I had a TIA/Stroke 23 Aug 2010 but none of my tests show no signs of a stroke. My doctor says that he does not know what to say, is stumped because my tests have come out normal on the CT, the MRI of the brain. Although he did run other tests of the neck and spine, found a slight herniated disk on the spine along with other mild deformities, which he did diagnose cervial myeopathy, sent me to see a neurosurgeon for a consult, he determined that the CT, showed no reason for surgery at this time. When the neurosurgeon did further testing an exray showed a bone spur on the neck, he advised pt with traction which made my pain worse, he discontinued it. Please advise not sure what is going on I have also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I still have signs of stroke.View Thread
