Hi, I have had what I would call a flare of my condition, where my right foot is floppy and slaps the floor when I walk. It gets worse when I have walked a bit far and am tired. Also my right shoulder has become weakened and painful, to such an extent that I have difficulty holding a kettle to make tea, or put my dressing gown on it's hook behind the door. I have seen my GP who arranged a CT. Several weeks have now passed and both symptoms have not gone away. The CT showed no sign of a stroke or tumour, nothing nasty were the words to describe it. There was some white matter, which has been attributed to aging or possibly TIA's. With my INR at 3.5-4.0 I find the thought of TIA's almost impossible. Is there or has anybody heard of such a thing. One other thing, My GP has referred me to the Mental Health Team who have been to interview me and may arrange an MRI following discussion with the clinical lead. The possible outcome could be a diagnosis of Alzheimer's/Dementia. Ho Hum!!
Merry Christmas to one and all, and may the New Year bring you what you wish for.
