Before anyone starts saying it was a stroke, or a mini-stroke I'll stop you right there.
Back in December, I had to go hospital complaining of facial numbness on the left side of my face, numbness in the left arm and some chest pain. So I had several tests as part of something to find out if I was having a mini-stroke, having before hand had an assessment from paramedics on the ambulance ride to the hospital to determine if I might be having a heart attack. No heart attack. The tests from the hospital came back negative, I had the blood test which was fine, the ECG which was fine etc, I had an ultra-sound scan on my throat (weirdly interesting experience), and a CAT scan. The Neurologist at the hospital prescribed me one month's anti-platelet medicine (just in case) whilst waiting for the results of those tests, just to be on the safe side. I got a letter saying basically there was nothing major to be concerned about - which was in early February.
Since then I've still had the odd numbness going on. So I went to see the doc at my local medical center.
My doctor tells me he reckons it's anxiety related. What I don't get is I don't feel anxious. I'm not panic stricken, although I have strangely developed a fear of open spaces, something which I'd never experienced before - and there aren't many wide open spaces where I live...except for the car park, which unless I mentally ignore the open space, sometimes makes me feel unsure of myself and a little wobbly at the knees.
I'm not having much luck with the doc, who seems to think all's well.
I eat pretty regularly, but I don't eat three square a day (can't afford to), and I very rarely drink (which doesn't have any negative impact on me).
I really have no clue whatsoever as to what I might be doing wrong that causes this.
Nor do I know exactly what I can do to make it stop.
