    Those are the exact symptoms I’ve been having. Numbness & weakness, on one side & in the leg on the same side, slurred speech, confusion, blurred vision, dizziness, headaches. Went by ambulance on Saturday & drove myself on Wednesday to e.r. Saturday they called it a virus caused by a parasite & sent me home because I did have some diarrhea because I was nervous & terrified. Wednesday at a different hospital e.r. I had the same symptoms without diarrhea, they ran a ct scan, & saw nothing. My bp ran high for several hrs while there. They found nothing wrong in my scan. Gave me headache med, nausea med then sent me home. I am now convinced after listening to this interview that I had tia’s. I told myself I’d ride these symptoms out next time, should I get them because I felt embarrassed. Maybe I will take low dose aspirins nightly, not sure what else to do.
