    I am so glad I found this. I’ve always said my migraine as a kid was connected to my Post Stroke pain. This is the first time I’ve seen a doctor confirm it. I also get pinched nerves in my shoulders frequently. I was a 16 yr old female when I had my stroke and have all four types of post stroke pain. 21 years later & I’m still dealing with it.

    This is a wonderful presentation about post stroke pain. I had a few strokes which have left me with good mobility but awful migraines. They’re not particularly painful but very debilitating in that they impact motor functions and sensations. Covid has proved a huge barrier to getting good advice leaving me ( and others ) to fend for ourselves. After watching this I know to research down the Central Post Stroke avenue. Many thanks Dr McAlpine for posting this. My love and well wishes to fellow stroke survivors. I know it’s hard but stay positive and do your best to extract every bit of joy out of life in what ever capacity you have to enjoy it

    Am really grateful and thankful for what dr Francis has done for me and my family. i have be suffering from HERPES for good five years with no solution, the diseases almost took my life and because I was unable to work and I was also loosing lots of money for medication, but one faithful day when I went online, I met lots of testimonies about this great man so I decided to give it a try and to God be the glory he did it. If you need his help or you also want to get cured just the way I got mine, just email dr Francis with : drfrancis0001@gmail.com or WhatsApp ;+2348110732593 and get your healing. He has cure for other deadly diseases like DIABETES TYPE 1 & 2, HIV,

    I have been suffering from post stroke pain on my entire right side for almost 18 months. It is unbearable. I found a few research papers about vestibular caloric stimulation and how it can help thalamic pain syndrome. I convinced my dr to do it today, and it worked! My pain level has dropped from about a 7-8 to a 3-4. It is a miracle. It is so easy to do, and a little uncomfortable but not painful at all. Basically the nurse irrigated my ears with really cold water. It makes your eyes jump and makes the room spin for a minute or two. It was nothing compared to the pain I have had every day. This was at 10:00 this morning, and now 12 hours later there has been a definite reduction in the pain. The burning sensation is almost gone, and the edge is off of the general pain. The tingling is still there, but not as intense. According to the research, it could even get better in the next few days. I am going back to the dr to do it again next week. It is truly a miracle and I can not believe it worked. Here is the research I found — http://www.researchgate.net/publication/5305658_Behavioural_evidence_for_vestibular_stimulation_as_a_treatment_for_post-stroke_pain.

    It has given me hope when I thought there was none, and I was doomed to a lifetime of horrible pain. I am only 45 years old and have lots of life left to live! PLEASE try it – it is so easy – I want to shout it from the rooftops!

    Thanks for this. My older brother has been really struggling with Central Pain Syndrome post-stroke. I am looking for resources to try and help extended family members to better understand why he has withdrawn from social situations and does not seem like "himself" even though (to others) he looks as if he has experienced a fairly good recovery or has minimal symptoms in his limbs, etc.

    Thanks so much this describes my pain perfectly. I had a stroke may 2020 4 months later i have terrible days and nights with this pain. Not sure whether my doctor believes me but it can be totally incapacitating.
