General help

I had stroke symptoms on 02/28/2013 where my whole left side went numb.  I had several tests that came back negative.  My speech, writing, and driving has been impaired.  What do I do?  Thanks

Have you seen a neurologist about this or just your pcp? If you just saw a pcp you may want to get a second opinion.

I would definitely get a second opinion. Have you gone back and talked about these newer symptoms with the original doctor?

I was told that the only way to detect a stroke with tests is while the stroke is still happening. You need a neurologist to determine if the damage is permanent and help you recover.
