I am told that I have had a stroke recently, but I did not have all the symptoms of a stroke, just numbness down one side of my face, heaviness and numbness in my arm, and tingling in my fingers. Did I really have a stroke??? I am still undergoing tests as nothing else abnormal has shown up so far. I now have numbness in that same arm every now and then. I would like to now if that is normal and can anyone throw any light on this please? I feel confused?!?!
