Hi all. I am a 54 year old woman who had a mild heart attack last May. I don't suffer from high blood pressure and I'm not diabetic. Two weeks ago I was visiting my brother and I was out in his garden and collapsed. I was aware of going down but couldn't stop it from happening g. I thought I was just going down on my knees but next thing I was aware of my whole body slumping to the ground. Once down I tried to lift my head and couldn't. I had no strength in my arms legs or head and realised I would just have to lie there for a while. I think it was about 15 minutes later I got some movement back in my arms and was able (with more determination than I'd ever used in my life before) to slowly get myself up off the ground. I went, very slowly, to the bathroom and my face was covered in blood. I had bitten my lip quite badly and also had scrapes and scratches in my face from the collapse. Ever since I have not felt well but unable to pinpoint where the unwellness comes from. I've had a few mild shooting pains in my neck and now I think I have a slight weakness in my right hand grip. Yesterday I had a terrible fuzziness in my head. I've had vertigo in the past and this fuzziness wasn't like vertigo. I'm beginning to think I may have had a TIA and worries as I haven't been to my GP.
