4 months ago I posted about having a bit of a wobbly turn after a having a hot bath and breathing in domestos fumes while cleaning the mould from the bathroom tiles.
The paramedics were called out at the time who could find nothing wrong with heart, blood pressure breathing etc and advised me to see my GP. My GP saw me the same day and put this wobbly moment down to the hot bath or the domestos fumes but also wanted to refer me for a few tests.
The 1 EEG test involved wiring my head up to a load of electronic sensors and then flashing various speed flashing strobe lights in my face and the other EEG sleep test involved going a night without sleep and once again wiring my head up and lying in a quiet darkened room for 45 minutes while being observed and monitored.
I received a letter the other day to make an appointment with my GP as the results of the tests were in so I drove myself there wondering what the tests had shown as I felt perfectly normal while they were carried out.
My GP informed me that during the sleep test there was abnormal electrical activity going on around my brain so I am being referred to a neurological consultant and until I see him I cannot drive.
It seems there is a possibility this wobbly moment could have been an epileptic seizure so now its going to be down to the neuro consultant on whether they think it was a feint or a seizure.
Something definitely happened that day 4 months back and I'm pretty sure it wasn't a seizure but we'll now have to wait and see what the expert has to say.
Until then I will continue to get myself even fitter as my car is having a rest and my bus pass is going to see a lot more daylight.
I've recently cleaned the bathroom tiles again but I didn't use domestos and the windows were wide open for good ventilation. I will also be sticking to showers from now on, that one off hot bath seems to have caused me a few problems.
Be careful Healthunlockeders whether your cleaning yourself or your bathroom as who knows where it'll end up.
