Stroke - really worried!!!!!
I donno if this this is the right forum 4 this question but I need some advice. I'm a 25 yr old woman, 6,5 - 7m<not sure> and I weigh about 50KG. I have no health problem accept that sometimes I get this weird feeling in my left arm. It's almost numb but not quite and it feels very heavy. Sometimes, I feel that my left leg is also funny but less so and I get a slight headache. This has happened 4 the last 2 days. About 2 years ago this happened 2 me & I went 2 c a Dr coz I was worried about strokes as I knew someone who'd had 2 strokes by age 21. He did all sorts of tests & scans and everything was normal and he sent me home with multivitamins. It didn't stop immediately but died down. Now it's back. I donno wot 2 do about this. Is there a specialist type of doctor that I can go 2 who can look 4 other things that may be causing this?

This is a long story but I would appreciate ANY help:-\

Please direct this to CyberDoc. A neurologist would be the person to consult.
