So the weekend before last I went numb down the left side of my leg. Having fibro meant that no alarm bells rang immediately. It got worse and spread to my arm neck and back of the head and my speech was slightly slurry. 111 sent out a paramedic and they did routine checks and took me to the hospital where I had to wait for 4 hours to see a doctor who said I’d had a tia. Gave me aspirin and sent me home. Last Thursday went for a full check over and there is no sign of damage to my brain at all. The doctors spoke to me for sometime and the conclusion was that it may have been a trapped nerve or possibly a new symptom of the Fibromyalgia. Just changed my doctors and this new doctor has just put me back a week by telling me that that doesn’t mean I haven’t had a tia. As it is only a full stroke where damage has been caused to the brain. Confused and baffled now. He’s put me back on a drug called Clopidogrel which must be similar to aspirin. Has anyone had any of these symptoms or been through similar situations? Does anyone get total numbness as part of there fibro?
Much kudos to all sufferers.
