Re: Burst blood vessels...
i need to know a couple things here. was this 'only' a primary/GP who told you the results and then placed you on aspirin, or at LEAST a good much more knowledgable and experienced neurologist or vascular type specialist? if the reasons for the bleeds are not yet 'fully known", it can be a bit risky to place a person with bleed history on aspirin. did he at LEAST run your basic blood labs(PT PTT and INR) to find out your overall clotting times BEFORE simply telling you to even take that aspirin?
and exactly what was the very specific reason FOR your burst blood vessels. there just CAN be many reasons for ones blood vessels to actually 'bleed' within our brains, not ONLY "stroke or blood clots". if you do not yet have your very OWN copy of that MRI report, you DO NEED to obtain one for YOUR own medical records so YOU just have it and even more importantly also READ thru it for more details that at this point you just really NEED to start keeping on yourself, esp since a significant finding has been documanted in your body. it is pretty simple to obtain one from either that ordering doc or the facility that just did your actual MRI scan too. but either way, you NEED this report.
while anyone at pretty much any age just 'can' have a small bleed happen for many reasons, i most certainly would NOT refer to an event with multiple bleeds in ones brain as 'normal or to be expected' at all. your symptoms just 'could' have stemmed from the brain bleeds depending upon how large and exacting location and the resulting damage from, BUT when it comes to actual sensory loss too, that whole spinal also needs to be fully cleared with an MRI too. this is simply ruling out or in any other 'possibles' so you and your doc fully KNOW what IS generating the OTHER ongoing symptoms(migrane " probably" easily 'could be from the brain bleeds in some ways). but if you could answer the questions i asked, it really would help me to help you. i am 50 and DO have a history of being born with fragile vessel walls from a kidney disease like all over including my brain and spinal cord. and tho i have had thankfully had an "unruptured" anuerysm found and coiled, i have NO, none, 'burst blood vessels" what so ever. you really DO need a much more in depth type of 'work up/follow up' done by a good knowledgable neurologist or even neurosurgeon here. esp if this WAS indeed a mere primary type doc who sent you and seems to think bursting blood vessels is even remotely 'normal or okay' to have occur in someone, even at 52. they just NEED to pinpoint the actual underlying reason for having the ESP multiple bleeds in your brain.
