Treatment Of Spastic Hemiplegia Syndrome
Neurology: Needs to be seen by an expert.
Transient?: Hemiplegic migraine can cause temporary "one-sided paralysis", but if this is permanent, it is important to have a full evaluation. Treatment is based on causation. Best to start with a primary care physician and consider neurological consultation.
Asked MD?: What does your gynecologist or urologist say?
Several: There are multiple treatments that can be used to treat the spasticity related to spastic diplegic cerebral palsy. The main consideration is making sure that the treatment does not make the legs too weak and affects walking ability. Medications, physical therapy, injections with botulinum toxin and surgery (last resort). May all be used depending on the patient and his/her functional goals.
Confirm diagnosis...: Ibs can mimic many conditions, & vice versa. Ibs runs a spectrum from diarrhea-predominant to constipation +/- pain. Sibo (bacteria) may be present. Has systemic disease been ruled out? Ibs is a diagnosis of exclusion, so an examination, a few simple tests, & assessment of symptom duration, intensity, location, quality, timing, etc. Will clarify your treatment course. Talk with GI doctor please.
There are surgical: Options, such as tendon transfers. There are physicians at tgh that i know can do this. However, this will not correct the myelopathy, it will only ease the pain from the spasticity. It may not improve function as well. Have you tried Botox injections? They are very useful with spasticity of you have not tried yet.
Symptomatic treatmen: Hsp is a group of inherited disorders, often insidiously progressive and severe. There are no effective treatments to the underlying damage to the nerve axons so treatment is symptomatic. Baclofen, dantrolene and tinazidine may help with spasticity; oxybutinin with urinary urgency; gabapentin, Pregabalin and duloxetine for neuropathy. Vitamins, d, e and b6 may also help. Physical therapy also.
My gf hd TB meningitis 1 yr bck nd her doc jst told me tht hr biggest issue is spastic quadriparesis. She cn move all limbs bt can't walk straight. Dey gave baclofen+tizanidine. Any other treatment?
Post-meningitic: TB affects multiple areas and can damage the nervous system by both direct damage and vasculitis of penetrating vessels from the meninges to the brain resulting in infarcts (killing of brain cells). This is not generally fully reversible and must be treated symptomatically. The only person who can determine what is necessary is the neurologist seeing her. Stick with them and be hopeful.
I have Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, Hep C, Spastic Hemi CP, vision is 20;200. falling apart, numerous doctors no treatment for anything, solutions!
Medical Marijuana: Your condition is dire. The way this should be treated is too complicated to write in the word limit answer. If you want those answers for treatments, consult me. Rather than cures to live longer, I'd improve quality of your life. Medical Marijuana can help you with spasticity, drug side-effects, symptoms of liver failure. But should be vaporized or better yet eaten due to ur emphysema.
I saw an O/T who told me there is an outpatient service for spasticity patients called neuropathy therapy? To help tightness? Forgot how its called?
Bobath botox: are both outpatient spasticity treatments available what is you spaticity from , sorry for your trouble i have this as well check with a physical med doctor
How can a stroke in utero happen and when could it happen and why didn't I know my son has CP right hemiplegia and i'm still trying to understand
Speculation: CP is defined as a disorder of movement & posture related to an injury of the developing nervous system.Data show that more than half happen in mothers with normal pregnancy/labor/delivery's.A fetus grabbing the umbilical cord and slowing blood flow (which can starve nerve cells), other events that shift circulation,etc.We can only speculate.Most could not be prevented.Bad stuff happens sometimesSee 1 more doctor answer
Plegia-n; paresis-y: Hemiplegia is a complete paralysis, usually of a limb or limbs (commonly on one side of the body and due to stroke). Largely irreversible, however well planned exercise, pt, particularly occupational therapy--maximizing functionality in activities of daily living--important. Hemiparesis is weakness: here, much can be reversed, at least improved, and other muscles can take over the same function.
