hi,
I have been reading recent posts, and i cannot beleive the people that have the same symptoms as me.
 
I have a very small pfo, which my stroke doc has decided not to close, and to keep me on warfin for life instead. the cardio b4 stroke doc, said close it
 
I did not know that the coughing i get,giddyness, palpitations,also the fatigue the last 2 weeks, were related to the pfo, so i never mentoned them to the stroke doc, i did say breathless, but it has got worse the last week.
 
I can remember a few weeks b4 i had the stroke nov 08, that i was coughing a lot, but i had no bad chest
 
I have no colestrol, low blood pressure, not overwight, but i find myself getting weaker for some reason.
 
Ive asked my gp to refer me to a neroligist, as the stroke doc said no need?, also a 2nd opinion from another hosp.
 
I was a fit and healthy person b4 stroke, i want to be as i was, why am i getting worse? Is ?is it in my head?
 
Please can somebody give me some info
