Hello. I used to visit here a few years ago. I have had neuro symptoms for 10 years now. I stopped visiting when I was told by my neurologist that this was a stroke. Then last year it was all change - now he says I have "neurolical episodes due to migraineous phenomena" - not stroke. My GP says this is a euphemism for " we don't know what this is. "
The only test I have had is an MRI which showed grey/white areas appropriate for my age (I am now 48).
Sadly symptoms have worsened and new ones have occurred - permanent slurred speech, poor co-ordination , balance & memory, right side weakness has worsened and there is now some left side weakness, permanent tingling in face and head (right side only) occasional loss of colour vision, permanent blurred vision and some double vision.
I am due to see my neurologist mid July when he hopes to discharge me - which I find annoying to be honest. I have given up work and now do a little paid writing from home. But my whole life has been curtailed by all this. I keep it altogether most days - I did have a really good three months spell of reasonable health earlier this year and then another attack occurred and I am back to square one. The fatigue is like I have been hit by a truck.
If you are still reading - well thanks. This is a brilliant space :)
If anyone has any tips re my next neuro consult I'd be interested to read them.
