Husband woke up with dizziness, vertigo, vomiting at 3 AM last week. B/P 225/120 ER said he did not have a stroke ( according to CT scan.Can't do MRI due to stents which he got for a 95% blockage to his heart 4 yrs ago.) Cardiologist switched BP meds and B/P going down well on that now.He' still very fatigued, difficulty with spacial perception, walking etc...The Nuero Doc can't see him till May 1st. Any idea what's up with all of this and what kind of treatment we should pursue?

I'm glad your husband's BP is coming down.

I am not a doctor, so I have no idea what could have happened.  Maybe a mini-stroke?   I just don't know, sorry.  Was he on BP meds BEFORE this happened?  What is he taking now?  

I'll keep him in my prayers...

Are there such things as  mini strokes, never heard of that.
He was on 20 mg of Lisinopril before, now something called tribenza and my unending home remedies stuff....(:

Yes, mini-strokes are called TIA's, which stands for transient ischemic attacks.  Blood flow gets temporarily blocked in the brain.

How is your husband feeling now?
