    Fatigue after a mini stroke
    AngelnSpirit posted:
    My fiance, Michael, 47, had a mini stroke last August which caused Neuropathy on his left side. His leg is pretty much cured, but he still has limitations and pain of his left arm. Lately, he's complained of poor sleep (even though his pain meds have aided in his sleep quality) and also complains of sudden fatigue to the point where he feels weak and has to rest or sleep. I'm worried that these might be signs of another oncoming stroke. I told him to go see the Dr. but I want to research anyway.
