I had my tia/Stoke just before Christmas and since then I have been reading the forum for encouragement and wanted to thank all of the people who have shared there experiences.
My left brain was affected and mobility temporarily on my right side arm and leg.
The good news is that I i look like iv recovered despite still being in pain and suffering from the typical pins and needles, fatigue and sensitively issues still on my right side.
The fear of the next stroke still haunts daily
Realising that it’s a brain injury that can slowly heal, I stopped smoking and started a mixture of alternative healing techniques.
Daily sauna/ swimmig/ walking in the pool and weekly acupuncture have taken the edge off the depression and are a great distraction from the discomfort.
Eating right, cutting out sugar, chocolate and other poison has also been essential.
There are some local and national charity providing support in lots of different areas that have groups for support and understanding.
Still on blood thinners and anti cholesterol and noratriptalin anti depressant but as others have said in other posts it’s trail and error finding what works for me and your self
Thanks so much again to all you people who post for sharing your stories
You are a great asset to the rest of us x
