Stroke victims singing

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke victims singing


Avatar n tn You can read about it on the internet, and it may or may not be good for your mom's situation, but it is supposed to help stroke victims become more alert, which can help with rehab efforts. My friend who is an OT said that not being consistent in responding to commands is not unusual, and many things can affect it. Sometimes the patient knows what you are commanding, and is trying, but just can't get the brain to do it.
Avatar f tn If I remember correctly, the ability to understand but not speak of write it specifically "expressive aphasia." It is considered a major cognitive finding in Neuro Trauma patients and is pretty common in coup contrecoup brain injuries. This is very specific to a lesion or lack of blood flow in Broca's area of the brain. I seem to remember that many stroke victims have expressive aphasia and one of the "work arounds" was to sing what you are trying to say.
Avatar n tn Some of what I have read here leads me to believe that a TIA is a stroke that totally reverses itself and all symptoms go away within 24 hrs. Other postings indicate that if symptoms continue or periodically return, then that is an indication that it was more than just a TIA or that there are continuing problems.
Avatar n tn I am experimenting with your brain Patrick. You do not know my Character. Exotic women yes,exotic drugs no. It means something different to everybody. No hostility intended. Bizzare,why thankyou for the compliment. I speak Ausralian,sorry if you do not understand. I was sobre at time of post. Occassionaly I get very,very wasted.(LSD and ibogaine,is that exotic enough) I think you need to travel a little further,then you may understand not bring any personal baggage.
Avatar n tn , where both eyes see a little different. I've had heart palpatations, stroke like symptoms (numbness in face, slurred speech). Clumsiness, falling, dropping things...all due to numbness. I've had head CT, MRI with contrast, EKGs, EEGs, Seizure monitoring, stress tests, blood work upon blood work, First it was stroke, then migraines, then MS, then seizures. It's anxiety. It's okay to make sure your body is "ok". But sometimes you can get addicted to tests.
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 f tn Not to mention that he was walking like Tim Conway on the old Carol Burnette show (the little old man taking tiny tiny steps). He also looks like he has had a stroke with one side drawn - so does that leave us with Tina Fey (love those videos) to run this country if elected??? mmmm......let me think about that. She's pretty smart, but .......
