My Mother had a Ischemic stroke and i need helpHello. My name is Shveta and i am from India. My mother who is 65 yrs old and a diabetic had a Ischemic stroke two months back. We admitted her to the hosiptal within one hour of stroke and doctors gave her thrombolysis . She is now at home and is recovering. She has this speech problem and speaks with a slur. Also she cannot walk on her and we have a 24*7 attendant and either me or my sisters see her daily. From last month, we noticed that mom keeps nodding her head all the time and cries for no reason. We consulted a doctor who gave some medicones to control her constant neck movement but honestly we dont see any improvement there . We tried putting a neck collar but she gets uncomfortable and cries so loudly that we remove the neck support. I am so worried and unable to concenrtate on anything in life. Life seems to have stopped with mom illness.
Can anyone of you , guide me on what should we do or what have you done to stop this neck movement as i am scared it will harm her further. I am low on motivation and need guidance and support on how to deal with this. Thanks in advance
