POSSIBLE STROKE

I MAY HAVE SUFFERED A STOKE 6 WEEKS AGO. BUT DIDN'T GO TO THE DOCTOR. HOW LONG AFTER A STROKE CAN THE DOCTOR TELL IF YOU HAD ONE. BECAUSE I AM STILL HAVING LASTING EFFECTS FROM WHAT HAPPENED. SYMPTOMS WERE DIZZINESS, LEFT SIDED NUMBNESS THAT THE FEELING CAME BACK ABOUT 30 MINUTES LATER, HEADACHES, TROUBLE THINKING AND TALKING.

Hi Shauna

Please go to your doctor.  If indeed you had a stroke, the damage will show on an MRI.
