I am a healthy 26 year old female with no past medical history myself or family. About 6 weeks ago I started suffering from dizziness, loss of balance, headaches, left sided numbness to the point of not being able to lift my arm, stuttering, and forgetfullness. My normal BP is 120/60 and pulse rate 70. On this particular day BP was 150/102 pulse rate around 150-170. They rushed me to the hospital where they did a CT that came back normal. Placed me in observation for 2 days then did EEG. That came back normal also. They sent me home and I went to the doctor 2 days later that he then told me I have hypthyroidism. I seriously doubt that because I am 5'2 ' and weigh 125 lbs about a year after having a child. I seriously think I had a TIA/Stroke and was misdiagnosed. Does anyone know what kind of doctor I need to go to and how long after a stroke and they still tell if you had one? Please help me because I still have effects from this being trouble speaking and forgetfullness.
