Lethargic, tired, drowsy.

by Silvana

Question: I had a minor stroke 3 months ago. It affected my speech. I recuperated most of it. I still feel lethargic, tired, drowsy some days more and some days less with very slow improvement overall. Is this permanent?

Answer: Only time will tell if the lethargy and tiredness will stay with you. It is not uncommon to experience this within the first six months to a year after a stroke so hopefully your symptoms will improve with time. If the symptoms do not improve, speak with your MD about some possible solutions (e.g. nutrition counseling, meds, exercise, etc.).
