Question: Hello there,
Last night I was feeling unusually sleepy and exhausted. I took a nap and when I woke up I noticed my right hand was feeling tingly. I didn’t think much of it because I was sleeping with my newborn and thought she maybe had slept on my right hand. After I while I got off the couch to go into my room and lay down. I then closed my eyes and it’s hard to explain what happened. I saw a bunch of shapes and like tracers, along with a disoriented feeling. As soon as I would open my eyes the vision changes stopped, but I continued to feel a little dizzy and scared. I noticed my right hand was slightly weaker than my left when I made a fist. I had a deep tissue massage last week and I feel he may have pressed too hard on my neck. My neck hurts a little in the right side.
Do you think I may have had a TIA? Should I take some aspirin? Immediately after the episode I felt fine, despite the slight weakness in my right hand. I’m currently breastfeeding. I live in a small town with a small hospital and am considering having my husband drive me to a hospital tomorrow in another city.
Sorry, I forgot to add that I have had a slight headache today and the neck pain remains but all other symptoms are gone. I also forgot to ask if I should go see my regular doctor instead of the ER. Thank you very much for your time.

Brief Answer:
May be cervical pain or gastritis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I have gone through your query,in my opinion you are having either cervical pain or gastritis.You can take antacid empty stomach and muscle relaxant like thiocholchicoside 4mg along with aceclofenac twice daily.Do hot fomentation and avoid pillow,you will get relief.If you does not get relief than you may consult your regular doctor.
Numbness and tingling sensation and weakness are also due to cervical pain,aspirin will not help you.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

I have a dear friend whom woke up one morning with a blackened/ red eye lid. There was a slight swelling but no tingle sensation/ numbness. The discoloration goes over her upper eye lid to almost her nose . She did not receive any trauma to the eye. There is no vision problems, and no other apparent symptoms? I am worried that this could be a secondary condition? I have researched this , and I have come up with no ideas. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!

Doctor, I am an 18 year old male, I recently came back from a week in Cuba, and about halfway during my stay I started getting minor mouth sores (canker) and a slight tingling/irritation of the skin on the outside of my cheek of the responding side of the sores, very small bumps aswell leading from my lip/mustache line to my chin, slight redness, very small bumps (not visible, you have to feel) and slight dryness of skin, my oral hygiene is very good. I live in Vancouver and it is very cold. my doctor has prescribed me Cortate ointment for the skin on my cheek, but it does not seen to be helping.
