1266422 tn?1270239216 Did you go to the ER and get a CAT scan for your strokes? My stroke was very much like a migraine, in fact I had two brain bleeds and I thought the first one was a migraine and treated it like one with migraine meds. During one of my MRI's of my noggin the Dr said she could tell from the MRI that I was a migraine sufferer.
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.
1474856 tn?1288289049 Transient Ischemic Attack Symptoms can include: numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.
Avatar n tn There have been a great many papers investigating the relationship between stroke and migraine and various studies have in fact demonstrated some degree of association between the two. From what I have encountered in the literature, the data does not establish causation (i.e. migraine causing stroke) but rather, a very weak correlation between the two. To date, the mechanism remains unclear, although there have been various theories in this regard.
Avatar m tn After some research on my own, I believe there could be two conditions that I suffered from, TIA (mini-stroke) or Migraine Aura. The syptoms are said to go away in a few hours or a day top, but I still felt the numbness and contant ringing in ears after 2-3 weeks. I got a referral to a neurologist in a public hospital on my third visit to the doc.
Avatar n tn but you do have to watch out and not take triptans and some other type of meds with these types of migraines or they might actually cause a stroke and you are supceptable to have a stroke or TIA with these migraines, but please, ask your husbands dr about these and look more into them.
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 n tn My doc said I had had a mini stroke!

Avatar f tn Last night I awoke with numbness on my right side and mild nausea and was concerned that I could be having a mini stroke instead of a migraine. I searched online for symptoms of a stroke and they mirror those of a migraine. Is there a way to differentiate between the two? Obviously, I don't want to run to the hospital every time I have a migraine but I would also not want to dismiss a more serious condition.
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 I know that I am experiencing ocular migraines--sometimes with pain following --sometimes not---the thing that bothers me is that when aura is gone I have an aching in my right arm and numbess in my hand that extends done to my pinky and ring fingers. I had a mini stroke (although I have now been told it was just a stroke because it shows up on an MRI??
Avatar n tn My GP originally thought I may have had a mini stroke and sent me to a neurologist who just asked me a series of questions and gave me what seemed like a sobriety test and ordered no other tests and diagnosed me with migraines. Since the headaches only occurred about once a year he thought that no further action was needed. The other day I experienced the same symptoms only for a very brief period followed by a mild headache behind my right eye.
Avatar n tn 8), waiting results of other bloods, Age 40, exercise moderate. They said it may be a mini stroke so not to drive for month. Feel Ok since except shoulder feels like it has carried a heavy bag. Was back a work 2 days later altho long trains due to having to catch train. Will see consultant again in a couple of days. Could it be anything else. I don't them to say mini-stroke without considering any other cause.

Avatar n tn even scarier, mini-stroke). After a huge workup of every system, I was found to have an ASD with an associated atrial septal aneurysm. I had this repaired minimally invasively at Johns Hopkins over a year ago and have not had a single "ophthalmic migraine" since. I've been now told that what I was having were strokes all along. I am so grateful for my doctors and so blessed that I didn't have a major stroke! Moral: If the diagnosis seems wrong.. FIGHT IT!!
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 ,speech slightly off. ws told Parathesis .I want to make sure I did not have mini stroke to prevent future....Report reads right frontal white matter, nonspecific. Differential diagnosis includes ischemic microvascular change, demyelination, CNS Lymes disease, migraine, and vasculitis,,,,Focus of T2Flair hyperintensity is seen in right frontal white matter anteriorly at level of centrum semiovale, meds Midrin .
Avatar m tn not diabetic but I was diagnosed as having a mini stroke Tia caused by having a migraine headache.My left side dropped with tingling and numbness, burr vision and slurred speech. My question is after all the years that has passed what was so different about this migraine that was so different?
Avatar n tn Especially in someone with risk factors of other mimickers such as stroke/TIA (mini stroke), or seizure. Depending on your age, seizure or ministroke can produce very similar symptoms. Headache however is uncommon in either one. In light of possible lupus or lupus diagnosis, vasculitis is a good possibility. As I mentioned earlier the gold standard for diagnosis of vasculitis if angiogram, some even had biopsy. At any rate treatment is with steroid.
