It would help you clarify things if you have your diagnosis. Were you admitted to hospital. If so, then when you left, the hospital doctors will write to your GP, with a diagnosis. You are entitled to a copy. The GP staff will get you a copy.
I do wish that non medical people would stop declaring you are in denial. Quite honestly, its a big put down. The stroke that bit me was a classic, simple, unmissable and uncomplicated stroke. It was a full stroke, clot not bleed and the diagnosis was ischemic right lacunar infarct. I could not possibly misunderstand the stroke. Initially paralysed. Consultant showed the MRi scan, a small white ball of dead cells. I have the diagnosis in writing. Yet big mouth wider family have declared I am in denial. It really does bug me.
The head scan, will probably (?) be an Mri which will search for any damage. I am guessing there will be no damage.
Lets hope so
