My 22 year old nephew is a college student. He and his culinary arts professor were shopping for the days menu this afternoon when he started to experience tingling and numbness in his right fingers and hand, then traveled up his arm into the right side of his face. After that he was having a hard time getting his words out, kind of slurring them or having a hard time to talk. A few minutes later it went away. After that he started to get a headache and it has continued into the evening where he has gone to bed and is sleeping now. The numbness and tingling, troubled speech have disappeared but his headache has not. Could this be the signs of a mini stroke? Please help!
No, my nephew did not go to the hospital which I freaked out about because I just got off the phone with my mother about the whole situation. People failed to inform me til' now. Had I known, I would have insisted he went to the ER.
