Wow… Its been ages since I last blogged…
Anyway, since finishing my chemo and radiotherapy almost 3 years ago, I’ve had awful dizzy spells where I faint all over the place. It affects my day to day challenges big time as I get all uncoordinated and can’t walk straight, rather like a afternoon in the pub ( I wish).
I did ask a Macmillan nurse a few months ago if I was weird as I’ve never heard anyone else suffering like I am and she told me there’s a name for how I described my symptoms but couldn’t remember it.
Anyway, yesterday I emailed Macmillan and received a reply today.
I have Peripheral neuropathy
I'm so pleased i've finally found out what is wrong with me as i think some people think i'm making up how i feel...
Not good though that it can be with me for years... here's hoping they get a drug sorted out soon that will stop me banging into things and konking out at any given time!!
