Avatar f tn Well, a diagnosis cannot be made on the symptoms alone. 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!
Avatar n tn Haven'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 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 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 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 n tn I'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.
1873696 tn?1405381010 But it could also be due to an entity called TIA or transient ischemic attack, which as the name indicates there is a temporary lack of blood flow to a particular part of the brain. This usually recovers, but these people are more prone for strokes. And anxiety can cause high blood pressure. So, if your symptoms persist, please have yourself evaluated. Regards.
Avatar n tn My FIL had the same symptoms as you last spring and he was diagnosed with a minor stroke or TIA. All of his symptoms did not disappear - he is left with slight paralysis in one leg. It took a couple of weeks for the other symptoms to disappear. My aunt also suffers from TIA's but usually after a minor TIA there remains a slight defect that appears permanent - sometimes mental and sometimes physical. I guess my question would be - do you have any permanent damage from your "attacks"?
Avatar n tn About a month ago I had the following symptoms. My doctor has diagnosed it as a TIA. He believes I had it as a result of a virus. Any advice or suggestions as to what you think it could have been and what I should do next would be appreciated. I am a 42 yr old female with no history of headaches or heart problems. I was feeling great until the night before by TIA. The night before I had a headache that I considered "weird.
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 n tn If you have had a small stroke or TIA, you have a far bigger chance of having a major stroke. Really, go to the ER or a doctor right away.
Avatar n tn Are there tests that can say whether or not I have had a mini stroke? I really want to know because from what I have read, a TIA can be leading up to something more serious. Anybody with any information that may be valuable to me. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Like if an area of the brain is affected, it causes certain results peripherally. In the absence of this, it is difficult to say that the symptoms are due to TIA or stroke. Many times with TIAs the imaging studies do not pick up any positive findings. If your symptoms persist or recur consult your doctor. Regards.
Avatar f tn I believe i had a mini stroke yesterday. I was hetting ready to get out of bed and all of a sudden i became extremely dizzy.. nauseated..sleepy...blurred vision...i couldn't walk right ..i was mixing up words....we thought maybe my sugar levels were low so i drank some juice..it didnt help and i ended up staying in bed for a few hrs... doozing off and on...i continued with my day but didnt feel well enough to drive..u went shopping and as the day passed i felt better ..
Avatar n tn There seems to be a relationship between an increased incidence of a TIA and the presence of a patent foramen ovale. At this point , a migraine may still be a differential considering that your patent foramen ovale has been repaired.Yet, a TIA is not completely excluded. TIA is usually difficult to assess diagnostically since symptoms may resolve within 24 hours. Were your neck vessels and blood vessels in your extremities evaluated? A thromboembolism has to be ruled out.
Avatar n tn I think you should get your current symptoms properly checked out as they may well be the signs you are asking about. A TIA is a warning of a stroke wanting to happen & you don't want to go there. Also please pull back & rest when you have symptoms or fatigue, it's your body saying "enough". Brain injuries seem to create fatigue unlike any other fatigue we have know.
639965 tn?1228347980 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..
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 m tn My blood pressure is good, cholesterol is very good. 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 The initial symptoms could have been signs of stroke versus TIA, seizure, migraine variant, or even a problem in his cervical spine. Now with mixed symptoms, it makes it more difficult to be certain the cause. Without taking a history and examining your father I cannot narrow the possible causes. I would recommend having a consultation with a neurologist. Your father may need an EEG and perhaps a MRI of his cervical spine (neck). His blood pressure and cholesterol should be controlled.
Avatar f tn These symptoms are suggestive of multiple sclerosis, a demyelinating disorder affecting the white matter of the brain. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs.
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.
1413972 tn?1305583364 numbness, vision changes, loss of speech, etc for a 20-60min period of time. It looks like a stroke--and (to me), it feels like what I think a stroke would feel like....but there is not anything that shows up on the MRI or CT...I've had the gammut of tests run and that didn't show up. Now when it happens (3 times since the first March attack), I keep calm, lay down, and know it will pass...GL!!!!!
Avatar n tn HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?A TIA ATTACK IS A MINI STROKE.THEY CAN DAMAGE MANY AREAS OF THE BRAIN.TIA ATTACKS USUALLY JUST A FEW MINUTES.THEY DO NOT LAST HOURS.YOU SAID YOUR HUSBAND HAS HYPERTENSION,BUT IS BEING TREATED FOR IT,HAS YOUR HUSBAND EVER HAD HIS HEART CHECKED?SOME TIMES IF THE HEART IS NOT PUMPING ENOUGH BLOOD TO CERTAIN AREAS OF THE BODY,YOU WILL GET NUMBNESS IN THOSE EXTREMITIES.TALK WITH HIS DOCTOR ABOUT ANY CHANCE OF THIS SINCE HE DOES HAVE HYPERTENSION.TAKE CARE OF HIM AND YOUR SELF.
765802 tn?1263304451 Other symptom of forgetfulness may be a long tem effect of the untreated Stroke. Did you monitor your blood pressure regularly after that? The headaches that you are getting now may be a warning sign that your blood pressure is raised even now. Remember a Stroke may occur a number of times if proper treatment and prevention measures are not taken. If you have a high blood pressure, you are always at risk. Please take proper treatment to keep the blood pressure under control.
Avatar n tn I also had headaches for 4 months and in January of this year 2012 I had a mini stroke and now I have some memory loss and I still get dizzy, headaches, and I am always tired. My eye sight also goes blurry once in a while. I have to go to neurologist on the 14th of this month (February). I hate this I wish it would get better. How are you feeling now.
Avatar n tn I'd say you had a doozy of a stroke and I am NOT a Doctor nor do I pretend to be one.The spasms do come and go as I have found in my case although I have picked up other symptoms now that lead me to believe its TIA although they don't disappear like they should. Good luck to you and don't let anyone tell you your wrong about what your feeling, its your body and you should know it better than any Doctor anyways.
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.
