Now it is still in the control stage with the doctor by suggesting to take some medicine, but now if you take the medicine, it feels dizzy. Asking for help, what should we do so that he will soon remember everything well. Previously we thank you
Hello Risma, Thank you for the question.
Stroke is a condition of disruption of blood flow in one area of the brain that can cause brain function loss. This condition can be caused by a blockage of blood vessels (ischemic stroke) or rupture of blood vessels (hemorrhagic stroke). Symptoms that can be caused by this condition are:
weakness or paralysis of the limbs difficulty speaking / pelo the face looks asymmetrical tingling or numbness in the limbs headache vertigo nausea and vomiting difficult swallowing decreased awareness of memory loss what symptoms experienced by the patient depends on which part of the brain is disturbed because each area of the brain has certain function. If this condition is not treated immediately or occurs over a large area, the impact is that symptoms may persist. It may be that the missing symptoms that occur in your uncle is because the area of the brain in charge of storing memories has a more severe disorder so that the memories have not returned. However, as mentioned before, these symptoms may persist. What your family can do is to help your uncle to remember the surrounding environment, for example by bringing your uncle to a familiar or preferred place. In addition, make it your habit to always be in the environment of people he knows. The recovery process for stroke sufferers can take a long time and therefore, the family must remain optimistic and be patient in supporting your uncle's treatment. The most important thing is that your uncle can continue to do his daily activities independently. Please advise your uncle to always take medicine according to the doctor's recommendations and check himself regularly according to the examination schedule.
I hope this helps.
