21 year old woman. 20 second muffled dull weak feeling in right hand. Starts very suddenly, lasts 15 or 20 seconds and fades back to normal strength in 5 or 10 seconds. 10 episodes since it started 3 weeks ago. MRI, CT angiogram all normal. No pain or tingling.
Any ideas?

  • i also get short periods of weakness in my hand particulary my right hand and it usually starts when im holding something in my hand like a cup for example. it usually lasts about 10 seconds. there is also no pain or tingling. i do have anxiety but i dont think that would be related somehow, but then again im no expert so i dont know. its more of a minor problem for me.
