Need help with stroke follow up testing
Almost 2 years ago I had a bad virus for several weeks, got a sore throat followed by an ear ache with vertigo. I fell and couldn't get up - was transported to hospital via ambulance with extremely high bp. Had MRI, CT etc but nothing conclusive showed up - dr says "if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it's a stroke". I had only two dimensional vision with dulled color, walking problems, phonemic aphasia and some other issues. I've had EEG and other neurofeedback for over a year and improved somewhat but still have ADD like focus problems, balance problems, dropping things, extreme fatigue, and fluctuating blood pressure. Because nothing shows on MRI/CT now doctors are questioning if I had a stroke. Is it wrong that one can still have symptoms such as these after an event, even if no blood clots or scarring show up? I did have a brain scan with several EEGs that showed alot of problems but that is not a test most doctors are familar with. Is there some other test or treatment I should explore? At this point I don't think it really matters if it was a stroke, a meningitis type virus, or a TBI (from when I fell and hit my head the day I went to the hospital). My life has dramatically changed since this event and I'd really like to figure out how to get back to a functioning person (haven't been to work since I was taken to the hospital). Thanks for your thoughts.
