What causes weakness in left arm, numbness in left leg and double vision?
Symptoms are suggestive of TIA.
Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your symptoms and based on that, we should exclude a diagnosis of TIA (transient ischemic attack).
In TIA, the blood supply to a part of brain gets reduced for a short while and causes various neurological symptoms. The symptoms recover in less than 24 hours, mostly within a few hours.
It is important to diagnose, as some people may get a major stroke if not treated.
Investigations would require MRI brain with angiogram.
Aspirin tablets should be started.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
