I'm a 76 year old lady who recently spent a week in the hospital because of episodes of TIA. After 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.
