2 years of suffering

I was diagnosed 5 days ago with a bent artery in my neck. Previously to my diagnosis I’ve been suffering with severe fatigue, dizzy, off-balance feet going numb. I was seen by 5 drs they all said it must be my meds that I take for my fibromyalgia, got off my meds, no change! 2 years later new insurance carrier, new dr found I am not getting enough blood to my brain. Wow, really scared me, now what happens?? He said bypass surgery, now I’m waiting for the cardiologist to call me to set something up. Does anyone know anything about this condition??
