Had what the Drs said was a TIA caused by high blood pressure. I go to the gym 5 out of 7 days. Eat semi healthy.  When I went in I couldn't get a good breath, my vision was blurry, I was very dizzy, couldn't walk and the right side of my face felt like I couldn't move it. I couldn't even get a word out to explain my symptoms. I was scared to death and I still am. After an over night stay and all test cleared from the cardiologist and neurologist I was releasedI had to go back the very next day for the same symptoms and those discharge papers said anxiety. There is no way out of the blue I all of a sudden have anxiety. I had never experienced that before. I would love to hear your story. I realize I am very lucky and am sorry to sound so unappreciative. I am terrified!!!

    I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. As difficult as it may be , Take a deep breathe and collect yourself . Extra anxiety is not good.  So they diagnosed you with a TIA? What did they do to determine this ? MRI , CT scan ? We’re you put on medications? I’m not a medical professional but am a stroke survivor who was in perfect health before the episode. Anxiety is totally normal but the way I’m understanding what you wrote is that doctors believe your latest symptoms are anxiety based and not TIA based??  I’m a firm believer that if you don’t feel the medical care you’re receiving is aduquate, you must get a second opinion. You deserve clear, complete answers. Also, if you have someone who can accompany you to doctor, that person can take notes and process information without getting emotional.  good luck and always speak up if you’re confused by guidance you’re receiving
