It’s like this…
A 54-year-old male close relative of mine who doesn’t have MS has had episodes of collapsing in the night en route to the bathroom. His partner has then found him collapsed on the floor and has had difficulty rousing him. She’s quite a forceful lady, so if she’s finding it difficult he must be out cold!
Of course, being a bloke, he’s brushed these episodes away.
But he collapsed early this morning, then couldn’t remember “new” things around him when he was roused.
For example, he can’t remember some painting jobs that were done in his home yesterday, nor a trip to a cafe yesterday, but he can remember the film they watched last night. No problems with his speech nor limbs, before you all shout “TIA”. He’s quite tall so theoretically should have high blood pressure, though I don’t actually know about that…
Anyway, he’s gone off to A&E and will hopefully get some good medical attention and be able to do something to correct the cause of the problems.
Obviously the doctors will be a better bet than you lot for a diagnosis - but we womenfolk are bothered that something might get missed in the rush of A&E. Have you got any ideas / knowledge please? News of similar experiences, solutions and outcomes welcomed.
