    My question to anyone who has ever had one of these. Did you feel dizzy, fatigued,etc. for several days afterwards?

    My dad has had a couple that were diagnosed - and, potentially, several undiagnosed. I don't recall any lasting dizziness but he was very tired afterward. He has other, complicating medical conditions so it's hard to tell if it was the "mini strokes" or something else.

    That sounds like where I am right now. Thank you for your posting. I will be hooked up to a Holter Monitor for the next week to see what is going on and my cardiologist will take it from there. God bless.

    I guess it kind of depends on where in the brain the stroke (mini or regular) happened as to what effect it had.

    My grandmother had a series of mini strokes before she died and it affected her personality a LOT. She had other medical issues (in her late 80s) which would have masked any tiredness from the strokes.

    I would expect that the tiredness and dizzyness could be an effect, but you need to talk to a doctor to be sure.

    Thank you. This is helpful. I have a heart monitor attached to me for the next couple of days. My cardiologist will document the results and take it from there. God bless you and yours.

    I have had a lot of dizziness and headache and some confusion. Also been stumbling. Am waiting for an appointment for a head ct scan. Not sure if this could have been a mini stroke, but there isn't a lot of information

    Having seen patients have strokes- warning signs are high blood pressure and severe headaches.
