Firstly apologies because I feel this is going to be a long read but apart from anything else I feel such a need to put all this down in writing.
My partner of 28 years who is now 81 started feeling dizzy a lot and very very tired last Springtime. He was always very active especially in the Garden but because how he was feeling spent most of the Spring and Summer laying on the garden bench.
There were numerous visits to the Dr's being continually told to remember his age and to slow down even though it was explained he was falling asleep a lot during the day.
One Dr sent him for blood tests which showed lacking Folate but wasn't Anaemic. He had a course of B12 shots to increase the Folate they said and after the course was different again. Back to his normal self but after about 3 weeks (if that) the fatique and dizziness zoomed in again. I spoke with one of the Dr's asking about the shots but was told his blood tests were okay now so no more shots needed.
In November he appeared to have some kind of "turn". Speech a bit slurred and not making complete sense, I called the Ambulance and they felt he had a TIA. This episode resolved itself
If ever he's in Hospital he becomes so disorientated to the extreme and always has but when he 's discharged home that confusion leaves him.
