Yawning, often tired, falling asleep, or sickness signals

  People often say that spring is lacking in autumn. Recently, the weather has turned cold, and Liu’s grandfather, who is nearly seventy years old, seems to have fallen into a “sleepy” situation. In the past two weeks, he often yawned and was sleepy. At the beginning, Grandpa Liu and his family did not care, thinking that it was due to weather changes. Unexpectedly, the frequency of Liu’s yawning is getting higher and higher. At the same time, there are also phenomena such as weak limbs and sluggishness. The careful family quickly took him to the hospital for treatment. After the examination, the doctor confirmed that Liu was suffering from a stroke.
  Experts caution that stroke can be divided into two types. One is the cerebral hemorrhage caused by rupture of the cerebral artery, which can cause the patient to have hemiplegia and hemiplegia. The other is the ischemic stroke caused by cerebral arterial embolism, which can cause cerebral ischemia and hypoxia. Seriously life-threatening. Under normal circumstances, when people feel tired and sleepy, they often make a few yawns, which can temporarily reduce the fatigue. 70% to 80% of patients with ischemic stroke, a week or so before the onset, will be yawning due to cerebral ischemia and hypoxia. Yawning can reduce the pressure in the thoracic cavity, increase the blood volume of the heart in the superior and inferior vena cava, increase the blood output of the heart, and improve the blood supply capacity of the brain cells. However, this improvement is temporary, so frequent yawning often indicates that ischemic stroke may occur in the near future.
  Middle-aged and elderly people, especially those with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, if there is frequent yawning without incentives, should not be taken lightly, should go to the hospital for examination in time, under the guidance of doctors, actively treat high blood pressure, high blood fat, etc. Stroke control is in the bud. In addition, in daily life, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases should be light in diet, avoid high-fat diet, quit smoking and alcohol restriction; oral low-dose aspirin to prevent thrombosis; pay attention to maintain mental optimism, emotional stability. These have a positive effect on preventing the occurrence of ischemic stroke.
  Older people generally sleep less, but some elderly people not only sleep in the morning, but also often sleepy during the day, even sitting down to watch a book or watch TV, they can not help but sleep. Even unconsciously fell asleep. Many people think that it is normal for the elderly to fall asleep. In fact, it is not the case that the elderly can sleep.
  First of all, love to sleep can be a sign of heart disease in the elderly. Under normal circumstances, when the heart contraction function of the elderly is weakened, the brain will have hypoxia, and the hypoxia of the brain will cause the nervous system disorder in the elderly. Sleeping is one of the manifestations.
  Secondly, love to sleep and be alert to cerebrovascular disease. If the cerebral blood vessels of the elderly have hardened, atrophied, and lipid deposits, the permeability of the blood-brain barrier will be reduced. As a result, hypoxia and ischemia will occur in the brain tissue. Over time, the phenomenon of hypoxia and ischemia is getting heavier and heavier, and the elderly may suffer from cerebrovascular diseases such as cerebral infarction and brain atrophy. At the same time, brain tissue ischemia and hypoxia in daily life performance will cause people to always sleep, as well as changes in sleep frequency and sleep time. Therefore, the elderly love to sleep and be alert to cerebrovascular diseases.
  Once again, the old man’s love for sleep may also be a precursor to some chronic diseases. If the elderly suffer from chronic kidney disease, diabetes, chronic liver disease, hypothyroidism and other chronic diseases, the body’s metabolism is reduced, and some toxic metabolites in the body cannot be excreted smoothly, which may affect the regulation function of the human autonomic nerve, resulting in frequent Love to sleep, sweating and other symptoms. Therefore, if the elderly often have symptoms such as falling asleep, sweating, etc., they should go to the hospital in time to prevent various diseases as soon as possible.
