hoping 2get better

Hello everyone. I'm new here and a 56 year old female. On Jan 09,2013 I had a left brain stroke resulting in right side weakness, numbness and sever sensory deprivation on right side face and right hand, making me feel extreme coldness in face /hand. I have recovered a lot of strenght, but PT says nothing mostly can be done about the cold feelings. Has anyone else had or known anyone with this tyoe of sensory stroke??

Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Pain, numbness or odd sensations may indeed be observed after a stroke. These could be due to neurological deficit from the stroke. For proper evaluation of this nerve issues, it is best that you discuss this with your attending physician or neurologist. Direct clinical and neurological examination are important. Take care and hope all is well. Do keep us posted and best regards.

It sounds like from what the expert said above, that there may be treatments.  Neurologists are not all alike or even competent.  If you still get told that there is no remedy, I would try to get a second opinion.   My first neurologist after my stroke was incompetent.  I'm so glad that I sought help from another neurologist.
