Left side numbness face to toe

Hi for the last year I've suffered periods of body aches etc but over the last few days I have felt tingly numb on my left side right down to my toes but just the little one and the one beside it.  My two finger on my left hand exactly the same.
My brother died from atherosclerosis at 32 there are lots if heart problems in my family too.  My last echo and monitor showed ectopic beats.  I have an appointment with my gp tomorrow.  Anyone else suffered this?

I am sorry to hear about your medical problems.  Half a body numbness that comes and goes can be due to a mini stroke or transient ischemic attack, compression of spinal nerves, Vit B12 deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, anemia, vaso-vagal attack, multiple sclerosis, hypothyroidism, diabetes and panic attack. It can also be a type of seizure.
Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor regarding this as soon as you can. Hope this helps. Take care!
