They kept me for a week and did not find anything which led to more tests. Which did not find anything more. And like i said The Neurologist said it fixed itself.

Sounds like you did everything you could. Glad you got through it with nothing more than a scare.

Kind of. like diagnosing Flathead problems. Expert A says it is a B problem.Expert B says it is an A problem, and then it turns out to be something completely different.

The studies actually show that aspirin in healthy people causes more problems than it prevents, So most have us have stopped taking it , However if you have cardiovascular disease its a no brainer . It works by preventing your platelets clumping over the break in your cholestrol plaque and blocking the artery. People who present with chest pain /possible heart attack get an aspirin to chew on before they leave my surgery in an ambulance for hospital , In hospital they may or may not get other powerful blood thinning agents to dissolve their clot or even emergency blood vessel stenting -Karl

Hey, Lawson -

All the best to ya.

If the Dr tells you to try a GANO hose filter (or a piece of nylon stocking) at least you'll know he's one of us!

Lawson, Your Dr. will, should, put you on Plavix, a platelet anticlumper- probably the cause of your mini stroke. But then who listens to an old Medic like me?

I had several of those, and then had a scan of my head. Besides sawdust, they found a almost clogged artery in my neck. The VA hospital did a good job repairing it. Doctor said it was going to cause a major stroke if it were not fixed.
