Stroke

01/22/2006

Question:

I had a heart attack March 17, 2004 and had a steent placed in the LAD. On December 7th of this year, I had a stroke. I had been having some dizzy spells for quite sometime prior, but I assumed it was from the medications I was taking. After the stroke though the dizzy spells went away, but in the last couple of days, I have had them again, also with just a quick sharp little spike of a pain in my head. I am just wondering if I should wait? Don`t want burden anyone with questionable things. Thanks

Answer:

To have these symptoms properly diagnosed, you will need to see a health professional. I am not comfortable answering further without being able to take a full history and performing a full physical examination.  Please contact your doctor as soon as possible.
