  1. Lightening. That is about the best analogy I read about what happened to me, just sitting and the whole left side slowly goes numb. Throwing up, vertigo, had no idea what was happening. MRI and CT showed no stroke on the initial emergency visit, I was asked if I was an IV drug user. Took till just last week to determine I had a stroke with a contrast MRI. I have a minor stroke, I feel very fortunate and it has been a long ride already as it was only 3-months ago. I lost partial feeling on my left side but retained all heat and cold sensation and my coordination is intact. I have total use of my limbs but experience a constant tingling and some pain. I am terrified of having another one, or the one I have now getting worse. My neurologist is not very helpful as I am "another stroke survivor" and I do not get much in the way of consol, like nill. I am grateful to find this forum. I cannot read an MRI so I have no idea where the stroke is but I am thinking it is the flocculonodular lobe.
