Policarpo Gonzalez del Valle y Herrero's Story

Since childhood, I’ve had problems with my vision. My diplopia wasn’t discovered until I was 72 years old. I am now 75. I was prescribed prism glasses and the diplopia disappeared completely. At age 72, I had a minor stroke from which I recuperated completely. One year ago, after an MRI, I was diagnosed with a pinched sciatic nerve. That has been treated with laser, electropulse, etc. All of a sudden, about a month ago, I experienced severe double vision, lack of coordination in right hand/arm and great difficulty in walking as well as extreme headaches to the point of stiffening my cervical vertebrae.

My medication consists of:
Acetensil-20
Cardil-20
Vitamins B12, B1, B6
Paracetamol (acetaminophen), 1gm, in case of headache or leg ache
I took Adiro-100 (acetylsalicylic acid/aspirin) until a month ago at which time all aspirin products were restricted

The angiomas were visible on an MRI and confirmed a week later with another MRI.

Thank you; I share my story in case it can be of help.
