Ok I have a couple questions and you all are way more educated on this than any doctor I have seen thus far! I went to my doctor because I am having all the symptoms of a mini stroke. I was already taking 225mg's of aspirin when this started so I started taking 225mg 3 times a day rather than one. Honestly I did that just to be safe until the dr could get me in but it worked! My symptoms stopped. If my arm started tingling and going numb I would pop an aspirin and within half an hour the symptoms subsided! So I sfinally got to the dr and she told me my INR was normal. Can you have mini strokes with a normal inr or does it have to be something else going on? Then I told her until I could see her I was taking 675mg's a day of aspirin just to play it safe and she said if you take more than 225mg's studies show it dont make a difference but how can this be true when my tingling and numbness would subside after I took more aspirin? Then my last question is since I was taking 675mg's daily how bad would my inr have been before hand? I know the last question probably cant be answered. It just makes me wonder!!!
