I have had a constant and weird headache for the past couple days. it feels like pressure on the left side of my head, and also heaviness on the top half of my face. It also feels like my ear is clogged. Also iv e been getting a tingling sensation in my left hand and my left leg near my foot. All the symptoms come and go. I ve taken some advil and it will get beeter for a little while, but it keeps coming back. I just found out not too long ago that i have an irregular heartbeat, and the feeling in my head started happening after my heart skipped a beat the other night after physical activity. I m not really sure whats going on.

My 64 years old Mum experienced pins and needles in both hands and feet a couple of days ago, as it got worse she went to the hospital. They have done an MRI scan and all is clear. She is now waiting for the results back from the scan they did on her neck/throat. They have suggested it might have been a mini stroke. Does this sound right to you? And also, should she be taking it easy whilst she waits to hear? She says she feels fine and isn t slowing down at all but I m worried she should be resting more. Many Thanks
