Mini stroke symptoms mayo clinic

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke symptoms mayo clinic


Avatar m tn I have had a speech problem, which I attribute to a mini stroke as diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. They also diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. Since it didn't clear up, I sought a Speech Therapist who diagnosed me with Dysarthria. I have not received any treatment yet. I have had the condition for several months. I used to fall a lot, but I have learned to be very careful. My vision is blurry. I also have Diabetes, type II.
Avatar f tn Her current neurologists has said that if he can't find a way to help her within six months, he will write her a referral to the Mayo clinic or Shands teaching hospital. Then our insurance company will have to cover it. The saga conyinues...
Avatar n tn Also blood work negative for Myasthenia Gravis or Multiple Sclerosis. Hospital said too much time had past, and only suggested possible mini-stroke. Tests did NOT confirm any heart damage. Only one small blood clot found in neck, but too small to do any surgery. January 18, 2007 Progressive Weakness and slurred speech. Current Meds: Diabetes and High Blood Pressure.
Avatar n tn You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
Avatar n tn I was only out of work for 2 weeks and during that time was somewhat out and about. Symptoms of a new illness presented in March, starting with a canker sore, and progressing to flu like symptoms. I noticed greenish/brown mucus and tooth pain and went to doctor for an anti-biotic (I think Bactrim). I took the antibiotic which seemed to clear up what I thought was a sinus infection but I still wasn't feeling better and my glands were very swollen (they still are too a degree).
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
549269 tn?1236134237 Mini strokes as they are called. I am in Rochester MN right now at the Mayo Clinic to see several doctors. YEsterday at my hotel I was taken by ambulence after having sudden severe dizzyness, slurred speech, left sided weakness, difficulty walking, and possible seizures. After 1 1/2 hours in the ER and several tests I started to return to normal. I see an stroke doctor today and Dr Oro in January. Should I call Dr Oro about my symptoms?
Avatar n tn He told us that it wasn't a mini-stroke because the symptoms would have disappeared by then. It turned out to be a blocked artery (he has an implant due to an abdominal aortic aneurysm). The neurologist sent us back to my husband's vascular surgeon. He wouldn't run any abdominal-related tests on him since he felt that the surgeon would end up ordering his own tests (they work at different hospitals).
Avatar f tn Not sinuses either. I am also waiting on an appointment with Mayo Clinic or Johns Hopkins. I wish I knew if one or the other had more experience with my neuro condition. I haven't been able to find anything to indicate this on the Internet so if anyone has experience with either of these, I'd greatly appreciate some insight. Normally I wouldn't be asking anyone for help but since I am now so sick, it is affecting my children.
1139187 tn?1355710247 Exactly 5 hours after we take the thyroid regardless of what it is, our body almost has a mini stroke. Heart races for about 4 hours, shakey, horrible horrible electricity feeling in one ear, hands go numb, nausea, irritable like you would not believe. There is nothing to do but cry and pray until it passes. If we do not take anything, we are exhausted, shakey, back hurts, sweaty, ears have tinnitus, feet hurt etc. Always with an electrical feeling in one ear.
Avatar n tn My sugguestion would be to research it with the Mayo Clinic web site. I had to take my 19 year old son there to have heart surgery done. They don't really suggest having ablations done because it's really inducing a heart attack and you can't control the damage that is being done to the heart. It's a guessing game. No guarantee. That's what they told me, when I was going to have it done to him. I changed my mind and we opted for open heart surgery and had his heart shaved.
1139187 tn?1355710247 Dr lupo, I am planning on going to the mayo clinic. How far are you from there? I am possibly going monday. No one in Dallas has helped me. Do you offer car service.
712042 tn?1254572809 This Sleep Study result, on top of my current heart state with MVD, put me at great risk for a heart attack, stroke and mini-strokes-TIA (transient ischemic attacks) all in the absence of any CAD. This also explains why I'm so tired and with problematic chest pain even with the amount of nitro I wear each day. My heart was not getting any rest and was under a great deal of stress around the clock.
Avatar f tn , regarding my symptoms and handed it to my PCP, and now I am being referred to neurology dept. at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville where hopefully I will finally get a diagnosis--whatever it is.
Avatar n tn EEG was normal, brain scan showed old 3mm lunar infarct (mini stroke). In addition slightly more parenchymal volume loss for someone of my age. In 2004 I was hospitalized with menengitis for 2 weeks in isolation. To date I continue to struggle with the affects of that, though I know it did not cause this odd loss of motor function that was brief and yet very concerning.
1215977 tn?1266450117 Why did they put you on aspirin therapy when they found no evidence of a heart problem- did they suspect TIA (mini-stroke) or just prescribe it for pain or was it because they did not do enough testing to be sure it wasn't your heart? How did they know your chest pain wasn't being caused by esophageal spasms, which aspirin would likely aggravate instead of helping?
