Hello, i just wondered if anyone can help me. If you have seen my posts before i a currently being diagnosed with fibro i struggle daily with my severe pain but i still work full time and love to exercise and i believe this keeps me supple yet makes the fatigue worse.
Last Wednesday i had a funny turn while driving home from work, i was rushed to hospital as i had stroke like symptoms. I couldn't speak as my speech was slurred, my left side was numb and tingling, i felt weak i had a severe sharp pain in the front of my head and my eyesight had gone blurred i also felt like i wasn't with it, like someone had picked me up and put me somewhere i didn't know, i couldn't judge my space or get a grip of hat i was doing.
The hospital did a CT scan to check for a bleed on my brain, thankfully this was clear. They then did a lumber puncture (4 times as they couldn't get any fluid) to also check for a bleed, again this was negative. After 24 hours my symptoms had completely gone, i was just left very sore from the LP (and still am extremely sore with a banging headache!!!) but all other traces of what happened had gone. The hospital want to check for a blood clot to make sure i don't have any, but the specialist MRI scan i need where they use the dye to see it move around the body was booked up on Thursday and Friday and not in use over the weekend so i was sent home to recover and wait for an outpatients booking to come though in the next few weeks.
I am just wondering if anyone has experienced anything else like this, someone from my boyfriends work has fibro and has the same odd occurrence a few times before. If anyone has can you let me know your story please, this could give me alot of relief.
Thank you xx
