Fingers crossed

  1. Just sent a kiddo to ER w/ mom. Presented with numb and tingly R face and arm, floaters (green) in R eye, possibly a twitch/droop on R side of face. Don't know the child well enough to know what is normal. Hoping for an ocular migraine at best; or Bells Palsy... and praying for it not to be a neurological event.

    I have been down this road before with kids and the outcome has not been good.

    I will keep you posted

    Hopefully part of the workup. I have worked with this family practice doc before and he was ordering tests at the ER from the office before they got there.

    Green floaters? I have never heard of floaters in color before.

    Hope everything is ok with this kiddo. Glad the PCP is on top of things!!!
