Re: I need some help...face, hands, arms numb...after stroke
I am afraid of having another stroke also. My first stroke was in 5/02. It was in the Brocca area, left me unable to speak, could not read or write, short term memory was affected and a few other things. It took me over 3 years till I was able to speak fluently again. My reading and writing is coming, but i still have prblems with that. My 2nd stroke was in 7/07. It was in the same spot as my first, mainly cauing me problems with pain on my right side. Then in Jan I started with the numbness, dizziness, loss of concentration and problems focusing on things. It has been ongoing since then. The dr bills have equaled $80,000 for the last few months, and they still do not know what is going on. But, I am tired of going to Dr's, i had evey test that they can think of, so I am just relying on prayer and faith at this time. Hopefully you can get better answers that i have. I am confident in my Drs, but they do not know everthing, but they have done enough test on me and they could not find a cause, so I just have to rely on what they told me, they don't think i have TIA's. I hope you are able to find an answer. good luck.
