A hairdresser from Kent is asking doctors, and the public, to be more aware after her stroke was mistakenly diagnosed.
Three years ago, Christine Morgan from Tonbridge was working when she felt what she described as a '"whooshing noise"' and a headache.
Her on-call doctor, however, dismissed her symptoms as tonsillitis.
Less than a week later, Christine was having emergency brain surgery after discovering she had in fact suffered a bleed on the brain, and is now paralysed on her left side.
Her life with husband Dave is now very different, with him as her full-time carer.
The on-call doctor has admitted there was a breach of duty and that Christine should have been sent to hospital immediately.
She says she will never know how different her life may be now if she hadn't been misdiagnosed, but wants everyone to be more aware of rarer symptoms.
