    Does not sound like a stroke, more likely a TIA.

    Wow- that is very worrisome. I hope she does see a doctor. (It says that a co-worker took her home and she feels fine now. Which sounds like no one checked her past the paramedics who checked her vitals)

    Basically the same message, minus the sensationalism.

    I would presume that she is following up with her regular doctors.

    Symptoms of TIA resolve within 24 hours.

    But even if the symptoms resolve- isn't it still indicative of an underlying problem?

    That is scary. I saw this video early. It sounds like she went into a word salad. This can also be associated with mental illnesses, although I doubt this would be the case with her. I don't think she would make it at her job and onto the air with a mental illness if she was having problems. It isn't impossible, either, though.

    Very likely it is. I am sure her discharge instructions included a recommendation to follow up with her PCP asap.

    My dad had a TIA a few years ago. He couldn't say "database", kept saying "base data". The doctors put him on meds and a few months later he had one of the arteries in his neck cleaned out. He's fine now. Must be genetic — my aunt (his sister) had the same thing happen a few years ago, only she didn't need surgery.

    But she didn't go to the hospital- there are no discharge papers. It's so easy to say "i feel fine now " and Do nothing. Hopefully the public humiliation (so sad... that really sucks) is enough for her to want answers.

    She did follow up with her doctor so she is not doing nothing.

    I saw that last night and wondered what she was saying. For some reason I thought the transmission was garbled or something. I never thought about a possible stroke, but I should have since my mom had one years ago and I know the symptom of garbled speech.

    I saw a video of the incident and it looks more like a seizure.

    Hmmm, I've seen a few people have seizures and none of them only had issues with speech. As matter of fact, they were unable to speak at all. She was able to maintain her balance, hold the mic, stand still, keep eye contact with the camera, etc. What kind of seizure are you talking about?

    It looked kind of like a TIA to me...hope that she is indeed following up with her doc, and taking care of herself, poor thing.

    Partial seizure. The effect depends on where in the brain it occurs. Not all seizures are created equal. http://www.webmd.com/epilepsy/guide/...their-symptoms

    Totally agree. All too often people ignore these signs because they resolve so quickly and then disaster happens. Does anyone know how old she is??
