    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Had 2 glasses of wine, was hungry and tired.Not unusual. This particular night my blood pressure was 179/98. Could that have been any of the reason I became disoriented and cant remember the event?

    That is possible.

    You might have had a TIA, basically a mini-stroke.

    Or there might be something else going that caused both the disorientation and the high BP.

    Whatever, it certainly seems to some to get checked out.
