Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.

The symptoms are headache , vomitting, vertigo , and even hemiparesis and stRoke. Not all symptoms are presemy in every patient.

The best option for treatment is anticoagulant therapy. We start on heparin. And continue warfarIn. Usually needs admission for treatment.

I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal.

Brief Answer:
Will need immediate treatment

Detailed Answer:
No need to limit any activity.
As I said, it needs anticoagulation therapy.
Once diagnosed it will need immediate treatment.
But tI'll your neurologist has not confirmed it, better to wait.
Therapy has its side effects too.
I have read your response.
