Mini stroke numbness

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke numbness


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.
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 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 I have had 2 episodes of these symtoms recently and was hoping it was not prestroke mini strokes. I had gotten dizzy, pale and my lips and tougue went numb. The numbness wastn't on one side but was equally numb across my lips and tongue. Thanks for any thoughts.
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.

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 When I got that feeling for the first time about two months ago, I went to a neurologist and he was suspecious of mini stroke but not sure of it. MRI was very clean and did not detect any problem in my brain. I am 60 years old and I've been taking one 81 mg aspirin a day for the last 7 years and I increased that to two perday(morning & night) since this happened..

Avatar f tn My question since the numbness, the buzzing the spasms the weakness, come and go could I be having mini strokes? I'm not doubting his diagnosis I'm just wondering because the numbness and the buzzing etc I can put up with but the word searching is scary because my mom has ALzheimers and my dad has had a stroke.
Avatar f tn My name is Ellie and im 16 years old. I had a mini stroke on the left side of my brain about 2 months ago. I didnt have any medical problems, no blood clots, high blood pressure, i dont take birth control (any of the main factors) but i am overweight. Doctors have no idea what could of caused it except for stress and thats the hardest part dealing with it because i dont know how too prevent it or how it happened. I couldnt talk (felt like i had a thick tounge) and had numbness in my right arm.
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 Call 9-1-1 because it may be a stroke or a T.I.A. (mini-stroke) and minutes count for treatment if it is a stroke. But don't worry... if you are a Christian, pray instead and you are in His hands!

Avatar n tn You are either having a very bad panic attack or hypoglycemic attack or a mini stroke or pinched nerves causing numbness or even a heart attack. Please get a doctor to examine you immediately. Take care!
Avatar m tn However it would be wise to get your symptoms checked out to rule out mini stroke. I agree that stress can cause these symptoms as well. Well wishes to you!
