days) that I just dealt...
I was recently hospitalized for a lingering headache (8 days) that I just dealt with. .I only went to the ER after my speech became slurred, I was admitted for 3 days and had an MRI, Cat Scan as well as a spinal tap. . all came back good. They couldn’t pinpoint the problem and told me to follow up with my Doctor. I’m still scared. NOTE my tongue leans to one side and my speech is slightly off. Advice?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I am 55 years old, and as far as I know, no known risk factors . . . no, I am not on any type of aspirin . . i'm just worrried that they dont have an answer and this is a prequel to something bigger later down the line . . . they had me walk, touch my nose, do strength resistance tests, etc . but nothing. I am currently awaiting a referral for a follow-up with a Neurologist

It could be a form of migraine.
