Transient Numbness

Monday, 02 July 2012 08:33 AM

Question: My 30-year-old daughter and I have both had incidents where our right side goes numb. Neither of us had the medical markers of stroke when we went to the hospital. Do you have any idea what this could be?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

It is important to understand that strokes and TIAs can be accompanied by a severe headache. But if you have had a complete vascular workup and no problems were found, migraine is a strong possibility. A small percentage of people with migraine problems will have transient weakness and/or numbness on one side of the body. This is called a hemiplegic migraine. In rare instances, this can be followed by permanent paralysis.
