I note that your dizziness when after about 6 months. Which is certainly good. I'm really just trying to find out if it does actually go eventually and the likely timeframe.
When you said repetitive exercises. What do you mean by that? Was that to combat the dizziness?
Thanks in advance
I found that no one can give a time frame in relation to any part of stroke recovery. (I was a very fit 53 years old when I had the stroke}
I have searched the internet asked every Doctor, and anyone that would listen, in regards to the numbness I experience down the right hand side of my body. No one can tell me when the numbness will ease or when I may be rid of this condition.
I was lucky the dizziness disappeared by it self. The repetitive exercise I referred to was mainly to help with hand movement and walking. I found myself repeating the exercises given to me over and over again no matter small the movement. I felt it was the only way I was going to relearn.
I get tired very easily and fall asleep a lot, but I can only sleep for short periods of time. The important thing is never give up hope, because if you do that’s how you will stay.
Some times progress will slow right down, and then out of the blue you make some progress. I know there’s a lot of generalization in what I say, it’s exactly the way I received information. No one could give me solid answers to my questions, which me more determine exercise whenever and however I could.
The people on this forum give me hope and courage to solider on and made feel that I’m not alone in this struggle.
It can be very confusing; I hope that I have been able to help you.
Love and God bless
