Hi slbg1960,

The only way to be sure if you had or are having a mini stroke is to be examined by a doctor. Unfortunately we cannot diagnose anyone here on the board. If what you think you are experiencing is a mini stroke, I strongly urge you to call and schedule an appointment with your doctor. While they don't cause permanent brain damage, mini strokes are important signs that you cannot ignore . Is there someone who can go with you to the doctor and would limit your chances of having a panic attack? Please let us know how you are doing.

Best wishes,
