Oh yes, other problems arise. Blood thinners are a double edged sword. My brother ended up in the hospital with internal bleeding and then had no strokes without the medication. You might discuss with your doctor and dentist the possibility of switching to aspirin for a day or two to get your tooth fixed.
Maybe an ophthalmologist can look at your eye to reassure you. Nuts as I am I had a cataract out this summer in fear of it getting worse. It went fine. Now I suddenly developed this insane tinnitus in my right ear. Going to the ENT. Mercy, what next? Regardless, we soldier on. No falling apart for us.

Even with my dental problems my numbness continues to grow. It is moving down my left forearm and is making it more difficult for my fingers. I am tired of worrying. So whatever will be will be. I am patient to see where it stops and then go from there. So having the stroke is one issue and the aftermath of a stroke is another. Why don't the doctors tell you this? It would be so much easier to take expecting more to come. I see why JLH1 got so scared. It is disconcerting. The stroke isn't done until the brain starts healing. That's what you must wait for. No one knows the damage until the brain gets to the point of starting to heal. I hope I have helped so that other people going through it has my story.

I have learned more here and at PT/OT than I have at my neurologist and my family physician! Guyp I think they don't tell you what to expect because they hope you don't and they don't know for sure. Thinking of you and hoping tomorrow will be brighter!

Yes, stroke isn't done until it is done.....never. We ought to share this with doctors. Stroke is unknowable and capricious. We are living it every day and every day it can change, this way or that. I suddenly came up with tinnitus in that damaged right ear. What next?
If we have stroke in our brain, we are never bored. Every day is a challenge. The big thing is never to give up or give in.
