Odd attacks: neuropathy or stroke?

June 16, 2006 at 9:01 pm

6 months ago right after my mild stroke, I had a strange attack (or whatever) and could hardly move at all. I was zipped off to the hospital and was better (for me) after 6 hours or so.

Now, I am having another one of those. I feel that my muscles are numb and am afraid I can’t stand or walk; I feel STRANGE. Almost like limbs going to sleep, almost. Fingers feel stiff and numb, like they used to when they were very cold. But they are not. I was worried today so much that I got out my walker. I felt the same as that previous mentioned above. I can type, cannot write, have trouble talking. And extreme fatigue.

Does that seem familiar to anyone? Or am I having a stroke again. I felt this way too, then. My doctor has quit his practice and gone away. So I have a new one that I talked with about 10 minutes. He doesn’t know me. I don’t want to go to the hospital for fear they will send me home in a cab, like they did the first time.
