Early morning wakened and unable to use left hand properly. Had difficulty speaking and was a bit confused. Managed to phone 999 and within 20 mins was seen by two great lady ambulance paramedics. They promptly understood that I was suffering a TIA or a mini-stroke and had me into accident and emergency pronto.
There I was assessed, bloods taken and hooked up to ECG.
All in all I really wanted to thank everyone from 999 dispatcher, ambulance crew and the wonderful staff at ARI.
Thank you all and great work to be proud of
