I have spent two days at the hospital, CT scan and MRI both showing negative. My symtoms started with numbness in my right leg, and slowly moving up the right side of my body. Within 3 - 4 hours I could feel the numbness move from my leg, hip, arm, and shoulder. It finally stopped at my brow. It is now 4 days after the occurance. Most all numbness is now gone except for the right side of my face.
I noticed a day prior too the numbness, my vision was blurry at times.
I had a slight headache during the two day period.
I felt and still feel very weak.
Any suggestions as to what this might be?
This could cause a number of different symptoms, but a loss of sensation is one of the more likely ones. The other type of trauma results from a branch of the nerve becoming compressed. This is akin to sleeping on one’s arm with the result that the arm “goes to sleep,” a somewhat uncomfortable condition usually consisting of an initial numbness followed by a “pins and needles” sensation. Sleeping in an awkward position is one of the leading causes of trauma to the nerve and can result in facial numbness that, while temporary, can sometimes last for several hours or even longer.
