Posted on Mon, 6 Jul 2015
Question: Thank you. Lately my right arm and leg feel as if they weigh 20 pounds each while my left arm and leg feel normal. They are also slower to move. It happens a lot when I wake up. It does not last all day.

Sounds like a stroke possibility

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.
The symptoms of the query are quite suggestive of a possible stroke. I think I would suggest that you get tested with an MRI brain with CV doppler immediately.
The medication may be suggested as per reports.
Best of luck.
