compulsive behavior after a stroke

Unread postby HealthForum » Sun Mar 27, 2011 4:10 pm

My dad had a stroke back in september. It was a really bad one. After months of therapy, he is able to walk on his own. He has no use of his left arm. My problem is, he is extremely compulsive. He was not this way before the stroke. He will call us over and over again about the same things, until you give him the answer he wants. I don't believe its a memory thing, since he calls all his children with the same issues, over and over again. He also just started complaining of headaches. The doctors have put him on a new medicine to help with migraines. He did have another small stroke this past weekend. So, my questions are:

1. is compulsive behavior a side effect of a stroke, and can we do anything to stop this.

2. after a major stroke, is it typical to have mini strokes.

Thank you for any information you can provide.
