I'm a 60 year old school teacher ... In the last decade I have survived a massive subarachnoid brain haemorrhage , two knee replacements, two carpel tunnel decompressions, two elbow arthroscopies, two shoulder decompressions and a cholecystectomy. A year ago, after a virus, I was diagnosed with bilateral sudden sensoneural hearing loss so have two hearing aids. Three months ago I was diagnosed as having double cataracts!!!!!! .....THEN two months ago, on my way home from school, I had a "funny turn" - I just felt really giddy (not dizzy) and my vision felt wrong (not double) ...I couldn't walk straight. I went to out of hours GP who was excellent and pushed me quickly through to A&E ....I had a CT scan, MRI scan , blood tests etc all of which came back normal! Then I was diagnosed as having had a TIA ! Sent home on new meds ....a week later I had a repeat "funny turn" which they now have said was a second TIA.
The strange thing for me is the fact that all my tests were normal..... I feel fine-no different than I did before the episodes. I have some memeory issues but they have been since my brian haemorrhage six years ago.
I've had no follow up appointment yet and do feel that I need to see someone ......just in limbo a bit .....not allowed to drive so can't get to work! .....this has led to lots of anxieties and financial concerns. I'm hoping to return to work in a month or so ...it would really help to chat to others.
