784336 tn?1236258476 Insist that they do a CT scan of her head to see if she has had a stroke. If she has had a stroke, she needs to be a medication to prevent another one. If her eyes were black, most likely it was her pupils dilating and this could mean brain damage. Tell her doctors that you need answers because she is not the same.
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 So one should get better or stay the same. He was showing good signs of recovery from his Jan. 3 hemmoragic stroke but six weeks ago started a decline in cognitive functions that has continued till the present Every day he seems more confused. He has had all the scans and blood work done, several times. Anyone else experienced this?

Avatar m tn You need to be investigated for hypertension, hyperlipidemia or hypercoagulability. These are warning signs of an impending stroke and need to be treated carefully to avoid permanent neurological deficit from a stroke. Hope this helps. Take care.

Avatar f tn They last about 20 minutes. Blood tests, CT scans, and mri/mra showed no signs of a stroke. Experts said these episodes could have been mini strokes. The neurologists said they could have been seizures. Every time I sneeze I'm so afraid that it will happen again. Does any one have any idea of what is causing this problem?
Avatar f tn They are also called Mini-Strokes but that is not a good term as they are not a Stroke or CVA (cerebrovascular accident). A TIA is a CVA (stroke) that has resolved or has improved functionality in the affected body part. By defination a TIA resolves in 24 hrs but most resolve in minutes. Sadly, TIAs are often warning signs of a future CVA ( stroke). This risk is increased in the days following a TIA.
Avatar n tn Following some reading on the internet, I understand 2 types of scans are normally used at this stage to detect for signs of a stroke - CT scan and MRI scan. I have not found out from my dad which scan is he going for tomorrow. However, I wish to understand better what these scans can tell about a patient. Since TIA does not leave any permanent damage to the brain, can one say there is no tell-tale signs in the brain to suggest if a TIA had actually happen?
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 Although a stroke can manifest as a transient visual disturbance, that is relatively unusual. But something is going on, and you best have it checked out. Anything having to do with vision is VERY important. You cannot be turned down for medical assistance in the event of possible blindness because of financial reasons. If it happens? Good! Take them to court! (Just make sure that you sue for the cost of a chauffer).
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 n tn I just got out of the hospital after suffering a few mini strokes. I was released after 3 days and doctors are still confused. I have mini stroke or seizure? as my dx. They released with with aspirin and a pat on the back. First day my arm went linp and I went to call for help my mouth would not move and my speech was slurred, it only lasted a minute. 2nd day, I went to yell at my dog for stealing food and my left leg went limp and again my speech slurred.
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.
