Re: Woke up with top of head completely numb/weakness in left hand

Could you have had a mild stroke? I am a survivor of 4 strokes, and I recommend you go in (given the arm weakness, even if temporary), just to make sure. I wish you well.

Stroke often occurs in the early morning hours, and these days are known as "brain attacks". They can be treated most effectively, right away. Just a thought, and best wishes to you.
