How would I know if I had a stroke? I had transient neurologic symptoms for 3-4 weeks that are now gone. These include dizziness, drowsiness, headache.

Those are not: "neurologic" symptoms. Those are nonspecific symptoms. "Neurologic" symptoms are e.g. hemiparesis, diplopia, ataxia, aphasia, hemianopsia, dysarthria, etc. What are your risk factors for stroke? (I'm guessing none.) Everyone should become familiar with the signs & symptoms of stroke; in your case, not cuz you're at risk for 1 yourself, but to take quick action if you witness 1 in someone else. ...Read more

After any vaccine the person/ child can feel drowsy and dizzy and if it happens soon after injection the person shd lie down right away or take the injection lying down. This prevents the blood to drain into the lower extremities by gravity and prevents the brain from being denied oxygen. A common enough cause of 'syncope' after any injection. ...Read more

If I had a blow to the head and had drowsiness, and dizziness n headache but now all I have is the headache should I still go to er?

Yes, best 2B safe.: If you had all those symptoms following head trauma you may have suffered a concussion, and depending upon the location of the impact, risk for fracture and potential bleeding will need to be identified and communicated to you regarding what to look out for and when.

Keep well hydrated, especially prior to exercise. ...Read more

Any way to get rid of dizziness, sleepiness caused by invega (paliperidone)? 3mg

Possibly: First insure that the sleepiness doesn't have another contribution, from something other than Invega (paliperidone). Insure that your day-night cycle is optimized with respect to a full night's sleep, timing food properly, and exercise. Then insure that you are taking it at night, and that you require that full dose, as opposed to a lower dose. Then you can consider an alertness aid, like NuVigil. ...Read more
