I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.

Avatar n tn I'm glad your husband's BP is coming down. I am not a doctor, so I have no idea what could have happened. Maybe a mini-stroke? I just don't know, sorry. Was he on BP meds BEFORE this happened? What is he taking now? I'll keep him in my prayers...
Avatar n tn I am a 65 year old woman. I had a mini stroke. I suffered wity double vision for 8 hours. No one can tell me why. I have gone through many tests. I have a small part of the double vision trying to come back, I just feel it. I hope you all the luck in the world, and will pray for you.
Avatar f tn my sister is 17yrs old and 37 weeks pregnant...she had a mini stroke 2 days ago..baby is fine at this point and the neurologist on duty told us the best course of action is for her to take a blood thinner injection daily and hopefully the baby wouldn't come before the medicine had time to do its job. She is already dialated to 2... Would it be better to take the baby now? is this the best course of action? what are the chances of another stroke during labor?

Avatar m tn Did your dad recently experience a stroke or T.I.A. (mini-stroke)? From what I find online, hypodensity on a CT scan in a patient who has had a stroke is bad news.... this is something you and your dad (if he is able) need to discuss with his physician. In patients who've had a minor stroke or a transient ischemic attack (mini-stroke), hypodensity in the white matter of the brain means extra risk of the potential for a future stroke. (See PM) I have a parent who suffered from a T.I.A.
Avatar n tn I Had Been Diagnosed With TIA(Mini Strokes) And Was Wondering What I Could Do To Stop The Mini Strokes From Coming Back. Do Headaches Follow This Type Of Mini Stroke? I Have Just Been Having So Many Headaches After These Mini Strokes That I Do Not Know What Do Anymore. Please Help Me Answer These Questions Because I Am Tired Of This Going On And On. Is There Any Type Of Medicine That Could Stop It Or Treatment. I Would Go As Far As Surgery If That Would Correct It.
Avatar m tn I had a mini stroke about 9-10 years ago no complication with my walking but now my left leg limps and get unbalance when walking should I have had another stroke?
Avatar n tn Call 9-1-1 because it may be a stroke or a T.I.A. (mini-stroke) and minutes count for treatment if it is a stroke. But don't worry... if you are a Christian, pray instead and you are in His hands!

Avatar n tn My husband had an Acute CVA August 2002 then became addicted to percocet. Has been in rehab and I think drug free for approx. 2 weeks. Was put on Elavil to help sleep insomnia at that time. Quit taking it and this morning says he doesn't feel right. Thinks he might have had a mini stroke. Right arm doesn't feel right and says speech is different. How do I know if this is Elavil related? Should I call doctor? Will a C-Scan tell me if a mini stroke has occurred?
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 m tn My question is, does that sound like a mini-stroke to you? If so, what is the possibility of a major stroke. Thank You.
Avatar n tn arm right up to my shoulder on the side I was not sleeping on. Have I had a 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 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 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 m tn I am 78 and had a mini stroke 11 Jun 2014. I was placed in the hospital for overnight observation and was released the following day to my family doctor. I have high blood pressure so he placed me on Exforge 10-325-25mg HCT and also Clopidogrel 75mg In the hospital I had a MRA, MRI, CATSCAN, Chest Xray and several blood tests. I lost peripheral vision in the left eye. When I left the hospital I had this slight lump across from my left ear about 1 inch long pointing to the top of my head.
