I have had numbness in my left arm for the past few days. Today on the beach the left side of my face became effected, go light headed / weakness and now my tongue feels funny with dad taste...but not just the left side. I took a Xanax and am starting to calm down but still feel funny. What should I do...I am isolated on an island in Maine with just a 4 year old. Aubusson_home @ WWW.WWWW.WW

Neurologist 's  Response
there is not enough information for me to tell whether or not it is a stroke which I'm guessing is your major concern. the only way to know is to see someone and get an MRI. the good news is that numbness is a relatively minor symptom. a pinched nerve in your neck is also a possibility and the more likely but cannot be diagnosed in this manner
