I had a Hemmoraghic Brain Stem stroke June 7 2011. I was in CCU for 6 days and have been followed by a Neurologic faithfully since. I have had several annoying physical symptoms such as vertigo, nausea, double vision, and the worst ongoing migraines that plague me on a daily basis but the one that gets to me is that I have not shed a tear since the stroke. I'm not sure if the stroke is the cause of me not crying or if it is a psychological issue related to a personal crisis that I have been dealing with since a year earlier. My brother did something really bad (REALLY BAD) and I have been trying to come to terms with since then. I cried the day I got the news, but no tears since then. Could my stroke be playing a role in me not crying? Any help you could give me would be GREATLY appreciated.
