    TIA?

    On Sunday 9/30/2018, sitting down with a cold drink in a coffee place, I experienced something I have never felt before. My head started to feel weird and my vision was completely or at least it felt as if I was crossed eyed. I didn't know what was happening but I turned to my 11 year old daughter and asked if my eyes were crossed. She told me they were not. I was tempted to call 911 but I didn't because I was in a crowded place and figured this would pass. It did pass I'd say after about a minute or so. It was frightening and I saw an NP today and they took blood but didn't assign any other testing. I'm concerned this was a warning for a stroke.

    Hi read your post sounds like what happened to me a couple of times feeling weird in head vision messing with me second time I went to ER and they admitted me and after a dozen tests they found out through an MRI that I had had a mini stroke a TIA so just beware if it happens again get to the emergency room or a doctor quick

    RE: TIA?

    Yes, it very well may be!!! Find another doctor! I had a stroke 3 years ago and then I "thought" it passed. I went home and then in the middle of the night i had a full blown stroke! Now I'm paralyzed on my whole left side. When I had the first warning, the hospital emergency room doctor wanted me to stay over night for observation. I foolhardily rejected that idea. Boy, do I ever regret that decision!!! Because if they catch it within the FIRST THREE HOURS there is a protocol that they can use to stop the stroke and restore you to normalcy! Don't make my mistake and
    Ruin your life!
