    Question Dizziness & Numbness of the Tongue

    I've just had an odd experience. I woke up around midnight (a common occurrence these last months) and as I was watching the television I suddenly got very dizzy and my tongue went numb. It only lasted about 10 minutes, but what the hell was that all about?

    Re: Dizziness & Numbness of the Tongue

    I don't want to put the frighteners on you HT, but dizziness can be to do with the heart. Numbness of the tongue, because there are so many blood vessels in the tongue, could indicate that there may be a blockage of some sort, maybe a blood clot? I seriously advise having a thorough check-up at your doctors, and sooner rather than later...........

    my medical knowledge is limited to when something new is wrong with me, but better to get a quick check then to wait for it to happen again, IMO.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.

    Re: Dizziness & Numbness of the Tongue

    Thanks Gill and Flopstock. Some source on the internet said the symtoms were a sign that I am about to have a stroke. I've been trying to see a doctor since early this morning, left my number but 6 hours later ........ nothing. I just rang again. Still nothing. I could ring the emergency services but I'm not one for drama.

    Well, my doctor has me take a baby aspirin a day to help prevent stroke, but I read as many negatives as I do positives on that one.

    It is not a matter I feel competent to comment on. Every Google search I've tried suggests you're pregnant.

    I hope your proper medic responds soon, you must be feeling frustrated after this delay.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I have to agree with this... 'they' say you have 12 hours from stroke onset to have a chance of preventing permanent damage. You need to be looked at soon.

    You are obviously concerned, HT. What does your wife think ? Maybe it would be a good idea, under the circumstances, to ring the emergency services, better safe than sorry. Don't be too proud, what action you take now could affect the rest of your life ! Do you have 'Drop in Medical Centres' like we have in the UK ? If so go there. You can't raise your doctor and you are worried that you may be having a warning that you could be on the verge of a stroke, so you ring the emergency services ! Job done ! It does concern me that there is no return call from your doctor's office though ! Bugger the drama HT, just ring the emergency services !
