Shortness Of Breath And Hot Hands During Light Strokes?
Hello, warahmatullahi wabarakatuh nHello, I want to ask a question nSo on June 8, 2018 my father was hospitalized due to hypertension, his body felt weak and had fireflies. Doctors predict that they will have a mild stroke. After 4 days of hospitalization, the blood pressure and cholesterol were normal and we took them home. After being taken for several days, my father’s hand was numb and hot. Then the chest felt tight, it was difficult to breathe, the word was not hollow. Then we took it again to the hospital, then we were given oxygen. My father is very difficult for Bernafs. After getting better, we went back home. N nNow my father is undergoing physiotherapy 3 times a week, taking hypertension medication (amlodipine besylate 10mg) and taking a warm shower every morning and evening. Often also every morning between 8-9 hours to bask in the sun. nBut now what I complain about is that the hands feel hot and numb, then the contact to the chest feels tight. If compressed with warm water, a little relieved, and will pass wind. NWe have X-rays of the lungs, the results are clean lungs. It’s already ecg and the doctor said the results were good. NAfter the ct scan (daily brain), there was no visible bleeding. N I thought about how the treatment was for my father, because I was very sorry to see my father felt tight and his hands were hot. N dietary restrictions for my father? n
Stroke occurs due to blockage of brain blood vessels or broken blood vessels. The symptoms of a stroke correspond to the part of the brain affected. In your father, the part of the brain that moves the right hand and right leg is affected, causing symptoms of paralysis of one side of the limb.
After a stroke, the symptoms do not usually go away immediately. Physiotherapy or exercise is needed to restore muscle strength and help regenerate nerves. In this repair process, muscle pain, tingling, or other complaints may occur. If the complaint is very disturbing, for example, being unable to sleep, pain throughout the day or interfering with exercise, you should consult a doctor.
Regarding the tightness experienced, it needs to be examined further. Shortness of breath can occur due to problems with breathing, heart problems, brain problems, or other things that feel like tightness, such as pain coming from the stomach. Dyspepsia or stomach ulcers can also cause a feeling of fullness in the stomach so that it feels like tightness.
Given that currently there are examinations both CT scan, EKG and X-rays and the tightness is not improving, it is better for your father to go back to the doctor for further review.
The prohibition to eat depends on the cause of the stroke. If it is caused by hypertension, then of course you must have a low salt diet so that blood pressure is maintained. To avoid blockage of blood vessels due to cholesterol, limit fatty foods. If you have diabetes, the regulation must be even tighter to maintain blood sugar levels. In addition to limiting sugary foods, limit foods that are high in fat. A complete diet arrangement according to your father's condition can be done by a nutrition specialist. Currently, your father should routinely go to a specialist in internal medicine to control blood pressure so that stroke does not occur again.
