problems you have after a stroke depend on what part of your brain was affected and how much damage the stroke caused. People
who have had a stroke often have:
- Problems with movement and sensation. You may have pain, numbness, or tingling in your arms
and legs; muscle stiffness or spasms; weakness; and trouble with walking and moving. You may have problems with
your sense of touch or how well you feel hot and cold, trouble swallowing and eating, and urinary or bowel problems.
seeing things on one side of the body. If you do not turn your head to that side, you may forget or ignore that
side of your body.
- Problems with language and thinking. You may not be able to understand written or spoken language,
read or write, or express your thoughts. You may also have problems with memory and learning.

and to do as much as you can every day.
