  1. Hi all, Just wondering if this is post stroke related. 3 months since my stroke and the right side has been the side that was hurt but past three days my left foot and ankle have caused spasticity. I’ll be walking fine then all of a sudden it is somewhat painful and can’t bend my foot. I haven’t injured that I know of either. Has anyone had other side do this to them? Thanks Patty

    I can’t thank you all enough, I have been reading them over and over and everyone is so caring and helpful. I’m taking on a new attitude of positivity and going to take good care of me and rest when I need to but get out there and live too and enjoy life as best as I can. Thanking my lucky stars I found this group! Thank you all again! Patty

    Hi Mike, Thank you very much. I’m glad your out of wheelchair and using a cane, that had to be very scary and difficult for you. My primary Dr. has been the best help and after the holidays I do plan to ask her for a good therapist to talk to, I thought I’d try this first and see if it helps me just talking about it to others that understand. I bought a new swimsuit and joined my local health club to do water aerobics to start with. I’m trying some days are better than others. Thank you again!
  4. Hi, thank you for listening. I had a stroke in October of this year, I’m 55 yrs old. They told me I had 7 clots in my brain but also how lucky I am. I was in the hospital for five days and went home. I did therapy but soon released. I’m able to walk and do for myself even though my right side is numb and my brain seems frazzled but here’s what is so frustrating and scary. I thought I had fatigue because all I wanted to do was sleep. I cried, I was angry at the world and just felt different. I had no idea what was wrong until I contacted my Dr. she put me on anti depressant and it did help but not 100%. No one told me this might happen until after it happened. Last Wednesday I went to the ER with stroke symptoms. I had a bad headache, blurry vision in right eye, the numbness I had was lots worse and still is, my right head, eye, lips and in my right hand and fingers it’s very painful, burning, tingling like feelings. Thankfully I didn’t have a stroke, they said it’s due to the first stroke and sent me home. My crying and anger is back along with more intense numbness and frazzled brain and walking is off but not sure if it’s leg or blurry eye causing this. I’m praying I don’t tell someone in my family off. Prior to stroke I never had these feelings, I’m the happy, smiling, get along with everyone person. I asked the nurse at my Neuros office if I can get in earlier than 1-22-20 she laughed and said your lucky your got in then. Unbelievable. I realize so many in this group have it lots worse than me and I feel for all of you and pray for all stroke victims now all the time. My point here is it seems as though the world could care less about what we’ve been through and what to expect and how to get help when needed and where. I’m so thankful I found this group and I’m going to read and learn as much as I can. Thank you, Patty
