Mini-stroke?

Oct 24, 2010 - 0 comments

Transient Ischemic Attack
Symptoms can include: numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination.

I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system. I may need to go outside of the network to get "real" treatment, not just some Dr calling me crazy and saying my depression is an issue. i have not have a depression problem for years. This is not depression. I am sad after having this go on for over a month now & worried, but me feeling this did not cause it.

Even the Neuro sx Dr told me that the migraines & symptoms are related to the cerebellar tonsillar ectopia, but he did not recommend sugery just yet since i am only at 3.5mm. I have to treat each symptom individually right now, but i have not been given anything to help me with pain or the other symptoms. I am trying not to worry, but i cannot do much like this. It is hard to type (this is killing me to type), but i have to at work & school, no way around it.

So tired of feeling shaky all the time & all the other symptoms that are constant, not just every once in awhile like the headache pain, but all the time. I can't concentrate, losing time of thought, blah, blah, blah
