  1. just asking a simple question
  2. How high was your BP
  3. Becky I have talked to my 3 professionals on the yes / no on CBD oil and here is what they told me 1. My family Dr said there is not enough known if it will or will not help but said its not regulated like pharmaceutical drugs are so you don't know if this is pure or mixed with fillers and the persons that are getting rich off of them is out state governments. He recommended I ask my Neurologist. 2. Asked my Neurologist he said in his Chinese accent he did not recommend it because CBD oil or cannabis can raises your blood pressure and make you more prone to another stroke, I never want to go thru that again. I know most people argue that it wont but who do you listen to your friends of the Neurologist. 3. Asked my PT he said he tried it for back pain he has ( from golfing ) and it did not work, he told me to as my Neurologist. What seams to be working for me is less is better as in any types of drugs I'm on 3 drugs two for type diabetes and one to lower my cholesterol witch is 101 without med's to 68 with and a 81 mg baby aspirin. My daughter thinks he does not know what he is talking about but she has no experience in the medical field So i'm not going to second guess the Dr's besides what do I know.............................. i'm just a dumb Electrician My suggestion......... ask your Dr's Hope this helps Ed
  4. IFC Would you ask your gardener what stocks he suggests you invest in ............. neither would I Ask your neurologist or at least your family Dr Good luck Ed
  5. Ariel My family Dr says 2 years. My nuero Dr says it never ends. My PT says never stop trying to get better. My body says if you push me that hard you will pay for it tomorrow and maybe the day after that. Don't worry what anyone says.... we are all different, do your best and listen to your body, never give up. Good luck Ed
  6. Are you saying you just had a TIA and afterwords a ischemic stroke ?????????? or was this in the past. If it just happened and was an emergency I don't think anyone here should be playing back seat driver and second guessing emergency room treatment, now if this was a normal Dr appointment than that changes things. More info please Ed
  7. If you notice, as we get older we get prescribed more drugs, they don't fix us they just maintain us and the drug company's are making a fortune in the process
  8. Hello and sorry for your feelings but its out of your control. Don't let this consume you life, enjoy your family and friends, take care of your self and enjoy everyday Life is beautiful Ed
  9. Have to say I like reading this board but why was cyphers post locked out, she is no longer with us on the board and that should be enough. I totally get where she is coming from as most of us here do, hell most of us have thought this way....... I know the way I have felt and continue to feel and I don't like it but her post was a meeting place and now you can't even post your thoughts or questions. I don't want anyone telling me i'm right or I'm wrong.......... I personally don't care, all I ever wanted was place were I or we can vent and ask questions without being chastised or it being locked out and done because someone was tired of this subject or the amount of time it has gathered I know some got butt hurt with what was written get over it..... it's not personal it's our hart and soul speaking out and most here know what i'm saying. . On a side note the Aderall for controlling dizziness was a bust ( Thanks for the kind thoughts Chuck ) Oh well back to the drawing board or maybe........................maybe Newport Mesa Audiology Balance & Ear was right saying they might be able to help but no guarantees and this might be the best I ever get. Oh to be young again....... and healthy don't put today off and wait till tomorrow because tomorrow may never come and all were left with are the memories of days gone by Ed

  11. The more I read the more I learn, the one thing I have realized is i'm not that bad off other than feeling like i'm drunk / light headed Addreall is a controlled substance and they only had 10 and my perception is for 30 and they wont do anything different from what the Dr prescribed, I have taken it and waiting to see if it helps, only thing Dr was worried about was raising my BP but I should be ok Wish me luck Ed
  12. Charles I went to my Dr today and got my prescription for them but the pharmacy was out of them till next Tuesday I still have a few questions on them for you Ed
  13. Strokes are not the same in everyone and everyone is not the same, you never stop learning but don't stop trying either and never give up
  14. To be honest no one will get it until they have a stroke I now understand how it goes and it hurts me inside that I was to thick headed or thought I was some how better and I would never get sick
  15. Sounds like my wife and kids, they still need money or something fixed but the second I tell them i'm tired they start with that same saying " Why is everything about your stroke" This is what makes me sick, I hate being tired all the time and just go lay down in bed This is no life and I understand why some think darker hang in there Russ
