Brain MRI

My doctor said I had a mini stroke. I had a cat scan and blood test that showed a lesion on my brain. My doctor the had me get an MRI brain scan which his nurse said came back normal. Then why do I still feel like my brain has been scrambled ,and I just don't feel good overall?

Thank you. Even though the MRI came up as normal, my question is did I have a TIA (mini stroke). My doctor said he is sure I had 3 TIA's.
Thank you for your concern. This is very scary for me. My whole family has died of heart disease, I am the last of the family and the youngest child.

It sounds like it could very well be effects from the stroke, like Paula said. You could talk to your doctor about therapy for speech or language problems. This could include difficulties in problem solving or planning, if you feel you are having such problems.

I suggest you talk to your doctor and try to tell him/her as specifically as possible what types of problems you are having. There may be resources available to help you regain what you lost.

Best wishes,

That would be due to the stroke. Strokes affect your brain and body! If you had a stroke then it will take time to recover, just give it some time. I know it is frustrating and I know you want to get back to normal give it some time and work hard at it.

Good luck,