494976 tn?1302714301 I'm actually trying to find out if there is any benefit to trying to get her into MAYO or some other clinic. I'm really at a loss, I'm just watching her slowly deteriorate. Does anybody have any advice?
Avatar n tn I think the two are directly connected. She says she has no other symptoms of pain and her stroke symptoms are gone. She only did two weeks of doxy...two weeks! Anyway I hope you are better and any advise you could give me would greatly help. I seem to have a great doctor who is willing to keep on treating. He said he treated someone with lyme that had it over a year for three months of antibiotics and they are fine. That is all I really have to go on right now.
Avatar n tn Hi Karen I'm a strokee but didn't have any TIA's prior, so my interest is making sure you don't have a stroke. I think you should get your current symptoms properly checked out as they may well be the signs you are asking about. A TIA is a warning of a stroke wanting to happen & you don't want to go there. Also please pull back & rest when you have symptoms or fatigue, it's your body saying "enough".
Avatar f tn Sweety, what you experienced was a transient ischemic attack aka 'mini stroke' although your side effects were a bit different than the normal occurring, they are still within the boundaries of a stroke. The sweating + nausea not to mention the 3 minutes or so you were delusional and yelling at your friend. I am a male, also 21. I've experienced one as well, numbness in my left arm and mouth, delusional as well, then muscle convulsions.
Avatar n tn Heading to Mayo for possible ablation Feb. 20. I have paroxymal afib. Doctor said success rate is about 70% cure, 30% aren't cured but do get better--less afib. Do you find these stats warranted? How long does the "cure" last? Any research on this? What are the most common side effects after an ablation?
Avatar m tn Has the doctor checked you for Parkinson's carried out tests if you have had a mini stroke? Is there a different doctor at the practice that you could see, that could look at your problems from a different angle? It appears that this particular doctor has told you that your symptosm are psychological, because he has run out of ideas as to what your underlying problem is.
Avatar f tn I'm developing new symptoms & worsening ones which are literally scaring me more than usual & I'm considering driving 4 hrs to an ER close to where I'm trying to get a referral to. I went to ER local here & once again,i was the teacher, anyway,i thought I was having mini strokes, right eye & right side of mouth drooping,nonstop headache over right ear for over a, week, my BP(normally 80/50 ish) was 131/57 HR 95.
Avatar n tn I started having tingling & numbness that was sporadic in the extremities 2 weeks after having my daughter in 2002. I had her vaginal w/ an epidural. I had many tests, & my doctors could never figure out why I had these symptoms. The neurological problems seem to have subsided w/ time, but about a month ago, I developed a strange headache that comes and goes. It began in the left front lobe of my brain.
388544 tn?1231986094 As a patient myself, I'd say to keep looking for a doctor that will dedicate him or herself to helping you find out what's going on. I do have a friend with MS symptoms (but undiagnosed) that has been to the Mayo Clinic...they said she was having migraines - but without the headache. Weird. I'll get her to take a look at your post and see what she thinks...but copy and paste this as a new "question".
Avatar f tn 2 O-Bands are considered positive by the majority of the MS world. The Mayo Clinic has started requiring 4 or more to call it positive for reasons I have never seen explained or justified. Several members of our flrum have 8 or more here. 10 is lots. I do have a question. How many white cells were in your CSF? If there were 20 or more it points to a CNS infection, 10-20 is equivocal, and less than 10 should be normal. Varies with the lab.
183202 tn?1219857259 That is the incident where the right side of my body went numb, and my leg buckled up and I could not move it. When I called 911, they thought for sure I was having a mini-stroke or partial seizure. But then the symptoms subsided, and the feeling returned to my leg and I was able to move everything fine again.
21064 tn?1309312333 I just read a blurb on Mayo Clinic site that says ocular migraines can present with flashing lights, zigzags, blind spots and one other thing (geez, my memory stinks). I checked out the bubble test too. They do an IV (yuck) and send in bubbly saline solution, watch how it flows through the heart. Apparently not dangerous at all. Sounds weird though.
Avatar n tn I am so sick of people laying this heart rhythm problem on anxiety. I wish every bleeping doctor could experience these weird, rapid, wild, scarry heart rhythm for just one week and then tell me if a head check is in order. I think if I read one more post about anxiety being the blame I am going to puke. Here is an interesting story that happened to me. After an accident in a swimming pool I started to have pains in my back and my sides.
Avatar n tn I have heard great things about the cleveland clinic and the mayo clinic. I am in Canada so the stuff up here is a bit different, but I am seeing my EP for the first time on Friday so I am crossing my fingers that I can be cured! I dont want to take meds longer then I have too. Just out of curiousity do you have any other heart conditions as well as the afib? Anyway keep in touch.
