Long-term side effect make living hard

10 years ago after I suffered from Sudden Cardiac Arrest and was without oxygen for 11 minutes, I woke up from my medical induced coma with little visual side effects. I was able to breath, talk, and walk within my 11 day hospital stay. When I got home I would suddenly lose strength in my legs and arms after I woke up. When I talked to my doctor they sent me to a neurologist. After a few tests, I was told they didn't know what was wrong and since they couldn't do an MRI because I have an ICD there was nothing they could do.
