What could be causing weakness and numbness on my left side?


Answer by  John (9008)

This is usually a sign of a neurological problem, such as a stroke. You should seek medical attention as soon as possible, as it may not heal on its own.

Weakness and numbness on one side of the body are classic signs of a stroke or a heart attack, so you should seek medical help immediately. Early detection increases your chance of successful treatment, and your doctor can examine you for risk of future problems.

This indicates that the nerves have been damaged. A mini stroke may have occurred or it could be the early signs of sclerosis.

If this is a sudden event it could be a heart attack or stroke. The other possibilities are strained muscles, MS, or partial paralysis. Go see your Doctor.
