Mini stroke, chest pain, pain behind eyes, neck. MRI prescribed. Emergency situation?

I have had a mini stroke (suspected) a week ago and now have chest pains, pain in the back of my neck and eyes. I am wondering if this is something I should go to the ER for I was told to go in for a MRI last week but the place that does them told me I had to wait a WEEK. This thursday is when the MRI will take place and I have been getting more & more symptoms as time progresses.

Stroke is a condition where the blood supply to a part of the brain is cut off . And a very closely related entity is what is called as Transient ischemic attack ..

In this condition the symptoms are relieved in a day .

Since you have not mentioned what symptoms you had when you were diagnosed with a stroke , i suggest you be aware of the following symptoms which are suggestive of stroke

1. unbearable head ache
2. weakness or paralysis of any of the limbs
3. any other neurological deficit like weakness of facial muscles
4. dooling of saliva , inability to swallow , inability to breathe
5. loss of consciousness
7. visual disturbances

In case your chest pain does not settle you will need to immediately consult your doc and get an E C G done .
