"I want to find out what is wrong"

About: University Hospital Hairmyres / Neurology

(as a service user),

Over the last few years I have been falling a lot in a number of diffrent ways. I have had a few tests done now. They have came back more or less ok. I have also been waiting for an E. E. G at Hairmyres for the past 18 months now. Due to the fact I do not know why I am falling, I am not going out with anyone as I am worried about falling. Not the first time I have had a black eye or badly cut face. My wife is going to work with the worry as I am falling and knocked my self out before so it is now putting pressure on my wife and other family members.

All I want is to find out what is wrong then maybe  I can get on some form of treatment. Due to worrying I have also started to be very hard to live with due to mood swings and very bad panic attacks (feels like I am going to die). My hands tremor. I just wish I could find out what's wrong. It's getting me really down. Wish I could get this E.E.G test done maybe then I can find out why?

Dear spambo

I am very sorry to hear of the difficult time you have been having recently and the impact this is having on you and your family.

As no personal details should be posted on Care Opinion it would be best for you to get in touch with your consultants secretary - if you know who that is. If not then please contact me via my secretary on 01355 584488 and I will see if I am able to assist in getting you an appointment for E.E.G.

Best Wishes

Angela

Dear spambo

Thank you for getting in touch with us to provide further details. I believe my colleague Eileen has been in touch and is assisting you with follow up for E.E.G in Glasgow.
