Hi there all,
I'm looking for some help. Two months ago I was in the super market and I started to feel dizzy, I went to pick up a bottle of juice and dropped it straight away. My right hand started to go numb, so I thought maybe it was too hot in there, or the lights were too bright or something so I waited outside. My friend the took me home and my hand started to go more numb and eventually I couldn't even feel it in my pocket or type a text with it. By the time we got home (approx. 5mins later) I became very confused when trying to write something and things got progressively worse. I couldn't write, read or speak properly. My symptoms lasted around 20 mins.
I went to the hospital that night, and the Dr. diagnosed me with a TIA. Here are some of my stats:
21 yr old female
Heart rate (bpm): 64
Blood pressure: 110/72
Cholesterol/Glucose levels normal
Blood count normal
I've had the following tests:
Echo Bubble test
Arteries in neck scanned
The hospital have now released me from their care. I feel this is very unsatisfactory as I still have no answers as to why I had a TIA. One doctor went as far to say I could have imagined the symptoms. In my opinion, this is impossible.
I'm seeing my GP on Monday and am going to push for the following tests:
Blood clotting tests
Is there any other tests I should ask for? What other options should be explored?
I'd be very grateful for any help.
