(no trauma, no nothing, just happened one day while i was working) i went along with the proper medications treatments, did PT and OT and speech therapy was feeling great until around february 2012(bad headaches) etc... then 03/16/12 i had a second stroke cause still not sure, possible from blood pressure at 272/210, they found my dissection has healed but i have an internal aneurysm at 9mm circumference? not sure what it means but they telling me i need to get a stent , they took me off all other meds and gave me BP meds and (1) aspirin 325mg per day. It s July, they still haven t scheduled my surgery and now i suffering from intermittent sharp headaches, left eye seeing gray, black silver spots lights if you will, and constant heart pain when i exhale.
