The numbness comes and goes for me too. It's actually minimal today. But, I can still feel it down over my left shoulder blade. And I have an almost constant headache. I'm trying not to take too much pain medication so that I have a clearer picture of things when I see the doctor again on Friday. The Neurontin wasn't helping at all, except to make me sleepy. So I quit taking it. I've had some dizziness the last two days, as well. I couldn't tell if it was coming from the condition or the Neurontin -- another reason I stopped taking it.

I've had a head and chest CT, chest x-rays, 24hr heart monitor, and numerous blood tests. I was told it was not a stroke. (Hope not... I'm only 46.) I have no visible signs, no muscle weakness on either side. And I am already on Coumadin, a blood thinner, which, fortunately, will lessen the likelihood of stroke. The ER doctor felt strongly that it is probably a virus of some kind that just needs to run it's course. I hope he's right, but I'm not going to wait very long before asking for a referral to a neurologist. Thanks for your input. Let me know how your second opinion turns out.
