Three months ago, I believe my adult daughter had a mini stroke at Spin Class (horrible headache, coordination problems, she saw things melting, had trouble understanding simple questions and trouble with conveying her thoughts). She went to urgent care next to the gym and waited 45 minutes to be seen. She drank Gatorade while she waited. They told her they didn’t know what was wrong. They diagnosed it as syncope. She couldn’t drive. I picked her up and her sight was restored but it took her cognitive symptoms 1.5 weeks to go away. She saw a doctor at 2 weeks to obtain a referral to see a cardiovascular doctor and he told her she didn’t need to see one. He told her no more treatment was necessary. She lives with her husband and it has been 3 months and I asked her yesterday if she followed up, and she said no- based on her primary doctor’s words. Is this the proper protocol?
My daughter’s grandmother has had several mini strokes and some large ones. She is now in a nursing home. Her grandfather has been hospitalized for DVT’s. My daughter thinks I’m over reacting but I’m reading the symptoms and it points to a mini stroke. Should she make another appt for a referral or go with what her doctor stated and do nothing?
