How is it possible for a brain not to be able to perceive time after a mini stroke. Please help no one can figure out my problem It's been 14 months.
While it's uncommon: to have isolated "time blindness," it certainly can happen, as it did with you. A primitive part of the brain, the thalamus, acts as a relay station for our thoughts, emotions & memory. Damage to a specific part of the thalamus can result in an inability to sense the passage of time. The technical term is "chronotaraxis.." A neurologist may be able to help you find ways to adapt.

I was told i had a mini stroke, that affected 2 centimeters of my frontal brain. What does this mean?
Radiographic finding: Sometimes when your physician refers to a "mini"stroke they are referring to an abnormality seen on ct scan or mri. This may reflect an area of stroke that has already happened. You may not have been aware of it because it was in too small a geographic area or in an area that is neurologically silent (ie. Frontal lobe). It should be followed and long term stroke prevention measures implemented. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Especially looking for acth secreting tumors given your history there are other types that present with generalized symptoms but a thorough endocrine evaluation should establish this in addition a very refined mri. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Brain MRI findings. Tiny nonspecific periventricular and subcortical white matter. Possiblities mini strokes, vasculaties, ms. I shuffle my feet & drop?
Nonspecific finding: White matter changes that are nonspecific are sometimes over reported or under-reported on MRI studies. They may be misread and really suggest MS, they may be a finding with no clinical relevance. Usually it is the latter. It sounds like the brain MRI did not help that much. So you shuffle your feet and drop? What do you mean by drop? Do you have numbness? Why was the brain MRI done? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Diplopia:-mri brain isch chngs & infarcts. Now thirsty esp at night & constant salty taste in mouth. Could mini stroke be cause or what else?
Yes, no, maybe so: "mri brain isch chngs & infarcts" isn't specific enough. The isch chngs & infarcts can't be just anywhere. Diplopia from strokes tends to improve at least partly; is yours? As for thirsty esp at night & constant salty taste in mouth: Strokes don't cause that. My guess is it's a med side effect, maybe the bisoprolol. Avoid "ministroke"; the term is so poorly defined it's essentially meaningless. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had brain mri. Dr said it shows small strokes that are common in migraine. Said don't worry gave me b vitamin. Freaking out. is this common?
This can happen: Yes, studies now do show that migraine sufferers do have little areas of scar tissue, believed to be areas of previous loss of oxygen due to constriction of blood vessels due to migraine attacks. As of today, there is no proof that this leads to major strokes in the future. I hope this eases your mind some. ...Read more
