Hopefully I won’t rabbit on and not make any sense, I am really nervous about this as you all seem so informed and rational. I am uninformed and irrational [ I first posted this on someone eles’s post cos I didn’t know how to do it. Sorry to the person].
I am 48 and for the past couple of months my walking has deteriorated to the point that I can’t walk further than 50 yards without needing a rest. 70 year olds are tutting behind me because I am holding them up!! I also seem to ‘swing’ to the right when I walk and I can’t stop myself from doing this. My lovely sons seem to find this hilarious as they say I walk like a duck!!! I have also been experiencing a circle of bright light in my left eye which grows bigger and bigger until it vanishes. This takes approx. 10 minutes to clear. I am also suffering with extreme fatigue, but although I need to go to bed my mind stays active and I don’t sleep. The strangest of all [ please don’t laugh] is that sometimes when I have a cold drink I seem to forget to swallow???
My GP has had my bloods done and they have come back normal. Today I went back to see her and she tested my legs, eyes, reflexes and balance. She told me that I needed to see a Nueroligist but because the first appointment isn’t available until the middle of June she has arranged for me to see a Medical Consultant at the local hospital tomorrow. As I was in shock when she told me this I forgot to ask her any questions [muppet]. So I am confused as to how this will help me as surely I will still need to see a Nuerologist?
Hope you can help and thankyou for time reading this.
