User :   Hi,
my mother is sick.
she had a stroke 2 years ago. Last 5-6 days she has a dizziness every day for 2.3 ours and she feels tired and cant do anything by herself. She went to the hospital and they gave her some medication for seizure and thats all. Today she had an EEG and there where no doctor to read it. She asked doctors to keep her at the hospital for few days but they refused. I was researching the internet and found that she might have an aneurism. My question is would it be recognized on the blood picture because she had done it and it was normal.
