My daughter had a frontal lobe stroke 25 years ago and last year had two strokes, one in the frontal lobe and one in the cerebellum. I don t know what type of stroke the cerebellum was, others were ischemic. This past Sunday, she fell off the couch, unable to move her left side, face drooping. Husband called 911 for ambulance. Doctor told her they don t think it was a stroke, probably a pseudo stroke which can happen a year after original stroke. How could we tell the difference?

My mothers brother in India has had a stroke in the last few hours. The Hospital (PGI in Chandighar) is refusing to admit him, instead they have done preliminary checks and I believe they have given a dose of t-PA and sent him home. Is this correct procedure for India? As a student doctor in the UK I feel this is substandard and bad treatment. Also How should the patient be treated if they are at home? Since certain monitoring deviced are not available.
