I saw my Dr. last week and related an experience that I had a few weeks ago. I was lying in bed reading one of my favorite things to do and I suddenly had a sensation that I really can't describe when I stood up I felt lightheaded and when my wife came in she asked if I was okay and I couldn't respond to her immediately I asked her to get me a cold seven up I sat down and I began to feel better. I had been taking warfarin but having a difficult time staying in the proper range. My Dr. said it sounded like TIA and Monday next I will be having a brain scan and a carotid scan as well. I have since changed to elaquis hoping that It will do the job for me. I will be 82 in October. I have stage 3 heart failure and chronic diastolic cardiomyopathy. I am still active trying to walk at least a mile and a half to 2 miles though it it is getting more difficult to do. In Jan. 2014 I had an AV Node ablation so I am completely dependent on my pacemaker. Just wondering if there members here that have had TIA and how it effected them.
