Just thought I would share that the most recent edition of the Canadian magazine Reader’s Digest has a health article about a brain bleed caused by an AVM. Normally I just skim the magazine for the jokes, but the title “what’s wrong with me” caught my eye. The symptoms listed were headache and nausea… exactly the symptoms I experienced for the first time over 11 years ago when my brain AVM bled, so I read the article and found that it was in fact describing this condition!
It’s humbling when it says that it affects less than 1% of the population… we are that percent!!
