Had paralysis on right side of face. Feel tired, pressure in head, swollen face and hand. Reason?

Hi. A month ago I had the right side of my face paralized for 5 mins and it came back. They said it could be bells palzy. After that i always feel tired, with a pressure in my head. Two days ago, i had a reaction, red dots all over my upper body and face Also my face got warm and swollen, followed by swollen right hand . My mouth, on the right side, drops a little sometimes and my left eyelid get swollen and with a feeling of dryness and disconfort in the eye. I cant get any medical exames done soon. Would you have any diagnostics? Thanks. Renata

Hi there ~

You had a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) when your face was paralyzed for 5 min and it came back. This does not augur well for your general health. It means that you need to make lifestyle modifications and have yourself completely checked out for any cardiac condition. Medications are plenty and helpful. You need to consult a cardiologist as soon as you can to help with preventing any future episodes. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day !
