Above: What Does A Stroke Do To Your Body? The Danger Of Having A Brain Stroke.
A stroke can occur at any time to anyone, but what causes them? And can you recover once you’ve had one? Permanent brain damage from a stroke may be reversible thanks to a developing therapeutic technique, a study has found. The novel approach combines transplanted human stem cells with a special protein that the US Food and Drug Administration already approved for clinical studies in new stroke patients.
Stroke affects everybody differently. Many stroke survivors continue to improve over a long time, sometimes over a number of years. Recovery from stroke involves making changes in the physical, social, and emotional aspects of your life. You will make changes to prevent additional strokes as well as to facilitate your life-long recovery.
What Is A Brain Stroke? What Causes A Cerebral Stroke?
A stroke is when poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death. There are two main types of strokes: ischemic strokes, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic strokes, due to bleeding. Both types of strokes result in parts of the brain not functioning properly. Signs and symptoms of a stroke may include an inability to move or feel on one side of the body, problems understanding or speaking, feeling like the world is spinning, or loss of vision. Signs and symptoms of a stroke often appear soon after the stroke has occurred. If stroke symptoms last less than one or two hours it is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA). Hemorrhagic strokes may also be associated with a severe headache. The symptoms of a stroke can be permanent. Long term stroke complications may also include pneumonia or loss of bladder control.
