Over the past 3 years I've had multiple TIA's. This past week I've had two. One slight one pretty bad. Both last 45 minutes. The Neurologist at ER said not to come on unless they last more than 45 minutes or longer. I don't want to many lasting effects from these or have them progress into full blown strokes.
Any thoughts on my next plan of attack for my health. I live in Florida and am thinking of going to a large teaching hospital to see if there is a source of why I'm having these and if there is something I can do.
I have balance issues now and am trying to catch up on my sleep as they do leave me tired. Any help/thoughts would be appreciated. I do try and lead a busy full life so I will try and slow down some.View Thread
Thank you so much. I agree knowledge is the key. I'm trying to decide on which teaching hospital is the best one for me. I've done some research and am torn between IU Med CEnter and John Hopkins. They both have their advantages. Proximity to daughter is one key and ranking is another. Any thoughts?View Thread
