Dry Mouth Accompanied By Hands To Feet Often Tingling With A History Of Stroke?
Hello, my father had experienced symptoms of stroke at the end of 2017. Could not walk, weak in the left side of the body but not until (sorry) his face was not symmetrical after being treated continuously thank God now can walk even though still not like a normal person in general. At this time what my father felt was that the left strokes that left the tingling from the feet to the hands and felt heavy. And I want to ask if his dry mouth had a strawberry effect? Also, can my father walk like before? Like normal people in general, because my father looks very sad because the way like that (not normal) Thank you very much
Hi Meri Tri, thank you for asking.
Stroke is a condition of nerve function deficits due to blockage or bleeding in the blood vessels of the brain. Stroke is divided into ischemic stroke (blockage) and bleeding stroke. Generally (though not always) bleeding strokes are more severe and fatal compared to ischemic strokes. Risk factors and causes of stroke include uncontrolled hypertension, advanced diabetes, high cholesterol, heavy smokers, consumption of certain drugs, or brain tumors. Stroke is a disease that is very individual, meaning that the severity of the attack and the symptoms of stroke after each person is very different. A person can recover almost completely, with the recovery of most of the nerve and muscle function. On the other hand, other people can have very severe sequelae, such as persistent paralysis so they must continue to lie in bed.
The sequelae experienced by your father is one of the many types of sequelae of a stroke. Stroke symptoms depend on the location of the affected brain. Residual symptoms can be weakness or paralysis of the limbs, slurred, difficult to form words or difficult to understand words, loss of control over the urinary tract and chapter, tingling and so on. Try to get you to consult with a medical rehabilitation specialist. The doctor will prescribe the best physiotherapy method. You can also ask your doctor to teach you some forms of physiotherapy that are easy to do at home. Physiotherapy, of course, must be done routinely and with high dedication. The family must unite to support your father. When your father begins to lose enthusiasm, invite your father to keep trying, give attention, and invite to do things fun. Generally physiotherapy will be able to provide improvement even though it may not be one hundred percent cured.
The most important thing is to guard against repeated attacks. A recurring stroke will have a worse severity and a smaller safety level. Invite and remind your father to maintain blood sugar and tenseness, invite your father to exercise lightly at least 3-4 times a week, stop smoking when smoking, stop caffeine and alcohol, multiply eating vegetable protein, seeds, nuts, vegetables, fruits and lean meat.
Hopefully this answer can help and hopefully your father can return to normal activities soon. Keep encouraging your father separately. Regards.
