Unfortunately, by the time I arrive by ambulance, (about 3 hrs. later), it was too late to administer the 'stroke
buster' shot that was planned. After
about 4 hours, slowly, I began to regain feeling in my left fingers and forearm. I felt a burning/pins & needles sensation and within that time frame, my speech started coming back, though slurry and jumbled. I ended up being sent back to my original hospital when in the ambulance, the whole episode started again.
