: My dad has had problems for about 2 months now with walking. Before he was perfectly fine, but now he often falls and has resorted to using a cane. This came very suddenly (like overnight). He said that it feels as though someone is stabbing his right leg with little needles, and he has no balance. He has diabetes, so at first they thought it was something to do with that. Now they say that it is his back, but admit that they are not sure. Around the same time as his leg went out he developed a lazy eye on the right side and his bottom lip hangs a little on that side. I think he may have had a stroke, but don't want to scare him by saying anything until I know if these are stroke symtoms. Are they??? Thanks.
Kathy, It sure sounds like your Dad has some sort of neurological problem with his right side. The drooping of the lip as well as the tingling in the leg could be as a result of a stroke. He should definitely be evaluated by a neurologist since the other Doctors don't seem to be getting it right. Good luck. I'll keep my fingers crossed for good news! Janine
