I'm sorry about your boyfriend. things that i've noticed with me and my dad (he had a couple of strokes), sorry if its not helpful. but i was put in the hospital 2ce b/c i got dizzy, fainted and couldn't see anything at that time-before i fainted. also when i was in the hospital, 1 time i got the chills/freezing and the other i was sweating non-stop. they did a bunch of blood tests, scans and blah blah and there was nothing wrong with me. I also fainted/got dizzy at home but wasn't taken to the hospital. I have depression and anxiety probs. my drug dealer (psychiatrist) said it's probably b/c the chemicals in my brain had changed or were changing. does your bf have depression or does it run in his family? my dad when he had his mini stroke- his heart was beating fast and dizzy, he had to lay down but was ok after a bit. his major stroke, I wasn't here for but he was confused and had no strength, he couldn't lift himself to the couch or so i heard when i got to the hospital. I just asked him about the major stroke and he said that his vision was blurry but he still could kinda see. ask your bf to lift both hands and see if one is not as high as the other. slurred speech or if one side of his face is sluggish. those 3 signs are for a stroke, that i know of. my dad smokes a lot- almost 2 packs a day but no drinking. he dad has also had heart attacks.he just told me that when he had the heart attacks, all he had was an upset stomach. i hope that helps. don't trust the doctors- as i've learned. get a second opinion.View Thread
