Stroke victims may regain weak arm use

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke victims may regain weak arm use


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 n tn That is to say as an example, if you bruised your arm and it took 1 month to heal, the same insult to the brain may take 20 months. The problem is, no one can really "see" the extent of the damage from a brain stroke. It sounds like this will be a long road for him as well as his family. Is there some hope for a quality of life if he survives? YES, there is always HOPE. His best chance for some level of recovery is with you and the rest of the family. He may need lots of rehab.
Avatar n tn Hi, my grandmother (82 year old) had an ischemic stroke on 3 May. The Dr said it was a massive stroke which affected her left hemisphere. She has just recently started opening her eyes but i dont think she sees us. Its almost been three weeks and there havent been many signs of improvement. She does however sqeeze our hands from time to time.
Avatar n tn After three days in the hospital and many medical tests, a PHO was found, and an MRI showed that it was indeed a stroke. One week after the stroke, I started having tingling in my right arm and leg. My right eye was constantly tearing, and I had headaches off and on. You have no idea how happy I was to discover this message board and realize that I was not alone. I was amazed that many of you had the same symptoms as I have.

Avatar n tn But other problems may very well not be. To those of you who may be victims of a catch phrase, or at least feel you are, and who feel disenchanted, frustrated, and tired of being ill, my heart goes out to you. Anyone who has dealt with this should certainly sympathize and not attack. Good luck to you all.
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 show her the law suits. altho those just point out the stroke victims mainly. My fiance actually brought up that maybe I needed to go see a therapist because I wasn't the same as what I used to be. I actually ended up slapping him across the face when he got home from his bachelor party and then crying hysterically because I thought he was leaving me for good when his best man took him to his house for the night.
Avatar n tn Along with this I just started (two weeks ago) right Iliac Crest pain. Not sure what to do about that. I did use my own bone for this surgery. The hip pain is just another in the whole thing. Why has it started after about 4 months? I am a smoker but am on Wellbutrin to quit ad my Neuro says this may help. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I think I did too much though cause today my arm near my arm pit is really sore (it feels like sore muscles) and my neck muscle is sore too. It has been 10 days since my shot. The tingling and numbness has mostly gone away except in my feet now it's just muscle soreness....
Avatar n tn and affected me phsyically and emotionally and i couldnt eat for good 5-7 days i was literally forced to swallow things down and i had the heart scan over there they said my heart is normal and was diagnosed with mvp.. i remember my left arm and legg would go numb and weak..and i felt like i couldnt pick up or lift anything coz it would hurt my heart.. but eventually i got better.. then this head problem came..
Avatar f tn The release of potential allergens like nickel, chromium or cobalt depends on composition, surface modification and chemical or physical corrosion factors. Low pH and low oxygenation of adjacent tissue may influence metallic surface – even leading to titanium release in surrounding tissue [24].
Avatar m tn We conclude that large doses of lipoic acid displace sulfhydryls from binding sites, resulting in depletion of serum cysteine, but also pose a methylation burden with severe depletion of liver S-adenosylmethionine and massive release of S-adenosylhomocysteine.
Avatar n tn He had a hunch it may help with my depression as well... I am so happy I was able to be patient. With the encouragement of family and friends I made it through the initial onset of the side effects and they've subsided. My headaches are minimal and my depression is under control and I haven't been able to say that in 3 years! I too have struggled with my weight due to all of the anti-depressants I've been on and off, and on again.... but this combination works for me.
Avatar n tn There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much. 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.
Avatar n tn I Have been diagnosed with BTT for about 10years now my mum has it and so does 1 of my sisters and brother but they are fine. My mother has to always go into hospital cause her Hemoglobin goes down to 4.8 and they give her a blood transfusions then shes ok for a few months and it starts again. the docs say theres nothing we can do but keep transfusing her.
Avatar n tn If you have a temporal lobe seizure, your phantosmia may be brief and you may lose consciousness or have other symptoms of epilepsy. The combination of phantosmia and olfactory delusions is often due to a psychiatric illness, such as depression or schizophrenia. Phantosmia and olfactory delusions may also occur in people with Alzheimer's disease. Although rare, phantosmia can occur as part of the symptoms that you may experience before a migraine headache.
Avatar n tn they thought that i may be having a mild stroke ( T.I.A. ) the results were negative and the doctor found me to be in excellent health. after this i changed my dieting habbits and stayed away from all raw sugar products including cokes and tea. i then had no problems. i am now on a flight crew with the u.s.a.f. and i started drinking lots of cokes daily again because i do love them so much.
Avatar n tn I start masturbated since I m 19 and usually use porn as a form of visual stimiulation. I have observed that I have lost the ability to maintain erect during intercource or I only get weak erection. My question is: does masturbation in association with porn will "exhaust" my interest towards sex and create a negative impact on my ability to get aroused in real sex? I m worried cause I think I m still young to have physical cause for ED. Any thought?
Avatar n tn In May I began to have dizzy spells which coincided with a sore throat and earache, which cleared up on their own. However, dizziness and fatigue continued for several weeks. The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue.
Avatar n tn I feel that these tablets should carry clearer warnings about the dangers of long term use / overuse. Being a cynical sod it may well be that profit will dictate. In Britain alone I have a feeling that addiction to painkillers like N+ is a much bigger problem than any of us are aware of !!!
Avatar m tn I may or may not have similar condition. I have central serous retinopathy in one eye, but a series of smaller "spots" with same pathology - they appear when I blink fast, or look at computer screen then look away. Been to eye hospital and told nothing wrong after slit exam (though no flourscene scan). It's difficult to tell, but I reckon I have 8 to 10 of these small light sensetive areas.
