Hi all.
Firstly apologies for not being on the forum very much but I've only had my phone to use for a while and I find it hard yo type on it.
The "episodes' I have are this" start to go light gwaded, sort of in shock, disoriented, people/surroundings unfamiliar,  can hear myself in my  gwad saying who I smcWhere I luve but loss of soeech. Abiut 6 episides in  8 yrs. Concides with ME diagnosis. Seems to be adrenal driven. Seeing doctor this afternoon. Waiting for resulrs  of  MRI. They think could be warnings if pre stroke

Hi Eliz,

It is of course the right thing to get checked out with the scan because, yes, it COULD be signs of a stroke coming. But please don't panic because those symptoms are also classic of two other things - CFS/ME  and high anxiety - and I think it's far more likely to be one of those than an impending stroke.

Let us know how the scan goes?

Best wishes

Roger

I've come to the same conclusion Roger. It's either extreme fatigue or adrenaline rush caused by anxiety or both. I had gp appt today anyway and he's inclined to agree with both of us. Results of scan not known yet.

Thank you
Eliz

Hope it's not stroke related Eliz and would tend to agree with Roger on this, but good that they are checking you out on it.
It sounds more likely to be a more extreme reaction that many of us get with ME when we drive ourselves too hard or of course sometimes things get beyond our control to reduce this reaction.

I have had similar symptoms when I am feeling about to pass out - not had it in many years thankfully but reminded me that it was pre being diagnosed with underactive thyroid, so make sure they check you on that too if they haven't already - fainting can be caused by low blood pressure which many with ME and underactive thyroid get.

You and Roger are right Aggie and that was what I was relating it to. Anyway its noted now and am also waiting for the results of the MRI but I don't think that will show anything.
