Hi there,,today I had what felt like a anxiety attack. I have had many of those but today was differ t. My left side of my head felt numb.started with my lips then nose eye forehead and left side of head. I am starting to feel a little bit better now about 4 hours later. Just wondering if it s serious and should follow up with docs tomorrow thanks.
Dear Jentondes, Thanks for the question. Since you have already experienced anxiety attacks previously and you have mentioned that this attack was differrent, from the signs and symptoms that you have mentioned, I would think it could be a Transient Ischemic Attack, which is a form of a very mild stroke. Since this can be a warning sign for a much bigger event you should consult a neurologist and might have to undergo C.T./M.R.I scans to accurately diagnose the cause. However sometimes a facial palsy might also start this way which again is a neurologist's domain of expertise.
