Aug 16, 2016 · Falling for no apparent reason in Just Want to Talk

Have you had a MRI? Sounds like a partial seizure to me. I have them and they last a moment or two and I seldom lose consciousness. If I am standing or walking, though, I do fall.

It could be a migraine. Those are very painful, but the suddenness of it sounds different. When I get a migraine it starts slow and builds up to something terrible. Did you injure your head recently?

I am writing about your sudden headaches. Have you had a MRI? Do they have a reason for your pain? Has there been diagnosis?

I wonder too…… So many of these things are similar…

Jun 16, 2016 · Small Vessel Disease in the Brain & Cavernous Malformation in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

Hello Bellisima,
I was recently diagnosed with a cerebral cavernous malformation in the right temporal lobe. I had what I thought were migraines for years. I’ve blacked out too but I imagine they were actually small seizures. I go into Mayo Monday to have it checked out better. I’m really anxious to see what they have to say.
Where are your cavernous malformations? Do you like your doctors. How are you feeling on a day to day basis?

The doctors suggested a low fat diet? Did they say any thing about exercise? Five years ago I used to run about 3 miles a day. The things I’ve read make me think that that kind of thing may be a thing of the past. My eyes are acting up. Some days it feels as if I have someone else glasses on. ( I don’t wear glasses.) I’ve lived a fairly healthy life, no smoking, regular exercise and stuff like that but I am almost 60 and it is a progressive disease. They’ve recently moved my appointment up to June 20th. I’m glad about that. I want to hear what Mayo has to say.

What are some of the changes I can make? I’m afraid I’m probably not in the early stages but it’s taken quite a while for anyone to send me for a MRI.
