periodic numbness in face following TIA
avatar
couross posted:
I had a TIA in December 2009 due to hypertension and, I thought, was fully recovered with no damage. However, since then, I occasionally experience "slight" numbness in my face, occasionally both sides, but not severe enough to think I am having another stroke. The numbness is infrequent and usually lasts a day, but I am in my third day which is somewhat worrisome.

My blood pressure is somewhat elevated, 134 / 91, whereas I have been more in the range of 105 / 70 with medication since the TIA.

Is this occasional numbness normal for someone that has had a stroke or TIA?

I still have numbness in my face 3 years after my stroke. Keep track of when and how much and tell your neurologist.
