    Thanks people.

    I'm trying to distract myself with craft and YouTube. Have been for months. I had a couple of emergency visits a couple months ago where I basically got fobbed off and they did nothing. The symptoms went away for a while but they came back. I eventually saw the gp who immediately organized a referral for ct scan. I swear if it's bad news I'm going into that hospital and going ape at them. They treated me for a panic attack which i was having but that started after the symptoms started. I was freaking out and stressing out i was having a stroke, aneurism or something with how i suddenly felt drunk when I hadn't been drinking. Who wouldn't have a panic attack if that happened. They checked me for blood clots just in case then sent me on my way. All because I had a history of anxiety attacks a decade ago. I don't go to hospital for myself if it doesn't seem very important like life or death.

    At least this Dr asked if I had any family history of BT, how my head actually felt, what the pain felt like and if there were any unusual lumps or bumps, which there is.

    Sounds like you have an excellent GP and it's great you will get answers quickly. I have my fingers crossed for you.

    ((Hugs)) good luck tomorrow with your scan.

    Fwiw, I went through a very similar thing last year and was terrified that I had a brain tumour or had a stroke. It was very stressful and I felt like I was totally overreacting. I also had a head scan and everything turned out fine. Eventually it all went away with some meditation and increasing my fluid intake.

    Anyway, just hope you manage to get some rest tonight x
