Treatment Of Vertigo Until Walking Difficult At The Age Of 57 Years?
Good morning, my mother aged 57 years initially often vertigo. Then it is difficult to walk and often wet the bed now it is difficult to walk and move the body even difficult to talk. Does it hurt a stroke? Or another illness. Thank you.
Stroke is a condition of partial paralysis caused by lack of oxygen in the brain, both due to a blockage in the blood vessels of the brain and brain blood vessel rupture. Stroke can cause symptoms in the form of a lame body, slurred speech, mouth opening and asymmetrical face, numbness or numbness, severe headache, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, double vision, impaired balance, and loss of consciousness or fainting.
The examination carried out by the doctor can include history, physical examination and neurological examination, as well as supporting examinations if needed such as CT scans, MRI, blood tests, heart records. While the handling of stroke will be adjusted to the patient's condition including coping with emergencies if there are, drugs to treat certain diseases or risk factors that cause stroke, surgery if necessary, and recovery with rehabilitation, physiotherapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy if needed.
Did your mother have a history of certain diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, high cholesterol? For your mother's condition that is difficult to walk and talk, I suggest that you take your mother to a neurologist directly so that further tests can be done to determine the cause whether due to stroke or other conditions such as head injuries, brain tumors, meningitis, encephalitis, migraines, and imbalances of calcium and glucose in the body. With the examination, the doctor can conclude the condition of your mama and provide the most appropriate treatment plan for your mama.
Hope it helps you,
