A Trip to the ER

With three boys this probably won't be the last time we see the ER, but this time it was my turn. I was at home, after having worked out, last Wednesday when I started having trouble seeing. Like I had stars in front of my eyes. Then I started feeling dizzy and my head hurt. So, I laid down for a while. Pierce got home for lunch about that time, so he was there to help with the boys. Then I was sitting on the couch, talking to the boys, when my hands and face started going numb. The numbness moved around both arms and all over my face. After a couple of hours we decided to go to the ER to see what was wrong. They did a couple of tests-an EKG, an MRI-and finally told us that they didn't know what was wrong. :( They said it definitely wasn't a stroke or MS, and told me to go see a Neurologist. Pierce and I think it could have been a pinched nerve in my neck or something, but we really don't know. It kind of freaked me out, so if you have had any experience with something like that let me know!
