My grandmothers lips & cheeks were swollen so bad you couldn’t recognize who she was for the past 3 days but when she woke up today it was okay they’re just barely swollen today. & she says ever since that happened she feels really weak & strained and her right hand/arm feels tight like its drawing up. & shes barely got any coordination she’s wobbly when she walks .? Help. I was happy to learn… The following website states: ” Watch for these signs and symptoms if you think you or someone else may be having a stroke. Note when your signs and symptoms begin, because the length of time they have been present may guide your treatment decisions. Trouble with walking. You may stumble or experience sudden dizziness, loss of balance or loss of coordination. Trouble with speaking and understanding. You may experience confusion. You may slur your words or have difficulty understanding speech. Paralysis or numbness of the face, arm or leg. You may develop sudden numbness, weakness or paralysis in your face, arm or leg, especially on one side of your body. Try to raise both your arms over your head at the same time. If one arm begins to fall, you may be having a stroke. Similarly, one side of your mouth may droop when you try to smile. Trouble with seeing in one or both eyes. You may suddenly have blurred or blackened vision in one or both eyes, or you may see double. Headache. A sudden, severe headache, which may be accompanied by vomiting, dizziness or altered consciousness, may indicate you’re having a stroke. ” Unfortunately, if your grandmother has been like this for the past 3 days, I’m afraid that the damage has already been done. The same website states: “Seek immediate medical attention if you notice any signs or symptoms of a stroke, even if they seem to fluctuate or disappear. Call 911 or your local emergency number right away. Every minute counts. Don’t wait to see if symptoms go away. The longer a stroke goes untreated, the greater the potential for brain damage and disability. To maximize the effectiveness of evaluation and treatment, you’ll need to be treated at a hospital within three hours after your first symptoms appeared. If you’re with someone you suspect is having a stroke, watch the person carefully while waiting for emergency assistance. ” There are different types of stroke that MAY affect a person in different ways. I would suggest that you take a look at the information on the website, and try to get your grandmother to see a doctor as soon as possible. I wish both yourself and your grandmother the very best of luck.
