Coping With A Recurring Stroke?
HellornMy father had a stroke. It’s been more than 1 week. The first time he experienced symptoms he was not rushed to the hospital directly but was stabbed with a needle in the finger. After that my father went to sleep. 1 week later my father’s condition improved from being able to eat by himself, walking alone, although he was a little weak. However, on the 8th day my father sat for about 1 hour because there were relatives and lack of knowledge in the family. uIn the morning my father experienced a decrease in body function.rnrnWhat to do?
Stroke is a term to describe impaired brain function due to lack of perfusion or oxygenated blood flow to the brain area. This perfusion disorder can occur due to inadequate flow, for example, due to blockage or low blood pressure (ischemic stroke), or due to bleeding due to ruptured blood vessels (hemorrhagic stroke). In both types of stroke, pricking the finger with a needle is not a medically recommended technique, because its effectiveness has not been recognized. Symptoms of a stroke, however mild, should be taken to the hospital until it is proven that the symptoms are not a stroke or until the symptoms improve and the possibility of a major stroke can be ruled out. In your father's case, it is not impossible that the first attack that your father felt was a minor stroke, namely a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) which could improve on its own, even though the finger was not pierced. However, TIA itself should be checked by a doctor to prevent a more severe stroke later. At this time we can only advise you to get your father checked as soon as possible, especially because symptoms of decreased body function have appeared. Here we attach an article about stroke. Hope it is useful.
