I passed out while on the M6 in October and its taken this long to get to this stage.
Nasty!

You were lucky to come to a halt without serious harm. Or were you already stationary?

Enjoy the flashing lights that go with your EEG! Hope all goes well with the 48hr ECG.

Re: Having my portrait taken tomorrow

Yes I was very lucky...one moment in middle lane then almighty noise and car was side on being pushed along slow lane by a Juggernaut....it kept slamming into me as its brakes were coming on and off all the time...i was just waiting for my car to turn over but we both came to a halt safely.
Had to declare to DLVA I had passed out and waiting to see how long I have to keep off the roads.Cant get out to take any pics unless on the bus.

Lucky indeed. A good cure for constipation as well I would imagine.

Sorry to hear this, Keith, it's rather worrying that you passed out on the M6. I know what you mean by hoping they find something; it's far worse if, despite all your problems, they find nothing! That's my big fear.

Good luck and I hope you are easily cured.

That must have been terrifying, thank goodness you came to no harm.

That does sound like a pretty horrific ordeal Keith. Hope the tests are less traumatic and they sort out the issue.

Re: Having my portrait taken tomorrow

Hope things turn out good for you Keith.
I too am having my portrait taken, tomorrow. And now have to take laxatives all day, so guess where the camera is going in the morning
I had this procedure a couple of years ago, might have mentioned it on here, the hospital used Oly cameras, which gave me a talking point with the operator. Looking forward to tomorrow afternoon, when it will be all over.

Best of treatment, Keith, I know how worrying these days are, the mind plays nasty tricks of imagination, and a final diagnosis is, when it comes, welcome.

Hmmm, As I know, it's not pleasant and you have my sympathy. At least you know what to expect, having had it done before. Good luck and, most important, I hope the results are good.

Re: Having my portrait taken tomorrow

Thanks everyone for the best wishes...sorry John for high-jacking your post.

The passing out came as a final thing for the year as I have been having a terrible time with all sorts of problems....pains all over - terrible sciatica - 2 frozen shoulders etc etc, all of which had made it so hard to work and getting there worse.I was going to work when I passed out.As well as that I was consistently feeling nauseous and tired.
The only diagnosis was ....OLD AGE...ha ha.
I scoffed at this at first but think it could be right...my body has just had enough...I have noticed so many people who seem to have the same problems as me since I can only get about by walking and on the bus and get time to study them. Walking is a good thing because sitting around just makes everything worse.But when I have managed to get out with the camera the walk there is O.K. but standing and actually taking th pics brings on the back pain.
Cant get to work at the moment as no car and I retire in July 2017 but that seems a long way off at the moment.

Hope everyone attending hospital/clinics get a positive outcome.

I actually wonder if you might be suffering form some kind of food intolerance. There are certain foods that seem to cause or exacerbate joint pain and arthritic conditions, which may also explain the feelings of nausea. Anything that makes it difficult to move around will make you tired too.

Anyhow, I hope everyone gets their various ailments sorted soon.

No worries from me about hijacking the post, Keith, I'm sure we are all greatly concerned by your misfortunes. With chronic, ongoing health problems the financial implications are often overlooked. It's bad enough constantly feeling ill or in great pain, but it becomes much worse when you have to worry about what will happen when you are unable to work. Sympathy from your employers only extends so far, even with the best of them, and contrary to popular public opinion the DWP do not make it easy to claim benefits. It seems that the people with the most genuine needs get the least amount of help. You really have my sympathy, Keith, and I hope things work out as well for you as they possibly can.
