I am right-handed. I recently had some major health issues, including numbness in my right arm, a tremor in my right hand, drooping in my face on the right side, numbness in my legs etc. 2 MRIs showed I had an 'older' persons' brain, as there were areas which had died, but it wasn't changing like it would if I had MS or other disease. I got to a stage I had trouble some days putting up my hair, or writing. I'd go to write some days and say a letter in my head and write a different letter on the page. I even felt like I was walking on a slope, and had balance problems. My nuerologist wasn't any real help, because even with lumber punches, muscle tests etc there wasn't a 'disease' he could say was causing the symptoms. It was recommended by a friend I see a chriopractor. He sent me to see one of of 2 neurological chiros in Aust. It turned out I had a disfunctioning of the left side of my brain. Basically the right side was functioning at about 70% and the left 50%. After completing a year of some really odd exercises I now have about 100% right and 90% left side brain functioning. Most of my symptoms have gone, although I still do things like say letters in my head and write something else, but on the whole I'm much better and not worried about drooling (The right side of my mouth was numb and turned down a bit). It just goes to show that even though we might have a dominance for one side, we actually need both sides to work to function. The one thing that makes me a bit sad is that I used to be a great public speaker. I would lead parades at school, run the school disco as DJ etc. But I can not speak in public at all now.I feel like I'm going to pass out I get so anxious. And that is something I have lost for ever. But I figure, it is a small cost. It could have been worse. And I can at least say I have a reason for forgetting things etc because my brain is so much older!!
