    I just had a nice lie down, but he was pretty heroic!

    Mrs W had a stroke, actually had 2 within the 28 day norm. I was present when the first happened and due to quick treatment with thrombolytics and therapy she has made a superb recovery. Her PFO was fixed at St Thomas's as day surgery. She no longer has killer Migraines, raging thirst, varicose veins, insanely low blood pressure and a need to rest while out walking. She can now out speed walk me for extended periods and has lost 3 1/2 stone with out effort.

    Miss W also has the same list of symptoms to which should be added going slightly cyanose just before she grinds to halt while out walking. She has been tested, in fact tested a lot and a PFO is diagnosed, she has informed them she is a diver. However the risk from the surgery is deemed too great, so she must await an event. I really hope she does not have a stroke, or if she does that she gets the immeadiate treatment that her mother was lucky to get. It is a horrible thing.

    I hope yours gets fixed, soon. Keep pushing for action.

    I do wonder if Migraines are a CO2 hit whereby it gets shunted away from the lungs and builds up in the blood.

    Probably not, the lungs are a filter for a lot of things not only bubbles and clots but various chemical messengers such as serotonin that can be released from various stimuli including micro bubbles, these are more likely to be the triggering for migraines.
    It's always more complicated than you thought it was last week!
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.
