    So i found out through an MRI that I had a stoke on the left side of mt brain. I found this out because I went to the doctor complaining that my migraine headaches were getting worse. Well the MRI was done 5/31/12 and I saw my doctor in 8/12. I had a ischemic stroke with some loss to my brain tissue. I have since fallen down the stairs because I have become disoriented, and another time I was in a room in my home and did not know where I was. I also have had issues swallowing for the better part of the year. As far as I can remember I jhad no signs. I am going for an EEG, and have no idea what to expect. Any advice?? MY boyfriens says I worry too much, but in my line of work I need to find out whats going on, since my initial neurologist dropped the ball on me back in may.
