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.
639965 tn?1228344380 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..

I'm especially interested in learning what mini-strokes are. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. d.
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 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!
905378 tn?1244854365 It could also be a TIA. Here's what Google shows in an early listing ... Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) A TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but ... Unlike stroke, when a TIA is over, there's no injury to the brain I would mention it to the doctor. Carcinista could easily be correct also.
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 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 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 f tn Why were you put on Plavix in the beginning... for heart attack or stroke? Absolutely going off of it can lead to a mini-stroke/TIA, but going odd wont CAUSE one. Unfortunately you have to go off before a biopsy as it makes your blood thinner and there is too much risk of bleeding. Don't worry too much about the TIA, most have no long standing effects unless you have a LOT of them. So you want to go back on the Plavix and DON'T miss any doses! It should work right away.
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.
Avatar f tn QUESTION POSSIBLE TIA OR MINI-STROKE?
Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
Avatar n tn ve had same problem for 16 yrs this week I had and echo with bubble done on my heart they found a hole in my heart which is normal in 25 percent of population but for me the pfo or hole in my heart causes tia or mini stroke there is a procedure that can fix hole but not approved by fda so not approved
Avatar f tn The symptoms could be due to a vaso vagal attack or a TIA or transient ischemic attack or mini stroke. It can also be due to nerve compression high up in the cervical spine. Hypoglycemia too can be a cause. You need a comprehensive investigation taking all these points in consideration. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Please discuss this with your doctor and get yourself investigated accordingly. Do let me know if there is any thing else you want to know. Take care!
Avatar n tn This would not be a mini stroke.The definition of a TIA is that symptons of the stroke disappear after 24 hours. So I would have him go back to the doctor and get a scan of his brain since it seems some memory was affected. With therapy and neuroplasticity he should be able to get better.Make sure he gets information on how to prevent a second stroke from happening.
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 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.
1474856 tn?1288289049 Transient Ischemic Attack Symptoms can include: numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.
Avatar n tn 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.
