On December 31, 2009 at 32 yrs old I was having numbness on my leftside. I was taken to the hospital to be told that I was having a stroke. When I was at the hospital the doctors did (what seem like a million) test and said that they couldn't find out why I had this stroke but they did say that I did have about 12 spots that they thought were TIA's . Then about 4 months later I had 2 strokes at the same time on the back of the brain and the other on the front of the brain on the opposite side while I was backing out of the driveway. Yet again I was rushed to the hospital and then I was life flighted to another hospital. I was told by the doctors they had no clue as to why I was having these strokes. After having my last stroke I am having tremors all day even when I am resting. I also keep losing strenght on side, along with being clumsy and restlessness. 11 years ago my uncle died from ALS and last year my grandmother (his mother) died with Parkinson's, is there anyway that maybe the doctors are just focusing on the fact that I had these strokes at a young age and not looking at the whole picture with my symptoms?View Thread
Thank you for your input. I did request for a spinal tap and I got it but when the results came back they said it wasn't MS. I am now on neurologist number 4, I have even been to the Cleveland Clinic and no one has any clue as to what is going on. I will definitely let the doctor know about the new symptoms.View Thread
