Dr. Mahan Chehrenama
Specializes in Neurology
Many possibilities: Paroxymal weakness, numbness and altered level of consciousness are all suggestive of a central nervous system disorder. The altered awareness may suggest seizure like events. The periodic weakness, paralysis and numbness of limbs may suggest a warning of a stroke. You should seek formal neurologic evaluation.
