I had a stroke in 2009 I was not given any treatment. My GP said it was vertigo.This has gone on for years. My condition got worst.To the point that I had acute lack of walking and balance panic attacts fits jerking leg movements. My brain was not sending me any messages to my legs and feet.Every day I had no idea how to put one foot in front of each other.

Most days I could not stand up. YET I was left like this by my GPS

      Hi Sue

      Thanks for your message yes I have sought another GP but you only get a label put on your file.That she is mad. I have been to the surgury on two walking sticks hanging on to the walls because I cannot stand up.

      I have seen every GP at the surgury and many consultants  at the local Hosptial . But because I am complected no body wants to help.

      Only half of my brain is working. If you see me walk it looks like I am drunk. Because my brain is not sending me any messages due to my stroke. But nobody wants to listen. I even had to give up my job because I had so much sick leave.Whe I complain I get told we have done everything for her. We just do not know what is wrong with me.

      They keep saying it is my back neck hips legs so I spent thousands of pounds on treatment but none of it help. But of course all these clinics said they could help cure me. All of this was paid my self.

      But it is my brain that is the problem.

    Vertigo is extreme dizziness. You might treat it with a low salt diet. Make sure you're getting good nutrition with a nutrition drink from the pharmacy. You need appointment with a caring doctor. The nurse cares too

      Hi many thanks for your message.I have not got the dizziness any more.

      Its leave me with balance and walking problems. Nothing to do with my ears.All GPS think I am a joke.I keep telling them my brain is not sending any messages to my legs and feet.

      This has left me with panic attacks and fear. Its a form of deppresion.

      But not the normal kind. As every knows.
