My husband has had three attacks so far, the worst being the last.He had a seizure at this point, and stopped breathing for a short while, He remembers nothing for at least 30 mins and was very confused for the next hour. All occurred after food at midday, after finding this site and reading many other peoples conditions we can identify other lesser attacks in the past. There doesn't appear to be any other trigger and he has not been diagnosed with anything even after a five day spell in hospital with tests being run.He has been sent home, signed off work for 6weeks and told nothing, they haven't even said they don't know what is wrong, which may seem daft, but even that would be a help at this stage. So we wait and hope he wont have another attack and if he does it wont be worse than the last. He is 60 years old and has several other illnesses all of which are mentioned by various people among these pages, we would be grateful for any info or guidance as to where we go from here. Why are we always made to feel we are complaining about nothing and feel stupid for mentioning our ailments.
