Hello and hope you are doing well.

His symptoms could be side effects of the medications. Therapy for TIAs is focused on improving the blood supply with blood thinners like Plavix and controlling high risk factors like diabetes or hypertension. Please consult your doctor for the side effects; he may change the dosage or the medications.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The tingling sensations he is having are otherwise referred to as neuropathy. It is a disorder of the nerves which causes numbness, tingling, unusual sensations and sometimes pain. Diabetes Mellitus can cause neuropathy. Hope diabetes has been ruled out. Other causes like vitamin deficiencies, alcohol consumption and certain medications can cause neuropathy. So, besides his medications vitamin deficiency could also cause neuropathy, so vitamin supplements will help.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
