back trouble or neurological?
A month ago it was thought I had a stoke. Left arm was weak and uncoordinated, I tried to talk and left side of face puched up and I slurred. this happened 3 more times and I went to ER. I was admitted, MRI, CT scan, 35 hour EEG, ultrasound on legs for clots, bubble test on heart. Found a small pfo, too small to worry about. they sent me home.
Weeks later still having trouble., everytime I stand up from a chair, roll over in bed or put too much weight on my left leg I get weak and my hand turns into a claw and my face contorts. These attack last about a minute or two, but it's getting to the point where I cannot do anything, even reading to turn off the light while laying in bed sets me off.
Went to back doc, I have 2 slipped discs, one high and one low and an xray shows severe artheritis and had an MRI, get results monday. They said it cannot be back realted because my facial spasms, it must be neurological but my neuiro is stumped.
Please has anyone here heard of this or exerpeience something similar or even idea WHAT it could be????
