I experienced what I believe to be a transient ischemic attack (TIA), sometimes called a mini-stroke. I was driving to work a few days ago and apparently hit another car and then continued on (driving in the wrong lane) for a couple of blocks until I was pulled over by a motorcycle policeman. I have absolutely no recollection of this accident. In fact, I have virtually no recollection of anything a short time after leaving my apartment. The policeman gave me something called a Priority Re-Examination, which means I have to prove to the DMV I'm capable of driving. The policeman wrote that I exhibited impaired cognitive and motor skills. I could barely speak and was staggering around like a drunk.
Now I have about 19 days to visit a doctor for a checkup. My regular sclero doctor is all booked up for the next couple of months. My question is this: I understand there's no direct connection between Scleroderm and TIA, so do I really need to see my regular doc, or would a neurologist do?
Thanks in advance.
