Hi I'm a 29 year old female, Last week a guy at work had a mini stroke, and his symptoms and diagnosis got me thinking about something that happened to me last May
I was out at a camping event in the Texas heat and at one point towards the evening I started feeling extremely dizzy and confused and was throwing up a lot, and felt like my brain had forgotten how to interact with my body, and after some of that had passed and I got back into a safe place at camp, I was having a lot of trouble finding my words and getting them out right.
At the time, I'd mostly attributed it to the heat, dehydration, and some other things that were going on at the moment, but now I'm wondering if it could have been a mini-stroke.
Since this was almost a year ago now, if I went to the doctor and asked for an mri or something, would this be likely to show up one way or another?
