667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.

Avatar n tn When blood flow to the brain is suddenly stopped, this is a stroke.

Avatar f tn Numbness in your right toes and your right hand are Diabetes symptoms for full blown T2 called neuropathic complications. If you are not sure if you are already a T2 then, the most inexpensive and quickest way to find out if you are an T2, go buy a Diabetes self test kit called A1C NOW, made by Bayer, at Wal-mart or at Walsgreen for $29.99. Within 10 minutes after the test, you'll see the results. Or set up an appointment to see a neurologist.
Avatar n tn 1) I have read a lot of the stats regarding the increased risk of stroke with afib. Does this only apply to the people with symptoms? In other words, if my meds are eliminating the symptoms, are my risks of a stroke eliminated? 2) Are there any detrimental effects of taking a beta blocker long term (since I am only 30)? 3) I am used to exercising at a pretty high intensity (HR up to 170 when pushing, resintg HR around 65).
Avatar f tn Besides this blood thinners, controlling high risk factors like diabetes and hypertension and physical therapy are needed for recovery from stroke. So, take care and work towards improving from your stroke symptoms. Regards.
