I found out something that I had already known; that is, that the jumpiness in my eyes and the uncontrolled blood pressure is in reality a side effect of the initial stroke. Because my stroke affected my brain stem, as I get tired my brain no longer has the ability to compensate for my weakness. Although the Dr. did say that it is theoretically possible that I am having a new round of TIAs, it not really a viable possibility because I do not have any other symptoms: headache, dizziness and nausea. The only "symptom" I have of a TIA is blood pressure that goes relatively quickly from normal (130/85) to very low (115/65) to very high (176/104). (By quickly, I mean in a matter of days, not hours). So, he told me what I already know: the best treatment is to get more rest, relax and give my body time to completely relax when I have "down time".
The last couple days I have been really, unusual. I don't know exactly how to describe it. I'm tired all the time. No matter how long I sleep at night I never seem to get enough sleep. The last few days I have noticed that my eyes have been acting a little weird. I tried to explain it to someone but it is like I just can't find the words to describe it right. It is worse when I have to change my focus, when I am looking at one thing and then have to change the focus to something else it seems as though it takes just a fraction of a second to refocus. Now, a fraction of a second does not seem bad until you are driving; then it can be pretty problematic. I also noticed that I seem to get a little dizzy when I stand up. It is not something that really bothers me, but it is a little irritating. It is not bad enough that I think "Oh, no, not this again." But it is something I notice. I don't know, perhaps it is because tomorrow will be the 2 year anniversary of the
