    Is it a TIA or a possible nerve inflammation

    I went to ER after I felt tingling/ numbness on the entire left half of my face. I was discharged later that night with having a "Transient ischemic attack". A CT scan and MRI were taken and reports according to the doctors were normal. They have now started me on daily aspirin. I have had 4 episodes of transient pain with tingling and numbness within the last 3-4 days. My questions are that: 1.

    Loss of balance, tingling on left side.

    18 months ago, I had a stroke. Since then, I have constant tingling on my left side, from head down to toes. It is not painful but very annoying.

    Spironalactone Side Effects

    My Dr. put me on spironalactone for my hirstuism. First it was 50mg daily and I had no problem and no change. Now he put me on 100mg daily. For the past few days I have had a headache and numbness under my tongue. It's very strange and I'm not sue if it's from the meds or something else. Im not sure if I should continue these pills or if this is completely unrelated and need to see a Dr.

    How can you tell if a person is having a mini-stroke?

    My mother-in-law occasionally sounds like she's been drinking. Slurred speech, totally forgets what happened for a part of that day. She gets upset if I mention that she is not "acting like her usual self", that something seems wrong and I asked her once if she had been drinking which she swore she had not been, and then she was very upset with me for asking her that. I believe she has had a minor stroke in the past. Could this be happening again when she is like this? I am worried....

    Chronically elevated homocystine

    I am 26 year old male, sport active no chronically diseases. No family history of heart disease or stroke I discovered I have elevated homocystine 23,44 I used b vitamins for 2 months each day and it decreased to 15,22. Then I used it every 2 or 3 days and after 1,5 month it dropped to 14,7. Do I need to supplement further, the studies have not shown it reduces the chance of stroke, so what should I do from here?
