stroke aftermath
by: pat

I too had a stroke on the left side of my brain. Since then I cannot feel hot or cold on my right hand. I feel only intense pain when I touch a hot cup of liquid. Whereas I can feel the cup hot w/my left hand. Only pain with my right.

sensory problems
by: Anonymous

I live in a very rural area and there is no one to talk with or stroke support. I am 6 months post stroke and realize the hot/cold problem seems to be getting more intense. So what's next? I wonder. At least I know someone else has hot/cold problems - helps just knowing

Comment from stroke-rehab.com: Sometimes the sensory pathways don't recover, so it is very important to use compensation so you don't burn yourself. Use only your non-affected side to test temperatures. Be very careful around hot surfaces or during cooking paying attention to where your affected extremities are at all times.

I thought I was the only one
by: Ike Sweat

I had a stroke a year and a half ago, and since then I've had no sense of hot or cold and recently discovered Needles have no effect on me either.

But here's the deal. A month ago I had surgery on my left leg for a femoral artery bypass, and although I had much discomfort the pain was actually minimal. I was ready to go home the next morning, and my nurse mentioned (offhand) that people usually stay much longer and bitch a lot more. I suppose that was a red light but I didn't give it much thought.
This past Thursday I had the same procedure done on my right leg___KILL ME! I WANNA DIE! THE PAIN IS EXCRUCIATING, I CAN'T STAND IT.

I seriously expected the same thing as a month ago... I'm such an idiot.

Thanks for your page, at least I know there are more of us out there.
