In May I woke up at 10am I was unable to lift my left arm more than two inches off the bed and I was unable to lift my left leg. I thought it was a fibromyalgia attack so waited 20 minutes for it to ease. It didn't. My husband telephoned our GP surgery at 10. 30 am and requested a home visit. At 12. 55pm the duty GP rang us and told us to ring 999 and state suspected stroke.
The ambulance arrived at 1pm and I was admitted to Princess Royal Hospital. The stroke nurse was in the bay at A&E waiting for me to arrive. I was given a CT scan and then informed I was going to Ward 16 the stroke ward. The next morning my symptoms had eased and I was discharged at 4pm with medication.
In June I was unable to move my left leg, left arm and the left side of my face had drooped. Again I was admitted to Ward 16 I informed them I had my medication with me but they would not let me take it. The next morning the symptoms had worn off again and I was discharged home at 11am.
It is now September and my husband has just received a text on his mobile informing me I am going to Clinic 5 at RSH with no details of consultant or why I have received the appointment. I presume this is the follow up from my MRI scan on in July but have no letter confirming this.
