But I'm only 57 and healthy
On the night of 30 November my husband and I were making love when I could not pick up my left arm. I sat up and tried to walk to the bathroom but I needed help walking. My husband saw my face droop and called the ambulance..we did neuro checks which I failed all of them. I am a registered nurse who had worked on a neuro floor!!
