Thanks Colin, your reply is very helpful! My friends say I am in denial of a stroke because I keep questioning it! It is a scary experience! I am taking the medication and having a 72 hour ECG and a further head scan soon. Whether this will show anything I’m not sure? I still worry about the numbness in my left arm that I still get occasionally and wonder if this is normal?
