Grandmother is 80 years old. She was ill for a long time with hypertensive illness (pressure zashalilovalo 240 to 120). in 45 years, stayed on the group. There were 3 strokes with a frequency of exactly 1 year last occurred 2 years ago. the first two strokes suffered stubbornly. After discharge from the hospital it was possible to say workable. And she did not go far and she did some work around the house. But after 3 strokes (paralyzed right), speech was lost, very poorly owned hands. He only walks around the house. The point of my question is: Truth on the background of treatment, the pressure initially was 120, 140 to 80. Now it keeps 150-160 at 80.90 sometimes rises to 190 per 100. After 3 stroke, she complained of numbness of the right side. The doctor told us nothing about this. I recently complained of headaches. Now they have passed, but the whole right side has begun to ache (and it hurts only when it moves, for example, at night when it does not hurt, there are edemas of both feet.) I would like to know whether it is necessary to sound an alarm, so that another stroke does not happen, or the consequences of old sores . Thank you.

Trepanation was performed.21 a day in the hospital lay. said the situation is going better than they expected. Here has passed one and a half months. we do gymnastics massage we drink tablets which the doctor has registered. He gets up walking with the help, and sometimes he tries (he really wants to recover sooner) hand does not move much only flexes a little the hand moves on himself and slightly back. the last time he starts to hurt his hand when doing gymnastics, he lies does not hurt, lying down raise his hand does not hurt, it is worth him sitting up to raise his hand-a sharp pain throughout the hand.express this just do a normal phenomenon, why is this happening? and why the leg does not hurt but the arm hurts?

In some cases, after a stroke, as a resultlesions of certain areas of the brain, there may be a violation of innervation of these or other muscle groups, these disorders can lead not only to paralysis, but also to the onset of pain, including after a while, after a stroke. Such pain can also be caused by a pathological contraction of paralyzed muscles. It is necessary to re-pass the examination of the neurologist, perhaps in the treatment scheme will need to make adjustments.

I am 50 years old.A year ago I suffered an ischemic stroke, but I still do not have the numbness of the right side. On the fingers of the right, legs and hands are shivers, and the right side and leg-as if someone squeezes. The first half of the year did massage on my leg, and now I constantly rub my leg and hand, but it's useless. Will this state endure or is it forever? Sometimes there is a slight dizziness.
