I had a TIA 2 weeks ago with no after effects except that I am dizzy and feel like I'm going to have another stroke occasionally. It happens suddenly and I went to ear doctors because I feel like I have fluid and pressure in my right ear (the same side of my body that was hit during the stroke) but no Doctor can see anything. I had no risk factors prior to the stroke and have never done drugs. I have had an EEG, MRI, CAT scan and Carotid Artery Doppler as well as an ECG done with no damage shown or anything found. The problem is I have this dizzyness that can be severe at times and makes me feel like I am going to have another stroke. What can I do!?!?!?

  • How about yout relatives, have they had stroke/TIA or any heart conditions at a early age?No. No one with stroke this young. Only a grandfather who had one after a heart attack due to clots formed, but he was 74.

  • If you had a small stroke in a certain area of the brain,it could cause dizziness.Is it true vertigo because if it is,it;s more likely that you had a stroke.
