Thanks for the kind replies. My stroke was a CVST - Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Quite the headache! I ignored the pain until my husband insisted I see the doc. I did not suffer any other symptoms or troubles besides the head pain.
Recovery included a short stay in the hospital for a heparin pump party and some training and more MRI tests. There was much concern that my history included another blood clot years earlier where I survived a Pulmonary Embolism. When that occurred I had just had my daughter and it was by Caesarean section it was assumed this was where that blood clot came from.
So genetic testing was ordered where It was discovered that I have a Protein S deficiency (an inherited disorder) which explains the habit of forming blood clots. So instead of a 3 to 6 month stint with blood thinner medication I was inducted in to the Coumadin Club where I became a lifetime member this time!
I feel very fortunate that my CVST and pulmonary embolism were in no way debilitating but pay plenty of attention in knowing that I am a regular customer to walking around with painful blood clots. Take care everyone
