Stroke

Numbness

09/28/2007

Question:

My otherwise very health husband of 56 has been having pressure in the top of his head and numbness coming and going in his left hand and the top of his left foot. Who do we see to get further help? He has had an MRI and it was fine. His symptoms continue and are getting more pronounced. Thank you!

Answer:

I would advise seeing a neurologist. They can provide a detailed history and examination, and can review the MRI. From the information you provided, I cannot give you any other information.
