My husband, 53, suffered a stroke last week due to a torn carotid artery. Thankfully, he was administered TPA in 18 minutes and he
Recovered all his speech, movement etc.Briefly, he was completely paralyzed on his left side. Now, the only remnant that appears leftover from his stroke is a strange sensation on his left side where he perceives hot and cold differently from that side. He describes it as more intense- for instance if he holds an ice cube in his left hand it feels colder than in his right. Same with hot- hot coffee feels noticeably hotter in his left hand. Just curious if anyone else has had a similar experience. We feel so fortunate to be this lucky.
