LIMBO

Well, good morning!
Yeah I know, I haven't posted for a while. Dunno what's up with me, but I have so much time with Phil as his new job gives him so many days off due to flying regulations, it's bliss.
Apologies to all you guy's out there who's blogs I normally read. I will get round to ya, honest!

Anywayyyyyyyy, Limbo, so why am I in Limbo you may ask? It's a long story, and a weird one.

I've been off for the past week and and a half without a car too as the Dr won't let me drive.
A couple of Tuesday's ago I was having lunch at work and bam, I was out cold on the floor at the time I was laughing my head off as someone had told a dirty joke ;-)
It's like someone pulling the plug from your big toes and then the paralysis starts. You can here people talk, you can grunt but can't move a muscle.
It's like an elephant is parked on top of you, you feel like a dead weight. They managed to get me outside and I came round after what seemed a life time and then bam, off we go again.

Now, this isn't the first time it's has happened, its the third time now but its been spread over a period of about 12 years. The last time was about eight years ago and I ended up in hospital for a week having tests.

They couldn't work out what it was then, there was talk of narcolepsy, but that didn't seem to get anywhere. So today, I'm off to see a neurologist for the second time in my life so let's see where we go from there shall we?

This feeling is horrible. Imagine being able to here everyone around you but not being able to respond. I remember my hands and feet tingling and the paramedic telling me that he couldn't get any blood from the end of my finger as they were so cold.
Three times it happened that day, but they let me out of hospital after going through the last lot of notes and today's the day I see the neurologist.

I HATE feeling like this as I feel I have no control over my body and not being able to drive has made it even worse.
I had to walk to the Dr's this week as Phil was away for two nights, but hey, I liked it and the sun was shining so it was even better. There are no foot path's where we live only cycle paths, so I walked along those.

I'll let you know how I get on and let's hope they find something this time so I can have some sort of closure.

Love yas PP xxxxxx

Hi Gaz,
What a scare ... I can't imagine what that must be like. I hope they figure out what it is and are able to treat it ASAP.
Best,
Marty

Waiting to see a neurologist is scary, I've been there. Waiting for an MRI appointment is scary, I've been there too. Waiting for the follow-up with the neurologist is scariest of all but whatever he comes up with, it's better to know than not.

I just hope you don't have to have your head off.

OMG, Gaz, I hope they figure out what's wrong REAL SOON - that's so scary!! I remember when my dad passed out a couple of times when he was younger. He'd be walking through a restaurant or something, and suddenly just go down. For no reason! They did all kinds of tests, never did figure it out. He stopped smoking his occasional cigars, and eventually, the passing out stopped. He just celebrated his 88th birthday, thank heavens.

Anyway, I hope you feel better and get some answers soon!!

hugs,
Carol

Hello Gaz,

I do hope that you are able to get some news from the doctor that must have been a scare. I hope that you have a nice Sunday. Do take care of yourself and your loved ones.

O sweet man this is heart-tugging news! I shouldn't been at the blogs sooner - you know, it sounds an awful lot like a neuropathy-related anomoly, but who's to say. If it's recurring but over years-time, as you age anything that stayed dormant can come to the fore alot more often yet still not be anything to pray over, if you follow where I'm drifting. One hint: If your legs or arms fall asleep, as we all experience, that's your CNS. A highway of connections affecting every part of your body, but not to the extreme. Let's hear what the pros say. Having an alphabet after your name can come in handy times like this. Please keep us up to date if you feel. Miss you dearest friend.

It's been quite some time since you have posted to this blog. How are you? Was the neurologist able to make a diagnosis? I've missed you and I hope that you are well.

Cathy said...

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, sending very positive vibes to you both.

Dawn said...

OMG... I really hope you come back soon to fill us in! I have been praying for you... and I am blogging again. :-) Have they checked for Guillen Barre syndrome?

be well...

Dawn said...

Gaz,

I have been checking back here... and you haven't posted! Please check in!

be well....

Cathy said...

Another month gone, still missing and thinking of you both. Are you alright? <8

Cathy said...

Another month! Never think you didn't have friends here, m'dear.
