Are you with me?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have your doctors considered TIA as a cause of your symptoms?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

TIA = transient ischemic attacks?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let mek now.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

me know*

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I personally think that with your symptoms you should be evaluated by a neurologist because I would like that you should have TIA ruled out as a cause.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Sudden slumping on one side may indicate that, that part of the body has become a little weaker than normal which recovers in a few minutes time.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

All this is associated with transient ischemic attack.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In transient ischemic attack there is temporary blockage of one of the arteries of the brain which then open ups in a few minutes time.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

For the time the artery is blocked you experience weakness on that part of the body.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have more questions.

Sorry for my last message. I hadn't seem your answers. Occurrences seem to be tied to feeling stressed or anxious about being late for an appointment. I will discuss this again with my GP. Thanks.
