Weird Body Happenings
Hi! I'm new to Scope and I am very lost as to where I should be posting. I am having weird body happenings. I went to Lowe's today to pick up some tubing. After picking up what I needed I began walking towards the cash registers at the front of the store and my legs would not move any faster than a shuffle. Everyone was looking at me an asking if I was alright. Someone asks if I could make it to my car. So I am going to be 57 very soon, but I am in good shape, not over weight. I'm 5'7", 130 pounds and I have a house with a lot of stairs. But Now I can't move very fast, my face is numb feeling on the left side and I will slur my words or only be able to whisper. This has been happening off and on for a couple of years, but it's happening more often now. I had a neurologist do a MRI on my brain and he said I had a lot of white matter for my age. But no doctor has seen my symptoms, they have only heard me describe it and they say nothing. Does anyone know what could be happening to me? Thank you for any support! God is Good!
