Recent Stroke

I am 44yr old male and just had a stroke 3 weeks ago. I just threw up and went to sleep that night had no pain or symptoms. Next morning I noticed my balance is way off and my speech is slurred (both 3 weeks later) Neurologist does want me to do future tests (MRA,MRI,cartoid dissection and ENG) I statred PT and speech therapy last week. I am in no pain. right arm is useless,dead. Im on medication for Diabeties and high cholorestrol..both just started 2 weeks ago....anyone have a similar situation?

Re: Recent Stroke

Hi EJ,
My experience was not that simular in as far as the events of the day but there are some sumularities.
I had no paid but balance problems and right side leg and arm weakness.
I did also have the standard tests you described and nothing really showed up other than the dead spot in my brain where the stroke happened.
Not sure if you just started taking Diabeties meds or you just get diagnosed with diabeties but shortly after my stroke I started having thyroid problems as well as pressure in my inner ear.
I never did PT becuase most of my physical symptoms went away quickly but I wish I had. (I'm 1 year and 1 day post stroke)
I wish you the best in your recovery.
