I was a bit misled by the title. The Doc had a TIA episode which is a stroke warning. I have only read the first couple of posts.
I went through this in 2005, only they let me have a stroke during the night, while in Emergency and I was paralysed on my right side after the
stroke. What you described was similar to a TIA attack, which I also experienced before the stroke.
What I wanted to say is that people should pay very close attention to their blood pressure. If that is above 130 with any regularity, you would be
wise to take action before pills become mandatory and a stroke is a definite possibility.
I have lost about 40 lbs, now at 5'11" and 210 lbs. My BP is steady at 120 - 130, but the effects of the stroke are permanent. The effect of a TIA
episode does not last, like a stroke.
So take care of your health. It is all about what you put into your body, that you will have to deal with later and believe me, later comes sooner
than you want.
PS: I had that stroke in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.
