Default Mini-stroke?

Think I might have had this yesterday. I was ok in the morning, felt absolutely fine, aside from some days of a strsnge diagonal back pain and neck pain. A bit after midday took a turn for the worse.

Seems I couldn't walk without help of the walls, trouble talking, slumped in chair in other room at work. I don't remember much, nor how long I was there (or why I went there). Seems I got up and said something about going for my son (normal at lunch I pick him up). A colleague was concerned enough that she called my partner.

I went to my computer and wanted to send a simple reply to someone before leaving. I couldn't do it. Less than ten words and error after error after error. Found the mail (unsent) today and it was garbage, not even my name was right.

Also a series of messages to another colleague that read no sense at all and she was asking if I was ok, I don't remember any of that.

Basically I don't remember anything from then to 7pm when I woke on my bed fully clothed without shoes.

Today I heard that another colleague said I was dizzy and having trouble standing. Another told me privately that all my actions were exactly how her father was when he had an aneurysm.

I feel ok today except for a headache type pain, not normal but inside the front part. My doctor is away until late, so I won't see him until the morning - I know I should check at hospital but I want to do my work and finish my stresses there.

Thoughts?

Sorry to hear that. I think you should wait to find out from the doc whether or not it was a stroke/aneurysm.

But yes, I personally think you had a stroke.

Thank you my friends.

Doctor saw me, did a number of checks and more so the history of what happened, and knowing my past in general. Pretty much sure that yes, the blood is not getting to the brain, so in the line of the TIA he says. He wants to do more tests later today.

Originally told me to go straight home but I refused, as I trust nobody to sort out my job without me, I'm too stubborn. I feel like something is squeezing my brain though, an immense pressure. Maybe due to another stupid fight with my partner over nothing.

You could have a variety of things. Sometimes mini seizures can come on like that, but it could be a number of things to do with circulation or otherwise and I'm no expert. It may not be anything any of us are guessing at. I hope you get to the bottom of it all soon.

I have recently been given a label for brain problems but not a lot of information beyond a kind of vague diagnoses that my symptoms just "happen" with no known cause. In this country they are most likely to throw some health changing, side effect causing drugs at you and a lot of social restrictions about what you can no longer do for yourself while never looking at any possible root causes or underlying problems. That is mostly how medicine is practiced here. Because of this I have spent hours searching for helpful information that could let me get to the roots of my possible condition(s). So far, the most helpful page I found is from "Ted's Remedies" at earthclinic.com. Here is one page of his responses to people about brain issues: https://ted.earthclinic.com/cures/epilepsy.html. See if any of it might help your needs? I am trying some of the vitamin recommendations he had for others who described anything close to my problem in case I can start fixing the underlying issues.

I am still waiting for my appointment to see a specialist doctor here. I hope he can help me by ordering some basic tests to see if my body is working like it should instead of just prescribing medicines. Good luck with your journey. It sounds like you are about to become the great detective for your own body. Its a hard road, stay strong if you can!

Thank you for this! I have for so long looked at, analyzed, stressed over, the mental side of my depression and more, but not much into the physical, so I will indeed now be looking a little more at the possible causes. Appreciate the link! Also, I do have Reynaud's - problems with circulation to hands and feet.

The doctor has visited Friday and Sunday, and from examinations wants to treat towards the stress, lower that side before considering other options if necessary. I can see I may have been looking at the worst-case scenario with the first post, so hopefully it is more simple.

I'm honestly more upset with my partner now. Over two hours with the doc on Friday (at home), who gave an injection that relieved the immense pressure around my head, and pills to sleep. He asked her to look after the kids, that I would be out like a light apparently. Ten minutes later she announced she was going out with friends at 10pm (it was 9.15pm at the time). Didn't ask how I was, if the doc said anything to be concerned about, nothing. Not a single fucking word as to my health. And instead of her 10pm to midnight that she said, 4.20am she arrived home. Meanwhile the doc tripled my dosis to sleep and I still didn't sleep until the next night.

I'm banned from working away from the office now, and I don't know what to think over my partner, don't want to get upset but her actions... I don't want to think there's more to that time out on top of all else.
