I recently visited the ENT dept at my local hospital for an ongoing ear problem.
The consultant a marvelous man gave me a thorough examination ! He had now produced a tuning fork something i thought was long gone from our consulting room's.
He discovered i had very little feeling in my right leg, yes i was amazed as you are because i had gone to him with an ear problem so why was he examining my feet ?
He didn't stop at my legs as he was now listening to my heart and went on to ask if i would mind if some one else could examine me, this examination took place.
I was now being told i have a heart murmur and a possible valve defect and he is going to refer me for an echo scan.
I have also had a couple of brain scans one done many years ago where scaring was found and a more resent one was now on the consultant's screen being viewed.
I was now being told not enough blood is getting through to the small blood vessels to my brain in fact he was surprised to hear i do not suffer from fainting episodes.........i was more surprised at what i was being told !
Does any one think these symptoms could be related to Hugh's ? ? ? Jill
P.s The ear problem that i went for is thought to be related to my jaw, not that i am so worried about that condition after hearing the outcome of the consultation.
