After about 4 hours of tests and discussion they decided that they thought I had something called a ‘TIA’ which is a kind of ‘mini-stroke’ which is something that can sometime signal an impending larger stroke. I was booked the next day to be sent to a ‘TIA Clinic’ in High-Wycombe to have follow-up tests and was sent home. Go here to the start of the journey. Go here for next blog entry.
