Hi, last week the ambulance was here because my Mom was passing out and I grabbed her before she fell down. I walked her to a chair (she had problems walking) and made her sit down then I called 911. They did an EKG and other tests and told me privately they thought she had a TIA (mini-stroke).
Twice in the past couple of days she told me that she can't see out of her left eye. Could this be from the TIA if she did have one?
I just called and left a message with her ophthalmologist who she hasn't seen in years due to her having 20/20 vision after cataract surgery years ago. Waiting to hear back.
The EMT's think it's possible that she may suffer a major stroke.
If the ophthalmologist can't see her right away should I bring my Mom to the ER?
