Since the left side of my body remains quite numb as a result of Bell's palsy (11 years ago) could the numbness be a cause?
Saw the dermatologist a few days ago--She has always believed the diagnosis of West Nile was wrong and it was a stroke--and the scan showed brain damage at the time
But would this be happening 11 years after the stroke?
I'm grateful for your information--It was actually my brain stem that was damaged--Little or no therapy was available (for W Nile) and I mapped out a route and for 7 years walked 2 1/2 miles every night--couldn't walk during the day--If distracted would fall--My balance is still not good--Thank you--I always knew it was a stroke--
