    Re: Never asked before,could really do with some words and hugs.

    I'm glad they've come back fine but this must be very frustrating for you? Now a vascular surgeon too. Do they have any ideas what's going on? I bet that was all you needed, a panic over being taken in by ambulance?

    Are you feeling a bit better now?

    Cheers Terry, No not feeling any better, I really don't know what's going on it's been a horrid year and I can't believe all this hasn't tipped me over the edge. I've never felt so ill and it's definitely not anxiety related. My partner phoned 999 I was so light headed I couldn't stand up, my feet were cold, my shins went numb, my left arm and neck went numb, my blood pressure went up to 160/100.

    The paramedics were absolutely fantastic. They did an ECG and all the other regulars and felt my feet and said they're taking me straight in to hospital. I was seen by a stroke specialist straight away, cannula straight in my hand, ECG and blood tests. Afterwards I was seen by the a&e doctor who spent about an hour with me checking everything. They sent me home at 6.30am with an urgent referral to the vascular surgeon. So all that on top of everything else that's been happening this year it might be heart related

    Luckily I had my partner with me, her sister lives 2mins away so came round to look after the little one. Got to a&e at 12.00am sent home at 6.30am walked in and the little one woke up. My poor partner had no sleep for 44hours.

    I have an old Triumph Bonneville 750,it has been reworked on and a new paint job and I love it. I started off riding a dirt bike then a Honda Goldwing but that was so bloody heavy,I came off it going around a sharp corner so I sold it and bought a Trumpy.

    Wow, a Goldwing! They have reverse gear, don't they?

    She must have been knackered. I bet she slept like a rock the next night.

    It could be something easily fixable still. If it was something major given the time involved you would think you would have been in the hospital many months ago. Let's hope it's something the surgeon can resolve and then your life returns to as it was before. .

    I'm so sorry to hear this, Matt. One thing after another..I do hope your appointment with the VS comes through asap and hassle them if there is a delay? Very frightening ambulance experience for you and your partner but at least you were thoroughly assessed although it must be so frustrating that you are being passed around the consultants..

    Sorry to hear about your friend. And I hope you get sorted out soon. I'd be beside myself by now so you're doing a fab job of keeping it together x

    Re: Never asked before,could really do with some words and hugs.

    I thought i would restart this thread as i just seem to be getting anywhere with this. I've now been severely off balance and lightheaded for 37 weeks 24/7 non stop. This is on top of all my other symptoms that i've had going on for over 12months and some for 18months.

    All this landed me in A&E at the start of August. My GP was told to refer me on an urgent basis to see a vascular surgeon, this ended up taking 10weeks and would have been 16weeks if i hadn't pushed. The outcome was everything was normal and the surgeon said i should see a neurologist. My GP has been totally unwilling to help me, my appt for my neurology appt came through today for 9/5/18 27 weeks after being referred and 9months since being taken to A&E when they thought i'd had a stroke FFS and that's as far as i've got.

    I'm full of frustration and i'm not me at all. Once again i've read on here today about someone going to their GP and getting tests and seeing a consultant within weeks. How does that happen?

    I've just had ENOUGH!!!!!
