Post Stroke Pain

Aug 14, 2015 6:24 PM

Hi everyone, I'm new to the community, so I want to ask you something: Does anyone else have post stroke pain? I had a stroke during brain surgery back in February, and since then I've been in excruciating pain, coupled with other symptoms

StrokeSurvivor2015, welcome to the community. I hope you will find the compassion and support here that everyone has to offer. I'm sorry about your stroke. My mom had a stroke, years ago, and she did complain of pain afterwards. Is it possible the pain is from the brain surgery, moving nerves or cutting them? Or maybe you've developed fibromyalgia, which often occurs after trauma and illnesses. Hopefully others here will offer more than I'm able to. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. 🙏🌼

Hi FlappysLady81, I have seen a Rheumatologist, and he said I don't an autoimmune disease, but I do have Osteoarthritis in my spine. My mum still thinks that we are missing something, and I do too.

Osteoarthritis in the spine is more painful than it is in my knees or hands. It's good you don't have an autoimmune disease. Check into other things mentioned by others, like Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. It's taken me 8 months and I still don't have all the answers for why I have tremors, dizziness, or imbalance. And I had to push my docs to test for more until the right tests showed I have Sjogrens and hypothyroidism. Second and third opinions are a must when you feel docs are dismissing your complaints. Good luck! 🙏🌼
