My husband suffered a stroke 3 weeks ago today, he is home and doing pretty good now but still needs some rehab to work his left side. My question is he complains about being dizzy and so tired and they told him in the hospital that they think it is caused from anxiety. He tells me he feels like he is going to die b/c he feels so bad. I was wondering if anyone knows how long the dizziness will last, they dr gave him a medicine for it but he says it doesnt help and that he really thinks there is something else wrong. Now mind you he has had many tests ran and they found nothing so I take it as he is just having a hard time dealing with all this and is worrying to much. I think it may be from the stroke itself and he needs to heal completely before this will go away. Is this normal or should we be concerned? I think his paranoia also comes from it took them 3 times at the ER before they finally diagnosed him right and he worries something else may be wrong. I spoke with a dr about it and she said his body went through alot of trauma and it just takes time. Any advice I can give him from anyone that has went through this or some helpful information about any of this. I would really appreciate it!!!View Thread
