Hi I just joined. Almost a year on from having a stroke in the hindbrain that has left me with right sided hypersensitivity, I have been unable to get any help or understanding for some symptoms. I hope someone may be able to offer advice. I have a persistent left-sided nasal drip which cannot be explained. Also the left eye can get very irritated and I can't read. At worst, there is also pain above the brow. The trigeminal nerve affects all these areas.
These symptoms become worse after I have had an 'episode' -- a moment of queerness, starting wth a electronic-type high pitched sound in my brain with vertigo-type light headedness/dizziness. Whenever I have one of these bouts, I am very unsteady and unstable for 3 days minimum afterwards and have to remain lying.
Whenever I feel I am recovering, I have another episode that sets me right back. I have no idea what causes these setbacks.
NHS is not offering help other than medicine to block runny nose. Wish I could see a neurologist. Any one with insights?
