Beauty Parlor stroke. Back in August 2010 one of the women who uses this web site sent me an email about her experience at the beauty parlor. And when I did some research about what happened to her. I just think every woman needs to know this. Here is her letter:
I so enjoy your newsletter! I had an experience this summer I would like to share with you, and anyone you care to share it with. I was at a beauty parlor getting my hair done.
When it was time to sit at the shampoo bowl I warned the operator that I had several surgeries on my neck and did not want to lean back until the water was the right temp.
She said, "Oh, I have a little pillow for your neck!" In putting the pillow behind my neck she accidentally bashed my head against the high rim of the bowl. I thought at the time that it was out of proportion painful, but the pillow did feel good.
The following week I was back again. No accident this time, but I noticed the pillow was not helpful on this occasion. In fact, I was downright uncomfortable. I had been feeling bad anyway, eyes acting oddly, blood pressure spiking, seeming a little dizzy. By night, I checked into the local ER feeling absolutely lousy. They did a CT scan and found I had bleeding into the brain. They ambulanced me over to the ICU of a big hospital. More tests confirmed that the blood pattern was consistent with a blow to the head just where I had been hit the week before. There was nothing they could actually do, the blood would reabsorb.
Further CT scans have shown it is getting better. It has been about 6 weeks now and I am starting to feel like my old self most days. One of the male nurses in the hospital smiled and said, "Well, I hope you liked your hair!" I feel sort of silly having all this expense and fuss because of a little vanity!
But when I began to research the topic of Seniors Beauty Parlor strokes I found that having your hair washed in a beauty salon is so often a cause of a stroke that neurologists and other health care providers have a category "Beauty Parlor Stroke".
To avoid Seniors Beauty Parlor strokes:
