Again!?

Question: Can I get a stoke on the same side again? My left side was affected, but I keep getting a tingling feeling on my face too, so I don't know if it's happening again or if this is normal.


Answer: You can experience a stroke on the same side. If this tingling feeling comes and goes, it may be a result of the initial stroke. If you just started this tingling feeling, and it is new (in the past few hours or days), then I would call your doctor or visit an ER to make sure that it's not an acute event. If it has been going on for a while (weeks to months), then it probably doesn't warrant an ER visit, and you can schedule a doctor's appointment to determine causes and possible treatment. The doctor's office can help you decide if you need to come in immediately or not.
