I am a nurse following an assault where a patient kicked me in the head I became symptomatic which lead me to a&e approximately 5 weeks after the assault. I was given a CT scan which then discovered I had had a stroke. I am 51 and have found this diagnosis devastating.
I am waiting for all sorts of referrals for my various symptoms, left side numbness weakness, tinnitus, deafness, headaches, fatigue, crippling anxiety, nausea and depression.
I wondered if anyone has suffered a stroke following a similar incident. I was offered no support from my employers and was forced to work with the assailant until I left. The police seem reluctant to interview him until they see my medical records.
I feel very fearful for the future and almost paralysed at the moment any help advice or support would be greatly appreciated
