In brief: Definitely something

It's quite surprising to get such a question on healthtap.
Clearly what is occurring should elicit a response of fear, or a rather extreme case of denial. There's a neurologic state called neglect' in stroke victims: paralyzed side is neglected in such a way that person is unaware that it exists. Denial is the #1 cause of diagnoses being made too late. Emergency room, now.
