Collapse at work

From: Linda Martin


I had a funny turn at work a couple of weeks ago. This was after having had a group photograph in the office. I returned to my desk and thought I could see a blue = sign moving over the keyboard. I tried to move this mark away with my hand and the next minute vaguely remember saying I didnot feel very well. Panic set in then and to cut a long story short I ended up in A&E being told maybe I had had a stroke. I was transferred to MAU where I was eventually advised that my bloods were all ok and that maybe I had the start of late onset migraine. I am having to have a 24hr cardiac tape at some time but I feel fine now. Any suggestions. I am quite interested but feel pretty daft that this happened to me. Thanks for any input. Linda
