The Right Hand Is Numb And It Is Not Clear Whether To Stroke?
Hello. I want to ask, my father suddenly experienced symptoms of his right hand and his speech was a little unclear. And already 2 days his hands are still worried. Does it include mild stroke symptoms? And if it is a mild stroke, can it be cured as it was when only with medication on the road? Thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically you need to know in advance that the term mild stroke refers more to TIA (transient ischemic attack), meaning that the neurological symptoms experienced (matirasa, paralysis, speech disorders, etc.) only occur temporarily and found no signs brain damage (infarction) from brain MRI examination. Therefore, the diagnosis of TIA or mild stroke must be confirmed by MRI first (especially because the symptoms are still occurring) and we cannot determine whether your father's symptoms include only TIA or mild stroke just from your story. if after 2 days the symptoms have not disappeared, chances are that your father has been said to have had a stroke rather than a mild stroke again.
You should immediately bring your father to a neurologist for further examination. A thorough check should be done on your father to look for risk factors for the stroke he experienced (for example high blood pressure, diabetes, heart rhythm disorders, heart valve disorders, blockages in blood vessels in the neck, etc.), and these risk factors must also be managed immediately so that not until a stroke occurs again (people who have had a stroke have a high risk of having a recurring stroke).
If your father experiences worsening symptoms or there are additional neurological symptoms that suddenly appear, immediately take your father to the hospital because of the possibility of your father having a recurring stroke. If immediately taken to the hospital during an attack, the process of damage to the brain can still be repaired and prevented from becoming more widespread (so that the symptoms of neurological deficits experienced may still recover). If left unchecked, the damaged brain cannot be repaired anymore and the symptoms of neurological deficits will be permanent.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
