I recently suffered a stroke. The angiogram showed dissection of the vertebral arteries. A week prior to the stroke, I had some major dental work done that involved a root canal and the dentist had to work 45 minutes to pry the temp crown off. He used a tapper vigorously and one week later had the stroke. I suffered no permanent damage but suffer anxiety about it happening again.
