Dear customer,

You should not take it lightly as the numbness in left hand and leg may be due to the decreased blood supply to brain or may be part of the initial stage of stroke/haemorrhage in the brain.

The timely treatment is advised.You should consult a neurologist and have the ct scan/mri of the brain done to know the underlying etiology and have the treatment at the earliest.

Let me know here if you have any doubt or else rate me positive if you are satisfied.

Thank you

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
