Dear Kitt: Thanks for your reply. I work in the med field (respiratory therapist/asthma instructor) and am very familiar w/strokes & TIAs (unfortunately from both prefessional & pt sides). I was just wondering if anyone else ever had the same problems as I do. This will be my 5th cath & it doesn't really scare me, but the TIAs I have had following my last cath have me concerned about
what the next cath will do. I'm afraid instead of TIAs it will become a stroke. I have a neuro condition also called White Matter Disease (progressive) ... not MS, but caused by BP not being able to be controlled & heart arrythmias. I was also told my vascular system is not what it should be. Heredity played a HUGE part in my health, so everyone out there ... learn your med hx if you don't already know it. Thanks again for your input.
