PattiL Posted September 24, 2007 Report Share Posted September 24, 2007 Another exciting couple days in the hospital! Late Wed. night Chrissy was talking to me one minute and the next, she wasn't able to speak. Her jaw and tongue were numb and she just couldn't get the words out. We went to the local ER, they did a CAT scan and got a little nervous--they don't have any neuro's there. Chrissy's internal med Dr. was called and they then sent us down to University Hospitals in Cleveland, (Chrissy'll do anything for an ambulance ride--hahaha) which we were grateful for, since they have most of Chrissy's records. Anyway, they did an MRI and and EEG. BY 7:30 am she was able to speak normally. They came up with 'complex migraines'. It's when the blood vessels in the brain become constricted and then dilate; when the blood vessels dilate, the headache develops. (She had complained of a headache (not migraine) around 9 pm and took tylenol, which helped. Scary stuff. We thought she might be having a stroke. Once in the ER, her left arm was twitching quite a bit also. Her jaw is still alittle numb, but they didn't seem too concerned with that. We have to go back to the neuro clinic in two weeks and have a ton of questions. Just curious if anyone has gone through this ordeal and if they've had more than one.I'm glad it's over!!!Patti Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
