Effects of a stroke

Apparently i had a stroke several months ago, this was confirmed with a CT scan and a couple of MRI's. Just last week my whole right side went numb, i took an aspiring and had someone take me to the emergency room where they did another CT scan and took blood. I have not got the results of these tests back yet. My biggest concern right now is the numbness i have in the back of my head which seems to radiate around the top of my head. it feels like i am wearing a tight fitting hat and is driving me nuts. It is hard to sleep and i have a strong heartbeat in my right ear. I did have an Ultra sound done on the artiries in my neck, have not got these results back yet either. Has any else had the tight hat feeling? thanks

Unusual feelings can be very hard to diagnose. Have you received the resuktys of any of your tests yet? I do not think it would responsible to give you a list of things that may or may not be wrong. You have gone to the doctor and had the appropriate tests performed. Let us know what they how.

Good Luck
After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.
