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!
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 m tn These are seizures, migraines, mini stroke affecting memory areas etc. Is he a hypertensive and how is his blood glucose control? 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. Systemic evaluation including glycosylated hemoglobin, electrolytes and renal function indices are important and need to be checked and corrected.
Avatar f tn I am a 51 wfm, and six month ago I was diagnosed a mini stroke. I had an MRI in which a 1,5 mm aneurism was found and no signs of lesions of any kind. On a follow up MRI a week ago, it is said: "there is a punctiform, bi-cerebral hyperintensity in Flair T2, basically in semi-oval center, further toward the peri-atrial region and peri-ventricular diffused bilateral.

Avatar f tn my mom had a severe stroke about 20 years ago and has recovered. however recently she has been having tias. sometimes once a month other times two in a day. What does this mean? What should I be looking for? Is her body shutting down? she has diab type 2 and needs quad bypass surgery but it is too risky.
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?
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.
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.
Avatar f tn in the sense of symptoms of a stroke and stroke warning as signs of a pathology that could lead eventually to a stroke. the only way that could indicate higher risk of stroke is that it was caused by a vascular problem, but you should have a bit more going on I guess. it also depends on your age. maybe it was caused by sudden sun exposure. why are you worried about having a stroke, do you have other symptoms? is there someone in your family who's had a stroke?
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!
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.
6359965 tn?1393488636 I am 44 yrs old and have had 2 TIA's and a moderate stroke from the past 4 months. I had an ocular stroke initially and had a moderate stroke and I was in MICU and lost feeling on my left side..and lost movement in my leg. I had rehab for that...your question of headaches hits home for me. I have headaches all the time, every day. that's usually a sign my blood pressure is elevated. since these mini strokes, I noticed i have a lot more headaches.
Avatar f tn I have a friend who is in his 20s and was sent home ill from work vomiting and with a terrible headache, dizzyness and other symptoms. Even slurred speech and not remembering words. His doctor told him he had a virus and sent him home. A few days later his mother was ill with the same virus and went to hospital as she was ill. He ddin't go to hospital however as he didn't want to go. But after 2 and a half weeks of him being ill, he had enough and went to the hospital on Friday.
Avatar n tn Last month he a had a seizure which lasted about 30 sec with no apparently no lasting side affects, then last week a mini stroke. My question is, are the mini strokes a side affect of his alzhiemers disease and will they keep happening or go to full blown strokes?
Avatar f tn Often oxygen-rich blood cannot be supplied adequately to the brain, causing the symptoms of a mini stroke. In severe cases, increased pressure can cause the arteries in the brain to rupture and cause a hemorrhagic (bleed) stroke. All the best to your mom http://www.savingthebrain.
Avatar n tn I am afraid that my husband had a stroke on 4/19/08 and all these episodes are mini strokes and leading up to a major stroke. Please help with any ideas. My husband has said he doesn't know how much longer he can go on like this. He is on short term disability right now but he has less then four months to get back to work or he loses his job and all health benefits. We are both under alot of stress due to I don't work and now I am afraid to leave him alone due to confusion, headaches.
Avatar n tn   I was just wondering, what do you do during a mini stroke? Do you get up and start walking around to get the blood flow going, (that's what I do), or do you sit down and relax? It's crazy that this mini stroke came back into my life! I had it come and go for about six months when I was younger back in 2006. When it happened back then, my whole right side of my body was paralyzed.
