Good News! All’s well! Thank you all for your kind “Get Well Messages”
The Doc did all the tests associated with stroke diagnosis, shining a torch in my eyes, following his finger side to side , up and down, sticking a pin in me at various points asking if I felt anything and of course, up on the bench so he could run the good old stethoscope over me! Only took 30mins and $17.30 thank you very much! Good value for a good result.
ladymuck He looked in my ears, couldn’t find anything untoward, but decided to send me to an ear fellow anyway just in case! He didn’t mention the Epley manoeuvre, but I tried that on my own having read about it, but the creaking noises made by all the gravel in my neck made me stop for fear of copping a bigger problem.
Urmstongran Yes, that’s the feeling; not very nice is it, especially when you’ve not even had a drink.!?
You won’t remember, but the previous time put me into hospital on Valentine’s Day, a day to remember, and a whole battery of scans, but nothing found. Talk of “Crystals in the ear”i.e. BPPV, but that was it. No firm conclusions. Scary thing is that it can re-occur at any time as you found.
Megs No chance of overdoing things! Looking back I rather enjoyed 30 hours in bed even though I was on my own! Snug as a bug in a rug under the Doona whilst Winter duly arrived outside and now we’re in for 13C max. for days.
Meeting up with family members will be a real highlight as time goes and as some say “absence makes the heart grow fonder”
Aldom Despite what I said above, the curing of the crystals by that TV doc. could be worth a look just for interest, although doing it might be a problem. I haven’t thought of looking on YouTube, but would there be a chance of meeting him there I wonder? Must check!
fatgran Thanks"Buddy" No I'm not planning to vanish, voluntarily at least, although, like with BPPV it could happen without warning and find myself suspended again Glad to hear you’re well down there in Tassie, but I'll bet you're colder than us!
BlueSky Didn't mention wine of any colour! No2 Son took me to Docs and insisted on coming into surgery with me. He believes I never tell the full story after a visit to doctor! Fortunately he kept comparatively quiet and didn't make any disparaging comments about my lifestyle. Only when Doc said to drink lots of water did Ian pipe up and say “ he doesn’t like water!” I had to jump in to ask if tea and coffee qualified; yes, so other types of drink didn’t get a mention. Problem is that I have to rely on him to buy all my "sustenances" at the moment so no secrets!
Maw I read that you had cleared off! Fake news!? I’d composed a eulogy for you recalling all our good verbal jousting times! What brought you back, or hadn’t you really gone? Now I’ve had to tear it up in case there’s more to come!
Seriously though, thank you for amplifying my reference to “elsewhere”, as I hadn’t the time to do it, and knowing that you live in N.Bucks I can understand your allegiance to London, but from here the images could have been taken in any one of dozens of cities around the world! It was Anthony Newley wasn’t it who said “Stop the World” I want to get off!
For a moment I thought I was getting off too!
Oh well!. Good to be back and Thank you all once again
