Hi, My father had a stroke about a year ago and he's is in the process of recovering. He has lost a lot of weight and has changed to a healthier diet. He has also started to exercise as well.
On some days, he feels fine and have energy to walk around. But a lot of the time, especially later in the day, he says he feels like he has no energy to do anything. He can be fine the entire day but it suddenly changes later in the day. There is also a numbness on the left side of his body.
I'm not sure if he is just over doing it but he always talks about numbness and tingling sensation on his left side making him not feel good.
I was wondering if anyone has experienced the same kind of thing and how they were able to deal with it. Thank you.View Thread
