Apr 1, 2019 · Cerebellar Stroke - experience/treatment/recovery in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

I had a cerebellar stroke about two months ago at age 51. I had a violent headache which I took for one of my migraines (the worst I had ever experienced). I then started experiencing vertigo (which I have never had) and then I became ill and vomiting. My wife suspected a stroke and called 911. I was tested in the hospital but they released me with no diagnosis of a stroke. Four days later I went to my Neurologist because I was having balance issue and numbness/tingling issues and he sent me for an MRI, which is when he found the stroke and checked me back into the hospital. I have sense gained most of my balance and coordination back (still have my moments) but I still have some numbness/tingling on my left side. They didn't find anything that caused the stroke, they have me on a heart monitor in case that could have been the cause but my chronic migraines/cluster headaches may have something t do with it as well so they are trying to control those as well. A very scary/traumatic experience and I feel very fortunate that I did not suffer a worse fate.
