I just experienced the weirdest thing. I had the sensation like someone
had scared me, heart raced, etc, then got very light headed and queazy
feeling in stomach, then goose bumps. All of a sudden feel very tired.
Could this be a mini stroke? I am 50 yrs old, normal blood pressure,
do not smoke. Vicki
Answer: Dear Vicki,
The signs of a stroke are usually
a sudden display of the following:
- Numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the face, arm, or leg, typically
on one side of the body.
- Vision problems in one or both eyes, such as dimness, blurring,
double vision, or loss of vision.
- Confusion, trouble speaking or understanding.
- Trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.
- Severe headache.
The symptoms you mention could
be due to a sudden drop in blood pressure.
