I have had a heart attack in 2010 immediate attention since I was in EER with husband. effect was dragging of foot at times. I had a stroke March 2013 didn't realize it as stroke be cause of pinched nerve in back started with left knee giving out. didn't get checked out for a week as husband was getting ready to pass away and I couldn't leave him. Went to hospital after and was told I had a stroke on right side of brain. When I left Hospital I could lift left arm and leg had weakness on left side. I was also to bend left foot and toes and make decent fist with left hand now two months later can not bend foot , toes or make fist on left side. and having chest pains weather moving or siting. Is this common for things to go backwards after stroke?

Yes, stroke symptoms can get worse with time. Your best bet is to get physical therapy to help strengthen and help the pain. Good luck.
