minor stroke

August 31, 2006 8:30am CST
6 days ago i had a minor stroke, with numbness on my right side. My face felt as though my skin was crawling at the begining. CT scan showed no tumour, blockage or bleed. Waiting for an MRI scan appointment. Last night i had the same symptoms again - but this time on my left hand side. Can anyone tell me if this is normal ? Many thanks

Is it possible that you have a major nerve in your back being pinched? I was told i had a minor stroke one and it turned about to be the nerve was compromised and causing the symptoms..I was lucky the doctor sent me a neurologist who corrected what the hospital didn't detect. Either way..keep persistent until you get it resolved!

From your spelling of tumor (tumour), might I assume that you are in the UK? If so, here is an additional site with extremely helpful information: www.stroke.org/UK Not in UK? Then just leave off the /UK My heart and prayers go out to and for you. Stroke can be a very life-changing encounter. Sounds like you're doing exactly the right thing, though, by catching it before it catches you. God bless!
