Mini stroke or migraine

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke or migraine


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 n tn My doc said I had had a mini stroke!
Avatar m tn And now after the doctors said she had a migraine now all the sudden its a stroke i need to ask should i get another oppinion or what should i do im lost......
Avatar n tn Other differentials of stroke that we can consider are migraine, hypoglycemia, electrolyte imbalance, infection or seizure. For proper diagnosis, direct evaluation and additional diagnostic tests may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted with your follow-up consultation. Best regards.
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 f tn Can dehydration, food allergies (?soy) or too few calories trigger migraines? I had issues last week with vision and slurred speech. Doctors were querying a 'mini stroke' or migraine. I'm a little apprehensive of symptoms returning or they being precursors to a stroke. Are there preventative measures I could be taking? (My GP has insisted I exercise for a minimum of 20 minutes each day. It was only three times the week before before this happened. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn Hi I was wondering if the misdiagnosis of a TIA/Mini Stroke is possible. Recently I was at my friends house for a social gathering and I experienced what I thought at the time was a mini stroke. Symptoms appeared out of nowhere and included drooping of facial muscles on left side of face, slurring and difficulty forming sentences, chest pain, visual hallucinations (including but not limited to room breathing i.
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 Hi, How are you? A transient ischaemic attack (TIA) often called a mini stroke, happens when the brain’s blood supply is interrupted for a very brief time. The symptoms are very similar to a stroke (such as weakness on one side of the body, loss of sight and slurred speech) but they are temporary, lasting a few minutes or hours, and then disappearing completely within 24 hours.
Avatar f tn I am trying to establish if I am having a migraine or if all this is connected to TM/MS or whatever. I did go to my GP and he thought migraine but he said there is too much going on he doesn't believe for a minute that all my symptoms are migraine.

Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? According to the American Heart Association, TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but no lasting damage. This occurs when a blood clot temporarily clogs an artery. The symptoms occur rapidly and last a short time. The good thing is recovery is complete. It may recur and the risk for future stroke depends on the cause of TIA and management of risk factors.
Avatar m tn So this may be weird......I am 43 years old and don't get on the computer very much, but I am so confused. Scheduled for a Vaginal Hyterectomy along with Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy next's the confusion.......approximately 6 years ago I had a mini-stroke possibly caused by my Migraines.

Avatar m tn I find it hard to describe the sensation. It is almost like a head rush - or a chill or tingle - in my brain; and it is accompanied by memories that usually take a more linguistic form: I remember words being said or written, plus a little about the context. However, within what seems like milliseconds, it dissipates and I cannot remember what the words/memories were. The sensation doesn't happen often, but when it does, there is usually a cluster of them over a few-hour period.
Avatar f tn hi I'm in a bit of a state. this is saturday and on tuesday i was in bed with my lab top. i was feeling a bit strange when suddenly my hand and arm went nimb. at the same time mt boyfriend walked in and i felt wierd as i looked at him. i said my arm is numb and as i got out of bed my face also went numb. side of my nose and cheek and lip. i said to him clearly "god my face is numb" and then i panicked a bit and had to lire down.
Avatar f tn To me this sounds like the beginning of a Migraine headache, seizure, or TIA. (A TIA is a "Transient Ischemic Attack" aka a mini stroke.) I highly recommend you seek medical attention! Any of these neurological conditions require treatment to prevent any permenant damage! Has anything like this ever happened before??
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 Yesterday I had a most frightening experience, I was swimming (doing laps) which I do daily when I come over feeling weird, my whole left side felt like jelly, I got out of the pool and my left leg felt like it could barely support my weight and I struggled to lift my arm to towel dry my hair (left arm), I had no headache but the weakness was sudden onset on my left side and very scary, then 5 maybe 10 minutes and I was back to normal, could this have been a Transient Ischaemic attack?
151668 tn?1239921105 I had a small (lasting no longer than 15 minutes) episode yesterday where I lost peripheral vision and saw fuzzy, colorful "twinkly" stuff above and to the side of my eyesight. I could see things when I looked at them straight ahead, but that's about it. My friend, whose husband is a retired doctor said I should go to the hospital, which I made an appt with my doctor today. She asked another friend (who is an ophthalmologist) about it, and he said it sounded like I had a TIA.
Avatar f tn Is it possible that without me realizing it that I may have had a mini stroke and not know it or am I over reacting? Since then my blood pressure has been 150/90.
973422 tn?1247938726 It sounds not like a heart attack, but the more like a TIA or a mini stroke, or les likely a panic attack. I would suggest that you seek emergent medical attention as there is a possibility that this can recur or even worsen.
Avatar f tn Hi, this could be mini stroke or raised intracranial pressure; both have similar kind of presentation. What is your age and are you hypertensive or diabetic? Please consult doctor and get MRI done and do check your blood pressure. For more information regarding TIA or mini stroke visit http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn I should say that it is possible to get a stroke even at your age, so if you are at high risk from using birth control pills or smoking, then a mini stroke is a concern and you should get checked out. Do not smoke and consider non-hormonal birth control.
