This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

how old are you?

Dr. David :

have you had these symptoms again? of the tingling in the arm and leg?

Dr. David :

only a cat scan? no MRI scan?

Dr. David :

what consultant are you seeing next week?

JACUSTOMER-f6w7uaqd- :

Am54 yes tingling still there although not as strong think could b pinchef nerve no mri scan seeing prof barer at sund royal next werk thanks

Dr. David :

it could be a pinched nerve in your spine

Dr. David :

it might not be a stroke or blood clot.

Dr. David :

you need a D Dimer blood test to see if that is elevated. it can be elevated in some patients who have blood clots.

Dr. David :

an MRI scan of the brain would be much better at looking for strokes (but I don't think you have one)

Dr. David :

and an MRI scan of your spine would be best to look for pinched nerves.

Dr. David :

I think you can drive for now, just be careful.
