In 2006 I had a stroke and it hit in my eyes,,I am doing alright in that right now but it affected my short term memory,,,also I am finding out that if someone tries to tell me directions on the phone or in person I find it hard to comprehend sometimes like it is too much for me to try to remember all at one time, and sometimes when I wake up in the mornings I feel "jittery" inside and sometimes I feel edgy.Also I was put on a low dose aspirin a day for my stroke..and I have noticed that my hands and feet stay extremely cold in the summer as well as the winter months ,even with my hot flashes when I am sweating my hands and feet are cold..so much so whenever I shake hands with someone at church they make a comment about how cold my hands are,,but myself I dont feel cold...is this "normal"? Thank you for your time and kindness,,take care God bless you and your loved onesView Thread
I forgot to mention also that I wanted to take a soy supplement for hot flashes but was told by doctors in Memphis that this was a big no no as it has estrogen properties or something similar to that affect. And too that it was a big no no as that I had had a stroke..any truth to this...View Thread
