    You really would have no choice because you have to be sure it isn't a stroke or the signs of a major stroke about to occur.

    I understand that migraine sufferers are at a higher risk of CVA or stroke.

    I thought they said Judge Judy was taken for stomach reasons. Maybe it was just an excuse at the time...

    I read an article a couple of weeks ago where it mentioned that the reporter suffered a migraine. The person who wrote the article suffered them herself and would do the same thing as the reporter before the onset of a migraine.

    I didn't realise migraines could be so bad. I know that people get really severe diabilitatin headaches but never knew that they could get symptoms like that.

    I was treated for migraines when I was a college student. Years later, on the day I had my CVA, I didn't even have a tiny headache. For me, both were preceeded by really hot weather which significantly increased my blood pressure. My speech wasn't impaired at all. I did have a TIA before the stroke but didn't know what it was. The side of my mouth was slightly pulled. I only realized it when it went back to normal.

    On the incident with Judge Judy, I heard one report that she was feeling faint on set. She blamed the problem on fatigue and said she would be back filming in two weeks.

    Ah. Yes, of course, :sekret: the US military is to blame for everything, and we all know that the Grammys and a daytime showbiz courtroom are two of the infamous hotbed testing grounds for military maneuvers. ;)

    I get migraines about once a month, but I also am occasionally stricken with brief gibberish episodes either before said migraines or standalone. Usually it's just an wrecked sentence, but sometimes longer ... but yes I sound exactly like the reporters in those two clips. My audience is usually one or two people ... and if needed I just stop talking for a few seconds (I'm generally not in the middle of report on nat'l/int'l television).

    While the overlying vascular situation has me aptly more worried about future propensity for stroking than I would be (silver lining: I live an even healthier lifestyle than I otherwise might have), I know exactly why what happens happens. And I know what's not to blame. :lol: The US military has not been testing its brainwave mixing-up technology on my everyday life for the past 25 years.

    Wasn't the original article published on April 1st? Just saying.
