could have been a migraine, maybe? I've had some whoppers...even fainted on several occasions. Numbness in extremeties suggest circulation problems, maybe a TIA (commonly known as mini-stroke), and they can tell that by doing an MRI. If you have a stroke, they can see a spot in your brain where the stroke occurred.
