My story so far-Updated


Thankyou for the reply, I can’t remember exactly how long I have had this for but it seems to be after the blurry eyes episodes I get hit with vertigo for a few days afterwards. Do you know anything that helps with vertigo symptoms? I really hate the dizzy, unsteady feeling. I hope you’re doing well x


Hi CharlotteLouise 2992, I’ve had two dye angiograms and both were done with light anaesthetic. I had two Bandaids in my groin and one where the embolization was done. There was little discomfort afterwards. I hope it will be the same for you. Even if no anaesthetic is used, local numbing will be done to keep you pain-free. Maybe share your concern with your doctor/surgeon. I find for myself that information eases anxiety. All the very best. Please update us and let us know how you fared.


Sorry! I didn’t answer you. Yes, my doc gave me some prochlorperazine maleate tablets, though I don’t think they really made any difference to me.

How are you doing?


How are things going now, Charlotte? Well, I hope.
