My husband is 45 and has had 3 strokes March of 2011 with full recovery. His scan just came back and his blockage is getting worse. Yesterday he started to have face pain, he said he felt it was in the bone and today the pain is now in his eye too. Could this be stroke related?

I understand the stress you must be undergoing.

Yes, these symptoms could herald the onset of an impending recurrent stoke.

In view of the young age and the repeated frequency of strokes, the underlying cause needs to be identified and controlled.

I hope this answers your doubt.

Please do write back to me in case of follow up queries that you may have.

With Regards
