Face feels numb and weird at night, burning sensation on torso and leg. Stroke of tia?

Hi! Last night I had a scary event. A feeling of numbess/weirdness started on the ride side of my face, as it traveled down, I felt like I couldnt swallow on the right side of my throat , as it travelled down it turned to a burning sensation all the way down my torso, upper leg, then lower leg, theni t was gone. The episode lasted 30 seconds, but, as I am prone to anxiety and worse case scenario thinking, , I completely panicked that it was something ominous like a stroke of tia.

We understand your concerns

I went through your problem description. I suggest you not to worry too much. Our body is a very complex electronic machine. Numerous electronic and electric signals are passing through a given organ at a given time. Such traffic does have its limitations.

Our body also have so many sensory signals which often gets confused because of its perception failure. Means confused signals for the brain and response also should be confused. Understand what I mean? That's it. If you have anxiety problem, do consult a psychologist for detailed advice. I shall help you through healthcaremagic if you desire so.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
