My husband had two strokes three weeks ago in lower part of cerebellum close to brain stem, and I am aware that reabilitation will take some time. He has lost hearing in left ear, but has a constant tone in it. Headaches are still bad and balance is bad, we were lucky that only other side effects are trouble with his speech, left face is impaired and he has trouble with his left eye. My husband is only 38, very active, coaches, works out and is a fireman. There are no problems with highblood pressure, and his heart checked out fine. No one can give us a reason why he had these strokes. I know that we may not ever get that answer, but that would help us to understand this. He will recover in time, he is very stuborn and will work hard. It is truly hard for me and our family, we have questions and very few answers. They first dx him with MS and then ruled this out with spinal tap. His symptons have gotten worse and he is scheduled for his 3rd MRI tomorrow. He has alot of pain in the lover left part of his head and pain will travel down his next. The pain medicine is not working and not sure what other options that we may have for pain. If anyone may have any suggestions that would be great. I feel very overwhelmed and want to be strong for him, but this is truly weighing on me as well on him.
