Complications after a Stroke |

Some stroke complications are paralysis, difficulty talking or swallowing, memory loss, emotional problems, and pain. Haronyd Melo Nunez, Manager of Rehab Services at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says paralysis is one of the most common symptoms and it would happen on one side of the body. She also points out memory loss is very common. “People have issues remembering what they did a few minutes ago.”

Gabriela M. Ortega, Supervisor for Acute Rehabilitation at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, points out emotional problems can happen because of the area of the brain affected, and there can be changes in personality. “Patients often get depressed, because they have all these changes in the physical and mental health.” **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
