I saw the neurologist today about that spell I had yesterday. I had a spell where I could only walk left. It was really weird. Afterwards I slept for an hour in a really deep sleep. Anyway, Dr. A seemed to think it was more likely to be a TIA which is a Transient Ischemic Attack, or mini-stroke, more than a seizure. I have temporal lobe epilepsy but, like I said, he didn't think this was a seizure. He told me to take aspirin every day.
I thought that was kind of bizarre, I mean I'm only 29! I don't know if that is a vascular or neurological in cause. I mean could it be the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome? For anyone who doesn't read my blog, I have the hypermobility type but a consult rheumy said he thought I might have the vascular type. I'm seeing Dr. Willing in St. Louis, Missouri next month, she is an EDS specialist.
So...what now? I guess take aspirin everyday and wait to see Dr. Willing to see if it is EDS related.
