Hello, I am new on here. Eight weeks ago I was taken to A&E after having an episode. It started when I got up, feeling tired and not myself after having a bad nights sleep. I couldn't make sense of an email I was reading, and couldn't compose a two line email, it took me ten minutes to do it. I put it all down to feeling tired at first. I then started talking gibberish in a meeting and the right side of my nose and lip were numb. I also had pins and needles in my right hand. My husband took me to hospital. My symptoms were almost gone by now but my blood pressure was extremely high and I had a banging headache. My CT scan came back clear, a Doppler scan was normal and an MRI I had three weeks after the incident came back clear. The doctor is putting it down to migraine and I have no follow up appointment. I am going to see a Neurologist privately with Bupa. I hope he can help me, as I am worried it might happen again. Has anyone on here experienced similar symptoms and the doctor diagnosed you wrong.
