    I'm having these feelings of my left arm going numb and/or tingling. At other times, my right side feels as if someone is pouring cold water down my head and it's flowing over my right arm and leg. With my left arm, I've come to realize that if I get a friend to give it a quick jerk, it gets better. As for the right side, the doc thinks it may be a new clot in my neck.

    So because of all of this, she's sending me to a neurologist. I had seen my doc 3 weeks ago and she told me not to expect to hear from him before 6 months was up. I now have my ap't with the neuro on July 12. Should this worry me that it is happening so quickly?

    I know clots are nothing to sneeze at, afterall I had a DVT that ran from my left knee into my chest cavity last year. What's got me worried is the posibility of having a new one in my neck where it can very easily travel to my brain (if it hasn't already).

    A little scared, a little nervous,

    Before they found was a tumour thought i had anuerysm! Also thought that was causing a bleed hence small foci showed up! Get checked right away.

    Thank-you guys, I appreciate the support. I don't know what to do or think anymore with my health, if it's not one thing, it's another! I woke up with a miserable migrane, so I'm not going to sit here and chat too long!

    Talk to you all later,

    Hi Darude!

    No, I haven't gotten checked yet, my app't isn't till the 12 of July. Sucks having to wait, but thems the breaks sometimes.

    Thanks for the concern,

    Getting a little frustrated at all the tests. Neurologist ordered an MRI, and tests with an ear/nose/throat specialist as well as an eye specialist. Couldn't say what was going on with anything else! Just have to wait and see I guess.

    Wish me luck!
