It was 3:30 in the morning and I was in bed when I noticed my left side had a "pins and needles" feeling and felt heavy. Having a brother who is disabled due to a stroke I had thoughts of my own stroke. I called my brother in law who is a fireman and he took me the hospital for treatment. After the Ct scan I was given aspirin and bp meds. I wound up spending a day in the hospital and also had an MRI and then I was discharged the following day. Now after almost three weeks my left side is getting better but I still have that heavy feeling and numbness. It makes it hard to have smooth movements with my hand and arm ..but my leg seems better.
I also have a hard time a the grocery store, the lights bother me to the point where I get anxious. Not sure what thats all about. My speach is ok even though I have some numbness in my face .
Can anyone offer up advise ?

The best thing you can do is be examined by a neurologist.
