or a mini stroke caused by the temporary disturbance of blood supply to a restricted area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that usually persists for less than 24 hours.The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision ; difficulty speaking (aphasia); weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis); and numbness or tingling (paresthesia), usually on one side of the body.
Avatar n tn It passed after about one minute and a I had just a little nausea for another five minutes. I am 52 years old, high blood pressure and diabetes type II that is under control.
Avatar n tn She is currently in the hospital and the doctors have no idea why she has low blood pressure. They will check her pressure and it will be fine and then she will try to stand and feel dizzy. When they check it again her blood pressure has dropped. Not to mention since the stroke she is a little off mentally. We do not know if this is just old age, effects of the stroke or now a new problem. She has always had high blood pressure. Thanks for reading this letter.
Avatar f tn I wish I can record my blood pressure 3 times a day. My mother had a massive stroke and passed away, so I like to keep close eye on my blood pressure.
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 Yes, TIA can make your whole body go numb. It can also be due to high blood pressure. Low iron (anemia) and hypoglycemia too can cause a vasovagal attack. It can be low Vit B12. This is not something that can either be ignored or diagnosed on net. Please consult your PCP to start with. Hope this helps. Take care!
