After the entire left side of her body went numb and tingly, Stacey Yepes went to her local hospital for help, with what she believed to be, a stroke.

Doctors said it wasn’t a stroke, but instead, something that was stress related.

The next time it happened, Yepes pulled out her smart phone, and recorded herself.

Her video was eventually shown to doctors at Toronto Western Hospital, and her self-diagnosis was confirmed– Stacey had had three mini strokes.

She is now at home recovering.

Her local hospital asked for her video to learn from it.
