Left sided numbness
I spent three months with my entire left side being slightly numb.  Every week or so, I would have an episode that would start with my left side going completely numb, a major headache would come on my left side, ringing in my ear, severe left eye strain, extreme confusion and my muscles would twitch all over.  I have had every test done, including two MRI's/MRA/CT/CTA and all with nothing remarkable.  They noted that my basilar artery was underdeveloped but said that this was nothing to worry about and was very common.  For some reason my dr put me on plavix and after about a week or so, the slight numbness I was having completely went away.  After being told by my neurologist that there was no reason I should be on the plavix, I decided to stop taking it one morning and by 4 pm that afternoon I had gone slightly numb again on my left side.  I have reumatoid arthritis and am being treated with 15 mg of Methotrexate once a week and 7mg of prednisone/day.  (I just began taking this 2 months ago).  I am really strugleing with not knowing what could be causing the left sided numbness and why the plavix is working despite not having a reason to be on it.  any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!!!
