Avatar m tn My nearly 84 year old mother suffered a "major" stroke 2 days ago. She has not opened her eyes, though she shows signs of awareness and can follow directions when asked. She is sleeping allot. Initially she lost movement on her left side, but it very slowly seems to be coming back. She is saying words, though they are hard to understand. She is receiving IV fluids. The doctor said they would give her another day and see if she "wakes up".
Avatar n tn I keep going through the day my husband had a stroke over and over in my mind almost every day. My husband had a bad headache...that was the first symptom that I didn't recognize. Then, he asked me to help him to the bathroom...he leaned on me...second clue. Last, I noticed his speech was kind of slurred...third clue. It was my husbands payday and I thought he had been drinking and that's why he had the slurred speech.
Avatar m tn For one of my final year projects I am intending to design a product/service that aids stroke survivors through rehabilitation and the transition back to day to day activities. The brief also touches on making assistive technologies more aesthetically pleasing, moving away from large chunky white handrails for example. I understand that every stroke is different but would welcome any thoughts you may have towards my project, as well as any other issues you my have.

Avatar n tn I have had migraines since I was 16 (1985-6) when I had a mental breakdown. At the onset, I was having them nearly every day and they would last a few hours to a few days. After about 4 months, they gradually became fewer and farther between. I would have 2-6 a year after that until August 26, 2011. I had never heard of silent migraines, I just kept taking my anti depressants, and dealt with it. It wasn't "life threatening", or so I thought.

Avatar f tn Hi all, my 80 year old dad had a TACHs stroke 11 days ago. He has had 2 heart attacks previously and underwent a triple heart bypass. He has no movement in his left side at all. He is still being hospitalised and receiving physio most days. I see no improvement at all. I grieved deeply the first week as I know I will no longer have the father I used to have.

Avatar n tn My father had a hemorrhagic stroke 10 days ago. His right side is paralyzed and he can't speak and he can't swallow. In the first five or so days, he seemed to have some awareness and was able to answer yes or no questions by pointing at YES or NO on a sheet of paper. When they asked him to hold up two fingers, he could hold up two fingers. Unfortunately, because of the dysphagia, he had to go on and off of a ventilator twice, and now he seems to be much less cognizant.
744637 tn?1250803022 Hi, It is difficult to differentiate complicated migraine from stroke. The symptoms of stroke develop very rapidly while the symptoms of complicated migraine develop insidiously. MRI and CT scan in patients of stroke shows the characteristic small vessel ischemic changes. The best treatment for migraine is recognition and avoidance of trigger. Medications like NSAIDS are used to abort acute attacks of migraine. Other medications include butalbital, isometheptene and botox.
Avatar f tn I was told that my elderly mom had a major stroke, first by a clot, they have said.. and then another issue days later(?) cause by an atrial fibrillation. Now they say the situation is critical... R sided stroke, and my mom hasn't really regained consciousness. her MRI shows one major stoke, and then a subsequent one caused by bleeding. Mannitol given and swelling of the brain has greatly subsided. Reacts to painful stimuli, by moving toes, when pinched under the arm. NG tube in place.
Avatar n tn which is where we took mom when she had a stroke in 2011. But his place never tried to help mom to talk again. She did not get that done until we got her to my sister's house where we got her home health speech therapy. home health also helped her to get walking back. We weened her off of the strong meds so she could stay awake to do the theory. my answer is check the meds your relative is on and the side effects against each other.
Avatar f tn My baby passed away March 7, 2011. Im in the grieving process and cannot except that the medical examiner cannot find a reason. There must be something wrong that medical science hasnt been able to find. These healthy babies just dont die in their sleep for no reason. Do we need to raise money for SIDS research so us Moms can find some peace to know why?
