Hi Everyone
I had many of the same symptoms as all of you in 1995. It started with a terrible headache and a weakness in my right arm and leg, and when I woke up in the morning, I had paralysis down my whole right side, my face drooped, as did the corner of my eye. I had slurred speech and my short term memory was so bad I couldn't remember what I was trying to say from the beginning of a sentence to the end of it. Doctors thought I had a stroke, but after an MRI, CATscan, and doppler ultrasound nothing was found. I put it down to stress, and started living healthier, walking great distances and watching what I ate. I was not on anti-anxiety or anti-depressant medication at that time.

I had the odd tingling through the years but nothing lasting. Then in November of 2002, I woke up in the middle of the night and my right side of my face was drooping again, and I had some minor tingling in my right arm. I started having problems with drooling out of the right side of my mouth at night. I had some difficulty with blurred vision and some headaches and now chest pain as well. Anyway, Doctors sent me for another MRI. This time they found a bulge in one of the main arteries in my brain where the arteries begin to branch. I am now awating a Angio-CATscan. They have also diagnosed me with sleep apnea. They also discovered that I have a high pressure in my eyes which can result in glaucoma. I am now on anti-anxiety meds. They think I may have a brain aneurism. Its important to note that when I started having my first batch of symptoms in 1995, I was 36 years old. I am now 44. My symptoms are very similar to those of you who have already responded on this bulletin board. I just wanted to share my story with all of you.
