Avatar m tn I was just wondering how much support is out there for the younger stroke victims maybe in the format of groups or chatrooms or something.
Avatar n tn I saw a news clip about a motorized elbow brace that helps stroke victims regain much of their mobility. They mentioned a study at M I T claiming a 23% improvement in 9 weeks. There was a lady who went from 25% arm function to 75%. There was no mention on the availibility of this item nor how to get one. I would like to find one of these as possibly a family member who recently suffered a stroke may benefit greatly from such an item.

156741 tn?1212748547 It helps to know that I'm not alone in this battle thanks for your support. I have a Dr. appt. w my GYNO March the 4th and hopefully will have a test done in the meantime just wait. I've sticked with diet food no grease at all and that has helped to ease the sympthoms of blotted stomach.

I am doing well, but I cannot keep from drinking all the time. Things have been stressful at home lately--by boyfriend's parents have moved in for two weeks. They are so very nice, but our home is very small and the space issue really gets to me. Our town is small and there is no where to go.

Avatar n tn I enjoy reading that research is leading to new breakthroughs to help victims of stroke. I have also read that although most recovery for stroke patients is seen within the first 6 months, that patients may recover for YEARS after stroke.

Researchers are also making breakthroughs to assist in the treatment of aphasis, dysphagia, paralysis etc.

Avatar n tn We are hoping to find some information or direction. Our mom, Suzanne, who is 71 had a stroke on the back of her head, on the brain stem on May 23rd 2008. All of her memory and the part of her brain that makes her who she is, is all there. Thank god! Suzanne was diagnosed with a stroke 7 1/2 hours after being rushed to the emergency room. My family and I found this a bit odd since she had every symptom of having a stroke.
