I had a stroke like incident a few weeks ago. Numbness on my left side (arm) fatigue, slurred speach, dizziness. Went to the er and they said they would call it a tia. I had an incident like this 4 years ago while pregnant with my son and they classified it as a tia as well. I am not pregnant. I had a hysterectomy last January due to heavy menses that left me anemic all the time.. Not anemic since the hysterectomy
The hospital and neurologist did cat scan, eeg, mri, doppler of heart and neck arteries, xrays. No ms and no brain tumor.. I am only 36 abd generally pretty healthy except I used to smoke at the time of the stroke like event.. The dr's say there is no reason for me to have this.. I have low bp, low chloesterol, Blood checked out fine. I am in good physical shape. My husband and I lost our health insurance recently, this is already costing a fortune (money we surely don't have) I want to add a stupid for note on this. Before each stroke like event I had a line of cysts up my back prior to the event on the left side. (the effected side) Any info or help anyone can provide would be so very helpful. I truly really need to know why
