: : I had a mini-stroke last month. My right side was completely paralized for 40 min then feeling began to return. The only remaining damage I notice is a numbness on the end of my tongue, very slight weakness on right side with balance problems, occasional reoccuring burning sensation in the right upper scalp area, and severe depression and problems with sleep. Does this sound normal?
: When I had my stroke last year, my left side was paralyzed for four hours. I don't experience the things you do, except I do get a burning/tingling feling in my brain and I do have problems sleeping (I always wake up early in the morning). As for the other problems you are experiencing, they're probably because your stroke occured on the left side of your brain (it did, didn't it?; I am assuming this because you said that your right side was paralyzed, and from what I learned in Biology last year, or 2 years ago, the left side of your brain controls the right side of your body).
I have seizures and yesturday I had one and then I could not talk and I just stared at my husband, when I finally came around , my left side was numb. I could not walk on my left leg or move my left arm, it lasted about 30minutes. my seizures are always on the left side of my face, my eye closes and my mouth twitches. I go to shanes hospital in gainsville for eegtv montoring and mri next month, but I am scared of what happened yesturday.
