    I'm 71 and I've had two strokes. The second stroke my family was told that I was going to die. However, I fooled the doctors. My concern is I had exrays taken of my brain.

For example, he thought a tree was a parking spot. In the midst of his confusion he rams into a parked car. He had no idea what he had just done. He didn't even know who I was or where we were anymore and he was yawning like crazy, barely able to speak. I called 9-1-1, and when they arrived, they said his vitals were....

    What could I possibly be experiencing?

    Hello, Four days ago I had a microwave fall onto my head. It hurt a lot and I had a ringing in my head after that incident. I was alright nonetheless, just a little hurt from the microwave.
