Avatar f tn I have been doing physical therapy and occupational therapy before I got out of the hospital in March 2010 and continued afterwards. I have also been doing strength training at the gym 3 to 4 days a week as well. The general concensus was that the stroke was brought on by my battle with terminal breast cancer for 2 years. I was declared cancer-free two weeks before the stroke occurred. I'm beginning to wonder if I can recover from this disasterous event and get my life back.

Avatar f tn Itching could occur after stroke if the stroke is in the thalamus area of the brain which receives the sensory information of pain , touch , temperature , pressure and other sensations from all over the body . The onset may be from days to weeks after the stroke . Topical therapy with moisturizers and emollients helps alleviate the itching . Treatment with amitriptylene 50 mg a day results in resolution of the itching . Some patients respond to Carbamazepine also.
Avatar m tn Does this mean no one has hearde of this therapy being used for stroke? There is a hybebaric oxygen facility in one hospital and there are two private facilities in my state that do this.
Avatar f tn what happens with significant MVR some blood fails to pumped into circulation with each stroke. To maintain adequate blood flow with a decrease in stroke volume is to increase the heart rate. The math for cardiac output is stroke volume times heart rate for one minute. Frankly, I don't believe you have significant MVR because you should also have the symptoms of shortness of breath with exertion and muscle fatigue.
Avatar f tn My husband just had a mild stroke 4 days ago. He is sleeping a lot. Should I keep waking him up or does his body need the sleep time to heal??
Avatar n tn I recently had a mild stroke in the left hemisphere of my brain. About two weeks later I started having a problem with my left arm and hand falling asleep. At first this was just an annoyance however, the tingling sensation has been happening more often and with more intensity. Could this problem be caused by the stroke? Will it eventually go away? Can I do anything to help eliminate this problem? Could someone explain why this is happening?
Avatar n tn My 49 year old brother had a massive left hemisphere stroke last August, leaving him paralyzed on the right side and he has made great progress with various modes of walking therapy. He now walks without any aids, albeit slowly and with difficulty. He does walk on a treadmill as part of his therapy and studies are showing that it's excellent for improving the gait to a more normal pattern.
Avatar n tn Hi Jerry You did not say when you had the stroke or how severe. My husband had his first stroke 5 years ago at 55 & last week another mild one. His name is Jerry also! Please please take your time & do not rush the healing process. Have you been receiving any type of physical therapy? This will help you know your limitations. My husband was never able to get back 100% but some issues were enhanced by diabetes & neuropathy problems.
Avatar f tn I had stroke at the age of 26. Do you know anyone that's happen to? My neurologist a Said they couldn't find any reason this should have happen to me.
500374 tn?1210071413 I didn't have a brainstem stroke, but I did have a stroke and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? Also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. It is very difficult to tell if he will be able to recover completely or not. There is no way of finding out for sure. Please continue with speech therapy. Hopefully he will respond to it. It requires patience and perseverance. Please be optimistic and do not give up. Good luck!
Avatar f tn What is your opinion on oxygen therapy for stroke recovery? Has anyone had any experience with this?
511186 tn?1211113572 i still have the migraines which was helped by physical therapy, but unfortunatley was forced to end physical therapy early due to insurance. now i am suffering from new symptoms including dizziness caused by lights and sounds, mild confusion, and black spots flying around in front of my eyes.
1133274 tn?1260361928 What could possibly happen to someone who just had a mild stroke with a little blood clotting on the right side of the brain? I´m a mother of two, seperated for a couple of years now. I just suffered from a mild stroke last week. I undergone all the test right after i reached the ER. I had CT scanning.... but they sent me to MR scanning because they can´t really see if i had a blood clotting. I regained the feeling on my left side after 5 hours in the hospital...
139792 tn?1498585650 s hospital recently (8 months ago) installed an EECP for therapy. The doctor has anecdotal evidence the therapy helps those with angina (chest pain from lack of adequate blood flow to the heart). He stated at the last visit a patient was able to play 3 rounds of golf when prior didn't have the energy with chest pain. That is attributed to increasing collateral blood feed to under supplied heart areas. Most private insurance companies have coverage similar to Medicare.
Avatar m tn Did your husband ever get any physical therapy or speech therapy after his stroke? I got physical therapy a year and half later after my stroke, in addition to the physical therapy and speech therapy that I got following my stroke. It could probably help your husband.
1821865 tn?1317522031 I started providing such therapy to a 99 year old woman with partial left sided-paralysis secondary to a stroke, and it disappeared after two years. She is now 108 years old. The MRSA infection is far more serious. I am up on this because I have one now. I picked mine up in a hospital, and the antibiotics are expensive and not too effective. Surgery was necessary to remove my infection. You need a consult with an infectious control specialist at a teaching hospital..Do this immediately.
Avatar n tn mental imagery, passive movement, mirror-box therapy, thermal therapy. I would say your crucial answer is to completely understand neuroplasticity and find therapists who understand how to do that.
Avatar f tn For most stroke patients, the rehabilitation process includes nursing, occupational therapy (OT), physical therapy (PT), therapeutic recreation (TR) and speech therapy (or speech language therapy, SLP). OT involves exercise and training to help the stroke patient relearn everyday activities, sometimes called the Activities of daily living (ADLs), such as eating and drinking, dressing, bathing, cooking, reading and writing, and toileting.
Avatar m tn Hi d- My father had a stroke in April. One of the most helpful things we did for him was acupuncture. In China apparently when you have a stroke you go to a acupuncture hospital. Other things helped, including physical, occupational and speech therapy.
