Irene, with headache, blurred vision and your other symptoms , you should seek urgent attention. These signs require evaluation for stroke. Please respond to this email so that I know that you will seek immediate help.

Blurry vision went away.
Expert:  Dr. Tom replied 1 year ago.
Irene, That is good news that the blurry vision went away, but your symptoms of headache, dizziness and nausea could still be TIA or stroke indicators. Please ask for urgent evaluation. Do you have any question about this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. What is urgent evaluation? Could it be macular (sp?)degeneration?

Expert:  Dr. Tom replied 1 year ago.

Irene,

 

Yours are not symptoms of macular degeneration. They are symptoms associated with a TIA or Stroke. Urgent means getting checked in the ER.

 

Dose that make sense?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I hate to cause a big drama, but I guess I should go. Blood pressure is 163 over 110. Heartbeat 83 per minute and I'm just sitting here.

Expert:  Dr. Tom replied 1 year ago.

Irene,

 

Taking care of obvious medical issues is no drama!! You have issues that need to be checked immediately. That is what EMS is for.

 

Please let me know that you are going to call for help.

Hi Irene,

Please let me know how things went at the Cape Cod Hospital emergency room.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They ruled out stroke. I had Cat scan with dye. They could see no cause. I had an ocular migrane, they said. Also did heart checks. Came home after tests, must follow up with neurologist.
Expert:  Dr. Tom replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for that information. I was very worried for you and I'm relieved that there was no CVA. Ocular migraines can have many types of symptoms. Best wishes for your further work up. I bet you will be fine now that a diagnosis is established. Call on me again if you have new, eye related symptoms or questions.
