    Thank you for this video. You don’t know how much of a relief it is to hear somebody talk about some of the things I’ve been experiencing in my world. From somebody who has dealt with a stroke and is still trying to understand everything, this video is a great resource to have!

Then two months after I lost all understanding of language for about an hour were i just babbled on like a baby. Since then my memory is getting worst were I can not remember how to do the things I use too… Can you tell me if I am prone to a full stroke and what is the prognosis… Thank you for the video

    I’m on day 11 after a right hypothalamus stroke, came home from hospital 4 days ago, dieback at work tomorrow & trying to come to terms with what has happened. I have never felt so much fatguy before. Sleeping up to 14 hours a day and still tired.got pain relief for my neuropathic pain. Had occupaytherapy and physio therapy which gave helped. I’m sleeping soundly all night and having ling naps during the day. My Stroke happened in my sleep I woke up with my left side paralysed, my voice was slurred and my right eye would not wake up. I’m only 50 and this has scared me badly

    Thank you so much for this critical information. I had a left side thalamic stroke in March 2018 and now I finally understand the pain in my affected hand! None of my doctors have ever explained that to me and nothing seems to work on the pain. I so appreciate you sharing your expertise with us. Please continue to post these incredibly informative videos.

    I know someone with a thalamic stroke and I’m always fascinated to learn more about it. Its hard to find into on thalamic stroke since it seems rare and not often talked about so thank you. The person I know had a thalamic stroke on left side and it mostly effected their eye movements,(the eyes roll and twitch involuntarily, is that normal with thalamic stroke?) and balance. btw here’s a good short film http://www.cripvideoproductions.com/astrokeofendurance.php based on real stroke survivors that depicts neuro-fatigue and adjustment to stroke really well in case you are interested!

    Thank you for posting this, and being so enthusiastic! I had a CVST of the thalamus back in 2015. I have Hemiplegic Migraines, migraines with stroke symptoms, so we thought it was just another one of those. Was a week before I went to the hospital. I was in ICU, almost died. Even have brain damage. Doctors were marveled, couldn’t figure out of it was a clot or a bleed for the longest time, had all of the doctors excited and curious. I’m so sick of not being able to trust my brain. All this made my HM worse, of course. I can never trust my brain and it’s so devastating because I was a smart child. I know it takes a long time for the brain to heal from such damage, but I’m impatient. Can’t work. Brain gets things confused all the time. I have to deal with my mood swings, depression and anxiety comes with living like this. My life has been hell since the stroke and I just want some part of my life back.

    Dizziness is a common post-stroke complaint noted by as many as 80 percent of survivors after certain types of stroke. Learn what you can do for better coping with your episodes of dizziness. Check out Dr. Sullivan’s article: Post-Stroke Dizziness: Why Is It Happening and What To Do About It

    I had a stroke April 2018 and until a week ago did not know what kind of stroke it was. I was told it was "Basal Ganglia small vessel Lunar stroke" last month. Clear as mud. So I researched Basel Ganglia stroke and it did not fit. I watched this YouTube and knew it was me. I went back to neurologist and he said, The Basal ganglia is part of thalamus’ and so I sat there until answered every question. I do pray no one else has to go so long without being told what kind of stroke they had. I felt so crazy for a year and 4 months telling my symptoms to doctors and being treated like I was being emotional, not one saying it sounds like thalamus stroke. Maybe one doctor could have told me my symptoms were normal for this type stroke. What is the point of 8 plus years of medical training if Doctors do not communicate to patients? Thank you for speaking "human" and not "doctoreeze"
