Headache continues after month of hemorrhagic stroke

My younger sister aged 22 had a sudden hemorrhagic stroke just one month ago. She was in good health condition with no previous hypertension history except some sort of migraine in past during university exams. She had ICH with ventricular extension and Left sided paralysis of hand and feet. But, now the main problem is her headache which has not yet gone totally. She experince some sort of piercing pain on her right side of head(blood clot was also on right frontal lobe of brain) specially after the end of the day at evening or night. Although paracetamol is useful at higher doses but how long can it be suggested along with antiepileptic and amylotryptine medicine? Or what can be done to get rid of it. Moreover, where she had no evidence of arterivenous malformation or aneurysm in MRI, what may be the probable cause of her such stroke? Pls help me if anyone can.

    Thank you for sharing your story with the support network. I'm sorry to hear that your sister is experiencing this, but she is lucky to have your support! Unfortunately, I'm not a medical professional, so I recommend raising these concerns with her cardiac care team to see what advice they have. In the meantime, I can also share some Recovery After Stroke resources for both of you to review. Please keep us updated on how she's doing.
