"Eating a diet loaded with antioxidant-rich vegetables, fruits, and whole grains may help women lower their chances of having a stroke -- even if they have a history of heart disease or stroke, a new study shows."
"Among women with a history of heart disease or stroke, those who ate and drank the most antioxidant-rich foods and drinks were 45% less likely to have a hemorrhagic stroke than women who ate the least." Here's our recent News Article for more information. Please share any dieting advice that your doctor or love one's doctor has given after suffering from a stroke.
Looking forward to hearing some healthy dieting tips! AmeliaView Thread
I'm so incredibly sorry to hear about your situation and hope that things get better in the near future. According to this WebMD Chiropractors Overview, "Although rare, there have been cases in which treatment worsened a herniated or slipped disc, or neck manipulation resulted in stroke or spinal cord injury. To be safe, always inform your primary health care provider whenever you use chiropractic or other pain relief alternatives."
Also, this Neck Cracking Raises Stroke Risk article states that, "One of the leading causes of stroke before age 45 is something called cervical arterial dissection. That's when one of the two arteries that wind through the back of the neck to the brain starts to tear. The lining of the artery bleeds and forms a blood clot. This clot can easily enter the brain and cause a fatal stroke."
Supposedly this is very rare to happen, yet indeed there is some information out there that this could be possible in your situation. As far as your constant headaches, I encourage you to post your questions and concerns in our Migraines & Headaches Community for member and expert feedback. Also, you may consider visiting a headache clinic, if things do not get better.
I wish you the very best and hope that you will keep us posted!

I'm so sorry to hear about your husband and wanted to share this helpful Vascular Dementia Overview with you, as it explains much of what your husband has gone through and is at the moment.
"Vascular dementia can occur over time as "silent" strokes pile up. Quite often, vascular dementia draws attention to itself only when the impact of so many strokes adds up to significant disability. Avoiding and controlling risk factors such as diabetes , high blood pressure , smoking , and high cholesterol can help curb the risk of vascular dementia."
Please take care and speak with his doctor about any concerns that you have and handling things at home for him and yourself. I'm wishing you both the very best.
