Subject: BS: strokes - warning signs

I recently had a "headache" which lasted less than a minute and was excrutiatingly sore. The pain went from the right side of my forehead to the crown, in a straight line.

Afterwards I was fine.

After looking on the internet I fear it might have been a "warning stroke" . I have a doctor's appointment, but I wondered if any mudcatters have an advice meanhwile ?

Hopeless to guess, kp. There's so much goes on in there. I had something similar maybe 15 years ago, very sharp, very concentrated and only for a minute or so - quite unlike any other hedache I've ever had, including migraine. It left no obvious after-effect, and a few yers after that I had a scan re something else, and nothing showed. If it was a minor stroke, or TIA, look for other effects: slight loss of control over one side of the mouth, or of a limb; or minor cognitive/memory effects - inability to bring the right word to mind, forgetting why you started a sentence when you're halfway through it, etc. But if you never lost consciousness it was very probably nothing of any significance.

kp,
When you made the appointment, did you tell your symptoms to your Doc? Do you have other factors that might make stroke a possibilty, like high blood pressure, or family history? Were there any other symptoms? I would say if you told the Doc what happened, and he or she did'nt tell you to get straight to the ER, then they don't feel a stroke is the cause.

When I had my stroke last year, my first symptom was a headache just like you describe BUT it was quickly followed by other signs, like weakness in my right side. If you have had other signs like weakness or confusion, get yourself to the ER so they can check you out.
