Hello All, I am new to this site.
I suffered an internal carotid artery dissection when I was 36, I am now 42 and I am still suffering left hand side head pain, fatigue, memory impairment, poor concentration and now anxiety as I have had no help with my condition.
I used to be very strong; physicaly, mentally and emotionally. I now live my life like a 80 year old. I have had no help with my condition and don't know which way to turn. I feel like it's finally hit me that this is going to be as good as it gets.
I am on 60 ml of amitriptyline to help me deal with the pain but even this my husband had to Google 2 years after the stroke. Sorry to be on such a downer , this isn't who I am, I just feel like there is no help. I have been told by a couple of charitys that I need to see a neuro-phycologist but they seem to be very few.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!!
