I have been feeling weak, numb, and almost passing out throughout the day randomly for a month. I had a CTA in the ER, and they sent me home with this report. And they said to check with neurology, but not to worry. I have read and it says not to worry unless you are symptomatic, which I think I am. I have had a year of random anxiety, confusion, pain, and stroke like episodes.
The neck CTA report read, no CTA evidence for internal carotid artery stenosis, occlusion, or dissection. Mildly hypoplastic right cervical vertebral artery without evidence for dissection, stenosis, or occlusion. Evidence for prior right hemithyroidectomy. The head CTA read, no CTA evidence for large vessel occlusion secondary to embolism or acute thrombus. Hypoplastic right intracranial vertebral and basilar arteries. Severe hypoplasia of the right posterior cerebral artery P1 segment with a patent right posterior communicating artery supplying blood to the right posterior circulation.

Thank you for replying. Yes, I suffer from hemiplegic migraines for years. My face falls, and I go weak and then it bounces back. I have a factor V heterozygous mutation, so I clot, but only one gene mutation. What can be done about this? Am I going to die? Can they put stents in? This whole year, the doctors have been giving me medicines for anxiety and no one will listen.
