Hi Folks only just found this site today and I would like to ask a question-a rather long one!!
In May last year I was taken in to hospital with left sided weakness with pins and needles and numbness which was query a stroke I was scanned and told all was well and sent home. The symptons remained and I then lost my speech was scanned again and sent home. My speech returned over the following 2 weeks and then went again 2 weeks later again to come back over the following 10 days. I have to this day got a stutter at times. My left side is still much weaker than my right and pins and needles and numbess controlled by Pregablin 3 times a day. On my visit to the neurologist I was told I had Hemiplegic migraines even though did not have the headache. I was discharged. Has anyone else been given this diagnosis? Do you think it is reasonable to ask for a second opinion as the symptons have gone on so long. I have constant pain and fatigue which is so bad I have had to retire on ill health grounds. I would appreciate any comments thanks so much in advance
