Just after alittle bit of reassurance. Tuesday or was it Wednesday - I forget which day ( nothing new there) I had a 2 - 3 minute relapse which scared me quite a bit. I work in an office for a charity (which I love) for three days a week. I was talking to a colleague regarding work on the phone when I went into lala land. My sentences became fragmented, I couldn't remember the previous word I had spoken and my thoughts went into fragmentation. I knew something was wrong and kept trying but could make no sense of what I was saying and just wasn't able to string any sentences together which made any sense. My friend and colleague who I was speaking with was very good with me and stayed on the phone with me until I returned to normal. The day was very hot and foolishly in my eagerness to get through my work i had not opened the window and not eaten lunch (it was 2pm) and had generally worked like a trojan all day. The concern for me is that I am a lone worker.
Of course I have since been to the doctors. She did the usual tests blood pressure temperature etc and has said that I appear to be fine. She however advised that should this happen again to seek immediate medical helpand if necessary to call the ambulance service.
I have thought about all of this and have come to an idea of what may have gone wrong for me. It may well have been a contributory factor that it was so hot. Definatley not a good idea to not eat all day and I need to think about how I pace myself at work. On reflection I was trying to do 2 days work in 1 - not doing that again - sorry employer. Was I posssibly de-hydrated? Has any one got any ideas?
Please please do not suggest that I shouldn't be working as this is not a possibility for me for so many reasons not least for my own personal sense of well-being. Obviously it did cross my mind that was I having another episode of encephalitis as the event was very similar to my condition when I was ill , although it was a very short time frame and went away within minutes. 4 days on and I feel fine. Has any one experienced anything like this?
