Hi everyone I have been reading your posts as I am new to the group . I had a cerebellum stroke on 29th sept which I had a ct scan and nothing showed up and I was sent home for a middle ear infection with dizziness , and double vision . I was at home 9 days and the double vision got better and I was waiting again then it happened again . I was again rushed to A&E for a ct scan and mra scan this time the scans showed up my first stroke of the cerebellum and a second stroke on my brain stem . My face dropped my arm didn't belong to me basically I was numb on my left side . My balance had gone my taste has gone I had dizziness and my double vision was back . I was in Worcester hospital for 10 days then transferred to rehab for another 12 days I'm now back home , I've had rehab from nurses and ot nurses and today I scored 56 out of 56 for my exercises and have now been discharged after 9 weeks from my first stroke . It's very early days and I still have double vision but got a temp prism lens to see single , still very bad dizziness , half my taste is back and still very fatigued but I have come on so much there is hope for everyone . Back to hospital in January for eyes and dizziness so fingers crossed it keeps getting better .
