I had a ht cath on 12-13-06 ... everything went great (angio/stent); felt much better.  I also have white matter disease of the brain (periventricular leukomalacia).  Question:  Did anyone suffer a TIA a little while after a ht cath.  Cardiologist said it wasn't related to my ht; neurologist said he didn't know why I was having so many neuro problems, but he was going to find the answer (thank goodness someone is).  Any info is greatly appreciated.  I know TIAs resolve usually within 2-24 hrs.  Mine has not completely resolved, left neuro symptoms worse, and now I feel llike I'm losing right side useage, like the left side.

I don't have an answer?  Hoping your better and will go to a ER if worse.  You likely understand your symtons best, but losing more more strength isn't good.  Do you have an appt. soon for the neur problems?   Just popped in and saw you so wanted to say "hey".

Dear AnnieInOz: Thanks for the reply. The Neuro clinic is suppose to call and schedule an appt for next wk. I'm having my previous neurologist fax over all records to my new one here. The previous one was excellent but too far away. He also just kept watching my progress (keeps getting worse), but hasn't done anything to really stop them or find out why they are occuring. My new one wants to find why the TIAs and white matter disease is progressing so he can stop them. I never know from one day to the next what my body is going to do that day. Good thing I believe that "If you stop, you drop" or else I'd probably be a basket case. I believe that if you stumble, you simply get up and keep going ... the road is bound to get smoother.
