I saw a consultant in the Heart and Lung department in mid-May following some sleep clinic tests I had done in April.
The consultant was very nice, but could not help me and referred me to Neurology. I had an EEG in June, but the lady who did the test said I would get the results when I see the Neurologist. I am having a brain scan in July at 5-25pm, then will have to wait for an appointment with the Neurologist.
I have been having episodes of loss of time since January. My GP referred me to the the sleep clinic in February. The problem is my husband is very distressed as he watches me go floppy and cannot wake me from these episodes.
I am upset because of my husband's distress and the length of time it is taking to get a diagnosis of whats happening to me.
