"Epilepsy unit"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

Yesterday I attended my appointment with the Neurologist, who asked me about my past and childhood in which they believe I have NEAD although I still believe my blackouts and attacks are not related to NEAD as I have had 2 or 3 different types of head injury in the past and have had different attacks, sharp head pains and migraines with a pressure sensation in my head causing me to blackout or fit along with numbness, weakness and pain in my arms or legs not triggered by stress or NEAD, which could be related to my nerves esp when waking from sleep and there are things they missed out on, which should be investigated and sent for tests in my next appointment. The Neurologist was however excellent in investigating my attacks, they were very understanding, professional and caring as the Neurologist told me to do a test to see an attack in which I had an episode and has referred me to see seizure therapists and epilepsy nurses, thank you for your ongoing investigation and support from Neurology the receptionist were very helpful and great too. Excellent!
