My 44 year old sister having numbness/tingling on one side of body. Only in arm, hand, leg, foot & 1/2 of her face and head. None in trunk. Help?!?!

Neurologist: Sounds like an immediate trip to the neurologist. A central nervous system or spinal issue can cause numbness on only one side of the body. This can be dangerous so i would seek immediate help.
