As the last few months has progressed I keep getting told you will get better, things will improve. In all honesty over the last 2 months things haven’t improved, I haven’t got better. The headaches are still there and I think I have learnt to tolerate the pain, the weird episodes keep happening, where I think I am making perfect sense but all I am talking is gibberish and really slowly.
These strokes have taken their toll on me. I have had a lot of tests for instance CT scan of my head, 24 hour ECG, blood tests all have come back negative, which you may think is a good thing but it still doesn’t answer why? Why did these strokes happen and more importantly what has caused them.
Now the tests have been stepped up next month I am due to have a T.O.E scan which is basically a camera down your throat to investigate the heart and also an MRI scan of my brain. The T.O.E scan means a day in hospital but Mr Savvy won’t be able to visit as Zak wouldn’t cope and start screaming. I am worried about the outcome, so far various people have mentioned MS – multiple Sclerosis and chronic heart defect. Both are treatable yet it scares me as its the unknown.
Something has caused the strokes and something is keeping my blood pressure high despite being on mega dosage of blood pressure tablets. I don’t know what it is and I am so scared what they are going to find out with these test. I know this has to be done but to me what I have had is more than just a stroke
