This is Dr. David
are you talking about focal ischemia in the brain?
were these seen on MRI scan of the brain?
what symptoms are you having from the focal ischemia?
Hello Dr.David,yes in the Brain,and yes,shown on MRI scan,symtons are,slow movement,and lightheadiness,Leon
at your age of 78, you could have poor blood vessels
which can cause leaking and broken blood vessels in the brain and cause these ischemic spots in the brain.
the best way to improve the blood vessels in the body is to not smoke, and avoid alcohol and exercise.
and avoid diabetes.
at your age, it can be hard to improve your blood vessels and blood flow if you have had many years of poor blood vessels.
Ok understand,but suprised about exercise,as I try to keep fit?Leon
yes, it is important to keep fit at any age.
even at age 78, you can walk and exercise
you could do physical therapy to help your movements and joints and improve flexibility and strength
if you are having low blood sugar or low blood pressure, this can cause light headedness.
poor circulation can cause light headedness as well.
do you have other questions?
No,thats fine, thanks for your help,Regards,Leon
you are welcome
