A stroke can sometimes lead to hallucinations or delusions. On this page we explain the causes of hallucination and delusion after stroke, what to do when someone is unwell and where to get help.
This page is about stroke symptoms that are not caused by a stroke. Here we explain stroke mimic diagnosis, symptoms and treatments.
Around 30% of survivors experience pain after stroke. Post-stroke pain includes muscle and joint pain such as spasticity and shoulder pain. Learn about the causes and treatments.
Some people can experience post-stroke seizures. A small number of people go on to develop epilepsy, which is a tendency to have repeated seizures. Find out about the different types of seizures and how epilepsy is diagnosed and treated.
Being told that you’ve got vascular dementia can be devastating, but people with dementia can lead active, purposeful lives. Find information and advice to help you adjust to living with vascular dementia.
At the moment there are no treatments that cure vascular dementia but there are treatments to help with many of the symptoms.
This research aims to improve outcomes for Intracerebral Haemorrhage (ICH) patients by developing new emergency treatments to reduce swelling in the brain after ICH, and improving the care that patients receive.
Spatial neglect is caused when damage to the brain after stroke means that it no longer received information about one side of the body and/or world. Stroke survivors with spatial neglect might not be aware of anything happening on one side of their body. This research will investigate a computer based version of a new treatment for spatial neglect after stroke.
This research will test a new questionnaire which has been designed to measure the impact that stroke-related vision problems have on a stroke survivor’s quality of life.
This research will investigate the use of orthitics (for example, braces and splints) early on in a stroke survivor’s rehabilitation. The results will inform a larger study into early orthotic use after stroke.
