I was taken to A@E from work, witnessed by paramedic a TIA. The first response team in stroke bit was very efficient , but after not finding any abnormality on CT scan was told if I can walk I can go home. I on,y took 3 steps and walked into a SATS machine at that! Was sent home and told I would be fine in a few days. After 2 weeks I still had no movement in my left side of my body. Went to GP who organised MRI scan and medication to prevent a further stroke. Nothing found on MRI scan with it being 3&half weeks later. So now 5 months on I still cannot walk unaided, have had to self refer for help and buy my own wheelchair etc. had an appointment to see neurology in month 6, now been told my appointment has been moved another 2 and half months backwards.... I feel very let down as I may not be getting the correct help I need due to still waiting for a vital neurology appointment as can't be fully treated for a stroke just on case neurology think it could be something else I have! Life's on a standstill regards recovery nearly 8 months wait for a maybe diagnosis.....
