Mini stroke tia symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Mini stroke tia symptoms


Avatar f tn Well, a diagnosis cannot be made on the symptoms alone. The symptoms described could be seen both with mini-strokes/ MS, while the clinical improvement in TIA/ mini-strokes would be faster as compared to MS. The previous episodes of balance, walking and swallowing could or could not be related to neurological causes. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by a neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn Haven'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 Being that you have a history of HTN (high blood pressure), you are definitely at high risk for a TIA/Stroke. You could have possibly have had a TIA/Stroke. Secondly, with a blood pressure that elevated and symptoms, please go immediately to the ER; don't try to treat yourself at home; bad idea.
Avatar f tn I think it means since you have had a mini stroke(s) you are at risk for a stroke! TIA's temporarily interrupt the blood flow to certain parts of the brain but doesn't destroy brain cells or cause permanent damage. I would seek out advice from your PCP. If you are having any symptoms of a TIA go to ED immediately or call 911!!!!!!! I pray you never have a full blown stroke!! Take care!!!!
Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The symptoms which manifest in stroke will depend on the area of the brain affected. If the temporal lobe is affected, she can have irrational thoughts or hallucinations. Also, besides the stroke, if there is cerebral atrophy or dementia due to aging this could be causing her symptoms. Discuss her symptoms with her treating physician, as there are medications to improve the blood flow to the brain. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Hi Nicky, A transient ischemic attack or TIA, often referred to as ‘mini stroke’ is caused by changes in the blood supply to a particular area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that lasts for less than 24 hours. If symptoms persist for more than 24 hrs. then it is always categorized as a Stroke. Since you experienced the symptoms three days back and they are still persistent most probably you have suffered a Stroke.
Avatar n tn My FIL had the same symptoms as you last spring and he was diagnosed with a minor stroke or TIA. All of his symptoms did not disappear - he is left with slight paralysis in one leg. It took a couple of weeks for the other symptoms to disappear. My aunt also suffers from TIA's but usually after a minor TIA there remains a slight defect that appears permanent - sometimes mental and sometimes physical. I guess my question would be - do you have any permanent damage from your "attacks"?
Avatar n tn I'm a 76 year old lady who recently spent a week in the hospital because of episodes of TIA. After a MRI a CT scan, EEG, and ECG, they told me I had a mild stroke. While in the hospital they put me in heparin drip to thin my blood to start with, then they put me on plavix. I have episodes of bad sharp pain around my left temple coming down sometimes to may face, and from time to time especially after i take my BP meds with the plavix I get nauseated and light headed.
Avatar n tn i also have pins and needles in both arms and hands and sometimes in my legs, is this a mini stroke or pinched nerve? i have no headaches for about three weeks.
Avatar n tn Are there tests that can say whether or not I have had a mini stroke? I really want to know because from what I have read, a TIA can be leading up to something more serious. Anybody with any information that may be valuable to me. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Like if an area of the brain is affected, it causes certain results peripherally. In the absence of this, it is difficult to say that the symptoms are due to TIA or stroke. Many times with TIAs the imaging studies do not pick up any positive findings. If your symptoms persist or recur consult your doctor. Regards.
Avatar n tn I have laughed when I couldn't speak even though it wasn't funny. Was it you that had the TIA/mini stroke? I only ask because TIA has other symptoms also and you should also follow up with care from your Dr.
Avatar n tn About a month ago I had the following symptoms. My doctor has diagnosed it as a TIA. He believes I had it as a result of a virus. Any advice or suggestions as to what you think it could have been and what I should do next would be appreciated. I am a 42 yr old female with no history of headaches or heart problems. I was feeling great until the night before by TIA. The night before I had a headache that I considered "weird.
Avatar n tn At 39 I was diagnosed with a TIA/mini-stroke. Initial Sympton: White light covered my sight and I started to mumble and unable to formulate words/or communicate with my co-workers. I went home "slept it off" and the next day returned to the office however, I couldn't put my thoughts together while crafting emails and went to the emergency room (Navy Medical Portsmouth, Va). A highly respected neurologist, after many many tests...
Avatar f tn Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc. You have many of these symptoms. The treatment is essentially limited to symptomatic therapy so the course of action would not change much whether MS has been diagnosed or not.
Avatar n tn (at most) I called 911 and was taken into the hospital and they kept me over night and released me the next day without even treating me as I had a stroke or TIA since my symptoms disappeard after 2 minutes. You know when somthing is wrong. My regular doctor said that I had the flu and ran blood work that came back good. My heart doctor said my heart was fine. Since them I had about 3 anxiety attacks and am taking Xanax.
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.
639965 tn?1228347980 A TIA is a mini stroke basically and it makes me wonder if it was more than a mini stroke even though they said it wasn't.. because I still have some of the symtoms.. my eye doctor told me that my vision has gotten worse.. I told the PA that and he said my eye doctor was full of **** and the TIA and the vision problems can't be related..
Avatar f tn I know something was happening but just not sure what. Some people said it could be a mini stroke. Has anyone dealt with this before?

Avatar n tn I also had headaches for 4 months and in January of this year 2012 I had a mini stroke and now I have some memory loss and I still get dizzy, headaches, and I am always tired. My eye sight also goes blurry once in a while. I have to go to neurologist on the 14th of this month (February). I hate this I wish it would get better. How are you feeling now.
Avatar n tn Hello! Just wanted to put in my two cents. Ok I had a mini stroke (TIA) and this is what I suggest according to your symptoms. Maybe you only had a TIA, where there is no damage.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Transients ischemic attack (TIA), according to the American Heart Association, is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but with no lasting damage or injury to the brain. TIAs are important in predicting if a stroke will occur rather than when one will happen. In about half the cases, the stroke occurs within one year of the TIA.
Avatar m tn Hi, Stroke is diagnosed through several techniques: a neurological examination, CT scans (most often without contrast enhancements) or MRI scans, Doppler ultrasound, and arteriography. The diagnosis of stroke itself is clinical, with assistance from the imaging techniques. Imaging techniques also assist in determining the subtypes and cause of stroke.
Avatar n tn I was told by several doctors that I did not have a TIA or mini-stroke as two CAT scans did not indicate this. Despite their medical opinions about not have one, I remain unable to be articulate and to speak with ease as I used to. I have problems with clipped speech and have trouble beginning my sentence without speaking in jarble and without sounding incohrent.
Avatar f tn I then saw my pcp who told me that I could have been experiencing a severe anxiety attack and that he doubted it was a TIA (mini stroke) and even if it was the results would not have shown on the MRI or CSCAN because I waited too long in between my fingers not being able to move and going to the hospital. Basically I went to the ER five days later. They do not know how to explain to me what happened and I really would like to hear if anyone else has experienced something similar?
Avatar m tn My blood pressure is good, cholesterol is very good. 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?
