Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
Avatar f tn Thank you. Even though the MRI came up as normal, my question is did I have a TIA (mini stroke). My doctor said he is sure I had 3 TIA's. Thank you for your concern. This is very scary for me. My whole family has died of heart disease, I am the last of the family and the youngest child.

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.
889293 tn?1241085124 Am now due to have MRI today. Consultant has said that if MRI shows damage then he is sure that I have suffered mini-stroke, but if not then its stress! Is it likely that the MRI will show something that the CT hasn't? (CT done 2 weeks after last episode MRI 5 weeks later). Also if the MRI does come back clear, should I just accept stress as the reason behind my sudden visual loss and numbness/heavyness etc in my leg?
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 f tn MRI said I had a punctate focus chronic hemorraghe in the left temporal lobe. MD said I had a mini-stroke. Neuro optomologist said the eye incident had nothing to do with the MRI. He said I had a spasm. Carotid, echo came back normal. Aorta sono had some plaque. EEG found slow brain waves in the left temporal lobe. Am scheduled for 72 hour EEG. What is the doctor trying to find? Did I have a mini-stroke or not?
Avatar n tn Husband woke up with dizziness, vertigo, vomiting at 3 AM last week. 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 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 I recently went to urgent care and was told that I possibly had suffered a mini stroke, however my mri was not schduled until 08/25/08. 2 months away from the day he said that. His choose to tell me that added extra stress causing my blood pressure to elevate and me making another urgernt care visit. If I had a mini stroke should I have not had a scan right away.
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 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 My doc said I had had a mini stroke!
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 think its tias (mini strokes)this needs tretment before a big stroke comes !!!!!!!!!!! sorry to worry you but this happend to my nan and she died becase she did not start tretment in time .
1266422 tn?1270239216 I thought of botulism, listeria, and stroke. Stroke was the most prominent one I thought about because of the numbness on the left side of my body, lack of speech and delirious hallucinations. I'm completely lost as to what this condition is. Help?
Avatar m tn This morning I was hugging my girlfriend and suddenly her right leg gave out and she dropped her car keys out of her right hand. She was then dizzy for about 5 seconds and was fine after. She has been fine all day. She ears healthy and wirks out 4-5 days a week. Any input as to what would cause this would be deeply appreciated. My first thought was "mini stroke" but she has no symptoms. Thank you fir help!
