Apoplexy is most often due to disturbance of blood circulation in the brain, and includes diseases of the cerebral nervous system caused by cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral thrombosis, cerebral embolism and hemorrhage of the subarachnoid space, etc. Chief clinical symptoms are hemiplegia, mental disturbance and coma.
In TCM, there are the mild and severe types of apoplexy. Mild apoplexy results from the channels filling with wind, phlegm or a little of both. Symptoms include motor and sensory disturbances of the extremities. The severe type results from the internal organs being affected by wind and/or phlegm and occurs in either the flaccid or tense varieties.
