    Pain after stroke

    I am 32 years old and had a stroke last week. Wednesday to be exact. Today makes almost a week and the pain has become unbearable from my ribs to my hip on the left side I still have no feeling in the arm or the leg on that side and I have started to notice memory trouble is this normal a week after the stroke because I wasn't having much trouble with the memory until now the only part I couldn't remember was the time I was unconscious.

    RE: Pain after stroke

    I'm sorry just seeing this. I had 3 back to back strokes 2 1/2 yrs ago.
    Hopefully PT has helped to get you functioning pain free again by now. The best thing you can do for memory is go to a speech therapist. I found that out by accident because I scheduled for speech problems which cleared quickly but memory was more of an issue. Went to several doctors during the recovery process and found I was my best health advocate. I also researched about aspirin and found 2 baby aspirin had the best outcomes. So far no additional issues so I realize how lucky I am. Best of Luck to you.
