AVM Survivors Network

Undiagnosed for 5 years

I had an AVM in my brain that was embolized and lasered in 1991. In 2014 I started falling, fast forward 5 years, now using a walker and have right side weakness arm and leg and speech issues, some swallowing difficulties too. I have been seen by 5 top neurologists and every test possible has come back negative. Is it possible that scar tissue is causing my symptoms?

Hi Donna! If I were you, I would check with my doctor. They should be allowed to review your chart and let you know what the case is. It may be medication. It may be your AVM, it might be a lot of different factors. Your doctor would be most familiar with what the cause and case may be. I hope you are able to figure out what it is though! Blessings as you continue!
