The Right Arm Feels Immune To Stroke Sufferers?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Stroke is a condition in which there is reduced or stopped blood flow to certain parts of the brain either caused by blockages or ruptures of blood vessels in that part of the brain. Symptoms that arise from a stroke depend on which part of the brain has the blood supply interrupted. Indeed, in general, there is numbness or paralysis in the locomotion, but it does not rule out other symptoms such as tingling or speech disturbances, impaired concentration and so on which really depend on which part of the brain is affected.
In addition, it should also be noted that there is a condition known as TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) or known as a mild stroke. In this condition, complaints that generally appear last a few minutes and can recover as before. However, this condition serves as a warning that there is already a disruption in the blood supply to the brain, which can lead to further, more severe stroke.
Brain cells or nerve cells are parts of the body that cannot regenerate, so if there has been damage, especially cells that have been dying for a long time, it is very unlikely that they will be able to recover as before. In stroke patients, the principle of treatment or management is to maximize the remaining function and prevent further cell death so that certain body functions can be maintained at a minimum so that the patient can carry out basic daily physical activities.
In your father's case where a CT scan of the head was done but the symptoms were not limb weakness. So what needs to be done now is to prevent worsening of the disease by controlling existing risk factors such as the presence or absence of diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), high blood fat and cholesterol, blood clotting disorders and so on. In addition, what is no less important is adopting a healthy lifestyle by maintaining a healthy diet and type of eating and exercising regularly. Consult with the doctor who treats your father whether or not the addition of certain drugs to control certain medical conditions. Thus the worsening of stroke can be prevented.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
