In a brain MRI last March 2008, it showed I had a tiny stroke. Is that considered a TIA stroke. I had no idea I had a stroke also is a TIA stroke considered a old infarct?
Most receintly, I have been having many "cat naps" within a 3-4 hour period during the day. Numberous time I waking up not even remembering what day it is, and feel very dazed and somewhat confused. Sometimes I also have blurred vision and my legs feel weak. Are these all signs of another possible TIA and do I need to get check out for a stroke?
