How to tell if a person may have had a mini stroke?
Nancye1962 posted:
I am trying to find out what the symptoms may be if a person may have had a mini-stroke? Or a stroke of any kind that may not have been totally disabling?
My husband has suddenly begun to display strange symptoms, just since yesterday. He is over-pronouncing his words, and seems to have involuntary arm and finger movements. All of this just started yesterday evening. He says he did not notice feeling any different yesterday while out mowing all day, and didn't have a headache or anything. I am afraid it was some sort of mini-stroke, or something else I do not know what it may be. Can anyone offer any suggestions on this, and what we might need to be doing?
Thank you.
