Hi all... I am new to this forum.
Well, here it is. I am a 50 year old woman, and I have been struggling with increasing tightness of my hamstrings and my achilles tendons. So, I decided to do some pretty strong stretches so that I can try and walk better in the morning. Last week, after a good stretch before bedtime, I fell asleep on my left side. ( not my usual side ) I woke up, tried to stand and fell straight down. NO USE of my legs. I had no idea that they were asleep, or dead, or whatever. Then I tried to walk and fell again. I realized that I could NOT feel the floor. FELT PARALYZED. Panic took over. I got up and then got my legs back. I am seeing a neuro soon.... so, do you think I had a mini stroke? Brain tumor? I have been sleeping a lot, and feeling like nodding off at work and driving.. Never been so tired.
Thoughts? You guys, I've been depressed for a while. Last year was a bad year. I am trying to get in shape and this ... was scary.
