"Regular left sided weakness"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske) / Neurology

(as the patient),

In the last 5 months I have had attacks which have left my left side paralysed. At first it was thought I was having strokes, it turns out they are not strokes and they do not have answers for what it is.

I am now back in again and they are now basically suggesting I am mad. I had a doctor see me today and did not make the conversation very private and let the whole ward know I should see a physiologist. Made to feel very bad and that I am basically wasting there time.

Not very happy at all, feel embarrassed and ashamed.
