Avatar f tn Since you experienced the symptoms three days back and they are still persistent most probably you have suffered a Stroke. The symptoms that you are experiencing- numbness of left hand and cheek also support the probable diagnosis. A stroke is a medical emergency and may cause permanent neurological damage and serious complications. A stroke can occur due to ischemia (lack of blood supply) caused by thrombosis or embolism or due to a brain hemorrhage.

If he was on blood thinners, they would potentially transfuse him to remove the blood thinner from his body so he can clot properly. I'm not sure where any of this is at in terms of your dad and if the emergency period is over. What are the doctors saying in terms of prognosis?

Avatar n tn Dad (age 72) is 3 months status post stroke (left side of brain in the back) and left the hosptial with neuropathy in his right arm. No pain but an intense sensation of coldness with a pins and needles sensation. Two months after discharge, the neuropathy has spread to right side of face, neck, side, and down right leg. Is it typical for neuropathy to spread? Does it indicate extension of stroke? Can anything be done to relieve the discomfort. Will it get better or go away.
755322 tn?1330269114 Has it helped, yes and no. I feel my brain is sharper in that I can concentrate for longer periods of time than before. My over all fatigue is better but not as good as just after the procedure. I have slipped back a bit over the year. Walking is worse. I am not sure clearing internal jugular blockages and blockages in the Azygos vein has much to do with walking performance. It helped in the beginning a bit, but that could have been a placebo effect. My walking has deteriorated pretty badly.

Avatar n tn ========================================================== Hello, Wyane, Depending on the location of the stroke inside the brain, the symptoms can vary significantly. The left-sided spasticity usually would have come from a stroke on the righ-sided brain. Clinically, spasticity is a common post-stroke finding. The involuntary movements or jerking, which I assume is on the left side, can be another sequala of the stroke.
