Attended hospital last week and saw new doc who seems nice. For the last couple of months having real problems with my left hand, which gp thought was cts. Explained all my new symptoms to consultant who is now sending me to a neurologist, nerve specialist and for a brain scan plus something else but can't remember because my memory isn't great just now. She also took more blood for testing. My moods have been so up and down recently. 1 minute I'm ok the next I'm crying(which is not me at all). Think my manager afraid to talk to me in case I go into meltdown again. Seriously thinking of giving up my new position in work. I'm so tired all the time, can't remember things and not taking in all the new stuff I should be learning. On my feet 7hrs a day, which is not helping.
Doc says it could all be a coincidence the memory probs, mood swings, migraines,, dizziness, weakness in my left side, being unsteady on feet. She says not to worry but I am worrying. Yeaterday with my migraine my top lip started to go numb. What's that all about? My uncle had a stroke at 39. I'm 38 I don't want it to rule my life. I think I'm still coming to terms with the fact that I can't do the amount of stuff I did maybe 4-5 years ago. I was able to work 70 hrs a week and have a social life and cycling, walking. Now I'm struggling with 36 hrs a week and after a 20min walk with dog I'm exhausted.
Sorry for going on I'm just feeling a bit crap, not knowing what will happen in the next few months with all these other tests.
Hope everyone has a happy and pain free Christmas xx
