I had a bleed on the brain back in 1996 which affected my left side, I have lost some of the use in my left hand and arm, and have trouble walking. I had to learn to write right handed, as I was left handed. I have pain and burning in the arm hand and leg all the time. I have been prescribed gabapentin and tramadol for the pain; it helps put does not do away with it entirely.

I cannot move my right side after my stroke. I can nearly walk.
