    Loss of balance, tingling on left side.

    18 months ago, I had a stroke. Since then, I have constant tingling on my left side, from head down to toes. It is not painful but very annoying. Worse yet, fingers are numb and I lose balance when standing; so walking is impossible. Months of intensive physical therapy, acupuncture, electro-stimulation did nothing, Any suggestions?

    Spironalactone Side Effects

    My Dr. put me on spironalactone for my hirstuism. First it was 50mg daily and I had no problem and no change. Now he put me on 100mg daily.

Im not sure if I should continue these pills or if this is completely unrelated and need to see a Dr.
