for the last month or so I've had numb sensations in my right hand, right arm and right leg. I had 2 fleeting episodes where I felt a weakness in my right leg where it felt as though it might buckle. But lasted for only a few seconds and then I had the feeling back again. The last one happened today. I'm concerned... Tomorrow I'm going to see my doctor.

  • He said that I had had a mini-stroke. Also my toes on the right side have the same sensation. Also at times I have difficulty thinking clearly. That was the extent of the effect so I was lucky. He told me to watch my lifestyle like avoiding cholesterol and that I should get more exercise. I found a good site http://www.kroger.com/hn/Concern/Stroke.htm Does your problem only affect your hand? I am not a doctor ... Good luck
