So sorry to hear this, FL
Update about my brother.
He went to his new primary yesterday, who is also a cardiologist, and got checked over good.
This doctor said what happened was not a stroke which would have affected one side not the whole body.
Turns out it was because his BP has been dropping way too low and not coming back up.
This time it dropped so low he was in a non=responsive state and near death.
The problem was due to blood pressure lowering meds because he has had high BP so often.
It should have been stopped as soon as his BP started getting too low for so long.
He has been off it for over a week now and his BP is normal and he is gaining more strength.
I am so happy to hear he is doing so much better now.
They will not be doing any surgery or inserting any stints in the neck, he has been through so many and they won't help.
Now if the have that power outage fixed at the place I need to go I will be seeing a cardiologist soon.
Over the last three years I've had several Xrays, cardiogram, sonogram of the heart and stress tests...I am tired of it.
We know there is a hole in my heart and my cholesterol is 375 but the insurance company insists on more tests before giving me the okay on the new medicine.
Maybe they hope to hold off till that law our government wants to pass on health care gets through.
Then people like me with pre-existing conditions won't be covered.
I am beginning to think our government is run by total fools!
