Causes Stroke After Falling?
Excuse me, my doctor wants to ask, My grandmother fell a while ago and immediately suffered a stroke. Actually this is my grandmother’s second stroke, the first stroke about 3 years ago was still mild and healed within a day. But the stroke this time was longer and until my grandmother could not speak, it was difficult to eat so my grandmother liked not to eat. Any food that is eaten ends up vomiting, stomach does not want to accept. What I’m asking here is, why does my grandmother get a stroke after falling, and is there a relationship between a stroke and my grandmother who won’t eat and even vomits when I put food in?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
A history of stroke that he experienced 3 years ago, can be at risk of having a repeat attack, especially if the risk factors and causes of stroke are not controlled or normalized. If your grandmother is having a stroke right now after falling, then what actually happened is your grandmother had a stroke and then fell. When a stroke occurs, the body's muscles are unable to support all the burden on the patient's body. This is because, when there is a stroke, paralysis occurs in half of the patient's body, starting from the face, hands, feet become weak. This muscle weakness causes the muscles can not contract and weak, resulting in a fall. This finally gives an idea, as if your grandmother fell who eventually suffered a stroke.
In general, patients with a history of stroke, need to do routine evaluation and control to the neurologist or the treating doctor to help control the trigger factors for stroke, such as:
2. High blood pressure
3. Heart disease
4. Higher than normal blood cholesterol
Furthermore, when a stroke persists or the patient experiences a stroke, some accompanying complaints can be found, such as:
2. Difficulty swallowing
3. Weakness of facial muscles and aunt sideline
4. Weakness of the hand and foot muscles side
5. Impaired vision
6. Impaired awareness
7. Memory disorders
8. Miksi control disorders
10. Nausea or vomiting
Therefore, in patients with stroke, patients often feel confused, do not recognize family members, fall, nausea or vomiting, no appetite or look sad. So it is necessary for families who care for your grandmother to keep trying to meet the nutritional needs of food in accordance with the business / business that has been suggested by the treating doctor. Be careful when feeding, the risk of choking can cause shortness of patients with stroke.
However, you still need to discuss all of this directly with the neurologist who is treating your grandmother. Because, doctors who treat, better understand the clinical condition of your grandmother at this time. Discuss with your doctor and ask for input or advice from the treating doctor. Thus, the treatment undertaken can run well. So, after your grandmother's condition is better, it is hoped that your grandmother can return to eat comfortably.
