    it was one of those experiences i never want to go through again. I cant get that image out of my mind. Keeping a very close eye on her as she is now at risk of having a full blown stroke. Keeping my fingers crossed that she doesnt have one and that she recovers from her mini stroke without further problems.

    My first MRI showed an area affected by a clot but a 2nd MRI 10 days later showed none. Did I have a TIA or a stroke?

    In 2000, I had two strokes within days of each other. The neurologist said that I had been having "mini-strokes" or "Trans Ischemic Attacks (TIA’s)" for years. All the physicians agreed that a congenital heart problem called Atrial Septal Defect was causing the strokes. After the first major stroke, however, I was not well enough to undergo the corrective heart surgery. First, I would have to build strength and endurance through physical therapy, The right-sided strokes had rendered the left side of my body numb to the touch, heavy, and extremely uncoordinated. Peripheral vision was permanently damaged. It was difficult to stay awake, least of all alert. The brain stem swelling caused imbalance, dizziness, and at times a slowing of respiration. Stroke affected vital pathways in my brain, causing constant electric-like pain on the left side of my body.
    After the second stroke, machines aided life support and the doctors decided i give a traditional herbal medicine a try, since all they have done to revive me was to no avail. i had no one in mind so i have to search the internet for a traditional herbal doctor, i saw so many people talking about the healing powers of dr. kpomosa a very famous traditional doctor who base in Los angeles, and has helped so many people all over the world, i was reluctant to give his herbal fomular for stroke a try, lo and behold after 3 weeks of medication it was like he had my brain refreshed, my brain began to have control over my body system,3 months after completing dr kpomosa herbal fomular, I regained the ability to walk, speak clearly and drive very well. Am using this medium to suggest Dr kpomosa for all in need of a permanent cure to stroke or any other Chronic disease, Dr kpomosa is hope for all. write Dr kpomosa via email dr.kpomosa@dr.com or Whatsapp him +1 (712) 600 1226. never lose hope ,to every problem theres a solution. best of wishes
