And unfortunately the answer was Yes.
This is one of many times over the years that I have not liked the fact I was right.
Let's face it ‘when you have the tee shirt on something’ you kind of know.
The first question she asked me when she found out was had I heard of the word Laryngospasm before I was diagnosed, and the honest answer was no, I hadn’t.
It’s not the sort of word that had ever come up in a conversation and she said until she heard me use the word a couple of years earlier, she’d never heard it before either.
So how common did I think Laryngospasms are?
She said her husband was asking because he wanted to know how come she managed to get the most obscure problem imaginable. (Well certainly one of the most frightening).
I have a feeling there are far more people out there so to speak, that are suffering from them and perhaps don’t know what is happening to them at the time, or what it’s called. Until I spoke to the special nurse that came out to see me I hadn’t a clue.
I’m going to ask a question here - If you think you have had a Laryngospasm please get in touch?
If you want to talk about anything to do with Laryngospasms, please just get in touch.
I did mention to the specialists nurse who came to see me ( I rang her) after she had been to me, that I had searched the web looking for a site for information and help from people who had experience a Laryngospasm but there was nothing. And at the time she agreed with me and suggested I start a help page.
If the interest is there, I might do just that.
At least now my friend has her answer - yes she does indeed have Laryngospasms and she has the diagnosis from the specialist nurse, who will in-turn pass it onto her doctor.
All we need now is for her to somehow be given an MRI scan of her brain.
Love and Blessings always.
