Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Thanks for writing into JA!
The fact that you have slurring speech, pain that runs down your arm and up to your neck, concerns me. Have you had a MRI or a CT scan done? Has a Neurologist seen or consulted with you?
The period being MIA (missing in action) is normal, you are breast feeding. It is one of the perks of doing so.
The high white count means that there is an infection somewhere and that is the reason for all the antibiotic and anti-viral medication.
The biggest concern, however, sill remains , the speech and the ability to form words and thoughts. As well the pain from arm to shoulder.
Thanks for letting me know the answers to those questions.
I hesitate to say this, but from everything you are telling me...you have given all the signs and symptoms of a stroke.
The only way to know for sure is if you go to a neurologist and he confirms it.
Why do I say this? Because you have had pain in the arm and back to the neck, you have slurred speech and you are having difficulty.
The misconception with strokes is that they only happen to old people or that they only happen to people that are in the hospital with heart conditions. This is wrong. Children can have CVAs (Cerebral Vascular Accidents). Please do not wait on this. I truly believe that this is what has occurred.
