Diagnosed with anemia and prescribed prednisone. Had TIA after breakfast. What is wrong?
My mother-in-law age 92, diagnosed with anemia and prescribed prednisone . She had two TIA after breakfast two weeks apart at about same time in a.m. Called 911, she went to ER they checked her CT Scan , blood tests, all normal. Her doctors says anemia patients may have episodes like that. Is this true, it is very frightening.
If the test results are normal then nothing to bother. Check for any carotid blocks by doing carotid dopplers. common cause for TIA. carotids are the blood vessels in the neck which supply to the brain.
