    Question Mini Stroke, Numb ear, Neurotinin ?

    Apparently I have had another stroke. A mini stroke that I would have never noticed.

    They have ordered a detailed MRI to determine the extent of the damage

    They are sending me to a neurologist to determine the best treatment.

    While we wait for the MRI and the neurologist, they put me on two new medications.
    1) Blood Thinner - To prevent future mini strokes.
    2) Neurotronin - To help remove the numbness in my right ear.

    The current obvious damage of the 2nd mini stroke is the numbness in the right ear. There may be other damage, but we will have to wait for the MRI to determine the extent of the damage and what additional medication may be necessary.

    Not good, but could be much worse.

    What side effects can I expect from the Neurotin. Dr. said it might make me sleepy. Any oother advice?
