Tia mini stroke treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Tia mini stroke treatment


Avatar f tn Hello...TIA's are a warning to our bodies that a full blown stroke CAN be headed our way. How is your dads blood pressure? What about clogged arteries? How is his overall health? There is no way of knowing exactly what will happen as far as if another TIA will hit or if it'll be a full blown stroke..only thing your father can do is take the necessary precautions to lessen the risks.
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 ve had same problem for 16 yrs this week I had and echo with bubble done on my heart they found a hole in my heart which is normal in 25 percent of population but for me the pfo or hole in my heart causes tia or mini stroke there is a procedure that can fix hole but not approved by fda so not approved
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 are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
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 f tn 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!
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 n tn Hi I was wondering if the misdiagnosis of a TIA/Mini Stroke is possible. Recently I was at my friends house for a social gathering and I experienced what I thought at the time was a mini stroke. Symptoms appeared out of nowhere and included drooping of facial muscles on left side of face, slurring and difficulty forming sentences, chest pain, visual hallucinations (including but not limited to room breathing i.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately your additional information of being hospitalised after having a seizure, and your resulting visual, speech etc issues wouldn't typically match 'normal' ischaemic white matter lesions! There must be a lot more additional information on your MRI, and from your neurological assessment, cognitive assessment and other related test results IF the hospital dr's have diagnosed you of having had a small stroke.
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 f tn Yes, you're panicking just a bit...but hopefully I can provide some insight that'll help you understand what you're going through a little better, since I've been through nearly the same thing. Most of the tests ordered by your neurologist are standard for someone believed to be experiencing transient ischemic attacks (TIAs).
Avatar f tn I agree with Sally - please go the ER asap as this could be a TIA (mini stroke)
Avatar f tn The symptoms could be due to a vaso vagal attack or a TIA or transient ischemic attack or mini stroke. It can also be due to nerve compression high up in the cervical spine. Hypoglycemia too can be a cause. You need a comprehensive investigation taking all these points in consideration. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Please discuss this with your doctor and get yourself investigated accordingly. Do let me know if there is any thing else you want to know. Take care!
731247 tn?1233787586 Just a quick note to let everyone know that I have been directed by my hepotologist to discontinue treatment. I was in week 33 when I experienced three transient ischemic attacks (TIA) in four days. These TIAs are a sort of mini strokes. Symptoms where slurred speach, droopy and numb left side of face, vision problems. Just like a stroke but fortunately not premanent. According to my study doc can be caused by the interferon. Which is why the took me out of the study.

Avatar m tn Hi John, Saw my GP, got refered to specialist in TIA ,she gave me ultra sound test which was ok, ECG which was ok, came to the conclusion that it was a very small blood clot passing through one of the veins and causing a TIA or mini stroke. I am on asprin now for a couple of weeks and have to get the results of blood tests and re-visit my GP. Thanks once again for your advice and help.Not so worried now!
Avatar m tn I would see the doctor as soon as possible, please do not wait, if it was a stroke or TIA (mini stroke) waiting will only make matters worse.
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 f tn Hi, How are you? According to the American Heart Association, TIA is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but no lasting damage. This occurs when a blood clot temporarily clogs an artery. The symptoms occur rapidly and last a short time. The good thing is recovery is complete. It may recur and the risk for future stroke depends on the cause of TIA and management of risk factors.
Avatar n tn Either it was a case of transient ischemic attack or a bad case of panic attack. TIA or transient ischemic attack is a mini stroke that happens when the blood supply to brain is temporarily cut off. The episodes last for a maximum of 24 hours and then resolve or a new symptom starts.
Avatar f tn This sounds like it could be a TIA (Transient Ischemic Stroke). These are considered mini strokes with no lasting effects typically. Symptoms range from numbness & tingling in any part of your body to losing control of your extremeites for 1-10 minutes. I suggest you go straight to your emergency room via ambulance. Ambulances get you in quicker and if this is a TIA or possible stroke you want to be seen STAT.
Avatar f tn Okay, hello, I am a 22 year old male and I believe I suffered a TIA (Mini-Stroke) and am fighting to just get an appointment with a neurologist. On the 20th of April I was driving when I noticed sudden pins and needles. First in my nose, then my gums, then spreading down my body until my entire body was numb with pins and needles and I began shaking. I believed I was having a seizure so I fought to pull my car over and realized I could barely move at all.
Avatar m tn I don't think it was a "mini stroke" (TIA). especially the fact that the paralysis was on the same side makes me think of a different neurological problem. as a priority she should do Complete Blood Count, ESR, liver function tests. in search of indirect signs of infections/inflammations. the specific test to confirm that it wasn't brain ischemia is MRI to the brain but you should consult a Neurologist first.
