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 n tn The chance of having a stroke approximately doubles for each decade of life after age 55, heredity, race, gender, history of previous TIA or stroke, hypertension, diabetes, smoking, poor physical activity, poor diet, hyperlipidemia etc. I would suggest that you visit a urologist and rule out all the risk factors listed above and take appropriate treatment. Best.
Avatar f tn Often oxygen-rich blood cannot be supplied adequately to the brain, causing the symptoms of a mini stroke. In severe cases, increased pressure can cause the arteries in the brain to rupture and cause a hemorrhagic (bleed) stroke. All the best to your mom http://www.savingthebrain.
Avatar f tn you need to be evaluated by a physician for any concomitant risk factors which could jeopardize and put you at risk of a stroke. Hope this helps. Take care.
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 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.
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 m tn i recently had a mini stroke and had heart attack over year ago with stents put in etc. now my blood pressure has been running left arm 160 over 88 and right arm 180 over 110 this doesnt seem to be a great concern to my physician but it is a great concern to me.
Avatar f tn htm Alcohol can also interfere with the function of blood pressure medication. Elevated blood pressure is a primary risk factor in inducing stroke.
Avatar n tn Yes it is possible and it is usually stated at the time of signing the consent form that there is a risk of stroke or heart attack. I believe that also clotting material can build up around the heart valves and dislodge at any moment.
Avatar m tn I am also told I have post concussive syndrome, causing my dizziness and fatigue. Can the impact of the accident cause a mini stroke if I have microvascular disease? I am scared that I may have a full blown stroke in the future, too. What can I do to prevent one? My memory now stinks worse than it already has and I'm not that old (late 40's).
Avatar f tn He has had 2 spells since where he was hospitalized, they did not know the first time if it was a mini stroke, on the second time they ruled out mini strokes and diagnosed him with seizures. He was put on seizure meds, the dosage has been changed 3 times. He seems to be doing well now. But he does nothing, he don't get dressed lots of days, he watches TV or sleeps. He was never like this before, he has been outside a couple of times, to ride the mower. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn he has been on Plavix for two years since the first one in 2008. my question is Plavix would reduce the risk of stroke but could not 100% prevent it, correct? I am not sure what is the cause yet this time. he is still in the process of going through all various types of tests and so far the doctor seems very comfortable with the results available; also he has totally recovered without any sign of stroke symptoms.
Avatar m tn I am not a doctor obviously, but I also had that problem after my stroke. It still pops up now and then even after a year. When it happens, first don't panic, that is the worst thing. When I feel that coming on, I will take an aspirin, a fish oil capsule and a full glass of water and it always goes away. If your eye problem is chronic, you should see a doctor, also, are you diabetic? That could be another symptom with eye problems.
Avatar f tn I have since researched TIAs and strokes,which can be caused by a hole in the heart, should I pursue this line of investigation, as I am obviously at a risk of having a full stroke at some time maybe. There is also heart disease in my family.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar n tn Hi everyone! Hop all is well and kicking the stroke's ass!  I was just wondering, what do you do during a mini stroke? Do you get up and start walking around to get the blood flow going, (that's what I do), or do you sit down and relax? It's crazy that this mini stroke came back into my life! I had it come and go for about six months when I was younger back in 2006. When it happened back then, my whole right side of my body was paralyzed.
Avatar f tn I had a mini stoke 3 years ago right after doing intense aerobics. About 2 weeks later I noticed my face changed. It became saggy and the left side of my face sagged more than the right. I hate looking in the mirror now, I look so much older. I've even been asked if I have grand kids. Did anyone else experience aging after a stroke? I am so depressed and I don't want anyone to see me like this.
Avatar m tn No warning whatsoever. With my heart attacks or mini stroke. Especially with the mini stroke. I was watching TV one evening and all of a sudden the vision in my right eye went. In an instant I could only see the bottom of everything with my right eye.
