I had a a Minni stroke a couple of weeks ago, had a few tests done and have been told that I have PFO. They did the one where you could see the bubbles go from one side of my heart to the other.Am now waiting to see the right doctor about this, so they could figure out just how large the PFO is.
I have been on aspirin and plafix for over 5 years for other reasons. . Have been told to stay off work and not do anything until after I see him. They say I could have a stroke at any moment, since I have already had one TIA. It left the left side of my fave and half my tong kind of numb. ,. I am 59 years old and this sure worries me a lot. Am suppose to see this new Doctor this Thursday, that is when he will tell me what is the best thing to do. Thursday sure seams like a long time away with this on my mind! Jr

I am truly gald you had the bubble test.  I had a TIA back in August and had every test under the sun.  I had the The transesophageal echocardiogram or TEE in the diagnosis of heart disease and no PFO. 
The only med I am on is one baby ASA per day.  Like you I do worry a bit but I have no restrictions.
Let us know how you do at the Doctors on Thursday.
