I had a massive stroke 30th January 2023 first 3 weeks I was completely paralized on left side I was in hospital 7 weeks 2 weeks before I was discharged I could walk with a walker but I started to have sevre pain in my left side bottom bone. I could not sit it felt like I had a big orange of pain around the bottom bone. Nothing was done about it in hospital. After hospital my gp could see how much pain I was in referred me to a pysio and this pysio didn't do anything on first visit he requested all my ct scans & ultrasound scan of my bottom bone. 2nd visit with pusio he said he understands what is wrong I also have a misaligned pelvis which came from birth . Pysio massaged the tight muscles in bottom bone then he did a few stretches with left leg, I'm left with goldfish syndrome my memory is very bad now so I carnt remember everything he did but I remember he lifted my left leg up to he's shoulder & pulled from very bottom of my leg by the end he would stand me up and I was straight on both sides left & right . I straight away could walk without limping I seen this pysio for 6 weeks by then I was walking as normal as everyone else , if I had to I think I could have ran and pain in my bottom bone was cut in more than half. My pysio then told me he was leaving & moving north to Gold Coast area in Australia so I started to see another pysio at the same clinic , she didn't do what my first pysio did & she hurt me badly not only was bottom bone pain back but my toes went numb no feeling in them so I went to another pysio that hurt me again & after half of my foot was numb no feeling . The pain is so horrific & I had trouble finding a pysio that specialises in after stroke pain she hadn't hurt me & studied all my scans she gave me very light excersises but I cannot do the excersises causing more pain I've been in absolute horrific pain every day I cannot sit carnt stand for long and I've been in this pain for nearly 12 months now & I feel like the first pysio was the only one that was helping me & understood what was wrong I feel like the others are just guessing at what's wrong & hurting me more. Pain killers aren't helping I'm finally on a pain killer that works a bit better than the others they tried me on but the dose is not high enough seeing my gp about that tomorrow.
But I carnt do another 12 months living with this pain. I'm not having any life at all I've pushed family away cause I don't think they understand I carnt cope with visitors as I'm not even coping with myself can you help or give me any excersises to help me please

Thanks for the advice and a very useful video, I had a " MILD !!! " stroke a month ago, I've been practicing Guitar & going on little walks , gradually doing more & more each day. I can tell you there's a light at the end of the tunnel ( PHYSICALLY) , to be honest, it's the emotional side that I've found the hardest to deal with. But I'm sure there's videos online that will give advice on coping mechanisms that are probably useful. I think it's a long road, so don't despair " easy to say, I was crying half an hour ago" so don't beat yourself up, keep trying & have a wonderful Christmas and a brilliant New year & remember thank God we're alive. PEACE AND LOVE TO EVERYONE ❤❤.
