You had a chance to go to a doctor right then, you should have . You are not pregnant?, skipped a meal, got dehydrated? It happened to me because of dehydration. But I'm a male and you have other factors.

I am 82. I fell in the yard while watering flowers. On June11, I fell directly on my face. I do not remember falling until the second before impact. I saw green grass, heard a thud, moved my head as sunglasses nose piece cut my nose in 3 places. My garden hose was on spray setting and was spraying on my body. I laid there several minutes, then checked to see if I had anything broken. My face began to swell as I hit my right eye socket, right chest area. I began to roll toward the garden hose reel container, when I neighbor appeared. He got me a lawn chair si I could pull myself up and sit down. My nose had blood clots hanging and neighbor s cleaned me. My doctor and I cannot find a cause of my falling. I had ekg, neurology exam, and a 24 hour EKG. I am going to PT and slowly getting better. My DPT, is a doctor of PT. she uses Grafton tools and message and exercises. Next week she will do dry needles treatment. I do not remember falling, Ido not remember if I was dizzy. We are trying to figure out why I fell. It was 1:30 PM. I did not trip, I just found myself face down and had fallen Any suggestions?

3 days ago I had heat rise from the neck to the head and numbness on my left side of the face and arm. I went to the hospital and after a few tests, the doctors concluded that I had a TIA. After coming home from the hospital, I'm still getting some numbness and tiggling in my face and arms. Is this normal to happen after a TIA?

I have suddenly noticed a taste of blood in my mouth and now am having stabbing pain in the right side of my head/temple area. I m a little worried because once when I was younger I had the same thing and then developed numbness on one side of my body with vision impairment along with not being able to understand the words that people were saying to me. I was told later that I may have had a mini-stroke. I am 40 years old and have been having a lot of stress lately. I don t want to suddenly have a stroke like my great-grandmother.

Very infrequently I get a momentary (no more than a second or two) sudden loss of balance and equilibrium. I do not lose consciousness. If they attached me to a monitor to measure brain waves they may have to wait weeks for it to recur. Is this something i should be worried about? Is it a mini stroke?
