Friday February 8th I had severe arm pain on my right side that came on suddenly and it lasted about 15 minutes, the pain went down to a bearble level along with weakness and numbness. While I was talking to my doctor I also had pain, weakness and numbness in my right leg. She told me to go to the ER. They gave me a CT scan and an MRI at the ER and both came back normal, no sign of a stroke, thank god! I was admitted to the hospital for further testing. They ran another MRI to look at my blood vessels this time and ran an echocardiogram and a bubble test all came back normal. They gave me a heparin shot in my stomach as a precaution. My blood work showed that I am low in potassium. I was finally released from the hospital at 4pm Saturday February 9th.
I still have residual pain, weakness and numbness on my right side and no answers as to why. I did my yoga routine this morning and it left me exhausted. So I am going to rest as much as possible. The sudden and severe arm pain scared me it was so bad I was crying and screaming from the pain. It is still scary having the residual effects now as well.
