The course of the disease | Dizziness after stroke

The course of the disease

The course of dizziness after a stroke varies greatly and depends on the extent of the damage to the brain. In some patients the dizziness lasts for a few days or weeks and then disappears during the rehabilitation phase. Accordingly, the course of the disease can be very mild. However, it can also happen that the dizziness persists for years after the stroke. In this case, an attempt should be made to maintain the ability to cope with everyday life so that the dizziness is not too limiting.

The forecast

The duration of dizziness after a stroke can vary greatly depending on the severity and location of the stroke. Dizziness often lasts from a few days to weeks after the stroke and can be successfully reduced by efficient and early rehabilitation. Occasionally, however, dizziness may persist for years after the stroke, worsening the prognosis and the prospect of a permanent improvement in vertigo.
