A regular customer called us up from Chester saying that she'd lost the sight in one eye for about 10 minutes or so. It had come back and she'd driven home but wanted our advice. Our advice was to go straight to the hospital to get checked out.
We got a phone call this morning to inform us that she'd done so and the hospital had diagnosed a mini-stroke. She's not allowed to drive for a month but had she ignored our advice and just left it, it could have led to a much more serious prognosis. We're really glad that its been caught quickly - but its a lesson to us all. If you think something is wrong, get it checked out immediately.
