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 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 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.

I'm especially interested in learning what mini-strokes are. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. d.
Avatar f tn Sounds like you had a TIA with a residual effect unfortunately. My father had the same thing happen to him. All the best with OT.
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.
1474856 tn?1288289049 I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system. I may need to go outside of the network to get "real" treatment, not just some Dr calling me crazy and saying my depression is an issue. i have not have a depression problem for years. This is not depression. I am sad after having this go on for over a month now & worried, but me feeling this did not cause it.
Avatar m tn I am worried because I just googled this and found TIA. My mother had a stroke 3 years ago. I am a smoker and a drinker but am not overweight. Any advice I am so worried.

Avatar n tn A TIA is a mini stroke. In the hospital the Doctor and nurses will keep close eye on vitals and and blood count and be very watchful to make sure that a stroke doesn't happen, the next 48 hours are cruseful. God Bless you and Yours!
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 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!!!!
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 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.
