Worrisome: Blocks are strokes - is this the cause of your weakness?You may recover and never have another, but this could also be a warning of another stroke and that could cause loss of function that might not recover. Control your high BP and you may be started on aspirin. At the time of a stroke, you may start on blood thinners and tpa (alteplase). Post stroke rehab activities are valuable but may take effort.
