Some women who are using Yasmin, Ocella and Yaz birth control may exposed to several dangerous side effects due to the hormones released into their bodies. Please contact us for the latest news. Cases continue to be filed by women affected by side effects and currently there have not been any Yaz lawsuit payouts. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism and hypertension, and myocardial infarction are among the most serious. Some women may also experience a stroke. This occurs when blood clots migrate into one of the arteries supplying oxygen and blood to the brain. If they create an obstruction, they will prevent blood from reaching the brain. A stroke results, triggering one or more disabilities.
Most stroke survivors require some level of rehabilitation. Its type and duration depend on the impairments suffered as well as their severity. We’ll describe the goal of rehabilitation, and the disabilities it seeks to address below.
The Goal Of Yaz Side Effects Stroke Rehabilitation
A stroke can result in impairments that are either physical or cognitive. They may be mild and barely noticeable, or severe. In the latter case, they may significantly reduce your quality of life. The main goal of rehabilitation is to help you regain functions that were lost.
In some cases, this involves retraining the brain – and thus, the body – to do things that were once easy. An example would be relearning how to brush your hair. If relearning how to perform a task is not possible, a therapist will help you learn an alternative approach. For example, if the Yaz stroke results in right-sided paralysis, you might need to learn how to brush your hair, drive, or perform your job, with your left hand.
The direction of therapy is governed by the type of impairments caused by the stroke. They vary based on the location of the arterial blockage in the brain.
Types Of Impairments That Result From A Stroke
Loss or impairment of motor functions is common. This can include paralysis that affects one side of your body (called hemiplegia). It can also include one-sided weakness (called hemiparesis). With some strokes, a blood clot may deprive the portion of your brain that influences your ability to swallow. This can make swallowing difficult, a condition known as dysphagia. Stroke can also affect your ability to walk straight, or balance yourself while standing.
Language deficits are also common. Known broadly as aphasia, these can impair your ability to speak or understand what others are saying. It also affects your ability to understand what is written. There are different types of aphasia that are categorized by their presentation. This is influenced by the lobe of your brain that suffered injury during the stroke.
Impairments to sensory perception are also found in survivors; they can present in several ways. For example, you may be unable to identify changes in temperature; you might lose the ability to feel pain; or you may be unable to recognize when someone is touching you.
Yaz stroke symptoms can affect your memory and cognition. This, too, presents differently based on the location of the brain injury. You may experience a deficit in your short-term memory; you might develop neglect of your affected limbs; or your brain may not accept or recognize your physical disabilities.
How Post-Stroke Rehabilitation Occurs
As mentioned earlier, the path to recovery depends on the Ocella, Yasmin or Yaz side effects stroke symptoms that present. For instance, a physical therapist will help you cope with motor function deficits; therapy might involve exercises designed to help you regain full motion of your affected limbs. If you suffer from a language disability, a speech therapist will help you relearn basic communication skills, or develop alternative ways to communicate. An occupational therapist will help you cope with sensory and memory deficits.
Even though a stroke is unlikely to be fatal, it can trigger lasting impairments that require rehabilitation. Survivors who develop severe deficits may require long-term care. If you have suffered from blood clots, stroke, or other dangerous Yasmin, Ocella or Yaz side effects, you may be able to file a claim for compensation for your injuries.
