My mother-in-laws partner just called me to say hes worried about her. Shes been real tired for a few days and has tingly feelings in her arms. He thinks this means she is having a stroke! I have never heard of this. He is not with her right now hes at work but he trying to get her to call the doc. does this sound right?

My daughter had a frontal lobe stroke 25 years ago and last year had two strokes, one in the frontal lobe and one in the cerebellum. I don t know what type of stroke the cerebellum was, others were ischemic. This past Sunday, she fell off the couch, unable to move her left side, face drooping. Husband called 911 for ambulance. Doctor told her they don t think it was a stroke, probably a pseudo stroke which can happen a year after original stroke. How could we tell the difference?

I think I may just be a hypochondriac but, three days ago I felt like the left side of my body was weaker than the right. I had taken a green mega T diet pill earlier that day and started freaking out something was seriously wrong. I looked up online that that is a symptom of a stroke. I havent taken a pill since and I think it might be in my head but I feel like my left side is still weaker. Could that be a stroke symptom?
