Rumble-Seat Stroke

Is it a stroke?
Stroke disease is a disorder of brain function caused by blood flow to the brain is impaired (reduced). As a result, nutrients and oxygen to the brain dbutuhkan not properly fulfilled. Cause there are two kinds of stroke, namely the existence of blockages in blood vessels (thrombus), and the presence of a ruptured blood vessel.
Generally a stroke suffered by the elderly, because of the aging process causes hardening and narrowing of blood vessels (arteriosclerosis) and the presence of fats that clog arteries (atherosclerosis). But some recent cases showed an increase in cases of stroke that occurs in adolescence and childbearing age (15-40 years). In this group, stroke is the leading cause of stress, drug abuse, alcohol, heredity, and lifestyle is not healthy.
Causes of stroke
In the case of stroke adolescence, genetic factors (hereditary) is the major cause of stroke. Frequently encountered cases of stroke caused by blood vessels are fragile and easily broken, or the blood system disorders such as hemophilia and thalassemia diseases are passed down from parents of patients. Meanwhile, if a family member with diabetes (diabetes), hypertension (high blood pressure), and heart disease, stroke likely to be larger in other family members.
The cause of stroke is a food with high levels of bad cholesterol (Low Density Lipoprotein) is very high. These evil Koleserol widely available in junk food, or fast food. In addition, other causes of stroke is a lazy habit of exercising and moving, lots of drinking alcohol, smoking, use of narcotic and addictive substances, much less rest time, and prolonged stress. Rupture of blood vessels are also often caused by high blood pressure (hypertension).
Symptoms of a stroke
The initial symptoms of stroke are generally dizziness, head was spinning (such as vertigo disease), then followed with a speech impairment and mouth muscles. Other symptoms are feeling tergangguanya sensor (can not feel anything, such as pinched or pricked needles) and the body feels paralyzed side, and the absence of reflex movement. Often also occur suddenly blind or blurred vision (due to the blood supply and oxygen to the eye is reduced drastically), disruption of taste in the mouth of the system and the muscles of the mouth (so often met with a wry face), paralysis of the muscles of the body, and disruption system memory and emotion. Common people can not stop crying because of paralysis of the brain controls the emotions system. It makes people act like a stroke patient psychiatric disease, but it's not. Things like this that need to be understood by the family of the patient.
The healing process
There are two main healing process that must be lived with. First is the healing with medicines in hospitals. Strict control should be done to keep the bad cholesterol can be lowered and did not grow up. In addition, patients are also prohibited from eating foods that can trigger a stroke such as junk food and salt (can lead to hypertension).
The healing process second is fisiotherapy, which exercises the muscles to restore muscle function and communication function to approach its former condition. Fisiotherapi Fisiotherapi conducted with instructors, and patients must adhere to the exercise performed. If this is not lived Fisiotherapi seriously, it can occur in permanent paralysis of the limbs that have experienced paralysis.
Healing in patients with stroke varies widely. There can be cleared completely (100%), some are only 50% only. Healing is dependent on whether or not severe stroke, the condition of the patient's body, in obedience to the patient undergoing the healing process, perseverance and spirit of the patient to recover, as well as support and understanding from all family members of patients. Often found that stroke survivors can recover, but suffered from severe depression because their families do not want to understand and feel very disturbed by illness (such as attitudes do not accept the person's condition, the harsh treatment because the patient had to clean dirt, submit the patient to the nurse who also treats patients with a rough, and so on). This should be avoided if a family member who suffered a stroke.
