Hello doctor,

I am having blood pressure and diabetes. Currently, I am using Triolmezest 40 mg and Starpress XL 25 mg for blood pressure and Glimestar-M1 for diabetes. All levels are normal including lipid, echo, HbA1c, etc. Two days back, all of a sudden, my neck started paining and there was a blurredness for sometime. After closing my eyes for few minutes, I was normal. Neck pain continued and after one period I was not able to recollect the names of the people for five to ten minutes and fully conscious. After 10 minutes, I was able to recollect everything. Of course, I was under little stress. Kindly suggest what could be the reason or is it normal for everybody? Kindly advise the precautions and any diagnostics. Longtime back, I was diagnosed for spondylitis but there is no pain usually.

Welcome to

Since you are a diabetic and hypertensive, in such a case I would like to evaluate you for the possibility of transient ischemic stroke (TIA). I would recommend an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) brain and a color Doppler. If all results are normal, then this could be a postural fainting attack, cervical myalgia or could be simply stress-induced. So, go ahead with the tests.

Start exercises, meditation for stress relief. Never skip your breakfast. Do not stand for long hours. Drink plenty of fluids. Also, keep a watch on your blood pressure.

I hope this helps.

Thank you doctor,

Definitely it helped to get clarity. Can I get it done in two weeks time and how much does it usually cost?

Welcome back to

You should get it done as soon as possible. Cost would be less expensive for MRI brain and color Doppler carotid.
