Karson sounds like you suffered a transient ischemic attack or TIA for short. They are usually caused by a decrease in blood flow to an area in the brain. Sometimes a TIA is a precursor to something much more serious, a stroke. I’m glad that you are home and the symptoms have resolved. Another cause could have also been a spike in blood pressure. Keep up with the meds and mend quickly.

Wow, take care of yourself, we need all the good LJ’s we have.

Do what the docs say and be careful. My dad had a similar incident – double vision – he then blacked out and fell. He hit his head pretty hard and was hospitalized for quite a while – at 75+ it is a very dangerous and scary proposition. Be careful if you feel another similar spell…don’t get up quickly…and sit down if standing…My dad was taking coumadin I believe.

Glad to know you have recovered. Next time even at a slightest hint take medical help and don’t panic. Rest is the first medicine so take it. Do gentle deep breathing by alternate nostril for about 5 minutes. That will improve oxygen supply to the brain. Keep us informed about the condition of your health.

I am glad to hear that you are going to be fine. And it is a good thing that you went to the hospital. While this was not apparently anything serious, too often we tend to put off going to the doctor/hospital in the hope that the problems that we are having will clear up rather than seeking immediate medical attention.

Keep us posted and try rest.

Karson-Good to hear your ok! Becareful with those blood clots man!
In Nov. of 2007 I went to the doctor because I had a simple cramp
in my leg I thought some muscle relaxers and a pain pill was all I needed.
hahahaha! Next thing I know my doctor rushed me to the ER and they
started hooking me up to all kinds of machines and giving me shots in the
stomach. Nine hours of ER and I finally stabilized and they put me in a room
for a week with a guy that snored like twelve grizzly bears.
Water pills, potassium, warfarin 6mg, bloodpressure pills, loritabs, and I don’t
remember how many other pills for the next six months and total bed rest.
Not a fun year for me at all! Thats how I learned to make jewelry I was going nuts
just laying in bed or sitting in a chair day in and day out. Anyway Blood clots are
scarey stuff man.
Take care of you!!!!!
