Hi,
You should understand the importance of stroke.Early treatment better the outcome.Treatment depends on Ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke.Since you are unable to take her to hospital, atleast you can call RMP doctor or nurse to put IV line and hydrate her with normal saline,if that is also not possible try to give her 3 litres of water per day.Injection citicholin 500mg twice daily will take care of both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.Iv mannitol will reduce edema Check BP if high try to control it with medicine like amlodepine 5mg daily or twice daily depending on blood pressure.(to keep 130-140/90-100 range.Ryles tube insertion and medicine if not taking orally with the help of any nurse

I think if you took her to the hospital and they see that she is in need of medical attention and can't afford it they will get her the help she needs.She does need to get help and it's to bad people are going without medical insurance in this country.Take Care,Deb Bonanno.

Hi,Welcome to HCM.
Read your problem.She definitely will require medications so what you can do is take her to the doctor tell him that you cannot afford to keep her in hospital so ask him to give medications you can give at home.You can learn how to give physiotherapy and you can give at home.
Wish her good health.

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.

My grandmother had a stroke and will most likely by coming to live with us for recovery. What are the main things we need to focus on? Do we need to get a hospital bed? Our house is sort of small...what kind of machines do you think we re going to have to bring home to keep her happy and healthy? Right now (the stroke happened Thursday night and it s now Monday night) she is awake and speaking, though her words and garbled unless she forces herself to talk loud. Her spirits are good, but I ve had several people say that symptoms will continue to show up for weeks and months afterwards. She is 84...how much recovery can she be expected to make at that age? Sorry to ask so many questions, but I just don t know what to do. We ve got to sell her house, I guess, to afford a lot of this stuff, and with her moving in with us...things are just going to be...different. Hope that you can help with my rambling questions, I appreciate it! ~Joshua~

The last two days I have been experiencing buzzing in my right ear. This is also the side I have some blockage going on in carotid. Five years ago I had a mild stroke because the left carotid artery was almost completely blocked. I had surgery, and I have no residual effects of the stroke. I have kept an eye on the carotids with ultrasound every year. This ringing in the right ear is not constant, but comes & goes. It is a loud mechanical buzzing noise. Am I right in thinking it is probably due to the carotid blockage, or would you think it could be something more significant that needs further testing? Thank you.

hi i am a 21 yr old female with pretty healthy lifestyle im a vegetarian and my main source of protien is fish. About two years ago i was startled in my sleep by my room mate and it made my heart rate rather irregular. Since then anytime i am startled in my sleep it takes forever for my heart to return to a normal rate. I have had a few stroke scares due to tingling in my left arm and entire left side of my body after having tests ran catscan and blood work they found no sign of stroke. The other night i was again startled in my sleep and it took a while for my heart beat to return to normal as usual. But shortly after i started feeling this awkard pressure in my head and it wont go away im just wondering if anyone has an idea of what it could be
