So my wife at 45 years of age had an aneurysm and SAH about 2 years ago. She has 2 stents and 10 coils in her right frontal internal carotid artery in right frontal lobe with about 30% necrosis. She has never had a day since without a headache and must treat the pain with opiates. What is almost as bad as the headaches, is the nausea. She looses more weight every week and will have to have help or be placed in the hospital because she is so weak. She really has no other problems from the stroke. All of her blood tests are normal and GI scans have revealed nothing.

Her problem is apparently genetic, her daughter has been diagnosed with cranial circulatory issues also.

Could sure use some guidance on this subject.

Thanks in advance.
