Question: Can both sides of face have numbness with TIA's

 Fireball311 - Thu Sep 11, 2008 1:21 pm

My wife had something happen this weekend in which she had double vision, and both checks, and surrounding areas of her eyes became numb. The numbness also ran up the forehead area also. We went to the family doctor and he stated a tia would not affect both sides of the face. Her blood work stated high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, which he seemed to think was the cause. She is still upset over the attack and I was just wondering if both sides of the face could be affected with a tia.
