Hello Vicky, Thank you for the question.
Stroke is a condition of disruption of blood flow in the blood vessels of the brain that can be caused by blockage of blood vessels (ischemic stroke) or rupture of blood vessels (hemorrhagic stroke). Disorders of the bloodstream can cause brain function disorders. Some of the symptoms that can be experienced by stroke sufferers are weakness in one side of the body, asymmetrical face, slurred speech, tingling or numbness in the limbs, vision problems, headaches, dizziness, decreased consciousness.
Did your mother have high blood pressure / hypertension before? High blood pressure that occurs with stroke can occur because it had previously experienced high blood pressure. In addition, high blood pressure can also occur in the body's response when there is an interruption in blood flow in the brain. This response is needed to maintain blood flow in other parts. Therefore, a decrease in blood pressure in patients who have had a stroke must be done carefully and closely monitored so as not to cause other complications. The doctor will not give drugs aggressively to reduce blood pressure when the sufferer has just had a stroke even in some cases, it may delay the administration of blood pressure-lowering drugs. The neurologist will provide treatment that suits your mother's condition. You should not give blood pressure-lowering drugs yourself without the advice of a neurologist who treats your mother. Please discuss with the neurologist who treats your mother about further treatment for your mother.
I hope this helps.
