Im hoping someone out there can help me out.
I have just returned from the A & E Department of my local Hospital after being sent their by my GP due to my having 2-3 seizures a day and having a real bad headache down the left side of my head and weakness on my right side.
After being treated as what can only be described as a slab of meat I was told that I was having pseudo seizures to cover up my stress that I was under and that the medication I was on was enough to knock out a horse and that I was using these seizures to get out of situations.
I did try to assure the Doctor that I am not stressed and am just a normal 35 year old mother of two wonderful kids, who is happily married and works full time but all he said was that he was trying to give me the chance to "admit" that I knew I was doing this in order for him to help me further. When I assured him that I dont remember going into seizure and that this had been the case for 12 years he then said he couldnt help and that I would have to wait 7-8 weeks for a so called urgent referral. To say I feel totally disheartened and extremely upset would be an understatement and although I am waiting to see my GP on Tuesday and I dont know what to do now.
Any advice anyone can give would be really gratefully received.
Please help as I want my life back.
