I'm 29 years old and 3 days ago I had all the symptoms of a stroke. I went through all kinds of tests, (MRI,CT scans and blood work) and no diagnosis. I still have weakness in my arm and leg which I have to start PT for. I'm very frustrated and becoming depressed not knowing what is going on. Please Help!

  • The doctor had me on a blood thinner while I was in the hospital but nothing now. I didn't get medical attention until 13 hours later. It started as a headache and my arm went numb and turned blue. I felt awful so I just went to bed and the next morning my arm was weak so I went to my doctor. Do minor strokes show up on a MRI? I'm still waiting for some blood work to come back. I've talked to some people that have had something similar happen and never got a diagnosis for it either.
