may have had a TIA over the wkend. On Saturday temporarily lost sight in left eye for about 2-3 mins. After that felt fine. On Sunday pm thought I might pass out ears felt like pressure when plane takes off and felt unbalanced. Now couple of hours later feel bit tired and slightly queasy. No other signs and I take apixaban and beta blockers, so haven’t bothered with hospital.
Hi @cutler662 - please please please seek medical advice.
My partner had a TIA at the end of April and the subsequent investigations showed he has carotid artery stenosis, thus putting him at risk of a stroke. He’s having surgery on Tuesday to (hopefully) unblock one of them.
What I’m saying is that you might think you don’t need to see a doctor but you don’t know whether there’s an underlying cause of what was possibly a TIA.
@cutler662 if you think you may have had a TIA it’s really important to seek urgent medical attention. Please get checked over & hope you’re feeling better soon xx
Thanks I’ll talk to my GP tomorrow. I had a small stoke at end of March and all scans and tests were all clear.
Hi @cutler662 , that should be even more reason to get it checked out urgently, as other say!
Doc and hospital say only a TIA. I’m on medication they recommend so just monitor and report if happens again.
Hi @cutler662 I’m with all the others, definitely, definitely mention this to your medical professionals asap and get yourself checked out.
