  • sorry you are suffering this way. I have something similar and had an mri scan which was negative for vascular but was dignosed with a form of epilepsey. its called complex partial seizures as I was having the same weird but electrical charges in my brain which could persist all day but I also had black outs. I have also had an eeg done so hopefully I will get to the bottom of it. just tell the neuro team all your symptoms and how often they occur and how you feel afterwards the more info the better they can help you. good luck and I hope they can sort you and relieve your symptoms

  • thank you, obviously my first mri showed the fact i had a stroke but there was also another white bloch which they then said cld jst be wear n tear, and my ct scan did show some abnormalities,,?? they didnt realt explain them, so hopefully now i may get some answers as long as i know wot the problem is it doesnt be so scary and can get wot ever needs to be done, thank you for reply and i wish you well too,,,mo

  • I agree that the more you know and understand the more we can cope with. Its the waiting that is awful as the stress it causes makes the Lupus worse. I hope they get to the bottom of your problems and that you start to feel better. All the very best. x
