Post LBD and TIAs
Jerome had several TIA's ("mini-strokes") about two years ago. He had a more severe one this past Wednesday. It passed and we went home from the ER that same day. I'm concerned about what effect TIAs might have on the LBD and vice-versa. And for those of you whose LOs have had a stroke, were they preceded by TIAs?

Jerome's doctor is talking about referring him for a full cardio work-up. Jerome had that done before and he was just fine. I'm worried that the dye injections, chemical stress test, etc. would be much for him to handle at this time. Jerome has had a noticeable deterioration with his LBD in recent weeks and is developing more pronounced and constant tremors (when evaluated at Mayo a few months ago, determined it was essential tremor, not PD).

Any thoughts based on your experiences? Can LBDdoc or other professional weigh in? (We don't have a local neurologist).
