My daughter has been suffering for a couple of months with a numb, but painful, drooping right side of her face, also, right leg is very heavy. Sometimes she can't feel it and has to drag it. Her right arm is also heavy, and sometimes she can't use it. It goes numb and tingles. She has many other symptoms such as headaches that lasts days, both eyes went blind for a few seconds. She has involuntary jerks of her shoulders, arms, fingers, legs, feet toes. Other symptoms that are just too numerous to list. She has had an MRA, MRI of cerv. spine, and brain and EEG. All have come back normal. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. She has burning and electrical shock sensations, pins and needles. Drs. say it is stress. We can't believe that because of other times during extreme stress, this has never happened. Especially since most of the numbness is on the right side. Memory loss, confusion and lost 20 lbs. Thanks so much for your help.
