I have been having a different form of what appears to be TIA's. I am absolutely fine then I get acute onset of vertigo and when o say vertigo I mean like vertigo on acid everything is spinning so fast I'm look at the floor but somehow seeing the ceiling it's insane vertigo, anyway I generally have 3 to 10 seconds to get myself safe before I fall. The dizzy makes me naucious but no vomiting. I start loosing use or having extreme weakness n one side or the other, usually the left it usually subsides and I am mostly functional after words. I am having these multiple times a week out of the blue. I am having more an more difficulty with my thinking process and have barley been able to work. It is seriously effecting my income and demolished what little freedom I had. When I look online I keep ending up with various articles of TIA's in the stem area! I don't like the sound of that but I believe it's what is happening as a couple times it came on after looking around for something, turning my head. I also have developed a lesser range in my neck turning on my right side! I'm tuff and take things as they come but these are rather scarry and disturbing. My INR has remained in the 3.2/4.3 range as far as lab test show I still trying to get a coagucheck thru my ins I used to have one but ins changed and have not had one for almost two years. I am degrading quickly. Any suggestion? I have told my GP but I feel she has grown to used to me being weird and documents but no knew test of anything. I am tryn n to get to see by diagnostic hematologist he is the closest thing there is to a specialist and it's a 4 hour drive one way plus three or longer hour wait. By then I'm so exhausted I have to stay in a hotel and that plus food for me a driver makes it really expensive for me to see him but I know I have to find away. Any suggestions I am about 46 (memory so bad I don't know my age). Anyone have the same problems or answers for it. Last time was Sunday and I made it to the couch but was stuck laying with my left arm twisted behind me intil I could get my daughter attention. Usually I make a repeated banging and they know I need help had hard time finding a spot hard enough on couch to make banging sound but did find a way. My daughter is getting me and alarm bomb so getting attention when I need help will be easier. But this has to stop. Any info or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank u from sound rebel 71
