2 months ago my mother who is 73 years old had a stroke caused by a blood vessel bursting in the brain (possibly haemorrhage). As a result her right side was slightly paralyzed, now she is able to walk but has lost strength and is having nausea and some numbness on her right arm. My mother has a high blood pressure and is taking medication but not regularly before the stroke, the day she had the stroke the blood pressure had gone to 200mmHg so I think this could have been the cause of the bleeding.
Mainly my mother is complaining about:
•strength to walk (mainly in the afternoon)
•dizzy, heaviness and sometimes tightness in her head
•numbness on her right arm
•and seems to be depressed
