All clear

After another hospital appointment the specialist has decided that the original TIA (mini-stroke) diagnosis was incorrect. Having now had the chance to study all of the tests they show no lasting damage.
The tests have thrown up the severely under active thyroid and this is now considered to be the reason for my "attack" (for want of a better word), even though she can find no real link between thyroid and my symptoms that day. So I'm still a bit confused as to exactly what happened. But if it hadn't happened I would probably never discovered the thyroid problem, which, now I know about it and it's symptoms, explains a lot of minor seemingly unrelated things, and is easily treatable. Definitely the lesser of two evils.
At the end of the day, whatever happened that day, it's caused no damage, that's good enough news for me.

  1. Glad all is well, Wurz. Thumper has the same thyroid problem as you, but the pills keep her on the straight and narrow.
