My mom recently found out that she had multiple i.e. silent strokes in her brain due to the close arteries/blood vessels, and she has Empty Sella Syndrome. Her MRI showed several stroke and flatten pituitary glad...Her GP requested that she does a 24 hr urine sample, which I am unsure how her urine relates to her brain but I am freaking out!! My mom is 68 years old AA female who suffers from high blood pressure (hypertension), which she can stand to become healthier and lose some weight but at this point what can we do? Her symptoms are dizzy spells, waddling while walking, aching pain throughout her body at times and falling. Grateful, she hasn't hurt herself but if anyone can provide insight to what is going on or what questions should I ask her GP I would grately appreciate it...Her GP will be referring her to a Neurologist this week as well...What should we ask him/her? Ive read on the internet that if a person had multiple strokes then the grand-mal seizure that can lead to a massive stoke, which can come within the next 3-6 months. I cant stomach my mother passing away right now although I know one day that day is inevitable.
Please help me!!!
