How To Deal With Numbness / Numbness In Stroke Sufferers?
assw wr wb, night. My father suffered a minor stroke 2 months ago. He has been able to walk / activities like normal again. But he still feels numb / numb on the right side. Can numbness / numbness disappear? If possible, how long will the healing process take? Is it safe to seek treatment at a traditional place, such as zone therapy or something?

Stroke is a disease in which brain cells experience cell death due to the absence of blood supply due to rupture of blood vessels or blockage of blood vessels to the brain.
A light stroke is known as a transient ischemic attack which has a shorter duration of attack and can disappear within a few minutes. Although it can indeed recover, if left unchecked, this light stroke can cause quite deadly dangers.
For numbness or numbness along with other complaints that may arise, such as weakness in the limbs or memory disturbances, a mild stroke usually occurs in a short time, which is not more than 48 hours. However, if until now you still feel numb, then you need to find the possible cause. Although you still have to control some of the risk factors for stroke that your father has, for example, such as:
Excessive body weight
High blood pressure (hypertension)
Unhealthy lifestyle such as smoking or rarely exercising
Meanwhile, some other causes of numbness or numbness are:
Symptoms of diabetes
Vitamin B deficiency
To be able to know more about the exact possibility, you should do a direct examination with a neurologist so that the best treatment can be done for your father.
Meanwhile, some suggestions that you can do are:
Get enough rest
Have your father's blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels checked to control the risk factors for stroke
Try to reduce your consumption of foods that are oily and fatty
Increase your intake of vegetables and fruits
Moderate but regular exercise. For example, like walking for at least 3-45 minutes 2-3 times a week
That is the information we can convey. May be useful
