1.Neurasthenia:

Early symptoms of cerebral arteriosclerosis, mainly manifesting as headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, drowsiness, a sensation of tightness and compression in the head, memory loss, and fatigue.

2.Emotional abnormalities:

Early onset of irritability and lack of self-control. As the disease progresses, expressions become apathetic, and lack of enthusiasm for familiar friends and surroundings occurs. Patients may become easily excited, sometimes experiencing unnecessary sadness or laughter. Work performance may fluctuate between negativity and enthusiasm.

3.Poor judgment,

initially characterized by an inability to concentrate for extended periods, reduced imagination, indecisiveness in problem-solving, and a need for assistance from others in handling sudden situations. Individuals may also exhibit alarm and worry when faced with unexpected occurrences.

4.Autonomic dysfunction,

manifested by a positive skin scratch test (reddening and swelling of the skin after being scratched), cold hands and feet, sweating throughout the body and locally, premature graying and balding of hair.

5.Abnormal movements,

in the middle and late stages of cerebral arteriosclerosis, patients may experience unsteadiness while walking and turning, characterized by stiff, slow, or unstable gait.

6.Epileptic spasms,

mainly manifested by paroxysmal, spasmodic convulsions in certain parts of the body, sometimes accompanied by symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, such as increased voluntary movement and tremors. Facial expressions are lacking, speech is low and hurried, standing posture is bent, limbs are stiff with slightly bent joints, and walking is erratic and unsteady. In severe cases, paralysis and coma may occur due to cerebral arteriosclerosis bleeding or cerebral thrombosis formation.
