Two days ago, I met a patient with a cerebral infarction who, unlike a cerebral infarction in the conventional sense, was only 37 years old and had a low level of arterial vascular aging, but had been diagnosed with a cerebral infarction three years earlier and was currently wheelchair dependent for mobility.
Through careful communication with the patient, together with the comprehensive examination report, I found that he was a typical cerebral infarction induced by cervical spine lesions. Before the onset of the disease in early 2019, he had a relatively serious car accident, when his cervical spine was severely injured, and then his cervical spine never healed, and this degree of cervical spine injury has a relatively large impact on the nervous system.
Cervical spondylosis should not be underestimated!
Cervical spondylosis is a disease that is subject to external changes, and was not taken seriously decades ago, on the one hand because of the lack of medical knowledge, on the other hand, the incidence is not high, but with the development of time, the rise of various electronic products, cervical spondylosis ushered in the "heyday", more and more people suffer from cervical spondylosis, the age of onset from 40 to 20 years old, becoming a veritable first common disease.
The cervical spine is a necessary route for blood supply from the heart to the brain, and not only does it need to bear the weight of the head all the time, but it is also the most active part of the spine, and there are a large number of nerve centers inside it.
Who is more likely to get sick?
1, as a chronic disease, the vast majority of people's cervical spondylosis is caused by years and years, they often work with high intensity, which requires substantial movement of the cervical spine, and then slowly damage the cervical spine.
2, young people in modern society, more receptive to new things, like to work on all kinds of electronic products, entertainment, social, which has led to the emergence of terms such as ambulatory work, low-headed people, such people are more likely to suffer from cervical spondylosis.
3, once the winter, people will naturally add clothing, but few people do warm for the cervical spine, cervical spine there are a large number of vascular nerves, they are very sensitive to the external temperature, if suddenly suffer stronger cold air, it is easy to be stimulated, which leads to vascular spasm contraction, so people who do not pay attention to the neck warmth is also more prone to disease.
5 symptoms that indicate brain damage!
1, abnormal vision: Patients will change in vision, vision gradually decreases, often appear blurred vision, visual field loss, and some patients will also have frequent black haze, after excluding eye diseases, you should consider the possibility of tigering brain infarction.
2, abnormal language: the patient's ability to communicate will be affected, sudden slurring and stuttering, the brain is conscious, but just can't express themselves correctly, there is a tendency to gibberish, this time should immediately go to the hospital.
3, Fatigue and drowsiness: Patients will feel tired and drowsy, and even if they get enough sleep, they will still have a feeling of drowsiness and yawn frequently.
4, dizziness and headache: this is the most typical symptom of patients, patients will have frequent episodes of headache and dizziness, which is due to insufficient blood supply from the heart to the brain, often appearing and disappearing suddenly.
5, limited activity: the patient's limb function will be affected, for example, the upper limb weakness, holding things unstable, which in daily life is reflected in the hands of things often slipped; lower limb weakness, walking often fall down.
I hope my science can help you!
