: I can't tell you if what you have been experiencing is a stroke. You should probably ask your doctor and get a CT Scan and/or MRI. My sister said that when I had my stroke I was waving my hand towards my face because I couldn't feel it. I guess my face got numb, too. By the way, I was only 22 when I had my stroke.

I certainly wouldn't want to diagnose your health but.... Your symptoms are definitely similar to the ones involved in my stroke. Probably it was a wake-up call to take care of yourself. Good eating, fresh vegetables and so forth as well as plenty of rest and stress reduction where possible would be helpful.
Good luck to you and take care. Joanne
