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!
