1285653 tn?1288362229 I can understand your worrying concerns about post-stroke recovery. Unfortunately, rehabilitation is the only effective way to help the patient regain function to the possible extent and prevent from permanent losses. If rehabilitation program is appropriately instituted, most of the stroke patients can regain maximum functions with appropriate therapy, training and support services.
Avatar n tn How long does it usually take for the confusion to go away, and will it go away completely eventually. Her doctor told us weeks ago that he expects a full recovery, but he hasn't seen her or consulted with us since she's been in rehab and one day she is so clear and talking about everything, and the next day she doesn't even seem to recognize us. Is this normal during the healing process?
Avatar f tn I've just added my lengthy timeline of symptoms in my journal. I'm really starting to think that I have MS. It's funny but back in 2000 with my back problem the physical therapist and neurologist kept double checking my records each time to confirm that the reason was because of my back and not something else. The Neuro actually said he wanted another MRI to rule things out before moving to another diagnosis. MRI showed more L5/S1 problems so another surgery. But problems never resolved.
Avatar f tn It would be great if you could tell us anything regarding his state and possible treatments or recovery time. Thank you for your time. ---- Here's a general overview of his condition from a report--- He is "non diabetic, non smoker, hypertensive, had a hemorrhagic stroke (pontine hemorrhage) on March 23, 2009. At that time he was unconscious. He was treated conservatively in ICU and HDU. Now patient is conscious, oriented but emotionally labile. His motor power is 2-3, tone increased.
Avatar n tn does anyone know what the recovery time is for this type of stroke and the prognosis? we have done alot of praying and the doctors can't tell us anything. they want us to give up on her and place her in long term care...but we plan to bring her home and give her the love and attention she needs along with therapy...
Avatar n tn Hi Brenda, I would say never! I am dealing with the same question. I had SSHL in November. Left ear completely deaf. I was told there was a minimal chance of any recovery. I saw numerous ENT's. The recovery timeframe I heard differed with each doctor & seemed to be based on their personal experience with the few SSHL patients they had cared for. Most people seem to think there is a primary recovery time & a longer term recover time.
Avatar n tn Any thoughts on my recovery timeline. What damage to the part of the brain causes these symptoms? Is it the PICA region? What are the risk of a further stroke?

Avatar m tn But i was supplied with bandages, and given a full timeline of how things should progress with recovery, with an estimate of a "full/partial recovery" in upwards of 4-6 weeks, sometimes up to 3 times longer depending on other factors because it's now a chronic thing. The biggest problem is this, I basically am responsible for taking care of the entire household, work is a non-issue at this point, so not worried about that.
159619 tn?1538184537 I really feel best when I maintain a rate more in line with 85% of my max, how do you feel about this? Also, is there a timeline when these tests should be repeated to check one's cardiac health?
Avatar f tn I have not tried the prescription medication only OTC. I also was wondering what the timeline looks like. By that I mean from the time you first went to your doctor with this problem till you completed all the testing needed, how long was that process? I'm aware that this will take time and patience but after 14 years of this I am ready for an end. Is there a standard in the testing, are some tests mandatory and other optional?
1548028 tn?1324616046 Checked into hospital because he couldn't walt, talk or urinate and suggested Prozac for depression and we were sent home. Two days later thought he was having a stroke and the dr. sure knew there was something wrong then. Spent 15 days in hospital getting steroid treatment and 2 months with rehab. We were told ADEM/transverse demylination. Now 16 months later we got better than the beginning but damage remained and some symptoms have worsened.
Avatar f tn He wouldn't even give me the chance to explain I wasn't asking for narcotics and wasn't going to ask for a prescription, I was just scared that I'd have to be in wheelchair permanately and by this time my left arm was numb as well, m y pulse 141 and short of breath, which are symtpoms of heart attack/stroke or from a panick attack, for which he wouldn't treat me.
438383 tn?1204667562 If you are unable to get a CD of the MRI of your brain, the Specialist may request that you have another. Then you will be required to give a FULL History and this is where a timeline can help a whole lot, both for you in that you don't have to try to remember everything while sitting in the office and that he has something to look at that is clearly showing your past history. Then the MS Specialist will do a full in-office examination.
Avatar n tn Hi, Chris! Welcome to the forum! I'm glad you found us, and it seems that, although your neurologist appears to be taking you lightly and examining his cell phone more carefully than you, he has ordered great testing for you. Many of us on the forum would give our left pinkies for some of the tests your doc has ordered in your first three weeks! (The right pinkies are so much more useful!) I'm sorry you suffered the spinal tap headache! How miserable!
Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?
Avatar f tn At this stage my employer Occ Health wanted to recommend me for ill-health retirement as they could see that any recovery was extremely slow, and they had no end timeline for recovery and return to work. I received notice from 1 June, to be extended whilst Pensions dept did their investigations via independent health company.
Avatar m tn Can somebody please help me and give me an idea of what i can expect the next 5 days??? just a small timeline of when things will get better will help. Does the Thomas recipe work?? please any help will be appreciated. I have a family and I am scared to death.
Avatar f tn Are they lasting for weeks, then followed by at least one month's recovery, only to re-appear again? You definitely show some concerning white matter lesions in your brain. Was your MRI done with and without contrast dye? Has an MRI been done of your spine? All of these questions help those of us with MS, to try and figure out what is going on with your body. I apologize for asking so many questions.

Avatar m tn how high a dose and your age will foctor in it is not so much the severity of the withdrawal but the long recovery time that makes this drug hard to just dont realize just what this drug has been doing to you until your off of it.....also it can take 3 days to feel the drop in dose because methadone has a long 1/2 life....just know there is life after methadone and getting off it will be one of the best decisions of your life...
231441 tn?1333896366 I am a serious triathlete in my leisure time, though I work full-time in an office job. Slower recovery from training now than before. Often sore muscles - compared to my team mates who are doing the same training. Get major muscle cramping - particularly with swimming, often occurs after not during training. I am famous for bumping into and dropping things. :} Hands get numb - but I put that down to nerve compression from time on bike. Strange tickling sensations on head and body.
Avatar f tn not sure about that either. not stroke but little stuff. I have called 4 attorneys who deal with Paxil lawsuits against glaxo smith-kline, manufacturer. waiting to hear back. I am furious times 10 with my psychiatrist who left all of this out and wh/ i went to see him 2 weeks ago played kinda dumb about the whole thing. he is bright and informed. i think he was probably scared I'd sue him. even the emergency room reluctant to acknowledge.
Avatar n tn I can feel pain in the arms, legs and feet but much less then before. TIA's and stroke ruled out. No cancer.
Avatar f tn so i'll hold on to some hope. today i started feeling a burning sensation, seems like there are steps in the recovery hopefully its recovering.
230625 tn?1216764664 I have not had the time to post my timeline of symptoms yet, but I have been experiencing much of what you are describing. My muscle problems change in type depending on how fatigued I am. Most of the time it starts with just a general soreness and overworked feeling in the muscles. I usually start feeling too weak to hold my hairdryer up or hold my kids for long periods of time.
385668 tn?1301797480 I am so scared that I will stroke out! I cant imagine NOT going through with this as I definately need the surgery.
