Yesterday on my way back from the bathroom, the tunnel vision, knee buckling collapse came so quickly that I couldn’t sit and instead came crashing down into a plan B sandwich board sign, first becoming confused then losing consciousness. Two public health nurses and a nurse supervisor found me, took my pulse and my blood pressure (both normal), then helped me back to my desk. The supervisor told me she couldn’t let me leave on my own, so L came to pick me up. I was told I had to call my neurologist. It was implied I should not return to work until I had some reassurance about what is happening.
I called the doctor while I waited for L. The MA gig back to me and told me they’ve ordered 3 additional tests. A 48 hour holt monitor, the carotid duplex ultrasound (already ordered and scheduled but not until June 2 as that was the “first available”- I’m told if will now happen in the next 4 days) and an EEG.
