Something odd happened to me the other day

At the risk of sounding insane, I shall tell you of my experience: I was at home alone sweeping the kitchen floor at about 2pm last Thursday, I was feeling fine and had consumed no alcohol or medical tablets. One minute I have a dust pan and brush in my hand cleaning my floor, then my partner is waking me up asking me why I'm lying fully clothed in bed at 4.30pm...over two hours later!!! I have no memory of feeling tired or going to bed and we found the dust pan and brush lying on the kitchen floor where I had been cleaning. This has never happened before and I'm in good health. Rather worrying really. Any ideas :confused:

At the risk of sounding patronizing, I would suggest that you get advice from the medical profession rather than an internet aviation forum. It's probably nothing to worry about but worth getting checked out I would say.

I'll echo that - you beat me to it.

I agree. Any episode of 'missing time', or unconsciousness, without apparent cause should be referred to a doctor without delay. It may very well turn out to be nothing, but why take the risk?

I agree with everyone else here. Get yourself chaecked out ASAP. Your health is too valuable to take chances with.

Get to your Dr like YESTERDAY, I had a slight pain 22 yrs ago, and went to the Docs, turned out to be Cancer of the Pancreas, although I doubt if this is anywhere near what you may have, I am just trying to tell you to see your doc ASAP. as you cannot account for the lost time, I could hazard a guess, but I am no Dr. Lincoln. 7

For a man to be sweeping the kitchen,maybe it was some sort of `out of body experience` or a dream ( your partners /wifes)?...no seriously!! seek advice from your G.P. A.S.A.P !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When that happens to me I usually put a potato in an old sock and bury it ....

27vet...you are going to have to explain that one. Is it like tying a not in a handkerchief in order to remember something. O.P. Been to the Doc? What did he say? I've had totally reversed memory, short term...I think we all do. I put a hot water bottle on the front step and took the empty milk bottles upstairs once.

It comes from an old joke... The elderley cleaning woman answers the doctor's phone while he is out of the office: "The doctor's not in right now luv, but what I usually do is put a potato in an old sock..." Layman's advice. :D DrP : I hope it's nothing serious.

Hi Dr Pepper. I see you posted this on the 25th Jan. which has given you plenty of time to see your Dr. A lot of members have shown concern regarding what happened to you, or did it, and it's just a wind up?. Lincoln. 7 ;)
