It could be TIA, Transient Iscemic Attack of Brain. Get a Ct scan done and keep your BP under control. Immediate consultation or report to an ER.

I went to my dr on Friday and found myself very much underweight. I ve lost 50+ lbs in the last year. I ve noticed that my arms were weak and then today I woke up and couldn t get out of bed. I m experiencing paralysis all over my body. It s gotten better as I ve been awake (15 min or so). Is it possible that this is a sign of having a stroke?
