Wow!-thanks everyone. I've been having these aura's and headaches since I had my stroke after my bypass in Aug. I'd never had them before. I also have epilepsy as well from the stroke. The medication that he tried me on caused me to have a very nasty reaction, so now I'm almost afraid to try anything else-I see him (neuro Dr.) again in July.
Juliette, they can cause stroke! That's why they are concerning.
BeachJay, I'm so happy to see you here-it made my day!! Thanks! :)
Kathlyn, the aura's that I have almost feel as if I'm having a stroke-as a matter of fact, they are the symptoms (almost) of when I did have it. I get left sided facial numbness and tingling, just the weirdest sensation. Then within several hours I start with the headaches. So far they aren't as bad as I've heard they can get-but what worries me is how many I've been getting. Weekly.
You all take good care of yourselves and Jay, you may say your 70, but I think of you as a feisty 60 yr. old!! lol That is a compliment!
Big Hugs, Teri
