Hi.My name is Carol Ann I am a fit 71 year old Psychotherapist CBT.I recently had a strange episode in the night like Vertigo followed by dizziness etc. I saw my GP who diagnosed possible inner ear issues. 2 weeks ago I went back feeling very unwell and he sent me to A&E because my BP which had been low for a few days, was very low and different in my left arm, much lower than my right. At A&E they did heart, chest, neck and head CTscans and blood screening,and could not find anything. They referred me for a Doppler scan on my arms. I went for that last Tuesday still feeling very ill and it showed a blocked artery leading to artery that supplies blood to the brain. Blocked 80%.I was sent back to A&E. They seemed very concerned and were going to send me to Morriston Hospital in Swansea as I live in West Wales, by ambulance. This obviously alarmed me. After waiting for confirmation from Vascular in Swansea, which they didn't get after sending the scans etc to the consultants secretary they sent me home. I now have an appointment in Swansea in April. Although I am trying to think that once assessed Vascular saw it okay to leave me until April, My concern is am I at risk, being at home with this condition? Also, if a stent is inserted as A&E thought would be the treatment, will all my symptoms go? I am worried as my husband is having Robotic Prostate removal next week and I need to be in Cardiff with him. Feeling like this not sure I will be able.
