My wife had 2 TIAs in the early 2000s involving ocular migraine symptoms with peripheral vision loss. At the time MRIs showed a small brain scar or 2.
She recently had what we now know is an ocular migraine again & has since had MRA & MRI. We got the results today & there are no scars according to the neurologist. Is it possible for TIA scars to heal?
Also, she has been prescribed Fioricet for her migraines (infrequent) over the last few decades. The neurologist today said that would be fine, but mentioned a beta-blocker. She did not enjoy the side affects in the past, so declined. Is there anything better, without hormone involvement available that would also have little side affects?
