My husband who is 47 yrs old had two left cerebellar infarcts and a right occipital infarct 4 years ago. They occurred simultaneously and despite all sorts of testing....they have never found a reason that this happened. They were all considered embolic events. His only medical history up to that point was that he developed migraine headaches a couple of years before the strokes, a history of peptic ulcer disease, and sleep apnea. He was using CPAP prior to the strokes without a problem. Since the strokes, the migraines are almost a daily occurrence (although he does take propranolol as a preventative med for them), he cannot tolerate the CPAP( we have had additional sleep studies and made changes to the CPAP without any improvement). He complains daily of poor sleep, has memory problems, muscular jerking especially in the arms and hands during sleep, irritability, personality changes, complains periodically of numbness in the left side of his face, and is of course depressed. The strokes left him with left sided peripheral vision loss and he always is unsteady upon rising. He has tried Wellbutrin for the depression but seemed to make the headaches worse. His physician gave him Cyclobenzaprine and Ambien to help with sleep but nothing seems to improve his sleeping. His quality of life is poor needless to say and it affects our family as a whole. I am consulting another neurologist next week to see if there is something we are missing or any treatments that might help his situation. Any thoughts???
