You're Not Right in the Head

Thursday, November 15, 2018

For over a week now, I've been really noticing that my vision has been blurred more than normal, even with my glasses on. I've also noticed that my speech has become burdened and slurred. Making it difficult to form sentences and to carry on a conversation. I've been running into walls, doors, and more straight on, and not intentionally.

In other words, I'm scaring myself.

So, on Tuesday, I went through a series of tests and scans. However, the scan came back normal, which has left me confused. Why am I not feeling normal? So, my doctor has referred me to a neurologist, and unfortunately, I have to wait until February 5th to get in. In the meantime, my job is taking a hit while I wait. I need to get better so I can work. I can't take off again. I just can't afford it.

    Do NOT stress over this--may make it worse. You do what you can.

    I agree with NANA SUEH - this is an emergency! Go straight to the nearest ER and tell them what is going on. They will have Neurologists on staff at the hospital. I have had 2 serious head injuries and it is vital to get to see a doctor as soon as possible. Best wishes & I hope you get some answers quickly.

    Your speech is slurred and you're walking into walls and your doctor doesn't consider this urgent? Minimally, get back with your regular doctor to let him/her know about the delay. There may be another doctor available who can see you sooner.

    This is not good. This is a time to be a squeaky wheel.

    Keep fighting.
