I think I had a mini stroke I had a major headache and severe pain in the back of my head and neck. I also had a very irrateble right eye everything went blurred and I could not focus on any detail also it waa like I had no side vision in my right eye like a semi circle was taken away. I suffer from severe high blood pressure and at the tim my bp was 200 over 135. They did a ct that was clear but did show my brain arteries were wider than normal not sure why also looked in my right eye and said it looked a little swollen in the back. I'm only 28 they said must be a migraine but I have never had one before I think it was a mini stroke does this sound like the symptoms and does a tia show up on a ct the next day.View Thread
