Hi everyone, just got back from holiday at the weekend. First day there my wife and I went down for dinner, the restaurant was really hot, like a greenhouse, due to the whole of one wall being made of glass. Anyway we chose our meal from the buffet and when I started eating I felt a bit light headed, then I could not lift my left arm up properly to move my fork to my mouth. my speech was unaffected but, I felt. Well. Strange. When we finished our meal and I got up, I could not walk properly, my left knee would not bend. To be honest I was walking like a zombie!! My wife was extremely worried. However after rehydrating myself the symptoms passed. We enjoyed the rest of our holiday with no more problems. Now to me it is weird because at the time my TIA was occuring, my wife looked at me and asked if I was ok. I said no, if I did not know better I would say I was having a stroke!! Now seeing as I have never been really ill or know anything on strokes where the heck did that come from??? Anyway after getting home and ringing my sister who is a nurse. I got my stubborn male torso to the doctors who diagnosed a probable TIA. I now await a hospital appointment. Could anyone on here advise me what to expect and give me advice please as this seems to be a very grey area to research into on the net. Thank you in advance.
