After going back into NSR on sat AF came back in the night had some strange feelings so went to GP this morning he thinks I may have had a small TIA have to have a carotid Doppler grrrr
Wots one of those
Like a small stroke
Transient ischeamic attack. In other words a mini stroke.
Yes but will wait and see what tests say fingers crossed
It's definitely best to get it checked out. Are you on an anticoagulant? Wishing you well. Keep us posted.
Yes iam anticoagulated have been for three yeArs will keep you posted
Are you not still on anticoagulant?
Yes bob iam thank goodness
Glad you getting tested.
I'll be ok
A carotid doppler only identifies TIAs caused by narrowing of the carotid artery, not strokes caused by AF. You need and MRI scan for that but it's probably too late now, as a TIA is transient by nature.
GP said that it was to late for MRI he just wants
to make sure arteries are clear
OK that's fine. It's worth taking every precaution you can to prevent a recurrence of course - controlling weight, sugar levels, BP, exercise every day, etc. The best of luck and I hope you do well.
I recently had a tia and am now left worried that it may happen again. So far, no reason found for it...
