I am just returning home today after being admitted to Hospital last Tuesday. I was at work and noticed i was tripping over my words and sometimes unable to get out words. I was advised by my ENT to see a Neurologist right away, about an hour later on my way to see a neurologist my legs caved, I could not walk or stand up. AT that time my pressure turned out to be 150/110. I was transferred to another Hospital where I waited a while before being dealt with, during this wait I lost movement in my right arm as well. My right arm came back Saturday, and since Monday my legs have started working all be it slower. Still after several bloodtests and a Ct scan the doctors know nothing. What cld cause this? i was on some medication for suspected TMD and I think some of them might have contradicted each other......please help me to look in the right direction

  • i was on some medication for suspected TMD and I think some of them might have contradicted each other......please help me to look in the right direction Yes this is very likely, and drug interactions are the very last thing doctors look at! Please list your drugs here, or you can go directly to www.drugs.com and click on the drug interactions checker. Type in ALL meds you are currently taking and it will check for interactions. Please do this to rule this out. Doctors just don't look for this!DOM
