42 y/o female. non-smoker, healthy although suffered a stroke 4 years ago due to blood clot and a PFO. Recently had some vision problems with vertical lines appearing in my vision for about 10 minutes. Am also experiencing a very heavy feeling in the back of my head when I bend over. Scheduled for a MRI, but is the head pressure something to be concerned with?

Neurologist 's  Response

Thanks for the query,

I understand your concern

The possibilities of this vison problem could be due to n intermittent poor blood supply to the eyes or even some seizure like activity in the occipital lobe (situated in the back side of the brain). Your MRI will guide us better to deal your case. If the MRI is negative please consult a local neurologist and get the EEG test done which will rule out seizure like activity in the brain. In the mean time please continue the same medications for stroke.

Hope this clarifies your query
Best wishes
