Hello,my name is Dan and i'm 20 years old. Yesterday evening i started to get agitated and angry for no reason whatsoever,then i started to get really warm before going pale and quite cold.While this was happening my whole left side from my neck down started to go numb and i couldn't grip or walk very well. My whole left side was really cold while my right was normal,this persisted throughout the night.this morning my left side was still quite a bit weaker than it was prior to this and still feels numb.

Should i go to see a doctor or wait it out to see if the feeling and strength eventually comes back?

Thanks
Dan

  • Yes - hot foot it to your doctor or ER today!I am not a doctor, but it sounds like you could be suffering from a mild stroke.It is possible for even a young person to suffer a mini-stroke. A small stroke can be a timely warning of bigger ones to come. Strokes can be successfully treated - if they are dealt with promptly AND they are not too catastrophic.
