My grandmother had a stroke about a year again and recovered very well. She was perfectly healthy, she had all her motor functions, eye sight, etc. She has been taking medication for stroke ever since. Within the last two days she has been experiencing stroke symptoms again. Her eye sight in her left eye is every blurry (she can see figures but extremely blurry she says. Her motor skills on her left side are deteriorating, her left arm and leg hurt. She walked perfectly fine after the stroke, but now this morning she said her left leg gave out on her morning walk to the park. I asked my grandparents when their next doctors appointment was and they said it was next monday. I was wondering if they should schedule an appointment earlier or is waiting an ok idea.
WAITING IS NOT AN OPTION.
These symptoms could be the warnings that another big stroke is on the way. ACT NOW!
I had a stroke almost 2 years ago which took my vision in the upper left fields of both of my eyes. I had no idea that I had a stroke due to ignorance. I wish that I had the knowledge....Hope this helps..
