Re: could it be stroke

Probably not but if you have other symptoms along with this (weakness in limbs, numbness, dizziness, headache, slurred speech, vision probs on that side etc) I would go to the ER...now.

Colette,
I agree with Chloe - it doesn't sound like a stroke. I remember an employee I used to work that had something similar - I don't remember what the system is called, but his right side of his face went to sleep (for best thing I can say) it fixed itself out in awhile. Now I am not a dr. so obviously I don't know, but it sounds very close to what you just told. If you just had a stroke, you would not be able to type what you just typed.
Blessings to you. If we can help (i don't know how) please ask more.

I doubt it but always be safe then sorry. Symptoms are usually tingling or vision loss or speech.

Hi Colette,
I am sorry so much that you have lyme disease. From the little that I know, is Lymes from a tick??? Is that right??? I am just talking. Let me know how your are doing and that everything is ok. I really do care and if you want to talk about what happened, I will listen.
Thanks
Tim
