Hi XXXXXX,

Thank you for posting your query.

Numbness in left side of body can be due to a problem in the right side of brain.

Since how long do you have this symptom? Do you also have other symptoms such as weakness, imbalance, pain, etc?

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,

I have been feeling this problem since last night, I had Cabbage worm in my brain during 2002-2003 and after one year of medication doctor asked me to stop the medicines. Since then I was all well but yesterday I have started feeling numbness.

Thank you for getting back.
If symptoms persist, it may be useful to repeat the scan of brain to find out the reason. It may be related to the old worm.

So Sir, what test would you recommend

If symptoms do not disappear in 2-3 days time, a CT scan or MRI scan of brain may be done.
