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.

A poor glycemic control can predispose to hyperglycemia and ketones in urine, increasing risk of stroke. He may need medicines to dissolve any clot if was detected on CT head.

Avatar n tn t had a response on my first question concerning symptoms of a possible mini stroke or withdrawal symptoms from precocet or elavil. Should I take my husband to doctor - his office does not open until 9:00 am my time.
Avatar f tn I believe that the greatest risk is your likelihood of a full blown stroke, which of course can be life threatening. A TIA (mini stroke) is usually considered a warning sign by Doctors that something needs to be addressed. I assume they have given you medication to help lower the risk of a clot forming? such as aspirin?

I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....

My mother (deceased) had experienced these in the past and she had severe heart problems that the doctors said may have caused the strokes.

Thank you.

Avatar f tn While prognosis may not be excellent with haemorrhagic stroke, your doctor is correct. Deterioration after initial progression could indicate another stroke/ mini stroke, issues with microcirculation or other neurological conditions. I would suggest considering a review with his treating neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
