Cerebral thrombosis is caused by atherosclerosis, endarteritis, and high blood viscosity, which lead to the formation of local cerebral blood clots. Atherosclerosis is the first cause of cerebral thrombosis. Because it is more common in the elderly, the incidence of cerebral thrombosis will increase with age.
The 7 early symptoms of cerebral thrombosis must be paid attention to.
1. Sudden dizziness
Dizziness is a very common symptom of cerebral thrombosis. It can occur at any time before cerebrovascular disease, especially when you wake up in the morning. In addition, it is easy to occur after fatigue and bathing. Especially in hypertensive patients, if dizziness occurs repeatedly more than 5 times in 1 to 2 days, the risk of cerebral hemorrhage or cerebral infarction increases.
2. Sudden severe headache
Any sudden severe headache with convulsions, recent history of head trauma, accompanied by coma and drowsiness, Sudden changes in the nature, location, distribution, etc. of the headache, headache aggravated by coughing, severe pain, wake up painful at night. If you have one of the above conditions, you should go to the hospital for examination and treatment as soon as possible.
3. Abnormal gait
Staggering, weakness in walking legs is one of the aura symptoms of hemiplegia. If the gait of the elderly changes suddenly, accompanied by numbness and weakness of the limbs, it is a precursor to cerebrovascular disease.
4. Keep yawning
80% of people suffering from ischemic cerebral thrombosis will yawn continuously 5-10 days before the onset.
5. Nosebleeds in hypertensive patients
This is a red flag that deserves attention. Several times of massive nosebleeds, plus fundus bleeding, hematuria, such people may develop cerebral thrombosis within half a year.
6. Abnormal blood pressure
When blood pressure suddenly and continuously rises above 200/120mmHg, it is a precursor to cerebral thrombosis, when blood pressure suddenly drops below 80/50mmHg, it is a precursor to cerebral thrombosis.
7. Other aura symptoms
In addition to the above-mentioned aura symptoms, coughing, difficulty swallowing, sudden half-body numbness, fatigue, lethargy, tinnitus, etc. are also precursors of cerebral thrombosis.
