Tingling in leg after coiling
Hello my name is Cindy. I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm this past November. I have been home from the hospital since 12/17. Occasionally I get tingling in my right leg and foot that scares me. Sometimes I will have minor tingling on other parts of my body. Is this normal? I have asked my family Doctor about it and he said it was due to muscle atrophy but I've almost got my muscles back now. I do get occasional headaches but not bad and they scare me as well. My eye sockets also hurt but I've seen an Optometrist and an Opthamologist and they said I'm fine. I had to stop topamax due to increased pressure in my eyes. Sometimes I have fears that I will have a rebleed or another aneurysm and will die. I have three children. I collapsed in front of them. This was so hard on them. I was told I only had one aneurysm. The neuro radiologist put in four coils. I see him on 1/20. Then the neuro surgeon on 1/30. I hope one day I can live my life and not be scared all the time.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
