Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 13948 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.
What this blog is for:
Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group. My back ground story is here:http://oc1dean.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-background-story_8.html

Evidence for the efficacy and effectiveness of THC-CBD oromucosal spray in symptom management of patients with spasticity due to multiple sclerosis
This research should be replicated for stroke patients but that won't occur because we have NO strategy and NO leadership following up anything interesting in research. Or you could illegally ask your doctor to get this from Germany. http://tan.sagepub.com/content/9/1/9?etoc
Spasticity, one of the main symptoms of
multiple sclerosis (MS), can affect more than 80% of MS patients during
of their disease and is often not treated
adequately. δ-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol-cannabidiol (THC-CBD) oromucosal
spray is a
plant-derived, standardized cannabinoid-based
oromucosal spray medicine for add-on treatment of moderate to severe,
multiple sclerosis-induced spasticity. This article
reviews the current evidence for the efficacy and safety, with
and fatigue as the most common treatment-related
adverse events, being mostly mild to moderate in severity. Results from
randomized controlled phase III studies involving
about,1600 MS patients or 1500 patient-years and recently published
on everyday clinical practice involving more than
1000 patients or more than,1000 patient-years are presented.
