If you still have numbness then it was not a TIA. By definition effects from a TIA resolve themselves in 24 hours. You need to see a neurologist and get some preventative care to prevent a full-blown stroke. The neurologist should also be able to direct therapists to help with what ever defivcits the stroke left you.
