Stroke victims and anger

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke victims and anger


Avatar f tn Yes, anger is a common problem in stroke victims. It is not caused by depression, pre se, but by actual brain damage. As a 49-year-old stroke victim myself , I have been very irritable since my right-brain stoke 6 months ago. If you want to know what it's like for a stroke victim, imagine that you're getting less than half the sleep you are now--night after night. How you do think you'd feel and function?
Avatar n tn I'm afraid that he wont be able to ever move his fingers again. Do anyone out there seen stroke victims move their finger and open and close them after 19 months? I also heard that what ever you get back after 2 years is what your left with? We got the Saeboflex for the hand but no results yet on any finger movements. Please tell me what might happen in the next 6 months.
Avatar f tn I have memory issues and anger issues, as well as fatigue. I certainly am not the person I was pre-stroke. I had a lot of therapy for several months and looking back, I regained MUCH control in those months. I have relearned a good part of what the left side of me does. Now that you have this overview, let me say I have good days and bad days. I can walk (and do, two miles a day). I am back at work, 75% of my former schedule. I live alone...

1388999 tn?1370046414 And some of the problems I did address have been misguided by my own ignorance and or anger. I know that I am going to be able to be a better husband to my wife if she choses to stay. I am learning to address all of my problems, and hit them right between the eyes...not dodging anything. I am also learning my short comings when it comes to my relationship. There have been things I should have been doing for years, that I never even thought of.
Avatar n tn Hello!! Well, I'm surprised you didn't see the anger(volatility) much sooner. That is something many of us have experienced first hand, and is one of the many wonderful(NOT) side effects of oxycodone, and opiates in general. Hell i remember if someone even looked at me funny at the grocery store, i was ready to clobber them; and truth is they were probably just going to say hi. As far as other side effects, well of course there is the liver which you mentioned and the kidneys.
1323357 tn?1274826939 an increase of adrenaline and decrease of dopamine - and this feeling of depersonalistion and derealisation is a result. You are not going insane and this will rebalance itself. What makes it persist is that usually a person does not know what it is and so worries/creates more stress this creates a self-perpetuating cycle.

572651 tn?1531002957 I had been getting followed and warned about possible stroke and losing my vision. I try not to dwell on my illness and at least do my business. I just cannot do it like I used to. And it takes so well to recuperate compared to the past. I am still being watched for possible neurological cancer. So far the Devic's test has been normal--yeah! I went to a celebration and charitable function at the church that evening.
Avatar f tn They need to understand that you've been through something pretty traumatic and to give you space, and you have to really try and remember they just care about you and are trying to help. Deep breaths and pausing before speaking sometimes help me, but not always :-) Wish you luck and a speedy recovery.
Avatar n tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried message therapy, it helps but only for a short period. And I have tried changing my pillows on my bed and sleeping in different positions and nothing seems to help for long term. What can I do?
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.

Avatar n tn My hubby and I LOVE camping and are aware of ticks and take precautions. But last year we came home from a camping trip noticed behind my knee a small bump that felt like a hard spot in the middle. Thinking of ticks (we've had them before but they were really big and easily seen) he looked at it for me and using tweezers pulled a tiny piece of skin off my leg. He said he thought it was a sliver of wood from the picnic table.
519226 tn?1378994921 She talks about people in a nasty manner. She lies and when you call her on it, she denies it. She starts trouble with me and my siblings. My brother hasn't had anything to do with her in the last several years. No one wants to be around her because she is so nasty. She always has to put people down, and it seems she is extremely jealous of me.
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Welcome and we're so very happy you found us. Please make yourself at home in Part 31 ...
Avatar n tn It was a nightmare just getting the doctor to understand the problem and it took a trip to the hospital due to fear of a stroke when my arm and head were tingling and feeling numb to finally convey that it was serious. The hospital was the worst when I had to convince at least 5 different people that it wasn't stress, etc. I was extremely weak in the muscles in my arms and legs and dizzy and couldn't function for even half a day work.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tram Warriors! Part 60. Wow. Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
Avatar n tn Its just a shame that little 12 year old KARA (or her parents) and little DARCY aged 11 (or his parents) had not read posts from other victims. Because Kara and Darcy would then still be alive. So don't knock my posts. They are needed by anyone (even if it is a SMALL MINORITY) that needs to read them. If you don't, then thats OK. But I will, if you don't mind, continue to post for THEM. For THEIR children. There are many more children than the two I have named.
429155 tn?1205676864 I went to my GP complaning of no sense of smell, saw a surgeon and surgery was recomended, I was given a prescription for Prednisone, a steroid, this gave me some sense of smell, and here's the but, I had the operation and still could not smell, so more Prednisone, well the upshot is that the steroids have caused my Osteo-Necrosis, this is when the heads of the long bones die, so have now had core decompression on one hip and the other totally replaced. Oxycontin.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
Avatar n tn Spinal fluid. Protein. Via lumbar puncture. Tis how Guillain Barre Syndrome is diagnosed. There is NO other way. Suppose old Disraeli was correct in his assertation that Ignorance never settles a question? Viruses don't show up on Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Or should it be, Magnetic Resonance Imaging cannot illuminate a virus with or without Gadolinium? And in the future, don't use caps. Unless, of course, you enjoy yelling at people. Amy? Please rest. Viral infections detest rest.
544292 tn?1268886268 Sounds too good to be true. (AND IT IS!) The fact is, there's already pain killers here in the house and I'm not going to take any of those either. I'm not taking anything. I'm going to ice it, lay down, rest and realize that my body has been thru a heelllla fight and it just needs a break, a breath. A moment. A freakity frackity day off. I've been in a tough battle for 21 solid cold turkey days and before that; the taper AKA "Let the pills run out....
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?
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Friends! Welcome all Tramadol warriors. We're all very glad to see you. Please come in and share.
217229 tn?1192766004 I visited w Bush's victims and found it worse than even I imagined. Too many, too much. Against the protestations of my docs, I began to work w some of the worst of the mental cases - by choice. Most of those folks encounter their worst terror late at night. That is compatable w my severe sleep apnea which never seems to allow sleep until 4:00 AM or later. I have always been a creature of the night. So I'd show up about 7:30 PM and work till about 4:00 AM. It's pitiful.
Avatar f tn ~ Yes, I am the victim. But I work with children and adolescents that are victims of the worst kind of neglect and mistreatment. Children who have no homes, no families, who are wards of the state because their parents are in jail or are otherwise incapable of caring for their children.
Avatar n tn Not just accept what others deem to be insignificant and not worth researching. What might sound like complaining is really frustration and anger at the lack if information available. That's why were here...trying to gather information. Navy100 posted this link: Has anyone talk with their Urologist about this procedure? I will forward to mine and report back.
