With a stroke associated with hemorrhage, the destruction of brain tissue occurs and, in connection with this, a violation of the corresponding functions. The patient loses consciousness, his face turns purple-red, his breathing is deep, frequent, often wheezing, his pulse is tense and slow, his temperature rises, his urine and bowel movements are delayed or excreted involuntarily. Such a serious, life-threatening condition usually lasts 1-3 days, then consciousness returns and the consequences are revealed: paralysis of the limbs, speech impairment. Impaired functions can be partially restored within a few months.
With a stroke associated with blocking of cerebral vessels, brain tissue softens. After a headache, dizziness, gradually, without loss of consciousness, a sensation of numbness in one or another limb develops, which can then be replaced by paralysis, sensitivity disorder, and speech impairment. The patient’s face is pale, the pupils are narrow, the pulse is weak, the temperature is normal. Function restoration (usually incomplete) continues for several months.
