husband had MRI and Angiogram yesterday, I know Angio was normal, and need to confirm that MRI is too, but I am fairly certain it is. Last night his throat and ears started to hurt, and by late night he could barely swallow. they did a throat culture, and he has Strep throat. I had it last week. The physician's assistant said that the strep could cause an inflammatory response that would cause his pain to increase. I came home for a while to do some home work, as the internet service they have at the hospital is so slow I cannot access the websites I need to. Anyways, we are anticipating discharge tommorrow, as long as nothing else crops up. These last few days have been horrific. Thanks for your prayers and thoughts. I believe they must have helped
Yesterday after work, easy child said he needed me to get him to the dr. He said he was really sick(unlike him to tell me that). He too has Strep throat- they can test it right in the office there. Glad everything worked out, it's scary when you don't know.
Well, he's home now. All the tests on the brain came back normal. The blood in the spinal fluid from the lumbar puncture was from a "bloody puncture" or contaminated specimen. There really is no explanation for his passing out, other than strep throat and that sounds really lame to me. The medical profession has always been confused by husband, so what else is new.
