    Cluster Strokes
    NanaWandaLedford posted:
    I was by a doctor in Jan., after he looked at my "CT Scans", that I am having cluster strokes. Until he said that I had never heard of those. Cluster Migrauines, yes, but not strokes. My father passed away from strokes, so to say I was surprised, well you can imagine. I have been good until the last week or so, and it seem as though, excuse the expression, but all hell has broken loose. I had a sleep study done on Wed. And barley remember getting home Thursday morn. I have done nothing but sleep, not even eat, and for me, that is unusual. The doctor, did not change anything I'm doing, except to take an aspirin a day. Of course, I am taking 2 different kinds of blood pressure meds a day anything. B/P doing well. Anybody out there that can give me any ideas as to what might be going on in this brain of mine. Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if what my neurologist & your doctor have said to each of us is the same or not. But according to my neurologist I Finally found out that I was have TIAs for over 20 yrs due to my small vessel disease of my brain. Would be willing to compare symptomology with you to see if they are the same.
