What are the symptoms of a mini-stroke?

Same as a stroke: A mini-stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack) is a stroke. However, it is a stroke that goes away, in as much as a few minutes to as long as 24 hours. If a stroke persists longer than 24 hours, it is generally considered permanent, though most tias resolve in a few hours, and the longer that it persists, the less likely it is going to go away. Be seen immediately for a stroke. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of a "mini stroke"?

It varies.: A mini stroke typically refers to a transient ischemic attack which resolves on its own. There can be different symptoms, depending on the area affected. But unlike a stroke a TIA doesn't destroy brain cells or cause permanent disability. However, tias may recur and each TIA increases the risk of a subsequent stroke. You should talk to your doctor and get evaluated appropriately. ...Read more

Most : Most often, severe, throbbing, pressurelike headaches, with nausea or vomiting, and with sensitivity to light or sound or noise are migraines. Sometimes migraines follow a period of aura consisting of vision changes, numbness or weakness. Sometimes the aura continues after the headache stops, but migraine aura should really be gone when the headache has gone away. Migraine headaches can be diagnosed when there is a pattern of these sorts of headaches. Some headaches feel like migraine, but they are symptoms of an underlying, serious problem. Problems that can cause headaches that feel like migraine include subarachnoid hemorrhage, aneurysms, infections, and others. New headaches, headaches that aren't like those that have been experienced in the past, headaches that go from 0 to terrible over a few seconds, and headaches associated with neurological symptoms such as numbness are all reasonable reasons to see a doctor promptly. ...Read more

Please check with your healthcare provider and get the help you need, but be calm and don't worry as much. ...Read more

How long should I wait after catheter ablation for svt to smoke weed again or should I just quit? I smoked one hit and felt symptoms of a mini stroke

Quit: Sudden loss of consciousness, altered mental status, or sudden onset lack of coordination are signs of a stroke. The term "mini stroke" is often used to describe such symptoms when they are transient. However, these episodes are still red flags that a major stroke will follow. If using marijuana contributes to irregular heart rhythm and stroke, then it is reasonable to quit. ...Read more

Call 911; chew aspir: A stroke is an emergency, can be halted or reversed if treated within the 1st minutes or hours. The earlier treated, the higher the chance of a favorable outcome.

How do you know if you had a mini stroke?

Misconception: What people often call a "mini-stroke" is a transient ischemic attack which is just that-transient, it doesn't leave disability or imaging evidence. A non-cortical stroke in the white matter can go un-noticed until they add-up and cause memory loss and cognitive dysfunction. A cortical stroke, unless it was very small or in the front of the brain will usually cause some sort of symptom. ...Read more
