I was diagnosed with APS in 2005. Prior to that they said I had 'probable' MS this was back in 1994-5 after I had an MS like episode that left me walking with a stick for months and not being able to walk and talk properly. I don't recall going for any scans. The Drs just made the housing install extra handrails on they stairs and the bars in the bathroom etc so I wouldn't get trapped in the bath again. (Looking back I believe this was my first stroke)
Since then I have had the remaining part of my thyroid removed. At the same time was diagnosed with APS. Had a few hospital stays of one or two days where migraine attacks with numbness have been so bad I couldn't move. I then had a confirmed cva which I was not aware of. But I was talking nonsense and got very confused at work. They admitted me for two days at that time. Heart surgery followed to repair a PFO and remove an atrial septal aneurysm that were apparently contributing to my TIAs.
Lately I have been having lots of numbness on my lest side mainly. Creeping numbness in my face is apparent even to my husband. He freaked out as he said my face was drooping on one side. I felt fine in myself apart from a numb face and arm.
I am currently going through physical therapy for my neck as I have three bulging disks and two of them are torn. I don't know if this sudden onset of numbness is a concern or if it's the disks in my neck
I did have a weird feeling of kind of being under water. It's very hard to describe. But that's how it felt. It was very disturbing and lasted maybe a half hour.
Has anyone else experienced this feeling and in your opinion do you think it's my neck. It maybe something else. Sick of going Drs and it seems it's something to me but nothing. Maybe I am going nuts after all.
