Default Mini Stroke

FYI. While laying under Apatchy checking out brake light switch I suffered a mini stroke. Couldn't speak for a few hours. Thankfully no permanent damage. Feeling fine now but that did get my attention.

Wow! Glad you're ok. Be sure to check it out with your doctor.
Always take one aspirin at bedtime (with doctor's ok).

Lawson, I saw you post on Facebook about this. Glad all is okay. Best to take things easy, and as someone else said, don't get too wound up on political debates :-)

Lawson, that roll of toilet paper is getting smaller. If you use your finger more, that roll might could last longer.

Seriously, the womens need to get on your Dr to fix up your innards. We need you here, dirty finger or not.

I had the same issue.But they did not find anything. The DR. said it fixed itself. Go figure.
If it would have happened when I was sleeping I never would have known it happened.So now I take a Full strength aspirin and dont worry about it. Worry is the worst thing you can do.

Lawson, also saw on F/book. Glad you're o.k. . Father in law had a mild stroke 10 years ago. It slowed him down. Before he'd wear out two men working with him. He just turned 86 today. when he goes into the VA he complains he gets tired easier than he used to. They think it might have something to do with him being 86. He doesn't want to hear that!

For years Doctors like myself took Aspirin assuming that as it was good for people with cardiovascular disease (including mini strokes) it was good in preventing events in healthy people as well . 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

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.

Lawson, I know what your going thru. Last October I was working on my computer and all of a sudden I thought I had a screen problem. I soon realized that I couldn't see out of my left eye. It wasn't dark, like holding a hand over your eye, but opaque, like holding a piece of gauze over it. I called my eye doctor and went right to his office and he immediately sent me to a specialist. Turns out I had a stroke in my left eyeball. Thankfully, later that evening my eyesight slowly started to return. After a few days my vision returned to normal. Both the eye specialist and my other doctors call me "the miracle man". It's very sobering to leave an eye specialists office thinking over the next few months that I would need a glass eye. Believe me I thank God every day and realize how precious life is.

Aspirin does not "thin" the blood. Aspirin only interferes with the blood clotting mechanism thereby slowing clot formations that cause strokes and heart attacks .

81 mg daily is the dosage. That also means that just one aspirin is needed for a headache if you previously needed two.

Let's get real here guys : I don't expect to get early Ford advice on a brain surgery forum; I don't know how some of you would accept medical advice presented on an Old Ford Forum.

It is just a recounted real life experience. Just like speed shifting a 39 Ford Transmission.
Or your second Divorce.

Excellent advice tubman--I would bet that when you were a kid you read the story where the little boy finally said " The King has no clothes on "

OMG! Hadn't thought of those days for years! Speed shift with the gas pedal and no clutch, and slam it into second! (Preceding my first transmission rebuild)

Hi Lawson; When I read mini stroke I thought you were talking about a small cubic inch increase. I hope this gave you a smile. Kidding with you reminds me of the old forum and Shelly, Craig.
