I had a scary medical problem last night and I don't know what it was. I thought it was possibly a stroke because I don't know anything else that causes these symptoms. My symptoms were numbness in my hand and lip which lasted about 20 minutes. I was lying down at the time. After the numbness left I got up and I was not able to speak properly. everything I would try to say would come out as a different word or all jumbled up. I attempted to write but couldn't do that either. I was trying to write "there is something wrong with me" but instead I wrote "some try some my some me". It was very strange and scary. I haven't went to the doctor yet. I really can't afford to but if it is something that I should be really concerned about then I will go. Does anyone know what would cause those symptoms and should I worry? thanks for any advice.
