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 n tn My doc said I had had a mini stroke!
Avatar m tn although she seemed to have suffered a mini stroke (although doctors did not say this exactly), is there anything we can do to make sure this does not happen again? She is slightly overweight with a BMI of 27-28, and for the past weeks we have started to exercise more than before to become healthier... We eat generally good and a well balanced diet, but I am trying to make her completely quit food high in fat/sugars.
Avatar n tn Can you have a stroke and go to the hospital and then not be shown on a MRI.
Avatar n tn B/P 225/120 ER said he did not have a stroke ( according to CT scan.Can't do MRI due to stents which he got for a 95% blockage to his heart 4 yrs ago.) Cardiologist switched BP meds and B/P going down well on that now.He' still very fatigued, difficulty with spacial perception, walking etc...The Nuero Doc can't see him till May 1st. Any idea what's up with all of this and what kind of treatment we should pursue?
Avatar m tn It is so frustrating when it does not show up on your MRI and one place tells you possible mini stroke and you go the next time and they transfer you to a different hospital and they do test afterwards and then say it's not a mini stroke because there is no evidence on the test so it must be symptomatic or stress. I am not stressed and i had one of the best days of the month when this happened.
Avatar n tn I'm a 76 year old lady who recently spent a week in the hospital because of episodes of TIA. After a MRI a CT scan, EEG, and ECG, they told me I had a mild stroke. While in the hospital they put me in heparin drip to thin my blood to start with, then they put me on plavix. I have episodes of bad sharp pain around my left temple coming down sometimes to may face, and from time to time especially after i take my BP meds with the plavix I get nauseated and light headed.
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 f tn So, from talking to the doctor's office and actually I had already been diagnosed with this ( I've had some mini-strokes in the past). I am going to go in and follow-up and get more testing. I need to talk to the doctor to find out if old events like those can cause new symptoms or if maybe I have had more than one stroke like event. We shall see. My doctor also said that some things may not be definite or totally diagnosed for quite some time.
Avatar f tn Well I went to the doctor today he said he definitely thought I had a mini stroke. I go in next week for an mri and blood work. Since I am 19 and this is so unusual he thinks it was caused by my birth control and suggest I stop taking it.
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.
Avatar m tn He had the classic symptoms, the doc ran the CAT, MRI, Doppler on neck and so on.. He was told he had a small stroke and that the arteries in his neck were 35 to 50% blocked. He has been on plavix and blood thinners since... Since the doctor said he had a stroke, he usually would have small to medium spells where he would have the same symptoms as the first and the doc said must be TIA's..... Well he had a fairly large TIA 2 weeks ago, numbness in face, problems talking.
Avatar f tn I went through tons of tests and the Brain MRI came back abnormal. I was told I had two white spots a venous angioma,scar tissue and spinal fluid on my brain. I've since progressed to muscle spasms mostly on my left side and cramping. The neurologist has diagnosed me with BFS. The numbness has gone away but it still comes and goes my left side is stronger but still not quite up to par. When I asked the neuro what the scar tissue is he really didn't give me an answer.
Avatar n tn The impression from my recent mri brain without contrast is as follows : 1.
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.
Avatar n tn Just diagnosed with complicated migraine, told the oxygen deprivation was not important. Residual symptoms - tremors, weakness, confusion, exhaustion, all psychological. Ain't medicine cool? Stay away from those darn first-day-in-the-hospital Dr.s!
Avatar f tn I told him I could be his friend, but he said he has feelings for me and liked me too much to be just friends, and that i'd distract his recovery. Anyway I just wanted to know if a mini stroke or stroke could cause hydrocephalus? He had been saying he felt dizzy, was vomiting, lost weight, headaches, felt as though he was on a boat and had sea sickness, no energy, sleeping a lot, couldn't concentrate, his vision was odd and I'm sure theres other things he told me.
Avatar f tn I would love to know what this is and what causes it. I've heard this could be TIA's, Absence Seizuzres or Mini Stroke. Has anyone have a similar experience? Thank You! This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/295029'>short memory loss seizures</a>.
