Hello I'm new here, I had a spinal stroke on 13th March was sent home from hospital early with virtually no support in the community both due to Covid 19.
My husband was able to look after me until this week when he had to return to work. I'm normally a positive person with the attitude that tomorrow is another day but my down days are becoming more frequent. I've been told more times that I care to remember that my type of stroke is rare and very often people don't know how to treat it. I struggle to walk both legs having weakness with the left being the worst affected, my right knee is affected by arthritis which is getting more painful daily and gives way at times. I struggle with constant tiredness and feel isolated and quite low. I've just had my 64th birthday and feel like an old woman. Is there anyone else out there that has had a spinal stroke?
