My husband was in the conservatory and suddenly could not speak. When I asked him if he was all right he just mumbled and could not speak clearly, I thought his eyes also looked droopy. I was worried he was having a stroke or something so I called the 999 service.
The lady who answered asked me how he was looking and must have sent the paramedic out immediately - the responder car arrived while I was still on the phone.
They did an EEG to check he was OK and reassured me that I had done absolutely the right thing in calling them. All the checks they performed were fine, they assured me that I should phone them immediately if there was any change in his condition. They really made me feel that I was not wasting their time.
