Hi, I am concerned about the number of TIA's (strokes) I have been experiencing in the last few years (since 2004), approx. 14 so far. I had a V.P shunt inserted in 1992, for hydrocephalus, which I believe I had since 1958 (undiagnosed).

Also now I am experiencing abdominal discomfort in the lower right side. I have taken it up with my doctor but he has yet to do an examination let alone order any diagnosis at the hospital. The pain is not constant but occaissional, and when I experience them they are debilatating.

Do you smoke or drink alcohol? Have you been having TIA's or strokes? You mention both, but they are different...Have you had any injuries or trauma history? DOM
