Brief Answer:
Further evaluation required

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.
This may be nothing,but I suggest further evaluation since it may indicate in some cases transitory ischemic attacks so called TIA and rarely even sign of brain aneurysm. So you should do neurological examination and head CTscan for a start. Wish you good health. Regards

Brief Answer:
TIA means sudden decrease in blood flow in carotid or intracranial vessels.

Detailed Answer:

TIA means that there was sudden decrease in blood flow in carotid or intracranial vessels. It may happen if there is atherosclerosis of carotid vessels or spasm of brain vessels. MRI should rule this out and you should not be afraid of it.

Hi, I m a 22 year old female. I smoke cigarettes and I started smoking crystal meth regularly about a year and a half ago. 9 months ago I started using meth intraveneously as well, but not as often as I would smoke it. In November of last year I decided to get clean, and that lasted until the middle of February, of this year. I was not using as much as I used to before I got clean. About 5 days ago I did a shot of meth with a friend, it was about the amount that I used to do when I d shoot it. It was good dope, my friend and I both felt very, very high. But I ended up feeling a bit weird, and the I started having trouble breathing and my heart started beating very rapidly. I was dizzy and my body was tingling. I decided to go to the hospital because I thought I was having a heart attack. At the hospital they did an EKG reading and gave me some Ativan. The results said my heart was fine, and I had just had a panic attack. 2 days later, in my hometown, I injested some meth orally with the same friend. It was about a half gram. About twenty minutes later I started feeling high, but almost instantly felt the same symptoms from the night I shot up. Hard to breathe, chest pains, numb tingly feelngs in my left arm and left side of body, ect. I tried to calm myself down and convince myself it was just a panic attack, but then my head started feeling like there were intense ammounts of pressure inside of it, crushing my brain almost, and then I couldn t hear anything, and I got tunnel vision. I fell back on the couch, and my friend called me an ambulance. I thought I was having a stroke, heart attack, or brain aneurysm. At the hospital they gave me an oxygen mask, took some blood, and then put me on an IV with Ativan and a saline flush. They did another EKG, and again everything was fine, so I was released and went home. Around midnight the same things started happening again, and again I was convinced I was dying. This time I hadn t used any meth so I was certain something was actually wrong with me. Went to the hospital, same process, oxygen, Ativan, ekg, everything is fine. Yesterday I had two more attacks, and another today, and they just keep getting worse and worse. The doctors are telling me it s anxiety or a panic disorder, mixed with stimulant side effects because of the meth. I m not using meth currently, I am afraid to, but I am seriously worried that I did a bad shot or something, and I ve done some damage and it will eventually kill me. It all began with that shot, I ve never experienced anything like this in all of my usage of meth. I am very, very scared, and no one will take my concerns seriously, it seems. Please help. How can I check for blood infections, or anything that may be actually wrong? Oh also, they gave me a prescription for Ativan, and also Zoloft now. Good, or bad?
