Migraine, numb legs and mouth, normal BP. Stroke?

Back in February I went to my doctors about pain in the back of my head that i was having. I am prone to headaches, but always at my temple area. The pain just went away on its own. Then on April 11,2013 went to my doctors due to numbness in my feet, lower legs. She sent for blood work the next day. Things came back normal. Numbness is also in my mouth and I feel very off when I walk. I am going to see a nuerologist this week. I am a 37 year old female and overweight. My blood pressure is always good and i'm not on any medication. My question is, do you think I could of had a mini stroke? Today is a week since this has started. Still feel the same, lite numbness in feet, hands, some in mouth and still a little off balance.

Thank you for posting your query.

Numbness of one side of body or imbalance could occur in mini strokes.

However, numbness of feet and hands is more often due to peripheral neuropathy (disease of the nerves in feet and hands). The usual underlying causes are high sugars, low vitamin b12, etc.

In any case, after the consultation with the neurologist, the diagnosis would be much clearer.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
