I am wondering if anyone has had stroke like symptoms and the Dr's say it is psychological?

      @Crazymind no the symptoms are the migraine, it doesn't always come with pain. look up hemiplegic migraines, that may be what you're experiencing, but they can be difficult to detect or diagnose

      @Lightening I actually had a new provider that was thinking that I was predispotioned to TIA until they went through my medical records and he switched his attitude real quick. @Wise they tried that also but I don't always have a migraine with them. I didn't even get migraines until 3 yrs ago when I had my first one that the original dx was TIA and have had migraines pretty bad. There is not always a migraine present. The last one I had I was working on a Neuro floor there was a nurse and the team leader that said it was a stroke this time in May.

      it may be a migraine rather than a stroke. I get migraines that mimic a stroke and stress can absolutely trigger those. there are very specific symptoms physicians look for to determine the likelihood that a stroke has occurred, a stroke is highly unlikely, especially if you've had multiple episodes of these symptoms and been fine afterwards
