Why Is It Hard To Express Words After Having A Mild Stroke?
morning. I want to ask my mother to experience a mild receipt after leaving the hospital. I can still think what she is about to say, but just recently my mother found it difficult to express what she wanted to say. why is that related to the receipt he experienced? Thank you in advance.
Hello Chrixtian Lesmana,
Aphasia is difficulty in speaking, divided into difficulty in understanding other people's words or difficulty in expressing what is being said or a combination of both. Aphasia is a symptom of stroke. Stroke occurs when there is a disruption in blood circulation in the brain, it can be caused by a blockage in a blood vessel or rupture of a blood vessel. When it comes to areas that regulate human speech, aphasia can emerge.
Apart from stroke, aphasia can also occur in other disorders such as brain tumors, brain infections, head injuries, or dementia. The diagnosis can be made based on the history of the disease, clinical symptoms, physical examination, and supporting examinations such as CT-scan or MRI. Handling aphasia in stroke patients is through speech therapy which must be routinely carried out. Indeed, the process is long and very dependent on how large the area of the brain that is damaged. Some patients experience persistent aphasia.
At home, there are several things you can do to help your mother overcome this aphasia:
Speak with patients clearly and more slowly Use tools such as blackboards or drawings to communicate Provide encouragement and mental support for sufferers Give praise when your mother succeeds in conveying messages through words Give attention when patients try to convey their message Continue to practice whenever there is opportunity Do a periodic evaluation to the doctor who treats your mother when having a stroke. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
