Failure in the work of the brain threatens the life of the whole body.
One of the symptoms of cerebral ischemia is numbness, and it is caused by the fact that sensory information is improperly processed or not transmitted by neurons at all. This can also be the cause of temporary blindness. If a person suffers from chronic cerebral ischemia, then in his behavior there is a retardation of mental processes, which in turn negatively affects many factors of life.
At the initial stage of the disease, the symptoms may be hidden. Specialists distinguish two forms of the disease: acute and chronic.
Among the symptoms of the brain are the main: dysfunction of the nervous system, causing speech disorder or vision problems; Fatigue; General weakness; drowsiness; Reduction of working capacity; Amnesia; Sharp mood swings; irritability; jitters; Insomnia, headache; Arterial pressure drops; Superficial and frequent breathing; dizziness; Loss of consciousness; Nausea; Vomiting Numbness of the limbs; Feeling cold in the palms and feet.
When the disease gets worse, its symptoms may be aggravated. She progresses in stages.
The complexity of the diagnosis of some brain diseases is that their symptoms are quite similar to the "standard" changes in well-being in the elderly. In cerebral ischemia there is another feature - its signs are very individual. It is explained by the fact that various people are affected by different parts of the central organ of the central nervous system.
When diagnosing an important role is played by observations of relatives of the sick person, which give a more accurate description of the changes occurring. In such cases, one can not rely solely on the words of the patients themselves due to the hindrance and confusion of consciousness.
What are the causes of cerebral ischemia? This may be a lack of cerebral blood flow, which leads to oxygen starvation, which occurs due to the narrowing of the artery's lumen or its complete blockage. As you know, cells without oxygen can not function properly. And in the case when this process is delayed, tissue necrosis (heart attack) may begin.
Brain hypoxia is characteristic of pathologies such as arterial hypertension and atherosclerosis due to an increase in fatty deposits on the inner wall of cerebral vessels.
As you know, the causes of ischemic disease are numerous, but the most important of them is the complete or partial overlap of the bloodstream.
Prevention of cerebral ischemia, as in the case of many other diseases, is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is recommended to avoid stress, avoid overeating, observe "antiholesterinovaya" diet, engage in sports, abandon alcohol and smoking as much as possible in the fresh air.
