Mini stroke

Hello I was wondering if anyone who has had a mini stroke experinisesed this Wed at 1 am I got up to use the rest roomand all of sudden I had a change feeling in the front of my head and then I has a really warm feeling go from glad bladder area to my stomach to rush through my body and then my right eye had a hard time focusing in the dark so I turned the light in and looked in the mirror and my right eye sight was blurring and my right pupil was dilating weird. It lasted like for a few mins so I feel back to sleep and the next day I felt fine but still have the blurry vision I can still see fine it's just a bit blurry. So today I was driving at 930 am and the same thing happend and now my right eye Is a bit blurry. My eyes feel like they are straining and I have to blink a lot and there is a lot of pressure behind my eyes my forehead and at the bridge of my nose. My mom had a major stroke 8 years ago so it scares me a bit I don't have insurance until Jan 1 so I am trying to avoid the er if possible. I am 42 a smoker and probably drink more then I should. I have looked online and of course it has you thinking the worst so I was just trying to find out from word of mouth from someone who has actually had a mini stroke

Although a stroke can manifest as a  transient visual disturbance, that is relatively unusual.  But something is going on, and you best have it checked out.  Anything having to do with vision is VERY important.  You cannot be turned down for medical assistance in the event of possible blindness because of financial reasons.  If it happens?  Good!  Take them to court!  (Just make sure that you sue for the cost of a chauffer).
