Common Questions and Answers about Stroke awareness keychain


Avatar n tn My 85 yo mother has suffered a massive stroke 6 weeks ago. She is paralysed on her right side and has lost most of her speech. She is able to eat thickened food but cannot drink as she aspirates into her lungs. She has developed severe tremors in her left leg with associated loss of awareness and loud groaning. She appears to be in pain, but does not lose consciousness. The loss of awareness begins before the tremors and continues after the tremors. These events can continue for over 10 minutes.
458384 tn?1295720656 So much of life we all pass by With heedless ear, and careless eye. Bent with our cares we plod along, Blind to the beauty, deaf to the song. But moments there are when we pause to rest And turn our eyes from the goal's far crest. We become aware of the wayside flowers, And sense God's hand in the world of ours. We hear a refrain, see a rainbow's end, Or we look into the heart of a friend. We feel at one with mankind. We share His griefs and glories, joy and care.
Avatar n tn I posted under the 'stroke and awareness' earlier, but should probably have done some general questions first.
Avatar m tn s thankfully improving, with right side weakness and spasticity gradually improving. However, her cognitive awareness is minimal and so is her short-term memory: she can understand the present, but loses it all in half an hours' time. Long term memories are better though. She is also not able to realize that she needs to perform basic daily activities like gooing to the loo, eating, etc by herself which (perhaps) is leading to bowel control problems.
1399033 tn?1449587779 Well my fiancé and I were out shopping last night and I came across a little baby shoe made into a keychain. Can I just say how cute that thing was?! Lol....We started talking and thought it'd be cute for the grandparents to have. So for our mothers we thought it would be neat to make them open a box that says to "Memaw" and my mom..."Nana"......
Avatar n tn old active farmer- great health) had a tracotr accident NOT caused by a stroke (he called for help and remained lucid throughout) ll pelvic fractures, most likely had a fat embolis stroke which has caused left hemianopia (left vision/awareness loss in both eyes).

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 we are doing some research into how we can raise awareness of strokes and what peoplpe can do if someone they know has one. I was wondering if there was anything any one wishes they had known before the stroke happened - either to yourself or a relative / friend?

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with mild spasic cerebral palsy when I was born. Due to a brain hemmorrage, I had to undergo 4 brain surgeries, and 9 corrective eye surgeries over the course of 14 years. I don't know what the cause of any of these things is, and I was also 3 months premature.
Avatar n tn Posted By lrc on February 08, 1998 at 23:09:36: I am a 29 yr. old female who suffered an embolic stroke at the age of 22. After much "sleuthing", my neurology team concluded that the infarct in my cerebellum was caused by Mitral Valve Prolapse and reguritation (plus atrial fibrillation). The stroke has left me with constant/unchanging vertigo. Testing has shown it is neurological in nature vs. inner ear related.
Avatar f tn My friend's fiance put her diamond ring on her keychain and she just happened to see it dangling as she opened the door at the end of her date .....
Avatar n tn My Mother had a similar stroke. She is 56 days after surgery. She has opened her left eye and has moved her right hand a bit. Her other limbs seem to move only slightly. We haven't been able to even get the doctor to try any rehabiltation for her. He says her prognosis is poor. I continue to do range of motion on her limbs as much as I can. The doctor says it will help with contracted limbs and with muscle tone.
Avatar n tn He is confused and very tired and often loses concentration and I think he is struggling when we get into a complex conversation but from pretty much the day after the stroke his awareness has improved every day. He does not want to watch TV and I do not think he can read and seems to have some cognitive problems. The main problem is he cannot speak, but does laugh and occassionally and will whisper "YES" and "NO", but not on command.

Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements.
