Just spent 2 days in local hospital after sudden onset of left eyelid closing uncontrollably and intermittent double vision which came on whilst driving, rather alarmingly. Very impressed how seriously the AEU took it. Had blood tests, seen 3doctors and 2 consultants, had an MRI scan, a CT scan and got an appointment to see a neurologist. Ruled out TIA, stroke, diabetes, vascular inflammation, infection and waiting on results for Myasthenia gravis (thought unlikely) and embolism. And I am told it could be just ageing. All the above was considered urgent because I was anticoagulated.
Although it seems I have another condition to contend with, just as the AF looks to be tamed for the moment, I couldn't have wished for better treatment so maybe there could be advantages to being anti coagulated. (Written withn1 eye closed so excuse mistakes!)
