Continuing the discussion from Getting upset and numbness:
I just came across this old post and had to revive it (I couldn’t figure out how to reply to it). My unruptured brain AVM is in my right frontal lobe in the area of the premotor cortex for my left leg. Right after my diagnosis I started experiencing a ghost-like feeling of my whole left leg like the feeling had faded compared to the rest of my body. I thought it must be psychosomatic since the AVM has been there since birth and I had only ever had a bit of an odd feeling in the back of my calf occasionally. Why else would I suddenly get a symptom just because I know about it? After awhile the ghostliness started going away and my leg felt normal but last night I was very upset over something and the ghostliness came back. I now realize that right after my AVM diagnosis I was also quite upset.
Does anyone know why something like this would happen physiologically? Anyone experiencing similar? I have an appointment with my neurosurgeon soon and I’ll ask him, but I’d like to hear what you all think too. Thanks to @grammy623 for the original post. Grammy, if you see this post, I’d like to know if you’re still having this issue. Thanks.
