Effects of Stroke: Moving and Sensing Things

The human brain has different areas that control how the body moves and feels. When a stroke damages a certain part of the brain, that part may not work as well as it did before. This can cause problems walking, speaking, seeing or feeling.

After a stroke you may have emotional and physical changes.  Depending on the side of the brain that is affected, you might have problems with:



Having seizures


Controlling your bowels or bladder
Moving parts of your body
