Re: My 75 year old mother had a stroke

that is odd that she has pain in her back, head, etc. my father had a stroke and since the feeling came back in his left arm, although his arm, we know no is not coming back, nor is his left leg.....
i feel a pain pill should be in order and a doc should give some explaintion of why all of the pain?
my dad has to lay on his back all of the time also, this may be part of her problem. my dad lost his appetite also, yet still eats his food, as so far.
ensure is a big plus if mom isn't eating, so i hear.
i also had to have my dad get a sleeping pill everynite, he can not sleep in the nursing home, he's just plain uncomfortable and sad, me also.....sometimes it becomes unbearable. his sleeping pill is trasydone, they also put him on aggrenox ( anti-depressant)
post anytime if you need some support
take care
