... chol and trigs. I started having stroke like symptoms 4 years ago, they did an MRI and found 20 brain lesions and started to thing MS. After six months of testing a neurologist said the lesions looked more like stroke lesions. They questioned TIAs. I have not had any attacks for a year (numb in face, tongue feels fat, hard to talk, stuttering, cant walk, and all these are shortlived symptoms) but ive had THREE this week. now, and in the past, only happens in hot weather. never in the winter. does this make sense?
