Engaged Couple's Medical Scare
Julianne, a licensed psychotherapist, got engaged last year to her boyfriend of five years, Pete. On the day they were to sit down with their travel agent to finalize the details of their wedding trip to Hawaii, Julianne suddenly got an extremely severe headache, coupled with a stiff neck and blurry vision.
Julianne was rushed to the emergency room, where she says medical professionals diagnosed her initially as having a migraine. " I said, 'I think I have a brain aneurysm,' and they said, 'No, don't be dramatic. You're OK.' And they sent me back out to the lobby to wait."
An MRI revealed that Julianne had indeed had an aneurysm. She had three surgeries, but the aneurysm still exists. She will have to undergo another surgery in the next six months. Julianne is unable to drive or work and doesn't know when she will be well again.
"I just want the best for Pete, and I don't want him to be with somebody who is possibly going to be disabled for the rest of their life," Julianne explains.
Dangerous Diseases: Back from Extinction?
Vaccines have reduced or eliminated many infectious diseases that have harmed or killed millions of people. Pfizer's chief medical officer Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall joins Dr. Travis to talk about how vaccines work, the benefits of vaccination and when it's time to make sure you are up-to-date on your vaccinations.
"The way to get the best benefit out of vaccines is to make sure that you have taken the whole recommended series for the vaccination," Dr. Lewis-Hall explains. "And it isn't just kids or students that should make sure they are up to date on their vaccinations. Adults really need to pay attention to this."
