Include: loss of feeling in right hand, inability to use hand to write, grip, twist wrist, although no pain; also, occasional slurred speech and occasional nausea and dizziness. I went to the ER and all blood tests and CT scan was normal. A few days before this onset I had several episodes of falling to floor and blacking out just momentarily. I've been under a great deal of stress but feel like this just had to be a stroke despite normal test results.
You sound very much like it was a stroke of some sort. I learned they can happen in odd areas of the brain, but cause similar symptoms as you relate. Definitely see a specialist, neurologist, etc..a regular CTscan might not be enough. I remember they put me thru many tests bubble test, cardiogram, and much more than a CT. My hand weakness went a way after a week in hospital, but leg still weak after one year.
The blacking out and such is really serious..no job stress should cause that! You may lose your ability to have a driver's license until you are treated considered well enough, but be honest with Dr. you see, causing a car wreck and killing/maiming yourself or others if you black out is unthinkable. Take care of yourself now and prevent further strokes or damage. Good luck
